Summer Winding Down

It's really hard to believe but summer is winding down. School starts on the 17th. Today we held the final event for the Summer Reading Program at the library. Over half of the reading records were turned in with over 35,000 minutes read. I know there was more reading than that done, but some participants didn't return their records. Today's event consisted of a pizza lunch and handing out the earned prizes. Everybody wins something and even the kids who just earn a candy bar are happy. Two little boys who won the big bottles of pop were deliriously happy!! This picture is of the group attending today.

Our Summer Reading Program is for kids and adults.
I'm slowly getting a little more done on the sewing/quilting front. This container of QSTs is cut....the question there enough?  I need 448 pairs to make hourglasses.

We have some good clouds building up. I hope we get some more rain. Wednesday night's was wonderful, this morning's shower was nice, but we need so much more to break this drought.  This weekend is the local annual celebration and tonight is the classic car Cruise Night. If that doesn't bring rain I don't know what will.


  1. I'm not a quilter but I read your comment on Sam's blog about the remedy for diabetic neuropathy. If you are willing, please email me at grandma_kr at yahoo dot com and share your experience. My hubby has such pain in his feet but the rx's are not helping. Would like to find out some details on your experience. Thanks

  2. 448 PAIRS?? Seriously--you can do all those itty bitty pieces--but not a yo-yo???

    We got .55 rain here at the camper--and wind. Hardly any rain at home--over the last 7 days maybe an inch total--but when it falls .15 here and there--it evaporated as soon as it hit in the heat.
