Quilt Shop Hop
This was the second weekend of archery deer season.† Mark still has yet to hunt.† The weather did not cooperate this weekend.† It was hot, up to 95 degrees on Saturday.† There was also a full moon which didnít set until after sunrise and brisk winds out of the South. This just wasnít the right weekend to deer hunt.† So we found other activities to keep us busy.
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
was the Quilt Shop Hop.† There are 10
quilt shops in central
We were going to be gone a long time, so we let the dog ride along.† It meant we had lunch in the car.† He got his share of scraps.† He mostly found the sunny spot in the back seat.† Because Wink was out shop hopping Friday, he spent the day in doggy day care.† He seems to really like that, but it leaves him tired out.† So he napped all day Saturday and was restless Saturday night.† Nothing like being out of synch.

It is my understanding that it is not possible to accumulate too much fabric.† That seems to be the theory Wink is trying to test.
Halloween quilt projects
On the way home, we stopped
by the Honda dealership in
evening, we dropped the dog off at home and headed to the quilt shop East of town.† We
stopped at the land on the way East.† It
was dry and didnít show much activity.† After
the quilt shop in
more vintage cars
more of the same
Sunday our project was to finish planting the bushes and perennials that Wink bought to replace the overgrown ones we took out two weeks ago. Since the weather is supposed to cool off and we are due for some rain it made sense to get it done today.† As usual it was a huge job. We worked in 3 bags of cotton boll mulch and 2 bags of soil and then planted it all. By the time we finished around it was almost 80. Time for some ice water and lunch.
Itís hard work but someone has to do it! Iím still smiling J
Sorry I was too tired to snap an after picture! Wink kept me busy inside hanging up pictures in our bedroom and moving boxes down to the store-room. We treated ourselves to some Chinese food for dinner and soon will collapse!
