Where did the days go ??

I know it is a bit early for Halloween.........but that is my favorite time to decorate !!
LOL.....I will show you more later.

Can't believe it has been more than 2 weeks since I have posted here. I just don't know where the time goes.

I even have some new pictures to put on here.....hmmm, bet I haven't even downloaded them off my camera.

Well.....to fill you in - I was very busy at the quilt shop - We had the Indian Summer Quilt Show in Fargo on Sept 15 - 18 ....so that kept us very busy. Now that is over and we are working very hard getting ready for Christmas. You have to keep a few months ahead you know in any kind of retail business.

We have had some wonderful "Indian summer" weather. Just GREAT days to be outside, and the mosquitoes seem to have left. Today a girlfriend came over to help me work in the flowerbeds. She has the cutest little rototiller !! I still have a bit more to do....but I got too hot outside and had to come in.

It is just hard to think that soon the weather will be cold and the white stuff will make an appearance. But it better NOT till after Halloween.

9/11 - Ten years later

Today is the 10th anniversary of 9/11 - the day that changed America and all of our lives forever.

I am sure you remember the exact moment you heard about the events of that day.

Like today.....it was a beautiful blue sky, warm and sunny, what should have been a regular day in September. And then........the unthinkable happened.

My recollection of that day: I was laying in bed at 7:30am, I had just turned on the radio and I heard ........????. I didn't know what I had just heard, but I got out of bed, went to my sewing room and turned on the TV. As I watched I never thought of terrorism - I thought the radar had gone crazy and planes were going berserk. And I thought it was a small plane that had hit the tower of the world trade center. I saw the plane hit the second tower - time stood still.

I called my husband and they were all watching TV at work....... My husband had worked for many months in NYC and had been back home now for a few weeks. But he would have gotten off the subway in the bottom of the WTC at approximately that same time and crossed the street to go to the building where he was working. I am so thankful he was home.

Ten years ago ?.......It seems like only yesterday. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who lost loved ones in the events of that day - in New York City, in Pennsylvania and those in Washington DC. We will never forget.

God bless the USA.

Have a wonderful day...........

Labor Day weekend..............

Labor Day weekend marks the end of the lake season for many.......today and tomorrow you will see many of the docks and boats come out of the water and many close up their summer cabins and say good-bye to weekends at the lake....................

We always hope for one last HOT weekend.....but not the case this weekend. It is sunny and breezy but quite cool by lake playing requirements. But just to be at the lake is enjoyable...even when it is breezy and cool.

We won't be pulling the lifts out today....we are hoping for a couple more nice weekends....to play in the water and ride around on the pontoon.

So for me - this is a weekend of sewing......and putting the final touches on some projects for the quilt shop. I know, I know.......I have not posted the pictures of them yet. LOL...... but they will show up soon.

Just want to wish everyone a fun and safe holiday weekend.
