Checking in....

Hey there!
checking in again. I am sorry I haven't been blogging regulary. Have tons to show you and no time to sit and blog. Well, any extended time. You know with the pics and all. I am going to be working on the Cathedral quilt block tutorial over the weekend. First, I have to get a new memory card. Got my Dad one of those digital frames for Father's Day and used my memory card to dump the pics onto the frame with...so, now I am needing a new one.

We've done a lot of landscaping...well, planting things. I have some of that to show you as well. I am sad we still haven't planted anything in the garden yet. I guess it's rather late to do that now, seeing it's July already. Bad timing I guess. We planted on Memorial weekend last year and this year around that time we were on vacation. Since then, we've had a whirlwind of stuff to take care of around the house, inside and out. We are tackling it all one day at a time as we have time.

Hope everyone is having a wonderful summer so far. I check everyone's blogs daily and seems as though we are all enjoying the sun, fun, family and for some of us, the beach.

Have a safe and wonderful 4th of July weekend.Pin It Now!

We are home from our trip to the beach. We headed back east to enjoy some time with family on the Eastern Shore in MD.

I was hoping for some early morning walks on the beach to see the sunrise and late evening walks on the beach to see the sunset. Oh, and let's not forget a little sun and fun in the water as well. Well, that didn't happen. It rained the whole time we were there. The day evening before we left and the morning we left the sun came out. But you know what, it was okay anyway. We spent time with family, played games, did a little outlet window shopping. I really didn't see anything I wanted to buy. We ate some of our fave foods we can only get at the Eastern Shore and most of all we rested and relaxed. Isn't that what vacation is all about? So that we can get renewed and refreshed .

I will be busy this week finalizing some Vacation Bible School things and then VBS starts this Sunday. So, I will be out of pocket for about a week posting. When I return, I will have lots to post. I will have some pics from our vacation, a tutorial and some other things for you.

Until then, have a blessed day!Pin It Now!
