A Visit to the Zoo & a Finish
We had a very BUSY week last week!
On the 4th, our son, DIL and our three grandsons arrived. They stayed with us until Sunday night, the 10th. We took a few adventures during the week, with the best one being a trip to the zoo. Now, what 2 year old doesn't love a zoo? And what grandparent doesn't love a zoo?
We had a great day for our outing. We saw many, many wonderful animals. I think my very favorite was the giraffe. There are so many of them at our zoo. It was fun to watch the trainer feed one of them some lettuce. Have you ever seen how LONG a giraffe's tongue is? My pictures are clickable, so be sure to look!!!
This evening, I finish my August LHN sampler. I used the same substitution flosses as in the July piece. I am very happy with how they look on this one as well. This is finish # 30 for the year & #11 of 15 for the New Project Challenge.
Our group from church went & saw the last 3 quilt gardens yesterday. We spent the bulk of the day at the Shipshewana flea market thou. You never know what bargains you will find there!!!
We also stopped at the bulk food store. I always buy a BIG BAG of popcorn when I go there. Yesterday was no different. I got a 25# bag. I put it in smaller bags & freeze it.
I am very behind on blog reading & commenting. Please forgive me & PLEASE don't stop commenting....I will get back into the groove of things.....this week was play catch up from last weeks busyness!!!
Have a great weekend & thanks for stopping by!
