I am so thankful for so many things lately.
I started training for my new job, and it is nearby so I can run back and forth to work for a week on less than 1/2 a tank of gas. I have finished the book training, now I am working on the skills training.
Our garden is doing well, tomatoes, sugar snap peas, zucchini.
We got a good rain Sunday morning so I didn't have to water!
The youngest daughter and her four children came to play on Friday. We played outside almost all day long, there was only a short time that we were in the house to eat lunch, and watch a movie while they were digesting and headed back out the door. Later after DH got off work the oldest daughter and her two daughters came. We played outside, had a pizza picnic and played some more until the fireflies were making there appearance. Sorry no pictures were were too busy playing. But my raspberries can attest that they were here. The grands picked it clean!
DH is a mechanic and I was having problems with my vehicle. My little SUV is old but it is paid for, which is very nice. The steering control arm and linkage needed to be replaced, but DH after looking at it and was convinced that he was not going to be able to do it without removing part of the coolant lines, a couple of the brake lines, drop part of the axle from the frame, which would mean he had to replace part of those lines, and they are hard lines which need to be bent into a configuration and they are expensive. In his estimation it would take about $500 for him to fix it, just in parts so just not worth it. He worked on it Saturday and he only had to loosen a couple of things, no fluid lines had to be removed, or loosened, and he decided to push backward instead of forward and he had it fixed in about 1 1/2 hours instead of the 2-3 days he was thinking, and the part which was fixed was only 1/10th of his original estimation since no fluid lines had to be replaced.
After I complained that I had run out of the orange fabric for my block, I was digging through a pile on my table and I found 2 small squares which were just big enough for me to finish the Rolling star block.
I am off today, the forecast is for rain, and storms and DH is at work so I can have some time playing catch up to the group sew along, and then the possibilities are limitless.
