I decided to do changes tonight. I changes the avatar and banner of my etsy shop and my blog. I was just in that kind of a mood this evening. The weather has turned off very hot this weekend, but it wasn't suppose to. I think it has something to do with the Tennis tournament that comes to town. It has been hot and stormy for the last three years. It stormed bad enough one year that they had to move it inside.
I went birthday shopping today for my youngest grandson, who has been wanting building blocks. He is having a pirate party with decorations. He wants a pirate cake. I haven't figure out that one because he watches Sponge Bob, Dora and others on television. We haven't watch a pirate show when i have babysat him.
My latest project is just about done. It will be Christmas in August. They are both Christmas tea towels. They were easy to take with me while visiting the doctor's office. We will be doing that quite a bit here until we get things back under control with my husband.
We were visiting with some people while I was getting my car serviced today. It is amazing how many people are a caregiver of a spouse. He was the caregiver for his wife of over 40 years. He does some of the similar things that we do like taking drives looking at the scenery on two lane highways. I would sooner drive on the two lanes because you don't usually have the traffic that you get on the major highways.
We had a fly-in today at our airport by people who were going to the big air show in Wisconsin. The planes were neat and you could tell they had spent many hours in their upkeep .We usually have breakfast on the weekend at the airport restaurant just so that my husband could see the planes. He likes planes and trains. I still would like some day to be able to take a vacation by train. The shows that I have seen on television make the routes really look enjoyable and you see scenery that you can't see by car.
I must close. Have a wonderful week

Hi Shirley! Like your new look. Can't wait to see the xmas towels. Sounds like you'll have fun at the b'day party. Hope you and John Are feelin better soon. I think people are taking more drives due to the economy too. It's cheaper and you really get to see things you didn't realize were so close to home. Jim like planes and trains too the older the better. We took a train ride(way before we were married) on a steam engine one Sunday for an excursion they called it. It went from Cincinnati to Danville Ky. It was beautiful. You might check out a day trip by train they usually have lunch on the trains and everything.
Hope you're having a good day.
