WORK IN PROGRESS

Two of my latest tea towels. They will be pressed and the final pictures will be taken before I list them in my etsy shop. I have the edges to put on another one and I will soon have five done.
We took time out last night for the 4Th of July celebration at my daughter and son-in-law's house. We sat inside their new garage to eat because of the fine mist that was coming down. It didn't stop anybody from shooting off their night time display which really had some neat ones . You wonder how much was spent. One look like the top of a hot air balloon. How far it floated we don't have any idea. The last time you could see it, it looked the size of my thumb. One of their neighbors shot that one off.
You could watch the fireworks being shot all of the way home. It is amazing the type that we saw. It was 1 A.M. the last time I saw the clock and they were still shooting them off in our neighborhood.
Today we took a drive before it got warm. It is 82 degrees and the temperature will be going back up for the rest of the week. We did have a week of relief from the triple digit heat index.
We went over into Kansas, going to Troy, Atchison, Weston,Missouri, coming home through the scenic rolling hills. Some of the wheat have been harvest and a lot of the crops have finally got planted.
We had our tractor drive for Camp Quality last weekend with 270 tractors participating. It was really awesome to sit along the highway and watch the old tractors go by. We had several states represented. We had a couple of tractors that I had never seen before. Just looking you knew that they had spent a lot of money restoring them.
We hope you all had a safe and Happy 4Th of July. Take care.

Love the teatowels. Glad you got to go for a ride and get out. You won't beleive it, but it was only 73 here in Cincinnati for the 4th!!
It's finally starting to get warmer in the middle 80's,they say it'll be in the 90's by weekend.
The humidity is going up too, which for here it gets really bad
The mold is still terrible, even the cooler temps didn't help that.
