Birthday week

 This is the big week of my birthday. There is still time to enter my surprise birthday giveaway. I am looking forward to it and surprising the lucky winner with some nice things.
The last few evenings has been working on the last of my wedding presents that I have been embroidering. I will be sharing them with you in a few days. I have enjoyed making them.
My week will be a little hectic. We already know that we will be doing lunch on Friday. I just have to make up my mind what I would like because who's ever birthday gets to chose the menu.
I don't feel that old until I look at the ages of the kids, grand kids, and the number of years that we have been married. I can still run if I absolutely have to, but prefer not to do so.

 We have one more horse show for the year. It has been enjoyable to watch even though it has been hot at times. It is fun to watch the expression on the faces when they place.
I thought I would show you my table runner that I completed. I finally got the pictures taken. It has a set of 4 napkins to go with it. The design on them is like the big 4 leaf clover in the corner.
I have one set of Christmas pillow cases done and half a set of another one done. My Christmas bells are finished including the lace on the edges of the pillow cases.
 We had our family reunion the first Sunday in August. There was 4 brothers and two sisters there with our extended families. I got to meet the youngest member of our family. Her name is Harper and she is ll weeks old.
It turned out to be a fair weekend. The storms had been to the North of us and the south of us. We listened to the weather all the way home and watched the clouds. You never know anymore just how fast the clouds can appear.
I thought I would show you a picture
Harper and her mommy. She seems so tiny to hold. Of course her grandma is looking forward to baby sitting.
School starts for my youngest grandson tomorrow and the older two starts the 23rd of August. I don't know where the summer has gone, but it sure has gone fast. Have a good week.
One last thing I have been able to read your blogs, but blogger has been given me a little trouble. I will now see if it will let me publish my post. Take care.
