This and That

 Sun going down with a nice breeze while sitting at the 6th of July Cancer Benefit. It was a beautiful day, warm, but not to hot. The kids had a lot of fun even with its scary moments. They all had a little dare devil in them at one time or another. 
I know I enjoyed the day with the weather cooperating that was the best part. 

Some areas have had some rain, just depending on where you live what you got. They had a nice shower around us, but I got nothing at the house. The picture of grass is what you get when you let one play with your camera. He thought it was cool and it kept him quiet. He had his first lesson last night back on his horse after she had thrown him off on Saturday. It went well and then big brother got on her and rode her some more. He is not scared at all, just his pride was hurt because he didn't want people see him cry. I liked the picture too. 

 I got my orange blossoms and butterflies table topper done. It was fun to make and kept me busy. I used my daughters table to put it on. She can seat 12 around the table when we are all there. We used the table  the 4th of July and ate together.

My hands have been busy to keep them from getting stiff. It is different after working for so many years. All of my stitching gives me something else to think about. You never know what life will hand you, but you just roll with the punches and deal with it. 

My cow brings out the farm girl in me. We were talking about farm machinery at the nursing home and the prices of new today would give you a heart attack.They would need to farm a lot of ground just to make a payment. You take a big gamble that your crops will be good. 

I hope you all have a good weekend. Mine is going to be on the quiet side doing whatever I want to do. I know one thing on the agenda is getting my car service, but other then that who knows. Today is being spent resting after not feeling good. Don't know if it was the heat or something I ate. Anyway I am feeling better. Take care

Your sunset is very pretty and I love your table topper, Shirley! It makes me want to stitch something. It was a pretty day here in MO today. Hope we can have a few more of these before the high 90s begin again. Hope you're feeling better! Take care.
