Thought I died ...


and the hogs ate me? Nope! I'm still here. I have been busy. Patti came over the last couple of days and sewed with me. I went up to northern MI last weekend to our cabin. Just Garry and I. The county fair was going on, so we went to that. Spend one day in Alpena, MI, just wandering and looking at lighthouses. The pic is an old one that I took many years ago, and one that we stopped at last Sunday. I've got lots of projects going on, but I haven't taken the time to take any pics of them. It's been very cold here in Michigan. Isn't August suppose to be miserably hot? I turned the heat last night. Could not get warm. Weird weather this year. It's not helping my tomatoes get ripe either. I think there will be a lot less tomato canning getting done here unless I go and buy them by the bushel. Oh well....there's always next year. The ones I have picked and we've eaten have been very good, just not getting ripe very fast.
Time to get ready for church. I'll try to take some pics and get them posted soon. My friends Val and Patti are thinking of going up to the cabin when the leaves start changing and having a mini-retreat of our own. I don't go up there often. I used to go a lot, but Garry and the guys use it for a lot more than I do and you know a man's idea of "clean" just isn't the same as a woman's in most cases. I got a lot done last weekend up there and I'd like to use it before they do much damage again. I'm off to the showers.....I know you all needed to know that......giggle!

I think a mini-retreat at your cabin is a marvelous idea. I'm so glad you posted...I was one of those folks a little worried about you! How's the nicotine battle going?

Hugs and purrs,
Linda and Piwacket

It was great you were able to get away for a few days. Your mini-retreat sounds like a great time for your friends! I was beginning to be concerned about you--and your friend, Val. I hope things continue to go well for her!

I'm glad you posted again I was beginning to wonder what happened to you. I bet it was great to get away to the cabin and a mini retreat sounds like you'll have a great time.

Thought about you yesterday when I pulled my Bento Box pattern out of my To-Do basket! You're right - it has been a strange summer with the weather. I won't complain though since the humid/hot weather isn't exactly my cup of tea.

Look forward to seeing the photos.
Hugs,
Cathy

Glad to hear you are alive and still kicking. Sounds like you had fun up north. The retreat sounds marvolous. How's the quitting going?
