Much Better

After our bike ride on Monday, we took another day off on Tuesday—this time to do more shopping.  We left at 9am and returned at 6pm.  Most of that time we spent driving to and from stores.  Unlike our last shopping trip (see Who’d A Thought blog), this trip was very successful for me.  I finally found a quilt shop with the fabric I was looking for.  We  located the big JoAnn Store, and there was all the stuff I had come to expect from that store.  I found my orange beads, a whole rack of Halloween charms, and batting.  Yay!  These finds allowed me to finish my bracelet project today.  I became inspired and made three bracelets in all.  Now the beading stuff will be replaced by sewing stuff again.


Duane was busy also.  He finished shaping and smoothing this rough cut pile of grandkids’ Christmas ornaments.


Now that they’re all nice and smooth, he has started carving in the details.


As usual, we took time out to practice pickleball this morning.  We are finally getting some relief from the hot weather.  This whole week the temperature is staying in the 80’s with nighttime lows in the 50’s—about 10 degrees lower than normal.  We’ll take it!

Work day tomorrow.
