This past week was crazy, out of control.......
Volleyball tournament in Canby, Nicole's been sick, I've been sick, I layed on couch all day yesterday with the worst migraine of my life, work, school, swimming, did I say volleyball? Will be glad to see the season end. Basketball starts up right before it ends...............I need this glass of wine......................

I dropped him off at school this morning and as usual I always wait to make sure he goes thru the gate of the playground before I drive away.
We were a little earlier than usual so their weren't very many kids on the playground. So I see Tyler head toward one of his friends.
I'm so glad I stayed for a minute.
I'm not even sure if they boys spoke but they did a cool, complicated handshake that had obviously been practiced. And then separated to go talk to their other friends. So cute. Like a secret "hey, dude, what's up" type of handshake. Love it.............

I took a quilting class about 8 years ago with my sister Donna. I made this pumpkin quilt and have had the top done for, ummmmm, about 8 years. I forgot (and don't have the time or patience) how to sew the borders, finish the backing and machine quilt it.
I just like to make the quilt tops.
And when I garden I don't like to weed, just plant the flowers.
And I don't like to make cupcakes or cookies but just like to decorate them. So I guess it fits my personality.
So last year I BEGGED my mom to finish it for me. We went to the fabric store and picked it all out. Then my grandma got sick and my mom spent a lot of time taking care of her.
So this year I overheard her saying she was going to sew something for my sister so I didn't let that one go. I called her (and begged again) for her to dig out my quilt and please, please, please finish it. She finished it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Happy, happy day. I LOVE IT. SO MUCH. Makes me SO happy. Thanks mom!!! It looks great. Means more to me than you know. Doesn't take much to make me happy. I have been using it every single day. And it's fall so it's perfect.........................
