It seems I use winter as a reason to quilt more and then summer comes and I use the heat to stay indoors and sew. Guess you could say I like sewing. This week will be in the high 90’s with a heat index in the 100’s. For many of my Facebook and Blogging friends they would be happy with this weather, but I am spoiled. With that said, I was planning on what to do with the 3 yr old granddaughter and decided to put a quilt under the tree and have a picnic. She loves doing this. I remember sitting on a blanket or quilt under the trees to play. This was before air conditioning. Between the hours of noon and 2pm was “the hottest part of the day” and in SE Texas hot is hot. NOT hottest. We would have the garden hose for water and sit under the tree. This was before Dad brought an old cement water trough home for us to “swim” in. This was so much fun and the neighbor hood kids would come to join in the fun.
This is what I want to do is make wonderful memories with each of my grandkids. This seems to be a 2 day post, sorry.
We went out and found flowers, acorns, “moon” rocks(these are shinny rocks) and then had an afternoon of Candy Land, and Shutes and Ladders. Was great. I did make parrots and dragons out of clay and as one of my daughters told me the parrots looked like 2 legged dogs after a night at a bar. So glad my audience was a 3 yr old. Was a wonderful day and I love it.
Today will bring the finishing touches on my Quilt of Valor. Hopefully I will be able to post pictures of it soon as it is a surprise and I don’t want the family to see it.
Hope you enjoy your day and in this heat stay hydrated.
