Well, most of the kids are back in school. How many of you did a happy dance when school started? Elizabeth is off to college. We won't see her until Thanksgiving break.
I must say I have been disappointed in this year's summer. It was very soggy and not very warm. I didn't spend much time in my swimming pool this summer. Mom got it it emptied and still has to clean it and put a little water in to keep it from blowing away. But the pool is pretty much ready for winter.
The nice thing about the cool weather we've been having, Mom & Grandma have left the back door open so we can go outside play and do other things whenever we want.
Moda and I had a few cases of zoomies today. We chased and zoomed around the Shop and out in the backyard a few times today. We had a friend bring a little girl over to play with us. We "attacked" her with lots and lots of doggy kisses. We had fun with her.
I'm seriously thinking about an afternoon nap after getting the newsletter done.
We have gotten in Quilting Treasures "American Honor" collection. Mom, yes, you read that right,made up her own little quick pattern using the fabric.
