Look at all this!

Ha! you probably thought it was going to be something really cool huh??

Well, to me it is! Yesterday we went down to my in-laws and spent the day. My MIL use to do sewing and quilting etc. Mostly making simple things, but she doesn't have time anymore, nor the ambition soo....


I got all her fabric!! Tons of it!

This is a view from their back deck.


This is one of the hummingbirds that frequent the hummingbird bush and feeder.

I read on their deck most of the day yesterday and really enjoyed these guys! Then last night we went to the Lore City festival, it was really small and met up with Aunt Avis, who sells these really cool wooden roses.

Wednesday night was also the classic at Mastick Park. The entire team ran and so did Rich. Here are pictures of each of the boys at the clock. T ran a 22:54, J ran a 24:50 and Rich ran a 33:52. They all did great!

Today has been pretty uneventful, it is supposed to get up to 90 so we are hanging out inside this afternoon. I am working on lesson plans and reading my Book Club book. Hopefully I will get some sewing done! Hope everyone is having a great weekend!!

Super pictures, Sara! Loved that little hummingbird! We had them in NM and CA but haven't seen them here in our area of CO. :( Loved your email and will write in the next day or two, I promise!

How lucky are you, receiving a box of fabric. It would be like christmas.

The hummingbirds are beautiful.

How fun that you got all that fabric! It's nice that it will be with someone who will use it!

Your hummingbird photo is nice! I actually saw one today at my feeder! I put this feeder up in April and this is the first time I've seen one at it! I was so excited...now I get online and this is the second blog post I've seen with a hummingbird photo! LOL!

Any ideas for the fabric yet?

What a super stash, Sara!

Great pics, especially the one of the hummingbird. Usually they are too quick to get a good pic.

Good for the guys! I can't imagine running in this weather. Im hibernating indoors this the oppressive heat and humidity pass.

Have a great week!

Hi Sara, I havn't left a comment in a while but wanted to say Hi because it has been so long! I'm very happy to see that your PIF's have worked out for you. Good to see that you have all had a nice summer. The Garden looks GREAT! Nothing like fresh veggies! :-)
