Making the Most of Summer Days











Finally! Out for Summer Break, and I am trying to make the most of my time. Previous summers have been pretty much spent sitting in a chair looking at what everyone else is doing (fb, blogs, tv). This summer I am determined to have a productive summer. "Productive" meaning out of the chair. Another difference this summer is that we joined the local gym. I've enjoyed swimming and exercising on the machines, and playing tennis on the many tennis courts. The heat of summer has arrived, making an early start necessary for the tennis. The unhurried days allow leisurely breakfasts, especially with all the beautiful berries available now. Goodness! Already a week down! Only 4 more to go. It's amazing how fast the time will fly!

I'm also in a sewing mood. I started the Farmer Wife Quilt for my daughter and it is quite the project - a little more involved than I like, so I'm not sure if I'll do all of the blocks. I may just choose the easiest ones and do them several times. I need 50, I think, (they are 6 inch blocks). I've got about 10 made, so still a ways to go. I would like to complete the blocks by the time I have to return to school in late July, and have the quilt completed by the first cool fall day. That doesn't allow much sittin' time!

I hope you're having a great Thursday, thanks so much for stopping by!
