Everyday Activities

I feel so boring! I'm not bored but I can't think of a single interesting thing about which to report to my blogging friends. Terrible? Not really. I've had a marvelous day!

Before 8 a.m., my doorbell rang. Considering that my doorbell rings about twice a year (and that's when the school kids are selling stuff), I was quite surprised. Went to the door and a nice man was there. Of course, Speck was chomping at the door trying to attack. The man asked if we owned property on 1389. Yes . . Vince is out of town and I'm thinking .. great, what's happened out there. It was the water company and they needed a right-of-way signed. I thought it was funny that he tracked us down at the house in town. Guess that's the advantage (or disadvantage) of no one else in this town (probably this state) having the same last name we have. That was easily solved.

Chad and I had lunch at Olive Garden. He got out of school a bit before noon and was off today. The food was good and we had a good visit.

It's nice and cool. The windows are all open. I love Fall. I'll actually be glad to have a freeze so these darned tomatoes will stop. I pick tomatoes every day and I can't eat them all, the neighbors are supplied, I've canned all I need for winter and I hate letting them go to waste.

The afternoon was spent sewing on the October "Quilt for an Hour" project. It's looking good! Maybe tomorrow I'll be far enough along to show you a picture.

Me too, me too! I'm in the home stretch with the first one. I'll look forward to working along with the next one in real time, not weeks behind.

I'm going to try the October quilt. Have you tried to dry any tomatoes? Jenni

Send some of those tomatoes my way! Drying sounds like a great idea, too! Can't wait to see the October quilt.

i'm also looking forward to seeing the October challenge.

Looking forward to the October quilt. Sounds like you had a great day! Hope you have another today.

I used to live in a town where if you didn't lock your car at the post office you would come out and find zuchinni and summer squash on your front seat... Too funny about your tomatoes, but enjoy them! I used to have yummy tomatoes on Cape Cod, but don't have such luck in Canada where it is colder.

Cheers!

Looking forward to that October quilt. Wish Kentucky was a little closer, nothing better than homegrown tomatoes and I would be glad to help you out by taking some off of your hands.

I know what you mean about your tomatoes. We had zucchinis (do you call them courgettes?) coming out our ears this year, and there's only so much you can do with them before you get heartily sick of them!

Looking forward to the October quilt, I've had great fun with August's quilt. Its on the home stretch and hopefully soon to be finished :-)

I am a mere 5 hours from you. We could meet halfway and I'll take your tomatoes AND bind some of your quilts. Although, in that amount of time you will have bound about 5 quilts! LOL I have no clue how you bind so quickly... it takes me at least a week to do a decent-sized quilt!

I really enjoyed your last hour-a-day quilt, and can't wait to see what you've come up with now. :)

Now I know where all the tomatoes went *s* I have only gotten three cherry tomatoes from my plants this year. I guess I bought lazy plants *s*
I'm hoping to participate in the 1 Hour Quilt in Oct. Can't wait to see it.

Sounds so familiar... We were ALWAYS the only ones with our name!

I love having lunch one on one with my boys - I found it was a time we really talked about things that mattered to them and to me.

Oh, too bad I am not closer as I would happily take some of those 'maters off your hands.

Fall is in the air too---gorgeous day and what we have been waiting for since the last good days of spring.

I was just thinking about what I want to do for my October quilt project . . . I forgot you were making another quilt. Maybe I'll check it out.
