It has been a busy time of year for me…

I have been having a lot of fun and having a lot of great adventures.  In mid-August I went to my parents house for a party.  I met 2 of my sisters and their families there and we had a party.  Our parents were celebrating their 60th wedding anniversary.  Wow! 60 years is a really long time.

Happy Anniversary Mom & Dad!

We had a really great party!  We sat around the dining room table and laughed and told our the nieces and nephews funny stories about their parents and grandparents.  My parents have been a wonderful example of love, family and fun for the past 60 years.  We all have wonderful memories of growing up laughing, teasing each other and developing a great sense of humor.  It was a wonderful party!

in late September for our 29th wedding anniversary Chuck and I decided to take a day off and go to the Common Grounds Fair in Unity, ME.  After sitting in traffic for 30 minutes without moving an inch we decided to redirect our fun.  We went to the Botanical Gardens in Boothbay Harbor instead.  We had a very nice lunch and then walked around the gardens.  It was a beautiful fall day.

After walking around the Gardens we went into town.  We walked around town – had an ice cream cone and then headed home.  I am pretty sure we must have stopped at one or two quilt shops along the way – it is so hard to pass by one.

I have been doing a lot of sewing and quilting and cooking.  I canned some wonderful salsa and some very sour pickles, I made several dinners with home grown peppers.  Aren’t these beautiful!

Be Kind…
