This is one of the best pictures of my husband and I that has ever been taken. Chrissy took it while we were sitting on the stone breakwall at Rock River. We had a really good time, Pat and Terry were with us on Sat and Sunday, which was a lot of fun, and Don's friend came over for a couple days too. We had intended to move Chris into her apartment in Houghton on Monday, but Don got a call saying that he had a telephone interview for an intern job on Tuesday and then we couldn't get to Houghton until Wednesday. That meant we couldn't use the boat until Thursday, but fortunately the weather was spectacular and we fished all day on Thursday and Friday. Chrissy and I also found time to bind our quilts on the way up, and I appliqued 2 more blocks of the CWBQ, so it was a lovely vacation. I am so glad that Star Light, Star Bright is done. I have enough wonky log cabin blocks done in the batiks to make another quilt and now that this one is done, I want to put it the other one together too. This one, of course, is personalized, but the other one I'll probably do as a charity quilt or give away or something. Or maybe I'll do wonky log cabin houses, that might be fun. I'll see. The last photo is of my annual garden in the front of the house. The shorter marigolds don't seem to like the heat, they have almost stopped blooming, even though I have been deadheading like crazy. The zinnias and petunias however, are doing great. I put more zinnias in the house today. I so much enjoy having the color in the kitchen. I haven't been over to the veggie garden yet. I gave every ripe tomato to R last week and I'm a bit afraid that every other tomato in the garden is now ripe and must be immediately dealt with. Between those, and the peaches on the counter, and the pears in the fridge, I need to be putting stuff in the freezer, and instead, of course, I'm going to Maryland this weekend. Good grief.
