  1. Katy seems like they go through spells where a color is thicker than usual for awhile. I have had very thick turquoise and amethyst---much more so than paddy green. Then it seems as if the multicolored ones are a little on the thin side. I have been sorting through a few things trying to find a couple of things I have missplaced. I am assuming I missplaced them and someone wasnt being "helpful". I went out to get the mail and stopped to pull a few weeds and before I knew it I was drenched in sweat.
  2. Its hotter and more humid today. Weatherman said we are having July weather------ and it was snowing just 3 weeks ago. Spent morning working on rotating winter and summer clothes, doing laundry, and a few things outside. Just checked my phone and saw my aunt in sent pictures where she has been to the cemetery to decorate my grandparents and her sisters graves. I havent been down there for a few years. Guess its appropriate since its her brother's/my dads birthday. Think sis and niece are having lunch at one of dads favorite restaurants today. Katy maybe this was what was wrong with your sister all along and maybe now she will feel better. At least thats what I am hoping.
  3. Wow Katy! Nice pile of squares and basket nearly empty.
  4. Frank is so cute with his adorable new toy.
  5. Those little bunnies are so cute.
  6. Nice hats! You are making fantastic progress while the rest of us seem to have hit a brick wall.
  7. Going to be hot a hot and humid one. Mowing has to be done and its going to be a hard job. Couldnt get to it because of all the rainy days which of course made it grow faster. Hope everyone has a great day.
  8. Me too. I appreciate that you share patterns you find. I think the freeze pop covers are cute but wonder about the wisdom of gluing on accents because realistically I think they need to be washable. The new pink outfit is adorable.
  9. Saturday was a once in a lifetime day for me. I saw the Broadway musical The Lion King at KC's Music Hall. It was fantastic. We went with my sister and niece. My niece took care of ordering tickets. Instead of putting us all 4 in one row she put us two to a row in rows that were one behind the other and aisle seats-----aisles the cast go down. She and my sis had seen it in New York. Afterwards we went to a new Mexican restaurant. It was very good. They had a mariachi band wandering the floor.
  10. Katy your tub of flowers sounds so pretty. Share a picture when it blooms out. You are doing so good working through your yarn. I just cant seem to get started--- just dont feel like it. For me it was an event of a lifetime to see The Lion King Broadway musical. I couldnt believe I was sitting there watching it and that at times cast members were right beside me---I mean I could have moved an elbow just a bit and touched them. Costuming was so fascinating----like the giraffes. If you really looked you could see the human walking on stilts while using taller ones with their arms. I was amazed they could walk across stage using 4 stilts at the angle it threw their bodies let alone with the long giraffe neck added. The way they blended puppetry with costuming so you definately get the feel that the humans are representing animals. Look at the photo in this article of the giraffes and cheetah. The cheetah is a puppet. https://thegreenroomchronicles.wordpress.com/2013/08/23/disneys-the-lion-king-the-musical/ Lyn having a heck of a time here. I have had to resort to making a list of things I missplace so I will remember to look for them when I get a chance. Dh kept saying he needed to make marina visits before the holiday weekend so I finally pointed out that its this weekend when was he going to do it? But hey last Sat he was looking at his baseball schedule and said they must have made a mistake because they played the Yankees Fri night not Thurs night. Well I looked at it and pointed out he was looking at last years schedule. Heaven help us. Spent the day on the road running lots of errands including those marina visits. One is near the cemetery where my folks are so we took flowers to leave in the vase. Also stopped and got new wheels for our mowing deck as the old ones are cracked. Signal is not good so shall see if I can post.
  11. Lyn go see it! The mix of puppetry with costuming is absolutely incredible. Its amazing how the people blend into the costuming to represent the animals and landscape. I think that really sets it apart from anything else you have probably seen. I am a Disney fan and Lion King is one of my three favorites anyway. (Beauty and the Beast and Little Mermaid being the other two). I have the cd of the music from the animated because I liked it so much. I saw Big River years ago at an outdoor theater and You Cant Take it with You with Don Knotts at a dinner theater but I have never seen anything that compares to this. It was fantastic being on an aisle seat and them stopped beside me. My niece got me the bag when she saw it in New York cause she knows I love bags and Lion King so I wasnt going to buy anything. By the time it was over I decided I had to get the book explaining about how they pulled it off plus lots of photos. Then I got the combo cd sound track dvd behind the scenes. The things they show and tell you about the set, puppets, and costuming---just incredible. Things like the footwear is hand painted to match each performers skin tone and if they go on vacation and come back with a tan they are repainted to match. The show had its funny parts too. Dh says he was really glad he went.
  12. Oh good. I was just thinking about you and little tribs birthday. Your little duck is sure growing
  13. Darn it Lyn sorry about the truck. Sounds about like our house where you have to have 3 vehicles in hopes to always have one that is working. It rained yesterday, last night and this morning. We really needed and wanted to mow. Had a very busy day yesterday and no signal out from home when we finally got back. Yesterday was a once in a lifetime day for me. I saw the Broadway musical The Lion King at KC's Music Hall. It was fantastic. We went with my sister and niece. My niece took care of ordering tickets. Instead of putting us all 4 in one row she put us two to a row in rows that were one behind the other and aisle seats-----aisles the animals go down. She and my sis had seen it in New York. Afterwards we went to a new Mexican restaurant. It was very good. They had a mariachi band wandering the floor.
  14. Mary Jo I would love hockey. Its just not on my tv stations. Yep baseball is pretty grim here. We expected a bad season but not this bad. One of the local stations does a segment called The Rant. People can call in and voice their opinions /comments good or bad on anything. Last night one guy called in and said he had two Royals tickets on the dash of his car and someone broke in and left 4 more. Right now the local news is focusing on following the Chiefs new qb around. Hmm its just 3 months til football starts. Lyn she must be tired from all the company even though she doesnt remember it at least hoping thats all. Today was sunny here but very hot.
