Morning my pretties!!

I have been up and lots weighing in on my mind and therefore I didn't sleep well. 

I got an order to make a Lobster Newboen prop. So I have been working on that. Wish the orders would come in everyday instead once every 8 months or so. But it is what it is.

Thank you for the blocks katy. The gray one is pretty! I can't wait to put this one together. The Browns and grays are going to be beautiful. Thank you for the help!!

We got some rain Sat night with a whole lot of storm.  Ok at our house but on over in city there are still a good number without power.  It may not be as hot but the humidity is very high.  Trying to troubleshoot tv reception issues and probably will have to replace the outside antenna, cable, and or hookups as reception is lost when it rains and takes a day or two for all stations to come back.  

Well Linda you did far better on your Michaels than my last trip.  Would have been okay but they had the cotton on sale and combined with the senior discount they gave me on top of that----well all I can say is resistance was futile.

Katie here are the lapghans.  The first one uses the blanket stitch.  The next two are big granny squares reversing on each round with sc borders.  Last is another mat for my nieces dog--2 strands hdc.20170723_124333.thumb.jpg.ef8adee1cf55404703a168ad01079b7e.jpg20170723_124550.thumb.jpg.319fac2e5049422a01fd6adf507c5531.jpg20170723_124428.thumb.jpg.7f4008d0d37dbb66842b36f57efb741e.jpg20170723_124936.thumb.jpg.0245532054f71b21b16ea4fee901d030.jpg

Katy really pretty squares.  I am thinking about all the little things to fill a shoe box.  I wont be making slippers  either but might buy a pair of socks to add.  Maybe add a washcloth, tooth paste, lotion, packs of hot chocolate ....I think they have even suggested bandaids, antibiotic ointment.  

Linda sounds bout par for the course.  At least it shouldnt take as long to get a tire

We spent the day mowing and we are both just beat.  Heat index was over 100 today.

Good Morning.  Love the lap ghans and squares. They are really pretty.

Up early and out to get the paper.  Also had to change the bulb outside near the pool.  You can see the fan and light out the window when we take pictures of the tote.  When that is blown out, it is so dark in that area nd the kitchen.  So for the last time we changed the bulb.  To much for us.

Pineknott, sorry to hear about the tire.  Hope when you get the car back, everything is fine.

#1Crochetfan I do hope your Summer improves.  Keeping you and all others who need it in my thoughts.

Well, today is picture day for the tote.  Back later.

#1 glad you checked in as I had been wondering about you.  Hope things get better.

I have been wondering about Lovin2Crochet too.

Linda I can believe the 6' weeds.  They love this heat and humidity and seem to shoot up over night.  

Mary Jo hope this bulb lasts for a very very long time.

Its another hot humid one here today.  More storms expected tonight and there are still about 1000 without power from Sat nights storm.  My eyes are gunky and I am congested from mowing yesterday.  Well is everyone ready for the Great American Total Solar Eclipse on Aug 21.  We are on or just outside the outer edge of the  band of totality and it sounds like things might be absolutely crazy that day. One article says 12 million people live within the band of totality and another 25 million live within a day's drive of it and that the population inside the path of totality may double that day and that it may be one of the worst traffic days in national history.  I have a friend who is with a group flying into the area from CA to watch it. We were going to try to get together and watch it at the airport in St. Joseph (which is in the center of the band) but learned that it was going to be way too crowded for comfort there.  They are going to rent a van and try to find someplace farther north west.  I have another friend that lives in St. Joseph and they are expecting lots of traffic problems that day so much so they are recommending businesses to shut down.  She said we could come up and watch at her house but I think we will be staying at home.  Of course I keep thinking it could very well be too cloudy to actually see anything except for it getting dark and then light again.

I would say yes to the nest,with the up coming hurricane season with its winds,so many critters get displaced  Do you still have the address,if not I'll pm it to you.Thats really thoughtful to include the paper towels.

Good Morning everyone.  Not a cloud in site this morning, but that could change.

Need to do some shredding, usually do this after the taxes are done, but have not felt like it.

No inspiration this morning for crocheting.  Need to do something, just can't figure out what.

Well off to see what is going on in the Ville. Have a great day.

Another bad storm last night this one with too much rain coming way too fast.  Dont know how much over 6 inches we got as that is what the rain guage holds and it was overflowing. Dh was supposed to drop his car off at the shop on his way to work but we had some water in the floor this morning so he stayed home.  After listening to calls on his pager we are thankful he stayed home because he wouldnt have gotten very far as roads and bridges were  under water in all directions out of here.  A car washed off just around the corner and the fire dept had a hard time trying to find a way to get to it that wasnt under water.  I think the only reason a truck made it was the water in some places had dropped enough to cross. Thankfully the person had already made it out of the car ok. It was also bad on over in the city too.  Still trying to troubleshoot losing tv reception after it rains.  At least I have 2 stations back for now.

Good Morning.

Sorry to say they do not talk much about the bad weather, only till the weather comes on.  Then we hear about your weather. Stay safe.

Packing up the tote today.

A friend lost her Dad a couple of weeks ago, I wanted to give her something, but did not know what.  I am making a clothespin Angel.  It is Red/White/Blue.  Her Dad was a Vet and he is being buried in a National Cemetery. I wanted something that would represent him.

Well, off to do some packing and then to finish my angel.

Have a great day.  Be back later.
