This & That

I finally got my new glasses and I can seeeeee!!

There are some things I have to catch up on and I'll be back next week with something that resembles sewing. My fingers are itching to get back to the sewing machine and some fabric play.

It's finally beastly hot like a regular August. Hot and humid and sticky. We are still in the weather pattern that is wet, gray, and oppressive though. Not a nice summer at all. I hope this doesn't last too long or we will have a winter to reckon with.
I've been checking up on what you are all up to and I see so many lovely quilts and especially love the Doll Quilt exchanges and many designer blogs that have popped up lately.
My husband is taking off Fridays for the next little while to use up some of the time he has accumulated at work. We are heading out to spend the day together tomorrow and have a nice lunch out east. Possibly find a farm stand with some tomatoes for BLTs. There is a really bad tomato blight here on the east coast that is also affecting the potato crop. We usually have beautiful Jersey tomatoes by now but the pickin's are slim and the tomatoes are hard, thick-skinned, grainy & fibrous inside. Yetch! Hope to find something better at some of the eastern farms.
Anyway, Back next week with something blog worthy. Have a great weekend.

Hurray for new specs!!! We're going to see a pic of them on you, aren't we! ;-)

Enjoy your Fridays with Roger! What fun to look forward to every week.

Cool, breezy North Dakota hugs to you. It's been only in the 70s for the past couple of days and this girl is not complaining one bit!!!

Yea! New glasses! I hope they do the trick.

We're actually expecting a "chilly" 88ยบ today....much better than the triple digits we've been having. As for tomatoes, I love good ones but most of the ones we get taste like cardboard!

Hey Dee, hurray for new glasses *VBS* So sorry you are getting stuck with the yukky part of August weather. WI has been so very much cooler than normal, it's like NOT having summer this year. Every day feels like Sept. and our morning temps find us in the low 50s. Daytime..maybe 72...really strange.
Sorry to hear about your tomato crop. I'm not sure how WI will do, as it's not tomato time just yet. The sweet corn and cukes are suffering the lack of heat for sure.
Have fun on your outing, come back and sew and see everything!! Big hugs, Finn
