Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

Oh Happy Day.....

My sling is off... for most of the day... Dr. approved! I start a little rehab on the shoulder... just light until the collar bone finishes healing...but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel. I hate not being able to drive...but really couldn't do any turns safely... with one arm. It is getting old being stuck...with nothing but my thoughts...reminding me of everything that I'd like to get on with. Have to share one photo. taken by my dd in law. She thought it as funny as me. Since we live in Starkville, Mississippi, this is a TAXI(???) that sits in the parking lot of one of the shopping centers. Never seen it on the road...may have to call for a ride...just to prove they really drive it! dd' in law's photo of my lovely grandaughter doing free motion quilting. Can't wait for her to test drive my long arm... she is getting so grown up!

Still alive..... trying to catch up......

It has certainly been a long time. Where to start. The professor has finished all
studying for his comprehensive exams. Yeah!

The fabric shop I work at is closing at the end of August. I had been trying to catch up on quilting... to no avail. I was blessed to be asked to teach a Machine Quilting class for the Mississippi Quilt Association's summer gathering... a wonderful opportunity, and loads of fun with some wonderful ladies. All of our wonderful children and grands arrived for "Camp Grandbob" last Friday.... for a week full of fun. In fact, the oldest Grand, designed T shirts for Camp Grandbob, full of memories from celebrations past. The hillbilly pool was in place, we made homemade ice cream, had Birthday cake for all of our babies, picked blueberries from the wonderful blueberry patch, and tomatoes and squash from the garden. We ate watermelon, ribs, burgers and pizza. Played games, including guitar Hero and the Wii fit. We even had outdoor movies in the back yard, thanks to DS1 and his projection tv set up. Fireworks were set off... most of them safely....but at least one landed on the deck! I missed that I was in the Emergency Room. DH sent me to the store on July 3, to get more citronella oil for the tiki torches...and whilst on the way there, another car, ran the red light....and slammed into me. Broken collar bone and displaced something or other. I am mending but very sore. So won't be doing much quilting for a couple of weeks at least. I am most sad, because the kids arrived on Friday...and this occured on Sat. So not much time to cuddle the two newest babies pictured here. The last photo is post accident... the kids weren't all cooperating...but I love it just the same. No makeup, sling, ice pack and all. Shame. I am picking this out with one hand... so must keep it short.
