We are having our family reunion on 6/28. It will be held at Cascade Lake in Hampstead, MD. So far we have 60 people coming. It should be a lot of fun. This is the 2nd reunion in 10 years. Cascade Lake is a man made lake. They can swim, fish, . It has a water slide and paddle boats. Hope it is a nice day for everyone.

Rain, Rain, Go Away!

Woke up this morning and it was raining and raining and pouring. It was really coming down in buckets. I had to go to Maryland to my brother & sister-in-law and they had a tornado warning down there. I am back home and the sun is shining. Thank Goodness!

Sunday’s NASCAR Race

The race Sunday is a road course race in California. I do like NASCAR but the road courses are just boring. I guess that I will watch it but I will not like it 😉

I really like my embroidery machine. After I figured out what I was doing wrong, it became easy. It makes beautiful embroidered butterflies! I even tried some fonts and you can make them large or small. Now I have to figure out what I am going to make.

I purchased a Brother embroidery sewing machine from WalMart. I had to buy some embroidery thread and actually embroidered a butterfly yesterday. Once I got the hang of it, it was easy. Now I need to find out how I can put it on a small t-shirt without sewing through the back of the t-shirt.

Got the fence estimate

Posted: June 12, 2009 in chain link, dogs, fence

I got the fence estimate today. It is over $5700! This is a chain link fence! I will be looking at different fence installers, most definitely! My poor dogs have to wait longer to run free.

I have 2 dogs = Muffin (Polish Lowland Sheep dog) and Valerie (Coonhound) and I was considering getting a chain link fence for my yard. Muffin pretty much stays in the yard but sometimes she wanders especially if you are not watching her. Valerie on the other hand will take off. I got her from a shelter. When I let her out I have to put her on a leash. She just needs to run free. So I had a guy come over tonight for an estimate on a chain link fence. He said that he would get back with me in a few days. I hope it is not too expensive 🙂

I have been searching Ebay and the net for embroidery sewing machines. I have went to 2 Bernina stores and one Brother store. Some of them are so expensive. Sometimes I am not even sure I want to get one then I think about the things I could make for the grandchildren, and I want one.

Did you see Kyle Busch take the guitar trophy he won for the Nationwide race and smash it? What a dork! I bet there are a lot of people who would have loved to have that trophy and would have respected it.
