Another thought that has been on everyone's mind I'm sure is Japan and the horrific events that have happened to those people since last Friday. It breaks my heart to see the pictures each day and to imagine just how terrifying the earthquake must have been. Then to suffer through an enormous sunami just moments later,is more than my mind can comprehend. I hope and pray that they find more people alive soon,and are able to recover from this tragedy.We spent some time last summer with a Japanese exchange staudent and she was wonderful, and beautiful.We were so worried about her when we learned of what had happened,because she lives in Tokyo.
Finally later on Friday we got one message from her on Face Book that she was well and for us not to worry about her. But that is all we have heard,so now our concern has grown as we wait to hear from her again.

But back to my wondering thoughts,I'm dreaming...of.... I guess mostly........TIME OFF! Vacation....and relaxing....reading...oh and creating.....gardening...ahhh...and cooking........I'm sorry there I go again.
I guess my mind is wandering because I'm so pooped! We have been very busy here at work doing our local Home and Garden Show.The show was a success for us,lots of appointments and phone calls. But it's always such a busy weekend that it can take me a few days to bounce back.
In addition to that I have been crazy busy with orders for my felt Campfire.Now I am not complaining it's just that I hate that I have had to keep customers waiting. So EVERY spare moment I have I am sewing,that's why I haven't been posting like I would like to.
So my thoughts have wandered off to memories of Spring and Summer activites. Like days on the lake or at the cottage. Sometimes doing nothing, just sitting, and talking, and laughing while the kids entertain us. Enjoying a campfire and smores made by the grimy little hands of my grandsons, ya gotta love it!

|Floating on the lake,and listening to some tall tales|
|Memorial Day a couple yrs ago.It was so hot that the party seemed to move to the creek.|
|Amy is the only one who has ever found an arrowhead|
|We could hear him laughing on the boat,it was hysterical|
|The kids still talk about how we said we would go back someday|
|Isn't it funny how boys always end up falling in the water before they're done.|
We have buckets full of fossils that the boys have collected. As a matter of fact all of our benches down at the creek are still covered with "valuable fossils".I was remembring how Papa and Preston found an old jar buried under water a couple of years ago.That is a story I plan to share with you real soon.
|Normally we don't let them climb on the counter but he was our taste tester.|
So the sun is shining today ,and I am day dreaming,.........=)
