A little free time...

What an awesome weekend...I am so tired!!  Our son and his three children arrived Friday evening, just in time for pizza.  My oldest granddaughter, Alexis (14), joined me Saturday morning for the annual trek to the cemeteries.  My parents, grandparents and father-in-law all passed away before she was born.  At each stop we had the opportunity to talk about what kind of people they were, how they impacted us, and funny stories and memories.  She had great questions and we had some good laughs...especially when she asked why there was only one date on the headstone for her great grandma when everyone else had two....think about it!

Kiddos these days are so into their phones and computers.  Needless to say, Jacob and Alexis were not thrilled when I brought out the dominoes.  Less than half way through the twelve rounds of Mexican Train they were into it.  Probably they were humoring me at first but I know they will have fond memories of the weekend.  Do any of us remember the joy of surfing the web or playing a video game?  I think not.

I managed a little free time (while they were occupied with Grandpa, doing yard work) to add some sashing to my Spirit of Sacagawea blocks.  I took a picture with my phone.  It isn't a smart phone and I'm not smart technically so it won't be shared here until I take my camera down to the studio....but I think the sashing looks great.

I also worked at adding a few things to our ages old rake and pitchfork.  I think these may have been our original garden tools of thirty years or more.  They both gave up the ghost this year and are now outdoor wall décor.  A little more to do here, just not sure what.
