Perfect Picnic Day.........

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

As we were coming back from breakfast this morning, Bill and I both commented almost simultaneously what a perfect day it is....I guess that's the way it is after knowing each other for so long. We met 4th of July week, 39 years ago!! We were at Myrtle Beach and he was taking pictures with his fancy, dancy camera....I still remember the first time I saw him.
We were reminiscing about other 4th of July's....one in particular, back in 1982. Bill had been transferred to Detroit and had been working there for a while. I was still living in NC with our oldest daughter. We missed each other like crazy!! But, he couldn't get away to come home for a visit. We had some dear friends in our neighborhood that worked for an airline and they offered to fly with me to Detroit for the holiday!! You can't imagine how exciting it was for me!! I'd never been to the Midwest and never flown on a plane either!!! It was a wonderful flight and we stayed in a wonderful Holiday Inn Holidome. The room Bill and I stayed in had a perfect view of the light  show out on the Detroit River (connects Detroit and Windsor, Canada). They were setting off fireworks from a barge. I have yet to see a better show than we saw that 4th of July!! That was the beginning of our adventures as we left behind NC.......

This 4th of July we won't be in Detroit, at the beach or the mountains, just at home in K-ville. We are going on vacation later in July to Mexico.  We will however be cooking out and going to see fireworks later. That's one good thing about living where we live now....lots of festivities for all the Holidays. In particular, fireworks in Greensboro, High Point and Winston-Salem...all within a 20 minute drive.

I have changed the Special of the Week over at my web site. It will be Prim FALL Shelf Sitter Blocks for this week. Still adding a new Fall related items on a daily basis....anyone have any new ideas on Fall goodies? I can't seem to come up with anything that knocks my socks off. My sister is working a few more things...I can't wait to see them! Her things are soooo different than mine. She does the really prim and grungy look!

I have listed a few new OOAK things today. They are made from a wonderful calico....I made a bonnet and got it listed yesterday and it's already sold. These match the bonnet. Wish I had more of this fabric...it's all gone now.

Well, I think I'm gonna try my hand at crosstitching again.  I've been wanting to attempt it for awhile now, but just haven't had a chance. It was one of the first crafts that I ever did when I first started crafting.  Back then I found it slow and tedious! Right up my alley now!!   Bill is STILL tweaking the new servers. I'm glad I don't have to pay him by the hour! LOL!!

HAPPY 4th to you all!!
Hugs,
Shari
