    To finally finish cleaning out my spare, downstairs bedroom so that I have my very own "Quilting Cave"...I only get to work on it in between running my husband and/or my Mom to their doctors' appointments, grocery shopping, etc.Oh well, tomorrow is another day... :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup: Naomi

    Swim swim swim as much as I can! Play in the water, jump up and down, do summersalts underwater, practice dolphining, and take my baby dog for long raft rides. :) Perfect!

    We will be working around the yard ... fixing shed, and bricking on sidewalk at our front gate, quilting :) and general Summer stuff. We won't be taking a trip this summer, we have a mini reunion in October in Fla! We will be going to see Harry Potter Theme Park ! And the rest of the time enjoying family and touring around. Should be fun :)

    A couple of short vacations, more like long weekends. One long vacation. I guess the rest of the time I'll be getting ready! LOL

    wow, my list is long. In between two trips, one to florida and one to binghamton, ny, we'll be painting the walls in the finished basement, grout and seal the tile job down there, hopefully put in a new driveway, and try to relax in between. Retirement hopefully next year!

    Staying out of the dry heat hopefully or in the pool. Its 102 today. Going to a bluegrass festival this weekend. They even have a large room set up for quilters with the music piped into the room. Going to Mt. Lassen area, (California) to do some trout fishing and camping. Just retired, had a hugh, hugh, hugh yard sale this last weekend as we are downsizing stuff! Now painting inside, new inside doors. Remodeling and repairs never end.

    Kids coming home the first week in July, then take a granddaughter out to Vancouver Island to visit. Other than that I'm preparing for ordination as an Anglican Priest so I'll spend a lot of time reading the books that the Bishop wants me to read.

    I just want to sit in the hammock chair more often!

    (Setting what I hope is a truly achievable goal...)

    Last year it was wet and cold most of the summer so I did lots of quilting. I hope this is a better year but hasn't started out much better. If/when it quits raining we might get some sunshine and heat. I want to be outside every waking minute this year and to #&!! with housework. BBQ, Hot Dogs & Burgers on my menu!

    June 21st came and went for us. My husband had a carcinoma taken off the back of his hand; we cooked shish-ka-bobs, and in between it really stormed.

    Next week we are off to Cumberland Falls State Park, Kentucky for a few days. We get a cottage and take our youngest daughter and one grandchild(not hers) each year. It's a great way to spend quality time with each of them. I don't mind the simple cooking and it is a lot cheaper than the lodge accommodations.

    When we get back, it will be time to move our middle daughter into her 'new' home. Right now she is staying with us as she sold her other home.

    Will be ready for some real 'me' by then which happens at the end of the month. Looking forward to the Kokomo,In meet and greet, not to mention all that shopping. :):)
    needed to edit this to :-) :-) :-) :-)
