Random Things

Seems like summer just slipped away from me this year.  Here are a few random pictures from the last month and a half.

 The view from our motel room on a short vacation that we took mid July.

Time spend with grands. I should write up a post with more about the gardens we were visiting on the day of this picture.

Some canning has been getting done.  This is blueberry butter and salsa.

I have been trying to keep up with monthly projects.  These are the Aurifil QAL blocks above for July and August.  Below are all the blocks up to date.

And here are both colorways of the CAL I am following along with on the Moogly blog.  These are going to be gifts for my mom and mom-in-love.

I have almost finished two more sets and I believe there are three more blocks to do before putting these afghans together.  I am looking forward to finishing them.

I expect your summer has flown by quickly also and I hope it has been a good one!  Blessings from our home in the woods!

Your photos are lovely! I hope you had a great summer, the older we get-the faster time passes!
I got 25 lbs of tomatoes today to make salsa and guess whose recipe I'm using? Yours, of course! We went thrifting today as most Saturdays. We have done very well this month at the Knitting Mill, it is so much fun. Glad you like my chalkboard, I think it turned out very well. I still have the other half to make me one! Have a blessed Sunday!
