My Life in Pictures - Week 29

I'm participating in a Ravely Summer Swap and I got 2 packages!  One came from Etsy but I am standing strong and not peeking at the seller's site. We don't open them until August 22nd though or until everyone gets theirs.

Google maps Street View car sighting on the way to work!

My husband hid a card for me in our tea cabinet. He usually gives me one on the 18th of every month (the date we were married in February) and the number on it is how many months we've been married. He's very creative! 

During a storm on Friday afternoon, a tree near our house fell and crashed into our oak tree! We lost power for ~9 hours and some limbs on our tree, but thankfully our house and deck were ok, as were we.

My Life in Pictures - Week 28

More books!

Most of the pages are done and all the fabric is cut.

Old and new Volvos side by side. We're keeping the old one (1990) too. What a difference 26 years makes!

July 4th blueberry cobbler with strawberries and ice cream!

Plugging along on my knitting.

I'm finally getting around to putting cards and photos from our wedding (in 2012!) into a scrapbook.

Ready to cut fabric for my next quilt!

My Life in Pictures - Week 26

I'm participating in the Summer Reading program at my local library. My name is on the bottom red line, on the left. It took a while to find!

Neat clouds on the way to work.

How many scientists does it take to change a light bulb? Technically we were just removing it because it was flickering until maintenance came and changed it.

More books for my Summer Bingo Card!

My Life in Pictures - Week 25

We got a new to us car! It's a 2012 Volvo XC70 and so far I love it!

Currently {July}

Reading:  Lots of books for my Summer Bingo Challenge! More about them at the end of the summer.

Watching:  Olympic Swimming Trials. Not that it was a surprise, but it was still exciting to see Michael Phelps qualify for his 5th Olympics.

Knitting:  Finally got to the 3 color section of my pink and brown shawl!

Quilting:  I started a making a quilt made up of simple blocks (4" square plus 2 rectangles) with this fat eighth bundle.

Project:  I also just started a second scrapbook using the photos and cards from our wedding reception. I made one with all of the shower cards and this one has been on a my "To Do" list for a year or more.
