Up for Air...

     Whew, July is about over, it was a super fun but super busy month! I won't bore you with the details, but I am looking forward to August for sure!  I am hoping there will be cooler wheather in store for sweaty me soon! I was barely able to get any quilting done, but am looking forward to finishing up a couple of projects in the next week or so, I will post the pictures, I promise! I am even beading a mini-quilt.
     I got home last night, after being in meetings all day and after dinner (nope, didn't do the dishes, saving them for today), I decided to head down to the quilt studio to sew a couple of rows together and Mr. Handsome pipes up "Oh, I was trying to sew my pants down there and I kind of messed up, maybe you could help me" Can I just tell you I was not in the mood to mend (I am actually never in the mood to mend, but he just doesn't see it), so I didn't even go downstairs, just reclined on my bed and read and played on my phone until bedtime, so no sewing done yesterday either. I did remind him that the new-ish neighbor does mending, etc. for a business and is a single mom that could use the income, etc., so we'll be heading over there today after work.
     I am toying with updating my blog profile picture, the one that is up there is 9 years old! Do I get a free pass until it is officially 10 years old?  I'll have to mull that over, I haven't seen one of me that I like any better, so it may stay for a bit yet.
     I got a little sunburn last week, I took Babygirl to the pool and I put sunblock on us, but failed to put any on my back, since I usually just lie around, facing upward. BUT, I did not take into account that I would be going down the big twisty slide, and off the diving board, etc., so I got quite a nice burn on the back! Ouch, it's been a few years for that!  We are going again this week, but I bought some of that newfangled spray on sunblock, so I will get my back this time.
     I was going to take Babygirl to see "Brave" this week, but she is going with her other Grandma, so I may have to sneak in and see it all by myself (sigh).
     Hope your summer is going well and I should have more to "show" next time!

July Quilt Fair - Utah County

Just a note - if you live in Utah County or can get there - get to the Springville Art Museum this Wednesday, July 18!  It is the annual Utah Valley Quilt Guild's Quilt Fair! There will be over 20 vendors, a wonderful silent auction, free quilting classes, a garage sale, yummy lunches AND the Quilt Show is going on at the same time, but best of all, the show, classes, etc. are FREE!  Hours: 9:30-3:30.  (Not sure where the Springville Art Museum is? - just google it!)

We currently have our  Babygirl staying here for a month! We are down at the condo, where it is 104 degrees.  We are hiding out inside, about to start a Yahtzee game.  We took Austin to Zion's Park yesterday and did the Narrows.  She loved it, she swam all around in that somewhat muddy river (There had been rain the day before).  She looked like a little otter.  We had a picnic lunch, and just generally enjoyed ourselves.  We have been to the cool "Splash Pad" over here in Hurricane a few times too. We still have plenty of things left to do on our "list" for her visit (See Brave, Hit the Hobby Lobby, make good-smelling soap, etc.)
     I have decided that I am in love with air conditioning!  Between these hot flashes and the heat, it is my bestest friend!  At night, I keep a really wet washcloth in a bowl next to my bed and it is doing wonders for those middle of the night attacks! 
     Life just continues to get busier, so I thought to myself,  I have my laptop down here on vacation, even if the internet (from Mr. Handsome's hot spot) is a little sketchy. So - a post from my vacation - aren't you lucky! 

P.S. I did finish my star quilt AND it hangs straight - a miracle!
