Turning the pages of the calendar here on my blog....July, August, SEPTEMBER!!! it's hard to keep up if your calendar days go by as fast as mine!!
 It's been a good summer here starting with a visit from my sister Jan!! She lives in Yakima and took a trip over here to spend time with me in my sewing room. Jan is a huge help and encouragement to me. We sure have lots of fun and laughs stitching together!! She too is a night owl which makes it more fun staying up late with someone to giggle with!! I have given her the nickname of Kiki and set up an area in my sewing room called Kiki's Korner just for her!!! I can't believe all the things she accomplished while she was in her little corner.....outfits for all the girls....mending for me, christmas presents started, she made me two aprons, and a very cool bag!!!! 

We also made some time for some fun.....
we got pedicures, went to lunch,
spent a couple of day with all the sisters!!
We made bread, had a picinic, went to Multnoman Falls, Crown Point, and took a day trip to the beach!!

Jeff and I had the opportunity to head to the coast for a weekend with friendsspending time golfing, relaxing, shopping, and enjoying time away!!

The Colors of Summer.....

The summer has been good...but I so love FALL!!! Call me crazy but I love the weather change, the cool crisp mornings with the colors of the trees changing. This past week our weather teased us with a taste of some unnormally cool nights and days and our trees have already started dropping leaves!!
