Not much going on. I have been trying to do work out in the garden pond area and weaving. I am making progress. I might get the pond done before the end of the season!
Have a great day.

My trip to Illinois was fantastic! My sister and I had a great time together. We went to Lock 13 of the Mississippi River in Fulton, Illinois. We actually got to see a barge, that was docked, and then saw a dining boat (Celebrity Bell). We got to watch the locks open and close, along with raising the water. My sister had told me, that it was the first time she went, that they actually had a boat go through the locks! We went to a water park and all of us ended up with sunburns. We forgot the sun block! My sister and I went to a bluegrass festival (my first) and it was fantastic. I loved the music! We also went to Galena, which is a tourist trap but we had fun looking in the shops. We also went on a lake and rented paddle boats for an hour and paddled around the lake. It was fun and I will sure miss my family and especially my dear sister, who showed me a fantastic time! The week ended all too soon!
I was glad to be back home, it is nice to see the family, but I always love to come home to my own bed and to my hubby. I think he missed me a lot more than I missed him. He is not used to coming home to an empty house! I am used to being home without him if he has to be gone for more than just a week, but not the hubby! He isn't used to coming home and not seeing me. He was pretty lonely those two days, but the niece and nephew came over and had dinner with him on Saturday and he sure was glad to have the company. I wonder if I will be able to leave the next time without him?
Now it is time to get back to work, lots of garden to get weeded and need to get the pond area done! Of course, the horses need some attention along with trying to get Sirocco back home where he belongs. The trainer is going to start working with Sirocco and I before he comes home and then some more when he does get home. We have hay that needs to be done and of course a million other things that get done during the summer months, along with trying to get the weaving done. I am headed down to get my new business cards! Can't wait to see them.
You have a wonderful day.

Well, tomorrow is the day we leave for Illinois. I am a little worried about driving across country without the hubby. I have never gone that far without him with me. Just once, but that was with two other people that were the same age as I was. I am taking the kids and they are going to help drive. (that makes me nervous just thinking about that!) They are pretty good drivers but they haven't really been driving all that long. I think that I will have to make sure I do most of the driving, or make sure I take a nap while they are driving.
I hope you all have a great week.

I just finished my rugs and they are being washed and as soon as they are done I will post pictures of them.
Not much else is going on. Next week I will be gone to Illinois to see the family. I don't think anyone out home as Internet, so there will be no posting until I get home. The hubby is staying home, (he has to work). The kids are going, which will give me two other drivers!
Have a great day or evening!

RJ doesn't like the water much and he could care less if we caught any fish!
Hope you are having a great weekend.

I have been going out and walking for three miles everyday this week except on Monday. I am feeling a lot better. I would love to lose at least 20 lbs. I don't think that will happen, but I will be happy to lose whatever I can; as long as I don't go up in weight, I will be ok with.
I finished a warp of rag rugs today. I will post pictures as soon as they are finished. (hem, washed etc.)
Have a great day.

We got to the lake Friday and it was a constant bout of rain showers. It didn't rain constantly but we really couldn't take the boat out. Saturday, of course was our cooking day, and we didn't get to go fishing that day either being as we didn't get back to camp until it was almost dark. We were pretty exhausted by the end of the day. Sunday was beautiful and we did get to go out fishing on the boat for half the day. Then it was pack up and load up the vehicles and head on home. We were all pretty tired by the time the end of Sunday rolled around and everything was put away. I think I am still recovering today! Lot's of laundry now, and of course, still some things to be taken care of.
Hope you all have a great week, and tomorrow I will post some pictures at the lake.
