Well it sure got hot rather fast, a lot faster than it does this time of year. Maybe it is a little payback for our lovely spring we had that lasted longer than 1 week. Ha!
Our plants at the retreat house are enjoying my extra attention (aka water) and seem to be thriving more than usual. It was also time for some fresh mulch; it is amazing what a difference that makes. Our Rangoon Creeper froze back to the nub and it is really taking off and is finally blooming! I love that vine!
My sister’s husband, Steve got us Rangers vs. Astros baseball tickets on Saturday, so David drove us to Dallas Saturday morning. We drove directly to Penny’s house and then she and I let David rest while she and I drove to Frisco Mercantile for a little retail therapy. They have a mix of antiques and repurposed things in consignment booths. We had tons of fun looking at things that brought back lots of memories. I did come across some cute patriotic yard décor that had to come home with me.
After that we drove to Penny’s and picked up David for a late lunch at Grub Burger Bar. It was a great hamburger joint while Steve had to work. Later, Kyle and Kara drove over with the kids and the 4 of us went to the baseball game while Penny & Steve watched Adley & Bennett. We had a great time and the Astro’s won which is always a plus.
Sunday morning all 7 of us (except Steve – had to work again) went to Haywire for brunch. It was very good, loved the extra family time. About noon, David and I headed home.
Before we left Deer Park, I got 2 of my quilts ready for binding. Nothing like a 4-hour road trip to enable getting binding accomplished. I got one done going up and one done on the return home. Wahoo!
First one was my 30’s Triple 4-Patch
Second was S’mores!
I am truly blessed; I hope you are blessed by your daily threads. Love and hugs,
