Happy Monday from my home to yours! I hope you had a relaxing weekend and found some time to do something you love. Saturday a friend and I went to a quilt store near Estes Park; they were having a great Batik sale and I was hoping to get some fabric for the back of my latest quilt. Mission accomplished, plus I found some stencils for hand quilting as well as variegated thread that will go perfectly with the colors on my quilt. Before I left, Carrie dropped off Lily and Copper for the morning and afternoon. The family was headed to the Museum of Science in Denver for an exhibit on Robotics. Copper fits in well here, as you can see when she was sitting near me.
I've said it before, but she has such a sweet temperament.  She's got plenty of puppy in her yet, is coming along with her obedience classes.  Both dogs are such good company for Hunter!  We met both families at Red Rob*n for dinner to celebrate the end of summer-not that we want the weather to change though.  Our oldest grandson had coordinated this activity several months ago, because the new Bourne movie was out and he wanted all the guys(except little man)to go see it together.  I think it was a right of passage-you know  a guy movie with the mature guys in the family going.  The girls piled into vehicles and we headed to Carrie's.  The older girls have been reading a few of the Nancy Drew mysteries and so Carrie had borrowed one of the movies from the library.  It was a hoot to see a black and white movie filmed in 1956.  After we watched it, we had dessert and then the girls played outside.  So much fun.  This is their last week of vacation and we are going to make the most of it~a Tea Party, swimming and lunch at the pool, a trip to the used bookstore where I have a very large credit and am sharing it with my granddaughters and daughters.  I am also walking with friends in the morning as well as hosting my quilt group at our house.  Another neighbor and I have talked of getting together all summer, so she'll be coming to tea on Thursday afternoon, plus another neighbor wants me to go to Christopher & Ban*s for a sale.  I'm already tired.
What do you have planned for the week?

  1. You're keeping busy fur sure! Our pawrents did their long run today so they were gone for about a week. Me and Stanley suffered and were so excited when they came home. Did we tell you it was almost a month that they were gone? This week we are getting ready so we can go to Oregon a week from tomorrow and finally get cool!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley
