Manic Monday..Heading Home

Today will be bittersweet. I have been here in Hannibal since June 24th helping my dad after eye surgery. It will be sad going home, but I will get to see the grandkids and my cats, fish and Molly.

I do dread the near 5-hour ride, but I will read or crochet.

This weekend I tried using my silhouette cutter on my own to make  a set of cups for the nice man and woman across the hall that let me use their internet access.

They are not perfect, but not bad either. It took me a couple hours and half a sheet of vinyl, but I got them done.

I took the cups and two of the crochet dish towels to the couple that let me use their internet and they loved  it. I got dads cookie jar restocked and made him a batch of dough into balls so he can make his own cookies after I leave.  I went to the fabric shop to get some fabric and decided to only get some buttons since I am not sure  what I would be making.  It has been such an emotional day.

My father in law is in the hospital so I think we maybe heading to Arkansas so it may be another week before I can get back to my writing, but I hope to get back to it soon .

I will miss dad, My brother and his family a lot. I love this town, but it’s time to go home.

I hope you are having a great summer

 

Indian Summer

Hello, everyone. Man is it hot here in Missouri, and I am not even home where it is usually a bit hotter and more humid.  This is my last weekend at Dad’s.

Yesterday there was a cool Native American show down by the Caverns. There wasn’t a lot there, but what was there was pretty cool. As soon as we walked up I saw the most beautiful Native American Doll. I had to take her home to my collection.

There were many people dressed in costumes, and we got there around lunch where they were cooking their meals on campfires and in cast iron pots.

Dad got hot so he and I headed back up to his apartment. I need to begin packing I will be leaving tomorrow.
I will leave you with some cute pictures of my niece and four nephews in their hunting gear a bit tipsy.
