It's a dark and stormy day here and it feels cozy here in the living room. I can look out over Rice Creek, which is up about 2 feet after the storms. Tomorrow though its going to be hot and humid so it will be the perfect time to head out.
Missed you peeps!

I am having my coffee out on Linda and Mark's patio enclosure. Its a crisp morning here after a stormy day. Linda and I didn't let it stop us though, we headed out to Buffalo to Buffalo Nickel Antiques. What a wonderful store. Of course driving around and seeing all the green fields and beautiful farms is great. We finished up with a nice dinner at D'amico Brothers in Wayzata.
My vacation is winding down. It will be wonderful to see my family but sad to leave Linda behind. What is going on with you? Happy Weekending peeps!

Good Morning! Yesterday was fantastic. Linda drove us out to Hutchinson and we went to the Thimbleberries Studio Store. That was a treat, I haven't been for years. The antiques store we had been to there many years ago was still there and we enjoyed a walk through it. We finished up with dinner at the Minnetonka General store. What fun!
A big storm is moving through, but I slept like a log! This morning Linda and I are planning our day and watching Matlock. WONDERFUL! I hope things are good with you! Xo

Don't know why I thought yesterday was Monday? Weird. Anyway tried to post earlier but my little phone blogger app is messing with me!
Yesterday Linda and I went over to see Roseann of Rosebuds Cottage in White Bear Lake. Lots of inspiration there that I can share when I get back. And maybe a giveaway! Or two!
Anyway I am having so much fun with cousin Linda I will be sad leaving her behind. She lived in California and we were great pals back in my late 20s and early 30s and has always been a part of my life, and never far from my thoughts when we are apart. She and cousin Laura were my best of friends. Being separated hasn't changed my feelings about them.
Anyway being here has me all mushy and full of good feelings about family and friends. I hope you guys are doing well. Tell me all about it! Xo

Good morning from Minnesota. I am drinking coffee here in cousin Linda and her husband Mark's house watching the birds at the feeder and the water in Rice Creek glide by. It is so peaceful. Last night we sat out in their patio enclosure and listened to the June bugs hit the screen and laughed and caught up. It's like no time has passed since our last hello. There will be a lot of laughing this week.
I had a wonderful drive with Roseann yesterday. I have never been through Kansas and Iowa and it was beautiful. We stopped at a small town (Valley Junction I believe) and had a sandwich at the general store. She drove me past Meridith Publishing in Des Moines so I could see where American Patchwork and Quilting comes from. But there was a lot of laughing and chatting so the hours flew by.
Check out the cute mug for my coffee, a red canoe in a coffee creek with a cup of coffee in it. My kind of mug. Have a lovely day!

Holly Blog: My Favorite Things...236...The Day After Market
Hi from Iowa peeps! I am heading to Minnesota with Roseann. So much fun. Just went by the home of American Patchwork and Quilting. Lovely!
While I am slacking off, Holly has blogged about our booth at Quilt Market! Check it out!
See ya later!
I had a great time at quilt market. Lots of friends to catch up with, which I know isn't the main reason we are all there but is certainly a wonderful part of the experience. I was excited to show off Pam Kitty Love.
As most probably know, Holly had the flu, so Frankie attended the show with me and was a huge help. It was fun hanging out with her. Lots of mothers and daughters here this time and that was great to see.
Excited to be heading to Minnesota today with Roseann! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!
