So there we were... this past Wednesday night... sitting at a picnic bench enjoying a California cheeseburger, curly fries and root beer at our favorite Car Cruise... when the announcement blared over the loudspeaker...

"Welcome to our LAST car show of the season"...

Ummmm.... what?!?!?!

I almost cried right there on the spot! Yes, I was full aware that this weekend was Labor Day weekend (3 days off!)... but, it was just that moment that I had realized that this glorious Summer was coming to an end... it was fun! In fact, the best Summer we've had in a loooooong time... but, it just went by so quick.

Alas, I will enjoy the September days that are now upon us... even as the last rose of Summer is just beginning to bloom...

Apologies for the blurry pic, but we have already begun to feel the effects (winds) of "Hermine". I think that by the time it reaches us, it will be a tropical storm... but, the winds are going to be the main element for this area.

So for now... off we go... in our 1967 Buick Sport Wagon... to enjoy another one of those "last of the season" car shows... all along Main Street in a local historic town...

Until next time... enjoy each day for the gift that it is!

While I did have some wonderful days off in July... most of the time was dedicated to just relaxing and being outdoors in a near perfect Summer! Local car shows and road trips out to Pennsylvania were on the agenda... there is so much to see and appreciate... just need to step out that door and get behind the wheel of a comfortable car and GO! :-)

Then... the typical hazy, hot and humid Jersey weather rolled in and we have been in air conditioning for the last week (maybe two) or so... and thunderstorms... and today has brought some torrential rains... lots of flooding just south of us.


I'm safe in my basement hooking away!

More rains and thunderstorms tomorrow...

Can you believe August is only a day away?

Until next time... enjoy each day for the gift that it is!

Four Petals and Tulips

So far, so good with having some time off to get going on some projects here... first up is a hooked rug titled "Four Petals". It is an adaptation of an antique rug. I picked this up from The Old Tattered Flag while at the Lancaster hook-in this past Spring.

I finished the punching on the doodle that I had started a month or so ago. It is titled "Tulip Doodle" and is also a purchase from The Old Tattered Flag. I do have an idea of how I want to finish this piece... just need to put the time aside to get going on it! :-)

That's all for now... I figure if I do quick posts when I get the pics uploaded... it will save me from postponing writing a super long post for months on end! ;-)

Until next time... enjoy each day for the gift that it is!
