Fun Day SunDay

I have been a companion volunteer for Hospice for the past few months.  I sit with my patient on Sunday mornings while her family attends church together.  Today when I arrived, the Granddaughter, her primary caregiver, told me she was staying home from church so that I could give her some quilting lessons!  She has an embroidery machine, and had embroidered Pooh designs on 15 squares, and was ready to try to put them together. A new baby was coming home from the hospital today to join the family, and the quilt was meant to be a baby gift.   So I started my day with teaching someone how to trim blocks, line them up, and sew them together.  Gotta love getting a new person into quilting!
When I left their house, I was amazed by how beautifully, gorgeously, wonderful it was outside, so I headed home, loaded up the hubster and his lawn chair, and off we went.  First stop was his favorite little restaurant in Shepherdstown, WV where he had a bowl of won ton soup, and I had a yummy California roll.  He ate all his soup and ordered a bowl of miso soup to go.  We're making progress!  He ate a bowl of soup last night, too.

The we drove  just a couple of miles to the C&O Canal towpath. I've been needing to get out of the house, and couldn't resist taking a long walk today.  I left hubby here, and I went off for a solo walk.
I saw this when I was a few feet from getting on the towpath.  I asked if I could take his photo, and he maneuvered around so that I could get a shot. 
Then I set off with my walking stick and my camera!
How awesome is this mushroom that someone found??? I think this is a chicken of the woods mushroom?
The towpath was quite popular today,with walkers, runners, and bikers.  There were couples, singles, and families.  I'm glad the temperatures are turning cooler, so I can start taking advantage of this wonderful park again.

Counting my blessings.....Sunny
