Yes, it's Saturday, and yes, we finally went kayaking again. we've missed the past two weekends because of a tiny little medical issue I was dealing with. All is well, and it felt wonderful to be out on the water again. We had just bought our new boats, and they'd only been in the water for about a half hour the weekend that we bought them. What I found that day, was that my new kayak is a lot "tippier" than my old one, and I was feeling more than a little nervous about going out today. But once we got away from the dock and really started paddling, all my trepidations passed, and it felt great! We were on a nice sized lake, and we actually encountered some wind that was causing small white caps. No spectacular photo opportunities, but I took a few shots to show that we had blue skies again.
The blue skies were a very welcome sight to me, because last night I drove home in the worst rain storm of my life. Never have I seen rain coming down like that. We had almost 2 inches in about 15 minutes.
I did have a very nice surprise waiting for me when I got home, though. My second August BSA block from Aileen, a new member of BSA. Because I'm collecting patriotic Red,White, and Blue stars, she also included a book! It has stars for all 50 states, and she said she'd had the book for a long time, and didn't think she would be using it. How sweet is that? Thanks Aileen.
Yesterday was special for another reason, too. What do you think it was?
Today when we got home, there was a lovely thick envelope waiting by the front door, from Mary P., my mug rag swap partner! Inside was this beautiful mug rug, and some bobbin bikinis. Now, I've never heard of bobbin bikinis before, but I can't wait to try them. Do you all know about them? Have I been living under a rock?
Mary's quilting is awesome! And I just love the acorns and oak leaves. I can't wait for fall to get here so I can start using it. Thanks Mary!
And now I'm going to go watch some TV and do a little stitching. Sunny
