"Oh say can you sew?"

 LiLi spent the day at our house on Veteran's day.  We had a long list of "things to do"
 First up was sewing.  I showed her some ideas & she wanted to make a bag.  She went "shopping" in my stash of fat quarters & ribbons & picked out her supplies.  I just folded the materials different ways so she could visualize how it would look & let her decide how to make it.

 Yes I let her use "real" scissors
 Don't you love the concentration!
 After trying different ways for the handles she cut the ribbon.
 I showed her how to fold down the top edge & iron it in place...No Mark I did not let her use the iron!
 I didn't take pics of the actual sewing because she was sitting in my lap....that part is a little tricky....she's not tall enough to sit on the chair & reach the foot control so we have to get creative!
 Here she is turning it right side out (please ignore my messy sewing room)
 The finished product....we actually made two of them.  One for her best friend Gabby.

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
