~ David has spent most of the spring and summer building his new home show display. Everything on this display he built. (Except for the sign and skirt.)
My friend, Sondra, sewed the skirt. It hides the wheels. Yup, this is actually a display trailer. See?
He built it all from scratch, starting with just two wheels.
It all folds down nice and neat, drastically cutting down on the set up and tear down time for these home shows, which started this weekend.
I cannot express the depth of pride I have for him. (In case you are wondering, this is his website: www.kitalive.com).
~ Texas Rangers VS Detroit Tigers.
Friday afternoon, a wonderful neighbor called and asked if we would like two, free tickets to the game. Heck ya'!
David and Sally went since she is the baseball nut in the house. The poor child....she saw the Rangers lose yet again in person.
Sally: Mom, I think I'm bad luck!
Three games this summer....three losses. And the Rangers are actually really good! In first place for their division.
To keep all the other natives happy, I made these for them...
~ Mabel frosted her first cake on her own. She wanted me to show you what a great job she did! And it tasted quite yummy :)
~ We also had Sally's swim meet this weekend to work around. She did great! It was a "Best Times" meet and out of five events she swam, she beat her best time for each one!
(They misplaced one of her ribbons, but we will get it eventually :)
She swam ::
1. 100 i.m.
2. 50 free
3. 100 free
4. 50 back
5. 50 fly (*this is turning out to be her favorite stroke.)
My friend's son (age 7) swam his first 100 i.m. (for 8 & under). That was really amazing to see!
~ Me. I have been good and keeping to my goal of reading in bed by 9pm for the past week, asleep by 10. Tonight, I think I'll pour a glass of wine to go with it. :)
Have a wonderful week!
