Driving Miss Bailey!

I Just couldn't resist that title. Picked up our furry grand dog Bailey Baxter, and here she is riding in my back seat just looking out the window. She is a very good passenger and loves to observe life along the way! Baby Polka Dot was also here for a sleepover, so lots and lots of fun was happening. Bad grandma though....no new pictures!

The mail has been very, very good here. My signature blocks arrive from Connie. They are so much fun to look at. So many familiar names and lots of new blogs I need to explore. Great job coordinating the whole thing Connie. Then yesterday this is what arrived
WHOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO, YIPPPPPPEEEEEE. I am a little bit, no change that, a whole lot excited. Today Mr. Polka Dot will spend the day getting it going and I am hoping tomorrow I will be emailing, blogging and hanging out on the new computer. This computer has just had it. I have not been able to get to my blog for days, and email is on and off, not to mention emails sent don't seem to get to where they are suppose to go! Ms. Geranium and I have been texting like crazy just so I can keep up with what she and hunka are up to.

My Designer Block Of The Month just needs the outer border, so I am hoping to have a picture for my next post. Not much quilting going on otherwise. My Stars and Rails quilt came back from my quilting friends---WOW, that quilting is amazing so I have that binding to do along with my Dutch Treat. Spring cleaning a bit here and there, and honestly goofing off AGAIN!!! But what else do I have to do!!! This is a quilt my friend Carol did. She is all set for Fall with that wonderful collection of apples! Last Friday was a fun day with my girl. We met for breakfast and did a bit of shopping...of course....lots of talking, catching up. How is it the daughter is now smarter than the mom...just sayin'!! She is very wise and always gives me the best advice.

The garden is looking wonderful. Mr. Polka Dot is out there every day and enjoying the leisure time he has to devote to it. This is a picture of our jasmine bush that when in full bloom covers the gate to the front yard....it's our secret entry! It smells so wonderful right now. Today is an interesting weather day for us......thunder and lightning, with some micro bursts here and there. Quite the nice change, but that heat is just looming out there waiting to pounce!

Here's a shout out to my friend Josie for the wonderful and kind email. You made my day :-)!!!! Wishing you all a very happy mid week and now I really have some blog catching up to do!
