Busy Days and Quiet Evenings

I haven't had very many chances to record my daily activities lately...but I am going to make an attempt to catch up.  Let's see...several days a week I spend with my grand daughters and in the evenings I shower and knit or read... to relax.  On the days I am not with them I mow the lawn and take care of the pool and pull weeds and do the wash and iron and clean......etc..etc.  I did get to attend the Little Hills festival in August but I didn't take any photos and did not get to see any entertainers.  It seemed very different this year.   Not as many interesting things going on while I was there, and I didn't see any on the schedule.  We usually have Irish singers and dancers and live flute music similar to Nakai.  It was also very HOT that day.  Bob and I attended a 3 pin bowl party that we bid on at an auction a few months ago.  I wasn't sure what to expect, but it turned out to be a lot of fun.  My team did Crazy Bowl that we each made up our own crazy thing to do.  One time we had them turn the lights out, one time we sat down and rolled it down the lane.  Another time we spun ourselves around three times and then attempted to  throw the ball.  For the ones drinking alcohol this was a hoot!  We turned around and threw the ball between our legs.  The young man that was down picking up the pins and setting them back up, just kept shaking his head.  I guess we showed him you don't have to be young to act goofy sometimes.
I am getting excited for October 6th because I get to go to a Quilt Show with Katy and the kids in Des Moines.  It is an AQS show similar to the one that I go to in Paducah, Kentucky.  I have never visited Iowa before.  Also Bob and I are going to take a bus tour of the East Coast the later part of October.  Some exciting things for me to look forward to!

I think there should have video of that bowling - sounds like a hoot!

I agree with The Bug, you should have had video of your bowling escapades! Sounds like it was fun.

You're taking a color tour? How awesome is that? I bet the quilt show will be amazing, too.

Your pool looks so good, Brenda! You keep it very clean. Bet you used it a lot with the hot weather we had this summer. I spent a lot off time at the cabin and in the river!

Crazy Bowl sounds like a hoot!

Quilt Show will be nice, I'm sure as will the color tour. As dry as it's been this summer around here, I don't know what the colors will be like this Fall. We are getting a nice all day rain today.

Have a great day!

I enjoyed reading the catch up of what you've been up to. So, I'm thinking you must babysit the kids and that is why you see them every week.

Hope we get to see photos soon of them.

Hi Brenda, Thanks for visiting My Reading Corner today. I guess you haven't read Jane Austen's book Pride and Prejudice, one of her books,that was made into a movie starring Colin Firth. That is how I know him.

I'm becoming a bit lazy when it comes to visiting blogs lately. I have a few reading blogs I visit. And then there is ABC Wednesday meme and SkyWatch Friday meme that I participate in each week. And visit a lot of blogs from all over the world. Internet amazes me, in how fast we can communicate to anyone almost anywhere any day of the week.

I live about 90 miles east of Des Moines, Iowa. We visit it about 2 or 3 times a year. I hope you have a great visit and the quilt show is to your liking. I will look forward to some photos of some of the quilts.

Have a great week, Brenda.
