Hi everyone,  I returned last evening from my second stint of the  
summer on Cape Cod. I was there for 3 weeks in July,  home for 1 week  
and then stayed for 5 weeks.
I loved every minute of my time there. I did all kinds of relaxing,  
vacationy stuff. I have to stay stuff, because it's hard to put a name  
on reading books (8), seeing friends and family. All 4 of my children  
plus spouses, my 9 grandchildren and 2 boyfriends. Many meals with  
family and friends. Of course the beach and just hanging out in the back  
yard, watching clouds go by.
I also went to two beach concerts to watch my 14 y.o. grandson play with  
a teenage rock band. He is a born performer. The band was in conjunction  
with guitar lessons.
The one thing I didn't do much of, even though it was in the back of my  
mind, was sew. I brought out my machine and used it a total of about 3  
times. Just some little mending jobs. I did get a friend to help me fit  
the top I had   planned on finishing. I never conquered the insert with  
the  square corners but did find a suitable way to get a nice smooth  
look. I combined the pieces to make a yoke with an snap opening.  
Pictures someday. when I finish the top.
  I came home with more projects then I went with. As soon as I get my  
laundry and house caught up I'll start sewing.
I loved being away.I'm glad to be back home.

I don't want you to feel bad Beverly but we plan on going back for the  
month of October. How long we actually stay depends on how cold it gets.  
It's a three season house technically. Sometimes the spring and fall are  
cut short because it gets to cold and damp.

I would so welcome cold and damp right now!  It's 95 degrees and  
still going up.  I lost power for 45 minutes a while ago.  Back now,  
but fingers crossed, the AC is the only thing keeping me sane ATM.
