R.K. Learns to Sew

We went to Maryland this week and picked up my grandson, R.K. , to spend the week. He is ten years old. He was so good in the car for the long trip even though he didn't have anything along to do. Today, after church and breakfast, (He was good in church too) we made a sweatsuit for Kameren's doll. He was very able with the sewing machine and here is our finished project. Grandpa is also making a blog lately called Its My Story and I'm Stuck With it. We don't agree on the spelling of "it's".

A Computer Kind of Guy

Tonight Martha came home from school and said, " It's raining hard and there is a rainbow." Hubby said, "It 's not supposed to rain I had better look at the computer." Then he noticed a pop-up shower on the radar. I questioned whether, if there hadn't been a pop-up shower on the computer screen , would he not believe his eyes that it was raining? When I asked him that he said, "Well, I'm a computer kind of guy."

Kameren Came to Visit

Hubby's daughter and her two children have come to spend a few days with us. I love having a granddaughter to sew for. I made her several outfits for both her and her doll. Hubby loves explaining science to Keegan. Yesterday he had to run out to the market to buy lemons so they could make batteries.

My Mom is an avid baseball fan. She seldom misses a Tiger game. I made her a counted cross stitch "Baseball Nostalgia" picture and gave it to her Sunday. Then we took her to an historic baseball game at Greenfield Village. I gave her the rules ahead of time and she studied them carefully. She was most impressed that the outfielders didn't wear gloves. At that time period, some players wore fingerless leather gloves but it wasn't really considered manly to wear them. Greenfield Village has two teams staffed by 46 volunteers. Their name is the "La-di-dahs". Yesterday they played a team from Wyandotte. Their uniforms said "Y & ." The temperature was 94 degrees so we were armed with many bottles of water and big hats. We used a wheelchair for Mom because the grove is quite a distance from the museum entrance. A good time was had by all.

Busy July

The first of July we babysat for my great niece and 2 great nephews. They were 3,2, and 5 months. We set the day aside to just play with them and we had so much fun. Arnold, our cat, responded to "Kitty Cat" and let them pet him as much as they wanted. He even let them walk with him on the leash. For being such a high maintenance cat he sure comes through when he is needed. At nap time I held each, one at a time until they fell asleep.(not long) Then Hubby and I sat in the recliners in the same room and napped too. Even Arnold crawled up in his perch and napped as well.
