1. sew some curtains and shams for my mom's guest house
2. eat soft icecream 2x a day
3. fish
4. scrapbook with my grandmother, aunt, and mom
5. paint some furniture and some walls in the guest house
6. front porch sit with my grandfather
7. hang out with my brother
8. poke around in some antique shops
9. visit the cemetery
10. go paddle boating with my kids

summer is going by so fast! i hope you are enjoying it.

I forgot you are officially a "seamstress" now! I just returned home after 9 glorious days visiting with my Grandmother and Aunts and Uncles north of Pittsburgh. Lots of front porch sittin, eating custard(soft serve ice cream of sorts),visiting my mom's and grandfather's graves. didn't get to fish but I did help my cousin set off lots of illegal fireworks he crossed the border into Ohio to buy. Of course I had no idea until the cop told me. does your news involve retail space?

Soft ice cream twice a day sounds luxurious! "Luxury in Simplicity" sounds like a good motto, doesn't it?
