Modern Sunbonnet Sue's Musings

Musings from the mind of a modern day Sue:
Sue's Monday Musings 2

Four days in a camper is enough for me. We're home; I've unpacked; the laundry is nearly done; and I'm ready to sleep in my own bed tonight. I guess I'm not much for outdoor camping. The confined spaces, the shared bathrooms & showers, and the dampness in the morning, are just a few of the things I can only take for a few days.

But, we did enjoy being away from home in the Michigan outdoors. We spent time with two of my husband's brothers and their families, that were also camping, The weather was beautiful, although hot & humid. My DH and I went on a bicycle ride every morning. I cooked several meals, which I usually do not get to do. I do enjoy cooking. And, I was able to do some hand sewing. As any die-hard quilter will do, I packed several projects to keep me busy. I mostly did hand applique on my Hungry Catepillar blocks. But, I also stitched a hanging sleeve on a quilt I recently finished. And, I cut out the squares for the last Mystery quilt. I had more things along to do, and didn't even pull out my Featherweight. But, I had it just in case.

We visited my youngest daughter tonight. She finally got pictures taken of the newest granddaughter and gave us copies. They make such adorable children. Of course, Grandma is a bit partial. Tomorrow, I have to head back to work. As you all know, that is always difficult after a vacation. And, I have to leave earlier than usual, so that I can go to a training in another town. Four hours in a training the first day back after a vacation; hopefully I don't nod off.

My brother called from California, and left a message while we were away. He just wanted to know what was up with the heat wave we were experiencing in Michigan. He said that he's still got us beat out in L.A. We remember, as children, a couple of hot summers, but nothing that seemed to last like this one has.

Stay Cool and Happy Stitching!

We are having such high temps here, 106 today, that we were thinking about going north,to Michigan or Wisconsin in our RV. But your blog indicates hot and humid up there, too. I guess this summer you can't beat the heat anywhere, so I think I will stay in my air conditioned home and quilt to my heart's content. What do people do, that don't quilt or sew in bad weather ? We quilters have it made, don't we!
