21 Jul

It’s midnight so I am now running into July 21.
Up late trying to finish a project that Mary and I have been working on for 5 weeks. 150 embroidered travel trays for Cruise Holidays in Topeka. Its quite a process and we both now know what it would feel like to truly work in a sweat shop! We are down to our last 37. I’m embroidering the last few and then we still have to sew, turn inside out, topstitch and sew velcro on four corners. The velcro is the most time consuming and we are trying to think of alternative for next time. Actually sewing on snaps might be quicker.

This is Mary’s last week with us so we have kicked it up a notch to finish. It has been great having her here and she will be very missed. With the increase in business I definitely need a 2nd person around a few days a week.
We have a busy week ahead. Wednesday is Potluck/Bingo night. Friday we have a little flea market/craft show/bake sale, that evening Mary and I are taking the “Pathway to the VA Veteran’s Gardens” quilt to sell raffle tickets. We have over $300 so far!! Photos of quilt and veteran.

On Saturday we are having a giant pinata party. Remember the giant pinata we brought back from Mexico this winter??? We are going to bust it open.
We are hosting an art class today and tomorrow. I’m not able to work on my painting this time but hopefully next month. It is so cool to see our classes so far full this season. Now in process of getting the Quilt Retreat in October organized.
Our garden continues to flourish although nothing to really harvest yet. Have picked some herbs and some cabbage leaves but apparently things won’t truly be ready to harvest for a couple more weeks.
Billie and kids are getting settled into their new place. I so love their new home, especially all the space.
Joining a Weigh and Win fitness program put on at our local hospital. Back to my usual goal of losing $15. Since I am not exercising at all due to my back issues, I am getting fluffy and I’m still unable to fight the drumstick addiction although I have gone all day with no ice cream.. but, I am still awake so who knows.
Not much else to rattle on about.
We are getting ready to install a new interenet system in the park next week. Hopefully this will stop all of our internet issues and keep Denny from climbing the pole to reboot the router. (The campers do enjoy watching him do this several times a day)
Our weather has been wonderful and our Texans don’t want to leave. We keep moving people around in the park so they can stay longer. It gets quite complicated at times.
I keep wondering why I’m not writing about anything else but I guess my life is 100% the rv park right now
That’s it for now.
