Does your life tend to get away from you sometimes? I know ours does. Between parents and grandchildren... Last night Dick and I decided to have a little time for us and we had a great time. We did go pick up some things for the shop and then we went to the new restaurant in Auburn Hills, MI to Toby Keith's I Love This Bar & Grill. There weren't many people in there on a Monday night, but we will definitely go back. It's huge! They even have bull riding - which I won't be doing any time soon! I would love to take daughter Ashley there for her to do kareoke. She has the most amazing voice - and loves country music. The food was great and it was just fun to spend some time together.
Today is sewing day again - these Tuesdays sure come around fast! I want to get a lot done for the shop, orders and now I've decided to do a show with my friend Debbie in Quincy, MI on September 25th at the Old Grainery. They are having a "gathering on the lawn". Should be so much fun - but lots of work too.
The temps here have been terrible for a few days - again. Up into the 90's! Even so, you can still feel a little fall in the air. I will be sad for winter to get here, but I'm sure ready for fall. There is nothing like the colors, the decorating, the swetshirts, carving pumpkins and the list goes on and on. The only thing I'll miss is the sunlight in the evenings. Our time change will come quickly and then it will be dark so darn early. It's already starting to get dark just after 8, but what can we do?
Well girls, hope you have a great day and come back to visit again soon.
Until next time...
