Random Week Catch Up

Well it's funny to say but I'm relieved that the weather is only supposed to be in the high 90's this week. We had triple digit weather for over a week straight. Talk about miserable.

I did have one pool day at my friends house though (and took no pictures!)

I finished up the last of the little bags I was making ( I don't know why it rotates my pictures they are the right direction before I upload..)

and made some potholders out of scraps. I have a few potholders like this that someone gave me but mine turned out like crap. Not a perfect circle and bias tape, yuck.  I tried a couple different ways of making them for the binding but they just look crappy. Might have to find an actually tutorial that shows how to do them better for next time. At least I used up a bunch of scraps and I won't care if they get dirty in the kitchen lol.

After I finished those I started making some more teacher's presents for my friend. I have all but one of those things finished but haven't taken any pictures yet. I have Bunco tonight so not sure if I'll get to it or not but I would like to get it done tonight.

When I wasn't sewing this weekend we went to my brother Joe's house for a belated birthday party and father's day BBQ.  The kids swam and I sat around drinking Smirnoff Ice and put my feet in the pool.  My sister in law got 2 little bunnies. They put them out on the lawn for a bit and the dog on the outside of the little pen lol. She SOOO wanted to "just chew on their neck a bit" (name that movie).

Sunday I had book club. We haven't met in months since Tom passed away the day before the last one. It was nice to finally get together again. This month's book to read is called "A Thousand Days In Venice: An Unexpected Romance". I think I'll actually try to read this one, I haven't been reading much lately.

Probably because I'm addicted to Netflix series. I just finished watching Bloodline, which was sooo good until the last few episodes. I read somewhere that it was originally supposed to be 5 years and it got shortened to 3 so that is why they wrapped it up so quick. I finished that one and then started watching American Crime. The first series is set in Modesto, which is where I work so that is interesting. Now I'm onto the 2nd season which has the same actors with totally different parts and story line. So weird! 

Here's my plans for the week so far:

Thursday-Girls night out
Saturday-4th of July Party

Sometimes it feels like I'm never home..

Anyhow, that's what I've been up to, how about you? Watch any good shows lately? Read any good books? What projects are you working on?

Julie let me know what you think of that book. Looking for a good book. Don't know when I'll have time, but looking. Looked through books at Costco the other day but nothing looked good.
As for Bloodline. Yep, I read that too and that it didn't have good ratings and they were canceling it. I didn't like the ending at all. I too liked that show. Sometimes it was really dark. Man, that family makes mine look like Leave it to Beaver. At first, I thought the mom was just clueless but I feel she knew more that was going on than she let on and used and manipulated her kids.

I too have that issues with pictures turning sometimes. If you find out why let us know. Drives me crazy. We have had a rainier than normal summer and my tomato plants and pepper plants don't like it nor do my petunias. Hopefully it will get back to normal soon.
