Have you heard the Tony Winner Musical "Hamilton"?

 This musical has won many awards and what is great about it tells a story about American history -
Alexander Hamilton.  The cast is superb great interview on the Charlie Rose Show on PBS.

Lin-Manuel the composer lives in Washington Heights in Manhattan near the George Washington Bridge which I have been on so many times not realizing all who lived in the famous part of NY.
Too name a few Lou Gehrig, Henry Kissinger, Stan Lee, Freddie Prinez, Jacob J. Javits. Leo Grocey and many others. 

I am almost 65 years old and I am listening to Hip Hop, but it is the story it tells.  Check it out on
"I Tunes" or "You Tube" also  car karaoke  with James Corden.

What view do you have from your window?

I see this view from my living room each day.  This has become our vocal point from the living room.

 My garden is so so this year, I have these moths/flies that have been eating lots of green leaves.
I understand some of the insect are good ones.

Be careful out there and stay safe- The world needs prayers.

I am old fashioned - clocks

I still love my clocks in the house.  This clock has a CD player.

You can't use your smart phone all the time.  I don't have the phone on me every minute.

This clock is in the living room - it is nice and large. I always have my clocks 5 minutes ahead.

This is in my kitchen - my favorite great times in the UK

I do wear a watch when I go to church.  I did have a fit bit but it didn't have a watch feature.  My DH
loves his fit bit because it has watch feature.

Tomorrow is Saturday and us quilters will meet to work on our charity quilts.  Have a great weekend.

What I did on Wednesday

I went for a walk in the mall with my DH.  I got in 10,000 steps because I also went swimming. Worked on some quilting projects but below are some items I have made in the past.

Hope you are having a great day.  The sun is shining but it is humid.  We have had lots of rain, it is
difficult for the farmers to work on their crops because we have had too much moisture.

My Day

I have decided to show you what my day is like.  I follow lots of bloggers and I wish I had their energy - would love to spend a day with some of them and perhaps learn something.  My day are usually uneventful but it will be interesting to me.

I went for a lovely walk this morning - I need to do this more often.

My impatience are doing great this fall - we have lots of sun here in Midwest so I had to put them in the shade as much as possible.  I know on the east coast the stores wouldn't sell them because of a disease.     

I am reading "Twain's End" it is very entertaining for my book club.  It was a surprising subject.  
Yesterday I worked in my sewing room completed a quilt for church, went swimming, made meatloaf
and did a little house cleaning.  I was under the weather yesterday, I woke up very very cranky.

Hope you had a good day.

Shopping - I am not a fan

I was in Colorado last week so I had to get some new clothes for the trip, I keep wearing the same thing at home.  I went to Kohl's and brought 2 tops,  and new PJ's.  I hate to buy clothes I should lose weight but I did OK.

Canning tomatoes.  I met some young farmers who have turned their garden into organic garden and these are new tomatoes.

 I prefer roma tomates because they make a thicker sauce.
My garden.  Today is Labor day & I have not done a thing - tomorrow I have a class with seniors and then I will be in full force - swimming, packages to mail out, canning and weeding next week.

Do you get those kind of days?
