Date Night - 45 years

My DH & I were in Texas (hot hot hot) babysitting and we had a grand time.  Love playing games, Life, Monopoly (2 days) my grand daughter brought a hotel.  Memory card games had a 1000 piece puzzle & I was not able to put pieces together after the border.

 We have been married 45 years and it was a little celebration.  My husband has not asked me out for awhile so it was time.  The place has brick walls with barrels of wine surrounding you.  The music was perfect - Nick was his name and he came over & we had a wonderful conversation.  My brother in law is an entertainer, he was in the "New Christy Minstral" way back when.  "Everybody loves Saturday Night" - Kenny Rogers, John Denver, Linda Ronstad were originals in this group.

We are home in Nebraska and it is still hot, I am not a hot weather person.  Keep cool - sew.

Corn Palace

I have never been to the "Corn Palace" but my grandchildren enjoyed it.

The palace is located in Mitchell, South Dakota, same state where Mt. Rushmore is.
I still remember my family trips as a child - driving across the country is  a great gift.

I love my coffee and my husband makes a pot in the morning but by the time I get up it is practically gone.  So I have this great filter from World's Market.
Millita Coffee funnels have been around for a long long time.  When I was a little girl and went to Germany that is how they made their coffee and probably still do.  I love my electric boil kettle, put
a Millita filter in your funnel, measure your coffee (weak, strong) and pour the boiling water and in
a few minutes you have a great cup of coffee - and it is nice and hot.  My other machine is "Mr. Coffee" - I never did care for the Keurig brand machine.  My way is very inexpensive the funnel cost me maybe $4.00.

I just make a cup at a time but you can make a whole pot of coffee.  I still have to admit the peculator coffee was also wonderful Faber ware.

This is my own recommendation I have not been paid by any company.

Keep Cool.... I am back to knitting

I am making a pumkin scarf that I started last year and hope to finish it by the fall.

Front Door Decoration

 Thanks for an idea from "Samplers & Santa" (she had a blue bag).  I got an idea for my front door.  I am going to keep it up until after July.

My tablecloth from Germany at "Woolworth"
