Hello July!

Patriotic Pinwheels
(Quilt I made a few years ago from a Silver Thimble pattern.)

Is anyone else out there shocked that it's JULY already???

I'm not going to complain about the 100+ temps, and I'm not going to complain about how fast this summer is flying by, and I'm not going to complain about how sweltering it is cleaning a 14stall horse barn in this heat, and I'm not going to complain about how much I've needed to water the garden lately.

I could, but I'm not.

Instead I'm going to be grateful for the beautiful kids that fill my home and eat all the food in the pantry on a daily basis. I'm grateful for the warm sunshine because I have air conditioning and lots of ice. I'm grateful that I have the ability to clean a horse barn so that my girl can ride to her heart's content. I'm grateful that my garden is producing amazing veggies in spite of the heat. I'm grateful that we will be making salsa today from our very own garden. In spite of the current heat wave, summer is still my favorite season!

So happy JULY friends! 

Stay cool.


  1. I CANNOT believe it is July already! Too crazy! You forgot to add the 'not complaining' about picking up after the kids all day long as they snack to their hearts content and then forget where the dishwasher is! Or maybe that's just at my house?

    1. I think you've been spying on us!!! hahaha Sounds like we have lots in common other than just quilting. It's nice to know someone understands. :)
