September already???

Gee I don't know where the time goes any more. My daughter informed me that I haden't made any entries lately so will try and correct that now.
Tomorrow we are taking my hubby in for a knee surjury so that he can hopefully stop going through a lot of pain. He tore a ligiment this summer just walking the dog. Getting old is for the birds. Anyway we have been put on hold for a lot of things waiting to get this done. If this works they are going to look into his other knee next.

I am back to work for the school district and that has been keeping me busy. They have something they do every year called a secret pal program. You sign up and fill out a paper letting them know what your favorite color is, your hobbies , likes and dislikes. Then they will have a drawing and pair you up with someone else as a secret pal. you know who your pal is but they do not know who you are. Each month you leave some little surprise in their school mail box and at the end of the year you get to meet them. One of the girls in the kitchen that I work with has done this several times and was complaining that no one else from the kitchen participated soooooooo I said I would. It should be interesting. I have already started. we were at wallmart today and they had already put out the halloween things. I found two adorable halloween candle holders so that will be my october gift.

We are also waiting to see what hurricane Hanna is going to do. If she decided to hit North carolina we could get wet! Hopefully she will skirt right on past us. This is the worst part of the season for the hurricanes. After this month it should start calming down as the ocean waters cool off.

I have been working on the infimas grandmothers flower garden quilt so it is growing , and along with that I have started an applique square of four hearts and some smaller hearts joined with vines. If it turns out I will post a picture later.

Have also been working on suduko puzzles. Do any of you do these? I swear when I was in Spokane this summer my daughter mentioned it and I told her that I had tried one earlier and just could not figure the darn things out. Wellllllll my little eight year old granddaughter happened to be sitting at the table and said Grandma Linda I can teach you how to do them". Wellllllllllllll I thought" IF she can do these then by gosh I can! so she proceeded to teach me how. I have been hooked ever since! These really are quite fun too do! I have them all over the place including in my bag. They come in very handy at the doctors office and anywhere else you are caught waiting.
Take care untill next time. Linda
