Summertime kids!

Well the heat of summer is officially here and the kids are out of school, at least Jake is. Savannah has to take 6 wks of summer school in order to pass the 1st grade. I got a good picture of them on Jakes bike the other day.

They left last friday to head to California with their dad. They called the other night and were all excited about seeing Knotts Berry Farm and wednsday they went to Disneyland. When we called last nite they were headed to Las Vegas and taking a slow trip home. I take care of them pretty much every day so when they are gone they are sure missed.

I am also including a picture of what the place I work at sits next to. We can walk down the end of the halls and look out the windows and the lake is what we see. If I haven't had to bad a day I will stop and walk around it. I think it is my favorite place in Amarillo. It has been so windy here, yesterday it was up to 60 mi an hr. My husband was the pallberer at a funeral yesterday. When we went to the gravesite after the service, there was one man on each of the poles holding up the tent covering the site. Hubby said that Morris was getting a good panhandle send off. After the funeral we went and saw Raiders of the Lost Ark. It was a very good movie.

I am busy cleaning my sewing corner this afternoon and trying to pull out some fabric for a couple of dresses.

I am so disgusted with my weight and the fact that most of my clothes are to small. Well I took the big leap and joined weight watchers today. My goal for this next week is to lose at least 3 lbs. Lets see how good I do.

Amarillo Breaks Old Record!

Well yesterday Amarillo borke a record with a new temperature of 106 degrees. I was inside all day working but I did notice how hot it was in the building. I was completely shocked when I came out at 7pm and heard at that time it was 97 degrees. I am really worried about the type of summer we are going to have when already temps are getting up that high. We use a water cooler and it doesnt cool well if the humidity is high, thankfully yesterday there was no humidity.

Good news on our premie. She still has the central line but no longer being fed thru it. They allow her mom to hold her once a day and feed her. She is now up to 4 lbs and things are looking good. She will probablly be in the NICU at least 3 - 4 more weeks but I am glad that she has made a turn on her progress. I have been buying up premie clothes but she may be too big for them when she comes out.

I have been busy sewing and finished another baby quilt for a co-worker. This one is the split 9-patch and I am really liking how these turn out. I used my favorite material which are the reproduction fabrics. The lady holding the quilt is the new grandma. I am now using all my scraps to make a chinese coin for my bed so it will be colorful this weekend.
Take care to everyone and hope I post again sooner.
