I have been AWOL from my blog for too long. Like everyone else I have been very busy with lots of things. Two of our sons coached their sons Little League teams so Papa and I went to every game that we could. And now our son, my brother and our nephew play on an adult slow pitch soft ball team and we are going to as many games as possible. I guess it doesn't matter how old our kids are we still enjoy getting involved and encouraging them. I have been very busy with work as it is election season here in Michigan with the primary on August 7. I have been mailing out absent voter ballots and trying to keep up on all of the paper work involved. Like so many others we have been hit with the heat wave and it just seems to drain so much of my energy. We don't have a/c in our house but luckily it stays fairly cool. I have been trying to sit in front of a fan in the evenings and work on my hand quilting. I have also been able to do a little sewing during the last few days and am working on some small tote bags for gifts. I finished a block of the month quilt, had it machine quilted and got the binding on it. I will have to get my camera out a take a picture of it. I have been doing as much as I can to help with our 7 grandchildren and totally love that. We celebrated my Dad's 80th birthday a couple of weeks ago and I told him he is a very young 80. He is still driving school bus 5 days a week during the school year and loving every minute of it. On Saturday I helped my sisters cater a wewdding reception for 450 people and am still trying to recuperate from that. It was a lot of fun but also a lot of work. My sister Carol and her family are doing well. Now another sister is facing some medical issues and will see a specialist on Monday. Take care of yourselves and the ones you love.
