Lots of moisture in the air

The sky is getting darker


Zooming in

Later it was more sheet lightning

Case / JD

At the quilt show there was a Case Tractor Quilt

It's very easy to find John Deere material

But Case is much harder to find
It would be nice for Marc's room

Quilt show

I went to Rosemary's show

There were lots of people
even a bus from Montreal

This quilt has about 9 colour families in it
a family is: a leaf, a plaid, a light a middle and a dark

This is made from upholstery and light curtain material
The black was a white / black curtain
She cut away the white

Waiting for the Sun

The first cut needs some sunshine
I was reading in Job this morning:

He speaks to the sun and it does not shine;
He seals of the light of the stars

Still Damp

The Bees are flying

Hopefully we'll get some strawberries

Between the showers

Quickly mow the lawn

Fill up the spreader with liquid fertilizer & spray

No use to wait for the garden to dry

Then we wouldn't plant at all

The lawn is cut

and the field is sprayed just before it starts to rain seriously
we are blessed

He will cover you with his feathers
and under his wings you will find refuge

There are 2 teams for Marc's age this year

That's fun for the kids
they play more
but we miss the other parents

This Ref was good
He explained a lot and everyone appreciated that
