Lots to Post!

Well, September is coming to a close and what a month it's been.  The start of school (work for me), the start of hockey, a few birthdays, hot air balloon races, the official start of autumn just to name a few of the activities.

School has been going well, but man oh man, I've been hit hard with a cold/flu bug.  I haven't missed a day but sure wish I could get feeling 100% and get my energy back.  If my sinuses aren't killing me, I'm achy head to toe.  I know it has to pass but sooner rather than later would be very much appreciated!

Daughter2's hockey has started.  We went to a couple of games out of town during a tournament in Brooks last weekend.....her (new) team lost in the gold medal match.  That morning they beat Edmonton who had been stomping every team they had played.  Wish the game wasn't so would have been a good one to watch!  While we were driving there we came upon this truck.......quilt block!!!!

That same weekend was my birthday and this weekend all my kids came down!  Daughter2 stayed overnight (and slept on a big bed as opposed to her tiny dorm room bed!), Son1 and his girlfriend and Son2 came from St Albert.  Daughter1 came on Sunday for the day.  It was wonderful having everyone together!!!!!!!!  Daughter2 brought me this yummy fruit bouquet for my birthday...of course everyone helped me eat it!

The weekend was busy as there were the hot air balloon races and the car show.  They said there were 1090 registered cars and more unregistered cars there!  I believe it!  It spread out all through the downtown as well as all through George Lane Park which is a large area itself.  My hips are still killing me from all the walking we did!!!!  I didn't take pictures at the car show but here are two of my favorite balloons......they were so cute!
Hope you can see them....the picture quality is not the greatest.

There was a sale at an antique/giftware place in Okotoks that Jenna and I went to on Saturday.  Picked up a few small things.  I didn't spend much because my big purchase last week was my new toy.  It's an older Juki sewing machine and a HQ frame.....not sure what to call it as it sure isn't a 
long-arm machine!  A short arm?  LOL. I've set it up but haven't used it yet.....I spent the day cleaning and washing bedding after work.  I'll use it for smaller projects (I have a pile!) after I get the hang of it!!!

Last week was our stitching get together at Sues and her cutie dog Daisy loved the quilt I was stitching the binding onto......she made herself very comfortable!

Yesterday while we were all relaxing I was mentioning to Jenna about how dirty my windows were and I was going to get Hubby to help as I don't like walking along the roof to clean the outsides and my arms are too short to clean them all from inside.  Next thing I know she is wanting to wash my windows!  How could I say no??????  I've been admiring them ever since!!!!! 

They are coming down again for Thanksgiving and I can't wait!!!  Loved playing cards and having some laughs with my kiddos!!!!!!
