I know Summer began last week officially but to me it starts today. July 1st. 1/2 of the year gone already and this is the start on my countdown for the rest of the year which happens to be my favorite part, loads of birthdays, lots of summer fun, the start of a new school year, Autumn, Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas of course. Isn't it great thinking of all that fun stuff yet to come.
I haven't had much time to blog or do much of anything in the way of fun. Life has been very busy and trying. This will be the first summer that I am not working and I am taking a much needed summer off. My vacation started off with a bang, a very big bang. Our much loved pool is no more. The other day while 2 of my grandchildren and my sil Donnie were in the pool, one side of the pool collapsed. 15,000 gallons of water all over the yard. It even destroyed a little playhouse of my granddaughters. Wow that water was strong, it moved our lower level deck stairs. Thank God no one was hurt. My sil got my grandchildren out of the pool so fast, thank God.
This is Tyler right before it broke:
I contacted our insurance company and an adjuster has been to see the wreckage but we still have no idea what will be the outcome, we are waiting to hear from them and I do hope it's with some good news. We have been pricing new ones and they are outrageously expensive.
My newest addiction is crocheting, I can't seem to put that hook down. I am working on a few different projects. It is so easy and almost mindless to just sit and do some crocheting. So much fun.
I have made a promise to myself to put a few strands of floss on my CHS Village every night of this summer. I am having a SAL with my friend Pat who is also working on the same piece. We have to check in on Sundays to see how far we got. So this Sunday I will be posting a picture of what I have done so far and hopefully some stitchy crocheting too.
I will close this post with something very sweet. Something that reminds me of summer also, hope you like it too.
Till next time,
