I have a few more finishes, but I'll save them for next month as my Brother just arrived from Florida for a few days. It will be a nice visit since I rarely see him and he is moving to the Southwestern US when he leaves.

My Dad had his ear cleaning appointment - will return in 6 months. Dad also had his hearing aids checked - next adjustment and check in 6 months. July has been hot & very dry. The heat this past month has been brutal - Dad had a slight episode the day after his appointment - we think heat exhaustion - so had his rest for a few days in his AC living room.He also saw his endocrinologist a few days ago... numbers are improving - next visit in December.

The heat also affected Bucky & Samantha... thankfully their appetites have started to return and their strength improved after the heat broke. Although a few days ago Bucky slipped while going up the stairs  (and slid down 4 steps to the landing).  Luckily nothing was broken although he seemed to be a bit sore the next few days. Lots of rest and TLC for him.

No new stash this month.

I'm looking forward to the cooler weather and more time stitching my Heavenly (HAED) projects.

Until Next time- I'll leave you with a glorious sunset (do you see the rainbow?)


... and a beautiful sunrise.

Have a wonderful day!
