Ah...Autumn. It's my favorite time of year. It's my birthday month and (Here's my big News) it's the month my husband Terry retired. Yep, as of October 1st he is retired. It's early but we've hoped for this day for sooooo long. He worked at the same company for 44 1/2 years. We are so looking forward to spending time together.
Yesterday we went to Hudson Mills Metro Park. It is over by Ann Arbor. The weather couldn't have been better. Sun shining, slight breeze and good company. The park is along side of the Huron River. Not a lot of color change yet but we still enjoyed ourselves. We saw 3 deer but none of them were very friendly. Every time I got my camera ready they would run off.
We just got back from Metro Beach Metro Park after taking our morning walk. We are planning on doing this at least 4 times a week. It was a rather chilly 59 degrees and over cast. We even felt a few rain drops, but we enjoyed our walk. We like walking along the boat docks. I had to laugh at all the seagulls lined up on one boat well.
I have gotten a little sewing done.
Here are 2 of the Barbara Brackman blocks I finished. Now I hope I have the time to do the latest before a new one is posted on Saturday.
I joined my good friend Freda at The Adventures of the Empress of the Universe for her Jacobs Ladder Quilt Along. I'm doing mine in homespuns and neutrals. It looks like it is going to be fun.
