A few bits of August ~

My phlox plant is large & loaded this year with fragrant blooms at the front door.

The sweet corn was large & yummy & with the cooler temps the season lasted a bit longer.

New kitties were born including an unusual brown one! (they only visited in the kitchen for a few minutes as I’m allergic to them)

Showing that the corn is so tall, the ears are up to my shoulders!

My nephew’s wife and children had a long 4-day trip back home this summer and we got to be one night’s stop!  The kids are great little travelers and this was a shorter drive to get to here than their other 8 or 10 hour days of driving.

Supper included fresh corn for those that wanted it and Miss L just melted into her ears of corn as if she was the melted butter!  She was delighted!

After supper, Uncle Farmer farm tour included a combine ride.  Oh the delight!  These children can smile from the inside out!  They made at least 5 loops around the bins and went a bit up the lane and turned around in the yard.  The horn worked ~ much to their giggles!  They got to see pigs and kitties too.

I gave a tour of my studio.  Their momma had never seen such a machine and the littles were thrilled to know that *I* am the one that made their quilts.  When we came back upstairs, it all clicked with Miss L and she wandered the living room noticing all the quilts, understanding a bit more about them and who made them.  🙂  Sweetness!

The next morning came with an early wake-up call as momma quickly packed up the car again.  It was a cool summer morning so I gave snuggles.   🙂     (Two of us don’t do mornings!)

And when the fleece car blanket needed to unwrap and be put in the car, I wrapped one in a quilt.  Golly, all she would have had to do was asked to keep it and I think I would have sent it home with her.  What a lovebug!

I’m pretty sure now they are old enough to not forget visiting with Uncle Farmer and Auntie J~!
