Oh, Audania1, that truly sucks.  I'm sorry about your phone!

I had such a fun time meeting up with Smeddley and Lola!  We could totally be friends IRL!  My picture looks pretty much exactly like hers, so I won't post it again.

We were in the path of totality for the eclipse.  I don't think I've ever experienced something so awesome.  I can understand now why people chase these all over the world.  My little point & shoot didn't take the best picture, but here's Clara at totality.


We paid off our mortgage on Monday, and our neighbors left this on the porch for us.


We went to see The Dark Tower, and both DH and I enjoyed it.  The books were fabulous, but I really don't think you need to have read them to follow the movie.


Lastly, we had to have a tree removed on Friday.  We had a severe drought five years ago, and this poor evergreen never really recovered.  These guys were so quick that they had a bunch of lower branches off before I could get a picture.  I'll miss this tree!

I was happy to receive from craftADDchick, but I'm also sad because now I know there's no more squishy fun mail coming my way.  I like how she included regional fabrics; that's something I never even thought of since I was just shopping the stash.  Next time there might have to be some fabric acquisition.  Wink

The package from AIMR arrived, and I was bowled over by what she sent.  Not only were there squares, but some fabric made it in the package, too.  Thank you!

I was in Sedalia, MO for a quick weekend.  I'm lucky to have gotten this picture of the state fairgrounds on Friday evening, because it rained buckets the rest of the weekend.


Some friends introduced me to a new discount fabric shop about 45 minutes to an hour away.  I was so good there, but at $2.49/yard it was difficult (for those of you who don't sew fabric is routinely $8-$15/yard).  I've been wanting to try a stack & whack quilt, and at those prices I decided now was the time.  I picked up the Christmas fabric to give it a go.  Here's Clara with my fresh kill from the hunt.  Wink


My cousin and his family live in upstate Illinois, but they were recently in town.  Here they are making a centipede raft in the pool.  Turns out ducks like to swim - who knew?  Cheesy


I got to visit with a friend who moved to New Mexico several years ago, and she had her new-to-me triplets with her.  Man, are they busy little individuals!


Lastly, we went to a Gateway Grizzlies (Frontier League) baseball game.  We were all excited to see the Weinermobile there. Clara might be hard to spot, but she's perched in the cutout on the right.

Apparently last week was all about questionable food choices.  Roll Eyes  On the way to dinner a friend and I stopped in to see another friend in his shop.  I had Clara all set up on the tire, but he wanted to be in the picture.  Not a problem, but after the Roto Rooter guy I was a little gun shy about asking men to be in the picture.


After we left there we went to Crown Candy for dinner.  It's a candy shop and soda fountain that has been in business since 1913.  I had the heart-stopping BLT with cheese and a chocolate marshmallow shake.  They use homemade ice cream - so good!


DH and I were out at estate sales, and we stopped in at Lubeley's Bakery for some breakfast.  It was founded in 1937 and has moved a couple of times, and they're now located on Route 66 (called Watson Rd. for that stretch).  I've passed this place often, but it's the first time I've actually stopped in.  I would definitely like to try some of their other desserts.


And just to prove that sometimes I go to places that aren't food related, here's a picture of a fire break in rural Missouri.  Sorry for getting part of the car in the shot, but I was on a curve without a shoulder and had to stop as briefly as possible.

This past weekend we were in Clarksville, TN.  We passed through Cairo, IL.  Same name but not quite the same trip Anana got, though.  Wink


It rained part of the time, but it was still a nice view from the hotel.


On the more mundane side of life we spent a half day at the mechanic's.  New brakes and rotors - how's that for excitement?
