I borrowed this photo from someone on line. It is in Virginia Beach, where I live. The birds are pelicans, if you didn't know. We see them often around here. One day my husband and I watched as they flew into the water and swooped up fish. So fun to watch nature being natural. Unless, like my friend Pat, you have elk in your garden! She lives in Washington State though, not here. If you want to see a picture of an elk laughing at her, go to her blog. She is doing some wonderful photography now, but she is the one who got me quilting and taught me everything I know. Or tried to! She is an amazing quilter and has been asked to speak and teach at the quilt guild in Bremerton next June. If you live around there you should go! Tell her I sent you.
Tomorrow, Sept. 11, I am going to Arizona for two weeks. I stop in Atlanta and have a three hour layover, so I am hoping to spend a little time with my daughter who lives there. Then on to Mesa, AZ to see my Dad and other family. My son lives there also. I know I will have stories to tell about my grandchildren there. My 11 year old granddaughter called me yesterday to ask a question. She said, "I got out your sewing machine to work on a few things." I can hear the machine going in the background, and asked if she had on headphones. "No, the phone is tucked under my chin" she says! I asked what she was working on and she said she was sewing all her dad's boxer shorts closed in the front. OK.
Aside from visiting my loved ones, I will be feasting on Mexican food every chance I get! Tia Rosa, I am coming!
