Happy, happy Thursday from sunny, hot and beautiful Monticello, Indiana, USA. We've been busy watching our grandchildren Audrey Kate and Jacob at the White County Fair this week.  The kids showed five pigs and placed with one fifth place, one fourth, one third and two first places in their weight classes.  We were happy with their showing when you consider White county has numerous large hog farm operations whose children are competing in the same classes.  Makes me wonder why there isn't a "professional category" for those groups and let us little guys have our own category.  In other words its like David and Goliath.

I have quilted three quilts this week in between fair time.  I even floated on my floaty chair in Lake Freeman yesterday.  I did feel guilty taking 45 minutes out of my quilting schedule just to relax a bit. But I did work until 10:30 last night and I did get the quilt done.  If you want to play, you'll have to pay.

I'll leave you with these encouraging words from my devotion for today by Sarah Young from her book Jesus Calling:

  "I am nearer than you think, richly present in all your moments."

Blessings to all.

  1. you need to take time out, and if you don't it happens anyway in ways you don't want, so I found out this week. And love those words, thanks for sharing.
