Home foreclosures are increasing and we are seeing so many small businesses fail. Last week we watched a good friend lose a franchise business that he had been running for 28 years. That is when the funk set in.
I had no idea it would effect me the way it has. Maybe it is because we run a small business. And so do many of our close friends and family members. But at least the weather has been nice.
I did go to my wooly flower class this week. I spent a good deal of the time chatting with the quilt shop owner and also the class teacher, so I didn't make much progress on my latest block. I chose to work on the easiest of the remaining blocks this month because it is summer and I want to spend some time enjoying the outdoors.
And speaking of enjoying the outdoors, the pictures that are shown today are from my yard. I thought I would share a glimpse of my flower beds and the many flowers in bloom right now. The swing is one of my favorite places to relax and read in the summer. It was a gift from my husband on my 30th birthday. It is a little worse for wear, but still holding up well enough.
