a relaxing few days

Once we got back from Yuma, I have just been busy, but in a good way. Dayana and the baby were gone when we got back, but another young wife is staying with us while her husband is in the field.
Yesterday, Lauren ( the young wife) helped me get the last of my quilts put together and pinned. That was such a huge help to me. I did reach my goal of 30 pet quilts in 30 days. However I did not get them all put together. So I am finishing up some and I will deliver them next week.
I have really been trying to cook Rusty some good hardy meals. After being in Yuma and eating nothing but fast food, he was ready for some good home cooking. Last night I made chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes, corn, saw mill gravy and a lemon cake. I told Rusty that if he dropped dead from all the fat.... well I am sorry. He loved the meal.
It has really cooled off down here. Our highs are only in the 70's and I must say that it feels good. I am just wondering if we are going to get one last heat wave. I guess only time will tell.
Today I worked on cleaning up the man cave. I swear Rusty just comes in and drops his shit and he will leave it there until he needs it again. Well I put everything away, and I even cleaned the baseboards. This room is bigger then I thought!
We have a ball next week, and I am really forward to this one. For some reason last year I was just dreading it, but not this year! I am wearing a dress I wore before, I have a purse, now all I need are some shoes. I need to go dig through my closet and make sure that I don't have any dress shoes. Last night I was telling Rusty that I needed a pair of dress shoes, and he just shook his head as if to say then go buy them. I finally asked Rusty what shoes I wore before when I wore that dress. He said that is he remembers correctly I did not wear shoes. Anything is possible with me.
Life is so good

Glad to hear you had a nice time in Yuma. We are going to a ball again next month too. I am going to the ball gown exchange here on base to see if I can find a "free" dress. And I dont think we need shoes...I tend to take mine off right after dinner

Kelli you always give people a place to stay. You are a nice person to do that.

Dinner sounded good. Chicken fried steak is my husband's favorite meal. He has to go to Shoney's or Cracker Barrel to get his fix.

If we have chicken fried steak, Bob makes it. It is soooooo good! If I went to one of those fancy affairs I'd wear flip flops under my dress....Linda in Washington

You have influenced me. Now I m thinking of buying a pet quilt for Baby, Raymond's border collie. Ha. I am going to ask Raymond is she has one. I think I will send it to him for his birthday either for Baby or him! They are on sale at Walgreens. I never thought of what a quilt might mean to a pet before. I know you influenced me to buy a hand knitted snuggle blanket for my new great grand daughter. Now I am thinking of the gifts for Xmas I am going to get their mothers, the most darling knitted caps at the Farmer's Market. I love mine. I am sleeping under Sister Ann's quilt. It is so warm and comforting. I love this quilt. Gerry
