The weekend was good. Friday evening we went to a movie. We slept late Saturday. I played in my garden and sewing room. We had our last two graduation parties to go to Saturday afternoon.

There was a frost/freeze warning Saturday night with temperatures getting down between 33 and 31 degrees. I started out the day angry saying “let the chips fall we they may”---I’m not doing anything. If the flowers and tomato plants freeze in June, I wasn’t meant to have flowers. By 6:00 pm – I was bringing in everything I could and covering everything I couldn’t with blankets.

There was church on Sunday—11 kids in Sunday school. We had the story of Jonah and the Whale, kids love that story. Sunday afternoon we got the tandem bicycle down and went for a ride. Don’t think it was some tranquil stroll with the “bicycle built for two” song in the background. Don rides bicycles for exercise and it’s up to me to keep up. But I guess the work out was good.

Here is a quilt I made that reminds me of summer picnics when I was a kid. We live out in the woods now, so I guess everyday could be a picnic, so we really don’t pack up and go on them. It’s from a Thimbleberries club a couple of years ago, the quilt was made in three sections, receiving one every month. It just reminds me of summer time.

1. Warm weather – In the U.P. you never take it for granted.
2. Cinnamon Muffins for Breakfast.
3. Friday Night dates
4. Ransom sitting next to me.

Until tomorrow – live up today.

Love your Thimbleberries "picnic" quilt. You're right--it really does bring back memories of picnics! Makes me think we need to do that this week!

I like the way the quilt is displayed on the chair - can imagine sitting on it to have a picnic.
