Weekly Update

Summer is here in Southwest Texas. It has been in the 90s each day with thunder showers popping up here and there in the afternoons. My week has been good with my daughter and grandkids coming for dinner Thursday evening. I enjoy cooking in the crock pot and all I have to do is see, dinner's ready and they are here. My granddaughter had another great night of riding in the Youth Rodeo summer series. She is improving each week. Here are a couple of pictures from this past Monday night.

Also, our monthly stitch in on Saturday morning with 10 stitchers. We enjoy getting together once a month, with one of the ladies hosting it at her home.

Ah, the crockpot! Best invention ever, IMO! Good looking horse your granddaughter has. Your progress and starts are looking good as usual. I'm planning on starting the LHN ornament soon myself.
