Can you tell that small children have been in our house? Our son's old Grayskull castle and Masters of the Universe character figures are still a hit, as are some old Bristle Blocks.
We did the usual activities with the grandies, though their favorite is riding the golf cart and going to the pool.
As I did with my sister, I carted them to the Sharon Rose Weichens Preserve.

Not a puff of wind, so I could capture this lovely view of the sky reflected on the water.
With temps in the 90s, a walk for two doesn't always end that way.
An impromptu stop at the fire station was a big hit.

I learned that all the fire engines are named after a member of the Morse family that founded The Villages.
It was great having them here, but I also know they were looking forward to their next stop at Disney World.
I turned my sewing room from a bedroom back into a sewing room, I again worked on the quilt I've been designing. I don't like where it's headed, and I'm getting sick of stewing and messing with it. For a while, it will be on the back burner.
Wanting to make progress on something, I pulled out the Building Fun (by Geta Grama) quilt top that just needs borders. It's up next for quilting.
On the home front... now that the bar front has been tiled, and we have some of our new furniture (waiting on the sofa which arrived damaged), and a new rug, that big expanse of white wall is begging to be painted. I keep thinking green is needed, but the hubs doesn't like or want green. Have been thinking of orange, but there are too many options!
I went to the Behr paint website and found a place where I could upload my photo and "paint" the room with different colors. Isn't this a neat feature?! It's definitely helping me narrow my options. Blonde Wood might be a bit intense, and perhaps not orange enough.
It's just as difficult to choose a paint color as it is to pick the right fabrics for a quilt, isn't it? Linda
