Progress on Barnyard Kitten

Good evening! It's hot and humid outside, a good day to have spent inside with the airconditioner on. Tomorrow will be hot too for a while, they say we'll have a lot of rain the next 3 days. We need it.

This week has been a wierd but busy week. Monday my internet and phone service went out again. I called comcast and asked why it happened so often and I was sick of it. I was nice of it. They sent someone out Friday. He replace the wall plate. Oh my phone service and internet service were out when he arrived. But he got it to working again. He thinks it might be something in wiring in the wall but he thought maybe the wall plate would help. Also that day I let firefox update something and I never should have. Finally called or I should say got through to Geek Squad and they helped me get things going. Also reocommended I use google chrome. Well I uploaded that today, and I don't know. I ended up using firefox so I could upload a picture here. I think I will be going back and forth between the two. I couldn't find where chrome put the picture I uploaded.

Friday was also my birthday. I did go out with some friends and had a nice lunch. But most of the day I fretted over my computer, and cat. My cat is fine and the computer is fine now.

Wed. I got to go with my sister-in-law and niece and great nieces and nephews to Dutch Village in Holland, MI. It had been years since I had been there. It's changed a lot. They had rides and animals. The kids got to ride the rides, especially the girls. Johnny was more interested in learning things. He liked seeing how they made wooden shoes, and in a little Dutch Schoolhouse, took in some of the Dutch words on the chalk board also dressed up like a dutch boy. The girls got into dutch girls costumes. To be honest, they looked natural on them, even though they are not dutch at all. The kids got to feed the goats, all three liked that. The girls and I did the dutch dance with the dutch dancers after seeing a performance by them they asked the audience to join in. Well, at least those that would. I couldn't say no to the girls. But it was a fun day. Isaac being only a month old needless to say slept through it all for most part. It was first time I saw him.

Thursday was a funeral. It was a sweet spanish lady from our church. Half the funeral was in spanish the other half english. It was a huge funeral which we knew it would be as everyone loves the family.

Well....until next time....Happy Stitching. Hopefully this piece will be done mid week.
