Little Bumps in the Road

I really hate to admit it. Hate to say right here for everyone to see how very clumsy I can be at times. Hate it. Oh well. Sunday night when Mr. Wonderful and I got home from church, in getting out of the car I somehow got my feet tangled in the straps of my bags on the floor of the car. Next thing I knew I was on the driveway, a little bit shocked and a lot in pain. Thank God, nothing is broken, just bruised. I've taken most of this week to try to take it easy and keep my knee elevated and iced. So, no sewing at all going here.

I hope to remedy that tonight. This one has been calling out to me from the cabinet where it is stashed. I still have to finish quilting it (I'm about half through) and sew on the binding.

Outside our back door today you can see that there is still plenty growing in the remains of summer. It has been cooler for the past week, and that is so nice! I've had enough of summer, thank you very much.

Don't you love the yellow angel's trumpet? You should smell the wonderful fragrance when you walk outside at night. Heaven!
I haven't had quite enough of these field peas yet,which, when shelled are so pretty, and when cooked are delicious. Just those and some cornbread and this country girl is happy!
I also haven't had enough of picking fresh flowers to put on our dining room table.
So, I guess it's a good thing that summer for us probably won't be over for another month or so.
Enjoy your day - whatever the weather!!
Hugs and kisses,
