One huge sigh of relief...I finished my 927 page almost too heavy to lift book...City On Fire. I ran through a gamut of feelings with this book...love...hate...impatience...awe...and finally relief! It is amazing to me that this author was able to put all the pieces of this huge book together...the partitions between chapters...the epilogues...were amazing and often annoying...the fonts were all different and often hard to read. It just makes me wonder what this author will write next. Whew!
So...Satuday Den and I drove for 27 minutes to get to my Amish quilt lady's house. My first time ever in an Amish home. It was pristine...she has five children and the girls were all doing housework...laundry, floor washing, gardening. We looked at my quilts by lantern light. It was so cool. I now have a new Amish bestie! We have to go back to take her quilt binding. And...she said I can come watch her can in August! She can't quilt during canning months.
On our way home we stopped at a farm stand...also Amish...and bought local fruits and vegetables...tomatoes, baby beets, corn, cucumbers, peaches, green beans, Lima beans, candy onions, all delicious! And I bought this sign...perfect for now...right?
