Oct. 18….Heterogeneous….

Now isn’t that a fancy word for miscellaneous!😁 that is exactly what this post is,a little of this and a little of that!

For the first little …

Hubby and son( Mike ) need to put time in on their diving,so they look for interesting ways to do this. Here is one of the ways they put that time to use…

Hubby said it is something that he wants to do again! Maybe next time I’ll go along to run the kayak to put their trash in.

On to the next little…

Look at darker spot in the photos that is a curled up leaf, when the wind blow the leaf out of the sun it was all dark, with the sun a red spot.

Some more littles….

Daughter-in-law made this cream cheese peach cake.. it was heavenly!

This was a morning glory vine that was huge and full of lovely blooms.

Of course ,there has to be some lake views..

And what’s a post without a quilt …

This quilt I purchased off of eBay. The lady ,Mable Minard, made the top was from Truro, Iowa, born in 1900 and pieced the quilt around late 1920’s to early 1930’s.

I love it’s uniqueness. I do believe that some of its fabrics are older than 1920’s but l will post more photos of it in another post when I go to hand quilt it.

Have a great weekend!

  1. What a wonderful quilt! I’m so glad you are going to quilt it. It’s been waiting nearly 100 years to be complete. Not even MY UFOs are that old. =) Looks like lots of fun at a beautiful lake.

    1. I have to wonder why it was never finished as the lady was in her twenties to thirties when it was hand piece together… we do enjoy our time at the lake, it’s a blessing to us all in many ways!

  2. Your photos are great–so much variety and cool details. I love the photo of Leona looking so content and your guys did a really good deed while practicing their diving. Now . . . that quilt! I love it! The way she has used the red is so interesting!

    1. Thank you, Kerry! I too, like the way she used the red , that caught my eye instantly. Hubby found an old bell shape anchor that he wants to clean up… I think it would look great in a little flowerbed up at the lake.

    1. We did! They are even nicer now that it has cooled off from those 100* days. You could be right that she just never got around to it. I guess if you never get yours quilted maybe a hundred years later they might, and be a real treasure .😊

    1. The Savannah River had three dams added to it , for to help the city of Augusta,Ga from flooding so much ,to aid more wildlife and to create power. The US army engineer corps. built the R.B. Russell dam ( the dam closest to our lot)in the 1970’s ,So the trees haven’t decayed away yet. Perfect habitat for Ospreys

  3. What a great post with all the family and nature photo’s. All made me smile. Love your eBay find – it truly is beautiful. I am always scouring eBay/Goodwill for those treasures. Those muted tones are really soft and comforting and mentioning comforting, Leona sure looks comfy 🙂 Sharon
