Another One Of Those Perfect Days

We had a wonderful evening last night with our family—Lonn, LoraLee, Katie and Michael.  The excitement is building—the wedding is nine days away.  We enjoyed a delicious meal of steaks, garlic mashed potatoes, Katie’s favorite salad with poppy seed dressing and homemade bread.  For dessert we had homemade chocolate ice cream. 

After dinner and dessert we gave Katie and Michael their wedding present—a quilt I made for them—I think they liked it judging from their expressions:Katie and Michaels quilt2 Didn’t realize the shadows from the deck railing were in all the photos until I went to post them—oh, well.Katie and Michael's lonestar quilt

I spent the entire day quilting and finished Shirley’s (my friend and neighbor) lonestar quilt.  When I take it off the frame in the morning, I will take some photographs.  I am so pleased with the way it turned out.

Michael had a not so great day—flat tire on the skidsteer and the hay baler won’t bale but I have total confidence in his ability to fix the baler even if he doesn’t.  And evidently there is a nation wide shortage of agricultural and industrial tires—only one manufacturer in the US and they are one month behind on orders—so we wait for a tire for the skidsteer. 

Tonight we enjoyed a wonderful evening with Joe, Tammy and their two teenagers, Jeff and Patrick.  Joe grilled some awesome chicken and I provided a salad with lettuce from my garden.  I also made the homemade chocolate ice cream again as I know Jeff and Patrick love homemade ice cream.  Joe’s Mom Helen is also visiting and Nat came with us—he and Helen certainly enjoy each other’s company.  

Just another great Montana summer day!
