Quilt Show & Woodworking Show

Today many of our Palm Creek crafters and artists displayed their talents!

Woodworking Show

I thought this was quite clever!

From the Quilting Show:

Quilts of Valor for our Veterans

Dolores was there to provide piano music.

So much of their work is truly a "labor of love".

While out on a bike ride to enjoy the beautiful weather this afternoon, I spotted this cute display.  Looks like the flamingos were busy while they were here.

The fires were roaring at Monday morning coffee to keep us warm while we dined on hot coffee and a fresh doughnut.  We gather to hear a run down of all the events that will occur during the week plus any announcements or updates.

Looks like the Bistro is almost ready.  Should be open for business in another week or so.  The dining room has been decorated and looks nice.  I took a few pictures through the window.

The kitchen area is still under construction but I can see the new pizza oven in place.

Furniture and wall decor has been added to the foyer of the ballroom.  Looks great.

Pottery Show

Yes, I have been negligent with my postings lately but it is truly because I'm having so much fun at all the activities around here.  This morning I took time out to visit the pottery show.  I was most impressed with the way the potters have cleaned and decorated the pottery room to put everything on display!  It must have taken a lot of work to make the rooms look so nice.  Congratulations to one and all who were involved.

Sure hope I win some of the nice projects that were being raffled.

Many people tell me they mostly miss pictures of the cats.

Kat is still here and loves to keep me company while I work.  It would be most helpful if he didn't insist on leaning on the keyboard though.

They are sweet and adorable and have become very good friends.

Always looking for mischief however.  They love it when we shop at Amazon because it means new boxes!

Here's what I found when I came home from the pottery show this morning.  Chairs and objects on the floor.  It must have been race time.

I must hurry up to the card room now so farewell till the next post.

Have a GREAT day!

Drone Videos

The big blue harvest moon came up over the horizon.  Big and beautiful.

We sent the drone up over the north 40 to check on progress.  Many BIG trucks out there these days as they install curbs and pave the roads.  Even started landscaping along the walking trail.

Don was the guest speaker at our computer club on Wednesday.  Folks were anxious to learn more about flying a drone so Don was happy to explain how he got started and what the machine is capable of doing.

He even demonstrated by flying around the room.

Later we stopped at the kitchen for the Wednesday lunch.

Dolores and Larry were there to entertain us while we dined.

DELICIOUS sliders and curly fries!!!

It was a busy day and I noticed that every one of the shuffle board courts was busy and occupied.

Even these eager beavers were up in the early morn to get their trucks washed.


Of course Don had to practice his presentation at home before heading to the computer club.  Kat and Mouse weren't exactly thrilled.
