Phillies game

Scot and I went to the ball game with Mom and Dad on this last Sunday. It was a late game that started at 8 p.m. because they showed it on ESPN live. It was a good game, that ended around 1:30a.m. I was very happy that Phillies won over Dodgers. We had great seats and a lot of fun!

Visit to "Caroline’s Cottage Cottons", IN

Me and Scot have been very busy this summer going to the pool, working in the garden and travel. I went with Scot on two trips to Chicago, IL. On the way back we visited this little lovely quilt shop “Caroline’s Cottage Cottons”, IN. The whole house is quilt shop, in every room they have different fabrics.

I Can’t Wait To Vacuum!

Have you ever said that? :)) I did! My Dyson Animal has been broken for a little while. I have been asking my husband to call the customer service to fix it. While he was checking what’s wrong he found a crayon that fell from one of the holes and then……guess what…….it is working now!!!! He fixed it! Thank you! Yipeeeee! I couldn’t believe it! Now I can vacuum with my favorite vacuum! 🙂

Olympic Gold Medal for Bulgaria!

Rumyana Neikova has won the first Gold Medal for Bulgaria in Beijing ’08. She won in the row in women’s single scull as she score 7:22, 34 min. The Bulgarian President Georgi Parvanov attended the competition. Rumyana has now a full set of Gold, Silver and Bronze Olympic Medals! I remember watching the Olympic games in Sydney 2000 where she finished the same time with another atlete and the photofinish gave her the silver medal. She did not take any chances this time 🙂 Bravo Rumyana! She has the same name as my Mom 🙂

My Dahlia bloomed this gorgeous yellow color!
I planted first in a pot because my garden was not ready. The garden was full 3 inches with these little red stones me and Scot had to remove. Then I came up with the idea to paint the lower wall white which gave me a good contrast for my flowers. Then we had to move soil, plant the flowers and water with love 🙂 and added brown mulch, that Scot choose and I agree that it looks great. I am very proud of our achievement in the front and side gardens. For now I think we are gonna leave the back for next year ;-).
