Wow where has my time gone?

Sadly life has just kept me too busy to focus on my blog ;-(
Which since I enjoy reading blogs I follow regularly you would think I would set aside the time to try to keep up with mine? Possibly I had hit a funk? lol
Oh well now is better then NEVER ;-)
Hubby and I made some other roads trips (*NJ -to see Charlotte)
since our MI trip but we freely admit our MI trip was too much squeezed into a week so we both needed some quiet shutdown time to get back on track. ;-) Since he is still working it can be rougher for him.

We've had a nice quiet 4th, I've been back to the pool daily doing my walking/jogging laps which is making me stronger and an extra bonus in hot weather the pool feels great! Yesterday while hubby played with his photo editing I enjoyed a very creative day. I got my quilt top quilted (though cannot show off the quilt yet) and I enjoyed some creative dyeing of silk scarves. Here are some photos share the process.
