Make-A-List Monday September 2018

The month of September has flown by.  I have been fortunate to get out and enjoy the somewhat cooler weather.  

The construction around Maurice Hawk School continues.  All along, I have had the opinion that this construction is an eyesore and bothersome for all the young children who attend this school.  On Saturday I heard of another perspective.  A young mother explained to me how much her 6 year old son loves to go to school each day because he wants to see the "diggers" and the "balloon animals."  Maybe this construction is only an eyesore to the adults - the children seem to take it all in stride. 






The weather pattern of high humidity and rain continues - as does the proliferation of mushrooms.  I am fascinated by some of the patterns that emerge in nature.   



 A morning moon :)


A beautiful butterfly... 

Deer, deer everywhere!











A beautiful spider web shining in the sunlight.

We traveled to Philadelphia in September to have dinner with JT and Kaela.  


THIRA is getting SO big!!!



I attended the Pennsylvania National Quilt Extravaganza in Oaks, PA.  The quilts were amazing as always.



















And some were very thought provoking...



Imagine my surprise to find one of my quilts displayed in the Quilts for Kids booth!

Just this past weekend all Mets fans said "Good bye" to one of the greatest Mets of all time - David Wright.  I will miss seeing these two great ball players  playing side-by-side on the left side of the diamond.  

We also had the pleasure of attending the wedding of my cousin, Christopher and his beautiful bride, Maura.
This is Chris on the left in the white and gray shirt.  In the chairs are my son, Kyle, and my other cousin and Chris's brother, Justin.  Sitting on the floor are my daughter, Shea, and son, JT.  We think the little girl on the couch is another cousin, Melinda.  This picture is at least 25 years old.  HaHa!

The wedding was beautiful.  It was so much fun to get together with family and friends to CELEBRATE!!






And finally, before I get to my list, these are the words of a fellow blogger that were so meaningful to me, so I thought I would share them here on my blog...
