Monday, June 18th, Day Twenty-Seven:
Got some cool fabric for my Star-Spangled Quilt at a Mennonite store. It has a sweet note that reads: SEE THE USA...and then is covered with Saint Louis Arches, Mount Rushmores, Old Faithful Geysers from Yellowstone, Empire State Buildings, Statues of Liberty, Jefferson Memorials, Washington Monuments...things we are seeing on THIS trip...as well as a few things from our other trips: The Seattle Space needle, "Hollywood" signs, Golden Gate Bridge.....there is a mission, too......I THINK it MAY be the Alamo, which we have NOT seen...but, it just looks like a California Mission...which we have seen MANY of....anyway...it is in Americana colors and SO appropriate for my quilt.
Also, went to a bookstore, found a great quilt picture book to add to our quilt picture book collection :) I do not have the title here.......hoping to mail it home tomorrow.
And, we stopped by a Mennonite Farmer's market.
On the way home, we finsihed our visit to the New Market Battlefield, walking the "Field of Lost Shoes"....very touching....and, on our way from the viewpoint over the Shenandoah River, it began to rain really hard on us......we got quite saoked by the time we got to the car. Felt good because it was at least 93* and the humidity is quite high. I guess tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter! We will be outside a lot tomorrow.
After dinner, we all went to "Katie's" for ice cream cones. Quite delicious...and, they even had a non-dairy for my younger vegan...the oldest one was not there.
I got groceries for the next leg of our trip......we leave here in the morn.
It may be a while before I get back here....till then, you are all in our prayers.....
