In February, Sue had asked that we write a bit about where we live and I just did not get around to it while in Texas. So here I am back in Missouri and I am glad to be home. Don’t get me wrong, being a Winter Texan is great!
Sue’s block was a joy to make, and I think I may have to use that in the next bee I am in. This could get addictive! As you can tell, Bella loved the block too!
We were able to spend time on Padre Island enjoying the ocean breezes and the sunshine. I was surprised at how much I hated leaving all my new friends at the Breezy Lake RV Park….it was like leaving my family! Every Tuesday and Thursday morning we got together for Crafting…we worked on quilting, beading, crochet and knitting. And of course lots of visiting! On Wednesday afternoon, we met for quilting. And of course there were dinners, card games, music and dancing….never boring! Just like much of the nation, the temperatures were much warmer than normal. It got up to 105 in the Rio Grande Valley…not normal!
When we are home, we live in Lees Summit, Missouri. I am fortunate to be surrounded by awesome quilt shops…Missouri Star in Hamilton is about 45 minutes away. Also, Quilters Station is here in Lees Summit…a fabulous treat!
I am most fortunate to live in the same neighborhood as my grandsons, Jack and Caleb. It is so nice to have them ride their bikes over to hang out with me in my art room/sewing room. They enjoy creating too! Every year, on Memorial day weekend, we have a fishing derby for the kids in our subdivision. Lots of fun for all of us!
My flower beds are a great source of joy and work…actually therapy, not work. I have to stop myself from putting in more beds as I need time to tend to them!
Lees Summit is just south of Kansas City, Mo. We are home to the Royals and the Chiefs. Kansas City is also known as the City of Fountains. I love living in this area of the country…I don’t feel like I live in a big city. We have access to so many things and the Lake of the Ozarks is only 2 1/2 hours away. The RV has made many trips to the lake!
Hope you enjoyed this little bit of the area I live in! And if you ever come to the Kansas City area, I hope you will enjoy it and maybe stop by for a visit!
Sharon, what a great beach selfie of you two! Your block is beautiful, love the pinks! You are kidding, Missouri Star is only 45 minutes? Lucky you!
Winter Texan life sounds ideal! And I think that selfie looks great too! Glad to see you made it back safely and your grandkids are happy to see you. I’m surprised – Kansas City is in Missouri?!
