I think these daisy pincushions are quite cute. I would like to make more in different colors.

Other fun news for the weekend: I bought a small camera to keep in my purse. It's always a bit of a hassle to drag along the giant Nikon, despite the lovely pictures it produces. Now that I have a camera to keep in my purse, hopefully I will be better about taking pictures.

Friday and Saturday were spent in Monticello visiting Joshua's grandparents, dad, step-mother, and brother and sisters. It had been quite a long time since we made that trip, so it was nice to see everyone. We made it to all of Monticello's 4th of July festivities, including opening of the new swimming pool, parade, and fireworks.
Sunday, Shaun came up with a lovely grilled dinner. She supplied all of the food and preparation, and I supplied the grill. I love it when she does the dinner thinking. The menu included spicy chicken kabobs, grilled corn with sweet and spicy butter, grilled flatbread, and a little salad for good measure. All the recipes were a success and will be made again.
Yesterday, Shaun and I were adventurous and drove up to Aurora to the outlet mall and to another mall in Naperville. Linda the GPS got us there in a very roundabout fashion, but we got there and had a lovely time. There were lots of crowds but sales to make up for it. Sometimes it's just fun to get out and see what else is going on.
Today I'm off to Orion to visit my parents and practice with Jane for special music on Sunday. I've done special music in church every summer since about 6th grade. I would feel bad stopping now.
Goals for the week:
- Figure out why the brand new, professionaly installed garbage disposal is leaking.
- Paint the main bathroom and get the trim reinstalled.
- Call again about a deck permit.
