I was on the Adrian Senior Center Handchime float. We had a great time. There were several differnt floats from the center showing all the wonderful things you can do at the center. I made an Eight Foot Banner to lead all our group. It was a challenge sewing it being I had injured my back and could not stay in one position for long before having to move aroumnd . But I perservered and got it done on Friday before the parade. I took it in on Friday to the center director and she had to show it over the lunch hour . The seniors loved it and I was so glad I could do something to give back to the center. Here is a picture of it leading the Center Floats and cars.
The antique car belongs to one of our seniors. He and his wife love going to the parades. Sure was a beautiful car.
The line dancers from the center walked the route. They sure looked peppy. Did not get to stop and dance along the route . It would have been great if they could have but they kept us moving right along at a pretty good clip. We have several that come in twice a week for line dancing that are in their 80's and 90's and let me mention they could dance me under the table with their moves. One gentleman is a retired Doctor and is 93. He comes for the biginner session and stays right through the advanced session both days they dance plus does any performances they do which may be 3-4 a week at times. He never even gets winded and never misses a beat.
Here are the line dancers.
I might mention the theme of our County Fair this year is "City Meets Country". As you can see we went with the Country theme.
I have managed to get started on a few craft ornaments for the Christmas Holidays this week. Am going to do a couple tutorials on these as I go along.Now things are settled for the summer I would like to be able to post here at least 2-3 times a week. These are a few I am working on at this time.
I also have several small birdhouses I am painting . After I get a few done I will share them with you too. Oh I bought cork to do gingerbread men and women out of too. As you can tell I am in the crafting mode once again. Been a long time since I have really done a lot. And I have to say sewing the banner really has gotten me wanting to get back to sewing again. And that is good since I bought the fabric for 6 different wall hanging I need to quilt for Christmas.
Well we have another first that has transpired this week. I got up this morning to the words "She said yes" posted on my Facebook page. The first of the grandchildren is going to be getting married. Boy can I be that old. He is leaving in another week for the Marines and now a wedding to plan. I think the family will be a bit on the busy side. What do you think? The grand babies are just growing up way too fast to suit me. In three weeks the oldest heads off to Chicago for a year and a half of Grad School. Does not seem like she is old enough to be a college graduate let alone now being in her own apartment and going to Graduate School. Where have the years gone.
I hope that you all are having a great week and remember " Smile and the Whole World Smiles With You. " Have no idea who said it but I love the saying.
