Butch is complaining that he has not been on the beach as much as he would like and I am happy to report that he and I spent a wonderful morning on the beach!
I have been a busy woman lately. I am a Hospice Volunteer and here in our community we have a Rummage Market with donated items from members of our community. This year I was in charge of shoes and bags. We had an incredible sale this year. In 3 days we made over $45,000 dollars. :-) and some 50 volunteers. It was a lot of work but what a wonderful cause. This money will go for end of life care for members of our County. Now, one thing you have to understand is we live in a community of 2,500 people. I am just astonished that we were able to bring in this much money. Every year more and more people hear about our sale and plan their vacations around it! I have a month or so off before we start collecting items for our other sales.
This has been one of the best organizations I have ever been part of!
I would encourage anyone to see if there is anyway you can support your local Hospice Organization. I do not think I could ever be a care giver but I sure feel good about helping out in this way.
I hope all of you have a great week and Holiday weekend. Butch and I will be spending more time on the beach.
Oh, and I am quilting. I am trying to finish a couple of projects so I can enter them in our local quilt show mid-September...
