~ Dead End ~

I live on a cute little four house street that dead ends into the woods. When we first bought our house, we noticed alot of cars driving to the end of the road and, very poorly, trying to turn around...usually in our yard in which we were trying desperately to grow grass. I asked the city to put up a Dead End sign to (hopefully) decrease the amount of unnecessary traffic. They kindly obliged... think?????

Sometimes I wonder about the workings of our quaint little community's government. Picture Barney Fife, Mayberry, USA ;-)

But this sign kind of symbolizes how I feel right now. I've had an abrupt end to my summer.
I was quite dismayed to learn that I would be spending my last week of Summer vacation here... I was afraid it would interfere with this...

Fortunately, I was "respectively" rejected and was able to make my hair appointment. Yay!! A cut, color, and more gray for me ;-)

 As you are reading this, I am back at school, setting up my little therapy room. Can I get a collective *sigh*!!! The reality of the real world must be faced, which means no more marathon quilting sessions for me.

 And just when I was starting my newest project.  

Ah...Kate Spain's Serenade

Thanks, as always, for visiting my blog!!

  1. I hope the sign works. Unfortunately drivers will probably still be driving right up to the sign and then saying, "HUH?" That pile of Serenade looks so pretty!

    When I read your blog today my first thought was "it's all good." Have a great school year!!

  3. that would be annoying to have all those people turning around and using part of your yard! Wondering how long before that sign will be buried in all those plants. Glad to hear you got out of jury duty!

  4. Great post! The placement of the Dead End sign is priceless. Going to miss our long early morning chats.

  5. So, you got dismissed? Well, congratulations! I need a cut and color so bad! Sorry to hear school's about to start again for you already. Your summer break seems really short!

    That sign is a hoot!
