July 19, 2012 

Well, finally we were blessed with a little bit of rain overnight! I woke up about 3am not knowing what it was that was rattling the house-and then I remembered! That's what a thunderstorm sounds like! It is certainly about time. The sound of rain pounding against the windows was certainly a welcome sound to many in the area with gardens and crops, I am sure. Let's just hope it wasn't too much, too late. It's always so tricky this time of year to know for sure. 

Just because the ground got a little moisture doesn't mean it's ok to be out watering your yard with more water today. The city of Roseville ban on lawn watering is still in effect until further notice. I will let you know here in the blog when the temporary restriction has been lifted. Until then, if you are caught watering you will be fined by the Roseville police. This summer has certainly been challenging, but together we'll make it through. Just hang in there! 

If you are looking for something fun and different to do, how about heading out to Spike's Skydiving School? As you know, it's three miles north of town at the little airport that many of us have come to call the Roseville Airport. Spike has a deal going out there now. For only $150, you can do a tandem jump with an experienced and licensed instructor hooked onto you. For $100, you can jump yourself-but there are strict restrictions! You must call and find out the details if you are interested. You'd never catch me jumping from 13, 000 feet up in the air from an airplane, but some people just have a crazy hankering to do something silly like that. They call it something for their "bucket list!" 

Speaking of "buckets," Alice Milman will be teaching a class in how to sew a little liner for an ice cream bucket! Imagine that! It's a cute little lining with pockets all around that turns an ordinary plastic bucket into a quilter's tool caddy! Wow! Come on in and sign up-the class will take you either one whole four hour session, or two short two hour sessions. You decide. Either way, we hope to see you soon at Friends Squared Quilts! 

See you tomorrow!
