Flowers and Cakes, Oh My!

This week has gotten away from me. I totally forgot about posting my hexies and scraps yesterday. On Sunday we had a family reunion at my aunt's house. Lots of delicious food and good company.

On Monday my DD's Japanese visitors came to my house for dinner because DD had to go to a leadership course downtown. I took the girls to Walmart afterwards, to do some shopping. I know Walmart isn't too classy, but at least I can borrow one of their scooters and get around the store on my own. We also needed eggs and milk and this Walmart is one of those super stores that has everything.

Tuesday morning I spent drinking coffee, eating goodies, talking quilt talk and doing a little bit of sewing with my quilt buddies. I never miss a chance to do that! In the evening DD's girls cooked a delicious Japanese meal for us.

Yesterday I can't remember what I did. It rained. So today is Thursday and I will finally show you my hexies. These were again taken in my garden. Notice that they are not completely finished. I don't think it will take me long to complete them, so I am counting them towards this week's flowers. There are five of them. My scrap bag does not seem to be getting any smaller, in fact, it seems to be growing! Why is that?
It was a lot cooler today, so I baked a Pflaumenkuchen (a German plum cake) with the plums I bought last weekend. I also baked a zucchini loaf. It's still in the oven. The house sure smells delicious today!Tonight my DD, her Japanese students and I are going to see the Jersey Boys. I'm kind of excited about that. I hope the girls will like it. It's really my era of music and not theirs. Tonight is their last night at my DD's house. Tomorrow they are off to Niagara Falls and then to spend a week at a camp in Haliburton. The last 10 days have gone by quickly.
