Anyone doing some fall stitching?
I also finished Margaret Randolph. This girl has been traveling with me for the last year. I am glad that she is finished. I love the greens and blues.
I received this lovely gift yesterday from my friend Kathy(no blog). Isn't it fabulous? Thank you my Friend!
So back to the D, Detroit of course. I went the beginning of the month to help set up 2 sites.
The first week didn't go that well. The construction wasn't done on the sites so there was some waiting around. I was going to come back the next week to help and it would be more for me to fly home and back than to stay in Detroit so I spent the weekend.
I saw this sign and was asked if I was there for the tour? Well sure!
Since the pierogi festival was nearby on Canfield I headed there. Yum!
On Sunday I joined the Detroit Mass Mob at St. Josephat Church on Canfield, just 3 blocks down from Sweetest Heart of Mary.
Later on Sunday I went to my friend's mother's house for dinner and to do laundry. It was like coming home from college for the weekend.
Since I had found out about the theater tour I spoke with Rich about coming to Detroit for the next weekend and since I had miles and we were planing on maybe going somewhere before his surgery he got on a plane!
I picked him up Friday afternoon and in a last minute stubhub purchase at 4:40 pm we went to see Kid Rock. It was a great show, when you have the chance to see someone play their hometown do it!
Then Saturday morning at 9am we started the theater tour.
Most of these venues were movie palaces.
The view from the stage.
I really would love to see a show here!
Another movie palace that was restored in the late 80's.
What an amazing time. The tour was 5 hours. They only do this tour once a year. If you ever have the chance to take this tour it is wonderful. Preservation Detroit did an amazing job. We had perfect weather for the tour too.
We also went back to Eastern Market,
Then a little down time. I think Rich was tired.
We had dinner with Tina at Hungarian Rhapsody.
Monday Rich had his pre-op appointments and Tuesday the 18th Rich had surgery. It went well, the cancer was contained and did not show up in the margins or lymph nodes. Unfortunately the surgery caused and other issue and Rich had another surgery on the 28th. He is still uncomfortable and in pain and is frustrated with this setback. Thank you for sending good thought and well wishes our way. Hopefully this time next week he will be feeling better.
We also had another couple of milestones in August. Our house is paid off! Woohoo!
Wow, if you made it through this thank you for traveling with me! I really need to post more but I am still looking for that balance in my life.
If you are in the U.S. have a wonderful Labor Day weekend and for my international friends, do some exploring and have some fun!
