July 15 – Day 65 – Saturday
For God is my King of old,
working salvation in the midst of the earth.
Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength:
thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.
Thou didst cleave the fountain and the flood:
thou driedst up mighty rivers.
The day is thine, the night also is thine:
thou hast prepared the light and the sun.
Thou hast set all the borders of the earth:
thou hast made summer and winter.
Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks,
unto thee do we give thanks:
for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.
the Farmer got up at his normal time,
I got up earlier than normal because
we have many miles to go until we sleep.
About 25 minutes after we go on the road
we met Texas
golden corn as far as the eye can see
Texas street signs,
no names just numbers, large numbers
Mineola, Texas is one neat town!
found in the free parking lot for the town.
First, it is the home of
Stitchin’ Heaven, a quilt shop,
where I have purchased many dollars worth of fabric and quilt kits,
was one of the first stops I put on our journey.
I don’t think I’ve finished a quilt from them,
but I am still alive, so there is hope.
I got to walk through the doors
and breathe deeply of that one-of-a-kind odor, new fabric.
I wandered all around the shop a couple times,
(it’s a good thing this shop is not located
within 50 miles of Sacramento)
picking up odds and ends of quilty stuff and
next Thanksgivings jigsaw puzzle.
When we are finished with the puzzle
it goes to my mother.
This magnet -boot on white- will go on my fridge –
I know you can’t believe it.
Secondly, it has more antique stores in the 2 X 3 block area
than in any town we have visited.
What a place for a thimble hunt.
First shop we entered = Nestfeathers, drool,
a darling shop, the owner is a quilter!
Cute quilty stuff, no thimble.
Second shop – Between Friends
found homemade cookies
must keep up my strength for hunting,
found a special gift for ‘T’
No thimble, but received a map of the town
with circled possibilities.
Third shop – Karen’s Korner
Aunt Jemima was waiting to go to California!
I’m getting hungry for pancakes.
Kyle and Autumn get ready for brunch!
We did all this in less than two hours!
On to Oklahoma!
Some pruning needs to be done on their sign,
too bad they don’t have a Farmer.
Even the smallest town across the states
have one or more pizza parlors and
a subway either free standing or in a gas station.
As we neared Oklahoma City
we could see the clouds darkening
and rain in the distance.
We drove right through this afternoon storm.
Temperature before the storm in the 90’s,
after in the 70’s with a nice breeze.
This doesn’t happen often,
usually it just gets muckier after a storm.
Arrived at Roadrunner RV Park
just before the office closed.
Again my view isn’t exciting,
but sitting quietly knitting in a cool breeze was a treat.
The Morning and Evening of the sixty-fifth day.
