My mother has joined the Red Hat Society, and since I am her chauffeur, I have joined as well. Our group is going to make a trip this weekend. I've been concerned about the weather. Today it's supposed to get to 94, and tomorrow it should reach 97. Given my mother's age, I was worrying about the heat. The forecasters are predicting a slight cooling for Saturday....85. Who'd have ever thought that we'd consider 85 cool??
The ladies are gathering Saturday morning to make a trip to Princeton, Illinois for lunch at the country club, and a trip to Hornbaker's Gardens. Hornbaker's is famous for their selection of hostas and day lilies. I'm sure to have plants in the trunk on the way home.
Princeton is an interesting town. They also have a wonderful quilt shop, and a place where you can get replacement pieces for your antique china. A friend has recommended a clothing boutique.
I hope we luck out with the weather. The temperature is supposed to drop because of the chance of thunderstorms. We need the rain desperately, but we have easily a two hour drive, so it would be disappointing if we weren't able to carry out our plans.
