Each day, I think I am going to get into the stewdio and sew! There are sew many projects waiting for me, and I am now having withdrawal pangs! But.....
Each day that passes, the weather gets more and more like Kansas summer! We've had numerous days now in the 80's and 90's, so I MUST finish the yard work before it is intolerable to work outside. I only have 2 more flats of petunias to plant around the new little fountain I installed yesterday, one more hosta by the re-located fountain that may have a leak in it, and one more penstemmon and it's supports to do, and then it's good. Grass cutting will be all that is necessary then.
My son will be coming home the end of June with his two girls. He had been in the Army for 13 years, and after his tour in Iraq, and a nasty divorce, he decided that he wanted to be closer to his family roots. He won custody of his two girls, ages 7 and 12 ,and they have never had "family", so this will be a good thing! It will be somewhat crazy at our house, though, while they live here until school starts in August. We've gotten quite accustomed to the empy nest and the quiet and contemplation that brings. On the other hand, having them close to us will add yet another dimension to our lives.
Yesterday, Hubby had some surgery for skin cancer on top of his noggin. Let this be a warning about wearing hats and sun screen when you are outside. Of course, his was caused by his immuno-suppression drugs, so it's not 100% not wearing a hat, but still, a word to the wise! And then today, I took Mother to the doctor because I suspected she had broken some ribs when she fell in her apt the other day. And, yes, she did, and now she has her Loritab, heat pad and a volumetric exerciser to help keep her from pain and pneumonia. Sheesh! When can I sew?
Well, how about today? And how about I do something with these lotto blocks from last year? It wouId be nice to get them off my worktable and into a quilt top... wonder what I'll do?
