Once again another week is winding down, which means that it’s Fragment time.
I had the Ts yesterday. Mama has been having a little trouble with what she thought was an irritated eye … went to the eye doctor and turns out she’s got an eye infection. I got to watch the littles while she went to the doctor. We stopped at the Dairy Queen on the way home … I didn’t know that they played Christian music there! What a blessing that was. Although I don’t think everyone there was paying attention to the message of the music … there were a couple of older women with a young boy a few tables over. At one point, we heard one of the women bark out a very harsh “shut up” to the boy … it made me sad.
I did get a little quilting done after the Ts went back home. I’m on the last block, and then I’ll quilt the outer border … I’m doing just a straight row of stitching on the border, so it shouldn’t take too awfully long. Then it will be time to bind it and start quilting the log cabin quilt.
Tomorrow we’ll go back to my dad’s to check on him and have a nice visit. He’s got a couple of minor repairs that we hope to help him with. Neither DH nor I are very handy with repairs, so we’ll see how that goes. Ought to be interesting. ha!
We had to water our ornamental cherry tree last night … it was really drooping. It’s been so dry and unseasonably warm (even hot) here that everything’s suffering. The leaves on our dogwood are scorched. Our grass is already brown and crispy in places … and it’s only early June! We sure could use some rain.
My sister, her S.O. and her grandson will be coming down for a visit next week. I'm not sure right now just what their plans are ... the only thing I know for sure is that they’ll be here on Thursday because we have tickets to the Cardinals game that evening.
Fed Ex and UPS are both scheduled to make deliveries here today. I just love getting packages delivered. It’s like Christmas in June!
