Once again, another weekend has come and gone. Even though I’m retired, the weekends seem to fly by.
I had a very quiet weekend … the only thing on my schedule was going to DD’s to care for her cats and to water the plants they put in just before it got hot and dry.
On Friday, I watered the new plants I put in the landscaping along the east side of the house and noticed this:
I should have laid a quarter next to the crack to give an idea of how big of a crack it is … I did measure it, and it’s 2” wide at the widest and 3” deep. This is on the east side of the house, where it gets only morning sun … and is not the only one either.
I mentioned, already, that my sweetie thought to check to see if our library had NCIS on DVD for rent … and brought home Season One. I had an NCIS marathon this weekend … and quilted while getting caught up on the NCIS team. I’m ready for Season Two now.
Sunday we spent our evening moving all our furniture and cleaning out our coat closet and our pantry in preparation for the floor refinishers to arrive tomorrow morning.
While I didn’t take this picture (DD sent it Saturday from her cell phone, hence the less-than-stellar quality), I had to share a picture of my new grandpuppy.
Her name is Hollie, and she’s a Bichon/Yorkie mix puppy. I hope to get to meet her face-to-face over the next couple of days. Speaking of DD, they returned from their Colorado vacation late Saturday evening. I can’t wait to see them (and Hollie)!
I’m sure that by now all of you are aware of the horrible tragedy in Aurora, CO. A fellow quilter Quiltingranny is hoping to be able to help those who had to respond to this horrible event by providing hand-made quilts or blankets and has asked for some help in putting out the request. You can get more information at her website.
