I got another couple of pineapple blocks sewn yesterday … I’ve got a total of 10 completed and have started an 11th. I pulled out my strips when I started this, but I’m thinking about digging through my stash to see if there are any larger pieces of other blues to use. I’m hoping to get a couple more sewn together after lunch this afternoon. I also did a little hand quilting while we watched the baseball game last night.
Right before our trip to Florida, I discovered a small knot on the arch of my foot. I saw my doctor about it yesterday afternoon … the knot is some kind of cyst on the plantar fasciitis, and she referred me to a specialist. I’ll make the appointment and see what he has to say … since the knot rarely causes any discomfort – and even then, not nearly enough to keep me from being able to do whatever I’d like, I’m not too inclined to do anything drastic if there won’t be any serious consequences to leaving it be (such as continued growth of the cyst, etc.).
On the way home from the doctor’s office, I stopped by the garden. Remember the standing water I reported? Thankfully it dried up quickly, so while I’m sure it wasn’t very good for the garden, hopefully it didn’t last long enough to kill off anything. Everything is growing … just very, very slowly. I did discover that 3-4 of our tomato plants have blossoms! Maybe we’ll have tomatoes at least?
Tomorrow is the first day of summer … and summer-like weather is coming in, right on cue. The high today is supposed to be 90 with temperatures in the 90’s for the next 7 days (even then, when it “cools” off, it’ll be in the upper 80’s).
