I spent a few hours in the sewing room and got 4 pineapple blocks sewn and started a 5th block. I still need to remove the paper, but that shouldn’t be too big a deal. This makes a total of 8 finished blocks so far … although I’m still about 4 blocks behind on my goal of sewing up a block a week.
We had a little excitement while I was in the sewing room … we got 2.7 inches of rain in about 2 hours with very strong winds … so strong that a neighbor’s gas grill was blown across their patio into their pool.
With that much rain in such a short time, guess whose garden has standing water again? We replanted seeds twice and replanted tomatoes once … we’re done. If our plants don’t survive this, then we’ll just have to get our fresh veggies at the veggie stand. Not to mention that this certainly reaffirmed our decision to put in a raised bed garden out in our back yard next year.
Our appointment with the contractor was right in the middle of the storm, so he called to reschedule for Wednesday afternoon. We’ve got an appointment with another contractor scheduled for tomorrow.
We were misinformed that the pizza place sold half-baked or bake-at-home pizzas … so we bought a pizza, had a couple of slices, and brought the rest of it home for today.
There’s another swim meet this evening. Maybe I can get caught up on my pineapple blocks this afternoon.
