As I reported here, I had the Ts on Monday … and Tuesday and Wednesday. And might have had them Thursday except DSIL was off for the holiday. Poor DD … as much as I loved having the Ts, I would have rather had DD feeling better. She’s feeling better … not 100% yet, but thankfully she’s feeling well enough to have the kiddos back home with her.
We didn’t do anything special for Independence Day this year … DH wasn’t feeling 100%, so we had a quiet day at home. I spent my day quilting … I finished up the body of the quilt and am now working on the borders … I see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Thankfully whatever “bug” DH had was a short-lived one, so our “road trip” is still on for today. DH wants to go to a hardware store over in St. Charles … he heard that they have a huge display of decking materials which he wants to check out for our deck reno. There’s a large quilt shop that won’t be too far out of our way, and I have a coupon for 20% off, so we’ll be stopping there. DH never complains about stopping at fabric stores, so this time was no exception … although I’m sure that the promise to have lunch at the nearby Potbelly’s didn’t hurt. I’ll be picking up the fabrics for my next quilt … the paper-pieced storm at sea. And perhaps I’ll pick up another blue or two for my mini pineapples.
We got almost 2” of rain on Tuesday … and of course, that meant standing water in the garden. <sigh> DH reported on Wednesday that most of the standing water was gone. So far our plants seem to be surviving the recurring standing water, but it’s easy to see that they’re not doing as well as they could or should as a result of all that water. We’ll stop by the garden on our way out of town and see how it’s doing. I suspect that the ground will be dry enough tomorrow for us to be able to get out and work on the weeds … unlike our plants, the weeds seem to be thriving in spite of almost weekly bouts of standing water.
Am I the only one who thinks that today is Sunday (I thought yesterday was Saturday)?
Have a fabulous Friday!
