The Weekend Wrap-up – a Day Late
I was all set to do my wrap-up yesterday morning, but I had just gotten out of bed when DD called … she was not feeling well (some kind of tummy bug) and needed me to come get the Ts. I had just enough time to get dressed and get to her house to scoop up the Ts and get them to swim practice on time. In order to make up for the delay in getting the wrap-up posted, I’m going to throw in an extra day! Ha!
We went to visit my dad Friday. We picked up some homegrown sweet corn and took some out to him … it sure made a nice addition to our lunch. I know that it’s officially summer when the locally grown sweet corn is in.
Saturday the rains came in, with a heavy downpour and hail to kick things off.
It was raining so hard that our gutters and buried drains couldn’t handle it (sorry for the blurriness ... I had to zoom in to get a good shot of the rain overflowing ... I had to take the picture from inside the house). The “upside” of the rain was that it brought cooler weather … a little too cool to suit me.
Sunday after church, we stopped at the garden. The ground is wet, but thankfully there’s no standing water.
We’ve got another tomato and a whole lot more blossoms. Our green beans are holding on, but while our neighbors’ beans are 6’ tall already, ours are only a few inches tall. We don’t have much hope of getting any green beans. Our zucchini has another blossom … I couldn’t see any little zucchinis, so we’re afraid that the blossoms we saw a week or so ago were knocked off by the hard rain we had on Monday. After lunch the last of the decking contractors stopped by.
I got a good amount of quilting done over the weekend.
I’m just about done with body of the quilt … then on to the borders. Good thing I got a lot of quilting done over the weekend as I didn’t touch needle or thread on Monday. As I mentioned earlier, DD was sick … so we had the Ts all day. She was starting to feel a little bit better when I took them back home, but she had a relapse not too long before I came back home. So we might have the Ts again today (although a part of me hopes not … not because I don’t want T-time, but because I am hoping that DD is over that bug ).
Have a terrific Tuesday!
