I wasn’t going to blog again before we left, but I’m suffering from withdrawal … so here I am.
I finished up all my triangle blocks for DD’s quilt yesterday … may I say that I’m tired of large triangles? I’m ready to start assembling the blocks into rows … I just need DD to decide if she wants chevrons or herringbone. Maybe I’ll like this quilt better when I start the quilting … since that’s my favorite part even on quilt tops that are more “my style”. Seriously though, all that really matters is that DD likes it.
I went for a walk last night and saw this at a neighbor’s.
Forgive the blurriness … I took the picture with my iPhone … I would have liked to have tried to get a little closer for a better picture, but I was worried that the neighbors might freak if they looked out their window to see me tip-toing through their yard toward their house and that the hawk might decide that I was too close and fly off.
After my walk, I checked out our garden. Our zucchini is hanging on … I wouldn’t say it’s thriving, but it’s still alive. And our lettuce and green beans are coming up!
Hope it’s not too late for the lettuce … the first batch of seed didn’t come up. Our tomatoes all seem to be doing fine … one plant has blossoms already (I should have taken a picture of it! ha!) … I wonder if we’ll have tomatoes when we’ll get back.
Since tomorrow is Mother’s Day and we’ll be spending it at DD’s, we’ll be packing today. Thankfully we’ve done this a time or two … even so, I have a list so I don’t forget anything. I’d like to have everything ready to go by this evening so all we have to do on Monday is pack up what we needed to get ready … and then we can hit the road. Usually when we pack up, we leave the next morning … I wonder if we’ll wake up early tomorrow, ready to load up the car and take off? Ha!
Speaking of Mother’s Day, I’d like to wish all of you moms a very blessed Mother’s Day.
