Things were crazy busy this last week. But since most of the busy-ness involved DD and my Ts, I’m definitely not complaining.
And that was the case Tuesday. DD and the Ts were out and about that morning and picked up The Lego Movie DVD … and invited me to a “private screening” of the new movie. My decision was a no brainer … that fabric would still be there on Wednesday. We had an early dinner and headed out to that night’s swim meet. And we actually got in a meet! The first one this year. T#3 was really at the top of his “game” and finished one of his heats considerably ahead of the rest of the swimmers. It was so cute to see him look around and realize that there were no other swimmers at the end of the pool … he used his finger to count out each of the other 5 swimmers and when he’d counted them all, he raised his arms in celebration. His face was jubilant when he ran over to tell me that he won his heat.
After taking my dad to his ophthalmologist appointment and then back home, I had my afternoon and evening free …. and I finished cutting the fabric for retreat. I discovered that I was short some fabric for my pineapple quilt (especially the light fabric), so I ordered more. I still need to iron and cut the border fabrics for DD’s chevron … I don’t have anything on the agenda for the weekend (so far, anyway!), so I think that will be on my to-do list for Saturday. It shouldn’t take too long, thanks to my GO … I’m hoping to be able to finish up stitching the last 3 rows of DD’s chevron quilt … and start piecing together the rows. I can’t wait to see some rows on my design floor.
DH and I got out early (or so we thought) Thursday morning to get in some much-needed yard work … we had hoped to get out there before it got too hot, but it has gotten so hot and humid that we would have had to have been out there at sunrise in order to avoid the heat.
We had the 2 littlest Ts here Friday … Mama was busy with T#2’s friend birthday party (her birthday was May 29, but between swim practice/meets and other summertime commitments, this was the only day all her her friends were available). Thanks to a late night Thursday evening (the meet was 45 minutes away), Nana and Papa and the 2 littles were all pretty tired … we all needed some nap/quiet time after lunch.
Did you all know that today is World-wide Quilt in Public Day? Well, the phrase “world-wide” might be a bit of a stretch since the “celebration” seems to be confined to Europe, but still …
I see a road trip in my future. Jacksonville is not quite 2 hours from us, so while it’s certainly a do-able trip … and if I promise DH that we’ll stop at Five Guys for dinner on our way home, I suspect that he can be persuaded to go with.
I’m still waiting for my new glasses to come in … I am getting tired of having to take off my glasses in order to use my iPhone. Hopefully they’ll be in on Monday.
Hope you all have a wonderful weekend planned!
