This n That Thursday
Yikes, it’s “only” Thursday … I had typed in a title suitable for a Friday, only to suddenly remember that it’s Thursday. Last week I was a day ahead … this week I’m a day behind. Crazy. What’s even crazier is that there are only 4 more days left in June!
We had three Ts yesterday … Mama has decided that she’d like to make Wednesdays one-on-one days this summer, and T#1 got to spend the inaugural one-on-one day with Mama. I know that they had a great time, but I’d be hard pressed to imagine that it would have been more fun than we had here. The Ts have been back into Legos lately, including T#4 (time to buy another box of “girly” Legos). Today’s building resulted in a little Lego playground (see the slide over to the left? … there’s also a seesaw, a sandbox, monkey bars and more).I love that they play with Legos … a perfect combination of fun and creativity.
Before they came over, I managed a walkabout through the yard. Our summer flowering plants are starting to bloom. Look! My hydrangea is starting to bloom … although so far, there’s just the single bloom. But at least there’s a bloom … we had none at all last summer.
And I found this on Facebook:I don’t know about you all, but it’s oh so true for me! We’re about 2 1/2 months from getting some Vitamin Sea … we cannot wait. And we discovered that the people renting the condo after us won’t be checking in until Sunday … which means there’s an open day available … I think we need to add an extra day to our stay! I guess I shouldn’t complain about time flying by … I’m really anxious for September to get here so we can go get some Vitamin Sea! Of course, that’ll be when I’m hoping that time will sloooooow down!
There’s nothing on today’s agenda until tonight’s swim meet … that means I should have time to spend in the sewing room. We’ll see how many rows I can get pieced together … hopefully I’ll have enough done to get a good feel on how this quilt is going to come together. Of course, I’ll share my progress with you all.
At some point in the next few days I’m going to need to cut strips of that “lost” fabric so I can be finished kitting up projects for my retreat … it’s just over 2 weeks away. Speaking of retreat, my new small folding ironing table arrived yesterday … not only will it be awesome for retreats (my guild is going to hold one in September) but it will be perfect for my small sewing space here at home as well!Previously I’ve had to go to the laundry room and drag out the ironing board … our laundry room is small (we downsized when we moved here), so getting the ironing board was a bit of a hassle. Then I’d have to put the ironing board away when I was done as there really wasn’t enough room for it in the sewing room. My new little table will fold up easily and fit in the closet right there in my sewing room. Icing on the cake: the medium blue ticking that was used to make the top!
Have a spectacular day!
