I am having trouble wrapping my brain around the fact that it’s August already! It feels like it should just be May … could it be that the almost spring-like weather we’ve been enjoying contributes to the feeling that we’re still in late spring? All I know is that time is flying by!
One thing that reminds me that it’s summer, not spring, is this:
I know you don’t get a very good idea of the size of this tomato from the photo … it’s 6” across and weighs 1.5 lbs. It’ll be sliced and on my ham sandwich at lunch!
I spent most all morning yesterday on the phone. After a lot of discussion, my ISP said that because I couldn’t send emails only on my mobile devices, it must be an Apple problem. I called Apple who said that because it occurred on both devices and only for my primary email account (my blog account worked fine), it was an ISP problem. By that point, I was done dealing with it. I decided that I’d create another email account and see if it would work … if not, I’d use my gmail.com account. And sure enough, the new email account works just fine. I spent an hour or so changing my email address on as many places as I could think … I’m sure I’ll have to continue to make changes, but I got the important changes made. I can make the others over time … since I continue to receive emails – just can’t send emails – I’m not going to sweat it too much. Technology is wonderful … until something doesn’t work right … trying to get some help can be difficult!
After lunch, I spent the rest of my day quilting. I’m making progress … I’m down to the outer 4 blocks all the way around. Since my hoop will allow me to quilt 4 blocks at a time, I’m getting close to being done with the blocks … then it’ll be time to quilt the border. I even sat down after dinner to do a little quilting … I used to quilt all day and most of the evening, but lately, I’ve gotten out of the habit to pick back up my quilting after dinner. Last night I “forced” myself to pick up the hoop … and I got in over an hour of additional quilting time. I don’t know why I’d “convinced” myself that I wasn’t in the mood to quilt after dinner?? I’m so glad that I’ve gotten myself back into that habit!
And speaking of quilting, that’s how I plan to spend my day … whatever you choose to do, I hope you have a fabulous Friday!
