More Tuesday Trivialities
It sure feels good to be back home and back into our normal routine. Actually, it’s a fairly new routine because DD is done with her classes for summer semester, so I’m not on Nana Duty Monday-Tuesday-Wednesday. Not that I won’t be called to Nana Duty … in fact, I’ll be watching the kiddos tomorrow while DD visits her former step mom. And I’ll be watching our Little Miss while her Mama and older siblings go to Six Flags with friends on Thursday. So I won’t have to go too long between times spent with my grands.
DH and I had a nice long chat on our way home Sunday about our trip along the Blue Ridge Parkway. While his focus was to drive the entire Parkway, he realizes now that the trip could have been so much more enjoyable had we taken the time to see some of the wonderful sights along the way.
When we travel to new places, we always try to find a jigsaw puzzle as a souvenir of our visit. I broke open the puzzle yesterday morning and here’s what I was able to accomplish in an hour or two.It isn’t too difficult a puzzle to work, which is just as well as there is a lot of sky and ground that are always tougher areas to put together. This is a view of the Linn Cove Viaduct, one of the highlights of our trip.
I also finished up the BOM for my hand quilting Facebook group. Friday is the day we can reveal this month’s blocks, so I’ll share here once I’ve shared on Facebook. This month’s block included a first for me, and all in all, I’m pleased with how it turned out.
DH suggested that we drive over to Homestead Hearth since there’s nothing on our calendar today. I think that I shocked him when I declined … I’m just not up for getting back in the car to drive 2.5+ hours (one way) – even for fabric! I know, it shocked even me. Perhaps Friday or some day next week. I am anxious to get the fabric, but I certainly don’t need it today … later this week or earlier next week will be more than soon enough. We’ve still got a little over a month before we head to Hilton Head, so I’ve got ample time to get the fabric cut for hexies.
Summer has returned – with a vengeance! We’re back in the mid 90s with heat indices well over 100. I think it’ll be a good day to stay inside, crank up the A/C, work a little on our puzzle, and do some quilting.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
