Last weekend was Prom Weekend locally, so of course Facebook was inundated with proud parents' prom photos. I don't know about your area, but it seems that around here the prom dress style that's popular this spring features a bare midriff and a deep slit in the skirt. :-o Call me old fashioned, but seriously? These are high school girls, people!
I started piecing together rows on my tumbler quilt this weekend ... I have 3 rows together. I really expected to have more done, but oops, I wasn't thinking when I pieced the rows. I started each row with a neutral tumbler and alternated between the neutral and a print. It didn't take me long to realize my error ... if I was going to have the rows alternate, I needed to alternate the tumbler placement in my rows. So as I add another row to the flimsie, I have to unstitch one tumbler and reposition it. Ugh! Here's my progress so far.
You can see here that my tumblers don't have the 90-degree corners that an earlier photo seemed to show. I'll be spending a good chunk of today in the sewing room, so I hope to have even more progress next time.
My sleep is still out of whack ... but I'm having more good nights of sleep than I had been having, so I guess that's an upside to this dilemma. I still plan to mention my sleep issues with the oncology nurse tomorrow.
My Blues managed to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat yesterday. They frittered away a 3-1 lead but managed to score in OT to win. The victory was even sweeter because I watched it with my Ts. DD and DSIL were given tickets to the baseball game that afternoon, so DH and I "watched" the Ts while their mama and daddy were gone. We really didn't need to watch them, as T#1 is 14 and quite capable of caring for his siblings ... I think their mama just used their outing as an excuse for me to spend more time with my precious Ts. ;-)
Our delightful weather is a thing of the past. It's been overcast and chilly (aka cold as far as I'm concerned) for several days with no relief in sight. I'm ready for the warmer temps to return! If I'm going to get out for a walk today, I'll have to bundle up. Ha!
DH has put in our garden ... since I ought to stay out of dirt during chemo, the garden is his responsibility this year. He's planted green beans (after the troubles we had with green beans the last two summers, I would have given up on green beans ... but since he's doing the work, he gets to choose), red leaf and green leaf lettuce, and several tomato plants (8 plants for 2 people?). I'm hoping to persuade him to add a cucumber plant or two. Thankfully even though DH is doing all the work, he'll be sharing the fruits of his labor with me ... and I'm already drooling in anticipation of a BLT.
We've been working on a puzzle that a dear friend sent me ... it's quite the challenge but we're up for the challenge! After all, there's no deadline for completion. ;-)
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
