My life is wrapped around the same few activities, so I tend to go fallow with my blogging, thinking that there is only so much you can read again and again.
This time of year I always have gardening that needs to be done. I’m also busy with Scraps on a Mission, making twin-sized and smaller quilts for charity. I love to read, but have put some of that on the back burner, or have shifted to books on disk so that I can listen to books as I garden or sew. I’ve been crocheting squares for Charity Crochet Exchange, which makes “blankets” for groups in need. And, I sleep. Midday naps, sometimes LONG naps, have become a part of our lives.
I have been blogging in my head, but I have just not made the time to post those entries. I find I am more likely to make an entry when Fred is off sailing, and I can structure my day as I please. This morning I weeded, and took pictures for an entry that you’ll see below. This afternoon, I’ll take pictures of some of the things I’m working on in the studio, and do another picture post.
Fred was home with me Monday and Tuesday because it was rainy, and it’s not a lot of fun to sail in the rain. (We won’t discuss lightening at this point…) We drove to Morris to drop off my sewing machine to be cleaned and repaired. I ordered the parts to make a new foot control for my Singer machine. I’ve been waiting more than a year to get that done. We dropped off a chair and a stool that needed to be re-caned and re-rushed. That’s another of those projects that has been waiting forever to be done. We went to Merischka’s for lunch and had their incredibly greasy, garlicky poor boys, and then went to see “Despicable Me 2.” It felt like Saturday, I really enjoyed being with Fred, and I was delighted to get all these time consuming chores done.
This morning, I’m going to see if I can’t tidy up things in the garage. If I move both cars out onto the drive, I should be able to accomplish what I want to do a little faster. With what’s left of the day, I need to grocery shop, work in the studio for a bit, and crochet some more squares. There’s nothing exciting to report, other than I’m satisfied with life. 🙂
