That does it! I'm going to get a little Weber BBQ pit this weekend. When I opened the door tonight to walk Daisy, several neighbors were grilling, and now I am SO hungry! I've got a bunch of steaks in the freezer. No excuse not to just do it!
Today was busy at work. My boss, the CEO, doesn't do computers, but I told him that I can send emails for him. So he writes them out in longhand, and I type them and send them. Of course, now he's constantly in my office wanting to know if anyone has answered him yet. I think I've created a monster!
His grandchildren are visiting from Wisconsin. Grace will be five in August. We have the same birthday. And Will just turned two. Grace is going to be designing her first quilt this week. I cut some muslin and sewed it together, packaged up some colored squares, and wrote her a "pattern" on how to lay the squares out on the muslin. Her mother and grandmother are going to help her pin the squares to the muslin so they won't fall off before I can sew them together. We'll see how this project turns out - but she's real excited about making her first quilt! I'm going over on Saturday and I'm sure she'll have the design all finished. Then the work begins! LOL!
This little patriotic top was another wheelchair quilt for the Veterans Hosp. in Atlanta. I won the blocks in a little lotto our online group had. The top was mailed to Judy and she quilted it, and the ladies at the RiM retreat two years ago put bindings on a bunch of these quilts.
My gratitude today is the nice market near the house. It wasn't too many years ago that our ancestors had to grow it, shoot it or catch it to have dinner!
