I was reminded by a friend (thanks, LadyB) about my basket blocks. I quickly put my hands on that project tub, and I've been working on those. It's definitely a long-term project but I'm not taking this one to The Home with me. I want to use it before then! There were around 128 done when I pulled them. I now have 148 done - out of 291. I'll plug away on these every time I sit down at night. I'm working in increments of 20 so as not to get overwhelmed.
Other than that, I've been doing a lot of work in the yard. Mostly with hired help, but I've been doing what I can with the limitations. I can sit in a chair and lean over and weed. I can rake leaves. I can supervise and give directions ....... ;)
We cut back these azaleas outside the sunroom about three weeks ago. They were way too tall, and I was okay with the fact that they wouldn't bloom this year. Lo and behold, the blooms starting popping out. They're a dark pink and then fade to a lovely pale pink as the bloom ages. I guess they just needed a haircut!
Penny is doing great. She loves going outside and chasing squirrels and lizards. The birds, however, drive her nuts. There are one or two birds that love to taunt her by swooping low and squawking loudly. She immediately hits the dirt, and then when they're past her, she jumps up and acts real brave. I love my weenie dog!
I plan on blogging more regularly just as soon as a couple of projects are finished up around the homestead. I'll have the extra time to do what I want to do - no yard projects, no physical therapy, just me and my sewing machine!
