We have returned from vacation. And, spent two days getting things back in order so that real life can begin again.
Here’s the picture we took on the last night, after dinner at Ermilio’s, Arkansas’ number 1 Italian restaurant.
We took a walk around the pond that night and Sydney fed the horses carrots that I always make sure we have leftover.
We packed everything up and left at 5:45am and were home at 3:30pm.
Days since have been busy and I’ve gotten very behind reading blogs. There was a lot of cleaning and moving things around and I’m suddenly feeling a renewed interest in cooking, so stuff needed to be done in the kitchen to make that more pleasant.
I’ve pulled everything out for quilting class this Saturday. I’m teaching again. Fortunately, even though I couldn’t remember where I’d put everything, it turned up quickly.
Here is the Pond Mountain quilt with progress so far.
All of the ditch work is done and the center has the background quilting. I have no idea when I’ll have a chance to get that loaded back in the machine. First is finishing the quilts for the show.
Loved this little place that we saw on the last day. Couldn’t live there because it looks like it is just two rooms, but wouldn’t it make a lovely quilt shop!
I think we all have the vacation’s over blues. The kid has been especially trying and I haven’t been in a very indulgent mood. But, this is all part of the daily grind and moving from one thing to the next. We all go through it and while it doesn’t feel very nice, it is the way things are and we are resigned to it.
Now if I could just get this insect bite to heal up. It’s in a very personal place and is likely a chigger or “redbug”…or maybe a spider. Who knows. We were in the rough. But, where it is, I cannot scratch all day.
Everybody have a good Monday. Lane
