Okay, so it’s that time of reflection around here. Mostly because it’s too dad-blamed hot to do much of anything else. So, I’ve been looking around for things to look forward to. It’s supposed to promote a long and happy life.
I wish I had a picture of the school. I’m looking forward to that. And the structure that it brings to our lives. Of course, I won’t like having to take over my own chores again.
Growing my own pickles. Even if I’m having to pollinate the cucumbers myself because it’s too hot for bugs. Anybody have a favorite sweet pickle recipe that only makes a couple of quarts? Mine takes a bushel of cukes and I can’t possibly pollinate fast enough for that.
Filling these pots. We’re going to more nurseries this weekend with friends and I hope to get some heat loving fall flowers. Any suggestions from my fellow drought dwellers? I need a blue for hte matching vintage looking pots to go near our front door.
Making these into a quilt. They hang in the sewing room and I see them so much that I don’t see them anymore. But, once in a while, I walk up on them and look at them closely and look forward to when they are quilts and not just blocks on the wall.
Sewing strips to blocks.
This was going a lot faster when I was making the background blocks.
Glad I was smart enough to only make a few and then catch up on the 25 patches. Background blocks will give me some breaks between sewing little squares into rows.
Last night, for the first time in many months, after my chores were done I didn’t baste or assemble hexies. It was very liberating. I played with my phone instead. And, I played and played and played until past bedtime.
I can see the attraction.
I hope you’re looking forward to things, too.
Be well and have a great Thursday. Lane
