Dad seems a bit more calm and responsive when it's just me and him. Not sure why. Maybe because I have a quieter voice? My husband can be loud! He says he talks loud because Dad can't hear him, but sometimes, I think Dad chooses to not hear him. LOL In the past three days, I've gotten two nods from him. Makes me happy...
I've done a bit of stitching, a bit of gardening.
I've got a tiny more done on Cherry Hollow Farm...
I feel like I'm moving at a snail's pace on this project. LOL
Then, I worked out in the garden...First, here are some blooms, well almost blooms, from the gladiolas that I planted in the spring. I go out every day to check. I know with the heat here in California, they will not last more than a couple of days. The fuchsia is very bright, the lavender more muted. I will get some better pictures when they open up a more.
Found these lavender plants half off at one of the home supply places...Forgot to plant them on Saturday (had a squirrel moment!), remembered them on Wednesday, gave them some water just in time, and planted them last night.
I like the silvery color of the leaves. I do a lot of plants in pots. My dog has a close, personal relationship with my flower beds. Since he's 95 pounds, not much in the flower bed makes it though one of his naps!
I have a trip planned tomorrow to the Seven Sisters Quilt Show in San Luis Obispo. I've went the last two years and love looking at the quilts. There are so many talented people in the world and I am thankful that they share. I say I quilt, but it's more like I "piece". These quilts are works of art. Since I've got a caregiver for Dad tomorrow, I will have three hours to ooooohhhh and aaaaahhhh over the quilts and then have lunch with a dear friend. She lost her husband six months ago and this is the first chance we had to get together. I've missed her and look forward to some girl time.
Okay, peeps, off to finish my dad chores and stitch for a while.
Thank you to all that take the time to visit and keep up with my ramblings. I started this blog for myself, but it is so nice to "meet" others out in the world. I love to look at everyone's gardens and stitching. We are more alike than we are different.
Be kind to one another.
