Well, not really. LOL It seems that all I did was plug through the week. A little stitching, but not much. Here's an update picture. I've finished the brick and am almost done with the mortar.
The rain helped a lot last week. I cannot believe how much the grass grew! My roses look better and my elderberry bushes almost look normal. Of course, it has been in the high 80's all week, with 90's predicted for next week. Everything will be back to its withered, dusty state in a couple of weeks. Sigh...
I got one more flower from my gladiola bulbs that I put in last spring. I think it's called a "star gladiola", but spring was such a long, long time ago, and I have the memory of a hamster, so that could be the name, or not. LOL
I re-potted one of my succulents and it is doing well this year. It had died back quite a bit, but I took a pair of scissors to the dry parts (LOL) and then threw the pieces onto the other side of the pot.
Perhaps a bit of unorthodox gardening, but it looks like it worked!
The county fair has been going on since Wednesday. Husband and stepson have gone twice, but I stayed home to take care of Dad. I really haven't minded, I've been pretty tired all week and if they go to town, I get to do whatever I want...like go to bed early. LOL We've got tickets for a concert on Sunday, and I've got a caregiver for Dad scheduled, so it will be my big night out.
I've been doing all the weekend chores so my husband can spend time with his son. Tomorrow will be my day to have a girly lunch with a friend. This is the same friend that I went to the quilt show with last month, so we may take a little side trip to a fabric store. Not because I NEED any fabric, but I always WANT more fabric. LOL I think that if I do all my stash acquisition now, I'll have quite an amount set up for retirement. I've got this all figured out...and with what I have now, I will only need to live to 125 years old. LOL
Well, peeps, it's time to finish this up and get Dad and I off to bed. I hope everyone has an amazing weekend. Be kind to one another.
