Happy afternoon from the rancho. Yep. Afternoon. I had lots of chores this morning and doctor's appointments for DH tomorrow...so...here I am!
I think that I may be traveling to Iowa in a few weeks. I've looked at my schedule, son has looked at his, and it seems that June it will be. He is so busy. He works all the weekends, plus he's teaching a class later this month. If I want to see him before Christmas, I need to go to now!! I offered to head out in September, but he's teaching full time then and would have limited time to visit. June is not my favorite month. The humidity is pretty high and it may rain a bit. But it's 90 degrees here today so I guess weather is weather. LOL
I've been feeling very out of sorts lately. I know it's because of a year and a half at home, but boy, some mornings are tough! I felt like this when I was caring for my dad. It seemed that I was stuck in the same day. Over and over and over. Anyone who's seen the movie Groundhog knows exactly what I'm saying. LOL
I finally got to hug my Saturday walking buddy. It is so nice to be vaccinated and have friends that are the same. I really missed hugs. I'm still a bit hesitant about throwing away the masks. I must admit that not having colds or the flu last year was a nice side effect of wearing a mask. A band that I really like is coming to a city about thirty miles from our house. It's not until December...but it's inside. I'm thinking no. We have an outside music venue about three miles from our house and I would go there in a heartbeat. But inside? With people? Hmmmm. Not ready.
I'm slowly working on Cherry Hill. Not even enough to post. Also stitched a bit on Christmastide from Threadwork Primitives. I had to laugh at my snow. The color as charted is Oatmeal. Somehow I managed to choose the very whitest for the roofs and the somewhat brown-tinged for the snow on the ground. Nope. That's just ugly. LOL So pulled the ground snow out, checked the skein and choose only the whitest threads. I could have pulled a different thread but I was already committed. I love these little houses.
In case you all think that I'm all the fun...here is a project that I did for my DH. It is a filter bag for one of his outside tools. He asked me to sew the old one. After twenty years the fabric was shredding in my hands. I had some canvas and lined it with flannel. I'm proud of myself. Not particularly cute, but it does the job. LOL
My geraniums are happy!
