Whew! I set several goals this weekend and I am amazed to say that I got them ALL done! Let's see, first I made cookies for my husband to take on his mountain/fishing/horseback get-away. Oatmeal raisin are his very favorite.
While I was baking cookies, I also got caught up on my laundry.
I got my blueberry bush planted - it already has blueberries on it! They are really good too. I hope it survives- blueberries are not supposed to grow well in our area - but I love them and the bushes are pretty. I am going to baby this one.
Two yorkies - bathed and groomed and waiting for their treat!
My daughter Michelle and I joined a quilt block on the month club. We worked this weekend on our first block. We didn't have any trouble - and in fact, enjoyed it very much. We got one block made and the pieces cut out for the second one. I see a new hobby beginning! And it was so fun to work together on it. I always hoped at least one of my girls would enjoy crafting as much as I do.
And one very happy Jedi Knight celebrating his 8th birthday! I was so happy to get this costume made - he really wanted it so badly! This is Jeremiah. He has a sister and two twin brothers. They needed some grandparents that are able to be a part of their everyday lives - so we have stepped into that role. It's good practice for when our girls start giving us grandkids! And we love them to pieces.
My husband left on his trip, so of course that is when everything begins to go wrong. Murphy's law right? First the sewer backed up into the bathtub. It eventually drained, but now I am nervous about what to do. I'm not having a good feeling about this. Did I mention my husband is gone? Did I mention he is NOT within cell phone range?
Then one of our sprinker heads blew into a hundred pieces. We are having 100 degree weather (why isn't there a degree symbol on my keyboard?). My lawn needs to be watered. I do not have a clue how to fix/replace this thing. Did I mention my husband is away? Did I mention his is NOT within cell phone range?
He will be home Thursday - I can only wonder what else will happen between now and then!
