Sam brought her preschool class to visit the quilt shop today because they’re studying the letter Q. Then we walked on the wilderness trail to the garden. The kids loved Hazel and Hazel loved the kids!
We also visited the barnyard and looked for eggs.
The visit ended with a game of miniature golf.
See the bucket of soapy water – the kids washed their hands after touching everything in the barn!
FYI – the Orkin supervisor was here to inspect the work done in April – all was as it should be. They checked the bait traps in the barn, too, especially where it smelled like dead rodents and sure enough there was a dead rat in the bait trap. They warned me again that this will not be a quick fix which I of course hated to hear. But it is what it is and Orkin knows what they’re doing.
I enjoyed one nice warm day on the porch – today it’s just 60 degrees – too cold for the porch so I’ll sew instead. I found two more projects that need finishing so instead of starting something new I’ll have to work on a UFO. For those wondering if we’ll do the Dirty Dozen again starting July 1, YES! We definitely will start again so be looking for those 12 projects to number 1-12.
We unexpectedly have a funeral at our church Monday – Patty lived at Concord Care and every time we played there she came to the dining room to listen.
Here are 3 reader quilts – I haven’t gotten many pictures lately and for those trying to post your own pictures in the blog comments section, you can’t. How could I control content if nearly 4000 readers started posting hundreds of pictures? The blog would crash for sure. Send your quilt photos to my email – found in the blog home page.
Did I tell you Hazel got rat #46 the other day? The one that Orkin found in the trap was #45. Now that doesn’t mean Hazel killed 46 rats because I got some of them in the electric trap which I’m going to start using again if I can get it to work with new batteries.
Do any of you follow Louisa Enright’s blog? She lost her little dog named AC Slater two days ago – I know she is grief stricken right now as he was only 4 years old and died of complications of Lyme Disease. I hate that she lost him so young and so very loved.
I know as soon as I hit “publish” I’ll think of something else to tell you but for now I’ll head to my sewing room to work on those UFOs.
