Rick’s hip replacement surgery was cancelled yesterday afternoon after finally reaching the surgeon’s office to inform him of the small break in skin on his ankle. We will now need to return to the Mayo Wound Clinic. With winter weather coming up I am worried about the drive although we made it every month last winter so I’m going to quit worrying. Thank goodness Becky is available to come and stay with the dogs when we need to be gone. I find it impossible to go away for that long and leave the dogs alone – any other pet sitters out there? Must be able to do barn chores, too.
I’ve been putting so many things on hold because of Rick’s surgery and now my calendar is pretty much empty for the next two weeks. I hope to tackle these one by one. Today my fence guy is coming to fix that part of the fence that the tree fell on. Do you remember Armando who has Martinez Fence Co? He is Telly’s original owner and I can’t wait to see their reunion – Telly has remembered him in the past and I know she will today, too.
Here’s what’s happening across the road in Farmer Tim’s field – it goes really fast actually and all of this happened in one afternoon.
So after the field is cleared a few ears are missed especially on the turns. Tim invited me to help myself to some squirrel corn so I walked a few rows and did really well.
In very little time I had this much corn but the wind got cold and I gave up till this afternoon when I’ll go back. I take my old golf cart to haul the heavy bags back to the garage. Here’s my haul.
If you’ve ever priced squirrel corn at Walmart you know I have a small fortune here – haha!!
While these pictures are still on my camera roll I’m going to post them. These are quilts I’ve seen online that I love and would consider drafting and making.
Some of these might have been reader quilts that I saved as possible starts. As you see all of these quilts are pretty easy and I always want to enjoy what I’m working on without stress.
What are you going to sew today?
