Tomorrow is the day – anyone who can make it to Rochester tomorrow for the quilt show should join us in the food court at 1:00 for a “board meeting”. Bring your ideas for blog posts, activities and tell me what you like and what the problems might be. I’m anxious to meet all of you who can make it. Kathy with the llamas was kind enough to let me park at her house and her husband Jerry will drop us at the front door. There is lots of construction in downtown Rochester which I won’t have to deal with. Thank you, Kathy and Jerry! I promise to take lots of pictures for you.
Monday was my day to tackle the helicopters – especially those on the roof that were piling up in the valleys which could damage the roof in time. Rick wasn’t home but I called Becky and told her to call me if she didn’t hear from me by 2:00. I wore my most sturdy shoes and knee supports on both legs. I took the blower up with a 100 ft. cord and cleaned the roof off, hopefully for the summer.
This is what the mess looked like on the ground – piles and piles of helicopters.
Once on the ground they had to be loaded up and carted away. Thank God for the Workhorse!
After I dumped them I checked the garden which is very lumpy this year because it was tilled too wet.
The peas, radishes and pumpkins are up and the tomatoes are looking good!
Down at the barn the chickens are digging holes in the soft dirt so they can “dust”. They “dust” to stay clean just like a cat who grooms themselves.
I’m so glad you liked the Susannah story. I have so many stories about her. I took this picture of her, had it blown up to poster size and framed. It hangs in my kitchen and I hope someone treasures it when I’m gone.
We have several readers on our get well list:
We all send our best wishes for speedy recoveries!
Guess what I did last night! I cut out Background Music from Susan Ache’s book Countdown to Christmas and can’t wait to start sewing. I’m going to make it big enough to fit my red loveseat.
I also cut up some more scraps and found more UFO’s! I will have more than 12, I’m afraid! Maybe some of the easy ones could get done before July 1 – if you’re playing the Dirty Dozen game, have you gathered them up and numbered them? I’d better do that today before I bring home more from the quilt show tomorrow. Haha! I know I’ll find something I just have to have.
Today is Novel Idea held at the library for those who can come. Right now I’m reading John Grisham’s Reckoning. Connie is off to join friends at the Kansas City quilt show and we’ll both have photos to show you in the upcoming blog posts.
See you tomorrow at 1:00 in the food court!
