Home from Mayo after a less than perfect start this morning. Rick mistakenly set his alarm for 5:45 instead of 4:45 and when mine went off at 5:15 I shut it off!!! Good grief! I couldn’t get Keeper into the kennel, Telly and Hazel knew we were leaving and were not happy, and the van was low in gas. I completely forgot and since I didn’t drive it to church, it never entered my mind to fill it before we had to leave so early.
Oh, well – Rick’s ankle has broken down somewhat again so it’s a new ointment and back to wrapping the ankle instead of relying on compression socks. We will be returning to Mayo in November but we won’t be able to reschedule the hip surgery until he’s been released from the wound clinic. All in a day’s work, huh?
Becky took care of the dogs and the chores for me – thank goodness! We made our customary stop at McDonalds on the way home – such a shame really – all those great restaurants in Rochester and we always have to eat at McDonalds. Sigh.
I finished binding this quilt on the way home – and took pictures – some quilts just photograph better than others – I love this one!
And as long as I was taking pictures I just had to include this beautiful corn from Farmer Tim.
Just to be clear, this is field corn used in making ethanol and many other industrial corn products. This is NOT sweet corn. The kernels are very hard and very dry and NOT edible.
It’s all about the CORN!
Here are two pictures I saw online that I love! I have no info on either – I just added them to my Instagram page for inspiration.
So many quilts, so little time.
