So sad – now all the bars and restaurants are also closed. I haven’t been to the grocery store but I assume it’s still open and still has goods to sell – maybe not TP but other stuff.
This is what I did this morning! With the help of these three kids, Owen, Lucy and Aidan, and their mother of course, we picked up all the sticks in my yard. This is wonderful because bending over is harder this year than last year. Sam and her kids really came to my rescue and after they picked up the sticks, they threw the ball for Hazel until she was simply too tired to run after it again. This is great because now she’s tired and I can sew tonight.
Thanks so so much, Aidan, Lucy, Owen and Samantha! With no school they’ll be out here to drive the golf cart the next nice day we have. Sounds like rain and snow the rest of the week.
Dirty Dozen finishes:
And here’s Harvey – this pattern is available for $10 from Country Threads. Available only until Easter – I wonder if we’ll have Easter services at the rate we’re going.
NEVER, but NEVER underestimate the power and the beauty of sewing squares together.
Hope everybody is still fine – so many people have other serious health problems to deal with. I feel very fortunate that I’m pretty healthy and not likely to get the virus. And I keep forgetting to tell you about my back MRI. I can’t get into the back surgeon until April 21 and who knows if he’ll be seeing patients by then.
My family doctor looked at the MRI last week and said yes, surgery is likely to be recommended – that procedure is called a laminectomy. Frankly my back is not hurting now and I’m trying to be very conservative when it comes to yard work so I won’t cause pain. I can walk all over the yard – do most anything! I hardly realize these are not my own knees! Sweet, huh?
Icky weather is coming to North Iowa the rest of the week – rain and possibly snow. Can’t work outside so I can sew! Aren’t quilters the luckiest people during this time of staying home? No commitments and free time is what we’ve wished for!
Stay healthy, Friends!
