It has rained off and in all day but Rick and I pushed on with the porch covers.
If you’re a new blog reader I’ll explain about the porch covers. We had them custom made of very heavy vinyl after we saw Tom and Becky’s porch covers which are very similar. These turn buckles are how they are attached. Rick builds me a little cage to stand in and he drives from section to section.
It took us about 2 hours start to finish and we’re all set till next spring. The covers don’t keep out all the blowing dirt but I can’t imagine what it would be like without them.
The kids insisted I take the bird feeder apart – maybe a mouse was there?
Sheryl told me her mom likes to keep the cards in the envelopes so she’ll know the state it came from. She also received a Country Threads card from our friend Joanne V. who came from Massachusetts to quilt camp several times years ago. She sent Norma the card she bought while here.
These small acts of kindness really touch my heart. Thank you to everyone who sent a card to Norma. Her daughter said Norma had part of her foot amputated last Monday but I do not know the reason. Tomorrow I’ll introduce you to our next card recipient. I know you’ll like her a lot!
World Series Game 1 is tomorrow night – who’s watching besides me?
