Most of the clothes are washed and folded. The dishes will be conquered. Gordon is fantastic about sharing house duties like that. Some weeks he does all of the dishes and clothes.
Most of the dogs have had baths in the last couple of days. The rest we will get this weekend. Gordon sprayed the back yard with malathion this weekend, and Unc has logged many miles on the riding lawn mower.
We are trying hard to survive the summer without having to put chemicals directly on the dogs. We're using tea tree essential oil, lavender essential oil and other herbal ingredients in a number of home-made rinses.
The Mississippi Steam Bath season has begun, and even the ants have tried to to all move into the buildings. Truly, you walk outside, and it is as if you walked into a steam bath.
Monday was the visit to the Glaucoma Specialist. Good news. Not raging glaucoma. Pressure is up. Medicine from here on out to keep the pressure down. Family history of glaucoma, so I knew this would develop one day. I'm just so thankful for those broken glasses that led to the discovery of the jumped up pressure.
Thankful that the week as a blind zombie is past. There were other business disappointments or complications during that blind week that I'd rather not remember, but they were all part of life's journey for Gordon and me. Another pop quiz in our continuing education as humans.
Now, because of one of those business disappointments, Gordon and I are facing an impossible deadline for the first of July. All we can do is just keep our heads down and push, push, push on porcelain. Sharing details would get me down, so I'll share details another time.
Had some good time Monday waiting in the doctor's office to work on this never ending block of Botanika by Robyn Pandolph. At least I'm over half finished finally. I really like the mindless applique of these endless leaves. I don't have to think.
This third picture was taken February 4th, so apparently I started this block back in January. Five months so far for one little quilt block! Gee, that is lame!
Here is where I asked for your input on how I should put Botanika together with photos of various options.
My quilting bug has not released its grip on me. We've just had no extra time this year to do much sewing.
I actually did a little bit of sewing on the sewing machine this week when I needed a few minutes of therapy.
Somehow that led to a reorganization of the whole room which is in progress and will continue for a bit.
Gordon will never understand how that happens...Wife sits down to sewing machine, and in five minutes, hubby is being asked to move furniture around the room. Yep, I'll share a funny story about that soon.
Gotta tell you about Soldiers Angels and us "adopting" a soldier to whom to send letters and care packages. Soon, I promise. Yep, already stumbled into some humorous little tidbits with that.
Fold a load of clothes then back to work on porcelain. Maybe I will be able to applique another leaf sometime today.
Hey, life in the exciting, fast lane! NOT! But, I would not trade it for any other life I've ever observed!
