Sweltering 92 Degrees!
So what happened to Spring? I feel like we are in the middle of August...totally wilted...and all worn out with hot weather! Is this a portent of what the Summer will bring? Sweltering hot? No rain? Brown, dead grass (what grass?? LOL), a tan landscape for the next 3 months? I shouldn't be complaining, I know, even tho we are so far below on our rainfall. There are several more of my neighboring Southern states that are in even worse shape than we are here in Tennessee. But it is really reaching critical mass here too insofar as the lack of rainfall is concerned.
So, if it's too hot to be outside, one would naturally ask if I've been in the air-conditioned sewing room, switching obsessions from outside to quilting ROFL, but I would have to tell you NO. :( Where did my sewing muse go? She seems to have totally deserted me. I did reverse sew that one border on that tablerunner way-back-when, and I haven't even quilted it. I did also work just a TAD on my Kim Diehl block, which is so close to being finished that I should just sit right down now and finish it up so I could at least start the third block. :( :) And just because we have guests coming on Friday, that's no reason to rush around slinging dust, and books, and magazines, and accumulated mess, now is it? LOL Definitely not a good reason to rush out to the grocery store (after all, the son's female friend is a vegetarian---hey, Rabbit Stitchings, what does one feed a vegetarian??? :D) and there's not even two pieces of bread in the house for a sandwich. Nah, not good enough reasons for all of that. So maybe I WILL just go finish that one block for now.
I am so sorry to have been such a laggart about my blog this month. I make promises to myself to be more religious about posting, and what do I do???? Desert it just like it did my quilting!! :D I'm going now to see if I can unearth that block. The photos are Homer Kitty having a snooze in the shade and pea gravel (go figure), my herb bed which I'm working on enlarging, and let me tell you that little picture does NOT do justice to how much dirt I moved!!!, and my little sweetheart, Badger. I'm going to unearth more photos eventually of my "boys" so I can share some of Dewey too. :D Hope every one is well and enjoying all of your most favorite things as we swing into Summer.
