Better Late . . .

Better Late . . .

If you read this space from time to time, you’ll know that I said we had a new post about this time last month. The only problem was that I apparently forgot to hit “publish.” It’s up there now, but it’s not as if you missed a reel of a mystery movie. My daughter-in-law let me know about it, but I was close enough to scheduled back surgery that fixing it wasn’t at the top of my priority list. Now that the surgery is two weeks in my rearview mirror, I’m feeling much better and more myself.

We’ve had both lots of rain this month and many lovely, sunny days. I have crocus blooming and lots of tulips coming up. Currently, we’re having the first snow of the season. The weather report said it should start about 3 pm. I decided to hit the grocery store about 1 pm and I’m so glad I didn’t wait as it was starting to snow when I got home at 1:30. Mother Nature keeps her own timetable and we mortals are well advised to just work around it.

The fluffy stuff around the flowers is California poppies. I doubt the snow will affect any of it very much.

I haven’t gotten a great deal of quilting done the last few weeks, which frustrates the heck out of me, but I managed a birthday postcard for my granddaughter who just turned one.

The thing about having to take it really easy (and having little energy) the last two weeks is that regular chores don’t really get done. Dust still comes and floors need mopping and email needs dumping. It’s going to take a while to get caught up, especially since housework will always take a back seat to quilting and any other artsy craftsy thing I can think up. I probably don’t have to mention that I can think up quite a lot..

The snow has built up enough (like maybe ⅜ of an inch) that kids are outside playing in it. We don’t get snow at this elevation very often so it doesn’t take much to get them out making snowballs. Wild Bill is going nuts knowing that someone’s having fun without him.

I wish I had more to share. About all I can say is that with about 200 channels, daytime TV is still pretty awful. So I’m off to make up with my sewing machine.

PS

For some reason, the pictures on the site turned long and skinny. Hope I figure out the problem while I’m young.
