Summer is flying by
Okay, so much for New Years resolutions - I have gone a whole month without posting. I've been gardening, sewing, painting (a lot) and haven't been spending much time on the computer. Tonight was our usual Tuesday night sewing night, and Shirlee asked me to post pictures of the quilt she just finished quilting for her friend Jackie who lives in Wheatland. (If Jackie is really Jacquie or whatever, I apologize.) It is a one-block wonder, and is gorgeous. I especially love what Jackie did with the border.
Marquerite came by with her new baby, whose name is McDuff. He's a Westmoreland Terrior, and is so mellow and snuggly, he's a doll. She scratched his belly and he was estatic until he fell asleep in the belly rubbing position.
My garden is going well, especially the weeds. I was worried about flood irrigation, never having had any experience with it, but Dave was right (I hate it when that happens) and it works. We have to go up to 5 days at a time without water, but Dave bought me some big poly drums which I have for emergency water, and so far this spring has had more rain than usual.
Today is my daughter Becky's birthday! She's mumble mumble years old, and since I'm only 20, she's not allowed to be mumble mumble years old.
I watched Michael Jackson's funeral thing today, and was moved. I didn't expect to be, I just watched it because I expected good music, but I ended up thinking a lot more of him than I did yesterday. His life must have been really rough.
I promise to blog more. Not that I have an adoring public out there waiting for my wonderful prose, but just because its a self discipline thing - I've been really lazy.
