I have made a little bit of progress on Piper‘s blanket. It is very wide and I just don’t seem to have the crocheting/knitting time I had before so it’s going to take a while. I expected that and it’s fine. Some things are more important.
Mandy picked up this embroidery kit at the Target dollarspot. Piper wants to learn and I’m looking forward to teaching her soon. It is mainly satin stitch so it should be an easy project.
Look at this mess! These are curtains for the living room, patio door, spare bedroom, office, our bedroom and kitchen. They all came about 10:00 last night by Amazon. Mandy is going to help me put them up this weekend since I have no drill to install the curtain rods. They also all have to be washed to get the wrinkles out.
I spent one evening putting Dennis’s desk together. I hope to work on the file cabinet this afternoon.
I thought I would share this picture with you. I made it for Mom right after dad passed away in 1999. It’s one of my favorite crossstitch pieces I’ve done. She loves reading about angels and how they are around and helping us all of the time, although most of the time we are unaware of it.
The visiting nurse will be here in about half an hour so I need to get over to Moms. Monday I had my oil changed and got a grocery pick up order, along with going to the hardware store and stopping at our new credit union. There doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, but I’m hoping things will start to calm down a little bit. I’m amazed at how much I was able to get in my little car that has helped make the house feel like home. I have photos sitting around, my own bedding, towels and toiletries. I have my own dishes, pots and pans and silverware. People are still amazed that it all came in the car with me.
I’m finally able to keep up with your blogs, although sometimes it’s very late in the day before I can comment if mom has an early appointment somewhere. And then yesterday the screw fell out of my glasses when I got dressed. Have you ever tried to find the screw when you can’t wear your glasses? Ha! I couldn’t see anything. So I had to make a trip to the eye doctor to get my glasses repaired. It’s always something isn’t it? I was able to get Mom out of the house though, to ride along with me and afterwards we stopped at Runza and picked up lunch. Have any of you heard of Runza’s? They were invented here in Nebraska and they are delicious. Hamburger, cabbage and onions inside of a bun.
I hope all is well with you and I’ll try to be back here soon. Maybe I’ll have hung curtains to show you!😍
Much love and many blessings,
