Still no sewing here.
I talked to Kelli and told her that Georgia will get a baby quilt but it will be awhile. I feel bad about not having it done but Kelli was great about it.
I would love to say that I was busy cross stitching but I really haven’t done much of that either.
The color isn’t right in the photo…but here’s my little progress. I previously had the two bottom lines stitched but nothing else. This was Friday night stitching. I stayed up past my bedtime to get it done.
I had been hoping to get up early two days a week and sew but honestly, I just can’t do it. I’m so whooped.
I had some time on Saturday but that was sucked up by spring lawn work. It was such a beautiful day. Kramer was trying to do some outside things and I didn’t want him outside by himself. Plus…my flowers needed attention.
Then I got the cleaning bug and this happened…YES. I cleaned the refrigerator. I cleaned a lot of the kitchen too….Including the top of the refrigerator, a couple windows got washed, the cupboard fronts did too. I wish I would have an entire week just to clean and get through most everything.
I spent all of Sunday, besides church, cleaning-the deep cleaning, spring cleaning kind…that is until I got sidetracked. Yep. Pies two weeks in a row. More than anything I’m clinging to domestic life.
When I make pie I’ve started making little hand pies with the extra dough from the crust. I never used to do that and now, I love it. The hand pies are cherry…the pies, fresh blueberry.
Everyone talks about dream jobs or what they would do if they won the lottery. Seriously, I’d love nothing more than staying home and taking care of the house and making wonderful food all the time….of course quilting and stitching and likely blogging would still be things I’d do. Domestic life is my favorite.
We get so much company and extra people are here that I do a lot more cooking than I’ve done in the recent past. I also feel bad when Kelli comes over and helps that she’s giving up her time so I often send some food home with her. I’m sure some pie will go home to Jason. It makes me feel better.
Today begins week #3 of chemo and radiation for Kramer. I’m the driver today. We are leaving at 5:30am. We’ll likely get back at about 5pm. Mondays are long days. I’ll spend most of my time stitching when I can.
