I expect things to be quiet around the blog for a few weeks. Life is busy and full and crazy at times and I'm living it. I'm driving my kids around town and watching swim practices and missing their golf for the second time in two weeks. We've been hanging out with good friends, drinking beer and chasing fire flies. I brought the sewing machine downstairs because it is too flipping hot on the third floor even with the AC. And while I am happy stitching away, it's the secret kind of sewing which is fun and not fun at the same time. What I'd really like to do is start a new quilt and see it through to the end. I did get everything put back in the kitchen, but the house is still messy and there are huge piles of laundry mocking me at every turn. I have found that plying my kids with the promise of a playdate gets them to clean their rooms so there's that. I have a very large basket of peaches that needs dealing with. The garden is sprouting weeds and vegetables that need to be harvested. We did eat what was left of the peas on Saturday night, straight out of the colander before they even made their way in the house. Kate even liked them and so maybe raw peas taste better to her than cooked ones? Who knows? And we might be getting a dog. Scratch that. We are getting a dog. Her name is Hazel. We met her tonight and she is wonderful. Then there are those martini glasses. Keep or give away? I'm on the fence, but I did put them away so I guess it's keep for now.
So yeah, quiet on the blog means never a dull moment around here. I'm good with that. See you soon.
