This and That

Dearest Reader,

Did you miss me?

... Sorry, I couldn't resist the reference to Lady Whistledown in Brigerton.

The yard sale was as successful as I thought it would be. It was a very hot day, the temperature reached 90 by mid afternoon. By that time the sale was over for the day. I was so hot I packed up what was left, went inside and turned on the A/C. The next day was very hot as well, and after sitting out there for two hours with no traffic, I packed it in. I'd made over $150 so the weekend was a success.

Once inside, I turned on the A/C, lay on the couch and read a book. I was zonked. I'd been very busy with the bathroom renovation, Julie's visit and the yard sale, so for the last week I just tried to catch up on my rest. I spent a lot of time reading.

I didn't do any sewing, but I did buy this fabric for the back of my black scrap slab triangle quilt.

The shower doors finally arrived. This is actually the SECOND set. It's a long story, not worth the time or space it would take to tell it. It involved a lot of frustration, however, and patience.

My granddaughter and I will be baking cookies later. I've set out all the ingredients so I'll be ready whenever she is.

It's been a rough and busy first part of the year, and I'm still trying to regroup and catch my breath. I've been really tired, so tired I found myself having small dizzy spells. I've been trying to rest and not overdo, and catch up on sleep, and that has made a big difference (no more dizzy spells), but I might not get back in the studio for another week or so.

It has been a rough year for you. I hope you have a good primary doctor and have had or will have complete physical. When things are tough, the body responds and not always in a way we know how to recognize. Take care of your physical health as it the capital for what we want to do and accomplish.

Take care of yourself. Summer is a good time for a nice glass of iced tea and a good book. :)

There is a season for everything. You've been through several already this year that were emotionally and physically demanding. Now it's time for a season of rest.

Glad your yard sale went well. I have done one and swear never again! Now if I lived close I'd snatched up that red pitcher!

You have had a rough 2022 so far. Take the time to tend to you; to refresh and recharge. Nothing is more important than your health!!!! And making cookies with your granddaughter!!!
