Friday Musings

Another early morning wake up for me...this morning it was all Jack the Cat. If at any point in the early morning, I roll over or move that is an invitation for Jack the Cat to pounce or paw my face. I'm loving having the kitties, but I can't wait till they grow out of the "kitten" stage.

Yesterday was a non-stop day from my early morning wake up till hitting the hay at 11.

I did manage to open and spread 17 bags of mulch...two pallets left and while it sounds like a lot the end results is well worth it.

I also had some help out in the yard...

But I'm not sure grabbing empty mulch bags and running through the yard really qualifies him for the job.

After a run through the shower, I headed to Culpeper for some retail therapy and lunch with a friend. The lunch was successful but shopping not so much, why is it so hard to find cute summer tops in July? I spent 14 years in retail, and I get that you need to move on to the next season when the product arrives, but for those of us that live in the season, we still need to shop.

After a quick dinner and watching the Washington Nationals lose to the Rockies, I had a nice chat with my mother on the phone and Andrew came home from his SciFi night out with Neal, a quick catch up on our day and it was bedtime.

Another busy day on tap. Get the orders processed and hit the road to travel into Northern Virginia to see the Sacred Threads Quilt Exhibit with Leslee and Sue. I'll be coming home and hitting the studio to finish up the details on two projects that need to be wrapped up and wool cut, so I have a few projects for our upcoming road trip.

Until Next Time
Be Kind

A Dream

Warning...this blog post may cause some tears, but believe me, that are happy ones. I had a dream last night, and my father was in it. Now for those of you that don't know, I lost my father in 2013, and there isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of him. I'm sure I've had dreams about him, but they never seemed real...this one was real. Let me set the dream up for you... I was back in my hometown, Havelock North Carolina, and shopping for some type of necklace, and I hear a voice behind me "not that one, pick the blue one"... I turn around, and there was my father, I started screaming and crying, screams, and tears of joy because there was my father in the flesh. We had a nice long hug, and I asked where he had been because I knew he hadn't been around for almost a full 7 years. It seems that he had been pulled for a special mission with the government and couldn't tell any of us, including my mom. Now, speaking of my mother, she doesn

2021 = Self-Care

 2020 wasn't the best of years, it wasn't the worst, but that is behind us and I'm looking forward to 2021 that is full of blank pages. Walk with me, cook with me, read with me, craft with me...just come out and hang with me. Until Next Time Be Kind


Isn't it funny how there are certain things that can cause a major discussion...religion, politics and the weather.  Spending a good chunk of my life in Eastern North Carolina... See that little town, Havelock, yep that's where I grew up...anyway back to the weather. Ya see, growing up there I know a thing or two about humidity, to say it's thick is an understatement. The threat of hurricanes coming up the coast was an annual event and we took it in stride because that's what you do.  Snow...don't go there, when it snows everything stops, seriously, no road salt trucks, plows, what's that?  In 1989 there was a snowstorm to beat all snowstorms, poor Skip (the local weather legend) is still talking about it. Sitting on my front porch in Virginia this Sunday morning the air is so thick I can actually see it and you can almost taste it..yep it's THICK...and ya know what it feels pretty good.  But ya know what feels better, the a/c when you do walk back
