Thanks to those of you who have come looking for me the last couple of weeks. All is well at our house, just super busy. I started a blog post about 10 days ago, but I was just too tired.
My sister came for a visit! And we took advantage of every minute she was here. Which didn’t leave us much time for sleeping. We had a Girl’s Day, complete with mani-pedi’s, Margaritas, and a long walk. The following day, we let DH join us, and we went touring When we reached a higher elevation, we found beautiful winter wonderland scenes like this
At lower elevations, there was no sign of snow.
Then we went back to a higher elevation
We took her out for a ‘real’ Maryland crab cake, and there may have been some Krumpe’s donuts-hot and fresh- for a bedtime snack. But then we didn’t go to bed until after 4:00
On Sunday, we went to Virginia for a surprise birthday for our sil, and I left my sister with them for the last couple of days of her visit. I had to go to bed early a couple of nights to try to get rested.
Then this past weekend, I went to a Quilt Retreat. I went up Thursday after work, stayed up late, then got up and went to work for half a day on Friday. Because I’m new at my job, I haven’t earned any paid time off yet. At lunchtime, I raced back up to the retreat, and sewed like crazy until Sunday afternoon
I took a couple of older projects that I purchased over three years ago, This is the only one I’ve photographed so far. I have another top that is almost finished – it just needs two borders I hope to get everything finished within the next couple of weeks, but first, I have a Scrapbook Retreat this weekend I should probably be packing right now Unfortunately we had a plumbing emergency, so tonight went down the tubes
I’m off now to do some stitching. I need to be kind to myself.
