Sorry for the silence. It's been busy here... How is everyone doing?!
Spring Break started @ 0800 Friday morning & I am SO...SEW happy!!! : ) I was steeped in flu & gastro, & was thrilled to get out of there before any of the germs took a hold of me!!! Go ahead, ask me how many times I washed my hands in an 8 hour shift...?!
Friday morning after work Scott & I made a trip to Ikea. We wanted to look carefully & critically @ what parts & pieces they might have to offer our current home transformation. We left there pleasantly surprised with several choices to consider.
Saturday, we went to the Beach!!! Clark & Hil were down @ their Rehoboth pad, so we piled Jingle in the car & headed out around noon. Jingle did AWESOME @ the Beach!!! : ) We weren't sure if he'd be overwhelmed & scared, or run away if un-leashed, or God forbid, poop in the sand... He was FABULOUS!!! Jingle even did a good job with Clark & Hil's dog, Cosmo, a 10 year old horse of an Irish Wolf Hound mix! In the evening we left the dogs @ home & went out for auce (all you can eat) crabs+. It was a marvelous day & the weather was glorious!!! We got home this morning & had chores & more to get done!
I hung wash out on the line today!!! I just LOVE that! It SMELLS SO good!!! I think I might be able to do it again tomorrow too! : )
Scott & I went back to Ikea today. After discussing things we were both interested in & taking measurements along, we walked through their vignettes & decided what we definitely wanted to buy. Today we came home with a chaise lounge for the "new" living room & a ceiling light too! We will be going back later in the week for some studio furniture! Scott selected a computer table & we decided on some other furnishings too. : )
We are making forward progress. The chaos is starting to move towards organization. It feels much better to me, I'm not so...sew unsettled.
I have things loaded in the car to take to a thrift shop tomorrow morning. There is a Salvation Army en route to Rehoboth Beach, we made a pit stop there yesterday! It's a little bit crazy here - Shelby can't tell what's coming or going...?!
Okay, who is going to the Guild meeting tomorrow evening? Jean, I will go & gladly hitch a ride with you if that's okay?! : ) I didn't do the BOM, & I forgot all about bags for Moms. Maybe I can pick up a stuffed animal tomorrow! I did do 1+ kids quilts & I will probably take my Trip quilt for show 'n tell.
That just about does it for now! You're all caught up with the news from this end! Enjoy your evening & the milder temps!
