I received word this morning that the recipient of the BB quilt passed away through the night. I'm glad she had such a beautiful last day...it felt like spring. We'll re-visit the project after emotions settle. It is my hope that it become a memory quilt which can be donated to a worthy cause. She would have wanted that. In the meantime my sincest condolences go out to her family and friends.
So I felt the need to occupy my brain today. I didn't sleep well last night after seeing Shutter Island with DH's co-workers. So I pulled out my ...gasp...CROSS STITCHING and sat in the sun and tried a few stitches. I did well until the froggies came for a little visit! I think they must have missed me. I'm excited the be making these small / & \ ..it's amazing how they all go together and form something wonderful.
My seedlings are doing well, except for my Healthy Kick tomatoes. Not a single sprout. I may have planted them too deep...but the other tomatoes seem to have germinated fine...or I have dud batch. I'll re-seed and if after 10 days I don't see anything, I'll re-purchase another type.
This week we'll be researching how to repair a hot tub shell. Last week I uncovered it to check and found a huge chip on the outside edge but worse yet...a crack going over the top edge towards the body of the unit. I pulled out the warranty and found that the shell only carries a 5 year consumer protection. I checked other brands and they too only offer 5 years, so no matter which unit we had, we'd be in the same situation after 11 seasons. We'll be checking under the unit to see if the ground had eroded causing a sag or whatever. It didn't appear to heave from the frost. If the worse case scenario happens, we'll look at the bright side, knowing a new unit will be more energy efficient. It is what it is.
Well must run, and get dinner organized. I'm cooking ribs and a pan of cornbread! Yum!
