Makers and doers

June 12, 2018


It has been lovely spending time with my family. My Mom showed me a lap quit she made – stitching the little triangles by hand with her small, neat stitches. If I were haveing her parent-teacher conference, I would point out her great fine-motor skills!

Monday morning we worked in the yard for a little bit. Actually, my Dad worked in the yard a lot. He was up at the crack of dawn spraying the fruit trees to get rid of the coddling moths.


Later, Keren and I helped out a little with the yard. Mom and Dad had a sprinkler system installed and we worked on repairing the ruts where the lines went in. Mom’s flowers looked great and I weeded for about fifteen seconds.

Keren has been working on a budget report for her job, and my head swims just thinking about the numbers she has to work with. It’s pretty amazing.

Later in the day we made a shopping trip and then had the most amazing steak dinner at home on the deck. Ahhhh…. vacation…..

    That sounds like an awesome day. I love quilts and gardening and steak. I don’t like budget reports very much though. Sorry, Keren.

    So glad you got to go. I hope all the fires are far away from them

    Oh, I forgot that is a lovely quilt.
