The garden is slowing down and we have ripped out the cucumber, watermelon, cantaloupe and tomatoes, and replanted tomatoes and green beans for a second harvest. One tomato plant is all I really ever should have planted, as most rot before I can eat them all. My neighbors have their own.
Dave stays awake most of the night and sleeps in the day so I can more easily give him his meds. His idea, not mine. When he is not sleeping he plays golf across the road at the country club, which he joined in the Spring. He has made so many wonderful friends, who treat him like the gentle man that he is. His golf game has been a real boon to his life, and he continues to improve.
His health is good and bad and this week we have a new neurologist to see and our hopes are high.
Since our move, I have made so many quilting friends and it has really changed my outlook on life. One of the reasons I blogged for ten years was that I was lonely. Not so anymore. My social life is so wonderful and after the quilt show, I feel I have arrived!
My niece glory has joined a FRATERNITY! She is a sophomore at UT and a music theater major. The fraternity is for music students.
My sister Brooke has a new job in management at the big Joann's in town. How wonderful for us both, as she can let me know when something I would want is in. Woowoo! Plus she is much happier in the world of sewing where her talents are understood.
With the new blog, I wanted a fresh start and made it the place for all my old and new work, in one site. I felt that if I wanted to show a gallery my work I could just refer gallery directors to one address, leaving out all the personal stuff so I would present the work more professionally.
But you know, I don't really need to be in a gallery, since my work sells right off the blog, so here we all are back to normal.
And now the work.
