Wow! It's the second Sunday in August and another opportunity to get some slow stitching on my Hocuspocusville block 8 today. I may get it finished today if all goes well.
I will be linking my post up over at Kathy's Quilts blog today here is the link come on over and see what other talented bloggers are slow stitching today.
My health continues to improve and Tuesday I showed a loss of 3 pounds which is always a good feeling. My daily walks have been scattered at different times of the day usually to avoid the rain so a few days I found myself walking in the early afternoon, great on the beach not so great at the park I forget how oppressive the heat and humidity can be at that time of day.
It's been a very lovely week with daily rain finally giving the dry garden and lawn a good soaking. I don't have any photos to show today but I can say I have lots of weeds to pull this week.
This week I am reading the first book in the new series by Terri DuLong, Patterns of Change, so far I
On Friday I passed up my usual trip to the beach and headed out to Citrus Springs to see my sister and grandniece. They have recently moved here from Texas, they are renting the house for a month until the closing on the house in Crystal River which isn't too far from where she is now. She moved to Texas last year because she didn't want to deal with all the snowy winters any longer, but she didn't like Texas at all too, too hot in the summer. She lived here in Florida when our mother lived here so she knows much of the area. I haven't seen my sister in over a decade and seeing my grandniece was pure pleasure. Her husband will join her in October, he works in insurance and is now in Oregon, and barring any tornadoes or hurricanes or other related disasters he should be there until he retires in a few months.
Anyway my sister and niece will be in town once a week for the bounce house so I plan to meet up with her when I can so she doesn't feel so isolated and we can perhaps start to mend those broken fences that kept me away for so long.
