Jumped up this morning and rushed around to fix breakfast! Seemed like I was running late all morning. Richard has been home from work since last Wednesday evening. His work truck is down and they don't have an extra one for him to drive. But that is okay because he is still getting paid for it!!!! Anyway, I love him being home, but were I'm not used to it, it throws my routine completely off!!!!
So I rush off to my quilt guild meeting with Hunter in tow. Had a great time there. So many talented ladies. Talked about several projects that we have planned, then next one in August is a Stack-n-wack 4 patch.
Here are some photos that I took at guild this morning. I think I would like to make this quilt, I have a ton of scraps and this would be a great way to use some of them up. The lady standing there in blue is the one who made it. And if you look real close you will see my Civil War Diary and Love Letter blocks on the table behind it.
These are some photos of our Mystery Quilt that we did a few months ago. I still haven't finished mine. I really need to get back to that.
I think this one is Brenda's. I was sooooooooo pretty, she embroidered bugs and butterflies on it! It really made a difference in the quilt.
I left quilt guild expecting to come home and have to unload several rolls of hay. I pulled in the driveway and the hay was unloaded, walked in the house and I got a big shock!!!!! Andrew was running the vacuum and Richard was running water to do the breakfast dishes!!! Now, Richard and I have been together over 8 years and this is the first time I have ever saw him in the kitchen for anything except to get into the refrigerator!!!! It's not that he doesn't think he should do any housework, it's just that he works 16-18 hours a day so that I can be home with the kids, so I just feel that all the housework should be my responsibility! I know it is silly, but I got really upset, I jumped in and done the dishes. I said if you all do my job then what am I needed for??? So then I got this big lecture from him and the boys about how important that I am to them and I'm not just needed to clean the house! I guess I was just being whinny! You know how moody we ladies get from time to time! :) But I'm over all of that now!
So now all the housework is finished and we took the boys to pick apples!!!
This is an apple tree down by the pond. We picked about three 5 gallon buckets full, for now. There are still plenty, and I will get them later. With the ones that I got today, I am peeling them and putting them in the freezer for apple pies and fried apples. When I go back later and load up, I plan on making apple butter, applesauce, and apple jelly! Right now, I only have 4 quarts cut up and in the freezer, just taking a break, my fingers are cramping!!!
Anyway, I'm off!! I think I will sew a block or two before I get back to my apples!!!
