So pleased that the worst fears weren't realized, hope there's some answer soon.
Just as well we've planted very little outside except the hardy little roses and the redbud tree, as we hit the freezing mark last night again. Only a little below it, so not a hard freeze, just not quite yet time to be planting. The little seedlings that we've indoor planted are growing like mad in the meantime. The cucumbers are already two inches high, and the broccoli and mustard were the first ones out the gate and more than two inches tall. Already had to move those to six-inch pots, as it will be another week before we plant, if not two. The larger pots and time and attention will let them develop good root systems anyway. Today we'll need to move all three types of tomatoes into the larger pots. The potatoes, corn and beans will go directly into the ground once it's warmer. Corey's growing veggies and I'm working on herbs... My dehydrator should be here in a couple weeks, and Corey wants to try to make jerky as well. Should be interesting.
Regarding the quilt, am still working on the framing pieces around the center star. Each of the eight long strips must be sandwiched with batting, double-checked to make sure that I've gotten the right front and back for each one, and once that's all done will begin quilting them. If I were cooking, I'd be just past the mise en place stage now and beginning the combining of the ingredients, making sure to cook them in the right order. I realized last night that I hate cooking and love baking because I genuinely do despise the texture and taste of most main ingredients for savory dishes, so I can only cook by smell. There are very few things that are baked that aren't seriously yummy, though.
Not feeling well most of the day yesterday, but better today. Hope everyone has or had a lovely, lazy Sunday.

Good morning all! Happy Sunday! Well, I had planned to do some yard work this weekend and to also get my growing teepee built; but I over did it playing with the kids on Wednesday and woke with a swollen knee on Thursday. I am not even sure what I did. Probably just the extra walking/running on the uneven ground (up and down the hill in the back yard). So, I worked Thursday and Friday, but didn't take the kids on any walks and tried to sit as much as possible. Yesterday, I got the shopping done and sat with ice and heat on my knee for the rest of the day. Swelling is down today, but not totally gone; so I will do paperwork and planning today and keep the heat and ice going. I have been making HORRIBLE food choices as I sit and try to stay off my leg. Barbara: My outdoor classroom ideas are: A music wall, a mud kitchen, a water table, a growing teepee (beans, tomatoes, peppers), an art area, and a construction zone. I also have a little area that I would like to make a "fairy garden", but have things set up so that the kids can make/rearrange it daily.Machka- Oooof! So glad you were able to get your hubby in and seen. I am glad he is fine now and hope you will have an answer to what that episode was (so that it isn't repeated). Hugs to you both!Hugs to all who are dealing with health issues of their own or of family members. A talent I wish I had- I wish I had photographic memory. Then learning any new talent would be a bit easier; because there are many talents that I wish I had. lol All take time and dedication; which is something I have little of, right now. Or, it is focused on priority.Who would I invite to dinner- Hmmmm...I was going to say, I have to think about it. But I think I would pick my dad. I never got to know either of my parents as an adult. My mom was so chatty and open about her life and childhood that I feel like I know her very well. My dad, however, was very quiet. He often came into the restaurant that I worked in after my mom passed. Pretty sure he was checking up on me, because I worked to "not feel the loss". Sometimes I had time to sit with him, most times I didn't. When he passed six months after my mom, all I could think of was the missed opportunities. So, I owe him dinner and time.Pip You look like you are all settling in nicely to the new place and new routines! What is the big pile of dirt in the pic?
I better get busy with my paperwork! ttfn xoxoxo KJ (Kelly)
