After a rainy Saturday, the sun has returned to the Tri-Cities! That's good news for my mood, my to-do list, stitching, and the twins driving back to college yesterday.
Kevin and Kyle came home for the long weekend, since they're both just a couple hours' drive away. It's worthwhile to cook a meal when they're home! Best of all I had my football-watching buddy here to watch the big Seahawks/Packers game Sunday afternoon. It would be understating it to say he gets caught up in a Seahawks game. Over and over he'd be saying under his breath, sometimes loudly, "I still believe!" His faith in the team paid off big time with the Hawks unbelievable comeback. Then the yelling at that final touchdown filled the house!
During the ball game, there is no way I could stitch, not that game. But I had laundry to fold and ironing to do (but I never got to it) to expend some of that nervous energy that builds up. But yesterday, on a lovely, quiet MLK Day, I was able to spend more time on Convent Garden.
The green border here is called rapid stitch, the first time I'd seen that variation, but it does give one the idea of a shrub, perhaps a boxwood. Love it!
And now we're back to normal schedule with the boys gone back to college, Kirsten at school, and Gary and me doing our thing - in the sunshine. Gotta enjoy it while it's here!
