I forgot to bring my vintage sewing box to the hospital. Darn…cause I really need to do some sewing. Even if it is just learning some hand embroidery…anything. Maybe I’ll finally learn how to smock using those smocking stickers…maybe.
When I’m not doing something with my hands, my mind tends to wander…and that’s not a good thing these days. There is only so much Law & Order one can watch and BINGO one can play (especially considering B5, B13, I27 and N33 are missing from the box).
Not to worry…I drove home to NY in the wee hours of the morning. I needed
my vintage sewing box some more clothes . My Sunshine Girl has been asking me to make something similar to one of these in her size:
I’ve also been missing my garden. Two weeks ago, I bought a bunch of annual flowers. Guess I’ll just have to leave them on my neighbor’s porch as I won’t have time to plant them this year. I was going to have my Expensive Gardener plant tons of annuals like he did last year, but the $2,200 bill he gave me persuaded me to do it myself this year.
But luckily I planted some Tall Bearded Iris from my favorite Iris farmer and some other perennials so I will have flowers this Summer.
There was lots of packages waiting for me when I arrived home. I smiled when I opened the box that contained these two books I won on e-Bay for a mere $2:
Score! Well, I’m off to sort some laundry (Mr. Diva can’t seem to figure out how to do this and call the laundry guy for pick-up. Unbelievable.)
The Sunshine Girl is still hospitalized in Philadelphia. She’ll be undergoing some tests tomorrow and is on a liquid diet today. Mr. Diva
and my little guy are supposed to be driving down there today to spend the day with her woke up complaining of kidney stones. I think I’ll scream if Mr. Diva ends up in the hospital, too.
P.S. – My Koi fishies are still alive and doing well. All is good in the world.
