I was thinking I should pop in for a quick post so you wouldn't think I had totally disappeared from the face of the earth. I don't know what is wrong with me. I have had lots going on but lost my blogging/stitching mojo somewhere. Hopefully it will return soon. I have been reading some blogs when time allows but have been terrible at leaving comments. I do apologize as I find you all so inspirational and I enjoy seeing what you are doing.
The past couple of months have been spent battling a rezoning of the property next door to ours. There were plans for a septic tank business to be constructed but I am happy to say all our hard work paid off and the rezoning was denied. I learned quite a bit about our local government in the process but I am so glad that is behind me. I am not much of a public speaker and having to give a presentation before both the Planning and Zoning Board and the County Commissioners was not fun.
Betty seems to have finally settled in and realizes that we aren't going to leave her. She was quite a handful at first because she was so terrified of being left and followed me every step. We are now taking obedience classes and I am hoping that will help with her relationship with the cats.
After thinking about it and deciding I wasn't going to plant a garden this year, I did. LOL I blame this website mysquarefootgarden . This picture is right after planting.
And this is one week later. I added a trellis for my tomatoes, cucumbers, and snap peas to climb and a couple of posts for my squash. I am going to try to train the squash to grow vertically so they don't take up so much space in the garden
In one week I have had radish, lettuce, onions, peas, and carrots to sprout. Those little sprouts have given me hope that my garden may just produce something this year. Wish me luck!
I hope that all you mothers had a fabulous Mother's Day. I think this one will go down as my worst ever. I woke up very nauseated. By 10:30 am I was vomiting and by 2:30 pm I had taken up residence on the throne. I had a temperature of over 100 and I can't remember the last time I felt so sick. I missed work today and I do think the worst is behind me although I feel very weak.
On the stitching front, I am turtleing along on the Little House Needleworks doggie rescue piece. Next month Praiseworthy Stitches is doing a workshop for our guild and I am really looking forward to it. It will be my very first stitching workshop and should be lots of fun.
So that's my update for now. I will try my best not to be such a stranger.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you are all having a wonderful spring!
