Now that I have arrived at the 3/4 century mark, I am middle-aged. I have so very many blessings for which to be thankful—in fact, too many to mention and then I have all of you as friends. I am very VERY blessed.
We didn’t do much before noon. Then DH wanted to take me out to lunch so did that. When we came back, I decided to get some of this applique done. I can’t find the block I showed you last month, but these are the ones I have done this week. There are a total of 9.
And this is what happens when supper time is at 6:30 and you are still getting the dog food ready at 6:35. I can assure you that animals arrive having little clocks inside those bodies.
The May day gift I received this morning was these two darling little ewe lambs. They are so tiny, but then so is their mother, weighing about 50# Dad weighs is a much larger sheep
I am so far behind my goals, but I’m going to blame it on surgeries – both foot and eye and now it’s gardening time. It may be that I don’t catch up this year. And if I don’t, that’s okay. Without goals, I get nothing done.

I started the day by removing the 4 quarts of granola from the dehydrator trays and putting it away. Now there is at least a minimal breakfast for those hot days when I won’t want to cook or for an evening meal.
Then it was off to the chiropractor. Even though I’m done, it helps if there are two people in the car as we can use the express lane, so I went along and worked on the knitting in transit.
Besides there is a Whole Foods store there and I love looking through the store. I find things I don’t find in other grocery stores and their produce always looks so good and fresh.
And before the day was over, these socks that I thought I was setting aside are finished. They are done in Elann’s superwash “Sock it to me collection” style “puzzle” I used #2 needles, cast on 64 stitches and knit 6, purl 2.
Tomorrow is my day to catch up on house cleaning and work in the hoop ouse.
This quilt is 54 inches square and finished. It is now in the laundry room waiting to be washed and then will be put in the charity pile. It seems there are so many requests end of summer that I like to get ahead.
And the dentist and the ophthalmologist are now behind me. Yes, I get to go back and have a couple small fillings in June, but the eyes are no longer swollen and the eyesight is 20/30 in one eye and reading distance in the other. So now I’m a happy camper.
And just to have a bit of fun, these two decided to go investigate the neighborhood today. They got about 1/2 mile away when a neighbor called. They love the game “catch me if you can”. But fortunately that doesn’t last too long, and they are ready to get into the car and come home.
