Work: Dump, Broccoli Soup, Kiwi


 Work:  We managed to get two loads to the dump today even though it snowed.  Construction seems to leave extra unusable pieces around as well as the fact that we don’t have garbage service here.   So a load of each was removed today.

And the tanks are now in the ground, waiting for the lids to get finished and the dirt to be put back over the top of them.   Progress is progress, even when slow.

And because it snowed, it seemed appropriate to have a thick broccoli soup

Kiwi, the parrot, is enjoying extra special attention, of which he never seems to get enough.

This quilt with the hummingbirds was a 90th birthday gift made for a neighbor, who never had the opportunity to use it.   She went into the hospital on her birthday and sadly did not recover.   So I took the original label off and now it can go to someone in need.

So this weekend included a bit of this and that which is now done.  However removing the quilt label is the only one that was on my check list.

October mug rugs and dozer work

I made 2 of these mug rugs experimenting with how they are done.   The designs are from Julia’s needle work.   My daughter and her friend both have cats and ride their bikes a lot, so they will enjoy them.

And finally the dozer, the sand, and the contractor are all here and the dozer work begins.   The tanks go underground and then will be covered.   The propane and water tanks were to be completely buried by the end of August.   I will be so happy to get it done.   They are now saying by the weekend, they will have it done.   I have learned now to believe contractors.
