and sailing by the Valley today, assisted by 40+ MPH winds. Luckily we've had sunny skies to help us enjoy those high flying clouds. Storms seem to be the 'norm' all across the USA this past few weeks. Our usual unpredictable spring weather is late in arriving.
I had a quiet Memorial Day weekend, enjoying a homemade bread treat with friends, watching some movies including 2012, and sewing. I've finished the 48 blocks I need for the Scot's Plaid pink quilt top. Still need to size them and decide on a layout.
Lots of milestones the past couple of days...53 years ago on May 29th, I graduated high school and looked forward to college. 52 years ago on May 30th, I married someone I thought was my partner for life.And sometimes life happens while you are making other plans. Back in 1959, Memorial Day was celebrated on May 30th...period. For us, it was just the last Saturday in May. The holiday weekend was a bonus for relatives.
I lunched with Betsy today and came home with new scraps and some "starts" of sedem for my shallow flower pots. The window boxes are planted and need warm weather and sunshine to help them grow. The back seat of my car is full of boxes, empty boxes. Yes, this is the year that I will be moving from my little townhouse in the Valley. I've been here nearly 7 years,and have shared almost 6 of those years with you, my blogging friends. Things are up in the air right now.My lease isn't up until Nov. 1st and it's too soon to be applying elsewhere. But it's not too soon to be packing. There is always something to pack that won't be needed until next winter.
