A crooked scan, but here it is... what I got done on MTM today. I have really mixed feelings - should I keep forging ahead, or should I swap to something else tomorrow? Why am I racing to get it done right away, it is only the 13th of May. After all, I am a rotation stitcher at heart, and I realized today that I am not so happy doing MTM for several days at a time... I feel other projects are neglected... so maybe tomorrow I will work on the Neighborhood RR instead... I think I just talked myself into that...
This photo is posted here for Barbara. Viewing her photos in her blog today of her family's recent outing to the Keukenhof flower fields made me very reminiscent of the trip Mike and I took there in March, 2001. So.... I dug around in our old photo files on the computer and chose to share this one.. I was the heaviest I have ever, ever been in my life at that time, but in this pic, you really cannot see that.... so I chose it!!! This visit to the Keukenhof was a highlight of the trip. For it was on that trip that we learned our persian, PC, had taken quite ill at the vet and had to be put down due to kidney failure. It was a hard thing to go through while we were all the way across the Atlantic at the time... (Oh my gosh! I just noticed I had very long purple fingernails back then! Well, that was before I turned 40 - LOL!!)
As my entry title says, it is time to build an ark - seriously. We are on day what?... um four or five now of rain - today it is very heavy rain and we had to drive to Massachusetts to do Mother's Day with my husband's mother/birthday with his uncle... Now I hear the rain shall continue to Wednesday. We are in the zone of heaviest rain with flooding of the rivers. No river near me, so all is OK right now... there is a lake not too far away, I wonder how that is doing!
Kudos to Ryan Newman - two top ten finishes two weeks in a row now.... maybe he will finally break through with a win soon!
