I hope to take a few stitches on this purple umbrella today. Hope is the important word there.
I'm not sure if there will be 2 more after this or if I add another 11. I guess I'll decide mid October.
Linking up with Kathy and the other slow stitchers.
There has been no sewing or stitching at all this week and I am in Florida instead of Vermont. My father in law Tom has been in the ICU since Monday. He turned 84 on Sunday and had called off our dinner out on Saturday not feeling well. There was great improvement yesterday and he was moved to a normal room late yesterday. Greg has headed over to see how he is today. The kids had an overnight with Grandma last night and they went to the car races - a previously scheduled outing and overnight. Let's just say I got woken up at 8:30PM from the recliner and told to go to bed to sleep last night! I think I have been in bed by 9 the last 3 nights. Very unlike me. Oh - Greg's parents have been divorced since he was 6 but both come over for holidays and are friendly. She has been great and came over to stay with the kids when we first found out. It has been lots of driving and shuffling of schedules to keep the kids centered and 'normal'.
Today...I'll grab a shower and see how I am feeling as to if I go get Em from Grandma's (45 minutes away) or if Greg swings that way from the hospital. She has a 1PM birthday party to go to. I'm sure another dose of Advil will keep the headache at bay and knock down the low fever. In the mean time... I'm enjoying the smell of my night blooming jasmine which is loaded on the bush outside and wafting in through the closed windows.... too hot to open them!
