Well, it was a lazy start around 9AM. Seems everyone turned over and went back to sleep after being woken up at 4:30AM with thunder storm number 1 and then again around 7:30 with storm number 2.
We called off Grandma/Emily shopping birthday day as storm#3 was to be heavy rain and wind about the time Grandma was to drive up to us. It was a good call as the heavy rain started around 10 and has been off and on heavy to light rain with thunder for almost 3 hours now.
We (you know that We Mom? Greg was the We this time!) cooked a briscuit on the smoker yesterday until the 4:30PM storm had us bring it inside and cover the smoker - it has the thermostat as electric and water and electric don't mix. It had done the smoking portion already so we finished it in the oven on low. Around 7PM.... it was oh so yummy to 'taste test' it. It will be warmed up for a late lunch today. I have white bread about ready to go in the oven and potato's bubbling in water for a potato salad. Greg boiled up 20 eggs yesterday (coming out our ears they are... but I got a few dozen sold for next Saturday's horse lesson at the stables!) so that portion of the potato salad is done.
It was a lazy start watching America's Test Kitchen Season 17 on Amazon Prime. I got a couple of Hexagons stitched and have 11 done this month. I prepped enough for the week yesterday so they are easy to grab to stitch and quilt in the evenings.
I'll be resting up my ankle today with some hand stitching and a movie. Some work to finish off stitching this flowering snowball block and I have one more prepped and ready to stitch. That will give me a good amount for a little throw.
Then I'll add some stitches into the basket table topper.
I turned my ankle about a week ago and took it easy but overdid it on my walk Thursday night. Then was up on it way too much yesterday with horses - walking to the outdoor arena, then around Lowes with Aidan, then planting and walking around the yard. Of course.... I have been up on it today too - prepping the potato salad and making bread and cleaning up the kitchen. Let's just say I can feel it so it will be up on a pillow for the afternoon! Maybe I'll even have time to get the twosies of the Endless Diamonds into foursies!.
Linking up with the Slow Sunday Stitchers.
