Where did the summer go?
Then in July, my daughter had a tumor removed from her brain. So my energies were all spent in worrying and hovering and being a mama. She's better now and plans to return to work next week. I've kind of enjoyed most of the time I spent with her. We ferried her son back and forth to his dad's house several times. We watched some chick flicks. We played some games. Love is a beautiful thing, and she gives me plenty. I am so happy that this is behind us now. The tumor was benign, but pressed on a nerve and caused her terrible pain.
I did manage to see some fireworks from the Walmart parking lot on the fourth of July. Not a bad viewing point. And no traffic to speak of.
As I was leaving the parking lot, I saw the finale from the display in Round Rock. Then as I turned onto the Parkway, I saw the ones in Wells Branch. Wow. Three for the price of one. Which was free.
And of course I managed to go to a quilt retreat with my friends.
I made a baby quilt top with a new pattern, three cross-body purses for my daughter, her mother-in-law and her sister-in-law.
I helped my friend Rita hem some receiving blankets, and made some more mindless Pineapple blocks.
Went swimming with the great-grandkids, played Candyland, kept the bills paid and the laundry done.
I'm ready for fall!
