I Like Thursdays: August 23, 2018


 Good Morning!  Please join those of us who add something happy to the internet on Thursdays.  I Like Thursdays are sponsored by our sweet hostess, LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color.  Be sure to check out all the participants!
This week I like that we hada few days of sunshine.  Even if we got a couple more inches of rain on Tuesday night, at least we saw some sunshine recently!

I'm sorry.  Many of you have been commenting and I didn't realize it because I wasn't getting the comments sent to my email.  I'm not sure why but I am looking on the website now and thank you for giving me a shout out!
I like these pretty mushrooms that popped up in Kathy and Earl's planters.  This type of mushroom can grow in potting soil.  Anyway, I thought it was pretty (yes it is not edible).  

I like not driving as much.  Carol has been moved to a nursing home closer to us.  She is getting stronger physically but is having a lot of moments of confusion.  Her daughter had to go home to get her own children ready to start school on Monday and at least I can be accessable in a few minutes.  We are still unsure how she is and her daughter is looking for a new neurologist right now.  The shorter commute does make my life easier and is an easier ride for Scout to visit her.

I like work.  I like working.  I haven't been able to get much done this summer due to Carol and my Mom's health situations.  This week I am getting a lot of work done on programs.  Last month I actually managed to finish a 2 quilt tops.


Well I have to walk Scout so I can get to work soon.  Have a wonderful day!

Oh my goodness. Your plate is pretty full. Don't forget to give yourself some down time. Those 2 quilts are pretty- nicely done.

Hi Michele! Oh, that photo of Carol and Scout is just priceless. I think neurological injuries are so very hard to diagnose, and certainly another opinion is often warranted. How fabulous that she is closer to you now - not so much driving is a good thing! I don't know how you had time for TWO quilt tops, but they sure look wonderful. Good for you! Happy Thursday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

I too love that photo, Michele. You have had a lot to keep up with. I'm not a great driver so that alone would take a toll on me I think. Meanwhile, those two quilts look wonderful. Yes, however did you find the time!
