I like using sewing to relieve stress. I have felt compelled to keep the news on and used the anxiety to propel me to make donation quilts. I'm just using up scraps and making blocks for quilts.
Scout (or the Scout-essa as I often call her) thinks sewing is fun too, especially when she can invade the scrap bin...oh wait, stop there.
It's the last day of August and we can feel Autumn approaching.
I like caryopteris bushes. Not many people use them around here but you can't beat the late season bloom and even the foliage has a wonderful scent--reminiscent of lavender. It's a great bush.
I like that this primrose continues to bloom. It was given to me when Seamus died by my neighbor Denise. It is very happy and always seems to have a flower on it. It makes me feel like Seamus is always with me.
Finally, a note for my friend LeeAnna. LeeAnna as you know is our hostess of the "I like Thursdays" posts and you can see her website here. You may remember that Milo is recovering from a serious injury and in a brace. LeeAnna commented that he isn't gaining a lot of weight. We are seeing the same situation with Scout.
If there is one truth I know about poodles it is this: they eat in relation to the exercise they are getting. So it is not surprising to me that Scout isn't gaining much weight, she often leaves much of her kibble in her bowl these days but she is still on exercise restrictions and rest for her leg. I'm not worried about it (too much) because I know she is really going to shoot up when she is better and can take walks again.
I hope you have a safe and healthy week! Be well and happy!
