Robin eggs

While mama (or papa) robin did the broken wing act, DH took some photos of the eggs.

Homer happenings

Just got home from a trip to Homer on the motorcycle.  The sun was shining but the wind was cold!  At the beach of Kachemak Bay this was going on:  Kite surfing!!  Brrrrr!

Robin nest

My DH went outside to clean windows (he's a keeper!) and was going to use this ladder.  However, it was already being used!!  There are two nests on it!!  The other one is to the right of this one with no occupant in it at present.  So far I have seen no swallows around the many houses waiting for them to move in to.

Today is Memorial Day in the US, and I am very grateful to  every person who put their life at risk for my freedom.

yet to be.  This is what my bleeding heart and peony bushes look like today.  It is sunny!!! and the wind is blowing as usual.  This spring has not been nice, but it's wonderful compared to the midwest.

Design Wall one day late

Here's what's on the wall.  they are almost put together and they will receive no borders.  I'm thinking no batting and a flannel back.  Since I used a muslin foundation, these puppies are already heavy!

That was me after my fabulous session with a new to me massage therapist.  DH gave me a blank check for a day spa here in town for Mother's Day, and I took him up on it.  My usual therapist quit to become a firefighter/paramedic, so I have been without for too long!  Heather is wonderful--she pushed and stretched me till I hurt so good!  So today I see my chiropractor, tomorrow the eye Dr., Monday I get my summer color on my hair, Wed. my teeth cleaned.  Wow!  I will be a new person--wonder if DH will know me?!??

Is this Love, or what?

While at work today this arrived.  DH is on the slope and it's our 28th anniversary---I know, I was 12 when we got married!

Anniversary Gecko

Bet that title grabbed your attention!!  Becca sent me this fabulous metal gecko and 2 "How to" quilting DVDs for my anniversary--on time (actually early!!) and in THE bag!  (We have been recycling the same gift bag for years, and she blew it last year and kept it.  I chastised her and she sent it back!!)  Isn't he adorable? and the perfect color!!  As you can tell, I LOVE him!!

Had an endoscopy this morning to find out why my stomach feels like a soccer ball resides there and I'm always feeling full. (The tiny amounts I was eating did NOT result in weight loss  :(  oh, well)  and discovered a small hiatial hernia (that is misspelled, but I'm too lazy to get out my dictionary!)  I slept from noon til 6:00 this evening.  Those were some wonderful knockout drugs!

Hopefully tomorrow I will post what I accomplished at quilt camp--and other shannanigans
