Baby Buckaroo Quilt and Dirt Road Chit Chat
Yesterday I kept the couple's, who lives at the camp here on the ranch, 2 little boys. Their little 2-yr old was bitten by a bat. So scary, but all is well and, thankfully, she doesn't need to have any shots. The boys and I played with Duplos, made pictures for their sister, ate blueberries and apples and bananas and peanut butter and popsicles, and planted flowers in the yard once the temperature dropped below 100°. I have forgotten how busy little ones are. But they are so much fun!
I told their mom, when I called her this morning to see if she needed anything in town and check up on her little girl (and her), that all these young people are wearing us old people out. Oye! I need a nap, but alas, I am off to bounce across the pasture with DH this afternoon in this crazy heat. 108° at the moment. Sigh.
DD will be home this evening after being away at my BIL's vet clinic in Texas for 12 days. I have missed her. It's been entirely too quiet around here, but honestly, there hasn't been much time to be sad. DH and I took a roadtrip to Texas last weekend for a wonderful wedding and then we had some dear, dear friends come stay with us Thursday night. It was nice to have someone to cook for too! I am struggling with cooking for just the two of us and it's amazing how little groceries we go through.
So, in the midst of all of that I managed to put the finishing stitch on another quilt that I'll share in a couple of days and I finished piecing DD's college quilt. Other duties call for the time being, but it feels good to be wrapping up a few things.
