No Sewing Zone

I'm not spending much time at the sewing machine these days so there has been very little in the way of sewing going on around here this month. I actually pulled the mower out last week. The only thing green around here is the yard because I have been watering like crazy just trying to keep the trees alive.

I've also been spending my time:

*cooking for company
*cleaning up fabric piles so company has a place to sleep
* enjoying our girl when she came home for one night
* chausing the neighbor's cattle off of the hwy when some nut decided to cut the fence in two places. Who does that?!
*working in the yard and garden
*Bouncing across the pastures when DH feeds
*Going to the trap range and giving Tim the quilt Gail and I made for him
*Doing taxes
*Waiting for the pilot car every time we go to town
*teaching myself to crochet and working on that when I am waiting for said pilot car
*missing our boy
*enjoying more suppers by the fire
*replanting seeds when the wind whipped all of my little seed cups down and scattered them across the yard. Our sweet 15-yr old cowdog rushed to help and promptly covered what he could by plopping down on his belly in an attempt to shield them from the wind. Sigh. I fussed at him and he gave me that pitiful look. He can't hear a thing these days, but he knows my, "OH, No! GUS!" was a scolding. Then I felt badly and sat in the yard for 20 minutes with a 60# dog in my lap while I told him he was the best dog in the world, because he is.

Most of the time, sewing takes a back seat around here and I'm good with that because I know I'll get back to it eventually. I've got a quilt that needs to be ready for a wedding, but I've also got a hubby that's about to head out to work on a water trough and I think he could use a  trusty sidekick this afternoon.

You have been very too. No sewing, no blogging even :-( ! Sewing time will come.

Your reasons for not sewing are completely valid; mine, not so much.

Love the image of you and Gus sitting in the yard.

Sometimes life just gets in the way of our sewing, but isn't life wonderful after all?

Isn't it amazing how life gets in the way of sewing? We've driven 160 miles to see a Dr. Will do it again Friday. Attended a HOA meeting where people want to tell me what I can and can't do with my property. Fixed the weather vane that couldn't stand the Texas wind. Cooked a meal for a sick friend plus some extra dishes for us. And the danged house needs dusting again. Geez! But wait! Nothing on the agenda today! I can work on the latest quilt, make my sock monkey, start a new purse. Leftovers in the fridge! Whoopee! Life is good!
