Happy Mother’s Day

mothersdayWhat a lovely day it is here.  Not too warm and sunny.  Gracie and I had a very nice walk this morning.  Right now I am sitting with my legs propped up, Gracie is right beside me and I am sipping an iced coffee.

While I was out walking I saw a few things I wanted to photograph.  When I got home I looked for my camera.  I can’t find it!  I have no idea where it could be.  So, my Mother’s Day has been spent pulling things out of my very overstuffed quilt room trying to locate it.

My daughter was disappointed I wanted to stay home to work on my quilt room.  Funny, kids don’t understand that sometimes it’s nice to just be by yourself so you can tackle a project that has been weighing on your mind.  We faced timed this morning which was really nice.  She was fine then.

So, I have pulled numerous boxes and bins out of that room.  So far no camera.  I haven’t panicked yet.  But, I did ask my son to do some research on cameras for me so that I can get a new one if necessary.  I really have missed my photography.  I know that I am not that good, but I do enjoy it so much.

I have been looking around for some challenges like we used to have on WordPress.  I remember that some people ran some on their own.  I like doing challenges because it forces me to write more often.  If anyone can suggest any, I would appreciate you letting me know.

Have a good rest of your Mother’s Day.

Coffee Share

If we were having coffee this morning, we would be sipping through our face masks. We are still in a stay at home situation here in North Carolina. The only time I go out is to walk Gracie. Poor girl’s walks have gotten shorter, but she seems to have gotten used to it.

As you can see from the picture above, my coffee cup is empty and very lonely sitting on my patio table.  I do sit on the patio, but it’s very cold out today.  I went out there and only lasted a couple of minutes.  🙂

It’s been a while since I have posted. I am having fun trying to figure out how things work here now. It seems they have changed how things are done.  It took me forever to find where I could use the old editor.  

I have been keeping busy sewing masks. Our health care facilities have asked for them. The big problem is everyone is making them and supplies have run short. Not fabric, I have plenty, but the elastic needed for the masks is out of stock everywhere. I ordered 100 yards over a month ago and it still has not come in.

I miss getting to spend time with my quilter friends. But the biggest hurdle for me is not being able to attend Mass and receive the sacraments. Seeing it online is not the same. This pandemic has really changed our way of life. It certainly gives us pause to reevaluate what is important and what is not. I hope that our economy will pick back up after the stay at home order is rescinded. I know that many people are struggling with no paycheck coming in.

I am excited because I am going to Medjugorje in October. I have wanted to make a pilgrimage there for a very long time. I am praying that by then this pandemic is just a memory so it doesn’t get canceled.

Stay home, stay healthy!
