Hot, Hot, Hot
Yikes it is hot today. By the time church was over and I got back to my car the steering wheel was too hot to touch, the asphalt was sending off wavey mirage lines, and my sunglasses were trying to ski-jump off my nose. It is hot!
I had hoped to to do a little bit of work on the yard today but that is tossed! Our deck was pressure washed and stained so it looks nice. I'd just like to get some weeds pulled. I may break down and hire the kid down the street. Heat is the toughest thing for my MS...suddenly I get very tired and then my eyes have trouble focusing. Within a few minutes my eyesight is so bad/wobbly that I can't trust myself driving a car nor can I sew a straight line! It can take anywhere from a few minutes to days to get back to normal. Very frustrating but something that if I use a bit of common sense I can ususally avoid! (common sense = hiring the kid down the street)
The little quilt in the photo was hidden in a bookcase between civil war books. I made it about 10 years ago. It is made out of one piece of striped fabric fussy cut to make it look like a sampler quilt. Yes, it is the size of a potholder but not to be used as one! I had it hanging in the bookcase at one time but I guess my DH piled a few books on top without looking. Doesn't look like it has hurt it any!
Today I will do a bit more packing. Not a whole lot of energy left! My goal to day is to seperate out the items I do not want to ship and put them in one closet. Maybe if I put lots of "Crime scene tape" then they will know not to go in there?! I also have to do one more trip to Lowes to pick up paint for the kitchen...the list continues to grow....
