I can’t believe that just yesterday morning I was sitting on the front steps at my sister’s house in South Jordan, Utah posing with my nieces for the first day of school photos!
Taylor started 3rd grade yesterday.
How can that be possible? I remember making her baby quilt!
There are photos of her here with it as an infant. Isn’t blogging wonderful? It’s all HERE!
In Utah the elementary schools go year round in blocks, so I was just thrilled at how my “Bonus Day” in Utah panned out.
Not only was I there for an impromptu family BBQ complete with fireworks on a state holiday for Pioneer Day, but I got to go with Taylor to the school to drop her off for her first day of 3rd grade.
Such a big pretty girl!
It took me so way back to when my boys were little. First day of school is a BIG DEAL. they get to see their friends, they are excited about meeting their new teacher, wondering where they will sit and if they will like it.
I loved the plethora of new shoes all over the playground!
Nieces Addie and Emmie couldn't resist one turn down the slide!
From here it was straight to the airport and I was winging my way home – no delays no more whammies! HOME!
These two were happy to see me!
It was early to bed last night, I was exhausted. And I slept way past 8am this morning, but I am reminding myself that I am still on mountain time, and it will take a few days to readjust.
And I’ve got the show & share from Montana! It’s a long one, 5 days worth of workshops went into this show & share, so pour a cuppa and enjoy!
So here I am at home, a day short in my week and feeling pretty rushed with deadlines. But I’m pacing it out this morning. I’ve got a haircut that I can’t miss….because the next thing on my docket is the workshop recording in Golden Colorado early August.
I’ve got a massage this afternoon that I can’t miss because I am so tight and sore I am walking crooked.
And then we’ll tackle one thing at a time and knock things off the very long to-do list.
Mail order is going out a bit late because of the flight detours. That can’t be helped. It will all be out by tomorrow.
Quilt cam? I have an eye doc appointment tomorrow morning, and I think they are dilating my eyes again, but I’m eager to sew – I’m thinking Quilt-Cam tomorrow evening will be a great distraction. Be watching for update on that, it all depends on how the eyes do tomorrow. I will post more about that tomorrow afternoon if that is going to be a go. Let’s plan it as a YES, 9pm eastern, and if it is a no, I will send out a message.
Quiltville Quote of the Day!
If you aren't happy with yourself, make a change. Start small and build on it. We are not limited by our past, the future is wide open!
Vintage churn Dash quilt shared by a student in my Helena, Montana workshops this past weekend. Love the stripes!
Happy Wednesday, everyone!
