Happy Memorial Day. I am grateful to everyone who has served this great country. This is my flag on the front of my house today.
May is one of my busiest months of the year. I have squeezed in some quilting, but not as much as I would have liked. We had a very wet spring, and that caused a huge delay in spring planting on the farm, so May has been go, go, go. I also had all my end of the year testing for my school, I was in charge of administration of that and I'm glad it's over.
We just have 7 days of school left and although I have a huge list of house projects to get done this summer, generally I do those in the mornings and spend my afternoons quilting! I have had massive amounts of yardwork to do (and still do, trying to hire help, but having difficulty with that). I also made a weekend trip to visit my daughters, grandkids and sisters. It was a lot of fun watching my grandson play t-ball and my granddaughter in a dance recital at age 3!
Now to some things I have accomplished, or tried to anyway!
