I returned town midweek and did not even go to my sewing room until late in the week. To be honest, everything that has happened in the last couple of weeks has me down. First my daughter’s illness, the trip with weather, late/cancelled flights, sitting next to people who were insane (like the guy who claimed evil politicians were to blame for us sitting on the runway in a thunderstorm–I didn’t get it then, and I don’t get it now), or people who snore, or jam their seat back in my face right before takeoff. Whatever. I am almost totally convinced that the hospitals and doctors do not care about patients and the travelling public doesn’t care how rude they are.
They have started prepping the lot across the street for construction and I am waiting to find out what model house they are going to build there. As I mentioned, there are two builders in this neighborhood and the one across the street is being build by the “other” builder. Some of their houses are so ugly (my opinion). They essentially build a box (it’s cheaper to build a square box) then stick stuff on the front to try to make it look interesting. And sometimes on the top. A couple of them have dormer windows that appear to be there simply for show.
As I said, I did get a little sewing done. Actually I finished all the blocks for my son’s girlfriend’s quilt. Most of the fabric was cut before I left, but I did have to cut some squares for the remaining blocks, which amounted to about a half of yard.
