Summer dialing down

End of summer 2

August is almost over. Autumn is beginning….not judging by the heat, though. Should get to 86º today! But it’s back to school time and the corn is sooooo tall and all the flower beds are full and abundant, a few leaves are falling, so it’s autumn. Should also be a time to get going on new quilting projects.

Ummmm–not so much.

There are a couple that I need to finish up. And some labels and hanging hardware to get on some others. But I have lots of household projects that I have let slide for far too long and that’s what I need to get done NOW!

I’ve had new paint for both my kitchen and my bedroom for months. Splotches of color on the kitchen wall, made while I was deciding, but not one inch of wall painted. Maybe I can pretend I’m doing a color study for a quilt!

End of summer 4

My garden shed has needed paint for a couple of years and fall is the perfect painting time…so I’ve been told. Maybe I should find out for myself. However, I can always find excuses. My husband hates to paint, but of course he would have helped on this—except he has a torn rotator cuff so he can’t! My son doesn’t like painting a lot either, but if I hope to get this done before the snow flies, I may have to ask for his help. Why am I the only one in this family that actually likes to paint? I hate asking people to help with stuff that I know they don’t like, but sometimes you just have to!

End of summer 3

Basically, I may not much time to write my blog or have much to blog about. That has never stopped me before, but it might this time.

I would really like to just say forget about it! It’s waited this long, it can wait a little longer. But I’ve said that too many times already. No more lame excuses. It’s time to get to work!

End of summer 6

Looking forward to a busy time!

    • You know, that outside work really can’t be done after dark, but I sure can sit on the couch and sew after dark!!! I guess I will have time to get some stitching done!

  1. Well, your husband has 2 arms, right? Set that man to work! And as for your son? Him too! We don’t want to have to wait weeks for your next quilting post. That would be so unfair.


    • Hubby has probable surgery upcoming and son WILL be pressed into use, I’m sure. I’d much rather have hubby cook dinner, which he can do with the bad shoulder and I hate to cook!!! I’m sure I will make time to sew, but it will be very slow progress.
