Friday's Post on Saturday

Sorry Folks.  I was not able to post anything yesterday because I was without power for most of the day.  In the afternoon I was starting to wonder if I should eat all of the ice cream in the freezer before it thawed, but then the power came back on.  Oh, well, it would have been a delicious dinner.

I once again volunteered at DD's school last Thursday for grade 1/2 art.  We made owls.  This was a project that I had made about 30 years ago with the kids in my class.  The owls turned out great.  I think that was my last volunteer day.  The classes have been sorted out and redistributed, so that there are not as many students in each class.  DD will be teaching grade 7/8 students all day and she won't need me for art any longer.  Maybe I will do something else at the school.  I don't know yet.

I have been working on my La Passion this week.  Got the blue hexies attached around the outside.  They're not completely stitched down, but I will work on it later.  I love how this is turning out.

On Thursday evening I went out for dinner with DD and a couple of staff members from her school.  It was nice to get out and not have to cook dinner.  DH ate left-overs.  Afterwards I invited one of the staff members over to see my backyard.  She loves plants and has wanted to come over and see my garden for a long time.  This lovely patch of Fall Crocuses were in bloom.

Then yesterday my DD dropped by after school to bring me this wonderful little plant.  It is a gift from the teacher who was here on Thursday.  She dug it up from her garden and gave it to me.  Isn't she terrific?  It\s called 'Streptocarpus'.  I have never owned one of these plants before.  I love it and hope I will be able to keep it growing for a long time.  It reminds me of an orchid.

It is raining today.  It's cold and wet and a wonderful day to stay indoors and sew.  Mimi thinks I should take a nap. She has offered to move over if I want to sleep with her. Okay, Mimi.  I think I will do that.

Have a Great Weekend!

I am linking up with Hexies on Fridays at A Quilting Readers Garden.

Flowers flowers and more flowers.
I have a lot of Jerusalem Artichokes this year.
And Mimi does not look like she is going to move over soon.
Glad she is ok.
