Keeping Cool....Or Not
Whew....heat index of 110 F!!! Folks, I HATE hot weather. I have asthma, not bad, is bad; humid is AND humid...well, I am staying INSIDE. Thankfully, we have central air which I INSISTED on in the spring of 1991 when I was pregnant with Joey (one of my patient's noted to me that this HAD to be an unplanned pregnancy because NO ONE in their right mind would PLAN to have a baby in August). That was a very hot summer. I think this one is hotter. My elderly neighbor was complaining to me this morning that her a/c wasn't doing a very good job of cooling her tiny house off. I invited her to come over and keep me company. Of course, she declined (stubborn old wench...she IS a redhead...even if it's out of a bottle at this point). Then I asked when the last time was she cleaned the filter. ??CLEANED the FILTER??? She had no clue she was supposed to do this. Ok, Annie, you've had that unit HOW many years now?? (it's a window a/c that, for some reason, my eldest son is the ONLY one who can install it properly). She called back about an hour later and pronounced the a/c *fixed.* SIGH........

I don't know what I will do when she is gone. Sometimes she is frustrating; other times, infuriating; but she is always a character!!!

Oh...quilting...right. That IS what the blog is supposed to be about. Got all the basic line drawings of the horses on the "Dreams" quilt done. Now to embellish them a bit so they will show thru the silk gauze (or organza...still don't know which I will use)......only 8 working days until I go to Chicago to pick up my dad.....

Quote:Apples and Wine: Women are like apples on trees. The best ones are at the top of the tree. Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are afraid of falling and getting hurt. Instead, they sometimes take the apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. The apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along, the one who is brave enough & smart enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree. Now Men... Men are like a fine wine. They begin as grapes, and it's up to women to stomp the hell out of them until they turn into something acceptable to have dinner with.
