If I had more imagination (and a few more cups of coffee), I might try to play some prank on you. Instead, you'll just have to settle for this image. It's shaping up to be a slow day. We had a lovely day of sunshine yesterday, but we're back to the gloom today. Mike is under the impression that tomorrow will be nice. We're both itching to get out and clean the greenhouse. The tomatoes aren't quite big enough to be out on there yet, but it would be nice to have the space ready for them.
This being April, it's the month Mike retires! Yay! It's getting closer and closer. Last night, I reminded Mike that we are taking a trip in about six weeks. We're going down to Pahrump, Nevada. For his retirement not-a-party, we're celebrating with him taking a 3-day course at the Spring Mountain Driving School.
It's something he's wanted to do since he was a teenager, and so it seems like a good way to celebrate his retirement from 39 years of engineering. We visited the last time we were in Death Valley. If you're interested, you can read about it at this blog post from last year. When we visited, there were RV spots available for our use. Now they've done some construction and taken out some of the spots. The remainder are already spoken for. Instead, they'll give us a place where we can park and plug-in. The kitties will be with us, and so we'll need to be able to use our RV. Since it won't be a designated spot, they're also giving us the use of one of their condos. Very accommodating, I'd say.
As for yesterday's sewing, I finished up the 6th block for It's Raining Cats and Dogs.
When I work on this again, I'll be doing this block for the Kitty Hotel.
The afternoon was so nice yesterday, and Smitty was chomping at the bit to get outside. With the bobcat hanging around, he's only allowed out with us these days. I noticed the flowers on the daphne are opening.
These red and yellow tulips are looking so pretty right now. There are a few other colors coming up, but these are the only ones that have opened.
Today I want to catch up on the Solstice Challenge. I'll be doing a block for the vernal equinox this time around. Also, the next clue for the Welcome Home small quilt challenge is out, and so I might get to work on that too...it's 12 little 9-patch blocks. Don't know if I'll do them all at once, but I'd like to get them started. Also, I'll start working on the next five hobo quilt blocks.
What's on your agenda for this Saturday?
