Monday Goals

Monday, May 2, 2011
I haven't fallen off a twig, I just haven't been near a WiFi spot.  There is great WiFi at the Library, a separate room with tables and handy electric outlets--that's where I am now.  

These fellows are busy staking out territories.  One male is busy most days sitting on the side of Ric's or my vehicle--fighting with his reflection in the rear view mirrors.

Its still chilly, I have had the heat on until this afternoon.  Night time temps are only in the 30's to low 40's.  I'm toasty warm at night--I have an electric blanket.  I volunteer T-Th-Fr this week.  Then I am heading home for a few days.  I HAD planned to maybe plant my garden, but we're still having rain and I doubt the tomatoes would grow much in the cold soil!  

State of the Stash--I bought 4 yards of white for background this week.  

4 yards in this week
14.75 yards In YTD
10.25 yards Out YTD
Stash Increased by 4.5 yards


I did work on my Cherry Tree blocks this week, but didn't finish any.  

For next week--

  1. Work on Beyond the Cherry Tree blocks
  2. Start the next round of Blue/White swap blocks
  3. Work on Melissa's navy blue/white quilt

Ken is chomping at the bit getting ready to do the farmer thing.  I'm not expecting too much in the next week or so--the fields are still plenty wet.  "Compost" needs to be hauled on the garden, and the deck needs to be stained(?) preserved (?) this year.  

I miss reading blogs, but internet at the camper is iffy at best.  I just couldn't justify spending the money for something that worked once in a while.

It would be cool if you get to see a Cardinal nest!

Internet is iffy here in GA too althgh I can go over to the fitness club. Once we make a decision about where we're going to be, the first thing I'll do is get Internet hooked up here.

According to Accuweather there's a frost advisory for tonight (Mon.) so I hope you had your electric blanket cranked up.

We'll soon have Telebeep wireless Internet here. I don't know if it'll be any better but at least Frontier will have some competition.
