Tuesday

Aha!  Got myself going again ... working on a big stack of 9ps, aiming for 140-some blocks.  So far the plan is rusty-red scrappy, and we'll see where it goes from there.

We had Dad down the hill for his appointment with the orthopedic surgeon today.  He got an all-clear as far as the hip fracture healing, so now it's just a matter of him regaining his strength and becoming responsible for himself again.  Sigh.  It's been a long couple months.

The coyotes have been soooo active this week.  I see them trotting along the road in car headlights and hear them howling and yelping outside all night long ... which means the dogs are barking and fretting all night long too.  They usually stay up on the ridge above us, so they must be reorganizing for autumn :)

GRATITUDES

1.  Rye toast
2.  The aspens are turning gold
3.  Sitting on the back porch watching the brilliant moon rise

Love your 9 patches. Red scrappy is one of my favorites.
