Sunday

Would you believe we woke up to snow this morning?! And it's still coming down! We're just shaking our heads and laughing.

I planted my tomatoes outside just yesterday -- they're covered with plastic, so I hope they're going to be OK. More of this year's really extreme weather I'm afraid ... snow in late May is NOT NORMAL for here!!

***************
Our two working guys, Grady and John, spent the whole week sanding and sanding and sanding and sanding -- what tedious work! We're beginning to look like a Haunted House. They might start the primer coat on Monday or Tuesday, depending on the weather (!!!snow!!!) I want to see red paint, but probably not for another week.

I've been playing with the set of patriotic blocks. I made a few more and assembled them with alternating hourglass blocks. I hope to get the outer row (which finishes the tan squares) on the other three sides this evening. Then I'm thinking a navy border ...

GRATITUDES
1. New jeans -- smaller size -- woohoo!
2. The aroma of coffee brewing
3. A quiet weekend after a noisy dusty week

Freaky-deaky weather! I heard it snowed way up in northern CA too. Here on the coast we are just having lots and lots of wind. Ick.

I LOVE the setting you did for your patriotic blocks, just striking.

Hope some red paint joins wood soon :)

Oh my! I got AnnieO's wind, and it's HOT, HOT, HOT! 86.4 with 15mph winds and 10% humidity, lol. Sure is different from up atop your mountains to the Sonoran Desert! Sorry Jeanne, you can keep it. It's lovely but thanks for letting me SEE it.

Oh for goodness sake Jeanne - what's with that weather? I've just spent two days sitting watching the London Sevens Rugby Tournament in unbroken sunshine hotter than southern Europe - hotter than I can ever remember at this time of year in the UK - the weather's gone topsy-turvy!!!

I knew you guys were getting snow up there, we have had some weird weather down here in the lowlands today too, a little rain and hail in the morning and windy as heck now.

Smaller size jeans?? Lucky you.
We are having rain on rain. Not really cold, though. Just welcome.
