How does this keep happening? I just don't know...we got home late Sunday afternoon...the boys greeted us full of excitement for about 2 minutes and then went back to their beds and went back to sleep. At first I thought maybe they were giving us the cold shoulder for leaving them, and then after talking with our neighbors discovered that they had a wonderful time with the pet sitters, I think Zack even took a swim in the pool...he hasn't done that yet this year. It really made me happy that they were so content. We unpacked, started a load of laundry, had a quick dinner and both realized we were pooped. Monday
was my day with mom, and she had lots of errands to do...got home Monday late afternoon...I was pooped. Tuesday back to the gym, a week off and the stairmaster really got the best of me....and then somewhere I lost Wednesday. Thursday and Friday...here we are at Saturday afternoon. I did get a little sewing done...this month's blocks from Civil War Chronicles and my plan is that tomorrow I'll get Months 1-3 put together...I'll have a picture of that section tomorrow. I have absolutely no idea how to move this picture where I want it to be...sorry...I switched to the new editor and I'm not quite getting it yet. I also finished the top from the blocks that my friend gave me at our retreat in February...she had all the blocks done and all the alternate squares cut, I just had to cut the setting triangles and sew the rows together...I'll have a picture of that tomorrow too...promise.
Our trip was wonderful...we had the best time...The only thing we didn't get to do was our tour of the White House...it was supposed to be Thursday evening at 7:30...that just happened to be the night that they worked all night on the budget to keep the government open. No visitors in the White House...the President was meeting with Mr. Reid and Mr. Boehner at 7...our friend's daughter that had arranged the tour for us just felt so badly...we were disappointed but it was far more important that they get that taken care of. We saw everything we wanted to see and enjoyed every minute of it. I think we walked a hundred miles...LOL! The cherry blossoms were gorgeous and the daffodils, tulips and hyacinths were all beyond belief.
I'll be back tomorrow with some quilty pictures...If anyone can tell me what to do with these pictures I'll be forever in your debt...these pictures have been all over this post and I can't figure out a thing...HELP!
