An Evening With Our Quilt Group
March 22, 2016

This year my amaryllis plants have all decided to bloom at once.  That makes for a beautiful showing but it doesn't last long.  I have enjoyed them.  This pot had 10 blooms.  One broke off in the wind and I brought it in the house.  The other pot had about 8 blooms, but 2 or 3 have already died.

This morning I got up before Ron left for work, and I actually made it to the office by 9:30.  BUT... I was so sleepy from an allergy medication, that I put my head down on my desk and dozed off and on as Ron took care of customers.  About noon he asked if I wanted to go home and I said, "YES!"

At home, I did some house cleaning, reading, fixed some lunch, filled bird feeders and ponds, but could not go to sleep.  I took time to take a few photos of the plants when I got home from the office.

House work is a never ending job.  I kept picking up one item and then seeing a dozen more that needed to be put away, or I would clean one small area and see 5 more that needed cleaning.

The quilt group all came except Mom.  Carmen said Mom was too tired.  Carmen finished her first quilt top.  I had given her a stack of squares when she first started coming to the group, and she has worked hard on this quilt.  She has done a great job - especially with the language barrier.


  1. Glad you're feeling better. Tell Carmen her quilt is "muy bonito" and I am very proud of her!

    1. She did a very nice job and I am so proud of her for finishing it. It has been a challenge with the language differences, but it is done!
