Sunday wrap up

Great dinner party on Saturday night: tapas and home brews at my daughter's home. The granddaughter came home with us for a sleep over and it was pancakes as usual for Sunday breakfast. She is really good at mixing now. She says she helps her mommy stir a lot. She slept right through the night on the floor - must have been that long soak in the tub playing with all the frog tub toys. She very politely asked me if she could play with "just one" of my new frogs. I asked which one and she pointed to one that was not fragile, so, of course, I agreed. So nice to have been asked first. Great progress.

On Sunday, the yard men moved heaven and earth for me. I'm working on a patio extension and there was an old stump that needed to be removed. They did a great job and moved some grass to a bald spot and placed the extra dirt in a valley near the back fence. Of course, it needs some tweaking by the designer - me, but the hard work is done. I have to come up with a nice surface treatment so we can put a table and chairs out there. No rush, summer is almost here and we won't be sitting out there in the heat.

My daughter and I went to a friend's house on Sunday. We were so intent on finishing her project of the mosaic table for her gazebo that I hardly noticed what everyone else was doing and missed most of the gossip.

Spent most of the rest of the weekend, typing frantically. Trying to smooth feathers and hold onto the reins of a runaway train of conversation.

The gold wire warp is calling to me. I have to pick up some supplies at Hobby Lobby and do the second prototype. The first is not working too well.
