The Numbers Have it!
I have several things I need to work on this week, the Asterisk quilt being one of them. I need to get it to the top stage at least. I am hoping it can get further than that, but it may not make it by the River City meeting.
And I need to at least start on that Challenge quilt. You won't believe what I pulled in the bag. Me! The most modern person in the room. I get the least modern fabric in the room. I am going to need help that one for sure!
In preparation for retirement, Frank has been making some bold strides. He bought a computer and I made him get the Geek Squad support package on it since I refuse to get frustrated with him trying to help him understand what he doesn't know and I don't know. Now he can just call the Geek Squad 24/7 and he can be polite and they can be polite and they can have a sweet fest all night now with each other whilst they figure out his computer!
The other thing is to get Netflix. And to practice, we are binge watching our first program. OJ Simpson Trial.
It took us a while to figure out how to get the controls to work. And we still have our moments.
The weather across the nation was bad for most of the weekend. Ours was Saturday. We had a tornado nearby between Carrie's house and ours. No one was hurt.
This is where the flood waters came up from. You can see it is clear and nearly dry, so we are safe! Barb made Dale go out and check it twice during the storm. The rain was coming down so hard you could barely see the trees.
Temperatures fell to 38 last night and will again tonight. It
is almost May!
About 4 1/2 inches of rain fell in 45 minutes. Then for the rest of the afternoon we had another 1 1/2 inch on top of that. We were never in danger, but the street in front of the house did have standing water. Something we have not seen before. I am guessing it is because of the 4 inches in the 45 minutes.
After the weather cleared we were able to get to Denham Springs and spend a few minutes at the Artist Reception for the Juried and Emerging Artists Exhibition at Livingston Parish Art Council.
Here is my piece called Speechless.
Don't you love to see your work hanging in a gallery somewhere!
