When Michael sat down in his chair tonight he did so with a satisfied sigh—tired by pleased with all he accomplished today. He cut some logs into firewood, laid another row of rocks around the front of the house and worked on his new landscaping project !
New landscaping project??? When we built this house on the edge of the little creek Michael wanted a bridge over the creek from the deck. I wasn’t in favor—there is nothing on the other side of the creek. But he persisted with he and his Dad building what I have always called “the bridge to nowhere.” Well, now it will be a bridge to somewhere. He has leveled a spot at the other end of the bridge, we will plant grass, build an arbor and add some comfortable seating. The dirt he is digging out is really nice, rich black soil—he is adding some to my poor garden soil, to the flowerbeds he had to dig out for the rock work and stockpiling the rest.
I wanted to do some embroidery on a quilt I am making—yesterday’s lesson helped a little with the learning curve and I started trying to decipher the rest of the story this morning. I spent about 3 hours trying to transfer designs from my computer to the USB stick which then goes into the sewing machine. Tried calling LoraLee, couldn’t get her, struggled a while longer before finally calling The Quilting Hen in Carter, MT where we purchased the machines. Within 2 seconds Patty had my designs on the screen of my sewing machine!! Amazing!! I’ve said it before and will say it again, The Quilting Hen knows customer service!
