June 1

How is it even possible that June 1 is already here?

 I was sad that Christmas 2017 was over and it's almost time for another one!! .

It's hot in eastern NC, with lots of rain so far this year.  I've actually enjoyed the rain because we planted a new tree and some new perennials, which has meant less watering from me.  I think most people are getting tired of all the rain and I've seen some horrible flooding on the news, some in my own state at my beloved Biltmore Village. 

I am now wrapping my thimble disk with duct tape

I'm still big stitch quilting on my flower garden quilt.  It's been a fun process, as there isn't much pressure to be perfect with these type of stitches.  I've moved my project from chair to chair, hoop to hoop, and room to room.... trying to find the perfect spot to quilt.  I finally found it last night when my husband offered me his Lazy Boy recliner. Yep!  my new quilting chair....the sweet spot.... I guess I need to buy my own lazy boy. 

So my daddy found himself a new dog.  Doesn't she look sweet?  Well she is a puppy and wilder than any puppy we've ever had before.  She has been very challenging for him, so much so that he asked me to find her a new home.  I "advertised" her on facebook, but there were no takers.  LOL  She must have realized what was going on, because she actually calmed down a bit over the past few days.  I don't think he really wanted to rehome her anyway, so we are hoping things will work out with his new love.

This picture is too cute not to share.  Annabelle loves her chickens.  She pets them, holds them, feeds them, and keeps a good eye on them.  She is definitely her mama's child.  I hope to visit them soon... it's difficult for me only getting to see her a few times a year.  I haven't seen her "in person" since before Christmas.... sniff sniff.  Does anyone else let their dogs keep them from traveling?  I know it's crazy, but I worry about them so much if I'm not here with them, especially now that they are older and need daily medication.  The things we get ourselves into..... ha!

We attended the annual family reunion on my dad's side of the family.  This is me and my sister in laws.  We decided we had not had a picture made together in over 20 years.... shame on us!

Hubby and I have been low carbing since Easter.  I had lost 10 pounds and was never hungry, which was a great thing.  But I got sick of eating that way.... this week I've had pizza, cake, and bread.... all I wanted.  And I've been hungry hungry hungry!  I guess we get back on the low carb kick next week.

Joy joy.... Until next time!
