Well Hello There and Good Morning!
The good news is that I slept oh so much better last night. Much, much better. The bad news is that I did not get my Shingrix vaccine yesterday. Long story of insurance woes - on the phone for too long with my insurance company and then on the phone for way too long with my benefits department. I'll spare you all the gory details, but I am rescheduled for the vaccine this morning at 9:15. Fingers crossed that it happens.
Yesterday afternoon I was finally able to settle on a location for Kevin's meeting at the end of August. Now I'm just waiting to hear back from him so that I can finalize plans with the resort. Sometimes it is like herding cats.
And, speaking of cats I've had to have some serious talks with Mabel. She has been killing birds left and right...leaving the "gifts" on our patio. I know it is only natural, but it breaks my heart to see adult doves, baby cat birds and even a young downy woodpecker. Survival of the fittest and all that, but I don't like it. Once again I was telling her to focus on mice and voles and moles. Honestly I don't like seeing them dead either, but I consider them pests. This morning Mabel was loudly meowing on the patio roof (who needs an alarm clock?) - I guess she was bragging or exclaiming that she had listened to me because when I came downstairs to let her in, lo and behold there was a dead mouse on the patio (and no birds). Now, if only she could be trained to keep the deer out of the flowers!
All of this brings us to Tuesday Morning and a TNT update. The Simply Live sampler by The Primitive Needle is coming along very nicely.
All of the Primitive Needle designs are now OOP (out of print) and difficult to find. So, if anyone is interested in this pattern please let me know. I don't think I've ever stitched a pattern more than once, and there is no reason to hoard patterns I'm not going to stitch!
Time to pour another cup of coffee and check on the deer in the back yard. Have a wonderful day!
