I'm in the midst of packing, organizing and planning. I'm trying to take short moments to breathe. To look ahead and to look back.
We're planning lots of get-togethers with friends. Last meals together and quick book-club meetings before we leave Texas. Why do we wait until it's almost too late to spend quality time with friends?
I set aside a gift card I knew I needed to spend before we moved. I remember putting it in a safe place. Grrrr. Can't find it.
The Twelves have been going over the laser proofs of our book that will be published in the Spring. It looks so fantastic! All 144 quilts are beautifully photographed and presented. The written content that goes along with them is so interesting, thoughtful, honest and inspiring. I am very thankful that my connection to this fabulous group won't change, no matter where I live.
We're trying to eat all the random stuff in the frig and freezer. Last night was frozen talapia which was yummy. The rest of the week is not looking so good. Even though we'll be out of this house soon and in a hotel for a few days, I still need to buy more milk, cereal and bananas.
Claire played in a soccer tournament this past weekend. I think it got up to 104 degrees. That I will not miss. The fellowship and fun with families on the sidelines: that I will miss.
