The Rain Drops

I must have 25 UFOs in my quilting room...but last night I just had to start something new.
I love to get fabric in the mail..never enough, says the hoarder.
Online I found a two charm pack bargain..added a few of my own cuts and started this last night
A no-think quilt is the scrambled nine-patch...here we go....
 Today, there was a surprise explosion...in my fragile heart..
I went to have passport photos for renewal and I cried. Nice picture that will be for the next 10 years!
Went to have the screw tightened on my glasses and when the girl asked how was my day..I cried.
Evidently I have a loose screw myself..and in public, no less!
This is going to be a long haul!
 
I need to thank you all individually for your nice comments.
I need to send out some thank you notes for the funeral,etc.
I need to take a shower.
I need to read my new WIdow to Widow book that Bonnie sent me.
Did I fertilize the rose bushes?
Did I forget to eat??  No chance on that one!!!

My bottle tree is supposed to ward against evil spirits.
This tree and I are going to have to have a talk!!
On my desk sit 12 certified death certificates for Himself...reminding me of what I do not want to know.
Did you know that people are being diagnosed with ALS every day...this horrid disease.
It is unbelievable.
We are fine with money now...but thank you Katie.
The death of Mr. O'Quilts took care of that..
At what cost....??
The happy note...always need that one...My sister came over to sew with me.
And, my daughter did the ALS walk in the rain.
Much love to all of you.
xxoo

Diane -- this is from a Jackson Browne song that I love that reminds me of you and Fintan and you as you miss him. A beautiful song that will remind me of him forever --
You wait for the tears to fall but they won't
You think you should know what to say but you don't
Here at the break of dawn
The world moving on -- without him.

He is inside you, I know, and will give you strength.

It's so good to see you here, describing a bit of normalcy (quilting) in your day. I keep thinking of a line from Theodore Roethke's poem "The Awakening" ~ "I learn by going where I have to go."
Much love, Diane

I hope the bottle trees shakes it's branches and wards off evil spirits. I think you can leave things till later. And you're allowed to cry as much as is needed, and wherever.
