Once again, that pest Pearl, would not leave my side... I ignored her and went to the pool....lovely. Out of the pool, she was lurking by my car. I could not find a friend for lunch, and I certainly was not eating out with Pearl. Instead, I came home and went to bed!! Lynsey so wanted to go to Aldi. I so wanted to stay in bed. Alas, I gave in to Lynsey and we went food shopping. She picked out everything she thought we needed. Once again, I loaded the car wrong, so I was told to sit in the car while she put the groceries in the trunk in an organized way. At home, I was way too tired to help. The girl put all the food away.
Pearl insisted that we sit together at the computer, but I bested her by looking at adorable pink Halloween fabric online, and then watched the quilt show: Jinny Beyer, a Legend at the Quilt Show
Pearl must have given up by then as I just loved watching the above show. I was surprised to see that Jinny was born in 1941. Indeed she is a legend. Again, this legend, too, lives on a huge piece of property with quilt designs worked into the landscaping!!

Tonight I watched a story about Virginia Avery, quilt artist on the Quilt Show.I remember her. Born in 1912 and died in 2012 gave many the chance to know her. She was so amazing.
The Quilt Show (Cousin Ann gave me a subscription to this...I love it xo)
The bottom decoupage is using a used tea container. It now holds quilting supplies.

Our Aoife turned one and was in no celebratory mood....Way too hot in Ireland yesterday.
As for my Aoife, I have never seen her....sad but true and now she is one year old. Covid stole that from me...alas, we are all safe, so far.
Lynsey was asked to spar with the teacher last night at karate...she was pleased with herself. I was proud.
The children and I did some grocery shopping....They had it finished before I even had pulled out my list. And, they had it put away at home, before I even got out of the car.
Big big surprise. Lynsey told me tonight that I should not fret on the messy dirty house as it is coming together....and, surprise...she had cleaned the fridge, checking dates and organizing..OMG
Lynsey and I played canasta and ate ice cream. Dylan chatted with his friends on the computer.I exercised at the pool, the children got compliments...that always earns them a bonus chip.
My man is watching over us in the newly refurbished sewing room. The picture brings both comfort and tears.

Today was the sad day. My sister and the three children took Zoe for her final vet visit.
This morning before they left....saying goodbye to Zoe.
