“I hate being ill…..”the gathering” update..

I have not been feeling well since Sunday….we had a nice day out on the boat with the kids and girl friends, until I tried something I never have done before…Looking back my Husband should have stopped me…but anyway…for some hair brained reason I thought maybe I could “wake board”.  Like snowboarding on water…the first attempt at getting up on the board I drank half the lake, and water was forced in my mouth, up my nose and some gross things were happening…after the second attempt, I pulled something in my right butt cheek…so at least then my common sense over came my pride and I decided I must be too old for this…so since this episode, I have a nasty cough, dripping sinuses and I have been icing my butt cheek a couple of times a day…the cheek is healing and doesn’t hurt as much… I only get a little sign once in awhile that I did something…but I cannot sleep…i carry a huge flour sack towel around for my “kleenex” because I have used everything in sight…Carole has come over and brought me some benedryl so maybe now I will sleep…I know I need to machine quilt some of these little quilts but it is so hard to do so with how I feel…so I have been piecing and will show you on what a little later this week…a lot of work has been done this week around here…too much going on and not enough alone time…

the a** breaking boat...

Here are some photos of the Gathering…it is hard to show much but I will narrate the photos….We have finished the master bathroom, and all the bathrooms…on the first and second floors…still need to to basement ones.  It is all painted except to be touched up.  The carpeting is in upstairs.  Ceiling fans need to be hung and some trim put back on where we removed all the closets in each bedroom.  The wood floor is put in as well as all the lighting on the first floor.  The kitchen appliances along with another prep sink and new tile backsplash are done.  The washer and dryer are in but the dryer hose needs to be rerouted.  The addition is started and passed its first rough in and electrical inspection.  The roof is on, the gutters and now the siding…Rick my cousin who is doing the remodeling for me is on vacation this week…so nothing is happing but the siding…which is being done by another crew… The house will have dark gray shutters and burgundy door.

    Oohhh, I’ve been so tempted to try wakeboarding this summer, then a college friend of ours whacked her face going down- she’s fine, but lots of blood! and now you! No way, I’m staying safely in the boat! Let your boys have the fun, ok?! The retreat looks so wonderful! Hey, where’s all those quilts you’ve been buying?!
