I am back for a bit anyway. I just don't seem to be in the mood for blogging any more. Haven't been much in the mood for sewing either. I did get mom's Carpenter's Square pieced and have made good progress on hand quilting the center. I hope to have it done by the end of the month, but that will depend on how much gardening I get to do. It has been a very cold spring here so far. We planted potatoes, onions, peas, lettuce, turnips, spinach, kale, and radishes on March 19th. Then we got several inches of snow on the garden. So far, nothing is up. I am just hoping the seeds haven't rotted. Of course no asparagus is up yet either, so the soil may just be too cool.
I caught up with the Back to Square One Medallion Mystery during the first week of March. That is a very good thing, because I then took the flu or some sort of virus. I was really sick with a temperature of 102.4 off and on for 2 weeks. I have not coughed so much in a long time. My stomach got sore from all the coughing. I spent most of those two weeks in bed. I just wanted someone to put me out of my misery. LOL I always hurt all over when I have a fever. Thankfully, I am ok now. Of course once I was feeling better, I just had to push it and ate a sandwich. I know I can't eat gluten, but I did it anyway. For four days my knees hurt so bad that I could not bend them without catching my breathe. It finally got my attention. I must eat gluten free. Kevin found a gluten free bread recipe on the net for me. It isn't too bad. I said he found it on the net. That isn't quite right. LOL It is in a recipe book he purchased for his Kindle. I then purchased it for my Kindle. I think it only cost me about $1.28. It is called 'You Can Eat This: 22 Gluten Free Comfort Recipes' by Tam Linsey. I haven't tried any of her other recipes, but the bread is a winner.
We are hoping spring has finally sprung. I have cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, and brussel sprouts that desperately need to go into the garden. I am going to start hardening them off today. I only have room for 2 trays of plants under the light, so my tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant have been put on hold. I hope to get them planted today. I'll just sit the cold hardy plants on the counter at night for now. I got my hair cut last week. Then I gave Kevin a nice short haircut on Saturday and he cut Buddy's hair. Our poor little Pom gets way too hot with all that hair. He looks kind of pitiful right now, but his hair will grow out. LOL So we are all styling for spring. (grin)
Here is the center of my Back to Square One Medallion Mystery Quilt....
Well, I guess this is enough for today. Thank you for visiting. Please come again. Have a wonderful day.
