A busy week--- Monday Chelsey turned 18. We gave her shopping money and she made her first solo trip to Green Bay and Appleton with a girlfriend. The weather forecast call for snow accumulations of less than an inch, but the ended up getting considerably more, so at 6:30 Saturday night, We called and got her hotel reservations, so she ended up with quite an adventure. Monday Morning I left this on the kitchen counter for her. Eighteen cupcakes, 18 cans of pop, 18 sticks of gum, Heart Socks: because I decided it was better to wear your heart on your sock instead of your sleeve.... There were Strawberry Shortcake stickers because her very first birthday cake was of Strawberry Shortcake. I made a fabric Birthday Card. The gift bag contained gold earrings---now she won’t be borrowing ‘Mom’s’.
Long days at work,, the summation of my quilting is wishing over quilt pictures hung in front of my desk. But the weekend is ahead. I did complete February BOM stitchery and I’ve been appliquéing a couple of pieces a night on my Primitive Garden.
Don turns 46 today. Does not like birthdays--- but has tolerated Chelsey picking at him about it all week. We’re going out for supper tonight. Should be fun. Tomorrow we both have the day off. Chelsey is speaking in a neighboring town and I’m going to listen. Don is going to stay home and knock the major stuff on the house so we have a free weekend---
I feel like it’s my birthday----
Bad Weather found friends and family safe this week.
I survived Chelsey turning 18—Maybe I’m the one struggling, not her.
A weekend without housework….
