The Wave

My worktable is cluttered

with

embroidery floss, a phone and a cup of diet Coke.

I have a project planned.

There is a piece of ART that My Larry adores.

It is a wood block piece, by  Hokusai.

For years, he has chosen things {journals, t shirts, mugs}

with the famed  WAVE on them.

Last summer, we had the privilege of seeing

the Hokusai exhibit at The British Museum.

It was an amazing exhibit.

Ancient wood block pieces that stunned the senses.

Fast forward to this summer.

We were at the beach

and I went to the tiny quilt shop in Kapaa.

{it is am awesome shop}

Yes. The Wave appeared again. On fabric!

I bought 4 panels, and promised Larry a twin size quilt

to use as a throw as the Texas weather

became cool.

I am looking forward to making  a quilt for Larry.

As the country braces to fight hurricane Florence

My thoughts and prayers are with

This Brand New Week

On Friday,

we picked Matilda up and took her on an adventure.

We saw the movie, Paddington Bear and then played the

afternoon away at  Dave and Busters

She spent the night at The Cottage.

The next day, Saturday,  she helped Larry feed the birds.

The book is in German. Now we must translate it!

Matilda was a  perfect guest and our time went to fast.

Sunday, My Larry scrubbed the kitchen floor.

How wonderful is that?

Today is rainy. I will work on the auction quilt…..and make soup.

Last week, I was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes.

I take medicine and test my hemoglobin numbers every .

I have been walking 3 miles 5 times a week….and  eating better.

Larry threw the M&M’s that were in the candy jar…..into the trash

and he is behind me 100%.

It had been a long eventful week.

I am looking forward to quiet time piecing the special auction quilt,

and exercising at the  indoor track.

May your day be one filled with quiet, reflecting  moments too.

{and exercise!}

Ok, now  I must go dice up that acorn squash!

Love you.
