Yesterday was D -Day. D for delivery! And while I was out traipsing around, I received an e-mail from that UPS supervisor who is now my superhero. He was following up! You could have knocked me over when I saw that. He said he saw the package was marked as received, and could I verify that. And indeed it was received!! What a huge relief, and what a nice gesture from the UPS guy to follow up!!
Well, I'm a wee bit behind again this morning, but no fault other than my own. I had to prep the homework presentations for this morning's presentations. I'm almost done, and well, the girls will have to wait for their walk today as I was out yesterday, so I did not get done what I was supposed to. It's a bit of a challenge to have visitors and keep up with the workload.
Never mind that partway through the morning, I zipped off to pick up my MIL. DH was going to go, but he's a bit busy with work of his own, and well, his work trumps mine (strictly monetarily, of course!), and I'm OK with that. So I picked up my SIL, M came for the ride, and we were all good. She seemed her same feisty self, given that we were having a discussion about getting married. The fact of getting married religiously rather than civilly to appease parents. Yep--- the world moves in strange ways. And why are appearances still so important to people?
Anyway, it doesn't matter; she is home and seems fine, so that is one less thing to worry about.
Then we bundled ourselves in the car - Bear, M, Mattie, and I and we were off for an adventure.
Wait -- I saw this on my walk in the morning. Hmmm -- what kind of funny business is going on here? I hope they are married! Whatever it is, I don't want to know.

And perhaps we'll have another adventure today. That depends on them. It's a challenge with all these people around to plan things. And I swear we had an entire closet of clothes in the car - just in case. Of what? Several years ago, M and I traveled around Europe, but I don't think we could travel together now. I'm a minimalist, and she is ...............well, I don't think she knows what that word means. But it's all in fun.
I'll take advantage of the time that she is here. The quilts and quilting can wait - nothing is more urgent than family. Sorry!
On that note, I'm out of here and will attempt to get the last bit of homework done.
Do you think the girls will even notice that we don't go for a walk? Probably not, as Murphy is hanging right by my side - waiting!
Several things to note -- the Trendtex Challenge is now online and open for BIDDING. So have a look, there are some neat pieces and good prices. It's an auction, so be sure to check this out.
Here are the Zoom links for the Virtual Retreat that starts tonight at 6 PM. It's getting cool out there, so no need to be out gardening!!!! Check it out and say HI.
