|Red Rose in Bloom|
My cousin's phone call woke me up in the morning. She hung up before I could answer the phone, but I called her back when I was having my morning cup of tea. She was just calling to check up on me and to let me know that she called one of our other cousins in Sri Lanka to see how everyone was doing. They are unhurt, but, of course, still reeling from recent events.
Later, I took a short walk. Afterwards, I checked to see what's flowering in the garden.
|Climbing up the Lattice|
The red rose bush, climbing up the lattice by the front door is flowering. I hope it will continue to grow and cover the lattice.
One of the aeoniums my former supervisor gave me has sent up a flower stalk:

In the afternoon, I continued to sew the quilt, adding the sashings between the blocks. Eventually, production on the quilt top had to come to a halt because the Quality Control Inspector was testing the comfort level:
|Hard at Work?|
|Or Sleeping on the Job?|
I received my natural gas bill, today, and was pleasantly surprised to receive a $50 credit from a state clean air program, which reduced my bill to under $8!
Today, I was grateful for:
- Additional confirmation that the family in Sri Lanka were OK
- Roses blooming in the garden
- Being able to spend the afternoon playing with fabric (joyful activity for the day)
- A low monthly gas bill due to the state credit
- A working sewing machine
I will continue to work on the quilt top, tomorrow. I hope to finish sewing the sashing and attach the borders.
How was your Thursday? What are your plans for Friday?
