It's that time of year again for Thunder in the Desert. It's not what you would think. We aren't getting major thunder and rain storms - which we would welcome just as much - however, drum corp international is here this weekend for another showing. Do you know how I know it's that time of year again? They are rehearsing and staying at the junior high and elementary schools surrounding my home. (one a couple blocks to the north and one a block to the west) I can hear them practice over and over and it's not helping my headache at all!!
I have been crashing out since I got back home from teaching a class in Andrews. The class was awesome and I think the ladies really enjoyed it. I taught my funky stars quilt and threw in a couple of other things, also. Anyway, about 7 that night I was nodding off watching television so I made myself get up and go to bed! That is how tired I was!! SEVEN O'CLOCK!!!!! I slept until about 11:30, played on the computer for a bit and went back to sleep until 11. Needless to say, I have slept a lot in the last couple of days. My body really took me at my word that it could crash after Saturdays class and it did!! I have been trying to fight off a sinus infection for over a week now and it may just now be clearing up after all the sleeping I have done (and taking NyQuil) for the past couple of days. Now I am ready to sew. I have a couple of quilts on the wall that need just a bit more to finish up. Once the tops are done I will photograph and post them. So, here is the list of quilty things to work on in the next couple of days:
1. Olive garden quilt - add a couple of borders
2. 16 patch quilt - finish sashings for last row and add borders
3. Blogger's BOM - make blocks 10 and 11 (due out tomorrow)
4. catch up and make all the blocks with the color challenge from 15 minutes play
5. decide on a layout for the color challenge blocks.
Now the squirrels are adding to the banging and noise by throwing down the green pine cones from the tree next door onto my porch roof which in turn causes McCallum to bark like someone is attacking the house. Which, if you think about it, is what the little squirrels are doing with their pine cone bombs.
Taking some Tylenol and moving on to the sewing room to block out all the excess noise with the sounds of sewing and a movie.
