Things have been lousy around here. I can't actually mention what is going on, because the kids are dying of embarrassment. I have been spending mucho time washing and COMBING hair. I have washed and or bagged every piece of upholstered item in multiple rooms. Turns out you can hire a professional "picker" to come take care of this, I am on the cusp of doing it. It is outrageously expensive, but urchin number one has missed two days of school. I have never wanted a test to be passed so badly.
I escaped the infestation this weekend by going to DC. I got to take the White House Garden tour. It was a beautiful day. I spent all Saturday downtown seeing the sites. I did not see the new MLK monument, too crowded and too far off the mall for casual walking. I went to Eastern Market, which was a really wonderful area I had not been to. We walked the open air market and then strolled to the Capitol.
I have the idea for my October quilt. I was looking at my refrigerator quilts and reflecting on how quickly a year goes by - crazy.
I am off to do something new like go grocery shopping. Once again it is old mother hubbards cupboard around here. We are down to condiments and the gross ones at that.
