I had Mela Friday night again! It is a joy to take care of her, a good little baby. Took her to my quilt show meeting then to Ian's 16th birthday lunch at Quaker Steak & Lube. Melissa & I were able to have a few hours of shopping time, ending with an excursion to Uncle Billy's Tuesday Morning store. She had never been. I love that store...and the family discount is appreciated. I picked up the large white cutting mat for $23!
Deal of the day.
The studio is coming along. I need to get the glossy trim paint now. What to do with the floor? Thinking. Loving it so far!
"Deployment" is on the floor in front of me. I have place a sample square with a red oil artist stick marking and a tangle of red thread under the soldier overlay. The oil stick stands out. I am leaning towards using that to denote the days that things happened on those days in Michael's deployment. This includes rocket fire, mortar fire, a flip down a mountain in a truck and rolling over and IED wire that didn't detonate.
I have learned:
- I like this song. "Royals" by Lorde. catchy tune.
- Michael graduated from Air Assault School Thursday. He has wings for his uniform.
- Something is afoot. Netflix is not streaming well, my laptop is super slow. ugh.
- Ian, my nephew is 16. He can learn to drive. OMG.
