Excuses not to blog

Hello all of my dear friends and family, or who ever is reading this blog. I would like to list some excuses reasons I have, why I haven't been blogging very regularly lately.

1. I had to go out for supper with Cindy and her friends for her birthday. The Hotel Florida serves the best pizzas, btw.

 2. I have to take cool pictures of my crazy cat.  Why would he want to sleep in a bowl? I don't know:)

 3. I have to watch things grow. We have been blessed this summer's end with good rainfall, and everything is growing at once.

 3 1/2. I have to watch these beautiful cucumbers grow as well.

4. I have 2 new bunnies to take care of. In the picture you can see the new female rabbit on this side of the pen. Skip-bo is looking over the middle part to see what's happening.

5. I have to help Brianna with her homework. She has a lot of trouble with her math, so that takes a good chunk of my afternoons. She's forth grade now.

  6. I have to can the cucumbers too. We're harvesting about 3 kg every second day.

7. I was sewing some things for a friend of mine. I didn't take any pictures of the clothes I made, because I didn't know how she thought of me posting it. There were two dark blue satin dresses for her little girls, one white/gray lacey top and a dark blue skirt with lace inserts for her. Her sister is getting married next week, and I think they will all look very spiffy, if I may say so myself. I'm just getting used to sewing that much again, and it has caused me some neck and back pain already. But I love sewing anyway!!!

So, there are some of the things going on in my life right now. What I want to do in the next few weeks is, get our guesthouse ready for my husband's cousin. He's coming here for Easter from Germany and always stays at our house. I'd like to sew new curtains for a few rooms, new sheets and maybe a simple quilt. Lets see how far I get.

Thanks for being patient with me, glad you could drop in and see me. If you need me, I'll be in my sewing room...
or chasing my cat with the camera:)
