Sorry if the blog has been a bit dull lately. The fish were all safe this weekend. We came home empty handed. It rained while we were down there, so I spent most of my time in the car with my book, & took a little nap.
Sunday I worked all day. We had 1 case scheduled & 8 more added on. Today I got over-staffed, so it's a good thing I got all that time & 1/2 on Sunday!
Yesterday it was cool & rainy. It has been that way most of this summer so far, so we went to the movies. We saw Iron Man. We both enjoyed it. I liked it better than The Incredible Hulk. Then we went & saw Wall-e. I loved it, Warren thought is was boring. He hares robots for some reason. Always had, so I was lucky he was willing to set through it for me. I thought it was cute. I loved R2D2 & 3CPO also.
Today the sun came out. It was warm enough to open windows even. I had my lunch out on the deck, but spent a few hours on Lily, continuing on my threadpainting with the UV Sun sensitive thread.
There are 2 colors on here so far. Blue & green. When I get it all finished I'll take a picture in the sun.

Here are a couple of close ups.
This afternoon, our contractor friend Richard came over & helped Warren pull our well & replace the pipes.
We had to rent this machine.
The well was only 160 feet deep. We had thought it was 240, so that was a pleasant surprise.
They got it all done & we have water running without air spitting at us FINALLY! No more getting cold air blowing on us half-way through the shower!
The water in the picture is a little dusty. They stirred it up putting the pump back down, but it has since cleared.
I also moved the kitchen cabinets out of the guest room so there is room for guests again. I hope to have my grand girl Darian come for a couple of weeks in August.

hahaha its great to see the father-in-law on your blog I yelled to Richard that there was pictures of his dad on the internet and he came running.

I just love your deck.
I'm going down to have lunch with Dad shortly. Haven't seen him in awhile due to his trip to Canada. Then I'm going to stop and see Jeannie. She made it home yesterday. Vicki made a prayer shawl in the 'color of cancer' for me to give to her. Did you know each kind of cancer has it's own color? Like breast cancer is pink.........!

Deb, thanks for the welcome. I have been blogging for a couple of years now on different blogs. I like this one a lot better than most.

Yes you did show me your first ever quilt. I like photography a lot. I am always taking pictures of my moms cats and mine too. I also do pics of flowers other than that not much else cause they all turn out bad. But I am still doing them as well.

As for the books, don't know what I'm going to do about that. I am still fiddling around with those.

I had not seen your deck before! Incredible!

And I also remember, "well" problems. pulling the pump, only to have it not come up - oh my. Good that you had yours repaired, and working again.

I love your "fabric" your making. Are you connecting the threads? I don't understand when you wash the stabilizer away will the designs be connected?
Warren did a beautiful job on the deck.

Steph said...

That is Papa Richard. Stephanie showed me the pictures. Judy

What lovely thread painting. I look forward to seeing it in the sun.
Glad you have good water again. Great machine!
