On June 11 my Mom had major surgery, a left carotid endarterectomy.
Surgery went well, but it sure took forever. My years as a nurse seem to cause me great angst when it comes to those I love. My mind goes to the "what ifs." Reminder to self, I am not the one in control. So now almost three weeks later Mom is doing well, still a little tired, but that is normal. My Aunt Nita came to help out, what a lifesaver. The bond that sisters share is such a powerful love. My Mom is 86 and Aunt Nita will be celebrating her 90th birthday the end of July. Such amazing ladies. I love you Potratz girls!
Rocki and Ronda headed to McCloud to vendor for a Linda Ballard mystery the second weekend in June. Great weather, great ladies, great quilt, great accommodations, great town, great scenery and a world class teacher. What more could you ask for?
My husband took our son-in-law and grandkids deep sea fishing the third weekend in June. So Jen and I took great advantage of our alone time. With Ronda's help we quilted 6 quilts and pieced a bunch of new tops. Did I mention we laughed a lot?
Mark and I went to Quincy on June 21st. The Crazy Quilters of Quincy asked if I would be their speaker for June and bring a mini store. The women in that quilt guild are some of the kindest quilters I have ever met. Kudos to you crazy quilters of Quincy and thank you so much for your hospitality. Carolyn took us on a barn tour the next day. What a treat! Enjoy the pics.
So we have one more weekend left in June and we hope to work in our yard. Our son and his wife are coming for a visit and I don't want to do chores while they are here. Enjoy your weekend.
God Bless you all,
