I was all prepared to talk about how busy the weekend was, as an excuse for not having written this post yet. But in all actuality, I spent a good bit of Saturday watching Dr. M do work around the house. So I could have written my post then. The plain truth is that I had better things to do, like watch Dr. M work and play on my iPad.

My brother & his wife have started coming to my church. Today we went out afterward for lunch. Nice!

It was a two glasses situation.
This is block number 16 in my first colorway. This square was a LOT of fun to make – and each one is so different because of color placement (or lack of colors). I have to admit though, that this picture makes my eyes cross because sometimes the bobbles pop out & other times they look like dents in the square. Optical illusion!

This female spicebush swallowtail loves our impatiens.
Your weekly furniture – office chairs in a variety of colors.

This is a lesson in camera settings – Dr. M went out to take pictures of flowers (see below) and saw this red-spotted purple butterfly. It wouldn’t hold still & the camera wasn’t set up for motion – but I like the shadow effect anyway. The skipper butterfly on the other hand stayed put, so that picture is pretty good.
Here are the aforementioned flowers.
And block 16 in my second colorway.

My crazy desk at work. I often have paper everywhere, including on the keyboard. One of these days I’ll come up with a better system. Ha!
Pearl crescent butterfly. You can’t tell, but it’s tiny.
I had to laugh at the difference in mall walking & mowing this time of year. Our grass is SO THICK and almost always damp, so I have to mow VERY SLOWLY. It’s more of a (very loud) walking meditation than cardio exercise.

Morning glories and a surprise azalea! We didn’t really realize it, but they are called “Encore” for a reason. Fun!
Block 16 in my 3rd colorway. You’ll have to wait until next week to see the 4th one. I know that makes you very sad. Ha!

Dr. M’s Saturday project – putting this thing together. I’m so excited! I’ve been using a Tony Little Gazelle for YEARS. It has been great at helping me get more steps in my day, but not so great at cardio. Now that my hip is fixed (hallelujah) I’m ready to up my fitness game.
Speaking of my hip, its year anniversary was this week. I can’t believe that a year has already passed, and I can’t believe how good I feel. I have my final follow-up appointment next week – which will just be a lot of gushing on both sides (“You’re doing so great!” “I know! Right?”). Well, I’m off to use my new treadmill. It has built in speakers – I plan to plug my phone in & listen to the audio version of The Martian for the eleventy-seventh time. Do you have anything fun planned for your evening?
