Grab some cheese because there’s a whole lot of whine in this post! 🙂
I’m not whining about the green beans because I totally loved getting them and I love canning but canning 26 quarts and almost 36 (or so) pints in two days was a lot of work. I went to bed Wednesday and Thursday nights with every bone in my body aching. There have been a few nights in the last six months when I’ve gone to bed super tired and woke up for the first time about 9 a.m. I was so hoping that’s what would happen today. I didn’t have anything to do, nowhere to be. An Amber Alert came through on my phone at 4:16 a.m., woke me and I never went back to sleep.
Addie loves staying up late and sleeping late at my house and one of the first things she said to me was “Do we get to stay up really late?” Sure! Not much I wouldn’t do to make her happy so I hope I don’t fall asleep while we’re playing Clue tonight!
Obviously there was no cross stitching happening Wednesday or Thursday. Today I did laundry, washed the sheets on my bed and Addie’s bed. I couldn’t remember if I had washed them last time she was here and who doesn’t love clean sheets. I can’t really say anything else I accomplished except it wasn’t cross stitching or knitting.
No doubt I won’t get much done this weekend but spending time with Addie is what matters most so I’ll be happy to do whatever she wants to do and I can cross stitch next week.
