My son and a few others have mentioned that it's been a month since I last posted here at Prairiequilts. Sorry about that. Sometimes life just isn't conducive to blogging. It's like I tell my endocrinologist when I'm not doing what she feels I need to do, "Let's not confuse my noncompliance with ignorance." In other words, there are things I know I should do and things that I would like to do but this is the real world and life has a way of getting in the way. And its all good, just different. How's that for a completely nonsensical excuse? But I thought it might sound better than the same ole "I was busy" routine.
My oldest, Joe, and his wife, Laurie, were here for over a week in April. Having them here for a longer amount of time is just wonderful. Daniel- son #2 and Mary...um, "friend" of son #3, even got to come for a couple days so we had a great time. Guess what? Both of my clothes dryer doors stay closed without having to have anything propped up against them! How cool is that? Joe is very handy. It took him longer to find the parts than it took him to install them. So all my kids came for a visit and I'm zeroed in on my dryer doors working properly... well, you try jamming a baseball bat against a dryer door to keep it closed. It takes skill and lots of practice to make that thing stay wedged in place. So now I just shut the door and >Voila!< the door stays shut! Amazing! And it happens every day. All day. And we do a lot of laundry so it's a constant reminder that Joe loves me and wants to make things easier for me. So it isn't just a little thing, is it?

Believe it or not, I kept it brief. Tough to even begin to cover the goings-ons for a whole month. I still have quite a few quilty projects to show, but they'll keep. Have a great week and maybe...just maybe...I'll catch you on the flip side!
