Hello world!

What has this absent blogger been doing these days?  Focusing on DD Claire and her end of the year graduating senior activities, gardening and painting, with a little stitching in between.

It doesn't take too long to post so why the delay?  Because I am a born procrastinator!!!  Try as I may, I never quite seem to get beyond that.  At least the most important things get done but procrastinating can be a real brain drain. If you are like me, you'll know exactly what I mean.

Melissa, I was hoping the friendship sampler would be done by the end of April, but I didn't make it, and when May came upon us, there were fewer nights that I took up the needle.  It may be years before you get this traveling chart back!

Lovely daughter Claire and her date David ready for prom

Newly painted green walls in the sun room

The walls change color constantly in this room depending on the time of day and the angle you view the wall.  Maybe not quite how I imagined it, but I still like it.  I've always wanted sage green walls somewhere in the house.

Lastly, the collection of party supplies for Sunday's grad party for Claire and her friend Shannon.  It's forecast to be a warm day, no rain thankfully.  I love a good party but hate to give them, so this is nerve wracking for me.  It's an open house for 100-200 kids (it's all those Facebook invites, so you never really know how many will show up).  Here's hoping that we will have enough food!!!

You know something?  Blogging actually does take a lot of time!  By the time I uploaded and edited photos, restarted my computer because Photoshop crashed, uploaded the photos to Blogger and added text, I think 90 minutes have passed.  Yikes!!!  Gotta go!
