Foggy morning showing off the dew drenched spider webs.
We've had some needed rain but the wind has nearly blown us away! I guess we are getting our March winds a bit early. My yard looks the best that it has ever looked. It is perfectly trimmed and edged, mowed, the sidewalks and porches blown clean, and the beds and trees are mulched. They are coming back to put in some more plants and it will be even more beautiful.
I'm so pleased with the quilt top. Next, I need to make the back piece. Then for the batting, I have so many pieces of leftover batting that I am going to whip stitch the pieces together to make a piece large enough for the batting for this quilt. Hope to get this done this week.
I'm less than enthusiastic about SPQR by Mary Beard. She takes forever to say that they really don't know much about the earliest beginnings of Rome. Hope it gets better. In opposition to SPQR, Madison: A Biography by Ralph Ketcham just keeps getting better and better. I am now on the section where the states are having conventions to determine ratification of the Constitution. It makes me feel better about today's political turmoil to read how contentious the ratification process was. Lastly, I have a good fiction book in progress too. Secrets of a Charmed Life by Susan Meissner has me enthralled.
That's all the news from OakMeadows where the cats all nap in the sunshine and the people do too.
