Have been tatting. I made this bookmark for a Forum challenge. It is Jane Eborall’s butterfly pattern with beads. I’m making a second in very colorful thread. This blue reminded me of those very fragile looking blue butterflies that I haven’t seen very often. They are a solid, pale blue and you can almost see through their wings.
Just returned from Tucson and a trip to my Nephrologist. Holding my own and still at stage five. On April 8, I will have surgery for a fistula in my right arm, it takes about 2 months for the vein to ‘bulk up’ and then I can begin to have dialysis when I really need to start treatment. Hopefully, we’ll be moved by then; and, it looks like husband wants to move to East Sacramento (or Carmichael, Fair Oakes, Folsom) area. I’m all, “Wither thou goest.” LOL Have been for 55 years!
Grand daughter is due to have her baby by the end of May...She (the baby) weighs over 3 lbs now! And is very photogenic. Her Mom will go to El Paso in April where her Mom will join her. Then Daddy will move everything else to El Paso in June, after he graduates. A lot of excitement on the ridge; and, I’ll drag the old oxygen line into the kitchen and begin wrapping items to pack. I can do that much ~ I think!
Just before we left for Tucson, terrible 1,700 acre multiple fires began in Tyrone (about 5 miles south of Silver City); and burned up to the south of the town and around the golf course. Twelve families lost homes. The flames were 20 feet and the wind was blowing 60 miles an hour.
This is where the fire began, evidently someone tossed out a cigarette.
I’ve shown photos from my house; well, this is looking towards my house ~ across the city.
Our home is directly in the middle, up the road on the ridge. If you click on the photo you can see it up close, with its blue roof!
And, looking across Shadow Road, up the ridge; we are home! We stopped to pick up our mail. The windows are those of the guest room you’d stay in if you visited. A nice view south and east from Indian Hills. Below the window is a lovely patio encircled by a low stone wall and a long banco for sitting, just below the parking area. This is where we have barb b cues, yum! We will miss our Chef Omar and his gas grill!
However, those fires reminded me that we really need to have the near trees cut back and trimmed along with the gamma grass. Remove fuel from possible fires.
