Yesterday I visited my friend who has the lung cancer that metastasized to her brain. She has lost a lot of ground since I saw her last. Conversation was a bit awkward as she could not hold a train of thought to make a complete sentence or answer any questions I asked. I was so sad to see the decline, but was very glad to be with her for a while. I will make it a point to get over to see her more often. Even if all I do is sit next to her and hold her hand. I just want her to know, she is still loved by us. She loved the prayer shawl too.
Weather news........................we got one hellacious thunderstorm last night. We had gusty winds, lots of lightening, thunder that shook our house and then a gully washer of rain. We got .63 of an inch of rain. For us desert rats, that is a lot of rain to fall in 45 minutes time. Thankfully, we did not have any storm damage in our neighborhood. There were flash floods to the north of us and it took the lives of 9 people. So very sad. Flash floods are quite common in the desert. Especially with the forest fires we have had. There is nothing there to soak up the water when it rains and so it just flies down the mountains picking up all sorts of debris on the way down. Very dangerous stuff.
Also, looks like hubby does not go back to Vegas until the middle of August. So I have time to complete that sock, no problem. Although, I will say, I am on the heel flap now. The recipient has very small feet, so I am still planning on getting it done this week. I love doing heels and this pattern still has interest on the foot part. Therefore, I should not get bored and put it down after the heel is completed. I also like grafting toes. I know........I am a strange creature. I don't know why I enjoy that part, unless it signals the end of a project.
Today, hubby set to cleaning the bathrooms and kitchen. He is so good at this. I do the deep cleaning of the kitchen, but he takes care of the floors for me as my RA does not like me doing a lot of mopping. I also enjoy dusting and do that for him too. He does all the heavy work and has for about 10 years. Love this man. Laundry is still my job and I do not complain about that in the least. I never liked the way he hung or folded the clothes. I am a creature of habit in that area.
After he was done with the cleaning, we had to re-glue our border on our steps that goes in and out of our dining room.
