Spring Knotgarden

Wow!  You don't know how good you've got it till you go somewhere it's worse.  The heat index here in Southeast Nebraska has been 110+ for the last week or more.  Wednesday, we headed to Oklahoma with a short layover in Wichita Kansas.  It was still hot there but it was after 9 when we got there.  Thursday, we went to Stillwater Oklahoma and tracked down an airplane that Ed wanted to get pictures of so he knew how to paint a model.  Yes, he is that kind of geek.  We also ate at Eskimo Joes and purchased the obligatory tee shirts at their store.  By the time we walked out of the restaurant it was over 100 degrees.  But it's a dry heat...yea right.  That doesn't turn me into a sweat ball any slower.

We eventually made it to Ed's folks' house.  But we were hardly there.  Between going to the "farm" so the grown up boys could play and going to Ed's sister to visit her pool so the littler boys could play, I know exactly how hot it is there and I did my best to hide from the heat in the a/c.  I mean really, when you're sitting in the shade not doing anything but a little stitching, should you have sweat just streaming down the small of your back?  I don't think so.

But we survived and have arrived home.  Now I have loads and loads of laundry to catch up on during the week.  But before I start that, here is a picture of Chatelaine's Spring Knotgarden through part 2.  I am 3/4 of the way through part 3 but didn't want to deal with moving the q-snaps with limited room going down a bumpy 2 lane highway.

Part three will probably be shown tomorrow. 

Now, time to go throw a pizza in the oven for supper and go face down those loads of laundry and move the q-snaps!
