This was our summer for working on things at home. New insulation, some leaky faucets fixed. leaks on the roof repaired. I also finally dug out the stumps of bushes I had cut down next to our house. I have been slowly putting in new plants. I'm going slow picking out the plants and then plan to put down decorative stones. Of course, as soon as I started we stopped having our regular afternoon rain! I did not expect to have to water them too :)
Back in 2012, I picked up some quilting fabric called "Deep in the Heart of Texas." My idea was to eventually make a quilt for my youngest son, who was born in Houston. This summer I finally got to it. I have the quilt top put together and plan to put on a border this week.
My next week's projects will hopefully include more planting, more quilting, and getting started on the many materials labels I need when I start setting up my classroom. Because of renovation projects, many teachers changing classrooms, and a larger than normal number of new teachers we don't have our classroom keys this summer. I'm expecting to get into my classroom the week of the 25th.
