It has been a while since I have been here. I have been very busy with custom orders, dealing with hubby's problems, and started staying with my 11 year old grandson while brother works.
Today has been a day of storms. So far we have been lucky and had heavy rain, small hail, and some flash flooding. Looking at the radar weather map, it will be a bumpy night. I hate the storms when it rains with all of the thunder and lightening at night.
I wasn't suppose to know, but it slipped out that my oldest son is flying home tomorrow and will be here until Monday. We haven't seen him since Christmas. He is coming in for a job interview which I am praying that he gets. He will be closer to home and family. Right now he works 13 days and gets one day off. Of course, his nephews are on cloud 9 that he is coming home. My middle grandson wants him to spend the night with him. He will even give him his bed. He will only get to see a video of his nephew loping his horse.
We got in our first horse show of the year last Saturday. Matt got 3 seconds and one third with T biscuit. He did rather well since he hasn't been riding this horse that long. I got to take him one night to his lesson. We got his lesson done and his saddle put away just as it started to rain. It rained all the way back to town. He likes loping now. He started in the round pen and gradually got to go to the big arena. His dad showed Juliet in two classes and got third on both. Big brother had to work so he didn't get to show. Juliet is his horse and that was why dad showed her. Hopefully he will get to do so the next show if we get to have it. We need for the rain to stop.
My fingers have been busy with making towels for a wedding shower gift. The wedding is a week from Sunday. It is outside so they hope that it doesn't rain, but you can't tell the way they have popped up today.The shower is this weekend. It was suppose to be next spring but they moved it up. The groom enlisted in the service and he wanted his bride to be to have the spouse benefits.
I have made five nurse's Saving Lives tea towels. I am hoping to put one in my etsy shop. The others have gone as graduation and wedding gifts. We have a couple of nurses, a doctor, and a physical therapist in the family now. It makes you feel good when they put the effort into those fields.
It is getting late and I have to get up early in the morning so I will say goodnight. I am still here.
