Quilting on the back burner
Very few electrical connections and no internet.
Even cell phone connections are poor.
Nikko and I will share a tent and I hope to leave a ton of dog hair behind for nesting birds.
The bird and the plants will be taking pot-luck and the neighbors will be surprised to see how many leaves and trash litters the street on a daily basis (or weekly as the case will be).
Other than sorting fabric, nothing is done in the quilting department other than set aside some one-inch pieces for four x four blocks.
The picture was taken on my roof in a space behind the heating unit. This prickly pear cactus was given me by a neighbor when we lived in Suginami. He has a tall one on his front porch. This cutting began blooming about three years ago and I usually miss the blooms because they open while I am at Scout camp.
Last winter was hard on all the outside plants but the Easter cactus came back several weeks ago and, though battered and bent, the prickly pear is joining in the celebration of spring.
Somehow this seems like the way my life is going, so is a good reminder to not give up, no matter where the chips fall.
it seems to have it's arms and face turned upward ...
A prayer of thanks?
I will carry it in my heart ... along with my blogging friends.
I hope you all have a fine week and there will be fun stuff to view upon my return.
