I am always at loose ends on the days following the Tour but it didn't take long for me to turn my attention elsewhere this year.
I got a shipment of new to me fragrances and colors.
Honeycrisp. I could eat it.
Farmhouse Cider. It took me three times last year to get this one right. I think I nailed on the first try this year. It is a scary fragrance to work with but it smells so good it's worth the trouble.
Fairy Garden. This smells just like what you would think a fairy garden would smell. I love it. I mucked up the top trying to get too fancy but I'll just pretend I don't see it.
Porridge is such a delicious fragrance that I put some in my tart warmer so I could smell it all day.
I also talked The Mister into helping me make some graduation cards for his niece and nephew who will be celebrating this weekend. He grumbles about it and then totally gets into it. He designed these and did all the coloring. I think they turned out adorable.
Yesterday I managed to find the time to finish up the towel that was on the loom. The new warp is ready to go. Once again I have a big one and a small one. I really have to figure out this measuring thing.
Finally I made two twiddle mitts to send off to Kathy B. They helped me work off the stress I was feeling after the health care vote. You know how much this means to Daddio who needs help paying his $10,000 a month nursing home bill-and that's just room and board. He also pays for medications, doctor visits and therapy just like the rest of us. Your hard earned assets don't go very far. Daddio's didn't. Everyone in need of care that can no longer be provided at home will need government assistance at some time. In a perfect world Daddio would still be home and I would still be cooking and cleaning for him but for his safety-and mine it was not to be. I hope you let your congressmen know how you feel about seniors and the disabled being put out of nursing homes due to the Medicaid cuts. 40% of us who make it to 65 will end up in one someday. Think about your loved ones and how their lives will be affected when YOU become that burden. I do. It keeps me up at night.
