Liberation Day!


Woo hoo! We saw the last of the health home visits yesterday and I am beyond elated. For 10 days I've had strangers tromping through my house all day and it was exhausting. For the last few visits Pup and I went into the sewing room where I actually got a few things put together while they were here taking vitals and putting The Mister through his exercises. 

Dear Jane block C-13, Lakota Sioux, is now done. Lattices and all. I also finished 2 more scrappy hexies for the paper pieced table runner. I have one more hexie to go and then I'll have to figure out how to put it all together. 

But this weekend I am celebrating. No more jumping out of bed and cleaning my house for morning sessions. No more spending all day straightening up for afternoon sessions. Since they go in every room working with The Mister's transitioning, no room was safe from prying eyes. This weekend there will be dishes in my sink, cat hair on my floors and a big mess in the kitchen.

Speaking of big messes in the kitchen, as soon as the last of them went out the door yesterday I attempted to make a chocolate cake to go with that can of Dolly Parton chocolate frosting that's been living in my pantry cabinet. Oh, was a chocolate volcano. I still haven't gotten the hang of that little oven I bought. It's either too hot or too cold.  Oh, well...with enough frosting I can straighten this mess out. No one-and by that I mean The Mister, will ever know the difference.


  1. I"m betting that "liberation" cake will taste just awesome. More frosting is never a bad thing.

  2. Hurrah for frosting! Glad you have your house back, and I love that Dear Jane block; it's beautiful!

  3. Cake sounds like a great idea! Hope today has gone well for you both.

  4. Taste is all that matters! I've made some very tasty disasters in my time!

  5. Congrats on the liberation! The cake looks delicious.
