Good Morning! This is how Tetsu and I had coffee this morning. A simple way to start the day happy.
Yesterday was very productive. ...but not in the way of quilting. It was a sunny day so what did we do? Moved all the downstairs furniture outside and waxed the floors! Yeah! This is a once a year project for me and it really makes a difference. We took up carpets and had everything that wasn't nailed down outside. I bet our neighbors thought we were moving! The floor is nice and shiney and everything smells fresh and clean but it won't stay that way for long I'm sure. Dog and cat fur, nail scratches, drinking water spots and worse! Ah well, it feels good today to see the shine!
After that bust of energy and a quick lunch Tetsu hit the fields and planted vegetables. He is a farmer 101 and he thinks digging a hole and putting a plant in will work miracles. Mr. Yano has a field and last year and this year he is letting Tetsu use a couple rows of it. So... Tetsu planted eggplant , mini-tomatos, moroheiya (a type of greens), cucumber, sweet pepper, pumpkin, watermelon and corn. (Three plants each.) Mr. Yano saw him digging and came out and advised Tetsu to replant some things that were too close together. Hmmm... I wonder what we'll be eating this summer.
And then I made a wreath for my front door. Not too artistic but again bright and cheery and maybe welcoming to people who see it.
