Last I posted we had a broke water main. Well the plumbers were out in the freezing rain slipping and sliding around the yard fixing the main. Here are a few photos of what the process looked like. Hubby had been babying the yard all summer when it was dry so it would look nice. Now this.
This was when they first got to the house to start to work.
Two holes had to be dug. If you look at the previous photo there is a man in an orange hoodie hood…here he is in the hole. Yes, that is his head.
Hole number 2 starting.
Here is Hubby’s precious green (muddy) front yard. We now need to get a few bags of dirt to put in around the sidewalk. At least it is fixed and we aren’t making the yard a swamppy mess.
This was Monday. Tuesday up at 3 to get ready for a day with Granddaughter and got a call from oldest Daughter, Alicia,(One of One Creative Family) left work in pain and went to the Dr. He sent her for a sonagram of her gallbladder and they sent her to the ER. After spending 6 hours waiting for a bed space in the ER they gave her a bed and admitted her to the hospital. This was 9 pm and at 1 am they got her a bed, but on the OB floor. So many sick with the flu. She is waiting for the surgeon to come in and talk to her about the procedure they will do. She has 2 wonderful daughters who are waiting to take good care of her when she gets home. Her wonderful boyfriend who is by her side thru this all and keeping us posted.
Today is an up day in the ups and downs. It will be a warm 56 degrees and sunny. We will be soaking up as much of the sun as possible. Then finish the Illusion Quilt.
What will you be doing?
Coming up tomorrow…I discovered some great tips for applique. For those of you who know me know I haven’t done a lot of these, BUT I learned alot at Quilt Guild Monday night.
