Admission cycles always spin slowly in June. We’ve selected our class and they have replied. The trustees have met, the matriculation ceremony is over and the campus is delightfully serene and emptied. The work load shifts and you may find staff catching up on their reading.
I, of course, will be doing something fiber-related. Like stitching a binding onto a badly neglected quilt. I’m cleaning up my computer files.
The quilt pictured above is one that I made for my mother several years ago. It’s a favorite of mine and I thought that she was partial to it as well. But when my sister moved to Savannah last month, that particular quilt travelled with her. What? (picture woman with steam blasting out of her ears!) I could not cotton to my mother’s explanation of its disappearance so I asked my sister … and she was uncharacteristically snippy. She informed me that I would have to come south to fetch it. (picture woman with sour lemon in her mouth expression). She went on to explain that she planned to put the quilt in the guest room so that mom would feel more at home when visiting. Family. Can’t live with them, can’t shoot them.
Back to cleaning up the computer …
Today’s Buzz: Bees pollinate 1/3 of our food supply. If bees disappear our markets will be emptied of everything from apples to herbs – and that is just the beginning.
