The Quilt Is Coming Together

Judy had a great day on her quilting project; she made a lot of progress.  It’s coming together beautifully.  I wish I could show it to you but, you’ll have to wait until baby Fortner makes the scene and takes possession of said quilt first.  However, I can tell you that it is coming together quite nicely; it’s almost perfect.  The main ingredient that is still remains missing is the birthdate and the name.  Without that information the last block cannot be finished.  What that means is that there will be a mad push to finish the quilt once that information is made available.  The due date is September 6th which is just around the corner (two more sleeps).

Matthew will be taking Catia to Vanderbilt Hospital this morning for an EKG, a CAT Scan, and an X-ray to determine if there are any heart issues.  We don’t believe that there are but, she did have pain in her chest, shortness of breath, and a bluish tint to her lips and cheeks during a soccer game.  Her pediatrician thinks she has a heart murmur; therefore, the rationale for taking her to Vanderbilt.  We’ll keep you posted.

Judy is going to watch Kalina and Radek while Matt and Catia are at the hospital.  I’ll stay home and look after the katts.  There are still some household chores that need to be accomplished.  I will spend considerable time in the bathroom doing a deep clean of the vanity, toilet, shower, washer/dryer, and the floors.  When we get to w*rking fulltime, we tend to get slack.  Other than shampooing the rugs later this week, the rest of the house is in pretty good shape – inside, that is.  The exterior is in need of a bath but, that will have to wait for another four weeks, or so, until we get back to Rainbow Plantation.

This is Jackie’s last week in Chattanooga for training, however, she does have another week at the Murfreesboro facility where she will be working.  We’re not sure of our departure date at this time but, we are targeting a week from tomorrow.  We are planning to visit Gene and Judi Curp in Maryville on our way east (if time will allow).  Then on our way back to Rainbow Plantation we hope to stop by and see Larry and Babs Cameron in North Carolina and Mike and Gerri Jones in Georgia.  Only time will tell if everyone’s schedules will mesh.

Well, Enuff is enuff and this is enuff.  So, May God Bless  - - - - - - - -
