Overwhelm - dble exp: quilt and collage

Thanks to Christi over at Sweet Pea Path for turning me onto the DianaPhotoApp and to Art of Mob (on instagram)! And, for saying she DETESTS the ‘new flickr’.  I actually understated how much I have disliked the updates. They really kinda ruined the experience for me. For instance? I can no longer post directly to wordpress. Writing this simple post with photos from flickr is a nightmare.


The Nor’easter continues here with wind and rain. Nothing too drastic, but some branches down here and there and pools of water on the roads. Two maple branches blew into our yard from somebody else’s trees — I can’t quite figure out whose!




Monday overwhelm


K’s travel schedule, college financial aid deadlines, multiple doctor’s appointments (thankfully routine) for everyone in family – including the dog today, and the flurry of March birthdays (in my immediate family, there are FIVE), all have me feeling a little overwhelmed!

But I will report some happy news and then look to quilts as a meditation – one can only take one stitch at a time, afterall, can only attach two pieces together at a time.  And, I can breathe while I do that.

The happy news?  C’s 4 x 400mm relay team broke his high school track record two weeks ago; placed third in Massachusetts; placed fourth in New England; and qualified for the Nationals!!!  This is such a nice coup for his senior year!  C has known one of his relay team members since pre-school (age 3), and another since kindergarten!!  I haven’t yet figured out how to attend.  It’s in NYC.
