My friend Margaret's knee replacement surgery went well and according to schedule. We wanted to start the day with a leisurely wakeup/get ready and plenty of travel time, so we made plans to spend the night before at a hotel, about two miles, as the crow flies, from the hospital. So far, so good.
We made arrangements for a 5 AM wakeup call. Since hospital check-in was 6:30 am, we'd given ourselves plenty time. Margaret awoke at 5:15! No wakeup call! She woke me up about 5:40.
We scurried, packed up and got to the hospital with at least ten minutes to spare. From then on, everything worked like clockwork, as we'd been told it would. Always a little drama, though that was totally unnecessary. I started to set my iPhone alarm but didn't. I'll know better next time...if there is.
A neighbor down the street has the most interesting flower garden. I captured these pansies and marigolds (I think) in those fun pots on her front steps as I took my walk yesterday afternoon, after I returned from the hospital. The flowers reminded me of my latest finished Fower Garden block, a preview I shared earlier this week.
I am working on my last four blocks; don't think they'll all be finished by Labor Day but, fingers crossed, maybe by the end of next week...and then, maybe not. No rush (nor deadline). Now, I'm off to work on the bébé's quilt!
