B=Busy, Beautiful blooms, Bumblebee, ladyBug...

I was just going to post the photo below, but realized I just couldn't post one without the other...it makes for a good title with both.
Last night I could not go to sleep...I tried to go to bed around 2:30 a.m. but all I did was toss and turn, so I got up and read a while, which usually will relax me enough to fall asleep easily. Not last night. I finally put in a PBS Inspector Morse Mystery and that did the trick...I watched about 30 or 40 minutes and was having a hard time holding my eyes open...so turned it off....realized it was the beginning of daylight, but I went on to bed anyway.

So my day has had a late start...I hung a load of clothes out about an hour ago, but it is so hot they will be dry in no time. The only reason they won't be dry in an hour or so is the humidity. It is horribly humid today. Our thermometer says it is 88ยบ...feels hotter than that.

While waiting on the load of clothes, I sewed on some quilt blocks....I know I haven't quilted my Chantelle Tulips yet, but I felt the need to start a baby quilt so the next time someone close has a baby, I will have one prepared. I am trying to make it start to finish from fabrics I have on hand...so far that part is going well. It is just something simple...also not going to make it quite as big as I used to make all baby quilts.

So, it is back to the sewing machine for me...I think. I am so tempted to take a nap, but would feel guilty if I did. Roger is working in his shop....not sure what the cats are doing. I haven't heard from Sarah, but will contact her later...we have plans to see her and Jeremy tomorrow.

Wish me luck in the sewing department....

Love your flower pics, such a beautiful color of pink! It is HOT here too in Georgia! Whew, and today is just the FIRST day of summer, it's gonna be a hot one for sure.

I had an early start to my day, but I had little motivation to do anything. I finally got my shower at 2:45 PM! Your flower pictures with the bee and ladybug are very nice.

Sorry you couldn't sleep, Rose. That happened to me several nights this past month--with my knee pain. Thank Goodness I can sleep now. It's a horrible feeling not to be able to sleep... And then I'm tired the entire next day.

Hope you sleep tonight... Love your blooms, bumbleebee and ladyBug....

Hugs,
Betsy

I can never just post just one either. I hate it when I can't sleep and I toss and turn all night long. I should get up and do something when that happens.
I hope you can sleep tonight.

Your pictures are really good. I'm sorry you had trouble sleeping -- that certainly messes up the following day.

This is so pretty and I like the title :-) I can see we need to give each other a sewing pep talk again. I cut out pieces for my killdeer and now I am ignoring them. I think I am afraid to start for fear it won't work out right. I'll sew, if you sew!

The title is really cute! I have had trouble getting back to sleep and so has a friend of mine and 2 coworkers. Maybe it's the weather or the solstice or something. I am not an earthy/new age person at all, but I do think women are connected to the cycles of nature.

Sometimes I've been up when daylight is coming too. :)
Being retired I don't sweat it; and if I'm sleepy later I nap. Don't feel guilty just do it. Listen to your body.

I hope your sewing went well after not getting much sleep!

The roses and bees are lovely!

Jacob said...

These photos are very appropriate! You are always busy as a bee it seems to me!
