Another perfectly beautiful day and one I feel as if I've wasted somewhat because I didn't spend most of it outside. I'm still staying off the foot which is getting better all the time but it's not quite there yet. But being on the porch is not bad. I can see the birds and the blooming Bradford pears, keep an eye on the chickens and enjoy the sweet spring air.
I did get Levon's blanket made today and since it's "just" a blanket and not an Official Name Blanket it was fast, easy, and came out nicely enough. I cut out the fabric on my table on the porch which was good for my spirit and back, too, because I wasn't having to do my creaky old floor dance on my knees.
I had no fabric that even vaguely went with the gray, yellow, and orange theme of the heavy equipment so I used a very soft green flannel that I had for the back. It's relatively light-weight because the printed material is just cotton and I only used a piece of old heavy sheeting as the middle layer. I put in a few embroidery thread ties to hold the middles all together and I think it'll be fine for a small boy who really, really wanted his blanket. I have not made a pillow yet. We shall see about that. I do have enough fabric leftover but then August will demand a pillow and this will never end.
Mr. Moon made a trip to Orlando today. He helped our across-the-street neighbor buy a car that was there and they drove down together for her to pick it up and for him to get a golf cart that he used to drive around the many acres of pavement at the auto auction when he attended in person every week before he started buying via the online auction. I heard from him a little while ago and although he and some security guy drove around the place for hours, the golf cart was never located, and Mr. Moon is quite unhappy because not only does he not have his golf cart, he is also missing an FSU basketball game on the TV.
I just tasted my sauerkraut and it's pretty nice although there's not nearly enough liquid in it. I did not press it down enough, I think. But I can add saltwater to it and that should do the trick. It's very crispy and rather spicy, as cabbage can be.
