Same Old Thing

With Covid 19, there isn'y much exciting happening here.  I have a routine.  In the morning I practice the piano. I have been working on some Mozart sonatas, the one in G major number 5 and the C major, number 3.  I had worked on that one as a kid and hated it.  Now I am surprised how pretty it is. Then if the weather is warm I pull weeds for a while. Not long. We also sit and watch butterflies as they come out of the winter hibernation. Hubby had chrysalis from Black Swallowtails, Spice Bush Swallowtails, and Pipe Vine Swallowtails that had formed last fall.  He kept them in a storage cabinet outside all winter and brought them out the first of May. He must have had close to 30 of them.

   Then I quilt. Kameren's quilt is done.  I am really pleased with the quilting pattern. It is waves with fishes in the waves. I also finished the top of Mike and Marilyn's anniversary quilt and the top of a scrap quilt that I really like. I have two more quilts I am still piecing. I also made 175 surgical masks for charity


     Fridays I clean house but it the evening we have a Zoom call with six of the kids. It is lots of fun.  It goes on for hours.

175 masks! Wow, you are the champion! I've made about 6, all rather rough looking and some sewn entirely by hand because I have a 40-yr-old sewing machine (maybe 50) and it barely works. Inspired by your husband I'm this close to raising butterflies. I'll have to do some research first of course but I'll let you know. I was a beekeeper for 13 months inspired totally by blogs so you never know.
Glad you enjoy your family Zoom sessions. That gives me hope. I've only Zoomed 4 times -- twice with my daughter in Brooklyn and twice with some old high school friends. I have very mixed feelings about it. Zooming with daughter and SIL is fine, zooming with a group of friends, not so much. But I'll adjust because I'll have to.
Maybe I'll blog today. I want to every day. But I don't. I don't understand myself.
