Orange Crush Step 2 - Finally

Finally, my step 2's are finished. I did 50 last night, and 73 this morning. It is amazing how much faster it goes when you actually work on it, instead of thinking about working on it. I am tempted to skip step 3, and go on to step 4, but I am fighting the temptation, as it goes against my sense of order. It is silly, but that's how I am. Hopefully, I can skip all (or at least most) of the whining and thinking, and go right to the actual cutting and sewing.
Today has been a fairly nice day. The weather has been beautiful, and after I finished step 2, my DH and I met my daughter and my grandson, and her boyfriend and looked at some model homes. It is tempting, but then it seems to make more sense to stay where we are. My daughter would love to buy a new home, as her house is old and not exactly what she would like to live in as it has a lot of old memories from her marriage, which had a lot of unhappy times. There doesn't seem to be a perfect house, not in our price range anyway, and our house has most of what we want.
After that, we met DD and her boyfriend at an Italian restaurant, as we were all starving, and I had my usual baked ziti. Now we are home, and my husband is watching his Red Sox. After that, we are going to go for a walk. We missed 2 days, and I don't want to get back out of the habit of going. I'd like to take some pictures of beautiful flowers to share on my blog, and living in Florida you would think that they would be all over the place. Unfortunately, it has been so dry that you don't see too many yards with flowers. I'm thinking of cheating, and going to a nursery or some such place, and taking flower pictures.

Excellent work on step 2, step 3 goes really fast, it's not that many blocks. I don't think it's cheating to take pictures of flowers at a nursery. I love the flower picture you have on your profile. You must have an excellent camera. Mine gets all blurry and doesn't want to focus that close up.

Your third sentence is one of those "thoughts to live by"! You got that right!!! Funny

Your blocks are coming along - I'm so looking forward to seeing what they are all going to turn into. I didn't play, and always wish afterwards, that I had. 8-)

Your step 2 blocks are looking good, and step 3 is a doddle. You'll be caught up in no time. Keep up the walking, it's brilliant exercise.
