Week 28 of 2020: Stitching Stuff

Today is the last day of our summer staycation.  It's been a good week. I didn't get in as much stitching time as I had hoped. We did get a few things done around the house, hiked a bit and hung out with the Scientist in Training.  We celebrated our 28th wedding anniversary yesterday with a special take out dinner.  The evening plans for an evening hike got rained out. Oh well, we still had a nice evening hanging out and hearing from family. 

It was relatively easy to work in 15 minutes of stitching time each day with our relaxed staycation schedule. 

It was a good week, I just didn't get in the hours of stitching time I was hoping for, but I did manage more than the minimum of 15 minutes every day this week. 

15 minute days/week = 7/7 days
15 minute days/July = 11/11 days
15 minute days/2020 = 170/193 days
Success rate = 88%

I should get in a solid afternoon of stitching.  Then it's back to work on Monday.  You can link up with how your stitchy week went below. 

We really did have a staycation other than the trip to see the SIT. We ventured out only one other morning to a park we didn't know existed for a morning of hiking. It ended up being a nice walk, though it was definitely warm by the time we got done. 

Thankfully most of the hike was in the shade.  The bees were definitely out in force. 

There was just this one yellow wildflower on the trail, but it was popular.  

And this is a button bush, though it looks a lot like those pictures you see on articles about corona virus.  

That was pretty much the extent of our wandering this week.  We were the only ones on the trails. A family showed up for a walk just as we were leaving, so social distancing wasn't an issue. 

How's your stitchy mojo holding up with the heat, humidity and  the other crazy stuff going on this summer.

Happy Anniversary! Sounds like a relaxing week.

Karen - Quilts...etc. said...

congrats on your anniversary - I think a lot of people are celebrating their anniversaries as home safely this year and planning to do a something special next year instead - I know we didn't do anything for our 48th last year

Happy anniversary! Nice you were able to get in a hike. I love your corona virus flowers. I didn’t think of it until you mentioned it, but definitely, they fit.

Meloney said...

Sounds like you had a great anniversary! It's always fun to have time with family for special occasions.

Glad you had a fairly relaxing week at home without too many work-related interruptions. Hope the return to work isn't too overwhelming.

Happy anniversary. The little hike sounds like a great way to explore the area safely. The button bush is quite interesting.

Happy Anniversary. Looked like a nice spot to walk in, feeling a bit envious of warm weather. We had a fog this morning and when I came home there was still sea fog down by the beach, sometimes happens this time of year, its a bit weird and spooky to see fog in the middle of the afternoon. More pretty flowers and your right that last one does look like rona.

Louise said...

Oo, that flower DOES look like a virus! Kinda creepy. Glad you had such a nice staycation. It's been hot and humid here, too, which slows down my sew-jo. I'm hoping to get a bit more stitching in today :)

Your staycation sounds lovely. It’s good to take a break from the grind, isn’t it? Happy Anniversary!
