Dictionaries (I looked at several) define minions as fawning, servile, underlings; or lesser beings intent on serving their master's will. I don't know about all that. But. I loosed my minions to work in the larger garden bed today. The mustard greens are way past their prime and there are weeds everywhere. They went right to work cleaning up the mess. You may notice that one chicken is on the outside of the fence looking in. After numerous trips up and down the fence line trying to get in, she finally went around to the side where the gate is and joined her sisters. The brightest bulbs on the tree they are not. But they are endlessly amusing.
It's raining again, so they have stopped work for now.
All this rain we've been having is making the plants and flowers happy. I think they're still recovering from the drought last year. Houston lost SO many trees due to the lack of rain. This year, however, we are getting a very good supply! Thank God!
I am looking out this very window and most everything I see out there is very green and very wet.
Last night I chose this bright sashing/border material for the little monkey squares. Maybe I can get it finished tonight. We'll see.
Also last night I got a new shipment of 1930's reproduction fat quarters washed, ironed and cut into 2 1/2" strips, along with some unbleached muslin. I'm thinking I'll make another Strip Twist from these. But probably not tonight.
Because tonight I need to pack. Mr. Muddling and I are taking a little weekend trip tomorrow, just the two of us, for a little get away. Always a good thing and it's been way too long since we had one. I'll give you a report when we get back!
Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
Hugs and kisses,
