Today's blogpost was going to announce my 500th blog post giveaway but I am too sad to do that today. You won't believe today's drama!
The day started out okay. I got up early to head out to the rhubarb patch. This photo was taken last week, and the rhubarb was much higher today, and I could get enough for jam (only need 4 cups). I made the first batch of blueberry rhubarb jam of the season...the rhubarb was fresh but the blueberries were the ones I picked last summer. The jam making went well (good consistency and proper seals) and I quickly had 8 jars canned.
Remember that I told you last week that one of my quilts was accepted into a juried show? I had even emailed to confirm the acceptance of the quilt, and received 2 emails back confirming that it was juried into the show.
Well, today was opening day and guess what? When I got to the show I was given my quilt to take home! Was this some kind of cruel joke? I questioned them about it, but no, that quilt was apparently on the reject list.
How this could have happened, I have no idea. I will email the person who originally emailed me the acceptance letters, but an explanation won't change how this whole debacle felt today.
And then I had to leave that production to load up 4 vehicles worth of my daughter's belongings plus 8 jars of jam, and help move her into her own place (where she will live with 4 of her friends). And my problem is that what I don't want to be at home (the quilt), is home... and what I do want to be at home (my daughter and all her stuff), is not!!
I am going to take a nice hot bath, have a little visit with the DR., and call it a day.
