So I walked in to clean Matthew's bathroom and there it was. He had warned me that the bug on the counter was something he was keeping. Ewww, right? Well, that is what one gets with an entomologist in the house. (that is the official name of the field of biology he is into...BUGS.) So as I clean around this thing I find that it really isn't dead. I am not sure how high I jumped when it's little legs grabbed a hold of my finger. but it took a while to regain my composure and finish the job. That was yesterday. Today the counter is clear, but then I went to get something out of the freezer and there he was again. My son keeps me on my toes.
Yesterday was a rather slow one, I think the events of the night left me feeling tired and a bit melancholy. I needed to do something fun and take charge of something so I had a good time in my quilt studio today.
This is one of the Petals of My Heart blocks designed by McKenna Ryan. I have several more yet to do before the quilt is ready to put together. Certainly a much better way to spend my day than in the bathroom with "mostly dead" bugs.
