Hornets, Lemon cucumbers and Catherine the Great

What do those things have in common? - My Week! Nutmeg got a caterpillar sting on Sunday and a Hornet sting on Tuesday. Today I am going to try to get her to the park, but she still does not want to leave the house; who could blame her? I picked my first lemon cucumbers this week. I think they are very yummy! They taste just like regular cucumbers, but the shape and color are fun. I am currently living on tomato sandwiches!
This week, Nutmeg and I studied Catherine the Great in history. We also looked at library books about the Russian Orthodox. We visited a Greek Orthodox church a few times this summer, so she had some context. Next week we will start Napoleon.

I finished stitching "Persuasion," and am now back to my rotation. For now....

Persuasion is looking good! I can't wait to stitch this one. It's my pile of stitch's "to do".
Did you do this one 1 over 1 or is that 2 over 2? Looks good!

Love that little Persuasion. Hate that Nutmeg got those stings!!! I'll never forget when Jessica got a hornet sting...and it was 25 yrs. ago! Hurtie! Please tell her I'm soooo sorry that happened to her. Sending love and hugs, Deb
