View Full Version : Good Sunday morning everyone!

November 21st, 2010, 10:12 AM
I'm up and the sun is out and it's a beautiful day out there, hope it is like for everyone else too!
My regular Sunday - to church and then on to Dad's to finish up the leaves for this year. I'll be glad when that's done. I've been raking every Sunday for the past few weeks.
This morning, I let out my morning kitty and there stands my other humungeous cat waiting to be let in. How the heck he got outside after midnight, I'll never know. Sometimes my son opens his window and Shadow gets out by pushing the screen out, but this morning, the screen is still in tact. Right now he is sleeping in the bathroom sink, snoring away! In fact, I know he was in last night at midnight cause DH said, do you hear that? Is that Shadow snoring? We could hear him at the other end of the house!
Well, off here for now.
Hoping that you all have a great Sunday.
Oh, please say a little prayer for Odie when you all go to bed tonight. He will head out at 2 am tomorrow morning to start his Crucible and will come in on Wednesday morning. He'll have 50 some hours, 40 some miles to go and lots of obstacles to get through and only 3 MRE's to eat and 2 hours of sleep every 24 hours of it so I don't think I'll be getting much sleep myself the next few days.

Good Morning Ladies!

Trish, I am just beaming at your post. That is one smart kitty! My basement dweller, Dinah, got out one time. She was scared to death. LOL. Stood at the basement door and kept crying to be let back in. She hid for three days after that. hehehe

Odie's on the hour count down! Yippee. Don't talk about leaves. We have so many that we could probably start a good compost business. Just not enough time or energy. It's all we can do to haul them down to the holler at the edge of the property.

Just a heads up here for me ladies; I may be mostly absent the next few days. With relations arriving in a week, the Thanksgiving preps to do, helping hubs with the leaves AND then work, I doubt I will be spending much time online. Of course, I am such an early riser that i may peek in to share a cup of coffee with you. But if I don't, you will know why.

Big blessings to all for a wonderful day.

I'm praying for Odie to do great on his crucible. I'm sure he'll be exhausted, hungry and scratched up some but he will do it and be proud of himself for having made it through.
As for the cat, he sounds like he has sleep apnea! LOL My dh does and boy can he snore! LOL
Laura I hope your day is beautiful and stress free. Take a deep breath and say this too shall pass. Love you sweetie. Please get some rest for your Thanksgiving week of craziness. :icon_crazy:
I pray everyones Sunday is blessed and wonderful, restful and fun. Love, Jan

Hi everyone! I haven't been on much lately, but checked in a couple of times. We have had a huge shake-up at work and it still has me reeling. I am faced, yet again, with losing my health insurance, was able to save it last year, but not so sure I will be as lucky this time. I do have some options, and am weighing (and waiting) on some of them. With youngest DD's chronic illness and DH's, not having my insurance too is just not possible for us.
I have been busy busy in the sewing room as well. The craft show went pretty well last weekend, I sold a few items, so was very happy with my 1st try at one. We have signed up to do another one in a couple of weeks, so I am getting more done for that. One of the things I am doing is ready to go baby shower gifts that will be 'wrapped' with a double layer flannel receiving blanket I have made. I want one of the blankets for myself!! I sold the rag quilt that I made before I could get a pic, and am still working on the 2nd one for this next show.
Well, it's my weekend to work so have to get ready now.
I wish everybody a beautiful Sunday! It's gorgeous here and heading for the 60's!

hello beautiful quilty lady friends!!

busy busy here too (its the time of year and i love it!) we had planned to walk downtown today for arts & craft fair but it is a bit cloudy and looking like it wants to rain. if i can get my orders from the last 3 jewelry shows closed and submitted then we can go... but i just had to stop by here and say HI!! first :)

tonight i think i will start the swapping of the star blocks and be ready for the mail lady tomorrow when she brings the last two packages! (fingers crossed) can not wait for y'all to get yours back - they are ALL so beautiful!!

everyone have a wonderful week of family and friend time sharing in God's love for us. be Thankful and Take time to smell the coffee. give someone a special moment to cherish, they may just give you one back!

Hello everyone last night we got hit with a ice storm that I got caught out in miles away from home. What was normally a 30mn drive took us 2hrs because of the ice. I saw accidents happen right before my eyes :icon_cry: . You know when things like that happen you are reminded again just how fragile life is. I'm still shaken up so I won't talk much today. Everyone please take the time to embrace your loved ones.

November 21st, 2010, 06:12 PM
So sorry Sewsoft. I hate ice storms with a passion. We were (my dh and I) on duty for the one that crippled the North east a few years back. We took calls for 36 hours straight before we crashed and caught 30 minutes of sleep and then back on the road again. We had people without power for 14 days in some areas. I have never seen anything so devastatingly beautiful. The ice on the trees was beautiful but the destruction was horrible.
We had so many sick people on oxygen that we had to keep running tanks to. And older folks without heat and a way to cook food. Children without heat and food. We set up a base triage unit at the fire dept. and just kept playing musical heaters from house to house for the neediest of the people. We worked around the clock for three days with hardly any sleep It was something else. We had medical calls and accident calls. We moved people to family and or neighbors who had wood stoves so they could get warm.
Or eat for that matter. We took food and medicine to people and kept tabs on them for the 2 weeks some of us were without heat. As people came back on line they cooked and brought food to the fire dept. so people could have a hot meal. It was an experience that was both heartbreaking and touching. The kindness of people for their neighbors was something to behold. We worked together as a town and a people. It was amazing. I never want to go through that again. I'm so sorry you had an ice storm. I'll keep you in our prayers. Hugs, Jan

Good morning again ladies (well for me anyways).

When I read or see on the news about extreme weather events it makes me feel very blessed to live where I do and it breaks my heart to see what other folk must deal with. We do have bushfires and the occasional flood but not to the extent that others do and we have no cyclones, tornadoes or earthquakes. Our temperatures range from -2 to 50 celcius so about 28 to 120 F so no snow or ice although the heat can be a problem for some but the extremes aren't that often, maybe a few days or so each year.

Sewsoft I'm glad you arrived home safely even if it took so long.
Lola I do so hope you sort out your insurance, I struggle with the whole concept of health insurance as you have it in the US, here everyone is covered with an individual option to have a higher level of cover for non essential things if you choose and the govt subsidises all our prescription medications. I can not get my head around the way things work for you there, it just seems wrong.
Jan it is just amazing how a crisis will bring a community together, I have seen it many times and it is a lovely thing, if sad that it takes a crisis to have it happen.
I don't think I have said it before but I am praying for Odie and for you who have to wait at home for him. I was very sad for my son when he was unable to get a military position, but as a mother also a little relieved. May angels watch his every day.

Well I'm off to make this a productive Monday. take care all.:)
