View Full Version : Good Monday Morning

March 21st, 2011, 08:35 AM

It's a quiet and pretty morning here; sun is not quite out as I think it will be overcast. The birds are singing and chirping and rustling in my bushes. Spring is definitely in the air. Even my eyes are itchy. Hey, I'll take that and a zyrtec to be rid of the crud from the past few weeks.

Whatcha got going on today? Hubs will be home in a few to take care of some business and hopefully Sis will be by so we can play.

Good morning Blondie and Gina,

Well it's snowing!! And here I thought spring was here. CRAP!! Today I will do a little clean up after my granddaughter was here. Catch up on my "Young and Restless" which I taped. I will quilt while watching them.

Husband and I have started our own choir. It's called "Coughing to the oldies". We both have the hack. What a lovely pair we are. Chicken soup will be the makings today!!

Well, Happy Monday all.

:(Today will be our last day of vacation ...besides the usual walking, biking, swimmin and sunning, we have to do laundry and prep the house we are using for the next group. Oh, and try to check in for our flight home. There was such incredible problems booking this vacation that I won't be sure we have a flight home (aww, too bad!) until we're actually checked in. Bittersweet day. Too soon to go home (snowing there) but I am anxious to get to work on some quilting ideas I've gotten from you folks. I'm thinking of a table runner incorporating prints of the flower pictures I posted in a thread earlier this week and trying some wonky stripes of various blues and whites (to represent the ocean and beach).:icon_wave:

Good Morning!
I'm feeling sluggish today and the old brain isn't sharp enough to offer welcomes to everyone in fashion.

Just know I'm thinking of you each and every one. I don't even have an idea of what I'm going to do today, so it is difficult to remember what you are doing . . .

It is beautiful here this morning. 59 degrees at 7:00 am. In the 80's today. Wow! It is finally spring. It is my oldest daughter's birthday. So dinner tonight with the family.
Working in the garden today and baking a cake, getting ready for the kids.
Everyone have a great day and catch ya later!

Hi all!
Happy Belated Birthday to Lynn!
Hope you have fun with Sis today Blondie.
Gina - good to hear you are feeling better and have some help for your move.
Monique - I am right there with you on the coughing and it's getting kinda old! Hope you two can relax today and enjoy your chicken soup!
Paula - Wake up sleepy girl! I hate that groggy feeling.
Angela - Can't wait to see the pics of your first quilt!
Nancy - Enjoy your last moments of vacation! I remember the beautiful pics you posted, boy that would make a stunning table runner! Safe travels on your way home.
Yooo hoooo Sandy! Hope you got some coffee to clear the cobwebs!
Shirley - Happy Birthday to your daughter! Your weather sounds lovely...wish I could do a little urban gardening but will wait another couple weeks as we have snow in the forecast for this week!

Well, I am working hard to get the store in order to close. From info that is dribbling in, it might be a bigger hassle than I first thought because the owner is so detached but with the help of my staff I will get through it. Hope they all stay til the end!
My sweetie is taking me to dinner and a Bulls game tonight! It will be a good diversion from all the store commotion but I will be exhausted tomorrow!
Hope you all have a lovely day!

Good Morning Everyone. Beautiful day today in Atlanta Georgia. Hopefully when I get home from work tonight I can get some sewing done after supper. I am soooooooooo far behind. My daughter and her two beautiful boys have moved out (I think anyway, they are at the house every night for supper). So now I'm going to get busy. We have our Greater Atlanta Shop Hop this weekend, Thursay through Sunday, so my mission this year is to find some Wild Animal print fabric.

Oh well guess I had better get to work (Oh wait! I'm there guess I had better get busy). Hope everyone is well and has a great day.

Hello everyone! I couldn't wake up this morning either. It is cold and the rain was going horizontal instead of vertical. The dogs wouldn't even go out. We all went back to bed. I didn't sleep, I drank coffee and read my book and snuggled under the covers to get warm. We had such a nice 60 degree day and now it's supposed to snow again. Oh well, in our area if you don't like the weather wait a minute and it will be different.
Suzi does this mean our package has been sent? YAY!!!! How about the one to you know who?
I can't wait!
Hope everyone has a super day! Love to you all, Jan L

Morning All!
I'll be doing some sewing this afternoon and some house cleaning this morning. I have to clean out the laundry room before Wednesday. It doubles as the coat/mud room. I think there are things buried under the coats that we haven't seen in 3 or 4 years!

I am still trying to decide which block I want to make for the swap. I guess I need to dig out the books and pick one.

You ladies have a good day!

It's raining, it's snowing .......yep, it's doing both in Massachusetts! I'm envious of all the talk of spring in your neighborhoods!
I'm o.k. with it because it will be blistering hot before you know it. Don't have time for hobbies lately. Since our baby Golden Retriever arrived I am quite busy trying to explain the "rules of the house" to her. Some days I am SURE she is smarter than I. Enjoy your day everyone.

It is a gray/grey day here in Nebraska. Not overly cold, but still need a jacket. Just a blah day, and it's making me feel blah. Went out this morning to run some errands and now I think I'll settle in for some sewing, or possibly a nap first. :D

Today my package should arrive from MSQC. I am excited!! Mailman should be delivering in the next half hour. Whoop Whoop!! (think "Pretty Woman" when you read that)

May those of you flying/driving today have safe travels.

Hello, everyone, hope you are having a wonderful Monday (if there is such a thing). Carol Ann, wonderful to hear you have a new baby in the house!

March 21st, 2011, 09:43 PM
