Hello Folksies!

It's Tuesday and you know what that means! Ricky will be coming over and we will watch the season finale of The Walking Dead. We have both been avoiding any and all communications with those around us who could be spoilers. I am expecting him early. After that, I will be down at Mom's pulling weeds. The ground is still quite wet and should make those rascals come right up. Spring so far as been on the cool side but as long as the sun is shining, I will be happy. Mom has a large and glorious Japanese Cherry tree in her back. I am hoping that it is getting ready to share it's splendor with us. Daddy had to have one after a visit to DC years and years ago. It's a bit early yet, so, I will be patient.

Last night was meatloaf and parsley potatoes with coin carrots for the veg on the dinner table last night. I just love leftover meatloaf for sammies. Everyone in the family knows that next to PBJ, I can put a hurting on the loaf. Unfortunately for me, Josh took home all the leftovers for his lunch break today. Sigh. My mouth waters at how delish it was. The recipe I use is one of my Mom's and I only do a small variation. Instead of ketchup I use chili sauce - just a bit - and it brings out all the taste buds.

I never did make it to the basement studio yesterday. Y'all know that I can't resist being outside. After a gloomy and kinda damp start, the sun came out. Gracie and I certainly enjoyed it. Even my allergies haven't been full force - yet. I will continue my zytec and netti pot regime and keep my fingers crossed.

Have a delightful day, everyone. Smile with me as I anticipate the arrival of Ricky and welcome The Walkers.
I think I will make a pan of frosted brownies and a fresh pot just for us.

Good morning Blondie, sounds like you have a full day planned. Enjoy!!!

Not too much on my agenda today.....still trying to keep everything in tip top shape in case anyone wants to come and see and hopefully buy the house. I'm in withdraw from sewing.....since my sewing salon was actually the breakfast room, everything had to be put away. I have so many ideas running around in my head and am itching to fire up ole Lulu and crank out some bags and pouches. Maybe it's time to bury the St Joseph statue out in the front yard - LOL.

Gonna head out to the mall for a little walk later, and tonight my little Patrick Swayze, aka Nelson, is taking me dancing.....such a lucky girl I am.

Have a great day everyone

Morning all. Up extra early today as Hubby had to get to work an hour early. Yesterday was an ok day. Today will hopefully be the same. Got some time so guess I'll get some sewing in before work. Snow is almost all gone except a few piles. Can't see any flowers popping up yet I am sure a few sunny days will draw them up.
Hugs to all that need them.

OK, I'm up, hot tea in hand and waiting for the sleepiness to wear off! Today is another day of painting! Finished 4 doors, 1 drawer and one full cabinet above and one next to the fridge yesterday! Today is one cabinet next to dishwasher and the whole section above the sink! Another 4 doors and a drawer! Leaving 13 doors and 4 drawers to go!!! Oh my!!! I'll be so glad when this is done!!!
Today is my last day before Medicare kicks in and my prescription drops from 235.00 to 35.00 per month! There's fabric in that remaining 200.00!!! I officially become a senior! I will take the perks with gratitude!
So I hope everyone has a great day! Sunny skies and may your problems all be little ones!

Oh and DH's DGGD passed the NYPD physical yesterday so she moves to step 2 in her application for the police dept!! Keeping fingers crossed!

Good Morning. Sounds like you've got a fun day ahead of you Blondie. I've got some crocus blooming and my daffodils, tulips and hyacinths as well as my tiger lilies are making their appearance too. So spring is really here. :) Haven't been outside working in the gardens yet though. I am looking forward to that. I am planning in my head though.

The sun is shining here this morning but rain is headed our way (some places may see some snow). So, the question for me this morning is what do I wear to work? Guess I better go decide and get a few other things done before leaving for work. Have a terrific Tuesday everyone.

Good Morning Blondie and all!

Blondie, you have a wonderful day planned - enjoy it!

Yesterday went fairly well and today should be a good day. We're having some really nice Spring weather and I'm just loving it. We're in for some much needed rain later this week so hopefully it fills up the large cracks in the ground that have widened all winter with not much precipitation. Hubs got the mower out last evening and mowed around the house - yes, the grass is already greening up and growing so alas, mowing season has begun. That's my job all summer and I love it most of the time. Sitting on the mower and buzzing around for a few hours is some really good pondering and thinking time, not to mention getting a few sun rays too.

Off to get ready for work and check on what the fur kids are raising a ruckus about outside. Cody is howling at the coyotes and hitting the high notes too. I should record that.

Hugs, smiles and prayers for all today!

Good morning
I had a great sleep last night, hardly any coughing since I got this flu. Still have a sore throat that just won't seem to go away but finally its starting to look like there may be hope of recovery. It has been a wicked bug and I have been sick since March 2.

Had a fun day with my sis yesterday- she is taking her first quilting class and so I joined too to be a supporter. I really think she is going to be hooked very soon. Today I meet with my old dolls to sew heart pillows. Such a wonderful example of growing older gracefully. These ladies are so active, it is just wonderful.

One of the heart pillow ladies gave me her mother's old treadle sewing machine. The cabinet is in pretty good shape but could use a spruce up. I called one place called "dip and strip" and they wanted $500 to do just the wood portion. Yikes!! So my dad "who has turned into the energizer bunny since mom passed" started looking around for me and found out that our local Community Living take on projects like this. CL is an organization who, for one thing, find meaningful work for people with disabilities or developmental disabilities. They will strip down the wood and fix the iron legs (which are a bit rusty) and refinish both the wood and iron for about $100. It may be gone for 3 months but that is ok with me. I'm in no hurry and I really like the idea of helping Community Living.

Well I need to finish off this coffee and get my day going. Hoping to do most of my Easter grocery shopping today so I can avoid the stores on the weekend. Also hope to get some sewing done. Hubs has almost finished painting my sewing room and I am loving it, I will post pictures once I get moved in.

Have a great Tuesday and always SMILE when you can.

Morning Everyone,

It's going to be a lovely day until the rain rolls in for the next couple days. I have to drive a water heater to Cuba today and also do a plumbing repair while I'm there. The earlier I get there the sooner I can get back home. We have two vacancies and we need them to fill up. Please help me pray that we get some good responses to our ad.

I did a little sewing yesterday and it felt so nice to be able to concentrate on something creative. I'm working on a Chopped quilt. There's quite a bit of sewing to make the blocks but it's all very simple sewing, just what I need right now. It's amazing how a little sewing can lift my spirits.

Hugs All Around...have a good Tuesday everyone!

Good morning! Sounds like everyone is busy busy busy! Me too...with work...sigh! The Lebanon location got put pack on my list of duties, so I am currently split between 3 locations..makes it challenging. It also weakened my home location as I pulled a manager out of there to put up in Lebanon temporarily. The good news is...I am suppose to be on vacation next week...let's hope nothing blows up between now an then. Next week I am going to go over to my mil home and pick up the things DH wanted. DS is going to be the heavyweight and help get everything in the uhaul. I have no idea where I am going to put most of it...besides the bedroom suite that my dd had asked for. Have given the current suite to my xsil. Hopefully she can come and get the rest of it this weekend. Will make it easier when we get home. Not looking forward to going. Haven't been there since she passed away. Feeling so bad for dh.

Well I better get a move on...lots to do! Have a great day!!

Good morning friends. Up late this morning. I don't know why I have been so tired of late. I slept all afternoon yesterday.

What a weekend. Fairies all over the place. Maizyn was so excited about her party. Today is her actual birthday and this morning they gave her a new bike. Phil says she was very excited about that.

She was over the moon with the new quilt as well.

I did not do much of anything yesterday. I did go out last night, delivered one quilt to a cancer patient and then it was craft night to get flowers and stuff made for our Lionette Rally coming up.

Today I may sew up a new tote, pattern tester for the second time. I am glad I did not start as the pattern has changed a little bit.

Have a great day everyone.

Monique that looks like one very excited and happy girl!

Had a rough start to the day today. Liam does NOT like to brush his teeth...and we can't figure out why other than he's just being lazy. So his dad got really upset about it, banned him from electronics tonight and is making him write an essay tonight on why he doesn't brush his teeth. Well this really upset Liam and he was crying most of the morning. I wish his dad wouldn't discuss stuff like this with him BEFORE he has to go to school for the day! I was very annoyed by this. It could have waited until tonight but no he had to ruin the kids entire day! I know it has to be addressed but do you have to ruin his entire day? And of course, I'm the one who has to deal with the fall out of Liam being so upset and it breaks my heart to send him to school when he's that upset. All I had time for was one quick cuddle. So now my day is also starting out sad. sigh.

Barb good luck with your plumbing! I sure do envy your abilities and stamina! Hope your places get rented soon!

Have a great day everyone. Sending love and hugs to all! xoxox

By the time I finish reading what everyone has been doing I'm totally worn out.

Spent part of yesterday visiting with a dear friend. Came home and helped Al finish mowing (yes, mowing) the front yard. Now the back needs attention. The grass in the lower part of the front was about 8-9 inches tall. How did that happen?

Today will be spent with Li'l Sis and Big Bro and their spouses. We always look forward to these times. Now if I could just come up with a great April Fools Joke for them . . . mind doesn't work that way, I guess, but maybe something will spark some creativity.

Looking forward to April - not sure about a Shop Hop in Kansas, but if Sis will go . . . then there's the Kona Days at Missouri Star. And we leave on the 21st to head to PADUCAH!! I think I'd better go shoe shopping!

Up early for me. I have to take DD and Gabe to his pre op consult. My poor little man. I am dreading the next few weeks. DD had her cast changed yesterday to a walking cast...but still is not going to be mobile for a while. Gabe has his surgery Fri.,and I will be at the hospital with them until he is released. 3-5 days. Gary has his on the 15th. That will be 2-3 days in the hospital for us. Yes I will be staying around the clock with him too. I am just trying to heal up, before Friday. My hands are a mess, and I have a huge tear on my inner thigh, from a piece of tape. I want new skin. I have been putting together things to take with me, so I have hand sewing to do. At least that is the plan. I also worked on laundry yesterday...all those trips up and down the stairs kicked my butt, and I had to take a nap yesterday afternoon. Well off to get ready. Hugs and blessings to all. Prayers for those in need.

Good Morning! Everyone sounds so busy. Mom's still asleep, which is a blessing after yesterday's night with her. CNA and RN come today to check up on her. Hopefully sleeping all night will adjust her attitude about everything.

I'm going to Back Side Fabric's today to get batting and backing for two quilts. My pocket book will be lighter, but it will be nice to see all the pretty fabric Christine has.

I got the Veggie Tale left over material box out yesterday. I was thrilled I have plenty to do Esther's Veggie Tale quilt, without having to search for more. I'll have to find my graph paper picture that I worked from. I'm tempted to make this one QAYG, We'll see, I'm sure I'll need a little something to do between these two queen sized quilts.

Have a great day everyone.

Good morning! It's spring break time for my local grandkids, so we took a road trip to one of Missouri's more interesting geological sites, Elephant Rocks State Park. We spent hours climbing, exploring and having fun. It was a fabulous day weatherwise! Still very little signs of spring in the Missouri woods, but that will come soon enough!

I stopped at Tandy Leather on my way home and got some leather and accessories for purse making and costumes. I got a piece of leather that is supposed to be from a half a cow, wow, that is one huge cow, because it is over 10 feet long! I'm going to make some belts and sword scabbards for MacBeth from this piece. Got a pretty piece of black for purses. I'm looking forward to trying to work with it.

Hope you all have a good day.

Good morning......

Yesterday they moved the computer server equipment out of my office YEAH!!! They left a little bit of a mess for me to clean up so I moved some stuff and swept. Got the help of a maintenance man to put some stuff in the storage room. Have a little more to do. Then I'm going to have them paint my office, I think I'm going to go with a light purple and make some valances for my window.

I finished up my practice quilt last night. Tonight I'm going to put the second border on the hummingbird quilt and hopefully get the backing pieced together and on the frame. I can't wait to see that with all the hummingbirds quilted into it.



I'm going to Back Side Fabric's today to get batting and backing for two quilts. My pocket book will be lighter, but it will be nice to see all the pretty fabric Christine has.

I love Backside Fabrics. I order most of my wide backing from there.

Well need to get some more stuff straightened up in my office and then get my work done.

Have a wonderful day!!!!

Monique, she looks So Happy with her new Frozen girls quilt. She's a real cutie. Bday party must have been a big success with so many fairies.

I'm with Sandy, after reading everyone's posts I'm exhausted. Already did the kitchen and bathroom floors this morning while I was having breakfast and rest of the morning I will be back finishing the wall hanging I thought I would finish yesterday. Don't care for the stitching I did to show some lines in the pattern and will be taking them out today. They are a small decorative stitch and it will take some time and lots of patience. Need to get this one out of the way because I need to pull fabrics for new great grandson Christine's baby quilt.

Grandma Nan, Thanks for the reminder about shopping early this week. I'm not making Easter Dinner as we'll be at DS#2's but want to avoid the crowds so we'll get shoppuing done today after we drop DH's van off for maintenance.

What a busy weekend, and busy week ahead!!!

Kit Kat had his blood drawn this morning. Doc's face was looking worried, which scares me. We'll be getting results back as early as this afternoon depending on the lab's schedule that they send it to. I'm just trying to take it one step at at time and not jump ahead too far... my little buddy sleeps under the quilts I'm working on, curls under the covers with me at night... runs up to me when I call him... as sick as he gets he still wants to play.
We're hoping that his new friend will help fill in the play time and comfort when we're gone to minimize the stress. He hates being alone. We were approved for our fur friend application so we'll set up a pick up tonight. My parents are unusually supportive of this venture, which makes me wonder if everyone sees or knows something I don't.

Sophie is continuing to enjoy and learn how to ride her little tricycle. Hopefully soon she can ride around the block on walks. Yesterday we even played "car wash" with it and she scrubbed and dried off her ride.
She's loving the painting that she's been doing... DH got his printer working so I can print off pictures instead of trying to draw stuff LOL.

Getting ready for spring here with ideas of where the garden will be, what we'll plant etc. The sun feels so good today, and so far no winds to spoil the temp.

Prayers and hugs to all.
Marilyn, I would donate skin if I could... I can't imagine your agony. Ouch and gentle hugs.

Awakened to leaden skies and the threat of rain, and grass, let's not talk grass right now! I swear I could bale my yard! But all my irises are flagging like crazy, and the Knockouts are budding up furiously too! We'll see if March goes out like a lion today, supposed to have thunderstorms. Nothing spectacular going on here, well other than sewing, to me that's spectacular, and off to enjoy my first cuppah! Hugs and Blessings to all, and especially those that need them. :D

Good afternoon! It's been a busy morning here, cooking and doing laundry... neither is my favorite pastime. I just took a lunch break and will be working on taxes this afternoon. I'm close to done with that job and I'll be glad when it's completed so I can get back to sewing more. There goes the buzzer on the dryer...folding time!

Yay! DH had no problems visible during the colonoscopy so he is free for another 10 years. :) He was so hungry after almost nothing but lemon ice yesterday that he wanted a run thru the McDonald's for fish fillets and a chocolate shake and fries. lol He stays awake for his whole procedure and watches his guts on the monitor. Man, when I had my procedure, I counted backwards from 100 and by 97 I was out!

Good for your DH!!! I made them put me out during my colonoscopy. The gave the that Michael Jackson drug - propofyll (sp?). It doesn't make you feel groggy or out of sorts when waking up from it. Then my DH took me to lunch and I could have eaten a horse, I was so hungry.

Wendy - I know what Liam's problem is.

He is a NORMAL kid. They don't like to brush their teeth. Or take baths.

I am late to the game today. Getting ready to get ready to go to work tonight. It has become such a struggle lately. To make it worse, my throat is sore and I am feeling achy and a little chilled. UGH. I cannot be sick for my weekend. I have to get ready for Easter Dinner.

Hope everyone else has a Blessed Day and Night!
