    Happy Wednesday

    Happy Wednesday folksies! And a happy anniversary to me! Seventeen years ago, the big man and I jumped the broom. And I've been riding one ever since. nyuk, nyuck, nyuck. Just kidding. But it IS my anniversary and while I may not ride a broom, I can sure sweep a mean one.

    I had been a single mother for what seemed like an eternity when I met Larry.

    I told him "I don't need a man, I need a donkey."

    He replied "Where in the back forty do you want me to kick up my heels ~ I'll hee haw for you."
    Wow, the beginning of true love! I was as serious as that groundhog eating my vegetables this past summer and so was he! Luscious is a very mellow, patient kinda fella. I would arrive home from work to see him working in my yard, trimming hedges, whatever. He always had music playing some of my favorite groups of all times - Marshall Tucker Band, The Travelling Wilburys ~ Who can resist a good man and good music? Hubba, hubba, hubba

    He is an old fashioned kinda guy as well. Why he even asked my dear old Daddy if he thought it was a good idea to ask me to marry him and what would he do if I said no? The way my Daddy would tell it, "I would then look up at the boy (cuz the boy is about 6'4") and say, Boy, if she didn't want you sniffing around, she'da shooed you away with that broom already. Go ahead and ask her. If she says no, I will eat your hat."

    Larry is the mushy one in the marriage; I am not. He buys the best cards and gifts and flowers. He even does it on un events! He never forgets dates like birthdays, anniversaries. The only reason I remember my anniversary is because I have one of those lists on the computer to remind me. That doesn't make me a bad wife does it? I am good at other things. I have a great sense of humor, I am loyal, faithful, and Larry thinks I am easy on the eyes. I have also learned how to turn around three times before I sit down. I would make a wonderful lap dog.

    Think I will make him some chicken and dumplings for an anniversary dinner. Have a wonderful day, everyone!

              Happy anniversary Blondie. Chicken and dumplings sounds like the perfect anniversary dinner to me! Enjoy your day.

                  HAPPY ANNIVERSARY BLONDIE AND LARRY. May you have many many more together. xoxoxoxoxo (Chicken & dumplings, huh. Never had that. Would you share your recipe?)

                  Wow, I would like to know who is speeding up time. I have decided I need a new bra (s) and a new prosthetic as well. I called my lady that I had found years ago and SHE RETIRED!! Awww, made me sad. I really liked her. There is another shop in Ottawa that specializes in such things. I called and made an appointment for tomorrow. The lady on the phone was so nice. Plus they are having an open house as well. So we will see what I come home with tomorrow. These bras and prosthetics are not cheap, let me tell you. Bras around $80 and prosthetics in the hundreds! I consider it a Christmas gift to me.

                  Yesterday I actually got into my sewing room. I started a Christmas card holder for my SS. That will get finished today. I also have bingo tonight at the seniors home.

                  Have a wonderful day everyone.
                  Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

                    HAPPY ANNIVERSARY to a very special couple! What a great story. One where it is evident you were both meant for each other.

                    I am off soon for annual eye exam and then to the LAQ to pick up/drop off some quilt tops. Trying to get the UFO pile down! One of these days I am going to get a camera and learn how to post pictures. You can 'teach an old dog new tricks', it just takes a bit longer! hehe

                    Have a good day all you Quilty Friends. Happy sewing!


                      Re: Happy Wednesday

                      Happy Anniversary to you! That was a special story this morning and put a smile on my face, may you celebrate many more!

                      A rainy day today but sice I have housework to do won't make much difference. Want to start looking through some of my fabric and patterns today to maybe find some cute ideas for Christmas gifts. Off to get a cup of coffee cause my eyes are just about open and the brain is still foggy.

                      Have a great day everyone!

                        Happy Anniversary to a wonderful couple!

                        Not much happening around here this morning just enjoy a cuppa before heading into work. Already making my list of things I want to get done this weekend as I do have the whole weekend off again this week. I could really get use to having every weekend off all though that will never happen. Oh well a girl can wish can't she. Well off to get ready to head out the door.


                          Re: Happy Wednesday

                          Oh Blondie, thank you so much for sharing your story! Happy Anniversary!! You two have a great thing Congrats!!
                          Finished is way better than perfect! :icon_bigsmile:


                            Re: Happy Wednesday

                            Blondie....Wishing you and LL a wonderful anniversary!! When it's good, it's good....and you guys are so good together! Doesn't the time fly!!

                            I'm heading back to the old house this morning to do some more painting. I would like to surprise DH and have one whole room painted and trimmed. That would be a big relief for him. Yesterday I put on an oldies station on the radio and enjoyed the afternoon working.

                            Slowly the supplies I need for my daughter's Luna Notte quilt are arriving. Finding and ordering the charms, jellyrolls and yardage has been like piecework....a little bit here and a little bit there. Even after ordering some of the items I was notified they are permanently out of stock, so the search was back on. I have everything now except the two jellyrolls and when I get them I'll feel relieved.

                            We have been having wonderful weather but it is coming to an end this weekend.

                            I hope everyone has a good Wednesday....stay safe! Hugs, Barb
