    Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

    Good morning all of you lovely friends. How has your weekend been? Yesterday, hubby and I took our good friend out for breakfast and then went to 2 auction sales. We did not stay long or buy anything. There was really nothing we couldn't live without. I quilted most of the afternoon and downloaded lots of episodes of Grey's Anatomy to watch later. I need to get caught up with that show.

    Are there any fans of curling here? It is a huge sport here in Canada and we have been watching with great interest. Ontario beat out Manitoba last night and it was an awesome game. Amazing what those curlers can do. If anyone is interested I believe it is on the TSN network. The Scotties Tournament of Hearts is being played in Kingston, Ontario and next year it is in Montreal, Quebec. Thinking of going next year.

    We may go to another auction sale today and then stop in for a birthday surprise at my friend Donna's place.

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

    Good Morning everyone.

    Curling is not a big sport down here in the lower 48. But today is the Daytona 500 NASCAR race. I am so bummed because I cannot get the FOX channel here so I won't be able to watch it. I could follow it on the computer on a lap by lap read out. But DH wants to go to walk around a gun show today in Lebanon, MO and wants me to go no NASCAR for me They had a horrific wreck at the Nationwide race there yesterday. I always hate to hear about those.

    The only good thing about going with DH today will be a chance to go out to eat.

    Looks to be the start of a sunny day. So I will strap on a smile and enjoy the day.

    Hugs and prayers to all.

      Good morning all, we are getting ready for round two of the snow storm they are calling for another 6 to 12 inches starting tomorrow. That on top of the 9+ inches from the last one and I may not get out for days.

      I have some projects started so will work on those later day. Have a great day and be safe.

        Hi, Another sleepyhead awake this sunny Sunday. Slept away most of yesterday and am finally feeling rested and over my cold. Don't follow curling or NASCAR so skipping tv today will be no problem. Just hope DH is feeling better so I can get him to go out for lunch or something. We've both been pretty much housebound the past 2 weeks with our colds and I think getting out in the fresh air will do both of us a world of good. Might be a good idea to open some windows while we're gone and get some fresh moist air into the house.

        Been so inactive I can't remember where I put my lighthouse block project, need to work on it as it's due in a week or so. Been off coffee while I had my cold but right now I could do with a nice big mug. need%2520more%2520coffee.jpg

          Have a wonderful Sunday everyone. My day involves grocery shopping in the morning and our monthly trip to Sam's this afternoon. So exciting - not I hope to work some quilting in somewhere. We're supposed to be getting more snow early this week -- I either hope we get enough to have a whole day off work or nothing. Happy quilting!

            The sun is shining so bright this morning - I love it!
            My hubby is not feeling too well this morning; he started feeling very ill yesterday! Sounds like the flu or something!! It will be a day of rest for him, which will be weird because he is rarely sick.
            Yesterday he was talking about watching NASCAR today, so now I think that will happen from the couch!
            I will be out getting our groceries for the week and I will sneak a stop at the fabric store to buy a ruler - I need a big square ruler for squaring up some blocks - either a 12" or 16". I have been working on a small quilt for my daughter and it would be nice to get the top completed today!
            Have a great day everyone!


              Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

              Good morning! I woke up with a headache...too much excitement yesterday I guess. Caffeine and Tylenol should do the trick. Monique, I've watched curling on TV and think I'd enjoy seeing an actual match. It's so different from the sports we have here. I'm a GRITS (girl raised in the south) but I've never been a NASCAR fan. Some would call that southern treason.

                Happy Sunday Folksies!

                Yep, it's me. Unusual for me to get online on Sunday - been up since before the crack of dawn and up late last night. Reckon I will want a nap later. I just got back from my dear sister's house. Her favorite little quaker birdie, Max, died this morning. She is just devastated. I must admit to shedding some tears as well. Such a smart and happy bird, he was. I always called him my flirty birdy. Jan, I know you will appreciate the emotions, as he was such a smart and talkative fella, putting sentences together from words he knew. We were never sure of his age or actually his sex, but when she bought him, he had been "rescued" from a person who had Parkinson's and could no longer care for him. He was a perfect fit for my sis and she was definitely his person.

                Mom's gout is doing better. I don't think hers was a food flare up; she is a very careful eater but I do think hers is because she is always pushing wheelbarrels of wood to her house when no one is around. Too independent. Everytime I go down there she has just brought wood up. Can't wait on anyone. I will be so glad when winter is over. It just seems that whenever she overdoes, she gets a flare up. Her body will tell what she's been up to, even when she stays mum.

                I had crazy dreams last night. Dreamt about our Jenny and our Ruby. Nutsy dreams; but entertaining. See, even in my sleep I am a happy camper! I was showing Jenny how to sculpt a doll face over a gourd and then I showed her how to make a doll quilt that would be a perfect match for the doll. lol. And Ruby! In my dream, she and Don showed up at my house, and we were sorting fabric scraps. I betcha we would do that in life, not just dreams. And I kept telling Don that he looked like Cesar the Dog Whisperer. Where in the world do dreams come from!

                Today my middle son will be coming home for a birthday bash. I am making roast beef, mashed taters, green beans, corn, gravy, rolls, etc. Last night I made him a delicious looking carrot cake. My cakes are never pretty but this one is passable. Do you think anyone cares how lopsided my cakes are? I am certainly not the cook or baker my sis is - it all tastes better than it looks, hahaha. At least my son will know that it will be a treat for him, since he loves, loves, loves carrot cake.

                Monique, I have only watched curling a few times on a sports channel and really don't understand it. The only sport I really follow is football, thanks to Daddy. I can handle baseball, but it is rather boring. If I was a man, I would like to play football.

                Okay, folksies, I do have some cleaning to do before the kids arrive.

                  Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

                  No curling here. I think we will have a pretty relaxed day at our house. I have a house guest that is quite chemically sensitive so won't have the string of neighbor kids in and out. They will all get to play outside in the snow. LOL I am hoping to get to quilt a bit this afternoon but if now will probably watch a movie with my friend.

                  I actually enjoy days like this because I don't feel I HAVE to do anything other than cook.
                  Be blessed,

                  God has a plan and it is a good plan.

                    Good Morning,

                    I've been sick all weekend, but DH has been taking good care of me. I go to the doctor tomorrow and hopefully he will give me some strong meds to kick this stuff. I seldom get this kind of stuff.

                    We will watch NASCAR today. We saw the big wreck yesterday at the Nationwide sad.

                    Okay, I'm done being sociable for the day...gonna crawl back into bed and revert to my cranky self!

                    I'm much nicer when I'm well....Hugs, Barb

                      Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

                      Not into Nascar. Don't think I've ever seen curling. I'll probably do some cleaning and sewing. I'm working on a scrappy trip around the world quilt. Hubby feels the need to go to the cabin for some alone time occasionally so he is going this afternoon after church and staying til tomorrow evening. I love the cabin too but in the winter there is no running water and the only heat is space heaters. Not for me. I'll go when the weather warms up. I love having him around but I'm glad he is ok with us spending time alone too. I actually get to touch the remote when he isn't here I have some movies picked out on Amazon Prime that I want to watch. He would call them chic flicks so I can watch without the satire. Hope everyone has a wonderful Sunday whatever you are doing.


                        Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

                        Good morning everyone! Great day yesterday. DD had to write a story for the paper about the greyhound group in town, so DH and I packed up and went with her to watch Reagan while she got her interviews. DH I swear is morphing to Huell Howser. He was chatting it up with everyone and reporting back to DD with what he found out. I do love that man! Greyhounds are great dogs. Guess they sleep 23 out of 24 hours, are great pets for condos, etc. These were all rescues from the dog races and certainly pampered pets with their little fleece coats and blingy collars on. DD came back to the house and I am teaching her to sew. We made an apron yesterday ala Jenny's tute and she said, "Mom, I think I have a new hobby! I'm having so much fun with you!" - Music to a mom's ears. DGS was getting rowdy in the jumper and squealing the whole time. I think he enjoyed the day as well. Love and hugs to all and prayers for them as need them.

                          Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

                          We are deep in the mess remodel that has taken over the house! The dining room is full of boxes of pots and pans and flour bins. The kitchen has the stove in the middle of the path and plaster dust lovingly cleaned up, but lingering in the air, it seems. The basement has a temporary kitchen set up, so lots of trips up and down to just warm up precooked meals. Trying to clean here is like brushing your teeth while still eating Oreo cookies! Good news......the plaster is down and we have supplies on hand for the next phase. Today we add another electrical outlet, move the tv cords into the wall, and put up cement board for the new tile. Tomorrow the template guy comes! Give us another couple of weeks.......we will be nuts by then or living with a finished kitchen!!! And to think we remodel at least one room a year.....times 21 would think we would be done by now!!!

                          No sewing, no quilting, just school and working on the house for now. I hope to sneak in some time this week in the evenings to keep up with the quilt along, but we will see how it goes. Enjoy it for me..........for now!


                            Re: Wakey, wakey it's Sunday

                            - Gooooooood Morning everyone : )

                            yesterday was a great day . . went down to the local upholstery -- the owner was selling off her stash of quilters fabric at $2.00 a yard and 50 cents for a fat quarter -- so I picked up over 50 yards of some great fabric . . and she gave 2 tapestry sample books -
                            so I guess I will be washing some of that fabric today and get it ironed and folded and ready for many many uses .
                            then work on the mini pillow wreath - a friend of the SIL - her mother is going home in a few days so Tuesday will be girls night out
                            this month -- I'm making the wreath for the friends mother - she and I have such a great laughs together -

                            well . . my baby boy was 35 yesterday *reminiscing about the blizzard of '78*~ ok now -- I dn't feel a bit over 32 myself . .
                            its the body that is in pain at times . . LOL*~ . . . anyway . . I guess my son thought since it was his Birthday that he could pop the big question to me and hubby -- about borrowing our truck and 5th wheel camper . . . I never laughed so hard in my life . .
                            and then told . . well reminded him that there are few things in life you don't loan out . . your vacuum cleaner, your carpet cleaner,
                            your sewing machine, your hand mixer, your bread machine, your welder, your lawn tractor just to name a few and you darn
                            sure don't loan out your dually and camper -
                            so I told him about a 5th wheel camper that was up for sale around the corner from us -
                            when he stops in . in a day or two on his way to Venice, he'll check out the 5th wheel . .
                            it would be a great starter camper - his truck would pull it without any issues . .

                            everything is budding out so quickly here - my sinuses have gone wild - when the pecan trees start to bud -- then spring will
                            have sprung . .

                            aaaaaw the sport of Curling --- I've heard of it - I've watched it on the news and you tube -- but the only curling going on here
                            is the de-curling of my hair . . I have so many curls - for me to flat iron my hair -- with it so long -- it takes me almost 2 hours to straighten my hair -- I could put Shirley Temple to shame . . LOL*~
                            BLONDIE . . do you even de-curl someone's hair? -
                            when I want long silky hair -- once in awhile I'll pay someone to de-curl me :|

                            well off to rustle through the big bag of fabric I picked up yesterday and get some of it washed
                            and finish off the wreath . .

                            ya'll have a great and wonderful day

                            lots of hugz, thoughts, and prayers to all in need

                              Good morning all! Sunny and not a sign of the "staggering amount of rain" that an article on CNN called for in the southeast--as of yet...
                              Grocery shopping, some vacuuming and sweeping at the least are in the list for today, as Layla is staying over tonight....

                              If there is hockey, I am sure it will be on, as DD is home today trying to finish her midterm paper... Have to get myself back into the rhythm, I go back to work on Wed.... Foot aches this moment, but has been pretty good if I leave shoes on....

                              Take care, all!
