    Happy Sunday ~ what happened to Saturday?



    Good Morning
    I am happy to be in; hope it "takes" this time. I was in yesterday morning, posted a good day and visited a few other threads and when I came home yesterday, had the same problem. Hmmm. disappearing threads. I am beginning to get paranoid. Is it my breath, Al?

    Since that is about the only thing I remember about Saturday until I have my limit of coffee, I will say that I am hoping today stays Sunny, I have put in my order for less wind - we could've qualified to be called the Windy something or other the past two days -

    I am also making progress on the scrap sorting/busting/ organizing. As with everything else in my house, I have not been keeping up with anything since Christmas time. I am getting back on track.slowly but surely.

    Have a great day, ladies.

    Re: Happy Sunday ~ what happened to Saturday?

    Good morning everyone! Sunny here and looking forward to a beautiful day. I'm off to see a lady who advertised cotton fabric at $1. to $2. a yard on Craigs List. Should be interesting. Then to see Dad and what he's up to.

    Yesterday I started doing taxes at 2 PM. I got off the computer at 11 PM. Had to do both son's and ours. And, truly, they weren't complicated - just a zillion screens to go through. Glad they are finished.

    Today I've also got to replant some indoor house plants - poor things have been neglected and showing their roots! How sad is that. I can't believe they are still alive.

    I'll check back in later to see what you are all up to. Listening to your music today, Blondie. Over the Rainbow is one of my favorites.

    Hugs,

      Looks like we are going to have a stellar day here. I plan on working in the yard. Yesterday I decided to become a broody hen. I'm trying to hatch some eggs using an electric skillet. Not sure if it will work--I'm getting different success rates from others who have tried on the web. I'm having a hard time getting the temperature to stabilize. I started them last night and the temp went up pretty high about an hour. I have a dozen "cooking" right now, I would be happy if only one hatched. I'm hoping they will hatch the night before Easter. I think the grandkids will just love baby chicks for Easter.

        Lisa is watching for baby chicks to hatch and I've been watching this: http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles#...medium=3064708

        Hope that works for you - it's a live cam of an American Bald Eagle nest in NE Iowa. Two chicks have hatched in the last two days and the third is expected to hatch either today or tomorrow. It has been great fun.

        Loafed all day yesterday. Neither Al nor I had any gumption. Remember my grandparents saying 'my git up and go got up and went'. Couldn't understand it but we did take advantage of not being up to snuff and did nap and nap and nap some more.

        Not much else happening - windy like everyone else. But, the sun is OUT!! Like a niece posted on facebook - "this is what spring should be . . . "
        Sometimes, when there's a raging fire,
        it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

          Okay, my post didn't post.

          I had shared a link: http://www.ustream.tv/decoraheagles#...medium=3064708

          Lisa is hatching chicks and I'm watching baby eagles hatch. The link is for a live cam in NE Iowa and there have been two baby eagles hatch in the last two days with the third one believed to be ready for today or tomorrow. It has been so much fun watching the parents.

          Loafed all day yesterday. Al and I both suffered from our 'git up and go got up and went' syndrome. We napped, napped, and then napped. Unusual for both of us. Hope today is much better.

          Windy here today, too. As a niece posted on facebook 'this is what spring is supposed to be . . . '

          Hope everyone has a great day!!

              Morning!
              Glad to see that it may have been computer problems instead of personal that kept everybody from checking in. I worry a bit when I don't hear from all y'all every few days!
              I'm up, but not moving so fast this morning. The backs of my thighs (hamstrings?), shoulders, and hands are a bit stiff and sore this morning. Too much bending over weeding yesterday. My knees don't like it if I crawl around on them, even with one of those squishy things, so I end up bending at the waist. I'm sure that it's good for the muscle tone, but it's a pain when I first get started every spring! If I'm feeling up to it, I'll be headed out to finish off the last bed and a half this afternoon. I think it's buggin me more to look out there and see the job part done than it was when I hadn't touched it at all!
              I think I'll work on a bit of sewing this morning until it warms up.
              Here's to a sunny spring day for all of my quilty friends!
              Hugs, Cathy

                Hope everyone is having a great day. Sunny and windy here in NJ, just like most of y'all... Temp hovering around 50 so Mike and I aren't doing any yard work as yet. In my 30s I'd be out there, but not now that I'm more "mature" lol.

                Got my Quilts for Kids quilt finished and ready to mail. Put together the top of another Baskets of Flowers table runner, this one hopefully for a Chinese Auction, if it comes out respectable enough to send out into the world. If not... I'll have another table runner for myself, lol. I'm on a roll with the runner, but have to stop and attend a family gathering this afternoon. Hope to at least get it sandwiched today after the get together.

                Must get off the computer and go make myself beautiful :-).

                  Hi all,
                  I totally missed yesterday. All the BF's family was over early yesterday afternoon and I made Italian Beefs and Mexican Rice so we could watch both the baseball and basketball games. Had fun making cookies with Frankie, but he licked every one as they went on the cookie sheet. That's what I get for putting an almost 2 year old in charge of the quality control! They all left about 7 pm and after clean-up and a huge sigh, BF and I just crashed and watched tv.
                  Very windy here today also and sun peeked out but only for a few minutes. BF went off to check on his big BBQ pig roaster contraption, meeting some guy that wants to rent it for an event so I thought I would pop on here for a few secs to get some inspiration. I love to get lost in "Blog Land", there is so much out there!
                  Think I will take advantage of the quiet time to sew up a few more of the Surfer Girl D9P blocks and maybe make Frankie an apron for his next visit to Grandma Patti's kitchen!
                  Winner, winner, chicken dinner and I'm out.....

                      Dear Forum Friends,

                      I am very sorry I subjected you all to the pervert with the lack of quilting skills. I, too, was simply flabbergasted beyond words and offended by his quilt.

                      I will not post offensive videos again. I promise. I am busy writing this 100 times on my blackboard.

                      Trust me, Paula, the baby eagles are safe and darling.
