    It's Thursday, Oh My!

    Welcome to Thursday, Ladies

    It will be a short day at work for me today. Which is good for me but not for my wallet. Still, I can always make lemonade. I haven't accomplished much sewing at all; just some hand quilting last night; I did get some canning done and then fixed a nice big veggie dinner with what was left. My tummy was very happy. Glad I got that done because the weather folk are saying the heat is coming back today . . . didn't know it went anywhere! Lisa, I will take some cool weather from you!

    Cathy, I need some hay for my garden for wintering. Also some good manure. Is goat manure hot? Or is it more like horse, cow that can be applied without burning?

    Newbie, love bluegrass music; cut my teeth on flat footing to those marvelous stringed instruments.

    , hope your back is better today. I hurt for you.

    Ladies, hope you are going to enjoy this lovely day wherever you are. Review and count your many blessings.

    Sewing mends the soul.

    OH dear Blondie IT IS FRIDAY!!!!! You have missed another day.

    Well I am back from vacation. No hydro, no phone and no noise. Wonderful and quiet. Good company and good food. Got to fish as much as I liked. And I was the fisherwoman, caught the most. Had a great time.

    Off again to my son's in Kingston today. He graduates tomorrow from his course and of course Mom wouldn't want to miss it. AND I need a baby fix. Haven't seen Maizyn since July 9. Missing her lots.

    So not much quilting in the next few days at least. Wishing you all a wonderful weekend.

          Blondie, you're's Thursday. I'm taking your message to heart and reviewing and counting my many blessings. I try to live with an attitude of gratitude. We all have so many things to be thankful for, but if we're not mindful of that it's easy to get caught in the negative side of things. A few years ago I starting writing in a gratitude journal and I'm still keeping up with it. The journal itself is a blessing because I can look back over the years and remember blessings I forgot about. We are women/men who have an added blessing of sharing our creativity with others. Wishing you all a blessed day. Barb

              I think Monique did more on her vacation than throw a few hooks in the water . . . MONIQUE, it's THURSDAY. :-)

              I'm beginning to think I am up too early today . . . the brain is numb. I just cleaned my glasses but think my eyeballs need cleaned, too as everything is pretty fuzzy today. So, I'm going to lay low and not bore everyone here.

              Cheers, blessings, prayers, hugs, and good tidings to all.

                  Happy Day everyone!
                  I wondered where the 'respite' from the heat was yesterday too. I was at Dads from 10 in the morning until 8 at night and had to take long breaks. Turned on Dads tv and the weather gal said - enjoy the respite from the heat because it's coming again up to and through the weekend. As I'm sitting there with sweat pouring over me, drinking my water, wondering where this gal is filming from.
                  Did get lots done without him hovering over me telling me how to do it all. De-weeded, trimmed branches, mowed, picked the garden, watered the garden, and threw some clean sheets on his bed. Even washed up some winter blankets for him. It's ready for him when he comes home tomorrow night. When I got home, I crawled into bed.

                  Off to the dentist for me this morning. He told me back in February that I have a small cavity and I told him I'd come in the summer. It's summer. I'd rather go other places than the dentist, but it's just a little cavity so we'll get it over and done with.

                  Odie is in the air. They left at 1:17 PM yesterday and should land in South Korea around 110 this morning. Please keep praying for his pilots. He has his cell phone and said he will text again if he can once they land. He's not sure if the phone will work over there.

                  Better get the day started.


                  What if you woke up today and the only things you had were the things you thanked God for yesterday? :icon_hug:quilting trish

                    Good Morning!
                    Blondie, I'd suggest that you compost all manure at least one year before adding it to your garden. If you can't, then add the fresh stuff sparingly in the fall once you have pulled everything up, and let it age over the winter. Then till it under in the spring once the ground can be worked. The year long composting will kill off most of the seeds that are left in the poo and break down the clumps (turn or till it over a couple of times). We have built some fine gardens using our compost. I'd say it is free, but I know how much money went in the front end!
                    I don't know, Trish, all of the dentist offices I have ever been in are like an ice box. The dentist in summer seems like a fine idea to me!
                    Of course we'll keep Odie in our prayers. Somebody has to protect our service men and women. Our fearless leaders aren't doing such a hot job of anything at the moment.
                    Rhonda: burgers, hotdogs, or pizza is the universal answer to most house guests with kids!
                    Barb: I like the idea of a blessings journal. Now to find the time to write in it....
                    I need to get on with the day as well. Morning chores, speech therapy for Em, the bank, the feed mill, and the grocery store are on the errands list. Then I have to figure out how to re-stack 75-100 bales of really sloppily baled hay, so I can get the new stuff in the barn tomorrow. Hmmm. It might be pizza night here too! I'd better get started!
                    You all take care and have a great day! Cathy

                        Happy Thursday to everyone
                        Oh! I am terrible about what day it is. Being retired does that to you. I will talk about it being Friday when it is only Thursday!! And I do it alot Don't feel bad Monique - you are not alone.
                        Speaking of manure on gardens I would like to know: Is it best to till in the old manure in the fall or let it rest upon the garden?? I have no one to ask this question to since my parents are gone and all of my older relatives too. I am the "old relative" now
                        I have so much to be thankful for - just can't thank the Lord enough!! I am thankful for all of you my friends. We can learn so much from one another and it is wonderful to have someone to talk to each day! Have a great day Ladies, it will be a hot one. Yesterday it was 111 here and it felt like it.
