    Good Morning Folksies

    Ever wake up and wonder what is so good about it? Yeah, and like, what is up with having the news on? I thought I was having a bad dream or something. It took me a while to get in here this morning. Poor hubs is a news hound. I am not. It isn't that I bury my head in the sand. No. Not at all. Let me tell you one of the secrets of my happiness

    come 'er . . . Closer . . . I don't share this often or with many, but today is an exception . . .

    I realized a long time ago that I have free will. That means choices. Oy. I can here you now; there she goes again with happiness is a choice thing. Most certainly it is. But how are you able to make that choice? I surround myself with good things for my ears to hear and eyes to see. I choose to not listen to the news 24/7. I actually have for the most part figured out when they going to have the weather on and will turn the channel just for that. I do NOT like doom and gloom first thing in the morning. Every news channel carries the local, national and international gloom. While I may not be able to change the whole world with my Pollyanna outlook and smile, I don't have to let the whole world change ME. I am a firm believer in being careful and aware of what I hear. Bad news doesn't have to be heard or read more than once. Junk comes in bunches. Wad it up and throw it away. Things get better. Joy gets restored. And for those who would like to know this, I write on the bottom of my shoes. I really do. I write, Satan you are defeated. I like walking over evil.

    I am praying for this nation, for those involved in the marathon, for those in authority and those who need the strength to make it through this day. My cyber arms are around each one here who has deep seated fear over this terror in Boston - turn the tv off, turn your mind off and go outside and walk around, go to your sewing machine and make something for someone else.

    Okay, besides the afternoon, my day yesterday was a good one. Today is going to be a different kinda day. It is not yet 6 a.m. and my plans for the day have already been changed. Ain't it a good thing I am woman and can roll with it?

    Blessings to all. Hugs, prayers and I'm handing out smiles for you if you need one. Here's your SMILE.

    Sewing mends the soul.

    Good morning Blondie. You and I are so alike, girlfriend. Well by now you all know it is my birthday. Thank you for the birthday wishes that have already come and for those to come. I am blessed with such wonderful people in my life. Today will just be another day I think. I won't come home for lunch today because this afternoon I have an appointment with the ENT specialist for a follow-up to my surgery I had 1 1/2 years ago. Yup. Now I can tell him it wasn't successful. I also have a sinus headache, throat and ears are itchy. It is a good time to see him today.

    I did not get any quilting done yesterday because I received the traveling book and started reading it. It is a great read for sure. I should be done by the end of the week.

    Hubby is getting so excited for his trip. He is leaving a week today for Ocean City, Maryland for a golf trip. He will be gone for a week. I sure wish I did not have to work. I could quilt all day instead.

    My brother told me that there is a quilt show on the 27th and 28th in Arnprior, Ontario for those who live close to me. I will probably go on the Saturday after work. I am supposed to meet with friends for a seafood supper that night and I have a bridal shower to attend on the Sunday.

    Have a wonderful day friends. We have rain today that will wash away the snow.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good Morning all The sky is gray but the sun is struggling to get seen, t storms for this afternoon. Blondie you niled it with the Pollyanna attitude. I have been accused of that more often then not. My hubby is mr doomsday. With him out of work for a year he watches the news 24/7 and mumbles about everything bad . he is my half empty cup person where as I am the half full cup. well for some reason it works. another day at the store was very slow but monday typically is and is full of returns. today should be better. Everyine smile like Blondie says it makes your day brighter. enjoy

    Good morning...up early again to get the guys off to the woods for Turkey hunting. They didn't have any luck yesterday. We have to laugh at our friend ET from Texas. He is not use to walking up and down hills and is quickly worn out! LOL. I think we are going to go to Springfield today after they get back from hunting. The guys need to get some black powder supplies. And we want to go out to eat at the amazing Chinese restaurant there. Yum!

    I have a package ready to send to Marilyn for the Children's Hospital but our printer ran out of ink so I can't print my shipping label. We will get printer cartridges today if we go to Springfield and then I can get a label printed and get them on the way to her.

    I am looking forward to my 2 weeks of peace and quiet when DH and E.T. go to their black powder rendezvous in another week or so. Then I can get back to my sewing machine and get some UFOs completed and catch up on my Secret Santa swap. It is so hard to get anything done with the guys around.

    Hope everyone has a great day. Hugs and prayers to all in need.

    Good morning. Prayers for the families of those killed, injured, or affected in any way by the bombings in Boston. DH is sick with a cold, allergies, or something and when he's sick we're both miserable! He's not a good patient at all! He (and I) was up several times during the night. I suggested to him this morning to take it easy the next few days or he could end up with pneumonia. I'm pretty sure my advice went in one ear and out the other. Time will tell. I'm off to get ready for work.

    My hubs has the news on every morning...I was sitting there trying to wake up and I looked at him and said "have they had any local news on this morning"...I don't know what he said because I went back to sleep or something. I don't mind watching or listening to the news but when it begins to repeat...I turn it off. I know they have to do that for the people that are watching at different times. I have better things to do than listen to repeat news all day - like watch repeat sitcoms *lol*

    My thoughts and prayers are with everyone that has been affected by the tragic events at the marathon yesterday.

    I should have the top of my maple leaf quilt finished tonight (if I get no interuptions) except for the borders...so hopefully before the week-end I will have the top all finished up. I ordered some samples of backing fabric so I can do some matching - they are on their way to me. I think when I get the top finished I'm going to take a break and get a few other projects done before the quilting starts on that, because the quilting is going to take a while to do.

    Have a wonderful day! Prayers and hugs

    Good morning everyone. I am up, trying to drink my coffee and motivate myself to get ready for work. Going to work in Springfield today, try to figure out some plans for the Lebanon location, it's a thorn in my side, for every step of progress there I take 2 steps back...it's frustrating...

    I am working on putting a single layer binding on a miniature quilt...the instructions say to use a blind stitch so the stitches don't show thru to the front.....I can't seem to understand the concept or how to do it....

    Everyone have a great day!!

    Good morning, Blondie and my other quilting friends. I want to start out the day with a smile and good thoughts, too. You are absolutely right....we don't always have choices about what happens, but we do have choices on how we react to what life gives us. I need to remind myself of that often.

    Am hoping to get my sewing machine to the shop today for cleaning and fixing. Been having troubles with the tension and have tried all the at-home fixes. Hope he doesn't have to have it too long!

    Have a great day everyone. I hope to get caught up on the forum before I start my day.

    Good Morning All and Happy Birthday Monique!
    My Autumn is getting worse and I think I'm going to have to make a hard decision this Friday if not before. My heart is breaking I've decided that I'm not getting another golden. I've lost 5 in 13 years and I just can't do it anymore. It's too hard.
    I've been praying for those that are impacted by bombs and Blondie I think I need to take your advice. I let the news suck me in yesterday and that is all I could think about between that and Autumn my day was pretty bad. I felt aweful all day. So I think I'm going to say goodbye to the news too.
    It's Tuesday and I still don't have my quilt quilted for my friend. I need to get that done this week as I have a stack of material waiting on me. My nieces quilt, two new great niece/nephews on the way and my neighbor is having another baby boy and they all need receiving blankets, quilts and burp cloths. I still have my moms quilt (trying to decide on a pattern) to get to and my own.
    Have a blessed week everyone!
    Thank you,

    Ginny K
