    Default Monday Morning Hellos! :)

    Good Morning, Everyone ~ I thought sure Monique would have started us off already this morning. Anyway, here goes. We're expecting record setting temps. today. Probably close to 100. We've had many "air quality alerts" lately for ozone. The skies are a bit hazy on those days.

    I did take it easy yest. After church yest.. a.m., I made a stop at the $ store, Safeway for the sale ice cream, & went through the drive-through at Taco Bell for a couple tacos. I didn't feel like fixing lunch. In the afternoon I read -- finished my latest book. I was re-reading one of Lori Benton's books -- pre-revolutionary war days on the Ohio frontier -- a widowed mother in search of her son stolen by the Indians. I did more browsing for a new laptop. Still haven't found the right deal.

    Today will be the usual Mon. laundry & more house cleaning.

    Good morning,
    It was one of those "nuit blanche" again. Woke up around 3, tossed and turned, as I was falling asleep, there was a burst of heavy rain, finally fell asleep around 5. Hate those nights. Probably too much wine, ate too late, too many crazy dreams, who knows!

    We've got our east coast trip stops figured out. I just need to book hotel for the later part. I'm looking forward to it. It will be fun to spend time with friends by the water. One plan for sure, eat lobster, visit sights and relax. Not much planned today. It's been hot & humid and rainy. Good day to stay indoor and sew.

    Enjoy your day.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Good morning everyone. I was ready to head here this morning but my neighbour was over early. I had a fridge that she is taking for her daughter. Well we got that sucker out and onto the trailer. WE ARE WOMAN!!!!! Then she needed help loading a mattress as well. Got that done.

    WELL, yesterday I was working on a tablet cover, the first one didn't turn out so great. I made this one bigger and got it together fairly well until it came time to attach the binding ends together. Well do you think I could figure that one out. I ripped it out 6 times and then took a break. Looked online and found an 'easy' way. Well I screwed that one up too. So after the 9th try I finally got it done. Cheesh, my brain was just not working properly yesterday. I have done bindings so many times but for some reason it wasn't working yesterday.

    My youngest son is traveling today on his first trip to the west coast. It should be quite an experience for him. My oldest will be here on Wednesday as Thursday morning he and his Dad have a golf date and then they are headed up the camp for a couple of days. OH geewhiz, what shall I do for 4 days to myself?

    So on that note have a wonderful day everyone. It promises to be hot and muggy all week.
    Blessed are the children of the piecemakers for they shall inherit the quilts!

    Good Morning All,

    Pepper is standing watch at the sliding glass doors this morning. She's determined to get the squirrels. Mike is going to do laundry today. I haven't made up my mind. I do know that Pepper's getting up and down during the night is breaking my sleep cycle. We'll have to make sure she's pretty active before bed tonight.

    Jim and Morgan made it to their destination. lol, I didn't know it until this morning. I'd turned off the volume on my cell phone on Wednesday night. Whoops! No wonder it hasn't 'rung'. I've missed a couple of calls. I'll return them later today.

    Have a great day!
    Katrina

    Good morning. Another hot and humid day here too. I plan on doing some errands this morning and then staying indoors. I am continuing to make headway on my quilting. It gets a little boring,so I sew a few lines and then I go do something else.

    My trainer is away this week, so I don’t have to rush off to the gym. I was hoping to take some walks outside. I think I will skip that idea due to the heat.

    Have a good day and stay cool.

    I am back from a wonderful 4 day retreat, heavenly. Lots of good friends, good food, sewing and laughter. I actually got a few things done, too.
    Today, after the gym [our trainer is not on vacation] I need to unpack everything and lay out a queen top that will be on point. It is the video pattern Donna Jordan did a couple of weeks ago called something like beads. I am excited to see it unfold.
    Our cat got another chipmunk last night, at least this one was outside but it was a bit of a circus disposing of the remains before the dog got it.

    Good Morning Everyone =)
    I didn't sleep much last night either. We had quite the lightning show for a couple of hours. No rain, not even a breeze to move a leaf, no thunder either. The night wasn't for sleeping so I made tea and watch the dark clouds light up a lot. We lost the phone and internet for the night. I spent most of yesterday baking a lot of gluten free cookies. Amazing cookies, some recipe books are worth getting. It's a scorcher outside already, so it sounds like a quilting day to me , lol. The sewing room is well stocked so my only challenge is to make a choice from the many possibilities of projects. Life is good. Always thankful for the good days, they give me strength to get through the not so good ones. Hope every one's week is off to a great start.

    good Monday morning,

    its sunshine and showers here today, its breezy,
    the word 'breezy' takes me back some years to a tent vacation, in those days our only technology was a battery powered wireless, a gas lantern and gas powered hob, the wireless / radio was used for finding out the next days weather.
    They said it would be breezy on the wireless, it was to rain and the tent a cabin style closest to wind was protected by car, somehow slept, but woke up to the far end of tent closest to wind pressing on sleeping quarters, the pegs had come out of ground with all flapping, a quick re peg and all was well. breezy ha ha
    the next day was a beautiful calm day, we spent the day relaxing on the beach, decided to go back to tent to cook tea, within that cooking time when looked out expecting to see the glistening waters of the calm sea, we could not see anything, it was a pea soup thick fog!
    we had a heavy rain the next day, once it brightened, folk started walking about, they were near to tent when a sudden gust happened, the water on the tent took that moment to leave the fabric drenching the passers by, at there screams we rushed out (before leaving for vacation we had used a water proof solution on tent fabric, the water stood on fabric like it does on a highly polished car.) thankfully everybody laughed about it.
    the weather conditions on that camping site were memorable. Was a nice camping site that everyone spoke to each other everyone seemed happy and relaxed

    yesterday it rained, so did the computer restart, it took the computer 6 hours for the computer to restart, finishing the update install, then reset all setting again, am pleased its now done.
    yesterday we made a butternut stew, gf baked some Almond macaroons that stuck to the sheet, and a chocolate sultana cake, that turned out wonderful.

    have a great day in what ever you do
    T

    Morning all.
    Today is supposed to be high temps so I 'll be staying in. Have some chores to keep me busy but after they' re done hope to get a bit of sewing done. I am pretty stoked that I 've been keeping on my schedule sewing for the craft fair, so far I' ve made 18 wreaths so they are done. Now to decide on what else to make.

    Wishing everyone a good day, and hope you stay cool with these temps.
    Nobody is going to stand up at your funeral and say she had a really expensive sofa and great shoes Life is not about stuff.

    Morning! It was little sleep last night. We are dealing with a nasty stomach bug around here. DD started off not feeling good on Saturday evening so her and I stayed home from church yesterday. Then in the night last night it was oldest DS, then DH. This morning little one has started (thankfully, a very messy diaper that required a bath as it went out the diaper and up the back etc has been it for him as being so little getting the whole throwing up in a trashcan is not there yet). And as he was getting cleaned up, middle DS started. So everyone is just laying around - beds, floor, couch.

    Currently, little one is sitting on a chair watching one of his favorite shows - Hee Haw. For me, it brings back lots of good memories with grandparents. My plans for the day is taking care of everyone, working on laundry, and thinking about in just six short weeks, I will be at the Fall Forum Retreat with some great ladies.

    Have a wonderful day everyone
