    Default Tuesday Morning Greetings! :)

    Good Morning, Everyone ~ It doesn't seem the same without Monique getting us started. I hope she & Les are having a wonderful time.

    Another HOT one yest. It was 104...again! Both Sun. & Mon. temps. broke the all time high record for Sept. There still is a 90 in the forecast, but generally trending into the 80's now.

    I went to 2 furniture stores yest. I found a recliner I really liked...but the price was almost $900. Too much. I found another one for just under $300. A possibility. We also have the problem of how to get rid of the old recliner; it's too old to donate to a charity. DH & I cannot haul it out to the curb & put a free sign on it. We may call one of those we haul junk places to see what that would cost.

    After shopping, I stopped by DS's apt.; he's making progress with getting settled in. I took him out to lunch for his birthday (which is today); we went to one of our local Mexican restaurants. A big meal; I brought home half of mine for later.

    Today I need to get the BRs ready for new mattresses being delivered tomorrow morning. We also are anticipating a power outage this a.m. when the power co. comes back to complete the repair on our street. I better eat my breakfast earlier than usual so I'll have power to cook.

    I feel bad for those on the east coast who are waiting to learn what Hurricane Dorian will do. It's such a slow mover. Keep us posted on how you're doing.

    Good morning Joy and others who join us for daily catch-ups.

    Somehow I know if I wait a few minutes you'll have the thread going, and you are 2 hrs ahead of me. I just can do early, well this Saturday, we will be on the road hopefully by 7am. I'm guessing that Monique is on the island by now.

    Joy - glad you found a recliner. Would the delivery people take it away or move to curb? I know not all municipalities pick up furniture.

    It's sunny and cool, fall weather for sure. Yesterday I looked at the donated quilt tops. I sorted and prepped the ones that are ready to go. I also sewed the binding strips, pressed and rolled for the next person when the top is quilted. Others I had to trim the width or length as we get our batting and backing is 60" w x 75". We can go to 58" wide if someone quilts at home. If done by LA, max width is 50-54". There was also smaller quilt pieces which will be used for bags. I then sandwiched a VQC top and started quilting it.

    Today, I'm running errands, will try and visit mom. This aft, cleaning lady is here, so I might get to finish quilting a VQC top. My back has been giving me twinges, so I'll be careful not to move heavy items around the garage. DH's back has been giving him issues, so I've been doing more. Nothing else on the agenda, but that can change on a moment's notice.

    My heart goes out to those in Dorian's path. Waiting has to be very stressful, not knowing. I suppose that being ready and thinking safety is all one can do. Is this a dumb question for those near water -- does everyone have lifejackets? I think I would pull mine out.

    Have an enjoyable day. Stay cool, stay dry and be safe.

    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. I am loving our weather- sunny and 84. We had a nice Labor Day. My DH made brisket and ribs. 2 friends came over for dinner. They wanted to meet the new puppy too.

    We almost had to take the pup to the ER. She found some dried up espresso beans as may have eaten one. I called the animal poison control and they were so busy I was on hold forever. I finally found some info on the internet about coffee and dogs. We det. One bean was fine.

    I actually sewed some blocks yesterday. Little by little I am going to get this new quilt done. I was good and did not buy any fabric from online stores sales.

    Have a good day.

    Morning all.

    A sunny day here today after rain and a quick storm passed through yesterday evening. We had a tornado warning pop up on the TV around 4:30 yesterday afternoon. It touched down about 25 minutes east of us and wreaked some havok.

    Been sewing a bit each day and getting a couple of small things ready for quilting. Seems this cooler weather gets me energized to sew.

    Not much important on my to do list for today, so I'll see what the day has in store for me. Hoping Monique enjoys her vacation, wishing everyone a good day!

    Good morning all. It's a nice sunny morning here after a bit of an on again/off again rainy one yesterday. We had a fun visit with Vicky, Kenny, Max and Lily yesterday morning. Max, who is 9, was fascinated by my sewing and embroidery machines. He also spent time with grandpa in the gardens before the rain started. He was checking out how things had changed since the last time he was here. Lily liked being outside too but when she was inside, all she wanted to do was find Myrtle, our cat. But Myrtle is very good at hiding. Lol

    Well Tim, his 2 dogs, his ex gf Mandy and her 2 cats are on the road this morning getting out of Dorians way. He expects to be gone at least through the weekend. The storm surge and power outages will be the issue for them. Since where he works is also on an island, he won't need to be back there until they get things back up and running. The news out of the Bahamas is heartbreaking.

    Back to the sewing room for me. I need to set a reminder that I need to start picking Henry up after school today. Tessa is in daycare full-time now so I don't have her to hang out with. I miss her but caring for a baby is pretty tiring at my age.

    Have a good day all. Be safe all those dealing with Dorian.

    Good Morning All,

    It was a beautiful day here yesterday and probably will be another one for most of today from the looks of the weather maps. I feel for those in the Bahamas. It seems like Dorian is like me going into a room and just standing there trying to remember what I went for. Folks in south FL that are out of the cone of concern, are already making arrangements to donate their hurricane supplies to the people of the Bahamas as soon as it's safe to get it to them.

    I worked on a quilt for Morgan yesterday afternoon. This morning I really need to get motivated to clean up the kitchen. Mike wants to take care of his laundry today. I should go ahead and strip the bed and do my sheets.

    Morgan has left for ER duty. She'll get home Thursday night, maybe, it just depends. That will make for a nice pay check for her this month. Hopefully, it will break up the 6 day straight shift she was supposed to start at the end of this week.

    Well, time to get busy. That kitchen, the bathrooms, the bedrooms won't clean themselves and I'd like to get the blocks sewn together today.

    Have a great day! Prayers for those in need. Prayers that Dorian makes up his mind and heads out to sea, away from land!
    Katrina

    Good morning all,

    I've been absent from posting for a while, but always check in to see what everyone is doing. We spent the weekend at the cabin with DS #1 and his family. The weather was decent, and the kiddos got to have their last rides on the jet ski for the season. All the lake toys are put away except for the canoe and the pontoon. We'll drain pipes and shut the cabin up the first weekend of Oct. I'll still spend some time there this month, but with the GKs back in school their weekends are too busy to head to the lake.

    We're having an early fall it seems...temps are already in the 60's. It's the first day of school for MN kids. We have a law stating schools have to start after Labor Day. Usually the first couple of weeks of school are pretty warm. When I was teaching, my classroom was in the 100 yr. old part of the building. It was all brick and huge windows, and wow, did it heat up in the afternoons!! No air conditioning in most of our schools up north....only if it's a brand new building.

    I have a chiropractic appt. later this morning, and this afternoon I'll be watching my oldest GS play his first Jr. High football game. Seventh grade already. How did that happen??? I hope to get some sewing time squeezed in somewhere. I work tomorrow and Thursday this week. It's also my weekend coming up to work .

    I'm watching the hurricane news closely as DS #2 and family live on the east coast of NC. They just moved there in May from Okinawa where they had to deal with typhoons, and now it's hurricanes!

    Hello Tuesday!

    Thankful to make it to the back-side of this hurricane. Still raining and gusty here but we are OK. Prayers for others waiting and watching the path this one takes.

    Just a little stitching to pass the time.
