    Default Saturday Morning Hellos! :)

    Good Morning, Everyone ~ It's snowing! They predicted <1". Not! Updated weather has us under a winter storm advisory, & some areas winter storm warning & possible blizzard conditions out on the eastern Plains. It started snowing some time during the night. The ground & streets are covered & it's snowing steadily. Maybe 3-6" expected. I really don't want to go out in it, but we're having the dinner today at DS's apt. at noon. I'm taking part of the meal & he's fixing the rest. DGD & husb. are in town. They came by yest. eve. to see DH before he went to bed at 6 p.m.

    Yest. was a morning of errands. Got an e-m that our LQS was having a pre-inventory sale, 50% off of many bolts. Well, who can pass up a deal like that, right?! I found several fabrics I liked, so more fabric goes in my stash. Went to 3 groc. stores & the bank. In the afternoon I baked the Blueberry Crisp for today's dessert. This a.m. I'll be making the meatballs. I'll put them in the crock pot with the sweet & sour pineapple sauce.

    I hope our snow angel from church comes by to shovel before I have to go out.

    Good morning. Another nice day here before the rain arrives. Looks like that winter storm will also be affecting some of my relatives in S. Dakota too.
    Not a lot on my agenda for today. I have my nail appt in a bit. I want to start cutting strips for my new quilt.
    Joy— safe travels to your son’s house.

    Have a good day.
    Beth

    oH yes, safe travels to all who will be traveling. We are headed to our family gettogether today at DD. Only 110 miles but the weather is perfect. We have had 5 glorious spring days for December with rain coming tonight. Our skys have been carolina blue and the soil is smelling like spring. I know its an illusion but I'm swept up in it. I even saw a blooming dandilion yesterday.

    Good Morning All,

    It's dreary this morning, still sprinkling a little bit. A bird apparently got hung up under the solar panels. I thought the neighbor might be getting his truck out of the back yard, but the noise was over head. It decided to leave once I stepped out on the porch.

    Yesterday, I worked on the tree napkins. All stitched up, now I need to flip them. I worked with Carlie Wolf on getting Secret Santa 2020 set up for the new year and looked at the Christmas decorations wishing I had the boxes. lol, oh well! That didn't get touched. By the end of the day, I felt like Mike had shared his cold with me! Dag gum! I was in bed before 8:30 and sound asleep when Jim called to tell me about Nana and Nandy's reaction to their quilt. It didn't take long to go back to sleep.

    Kiddos will be here later, as Morgan and Jim are going out to lunch for their anniversary/ JIm's birthday (which was in November). Their schedule is too crowded! They'll hit the 9 year mark tomorrow and lots of love around here to support them.

    Not sure if I'll touch the Christmas stuff today or not. Mike's off, but it's the last he'll have off for 7 days. I hope they get a replacement for Shane quickly. He moved on to Allstate Insurance Co. no clue what he's doing there. I teased Mike, saying he's the copy boy. He told me I was bad.

    I like my new pocketbook, the main pocket will hold my folded up cane and still zip. I told Mike where everything was, in case he needed to get to my ID or something. I actually think it would be pretty easy to make in fabric, instead of leather. Maybe, if I get really bored this summer. ha ha

    I'd best get started around here. Joy, be safe on the roads and have a wonderful time with your family. Beth, I'm about ready to start a new quilt, too. I need to talk to Morgan first, to see if the colors I have will go with her Mom's bedroom.

    For all who follow, Have a great day!

    I know most of you all already have a lot on your plate, but think about joining the Secret Santa 2020. I know I've enjoyed it so much for the last two years.

    Terry, have a great time! I have dandelions all year long. Every time, Esther or Zeke come over, they bring me some to go in my grandma's bud vase. I don't think she ever had to use it for dandelions!

    Good morning everyone. No report on weather here, since I haven't gotten out of bed to see. But I did sleep in and it was heavenly! I have one package to take to the post office and then I think I will come home and sew. That's about all I have to report today. Love your life and enjoy as best you can.

    Good morning,
    The sun is shining and this will likely be last day before we get a nasty storm, the one hitting US.

    Nothing ever goes as planned. Yesterday I quilted the VQC top and attached the binding. Then checked my phone. The sitter I have for mom was texting me saying mom wasn't right, confused, slurred speech, blurred vision and she got the nurse to check BP which was normal. Suspect she has been having TIAs. I think she has been having them over past few months, but mom's wish is 'no intervention'. When I went I stayed with her, night nurse & I observed her as she tried to eat dinner. Slow and difficult seeing, missing mouth, and trouble chewing. She did like the soft dessert and 2 chocolates. She kept talking about dreams she is having, mostly with my dad and places we have lived. She reminded me that her mom and all her siblings had strokes and she does not want to be in paralyzed state. Her speech is slurred. They will keep an eye on her. I texted my kids, and DD may bring the kiddos to visit later. Mom has asked to see them. Please send your prayers that she not suffer. I handsewed half the binding last night and may bring to keep busy when I go see mom.

    DH did not sleep well either. He kept thinking about my mom 96, his dad 95 who is also not doing well in KS and his impending surgeries. I think I will need be needing prayers for strength in 2020.

    Joy and others travelling today, please be careful. I hope your snow angel comes by to clear your driveway.
    Dandelions - reminds me when I was a kid, and they weren't sprayed then. Us kids would collect them from schoolyard across street and my dad would make dandelion wine.

    Have an enjoyable 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.

    Hi Everyone....We are expecting some winter weather later today. Jeff's Mom is in town from Indiana visiting Jeff's brother in Jefferson City and Jeff is en route to visit with her for a few hours. I'm home with the Girls. JC is about a two hour drive from here. I may take down a few of the Christmas decorations today.

    I have borders cut (for the second time) for my Tea Cup quilt. The first set of borders were too busy for the center. If I get some time today I will do a little sewing. I pieced the backing already and have the binding cut. This may be my first machine sewn binding (hemming).

    I hope everyone has a good weekend. Stay safe.....Hugs

    Sunny and mild over here in Cheshire, England. I'm off to see the lights at Dunham Massey this evening with my daughter and grandson.

    JCY I'd love some snow - can you send some over here please?

    Good morning all,

    Well, DD left at 80 this morning to meet her roommate in Grand Forks, ND to photograph the wedding they were hired for. Like so many of you, we're in a storm warning for 8-16 inches of snow and winds of 30 - 50 mph. The girls will leave for home (Minneapolis) right after they take pictures of the first dance at the reception. I'm pretty nervous about their drive home. It's normally about a 5 hour drive, but with the weather, who know? DH and I reminded her several times that if it gets too bad get off the road and find a place to stay. I told her to let me know when they leave Grand Forks, and also, to let me know their progress.

    I received a phone call on Thursday from #2 son who lives in NC. Their baby girl is due on the 21st of Jan. They had an ultrasound Thursday morning, and the doctors are concerned that the baby's stomach isn't developing like it should. If there's no improvement by this Monday when she'll have another ultrasound, they will induce her on Tuesday. DS and DIL are new to the base where he's stationed, and don't really know anyone with whom they can leave their 3yo son. I'll be flying out on Monday to help them. I'm hoping the weather will have improved by the time my plane leaves Monday morning. I would have left this weekend if it wasn't for this darn storm. Since the doctors aren't sure as to the problem with the baby, I'll be staying with DS and DIL for a month. I'll adjust my return date if need be. We would appreciate prayers for little Runa and the family.

    It sounds like the storm is or will be affecting many of you, so please be careful if traveling.
    Suzanne, I'm sorry to hear about the latest health problems your mom is having. Prayers that she doesn't suffer.
    Joy, have a wonderful time with your GD and family.

    Jeanne
