On the plus side, he is at the local hospital which makes it easier for me to also do what needs to be done at home. The other big already for this year was my Uncle’s funeral on Saturday.

    On Sunday, I worked on creating a pattern for the boys who want a coin pouches to carry. And I was able to get two sewing projects ready to sew for our local group’s sew day on Wednesday. But it looks like sewing with the ladies may not happen on Wednesday as they are looking at keeping dh another night.

    Have a wonderful day everyone
    I hope he turns the corner and they can get a handle on what's wrong and can fix it quickly.

    Well, we have the "S" word falling right now. We are only supposed to get 1-3 inches but it looks like there is already 1-2 inches on the ground. It is so pretty --- big, fluffy flakes --- but I worry about my son, daughter and son-in-law driving home from work in it. My son has to go over a mountain, with several big curves, to get home. I will be glad when I hear that everyone has made it home.

    I was at my quilt guilds retreat from Thursday to Sunday of last week. It really started on Wed, the 1st, but I didn't go until Thurs because of the holiday. It was a lot of fun except a couple of the people I usually sit with were not there so it made it a little strange. I was able to finish piecing one quilt top and started working on an advent calendar. First one of those I have made.

    Friday morning at the retreat my phone rang at 7:15 in the a.m. I didn't open it because I didn't recognize the number. They left a voice mail --- turns out it was Lowe's telling me they were finally delivering my new fridge between 9 and 11 that morning. I jumped out of bed, threw on some clothes, ran downstairs, picked up my purse and coat and drove home. I first had to stop at my nieces to pick up a cooler to put the things from the loaner fridge/freezer into until the new one came. I made it home by about 8:40 and got the fridge cleaned out and waited for the delivery. They came about 10:30.

    Problem: The builders plumber had put in a 3/8" connection in the wall, but the water hose they had left was 1/4" on both ends (standard for most fridges). They set up the fridge and then I had to get in touch with the head contractor. He came by, took the hose and went to speak with his plumber. They sent someone out to get the required part and came by and installed it. After getting everything back into the fridge/freezer and taking a shower, I headed back to the retreat --- time of arrival about 4:45. It had taken me all day. I then had to leave early on Sunday because my one granddaughter was having her first ski lesson for this season and I had promised her I would go and watch. Her older sister wasn't able to go (she snowboards) because on New Years Day, she fell after going over a jump and has a mild concussion.

    Guess that is all for now. Still snowing --- I think it is over 2 inches now. Hope everyone has a great day --- at least what is left of it.

    Back again ~ I forgot to mention this a.m. that my BLOCK magazine came yest. I sat right down & read through it! It's always a delight.

    Today I read through the latest issue of The Country Register -- ours is the CO/NM edition. One of the quotes was this:

    "In the Quilt of Life, Friends are the Stitches that Hold it Together." I think this Forum speaks to that. Many of us quilters will never meet in person, but we can be friends in cyber space & help one another.

    Before I can begin FMQ on this latest quilt, I have to clean my LA & change the needle. Have a good rest of your day.

    Good evening all,
    What a long day at the hospital with step son. He was run thru triage and admitted fairly quickly. Fever and high BP, suspected flu. They gave him Advil. Waited for X-rays and blood work. Then he got IV fluids for dehydration, while waiting for results. Then he saw doctor, I'm not in the room so he can't remember what she said he had. Then more IV Gravol for nausea. After all that, he remembers she said it was a virus and he had no Rx. That's what she said, so no meds. When the nurse came to remove IV needle, slipped and said something about mono. I said what? Oh, he said he would send in doctor. SS is challenged but can make legal decisions, so I try not to overstep, but if it comes to health, he needs to have someone there as he cant process. Anyway, he has mono. I freaked, as he has probably had this awhile. I dropped him off and went to pick up Advil & Gravol, and groceries. When I got home, I changed and we went out for pasta. The only food besides a small piece of banana bread and coffee all day.

    I'm resting and will be early to bed. Driving DH to same hospital for cataract surgery.

    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
    Hope your SS gets better soon Suzanne, hope the surgery goes well for DH.
    Sorry to hear your hubby in pain in hospital, simply quilting hope can resolve soon.

    Been a under quilt day here, my energy just went and thought staying put was the best way to hopefully have it back tomorrow.
    Its very windy here, we can hear the swirling and howling down chimney, fires out as it keeps trying to be a blacksmiths forge.
    saw the weather for Friday, might be floating sparkles dropping from the sky. did anyone see Raymonds Briggs 'snowman' this last December, it was the first year managed not to have wet eyes, then the snowman and snow dog came on, oh dear, am amazed by all the hand drawing to create this, what dedication.
    have a great evening
    T

    Suzanne ~ I had mono when I was in nursing school. Sooooo tired! I had to drop out of school. I was in a 3 yr. hospital school & had to return home. I was on bedrest for a month. I was allowed up only to use the bathroom & eat my meals. I later returned to a different nursing school & took the 2 yr. assoc. degree program. Those were quite new back in the 1960's.

    I hope your SS feels better soon. What a long day you had.
