Yesterday was a great day. I am a veteran of the Air Force and retired Lt Col along with Hubby so we had the day off. After a leisurely breakfast and coffee, I migrated to my sewing room and made 2 easy quilt blocks! Then our grandson had his first birthday and we went to Chic-fil-A for a little party. He is so cute, blonde hair and blue eyes! Looks just like his daddy when he was that age. I briefly went into a sewing store and quilt shop which is next to Chic-fil-a. Never been in there but what a beautiful store and I'll have to go back!
After that, we drove down to the Mall where I marched in the local Veterans Day Parade. Had my picture in the paper this morning giving out flags! I guess I can count a 1 mile walk for exercise yesterday! Since I live in a community with 2 large military bases, a reserve base, an army unit and many other things, the military gets top billing around here!
Afterward I was pooped so I took little nap while hubby went to the YMCA. Afterward, we went to Subway for our dinner as kthey were giving away free 6" sandwiches to veterans! I got a BMT loaded with fresh veggies and it made a nice healthy dinner. No mayo, just oil and vinegar. It was nice to walk out not paying a dime. There were many other restaurants in town offering free dinners to veterans.
After dinner, hubby went off to sing with the barbershoppers and I went to my quilting group. It was a lot of fun seeing all the projects that others have made. There are some really talented people in there. The first weekend of March, there is a big quilting expo at our local conference center and I may sign up for a day long class to make a beautiful log cabin quilt. This hobby has taken off for me. And I'm so happy as I used to love to sew and it is coming back. HOwever, I can't let it get in the way of doing my work. Have to watch that.
Opened the paper this morning and one of my very good clients for many years passed away. And another friends young wife whom we both love, was operated on for cancer this week and it doesn't look good. There is so much of this going on it seems. So sad.
Take care and have a great day! Not doing too badly on WW considering I've not had a home cooked meal since I started and that includes this evening. Oh, well, just keep at it.
