I am off to the sewing room I have two quilts to get quilted by Thursday.

This is my latest quilt.



This is my newest toy. It is Rigid Heddle Loom. I am learning to weave. I heard weaving uses up a lot of yarn and I have more then I need.





This is the yarn I spun and am using to weave with.



Have a good day.

Ouch, that sounds terrible. Mom had that, but just on her stomach area. It took a long time for me to get her to the doctor on that. I hope your husband gets better soon.

I helped the lady at the assisted living with learning crochet today. She is learning disabled and has trouble moving her fingers right, so it is a little harder tan I thought, but she was finally remembering how to do the chain. We didn't get any farther than that. Don't know if she wants to continue doing it. She is going to check out YouTube videos. Neither her niece or I could get the slip knot through to her.

We have had a bit cooler today, but thankfully not as low as you. It's cold in my house though, so I keep having to wrap the electric throw around me. I turned the heater up, too, which will jack up my utility bill. That I don't like. I'm trying so hard to save and I am trying to figure out how to save enough to change to a lower priced insurance, but it is a 6 month plan and I currently have a 3 month plan.

Today the sun is out and 43 degrees. Took DH to ER and found out he has shingles. He has not been feeling all that wee for the last 2 weeks. Now he has a rash on arm, back and chest. DR gave him proscription for med for it. I am feeling much better and finally can get to go to church tomorrow.
Made up a big batch of taco meat so we can have taco's the next few days and also was able to freeze some for another time.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Eye doctors seem to take the longest to get through, I think. I had an appointment that was supposed to be the first after lunch one time and we were still waiting at 3:45 to get through. My friend had to call her brother in law to go pick up the girls from school that she gets every day.

My soup turned out good. That is the one kind of chicken soup I never follow a recipe and I haven't made it in so long I didn't know really what I was doing. Just started throwing stuff in. I have a couple quart storage containers full of it. My gut didn't like something the first day I had it, but apparently it wasn't the soup cause it has been fine since then.

Ida, I'm glad your appointment went well.

Hope everyone is doing well.

cold?
Julie - Organization is a lot of work, but it is so nice when you finish!

We are starting our day in the 40 but we are supposed to drop and be in the teens by the weekend. I hope any snow waits til late. I have to take my cello in for a look over and to put new strings on, this afternoon.

I got most of my sewing room cleaned and out back together. I need to put a few books back on a book shelf.

Julie - Sounds like you are really getting organized.
Ida - Freezing in 2 cups amounts is smart, you don't have too much to eat at a time.
Kay - Hope you and your mom's trip to the eye doctor was uneventful.
Darlene - I have read that onions helped, but I am very allergic so have never tried them.
Hope it works.

Our weather has turned back warm (the upper 70s) and damp. Did some knitting today, mostly ripping out. Hope everyone has a good evening.

I make chicken soup all the time. I add what ever veggies I have to it. I make a large batch as I have a big freezer and I freeze it in 2 cups amount that way I have it when ever I want it.

People think it is hard to make soup but it is real easy.

Happy Wednesday!

I'm taking my 93 year old mom to the eye doctor today. She goes every six weeks for shots for macular degenration. Getting her there, waiting hours for the doctor, and then getting her back home again usually takes at least five hours. I'm completely drained by the time it's all done. The good news is that once it's all over, we have six weeks before we have to do it again!

I read something on onions taking bacteria and virus out of the air, so I am trying one for getting rid of my cold. Also making some chicken soup. I've got onions, thyme and oregano for seasoning now and will add pepper and garlic. I sure hope it turns out. I've also got potatoes and carrots and will add tomatoes. Don't have a recipe I am using.

I got a few things for the crochet teaching I will be doing. That will start Saturday morning. I just hope I can do a good job at it. If the lady starts remembering too fast I won't be able to keep up with it.

Hope you are all feeling better.

Hope everyone has good results with their appointments.

I was planning on going to knitting club tonight and trying to figure out what to do there, but I'm afraid I might pass my cold around even though I think it is past that point, so will stay in or just go to the Dumb Friends and see if they want the dental chews I got for my cat. He won't touch them and has decided he doesn't like his treats anymore, so I need to find him some new ones. Or I might wait until tomorrow.

We started our day at -2, but it is sunny and bright.

We bought a weaving loom yesterday. Learning to weave is one of my goals for this year. We bought a small basic loom. We will pick it up on 14 JAN at spinning guild meeting. Susan will give a s lesson on setting it up and get us started weaving. I am really looking forward to getting it.

Have a great day.

Ida, I am sorry you are having problems since your surgery.
I hope all you guys stay warm.

We had mid-50s again and I was able to get Orzo and Cassie out to get their nails trimmed. The first groomer was allergic to cats, so he did Cassie, who was very polite and dainty for him. Then I took Orzo to the other store near me and he got his nails done. I don't think he is too happy with me because he couldn't climb to get up in the chair, but had to jump. At least I won't have more holes in me for a couple weeks.

started having trouble with the stint where I kept urinating every time I sat down and when I stood up. I call the DR and she had me get in a warm tub of water to rest and then had me take the stint out. It helped a lot, but she said the pain would get worse which it did. I ended up sleeping all afternoon. I did not get my 30 walk in, but it helped to take a lot of the pain away. She said I will get waves of pain like this till I heal up in about 3 to 4 weeks.

Thanks for all the prayers everyone.

We have been sunny and bright but it is only 8 out. I have been sewing and doing laundry today. DH put the self on my new cutting table. It will be nice to store things under my table and out of the way.

Have a good day.

Seeing weather reports seems really strange, with cold to the north and south and the middle of the country mild. Of course, that is probably more west central, because my cousin wrote that the temperature in Missouri was 11 degrees. The problem here is no moisture, though. The ski areas are at half the snow from what they are supposed to have.

I met my teacher for lunch yesterday (well, we both ate breakfast). I have half of mine in the fridge. Got a lot of verses to go through. It's nice to get info from her rather than people who say "its evil telling you that. Just ignore them." I don't know how to ignore them, so my teacher told me several verses to look up and read that tell me what I want to know. Have to get at that soon.

Just wanted to check in on Spark. Have a good day everyone.

Laurel, I was surprised at the weather reports this afternoon. It was about 10 degrees higher in Denver than in Houston. It was also warmer than northern Florida and Atlanta, GA. Of course, we are in an area that needs snow and haven't been getting it.

Had to go after honey today since I am having to drink so much tea. I also got a lemon that is the biggest I have ever seen. I was having trouble finding lemons there. Only the color and shape looked like lemons.

Going to meet with my Bible study teacher tomorrow. I just need help.

Happy New Year everyone.

I just stayed home and watched TV last night. They didn't show any of the celebrations on the channels I was watching. Today I watched the Rose Parade, then fell asleep again. Just trying to get over this cold.

It was -12 this morning when DH did chores.

We met friends for an early dinner and then we were home by 7:00. I didn't make it until midnight. After watching the Rose Parade this am I went to my sewing room to sew.

Happy New Year!!

We had cold today, at least for me. I had to go out for a few things and got a couple things for New Years. Of course, too full to eat them on New Years Eve. I needed tissues and Vicks for my stuffy nose and something to cover my credit card. Just keep trying to get ahead and get farther and farther behind. Hopefully the lady still wants me to teach her aunt crochet. Then if I can do that well enough, maybe I can teach others.

Hope all have a Happy New Years. Don't think I will make it until the ball drops, but maybe. No partying, though.

We are in the upper sixties although the temps are supposed to dip into the upper fifties in a few days. We are taking down the Christmas stuff this weekend, never as much fun as putting it up.

I guess we had the upper--50s today, too, but it didn't feel like it. I went after some Coricidin and I was cold. There must be a lot of people needing it because I had to go to 2 stores to get it. The second store had 2 for cold and 1 for flu.

Yesterday Cassie and I went to get Fancy feed and groom her a little. It was really nice then. Tomorrow I am not sure I want to go out at all, but I did click on the coupons for a couple of items at the grocery that are only good tomorrow. I'll have to dress warmer if I go get those because it is supposed to be in the 20s. I would hate to be in some of the climates I have read about. At least the really cold (warmer than some of those places) is only around a couple of days and it starts warming up again.

We got about an inch of snow. Just enough to make roads a little slippery, especially when you need tires on our car.

I went to my group work out this morning but I was the only on there. I worked out for an hour. I am going to start laundry and do some sewing after lunch.

Have a good day.

I hope everyone had a Merry Christmas.

I went to friends' each of the last two days. Took presents next door and was invited to breakfast there. Then in the afternoon Sunday I was at one friend's for lunch/dinner. I did pretty good not eating too much there. We opened presents, then everyone headed to church. I missed going to a service because they didn't have the services at the times I thought they would. One was getting out and I guess the other one was later and by that time I had fallen asleep.

Yesterday was at another friend's where we had lunch/dinner, movies and crafts. I made a mess of my first one, so they gave me the extra jar and I got to make another one. Both days were really enjoyable. Without those friends I would still be spending all my holidays alone.

I did make it to Joann's yesterday. On the way to Watertown there was home craft sale at the Rocky Ridge Alpaca Farm so we stopped. I bought some alpaca/wool roving to spin. I also got a couple yards of fabric at Joann's. We used my birthday coupon for dinner. My birthday is next Weds.

We are getting a light snow. May be we will have a slightly white Christmas tomorrow.

Merry Christmas.

Our Bible study group met at Paneras today for a little get-together. It was nice to see everyone. I haven't been there for a few weeks because of sleeping too late and one of the ladies I hadn't seen for some time before then because she was having medical problems. Today all were there except one person who can very seldom get there due to her job.

Hope you are all having a good week.
