Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
WHAT A GREAT DAY yesterday .. and I am sooo sore !!! lol lol lol
I had helpers all day yesterday .. Uly and TD left Lolly with Hoots for Hoots to take care of her, because they knew that I was lonely and so they would help me throughout the day !!! What good little helpers .. :)
"where's the beef?" ... No Uly .. I only brought the oven out; I'm not cooking yet .. lol lol .. but TD was looking up to see how long !!! lol ..
I enjoyed myself upstairs all day long, taking a break for lunch time; and when my back started to hurt .. (from ironing my seams) .. and as of last night; I have my rows done, and I got all of the doubles "doubled" ..
Tonight I hope to iron those seams and attach the double's (and the final lone row) .. if not I have my evenings (with the exception of Tuesday night) to work on it .. Since hubby's not home, I just left my ironing board up in his bathroom .. / laundry room .. :)
Of course I had my help by the sewing machine too .. I gave TD and Uly my pack of scraps .. and well -- they decided to help me . .. (of course I kept MY stuff far away .. sometimes they can only take "good" just so long .. lol lol )
and once they had their material laid out, they had to sew it together (of course I had the power off .. so they wouldn't get hurt, but don't tell them .. lol)
Around noonish we went downstairs and made up lunch .. OH MY GOODNESS !!! IT WAS GOOD !!!!
Is it done yet ?? Is it done yet ?? Is it done yet ??
Oooo when it finished, it was BEAUTIFUL !!!!!
and I could have finished it, but I would have been horribly uncomfortable for the afternoon, and the rest of the day .. I ended up eating the short half leaving the big half for today .. I believe I can get away with 1/2 of the half for lunch and the other 1/2 of the half for dinner .. and still have a full meal .. I knew it was big, but not as big as it actually ended up .. so for $8 I'm getting 3 meals out of it .. Yup -- I'm proud of me !!!! :)
For dinner last night I had my 2 pieces of double fiber toast, with butter and jelly .. and it was yummmm .. and enough ..
We did send a couple texts to daddy .. they missed him .. (and so did I . lol)
They missed daddy .. As you can see .. I can easily entertain myself .. lol lol lol ..
So -- this morning, I have my area in the bedroom that I want to spot check with the carpet cleaner .. before mom .. After that I will get myself cleaned up so I'm ready to go by mom's .. They are threatening severe storms .. I hope I get home before they hit ..
If I get myself done before leaving to mom's I'm hoping to get my seams ironed out, and then tonight, I can put the connections together and by tonight, (hoping) I'll have the front panel done on my quilt .. then I can start working on the edges, and the middle .. THAT is the hard part (for me) .. but I will be able to take my time a bit with this ..
I'm looking forward to going by mom's today. We will be talking about Wednesday .. She was going to call her doctor and reschedule her appointment, and go with me to Madison.. I was going to suggest stopping at her favorite restaurant for dinner on our way home .. and just have a day to spend .. We'll see .. she peters out pretty quick lately .. *duhhh .. she's 91 years young* .. so we'll see what she says .. but that's my plans for Wednesday .. I told her I was going whether or not she was going with .. lol .. so if she can't she's not going to be changing my plans any .. :) lol lol .. (minus the dinner) .. but looking forward to going over by her (minus the threat of bad weather to drive in .. but it's starting to push north) ..
Okay -- gonna go make a few stops around here, and then up to my carpet cleaning, so I can get cleaned up and into my day !!!! lol...
You KNOW I couldn't finish my post without a critter picture .. lol (or 2)
Wish you a wonderful Sunday !!!! and welcome to Dove Cafe .. :)
