AWESOMMMMEEEE DAYYYYYY yesterday !!!!!!! WOOHOO !!!!!!!
Hubby had me a bit uncomfortable, because he was really quiet in the morning .. but that changed after coming home from escorting mom .. he seemed much more relaxed .. but that was my only hiccup in my yesterday ..
I left around 10ish to check to see if my nail place was open .. Nope . I stopped at my second place .. nope.. not there either .. so I didn't get my nails done, but we'll do that this morning .. cuz I have dinner with friends tonight !!! :)
But back to yesterday !!!! What a GREAT day !!!!
Before hubby left; he looked outside, and there was a massive (beautiful) deer in the back of our lot (right before our back 40) ...and he was sooo beautiful; and majestic .. I didn't see any horn buds, but this one had to have been a male .. he was HUGE !!!!
I spent the early afternoon after hubby left for mom's .. in the kitchen making a yummy meatloaf, and making the other half of meat into hamburger helper beef and pasta .. It was a 4 pound pack of meat, and well -- I had told hubby that I was splitting it up because that would have made a massive meatloaf .. lol lol lol .. As much as I wanted meatloaf, I didn't want it THAT much ... lol lol ..
But my meatloaf came out yummy, and I had a small bowl of the hamburger helper for lunch .. I was hungry and reaching for sugar based stuff .. so thought a small bowl of hamburger helper was better than that .. :) .. It was pretty yummy .. :)
I sat and watched our hummers .. we had a constant traffic to the feeders .. and it was like watching an aerial ballet .. they were fun to watch .. :) The most we had had at one time was 3 .. zooming and swooping .. and dodging the bees .. but everyone played nice, so I didn't go out with a glass of water to swoosh the bees .. If they get overwhelming for the hummers, I go out with a glass of water and splash the feeders ... at least one of them; so the hummers can get in .. but they were all playing nice together .. :)
And then I found myself wanting to snack, and my meatloaf was finally done and out of the oven; so I went upstairs ..
I found my video that helped me with the border, and well --- watched how to connect the ends of the border, and held my breath; and went for it !!! I made one booboo, but nothing detrimental .. I made my tails too short; and well .. it was difficult to connect them, but I did it .. I watched it again, and again, and again .. while I was doing the connection, and cursing that I didn't make my tails longer (will remember for next time .. lol lol .. ) (probably not .. lol) but I got it together .. Once I finished the sewing of the border, I took a deeeeeeep breath, because the last part was easy .. manual stitching for the backside of the border .. :)
I worked on it, and got 2 sides done before hubby came home, and wanted dinner ..
I came downstairs and we had dinner .. the meatloaf is almost gone .. *eek* .. lol lol .. I packed up the rest of the stuff, and cleaned up my kitchen .. and headed back upstairs .. :) continuing on my quilt .. :)
I FINISHED IT !!!!!!
I borrowed my "quilt holder" for the picture .. lol lol .. as long as he was behind it it was fine .. (he was in his pj's .. lol)
Here is closer look for the puppy pattern . ... :)
It's not perfect, but it was fun !!! it's hand made, and I DID IT!!! All by myself !!!!! WOOOHOOO !!!!!!!!
I posted it on FB and made mention it will be my donation to the November trials raffle, to help raise money for the Jefferson K9 unit .. and my friends from puppy club swooned .. :) I didn't want to post my intentions before that; because well .. with life the way it was going, I didn't know if I'd finish it by November .. cuz I knew how to do the top, but after that, I needed to figure out how to finish it .. :) Now I know what I'm doing; I should keep up with it .. lol ..(and make some more .. lol lol lol .. )
Anyway -- I finished it !!!! and well -- it's promised now .. :) and I'm proud to donate it ..:)
I slept like the proverbial log !!!! I have everything off my brain and well -- you know how that works .. :) Nothing to keep me awake .. lol lol lol
So -- today will be starting out with my nail stop and get freshened up; and then dinner tonight with my friends .. :) Dinner is at 5:30, so thinking of getting to the mall at about 4ish and get an hour of walking in before hand .. :) I think I can get a lap or 2 in .. :) and still have time to cool down .. :)
Hubby is off to his free money down in Milwaukee, so I have time .. :) I just don't have any urge to go to casino's this week .. I've been having fun with other stuff .. :)
So -- with that being said .. I wish everyone a great day !!!!!
