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 ice for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
I think my hubby's battery needed changing yesterday .. he was sooo far out of it, I didn't even want to really talk with him because it was like a challenge .. I think his battery just ran down .. He seems better this morning.. I think his circuits were just cold .. which doesn't take much .. He was so mopey, I actually broke down and turned on the furnace for him .. at least to 69 .. the house was at 62, and I was even cold ..(but wasn't about to admit it !!! :) ) and hubby is cold when it's in the 80s .. *sigh* .. Just like "jack sprat could eat no fat, and his wife could eat no lean" .. We've talked about how we wish that I could give him some of my hot, and he could give me some of his cold ... but alas .. that's never going to happen ..the only thing I can hope for is to lose weight .. when I was thinner, I was alot more tolerant with the warm and heat .. ANYWHOOOOOOO ....
He was out of sorts yesterday .. but seems better this morning .. maybe his battery did just need a recharge ..he never left the house yesterday ...
Other than that .. I had a wonderful day yesterday .. We finished up our prime rib from Saturday night .. I actually had 2 more meals out of my Saturday dinner .. :) I finished up the veggies and half of my leftover meat for lunch, and then the last piece I scrambled up with 3 eggs for dinner .. and it was YUMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!
I went by mom's in the afternoon and had such a wonderful time .. We talked, and we chatted, and her neighbor, Ceile came over with a prize find that she bought at a church fall festival that she went to as a birthday present for her granddaughter .. and I showed mom and Ceile my progress on my new quilt project .. and my next step and mom gave me a few good suggestions .. :) I told them I have my next one in the works in my brain .. lol lol .. I have some strips that I was going to use to border my squares (9 patches as Ceile taught me) ..lol .. (Ceile does BEAUTIFUL quilts .... levels to where I will never get to!!) .. Mom is saving me money as well .. and gave me her quilt batting .. That's the expensive parts of doing these .. so she saved me lots of money .. :)
I told them I was going to use some strips that I had bought, but the strips are bright white, and the material I'm using; are off white, and gold tones.... and it looked sooo far out of whack .. Glad I made the decisions I made .... :) Mom made a few other suggestions that actually sound like it would make my squares so much cleaner when all is said and done .. :)
There was a slight smirk on Ceile's face when I told her of my next project, since I couldn't use the strips for this project .. and then my next project after that and my next project after that !!!! and my next project after that ..lol lol lol
Mom showed us her projects she's working on .. she's working on an embrodery table throw .. and it's going to be really pretty, and she's got 2 kits to crochet a tree skirt, and an afgan .. The only thing I don't like, is she keeps talking about "so you can finish them after I am gone" .. I know it's inevitable, and she is 92 years young .. but I hate when she says stuff like that ..
But it was a fun time .. we talked about our plans of Thursday.. and she's looking forward to it .. I told her I would pick her up at 9, and take the country roads up; so she can see some of the changing of colors and get up there around lunch, have our lunch, and then play for a few hours .. Mom doesn't last long anymore, but she enjoys herself .. so it was a fun day .. :)
We also did a puzzle .. and it turned out sooo pretty !!!!!
Gee I wonder why I love it so much .. lol lol lol lol .
I got home with a ton of stuff from mom's ..the batting, some things for our coffee and tea baskets; and one of those rubbermaid storage cabinets .. so I came home with a big haul .. :) and alot more ideas for my quilt... I think this one is going to be more of a lap quilt, but we'll see .. I'm not done yet .. lol lol ..
I'm looking forward to meeting up with Leonard for lunch today .. but that's not until 11:30 .. (I can leave around 11:15 .. it's not that far away) but looking forward to that .. :)
I'm not sure what tomorrow has to give me yet .. ?? I think I'll enjoy today first .. :) Surprise surprise .. my back feels pretty good this morning so far; and well -- I got my notice reminder for next week "school starting" .. lol lol .. go figure !!! lol .. No .. I'm not cancelling !!! because if I don't learn how to do what I need to do .. my back WILL be back ..lol lol ..
So -- I'm going to enjoy my day today .. rainy or not .. I think this morning I'll start working on my next row of my quilt .. that will keep me busy .. lol lol .. busy is goooooood !!!! :)
Wishing you a wonderful day as well !!!!! :)
