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 .
What a wonderful day I had yesterday .. hubby wanted to do a road trip, and I just didn't feel like it .. however, he read the flyer, and "I" had to be there to get the free money ... because it was my birthday money .. I broke down and told him that if he wanted to go, I would go .. thankfully he said no .. *whew* .. so I just started planning my day ..
As I was sitting and working on my blog, hubby decided the zoo was too cold yesterday, and so he headed toward the mall to get his stepping in .. After I finished what I wanted, I went upstairs and started working on tackling that monster that keeps growing and growing .. lol .. Well -- I finally have it so it won't grow anymore .. lol lol .. I finished the top ..
This is half of it .. *rolling eyes here* .. lol lol . My throw quilt turned into a queen size bedspread .. lol lol lol .. I told hubby that I wanted to see if I could find a flat sheet to be the bottom, because otherwise the material for the bottom would be about $30-$50 ... where a flat sheet would cost about $20 .. He made mention that he saw a display at Walmart, and I told him that's usually where I go ..
Once I had a chance to just sit for a bit; he offered to take me to my Walmart, where I found a rusty red sheet for the bottom .. and thankfully the king size sheet works .. lol .. I'll be able to trim the seams .. I think it will work .. After hubby finishes in the shower, I will throw it in the washer and give it a good washing .. to take the stiffness out of it .. and then I can glue it on, and start working on putting it together with the growing top ... lol lol lol .. I'm going to put the red border around it .. :) I'm seeing the end of the tunnel .. :)
While I was playing with my blog, my phone decided to go nuts .. As of next week Tuesday evening, I have a temporary job .. *sigh* Jimmy called and practically begged me to help with the physical inventory .. (I hated it when I was working there, but if they would have "been my bosses" I would have taken care of it .. but nope .. ... now Dan (CPA) has been pushing that that is the anchor, that is creating more taxes .. ) Well -- he sweettalked me into it ..and running the counting sheets, and helping with the inventory .. sooo I have a job for a few nights ... with the help of Leonard and Jimmy .. (and whoever else they get to stay .. which I wouldn't be surprised if it wasn't pretty much the whole company .. DO have to admit that they do rally together when needed but we'll see) ..
However, my phone hasn't rang that much in one day in like F-O-R-E-V-E-R .. between texting and phone calls .. my goodness .. lol lol ... I feel good .. it feels good to be wanted and needed .. even though I know I'm wanted and needed ... this was just the cherry on the sundae ... (and yes .. it is a weekend .. I can think about ice cream... lol)
So -- come Tuesday night I'll have a part time job for a bit .. the good news is they are willing to work with MY schedule .. that's a good thing .... :)
I'm happy to say that I felt good enough to do my PT exercises last night, and feel great this morning .. My evening PT exercises have been put on hold .. from working on my quilt .. my back was fitting .. even though I got up and moved every once in a while .. I put so much into it that I stiffen up .. and well -- by the end of the day I have electric pains shooting down from my hips .. sooo I chose not to push myself with the exercises (I HAVE still been doing my morning ones) and yesterday, while I was stiff by the end of the day; I could do my exercises slowly and precise ... that's a BIG YAY !!! and I slept well too !!!!
I came downstairs this morning to Uly being upset about something, and TD trying to console him .. I asked hubby what happened, and he said that "someone told Uly that you were gone again" .. I asked who did that and hubby didn't answer except with a shrug .. He knows better if he did ..lol lol .. So I had to cuddle with Uly to settle him down .. he didn't say who told him that, but when I find out, they will get coal in their stockings .. He's now back with Grampa Teddybear and getting consoled by him and TD ..
So -- hubby is out with mom right now running errands with her .. and my sheet is in the washer .. :) This may be a difficult problem, because I've never worked with something this big .. the good news is the batting I have for the center is thin .. so I'm hoping that will be better to work with it .. ALMOST thinking of bringing my sewing machine out of my playroom, and set it up in the bedroom, where there's more room, and I can set up another table to hold the weight as I sew .. You know -- that almost sounds like a good idea .. that will be my exercise for this morning, while the sheet is washing and drying .. :)
This will be my last sewing for a while anyway, (even though I have 2 more I want to make) because my next BIG project is to rip my playroom apart, and put it back together so it's a playroom, and not a junk room .. so maybe that might be a smart idea .. Hmmmmmmm :)
Okay -- that's my story for today .. I'm about to enjoy my day .. how about you ???
Have a super December 1st !!!!!
