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 had a productive and fun day yesterday .. I got my bottom panel washed up and ironed, and I cut my border material, and got that sewn together, and ironed .. 340 inches worth .. :) and I got my bottom tacked to my top ..
I SEE THE END I SEE THE END !!!! It's apparently turning into about a queen size quilt .. :) Still bigger than I've dealt with .. lol Instead of pushing myself, since I was working on the living room floor... I didn't do like I normally do, and try and push myself ... I told hubby that he would have to change his walking path, (which he didn't, he could scoot along the side of it, once I got the edges trimmed .. (he walks around the house getting his steps that he didn't get during the day) ) I would tack a row or 2 .. and then take a break, and sit and rest, and then do another couple rows, and take a rest .. etc etc ... It took longer, but it got done, and I didn't suffer trying to do it all .. lol .. I could still do my PT exercises last night .. :) WOOHOO !!!!!
So .. tomorrow I'll probably run "stitch in a ditch" to do the quilting and then I can work on putting on the border, and then the hand stitching to finish up the border . :)
Hubby spent the day with mom yesterday .. she changed to morning shopping instead of afternoon, because she was concerned about the weather. Hubby came back home in time for lunch; and then headed back out to take mom to her nail appointment .. I giggled .. mom has no concept of time .. she told hubby that her appointment would take 1 1/2 hours .. I told him no .. possibly 45 minutes maybe because it sounds like she needs more work because of broken nails; an hour .. I have never had one take 1 1/2 hours .. but wait .. this last time it did, but the "dipping" doesn't take any longer but this time it did .. because I had some spots that were being stubborn, and she was taking her time which I appreciated .. so that was the ONLY time it took almost 1 1/2 hours .. so I told hubby to go back in about 45 minutes (he was dropping her off, and then went to KMart across the street and walked in that strip mall ... ) ... He said he got back in 45 minutes and she was sitting there waiting for him ..
I offered to take her to this, because this was more a girly thing, but he said no .. so I played some more with my quilt .. :)
It was good that mom babysat with him yesterday, because yesterday morning he was just silly .. super silly .. and I told mom to wear her goofy hat .. lol ..
She asked hubby if he heard about her antics of last week, and asked why he didn't say anything .. he told her that it sounded like she was getting blasted from everywhere else .. he didn't have to add anything .. lol lol ..
So he had a good day with mom .. and today is my turn .. When she called and told me that she was sending him home; she said that the weather was going to be bad tomorrow (today) that I shouldn't come over .. I told her I am coming over if I have to pack an overnight bag to do so .. (but I don't think that will be necessary .. lol because it will be sloppy but not bad dangerous) ..
I keep hearing guns going off around us .. and I pray that my little herd of deer are safe and stay safe .. :( (live in the country settings .. with farm fields around us)
This morning I am planning on setting up my corner in the bedroom, with the second table for support; and work on stitching in a ditch (to quilt) ..
Then this afternoon going over by mom's, and tonight getting some sleep .. because it's going to be a weird busy week .. with helping at the office .. yes .. they miss me, and I'm gullible enough to just believe that they miss me .. :)
There is good news to keeping myself busy .. I have been holding my "end of vacation" weight for the last 1 1/2 weeks; and that's down 4 pounds from my beginning vacation weight .. I'm a slow squeak away from the 220's again . :) and haven't been there for over 10 months .. I can see it I can see it .. :) When my quilt is done, I'll have to find something else .. which I'm planning on working on cleaning my playroom .. :) I can hold my come home weight .. if not drop it .. Keeping busy, keeps me away from snacking.. WOOHOO !!!!! :)
Hope you choose fun !!! :) Have a great day .. I'm going to !!!! :)
