Something Always Coming Up

It is about 90 degrees outside, do you think he is cold?  Makes me hot just looking at him on the way home from work.  The bus air condition was working fine.

July has been a little hard on me and we are only in the third week.  Tom’s father was rush to the hospital the 4th of July for a brain bleed.  He never woke up and passed on early Monday morning.  He was 92 years young.  His wife had to be admitted into the same hospital that morning also.  Her condition after learning of her husbands passing took a toll on her and the rest of the family.  She just got out yesterday (Monday), and yes it is almost two week and the family is just getting together to plan the funeral.  The funeral will be this Friday.

I have taken off of work this week to help out with things and get my house in order.  It has been neglected since the death.  Tom usually keeps up the cleaning, I just come home and cook and go to bed.  We have been eating out a lot, put today I am cooking.  I had a taste for some greens so they are on the stove cooking, I’ll also do chicken wigs, and make a pot of spaghetti for the boys.

Well, I did to get make to teleworking and see what happening in the office.

It’s Been Such A Long Time–Back In The Saddle Again

 

While I have the chicken thigh quarters in the glass oven cooking away, I thought I would get back in the saddle again and write a blog.

Since my last blog about the new car, I have been doing some running around and little to no quilting.  A few of my girlfriends (Jackie, Gwen and Linda) took a road trip to the Quilters Unlimited Quilt Show in Chantilly, VA, last month or was it earlier this month (not sure).  I did not take many pictures, and not sure if taken pictures of other people’s quilts and putting them on the blog is alright or not, so no pictures.

SAM_0064But here is a picture of me at Famous Davis, were we stopped of to grab something to eat.

Those ribs were great and messy, but as you 20140531_144148can see they have this new thing called a Sauce Remover.20140531_150955

I finished my 10th Anniversary Quilt in time for the Family Day Celebration last Saturday.  Instead of hang the quilts in the trees like we do every year, we had to hang them around the gym because of rain.  You can see all the quilts at the Wee Bee Blog, which I also write every three months for my Bee.

Well that is all for now.  I am still working on the Jacob’s Ladder quilt I started last month, I finish the last block last night, and will being butting it together hopefully over the 4th of July weekend.

So until tomorrow dear bloggers, please drop me a line and let me know you are still with me.

Happy Days Are Here Again

It has been a long time between blogs, but working and trying to keep up with the house work has been very tiring so I have not gotten much quilting done.  I have been stressing out lately about everything. Unfinished projects, things I need to get mailed out to a few bloggers, anniversary quilt and the Jacob’s Ladder quilt I am working on.

My one big stress is that I have been looking for a car.  Looking for a car is like buying a house.  Well, the stress is over with, I have a car, YAH!!!!!  To my BEST riding buddy's, who get me to the quilt meetings and bus trips Charlene and Linda (eat, sleep, quilt) now I can pick you up sometime.  Looking forward to hearing from you soon, since I am not going to call you to tell you.  Hey Pat (my other riding partner), I got wheels.

So what did I get you ask, a 2012 Nissan Altima.  Low millage, 1 owner, color is ocean gray (which looks like a baby blue).  I have informed the kids and Tom that they cannot use the car, and that I will not be running them around town.  Here are some pictures of the car.

I might not be buying any fabric anytime soon, but I have a lot that is just sitting around waiting to become a quilt or bag, so I am not too concern, I’m just HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY.

SOOOOO, until I quilt again, I will be riding into the sunset being HAPPY.

P.S.  Went on a interview for a job, hopefully I will get it and make the payments on the car easier.
