A Beautiful Day!
It's an absolutely glorious day!! We had rain all day yesterday, and it just washed all of the yuck out of the air, and left today being one of those brilliant blue and green days!! Oh, I love it, love it!!! I was supposed to have had a phyical therapy appt. this a.m., but our road (which is being made into a road LOL) was completely blocked by a backhoe that had broken down smack dab in the middle of the road. No room to pass on either side of it, so I came on back home, called and rescheduled PT for in the a.m., stripped our bed, and tossed those sheets in the washer. Oh I would love to have tons of energy (like my dearly-loved sister and niece), but I don't, so I will grab it as it makes an occasional pass by me. :) I've even been in the process of trying to clear the dang island in the kitchen which is where EVERYTHING gets dropped...by my dear husband-- as well as by me!! I really can't blame it all on him (*G*) cause I have one corner that catches all recipes, internet printouts, calendar, etc. I may even make some dust fly today---and wouldn't it be wonderful if we could actually see out of these big windows of ours ROFL to watch, to borrow dear Finn's words, Miss Autumn arriving in our neck of the woods!!! ROFL Too bad my windows are so dirty you can't see out of them!!! ROFLLLL Psst, a little secret here, lean closer now----I really really don't like cleaning house. There, the secret is out!! :) Do with it what you will. LOL I have had appts. all week so I had to let yesterday slip by without a word from me because I didn't get home until late and was so emotionally and physically drained, that I had nothing good to say, and no energy to say it with anyway LOL, so I just plopped down on the couch with my two new Australian Threads magazines that were in the mail yesterday until I dragged myself off to bed. :) And oh I must tell you they are both excellent issues. Of course, I want to make one of everything in them!!! I could live to be a couple of hundred years old, yes that's right, a COUPLE of HUNdRED years old, and I still would have a huge list of quilts and quilty items that I would want to make. I think I should just move in with Jeanne over at www.spiralj.blogspot.com and enjoy all of her quilts. I have serious "quilt envy" over that woman's quilts. Lots and lots of them, she has!! And they are all gorgeous!!! :) I really would like to know how she gets them done so quickly. At some point I will have to write a bit about my friend that is only 64 and is suffering from Parkinsonism, and now Alzheimers, just to try and sort it out for myself. I saw her yesterday, and it had been quite some time since I had seen her, so the shock and sadness were tremendous. But that's for another day. Can't go there right now. I will just say that it reinforces for me that I must make the most of TODAY, enjoy every minute of whatever it holds, and leave tomorrow to tomorrow (which never really comes anyway). I apologize for the double picture post from day-before-yesterday. I had one &8*&* of a time getting them up there, and then Blogger decides you need to see duplicates! LOL I'm trying now to post a picture of my "boys": Dewey, Badger and Homer Kitty. I'll find some frontal views LOL at some point so you can see their sweet faces. :) I've also included a picture of a tiny little quilt that I recently made from leftover HSTs. Now I best get up from here...the day is passing as quickly as hummingbirds' wings move, and I have chores waiting to be done....and of course, fabrics that are calling to me that they want to be let out of the stash closet and put to use!! :)
