I received these lovely angels from Carol Mindrup from AZ and I just love them. One the left is a hanging angel, ornament, and the one on the right is a pin..for sure will wear it and I just might put a pin back on the other too..She said I am an angel, Carol you are an angel..It made my day yesterday. Was a rough one but got over it. Thank you so much.
LOOK! No tree...oh could not wait to get it down..but think it got the best of me. My son brought my chair back last night and I had dinner ready for him..I love cooking for my sons..When I know ahead of time they are coming I will try my best and see what I can make. If they can not stay and eat, I make them take it home..We had chicken breast, one of his favorite meats. We both love pork, any way..lol our favorite meat..I know it is not suppose to be good...but I do not care for beef as it does not like me..If I eat to much in a week I end with spasms in my stomach and that hurts. So I hardly eat beef.
I was in such a hurry to get the tree down so that dh could help put it away, my ornaments where just piled every where and not in order like I usually do..so this was not fun when it came to packing them up..even the bottom ones..
The breakables on my chair..had to remind myself not to sit there, it was a constant reminder too as this is where I knit..lol
I have been struggling with my fire for my dragons on my son's quilt to shoot out of there mouths. This is probably the 5 or 6 th time I have drafted a design. I think I like this one so now to the fabrics and techniques to use. I always put these to on my draft in case I can not get to right away.. If I know me I probably will re draft it again..lol but will try and stay with it as I want to get this quilt done before May, 4 years ago I started this quilt..lol
I was rudely awaken but a very loud pounding on my door yesterday morning. by the contractor for the awning and roof..Now I did not feel good so I stayed in bed, pondering and thinking, I was cold so being in bed in with my electric blanket fit me to the tea ...So with Suzie barking her head off and the door pounding, I had no choice, had no idea who it was..so I go to the door and it is the guy that been calling for an appt to look at the damages..now he has no appt but took it upon himself to just come over. I guess he thought he could just go to the back yard and check it out..no way, All my gates are locked from the backside..Well, they have to come in through the house to get to deck..I let him and show him where the damage is and he can not wait for me to get everything opened..we have sliding glass doors and have extra protection too there..He is trying to help , but remember he got me out of bed!! lol On my sliding glass doors are my stain glass butterflies my girlfriend that died last May bought me from Pa. Well he pushes the to the side so hard 3 of them fell off and other hanging things..I told him he did not need that much pressure if he had waited for me to opened it..Anyway when he raised his arms I can tell you I was fully awake from his body order, thought he was going knock me out..so I stood back and watch him opened the door..and let him do his thing. One of the hooks of one the butterflies is broken but the rest made as they fell on the rug that is at my back door. WHEW!! He can not get over the damages..It is as clean as I can get the deck. I even went out and swept the few leaves that fell of the roof recently for the electrical people this morning, at least they called again for an apt..lol He can not get over the damages, either..A lot of work is going to have to be done..so I do not know where we stand..but the guy from yesterday told me we are covered and we will get a new awning and the roof fixed..he said that is why I have insurance..that took a load of me for sure.
We have a new fridge, a CD player, and a new sewing machine.. so now we just need our awning to be fixed..
I have been working on the a new class that I will be teaching and almost done. Dh loaded word for me..though the whole time I was working on works..lol dahhhhhhh I had it already but now it is the newer version. He also put a new Outlook Mail in and love it. I can do tasking, calendar and all sort of things, when I check in the morning it there for me to print it out. You can do by days or time..love it. I am glad everything is almost over here and I guess it is time for this chat to be over too. thanks for listening...I hope my stomach feels a lot better tomorrow as I spent most of the day in bed because of it..I hope it is not a virus..do not know where it came from...keeping fingers cross..hope tomorrow will be more productive.
Oh, I have an eBay name, deleted my website, the extra blog so I feel refreshed on these areas for the new year.
