Calgon, take me away…

My bathtub is back. Ahhhhh….. It only took four days for me to realize having the duckies inside was NOT going to work long term. It did get them past the worst of the cold, I think. And I am more confident now about keeping them warm when the temps dip down, as the forecast (if…

Cat calamities and other nonsense…

This little number has been progressing nicely… She did, indeed, go with me to Oklahoma this weekend. I stitched on her whenever time was available. We stayed fairly busy, even though we had little planned. H went to the Laker’s Game in Oklahoma City with family Friday night…I opted out and instead went to the…

Karma or coincidence?

I couldn’t get started just now until all my photos were uploaded. I’m not sure why I couldn’t just start writing, other than I couldn’t think of what I wanted to say until those photos left my phone and arrived on the computer where I could add them here. Maybe it’s because I don’t have…

Getting it wrong…

I read a blog post recently which gave new bloggers tips for how to do things right on a blog. It went something like: post at the same time every day, have a detailed explanation of exactly what your blog is about, respond immediately to every comment (not to do so supposedly shows you don’t…

Path…

It feels too early for me to write anything. I’m not sure my brain is working yet. But I want to spend the bulk of the day stitching and relaxing, although a bath and badly needed hair wash is next on the agenda, so it seems like the best plan is to write now, play later….

Not a quilter…

The days have been very cold…and windy. Not really to our liking, at all. There has been a lot of indoor time, looking outside, listening to wind chimes… Playing inside in boxes… And desperate faces at the window… Not much to write home about. Seeing how there wasn’t a lot going on, I took the…

Just. One. Thing.

I made it up to the sewing room a few nights ago. It’s cold up there in winter, so I have a tendency to work on projects downstairs rather than spending much time there. I had some items to take up and took a moment to look around. All my unfinished projects were staring me…

She waited to bloom…

I was so excited to get home and find this was just beginning… She waited until I got home to begin blooming! I’m so excited and have been watching the slow progress. She has more blooms on the way, some are just starting, so I’m hoping I get to enjoy this color for a while….

Before I go…

I wanted to write one more post as I will be gone for the next 5 days or so. I don’t have a lot to say. Just that it’s been a rough one. I managed to go for a brief walk, maybe 1 1/2 miles, doing laps in the backyard. I took the string I…

Ode to beauty pink…

Before I get things started, I just wanted to say… Hi. Welcome to our home. Have a snake. It was the original unfortunate garter snake Olive was playing with the other day. It’s flatter and more dehydrated since the first time I saw it, but it was evidently stashed away for safekeeping. I wonder if…

Stormageddon…Icemageddon…whatever…

People in my neck of the woods have gotten super riled up over the last couple of storms. It has bordered on the hysterical at times, with people lining up to buy generators and groceries and some claiming online that the storms would cause many deaths. Me and H? We drove 45 minutes north yesterday to go…

The clarity of fever…

I knew there was a reason I didn’t want to go out in public New Year’s Day. Flu. It’s been 3 years since I had it, so I missed the warning signs. The deep dull ear ache, the abnormal craving for sugar, the lethargy. I could have prevented it if I’d been more on my…
