I Didn't Make My Bed Today

I didn't make my bed today. That may not seem like a big deal, but it is for me.  I ALWAYS make my bed. Even when I know I'm going to be changing the sheets that day, I still make it.

Remodeling is NOT for Sissies!

My husband, David, is a master at taking advantage of opportunities to get things done. Unfortunately, those opportunities doesn't always come with any warning so I have to be ready to switch gears at a moment's notice.

How I Learned About Black Friday

I'm not a shopper. Once in a while I get in the mood to shop and then I can shop with the best of them. But most of the time I shop like a man. I have a list. I get in, get it and get out. I hate sale racks, thrift stores and stores set up like thrift stores. They're overwhelming. I'd rather pay extra and get it over with than look for a deal.

The Year I Skipped Thanksgiving

I've been hosting Thanksgiving at my house for years and years and years.  I don't mind at all - it's my favorite holiday and I love having it at my house.

But one year

Flying Turds!

I love Monday mornings but this Monday morning didn't get off to a great start. My normal routine is to get up, get dressed, let the puppy out to pee, feed the puppy and let the puppy out again so she can poop.

I HATE getting up early!

I HATE getting up early.  I don't mean that I don't like it, I mean that I HATE it.  You can ask anyone in my family and they'll tell you how much I hate getting up early.

It started when I was a kid.

Thanksgiving is Next Thursday???

Please tell me Thanksgiving really isn't next Thursday! It seems like yesterday that I checked the calendar and it was at least three weeks away.  But now it's only one week.  How in the world did that happen???

Actually I can tell you how it happened.

My Latest Quilt Project

Have I mentioned that I love quilting? I don't especially love sewing the quilt top together, but I love hand quilting the top. It's relaxing and satisfying.

I'm almost finished with my granddaughter's Hello Kitty quilt so I took some time to put together the next quilt. This one is for my best friend's son and daughter-in-law's new baby - due in December.  Yes, December. There's a good chance I won't have it done by then but they know it's coming!

Why Did I Get a Puppy?

About three weeks ago I got a six-week-old chocolate lab puppy who I named Lucy.  I knew having a puppy would be a lot of work but I wasn't prepared for how awful it would be.
