Checking in again

I haven't been on the computer much except to read a few blogs and check email. Larry/dh/Hog Man has been needing something to keep him occupied. LOL Did you know there must be thousands of hunting videos online to watch. I had no idea. Thank God for the internet.

We went Friday for one of the pre-op appointments. Took Hog Man to Cabela's to look around afterwards. They have an elevator. I did not remember that. Hog Man did. He had a good time looking around. That place is always busy.

I had fabric sales two Saturdays in a row. Very successful. Thanks everyone. The Sunday after the first one I woke up at 1am (Ruby barking like crazy outside). I got up to see what was tripping her trigger. Someone's dogs out roaming. I get steamed about that. Don't get me started. I had a horrible throbbing headache. You know the kind. The one you remember having when you had the flu. I started praying. I don't need to be sick right now kind of prayer. Thank, God, I never got the full blown stuff. But laid around Sunday and napped and rested. Sunday night I wake up to hearing Hog Man in the bathroom emptying his stomach. Poor guy. He can't move around too fast these days. So, yeah, yuck. It was just a 24 hour thing; thanks be to God. So we both were pretty worthless for a couple of days.

Went to quilt club Wednesday. We're seeing the end approaching of Bonnie's quilt. Poor Bonnie. She fell and broke a bone in her leg right before Thanksgiving and is just now being able to bend her leg a little each day. The break was right below her knee. Bad place.

We had snow the first part of December. It melted right away. Not anymore since then. We've had some well needed rain the past week. We have what we call wild rye grass in our yard. It needs mowing. I don't ever remember having wild rye that grew so much in the winter and needed mowing. I've got to get down and get an air tank so I can air up the front tires on the riding lawn mower. Then I can mow. Just one more thing to do. : )

Oh, Amanda, our daughter, and Aimee, DGD, came the first Sat. of my fabric sales. I already knew that several were coming and thought maybe I could use some help cutting fabric. SO glad I called her. We were swamped the first two hours. Amanda cut fabric and Aimee carried bolts of fabric back and forth. They were wonderful. Did I tell you that my daughter--MY DAUGHTER--who always said she didn't like sewing is SEWING? Maybe it was she and I back then. Maybe I wasn't patient enough with her. Because she said when I was helping Aimee--"Mom, you're different now."  My reply--"I'm older and wiser now."  Why or why does wisdom have to come with age? How many times do we say I wish I knew what I know now back then.  Anyway, I am so glad she is sewing. And she and Aimee are doing it together.  : ) But you know I am watching them and I am so grinning. Amanda is going to get to say the same thing some day. "I'm older and wiser now." LOL

We have another pre-op appointment this next week and then the surgery we have been so waiting and praying for will happen soon.

Remember these? I replaced the three yellow centers that had fabric that bled on them. I turned them over and cut away the background fabric to make it easier to hand quilt. Next I will square them all up and begin cutting sashing fabric. Then lay it all out on my design "bed" and put it all together. Hopefully I can get them done in the evenings this next week.
Blessings everyone,
