After a stormy day yesterday we should be clear and sunny today, if still chilly. We will be pulling up stakes in a couple of hours and starting for Colorado. Praying for travel mercies!
Two trailers next to us partied Hearty last night And ended up vomiting only a few feet from our trailer. That was fun to listen to. Then someone was setting off fireworks that we watched through the skylight over our bed. Scotty whined and cried for an hour and Foxy ran through his kitty flap and hid in the storage bins below. It was a wild night. It’s sure too bad for those party folks that we have plans for an early departure, and a diesel engine that will need a long warm up.
This is going to be short. Going to get a shower, breakfast, and get ready to roll. We have 250 miles to make. Y’all have a great first Day to what I know we all hope will be a much better new year!

Our new years eve was like any other night. Early to bed early to rise.
Jerry made me a pizza last night and the crust was cream cheese, parm cheese and an egg. It turned out quite well. He is learning new recipes.
I'm on the hunt for an Advent calendar pattern. My neighbor was saying she wanted to do one next year for her boys. I kind of think I have a panel in my sewing room, sure wish someone would come help me clean and organize, I'll be here all day, just show up.
Found a cute free table runner of the month pattern herehttps://suzyssitcom.com/2021/01/join-th ... along.html
This morning I will look for some free block of the month type programs, I need to get back into sewing.
Maryz, happy travels, hope the weather stays at your back.
You girls have a marvy day,

I got a message that our friend Kathy was moved to rehab and was there one day. She was promptly sent back to the hospital. I wish I knew more..but this has been third hand info,,,,prayers are needed it seems.
Todqy we will undecorate and hang around here,,,I think.....we may have to run to home Depot for supplies as the pantry and storage room may be ready to paint this weekend. I went through the paint bins and need a few new brushes and rollers...I need a can of good primer too...we also have to check on floor tile and glue for the new floors...we have some left over tile for the pantry but not enough to do the storage room. we will get inexpensive tile for the storgage, I am looking at vinyl plank flooring for the rest of the room.
Hope you all have a good new years,,,need to find something for supper. prayers for all of you...and my love for your friendship and kindness...XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I hope and pray 2021 is better for everyone. We traditionally watch the big ball drop on the east coast and ring our new year in an hour later and then to bed by one. Today is usually simple coffee cake breakfast and kinda on your own self serve as I love to watch college football games and the rose parade. Since a lot of that is not possible it will still be low key on the cooking and a sew day for me. Glad to be rid of 2020 all though the year made it possible to make 31 quilt tops for charity. Will like to keep that going this year too.
To all my quilter friends I have made through out the years, blessings to all of you may you be blessed as you are such a blessing to all of us.
Prayers go out for all in need mentioned and those not mentioned too. Safe travel to those traveling. Be well,safe and hugs to all.
Happy New Year

We were treated to fireworks starting as soon as it got dark, around 5 pm to just after midnight! Must have been all the polar bears that live near me, they're the only ones fit to be out in those cold temps last night. We are at 15 right now!
Sewed until late in the Batt Cave. Sewed and squared up 170 blocks for this quilt. Also have the next color, 85 more blocks ready to assemble and then mark, sew and square up. Then one last color to do the same. That will be a total of 340 blocks. Then on to the main block of sewing the four colors together. Learned that I need to either finish assembly or mark what I did well, before making a project a UFO! Spent a bit of time rechecked my work. New Year's resolution, NO MORE UFO's!
So after that resolution, Sarah in cleaning up her new sewing space, brought me all the scraps for the baskets here and one of her quilts in pieces parts!
Matt is doing well and the last of his family, Crenda, tested positive for the virus. So far, she is doing well handling it. We pray it stays that way. This all started around the 13th of December and now will need another two weeks or so to be done! Kate and Aaron are both on the list of those to be vaccinated first.
We had a tiny bit of a storm and all the idiot drivers came out of the woodwork! Aaron's shift starts around 6 am and by 10 am, he and the troopers responded to 105 crashes! Aaron was called in on his normal day off to work yesterday. Aaron was on his way to a major crash, when the car in front of him, lost control, spun and nailed the wall. Aaron waved and had to leave the single car incident to attend to the bigger multiple car incident he was first called too. He felt bad for the guy. It was a busy day!
Stay Safe! Prayers!
