Mornings are getting colder and colder here. I turn the decorative deck lights on and enjoy them from inside now.
Yesterday was productive. 4 loads of laundry, some house uglies, and I made 4 lotto blocks. Today is going to be all about cleaning my sewing room and getting fabrics organized for Unicorn. Bill said he might get Lemur loaded onto the LA. Though today is supposed to be sunny with rain coming back tomorrow. So he might use today if he has any more outdoor chores he wants to get done first. He'll do what he'll do and it's all fine with me. This morning he's stressing over his cataract surgery. Being already blind in one eye is making him nervous and our travel plans - which could be adjusted - are complicating things. He's researching options, various ways the procedure is done, where he should have it done, when he should have it done, etc. He's starting to stress me out!
Carol - I'm glad you found your outing so interesting. I've heard nothing but wonderful things about that library. I think it would be fun to be able to visit all the presidential libraries. I didn't realize your sisters were in an accident, let alone had such bad injuries! When did this happen? The logistics of just simply getting to the bathroom can get really complicated with such injuries. Prayers everyone heals completely.
Lori - That sewing room tour sounds like it was fun. Did you make it to all five sewing rooms? Congratulations on winning the prize! And sweet of you to share it with someone else! Yes, my sister has had a lot of broken bones. Her arm was still in a sling when she met us in Texas the year she fell and fractured her knee. She'd taken a bad fall and broke her shoulder just before she left to meet us. We think in that fall she also cracked her knee so when she fell again 2 months later, it shattered. She also tripped on a coiled hose once and shattered her wrist and had external metal brace for 4 months that she had to tighten screws on every day. And she broke 2 vertebrae in her back years ago when she laid down her motorcycle at an intersection, and broke something else another time when she fell off the coffee table. I never got the full story about that one. It's a wonder she's survived to 80! For the record, I've only had one non-displaced wrist fracture from roller skating on my 16th birthday. I learned MY lesson early and I stay off the coffe table!
TINA - You are really crackin' on those quilts. Have you thought about keeping one of them on the LA and just making a pass or two each day interspersed with sewing the next top. My chiro tells me to alternate actions as much as possible to help my back, hips, sciatica, etc. You can always toss a sheet over the quilt on the frame to keep it hidden if necessary.
BECCA - your day with family sounds so enjoyable! I would have loved to tag along. Lunch and ice cream really put it over the top. You've raised such a nice family!
Tonite, we're having stir fried veggies over rice. I havent' made that for a while and just noticed that I have all the right veggies!
What's the plan for your supper?

We're waiting on Kevin and family to arrive and at 1 we're all going to Holly's for Preston's birthday party
Mary, gosh your sister has really tested her body out! She's what I think of when they say "accident waiting to happen"
Gosh that's a stressful decision to be making, for the best results.
I had that very thought about putting a quilt on the LA and taking turns. I have a sheet/cover on my LA so could just throw it over the whole thing. Thanks I think I'll load 1 tomorrow before I start squaring the next blocks up.
We're having pizza at the party and I'm not sure if we'll want supper but if we do maybe I'll just make a grilled cheese or eggs.

Mary, The cataract surgery is really easy and they can see right away. He'll be glad he did it once it's done. No need to stress about it. I too fractured my wrist roller skating. I was 9 and my mom thought I was faking to get out of doing the dishes that night. She felt really bad when I came home from the doctor the next day with a cast on my arm. I used that one against her forever. lol
Well we had a rat in the garage. Bill bought some traps and we were out there the other night looking them over, and the rat ran out the door. I wasn't sure it was the only one, so we put traps inside the garage and on the patio where I saw dropping. Today was like Christmas morning. I woke up and found a fat dead rat in the trap on the patio. I'll put the traps out again tonight just in case there are more.
Today I'm going to quilt the Halloween quilt, and finish a paper pieced block.
Dinner will be chicken noodle soup and corn bread.
have a lovely day.
