It's late Friday afternoon and I decided to put up a post, though truthfully I am beginning to think I might be boring you all to death as soo many of my posts are so similar. I guess I keep thinking that maybe I can think of something new, but this is really just the story of my life, and I guess it is pretty uneventful and ordinary right now. Which as I think about it, is a GOOD thing I guess.
This week has flown by in a cloud of heat. Honestly, you just wouldn't believe our weather. We have been in the UPPER 80's all week. It is made very bearable by the fact that we dip into the low 40's at night. So the house cools WAY down and is definitely somewhat chilly when we get up, but by 2 in the afternoon I have actually contemplated turning on the air conditioner. Haven't done it yet, as that seems soo wild for January, but this house is WARM. I would love a good old fashioned, COLD rain storm or two before the winter is over. SURELY it will happen!
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with my girlfriend the other day and how I thank God for her. We have been GOOD friends since we were 9 years old and have seen each other through all of life's ups and downs. And now as we are getting ready to turn 60 (she's closer than me, lol) we will see each other hopefully well into our days of aging. As I was driving home from our time together I thought to myself what an awesome God we have for putting such people into our lives.
My sister Danae came over yesterday as she is going to help me get some of these blankets cut out for her daughter. We too had such a good time. We had ourselves some BIG laughs as we fumbled around cutting things out. It is always more fun for me to work with someone. But our biggest laugh came from me doing a self video for little Sam. My daughter had sent one to me of him saying he wanted to talk to grandma. Oh my goodness.....it really IS a riot. And no, I can't possibly post it. Then you'd all know for sure what a loon I can be.
Today I put together 3 of the blankets, and cut out the binding for the quilt. I just got a call that it is finished but I think I will wait for tomorrow to go and pick it up though it is taking every ounce of my self control. I am sooo curious to see how it looks. It is really my very first quilt! Now it is a SMALL baby quit, but a quilt nonetheless. Hopefully the binding will go on quickly and easily. I will be glad when it is officially finished.
Not a lot planned for the week-end, but looking forward to it as always. See what I mean? Not much to report. I will leave you with a few pictures from my week. Hope you all have a WONDERFUL week-end.
