Memories, do you ever sit back and think about when you were growing up, your sisters and brothers, friends ,etc. I often do and never realize just how much you miss the good ole days. I found the quilt the other day packed away and remembered my grandmother made the top and then later on in years my mother quilted it. It is ragged and torn now but such a wonderful piece of art and memory. I remember from the ceiling my dad made a quilt frame that you could lower when she wanted to quilt, roll it up when she finished for the day. On Wednesdays the church ladies all came over to quilt and donate their project to the homeless or church members in need. Such wonderful great times.

Thursday Greetings

Well, since I have been up since 1:30am. I have almost finished the daily chores.

Went to Wal-Mart at 6.30am. Wow, now that is early. My son is comming in today from Tennessee so I needed to get a few things for him. Will make Gumbo tomorrow as he does like that. Never to old to please my children. My great grandson, Landyn, is doing better so hopefully he will get to go home after over 90 days in the hospital. He is a fighter and God is good. You have a wonderful day.

Tuesday Hello

Woke up this morning with coffee on my mind. Do you ever do that, think of your first cup of coffee? I started a Afghan called the Button. I have been slow this week due to a bad headache, so went to the Doctor yesterday and as usual it is my BP. So today will just relax, crochet and maybe look through pattern books.

Well, can you guess what my day was like today? Yep, the ole laundry stuff. I can remember when my mother did laundry with a tub like the picture shows. Now, those were the good ole days for sure. Raining here in sunny Florida this afternoon. We are to get high winds and hard rains later tonight. Good night for a good book and nice bed.

Good Morning, Well I finally did it. I broke down and bought myself a Kindle. All the money I was putting into books, this will pay for itself in a short time. I love reading the Amish stories and found out so many are free to download so right there I have saved alot.

Going to work on a few crochet items today as hubby is going off for a few days to the hunting camp so finally some alone quiet time. Gotta love it.

Want to know what I am doing today? lol, yep nag my hubby day. My honey do list is really getting larger so it is time to lite the fire as they say. The Holidays are over so time to get back into the routine and work some of that Holiday eating off.

I did some crochet ing yesterday but think today will be a mother/daughter day out. I need to get some energy back in this ole gal. Made a delacious Coconut cake yesterday and it was really great. Maybe will give the hubby a piece if he does some of his chores. Have a great day.

2012, my goodness, how time does fly. I remember when I was younger, I counted the days until I would turn 16 so I could get my drivers licenses and so to speak be on my own. lol Was I nuts or what? Going to be a rather slow day today with most taking Monday as a Holiday since New Years day fell on a Sunday this year. Just another work day of cleaning, laundry and whatever here in sunny Florida for me. I am working on headbands today, have a order for 3 of them so will let the ole hook fly and get that done. Wishing you a good stress free day.
