Early Morning! from Quilting My Way

 After finally getting to bed around midnight - 1 am this morning, I found myself waking up through the night. Both mom and Daisy were moving around. We then got up at 6 am to be out the door by 6:50 am. I stopped at McD's and then Starbucks to get us breakfast. Once that was done, then we were on the road to Olympia for Daisy's eye appointment. 

We arrived about 10 mins early for the 8 am appointment. We pulled in lot #6 to find a sign there telling us to call "this number" and wait ...

Staying At Moms Tonight from Quilting My Way

 My day started at running. I made a cake for Patrick.  It was his mother's receipe of Chocolate Chip Date Cake. One of the family's favorites. 

I got laundry going. Then went downstairs to iron 2 more background fabrics. Once I was on a roll, I decided to bead again.

The good news is that I got 5 rows in. 116/580 rows completed. 

Then it was time to drop 4 quilts off at Faye's for Bill to pick up Tuesday. Then headed here to moms.  

Tomorrow we will be heading to Tumwater to the vets for ...

Starting Out Busy from Quilting My Way

This morning I made some blueberry muffins. They turned out really good. We used the fresh blueberries from our backyard. They are the bigger ones that are just now starting to ripen. Boy! Are they good. I was going to give them to Phil but Patrick didn't want to give away the big blueberries. lol I had Patrick help me - once he was dressed and wanted to help. I was pretty close to being done by that time. 

Then I went downstairs and cut the batting and backing for the quilts that Sue K brought to me on Wednesday ...

It's Like Counting The Days from Quilting My Way

 Today is Thursday. Tomorrow will be Friday. I feel like I'm counting the days, yet I have no idea why. Maybe because I want to do more and can't because of the virus. I want to go out to eat without having to worry about someone not wearing a mask. I don't know, I'm just thinking each day, "Today is....."

I didn't get moving very fast today. When I did, we went shopping. It was time to go get some groceries. We picked up a few thing - have most of what we needed. Just got ...

To Olympia And Back from Quilting My Way

I had an appointment in Olympia for a CT scan. We left early because I needed to get some blood tests as well. We ended up being an hour early for the CT scan. The good news is that they took me in within 15 mins. Then we headed to Costco. 


We didn't have much we needed at Costco. So, we picked up the few things that were on the list. I also wanted nuts, which we picked up. 

We headed home and by the time I was able to sit and bead, it was 2 pm. I did ...

Another Tuesday Is Over from Quilting My Way

This morning I slept in. Didn't want to get up at all. I forced myself to get up at close to 10 am. I rarely sleep that late. I'm usually up by 8 am if not earlier. Not sure what's going on, but it did feel good to sleep in. 


I got laundry going and then got to work on my beading. 



The good thing is that I was able to get 6 more rows done. It's now at 102/580. That makes me feel good because I have finished the first 100 rows. The bird ...

Yet Another Quiet Day from Quilting My Way

Today started out with going out to pick blueberries. My bigger blueberries will be ready in the next couple weeks. They are about double the size of the ones I've already picked. 


I worked on my beading while working on the laundry as well. 


I am having so much fun getting this bird done. The tips of the other bird are starting to show on the hat. Not sure you can see it, but it's the gray/red area on the hat. Someone on Instagram asked me if the background was all one bead. The answer to that ...

Today turned out to be a good day. I was able to get laundry done and work on a few things as well. 


I was able to get a lot of beading done as well. 


My bird is getting done and another bird will be starting soon on the hat. I'm looking forward to see that bird come in. 

Then I was able to watch TV and get some stuff done on my cross stitching. 


I was able to get a lot done on this piece. I do like the way this is coming along.

Quilting At Moms from Quilting My Way

Today I was up and out the door to moms. I stopped and some something to drink. Then headed to moms. As I was leaving Starbucks I noticed I had  points that were expiring tomorrow. So, I sent Patrick a message and asked him what he wanted from Starbucks. 


We had a good day with the quilters. We chatted and got caught up on what everyone else was doing. I hadn't seen a few of them in awhile. It was fun to be with them. 


I worked on this part of the quilt. I had the foot done and ...

Running Around Town Today from Quilting My Way

This morning I was busy working on getting the deposit done for our water group. Then I was working on paying a couple bills. After that I wanted to leave and go around and do with I needed to get done today. Patrick wanted to go along and didn't want to leave right away. So, I gave him an hour. While he was working on the siding, I was beading. 


Then he came in and decided it was time to go. I got moving. Our first stop was the bank, then Phil's to get some package to mail ...

Time To Myself Today from Quilting My Way

It's not very often, but I was able to enjoy the morning to myself. Patrick went golfing with some friends of his. 


I was having fun having the day to myself! It was hard to think of all the things I wanted to do. So, I mopped the kitchen floor, vacuumed, and cleaned the cat litter. I was doing all that in between beading. I listened to my audio book, finishing one and starting another one. I seem to take up to 3 days on one audio book. 


I was able to get 6 more rows done. I'm ...

Bang Bang Bang from Quilting My Way

Today Patrick worked outside and I worked on my beading. I'm getting a lot done and going through books on tape really fast. 


While I was working on my beading, all we could hear was BANG, BANG, BANG. Then Patrick came into the house - when it was quiet - and asked me why I hadn't come out to see what all the noise was about. I told him, I figured he was working on something and he'd tell me what it was eventually. lol


He removed the siding (under the new siding) that was rotting. It was a ...

Kept Going All Day Long from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up at 7 am. I couldn't sleep at all last night. Patrick was having some trouble sleeping too. Maybe because it was so hot last night. I wanted to take a shower at 6:30 am but Patrick didn't like that idea, so went back to bed to see if I could try and sleep again.

After I showered, I went out and picked blueberries. Will probably give them to Phil. It also was a good day to put sheets out on the line. I was able to get a couple laundry loads done ...

The Day Started Out Good from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and playing games. Then Patrick asked if I wanted to go out for a bike ride. I told him I would rather walk then bike ride or just go for a ride. So, we headed up to Olympia to walk around the Capitol Lake area.


Got this photo half way around the walking area. We walked around the lake and it was 1.5 miles. It took up about 45 mins. We didn't walk very fast.


There were a lot of ducks and geese in the lake.

Came back at home by 1:30 ...

The Days Are Getting Hotter from Quilting My Way

This morning was the one day a week we can't use the computer, tablet or web. The only thing I can used the computer for is blogging or important email.

So, my day started out with working on my beading and getting some laundry going.


I was able to get another 5 rows in. I'm now at 64/580 done. I love the way the bird is starting to show. The hat is coming through. What fun!!

In between beading, we went to moms and dropped off some strawberries and cake. After dropping those off, we went to ...

Can't Seem To Keep The Day's Right from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed sleeping in. I really didn't want to get up, but I made myself get moving. Patrick stayed in bed another hour. 


I got moving on playing a few games. It helps me get moving sometimes. Then I got started getting the laundry going and then unloaded the dishwasher. I always hate it when Patrick opens the dishwasher and doesn't tell me about it. At least this time I figured it out before dirty dishes went in with the clean ones. 

It was time to enjoy beading again. 


I'm getting more stuff coming up ...

Getting Old! LOL from Quilting My Way

This morning I had to be up at 7:15 am. All because I have to take 2 pills with 30 mins between them and 30 minutes after before I can eat. Not my favorite way to start the day.

I was on my way to the dentist by 8:35 am. They cleaned my teeth and took photos. Not my favorite thing to do first thing in the morning but I like getting it over with. We no longer have insurance which means we pay cash and get a 15% discount. They cleaned my teeth so well, that I ...

Sending The Day With Family from Quilting My Way

Today was a day with family. My brother came over around 9 am. Both Patrick's went golfing. I worked on my family history - or Patrick's family. I was able to get a few more names on his tree.

Then around 1 pm both Patrick's arrived and right behind them was mom and Chris. We then played games and had BBQ. It was fun, till mom got tired. We really enjoyed each other's company.

Chris and I went to Napavine to take the beads for Sharon. Faye is going to take them to her, and bring back ...

Picking Berries and Beading from Quilting My Way

This morning I wasn't feeling all that great - still not. But I wasn't going to let that stop me. It did stop me from eating - not a bad thing there!

I was going to sit and bead, but realized I had a few things to do first. Laundry was needed to be done, so in went the laundry. Then I headed outside to pick blueberries. Patrick left for the dentist and I was outside picking berries. I was still picking them when he got back - over an hour later.


I was able to get 2 gallon bags filled ...

Enjoyed Time With Family from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and started beading. I couldn't play on the computer or tablet because it's Sunday and that's the agreement we had for one day a week off line.

I listened to my audio book and beaded. It was awesome.


I got another 3 1/2 rows done. I'm on 44/580. I'm in the middle of the row because we had to leave to go to moms. My brother and his wife are visiting till Thursday. We played games and I won one of the games. My sister-in-law Christine won the ...
