Snowed All Day from Quilting My Way

This morning we woke to more snow. The sun came out and it was an awesome day. It was so pretty with all that white snow.  Never occurred to me to take a photo.  Patrick went to the store for milk and bread.

I got laundry going. Cleaned up the laundry room because of the dirt on the floor.  The I scrubbed the floor under the refrigerator because every time I I opened the freezer I saw dirt in the cracks of the floor.

Then I decided to work on my beading today.


First I worked on the seed bead ...

Started The Day Being Lazy....Then It Took Off from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed being able to sleep in. I really didn't want to get up. Once I did, I just played some games. Kept thinking of what I needed to do, but just didn't feel like it.

I finally got moving! I went downstairs and heated up the room. Then I got my stuff together. I wanted to work on the quilt top I had started before.


I didn't get as much done as I would have liked. I think I added two rows and then I was the mess on the table and by the ...

A Good Day Of Sewing from Quilting My Way

Today we didn't have plans - other than bowling.

Of course Patrick didn't like my stacks in the computer room, so I cleaned up my pile of genealogy and put them away Then I was about to go back downstairs to sew when I remembered we were going to move a few of my plants downstairs because of Sophie. She love my plants. So, I took a plant downstairs, and before I knew it, we were cleaning up the blue room.

In between cleaning, I asked Patrick to help me get a photo of the quilt that's going ...

Have You Had A Day Of Not Finding Things? I DID from Quilting My Way

This morning I enjoyed the chance to sleep in. Trouble was, I couldn't sleep in. Sophie came charging into the room and meowing at me. Guess she expected me to get up.

I got moving on getting the kitchen floor mopped. Sophie had to watch me sweep and mop the floor. Guess she saw something to go after. Who knows. About that time mom called. She wanted to know what I was going to do today. Told her I was going to work on that box I have downstairs. She said she wanted to come over and cut out ...

A Day Of Cleaning....UGH from Quilting My Way

This morning started out like any other day. I got up....Then the day started.

Patrick got up and asked what I wanted to do - go figure! I'm not used to being asked what I wanted to do or what I want to watch on TV....so, I said, of the choices I had, that we needed to go shopping. And that's what we did. We went grocery shopping.

Came home and unloaded the groceries. We had a small amount compared to usual.

Once all that was done, it was time to clean!


This was just after I ...

Most Of The Family Left Today from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early to see my nephew and his family off. They were heading over to moms and then to the airport. I told them I'd meet them over at moms. My brother and his wife were leaving today as well as my other nephew and his daughter.

I arrived at moms around 9 am. I wanted to chat with my older brother before he left. We had a good walk with Daisy - mom was at PT - and we chatted. It was good to get a few things off my chest. I stayed about an hour ...

A Day Of Organizing! from Quilting My Way

When I mean organizing - that's what I did. I really got myself busy with organizing the genealogy papers. What a mess.

I worked all day getting my files to work like the way I wanted them to at work. This way it will be easier to find what I wanted and to file my stuff. I used to have them organized by the documents that I have. Then I decided that wasn't working because they were getting mixed up. So, I am now filing them by name. I still have a pile of files that I need to ...

Another Tuesday Bites The Dust..... from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up early. I had to be up by 8 am when Sandy stopped by. She brought me some of her chicken eggs. She has chickens and has a hard time giving her eggs away. So, I told her I would take some and so did Cherrill. I was still in my pj's when she came. lol

After she left, I took some eggs to Cherrill. We chatted about our genealogy. She was asking how ancestry works. I'm amazed that she doesn't know much about ancestry, but she's done about 3 books on ...

Even Though It Doesn't Look Like It........ from Quilting My Way

That's right, even though it doesn't look like it, I actually got some stuff done. I cleaned up my room, and I worked on a few things. It doesn't look like a lot, but it feels like a lot.

This morning I was up and went over to chat with Cherrill. We hadn't chatting in awhile, so I spent a good 2 hours over there. She loves to talk and we had things to talk about.

Came home around 11 am. Had to fold my laundry - those awful white clothes (hate folding those!). I was enjoying ...

Got My Computer Back!! from Quilting My Way

Yep, got my computer back!! I'm so happy to see this thing!! It's working great so far. The only thing I'm not crazy about is that firefox was installed on here. Guess I can live with that. I don't want to mess things up, so will live with it for now.

I didn't do much today. I did clean out my bathroom cabinet. I throw out a lot of stuff! I couldn't believe all the stuff we had that was so OLD. It's a smart thing to clean out the cabinets more often ...

It Turned Out To Be A Good Day from Quilting My Way

Today was a good day after all. It started out with laundry, vacuuming, and mopping the kitchen floor. I needed to get the floors cleaned and my back would let me do it.

I then spent the afternoon working on the cross stitch. I did put a few pieces in on the puzzle as well.


I didn't get much done today, because I was busy working on my cross stitching.


I'm loving the way this is coming out. It's a lot prettier than I thought it would be. It's coming along great. 

After Patrick got home ...

It Was A "My Day" Day from Quilting My Way

Yep, today was my day! I got up when I felt like it, I did what I felt like. It was awesome!

It started out with a visit with Cherrill. That was about an hour. We talked about this and that. I came back home and started working on vacuuming, laundry (which got started but never did get finished), as well as a few other things.

After that got started, I turned the fireplace on downstairs. Yep, the fireplace was on!


It poured rain for a good hour. It was cold out side for awhile, so the fireplace was nice ...

Spent The Morning With Mom from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and out the door to see mom. She asked me yesterday if I would come over, so I decided I would.

Stopped and got both of us a Vanilla Chai tea. Then headed to moms. Got there to find her deep in the kitchen pantry cleaning it out.


I helped mom pull out all her stuff. It was packed! We got it down to this. I had to scrub all the shelves, and even try to get the spills off the walls. Bleach works great - on most stuff. I didn't get a chance to ...

Each Day At A Time - With Stitching from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up and over to moms by 10 am. We went to Olympia to see dad. He responded to us. But he's still not out of the woods. We were happy with what we saw. It is a good think. It's a small hope, but we still are expecting the worst, hoping for the best.

Came home and had lunch with mom. She started cleaning dad's things that came from Mother Joseph's. I went home.

Got home and went downstairs to start going through the box.


I walked downstairs and realized I have ...

A Day At Home from Quilting My Way

We decided to take today off. We all wanted to stay home and go back to the hospital tomorrow. Mom needed a break and so did we.

I got a little caught up on my cleaning. I washed several loads of laundry - amazing how much laundry one has after a week of being away from home. Then I mopped the floor and vacuumed. It really needed it. At first I wonder why there was so much dirt, but then I realized, we came home and left for a week. So, whatever we had on our shoes came in the house ...

Another Snow Day... from Quilting My Way

Today was waking up to snow. It was snowing all morning. I went to see Cherrill this morning and it wasn't really bad. Then on the way home it was about an inch on the ground. Was watching it fall while having tea with Cherrill. 



I spent the day going through all the Water Company's 40 years of records. It was time to get rid of the old checks, statements, etc. So, the box on the left is all the pages I need to shred and the box to the right is how much I now have in ...

A Week And A Half Overdue!! from Quilting My Way

Today I was sleeping in. Have a cold coming on and wasn't in the mood to get up on time. Called Cherrill and told her I didn't want to share my cold. Then I decided I needed to get moving.

Walked into the living room and had that "ugh" feeling. You know, that feeling of, "this place looks like crap!" Piles of stuff on the coffee table, piles on the table, and the floor looks like it's growing dirt. It has been a week and a half since I did any cleaning.....just haven't been home ...

Getting Closer To Having Another Finish in 2017 from Quilting My Way

When I got up this morning and was getting ready to go to Cherrill's - I dropped my earring down the sink!! My first thought was, "Is it really going to be another one of those days?!"

I did visit Cherrill and got her all set up. We chatted awhile. She was having trouble with her heater unit. It is actually only a couple months old. She wasn't getting heat, but cold air in her house. It was chilly and I kept my coat on. She was supposed to have it fixed this afternoon.

Came home and opened the ...

Okay, Think I'm Done With Cleaning! from Quilting My Way

This morning I got a call from Cherry that she didn't need me. So, I heated up the downstairs and went down to clean.....


This is were I started today. I cleaned out the cabinets on the other side of this counter. I really didn't want to but I did. I know I needed to and I was hoping among hope that there wasn't another project in there I completely forgot about. The good news is that there wasn't, but there was my basket blocks, and a quilt pattern with all the fabrics that I want ...

It Was A MY Day! from Quilting My Way

This morning I was up a little later than usual. I behaved by not playing games and going to Cherrills before 9 am. I stayed and had tea with her. I came home at 10:30 am and couldn't believe it!! I try not to be there longer than an hour, but it was almost 2 hours! I couldn't believe I wasted that much time talking!! I don't chat that much!

Once I got home, I went downstairs and turned the fireplace on. Then I got started on my cleaning!


I re-organized the quilt tops. The ones ...
