Home! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As much as I miss the family, it feels good to be home . . in my chair with my feel propped up. About half my bags are unpacked.  Rita was definitely happy to see me. It was sad walking in without being greeted by Speck. I did go out to where he is buried...

Communications With Vince from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince is not much of a talker under good circumstances. He says it’s because he never has a chance to talk because I’m always talking. Maybe . . or maybe not.  He has an iPhone that’s his work phone. We both have Samsung phones for our personal phones. His has unlimited data. Mine does not....

Explanation for the Red Tags from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This is a very poor community, for the most part. There are a lot of houses that are old and not well maintained and the residents seem to have little pride. It’s a very old community and there are pockets of nicer, newer homes, or even older homes that are maintained but it’s definitely hit...

The Red Tag Man from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It doesn’t take being in this town long to realize I could never live in the city limits again. The red tag man has been busy. They are everywhere. Yesterday when I got to town, I went straight to Addie’s day care to pick her up. The house just on the opposite corner from the...

Good Morning, World from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

With the time change, I have to get up earlier to catch the sunrise. This photo isn’t the sunrise reflecting on the water but it’s someone’s light but it’s still very pretty with the clouds quickly passing by. As I stepped outside, I could hear music from a local church. So much bad news, so...

Thought I Saw A Gator from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday morning in was out enjoying the peace and quiet and the view. A blue heron had just landed across the bayou and I was trying to get a picture. I never could get a good picture of the blue heron but then I looked down the bayou and saw what I thought was an...

Clouds from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It seems to be this way with quite a few things — i don’t miss them til i no longer have them. I guess that proves the old saying “You dont miss the water til the well runs dry” is true. When I lived here for so many years, I dreaded the rainy days. In...

Another Screw Up from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Not only did I leave most of my clothes at home but I just went to plug in the computer and I brought along the cord to a different computer so . . if you don’t hear from me for a while, you’ll know my computer is “resting”. I didn’t even realize the cord to...

Seems Almost Like a Normal Day from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m staying busy and trying to help around here. Last night, I had to laugh . . it almost seems like a normal day for me. Last night almost everyone had gone to bed and I was sitting, hoping to get a bit of knitting done, and had a chihuahua on my lap. You can’t...

Rain from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I love rain. I love thunder when not accompanied by tornadoes. If I could change one thing about our current location . . ok two things because the first thing will always be that Chad, Nicole and Addie would be closer but other than that, the one thing would be that we would get rain....

Ginger Snaps and Vanilla Wafers from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

How ordinary can a cookie be . . vanilla wafers or ginger snaps. You may be thinking ordinary until you’ve had Slaton Bakery‘s vanilla wafers or ginger snaps. One day I was in the checkout line at United and I hadn’t even noticed the display right by the checkout. The lady behind me . ....

Sorry, Wrong House! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This morning I had to be at the dentist at 9:30.  You may remember that our next closest neighbor, and friends, had a house fire going on two years ago and their new house is being built. They’ve lived several places but not too long ago, they rented a house in town. She told me...

Frozen Dinner from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

While some, maybe most, frozen dinners are not my favorites, I like keeping on or two in the freezer for those days when I want one. Most days, even if I’m not cooking, there’s something homemade in the freezer, leftovers in the fridge or I’m pretty happy with a tuna salad sandwich but every now...

For Real? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We saw this while on the road yesterday. Is that really the police? All I can say is . . if ever I get arrested, I hope the officer is driving one of these and that’s what I get to ride on to jail. I don’t plan on ever getting arrested but that is the...

Almost a Banana Split from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We had bananas. I could have made this a banana split.  We had a couple of pineapples and one appeared to be ready to cut. As I was cutting it up, Vince said “We can eat some with ice cream!” Yes! We can! Then I decided to put some of the Aldi chocolate sauce on...

The Discarded Red Jacket from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

When Chad was in school, Abercrombie & Fitch was the in place for kids to shop. I never had the money to buy many of Chad’s clothes there and something deep within me is so opposed to being hung up on brand names so I never encouraged that kind of spending. I’m not sure how...

Tooth Update from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Here’s where the crazy blogger lady story bubbles to the surface. My imagination can definitely run away with me. When the endodontist x-rayed the tooth before the first root canal, he said the roots were very close to the cheekbone but it wasn’t going to be a problem. The more I thought about the tooth...

Irresponsible Parenting from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

That would be us! We are so careful with our dogs since Rita can’t see and Speck can’t hear. I know half of our county hears me out yelling for Speck. I do let him out without a leash because I’m usually having to shoo him off the porch to do his business. He doesn’t...

Temperature Swings from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

One thing about living here that still surprises me is the temperature swings. It’s nothing to have a 50 or 60 degree swing over a 48 or even a 24 hour period. Thursday’s high will be 85° and Friday’s low will be 31° and windy. AC on Thursday, heater on Friday . . unless I...

The Tooth from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Some of you, probably all of you, are sick of hearing about my tooth. Hopefully this is the last time you will hear about that tooth.  It all started, as far as I remember, back in March of 2016 when my dentist, who was my dentist because the dentist I liked a lot was in the...
