A Cut Finger from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This morning I cut my finger. It’s really a tiny cut but I saw blood and that should be enough for me not to have to do anything I don’t want to do for at least a day, right? As Vince was taking the oven apart, he wanted me to clean some of the parts...

One Pot Meals from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Do you love one pot meals? I used to not like them so much but now, I love them, especially when there are lots of flavors mingled together. Late last week I smoked a big brisket, then divided it into four chunks, vacuum sealed three of those and froze them. Over the weekend, I was...

A Vest for Addie from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You may remember that last year I was in Hobby Lobby and saw the cutest sample vest that was made from some “hide” looking fabric with a fleecy type underside. I wrote this post about it. The fabric they had was kind of sparkly and I knew Addie would love it but they were out...

Tuesday, Right? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I never know the day of the week. It doesn’t matter but yet I feel like I should at least be able to say “Tuesday” when Vince asks “What day is today?” For a few days, I’d look at my phone first thing every morning and say to myself “Today is Tuesday” so all day,...

Hair Bows from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today may be the day I attempt to make hair bows. This is the latest and last of the hair bow ribbons I’ve bought. Lion King. JoJo, Chickens and glittery stripes. I’m sure the first ones will be a bit beginner looking but I found a place that had 5 yards of these ribbons for...

Jason’s Deli from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Monday I had a doctor’s appointment in Abilene so Vince and I went over there and planned to eat at Panda Express. They open at 10:30 a.m. and if you don’t get there before 11:00, there’s usually a long line. We got there about 10:40, walked in and only about two bowls had food in...

Chocolate from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Sometimes I wonder if Vince ever listens to anything I say and then I remember . . no . . he does not! Last night . . Vince: Do you want half a chocolate bar with hazelnuts?Me: NO! (Because who doesn’t know that I do not like chocolate?)Vince: You don’t like hazelnuts?Me: I don’t like...

Can The Heat Be Over? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As I’ve mentioned before, the summer heat hasn’t been the worst this year. The grasshoppers were bad but I don’t see too much they’ve eaten . . like window screens, webbing on lawn furniture, etc. Look at that! After tomorrow, our temps start going down and by the end of September, our highs are going...

Blog Update from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Some of you have been writing me about issues with the blog. I’m sorry to say that I know absolutely nothing about working on the framework and theme of WordPress blogs and sometimes, just typing a blog post with photos seems overwhelming. Yes, I’ve turned into my grandmother. I’ve talked to a new developer who...

Ribbon Collecting from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

One thing you can say for me . . when I do something, I jump right in with both feet and don’t stop til I’ve passed the point of obsession. Denise is getting 100% of the blame for these packages of ribbons that keep arriving, and for the amount of time I’ve sent online looking...

Dentist from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I have an 8 a.m. dentist appointment to get the permanent crown. When the lady made the appointment, she said “Can you be here at 8:30?” I said “Sure!” She looked at me funny and sheepishly said “How about 8:00?” I said “I can be here whenever you want me here.” She seemed surprised but...

Starting to Feel Like Fall from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It will be a while before we have cold weather but the days are getting shorter. I love he shorter days. We’re in the house and settled down way earlier than we are in June and July. Sitting in my chair knitting, almost 8 p.m. and it’s not going to be long til dark. Vince...

The Point of No Return from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Thoughts from Frank and Fern is a blog I read. I like their writing. I like their thinking. I like the way they live their lives – as self sufficiently as possible, living off the land, trying to be good people. They have a post today that kinda ties in with how I’ve been thinking...

Santa Granny from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince calls me “Santa Granny” because I always have things to take to Addie. When I get there, she’s more interested in going through my car than she is seeing me but once she sees what I’ve brought her, she’s happy I’m there so I can live with that. Mostly, I bring her fairly worthless...

Clothespins for Art from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Before school started, I was wasting time on Pinterest looking for gifts Addie and I could make for her teacher and I found these cute little clothespins for teachers to hang students’ artwork. I thought they were so cute and found the for sale at several different places but most of the reviews said the...

Poor Vince! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince is in the kitchen trying to clean the second Jackfruit. He has something else going on that is kinda important. It should be easily solved with one email but it’s taking forever. The first email had something that needs to be changed. His hands are horribly sticky so every time his phone beeps, he...

Those Shots! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Those two shots (flu and pneumonia) yesterday had me swearing this morning that I’d never take another flu or pneumonia shot. I felt so bad. Vince felt bad too and he had only the flu shot so I can’t say which one made me feel worse but about noon, I told myself “I am never...

All Things Change from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today I’ve been thinking. I’m sounding like Vince. He thinks all the time. Me . . not so much! I’m more of a doer and less of a thinker. I usually think after I’ve “done”, which often gets me in trouble – especially when the credit card bill arrives!

Flu & Pneumonia Vaccine from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today Vince and I went to deliver eggs, then to United to get a few groceries for the week, then home. Two stops. I can do that! While I was buying groceries, Vince wandered over to the pharmacy because we had been at CVS the other day and the pharmacist asked if we wanted our...
