Vince’s Request from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince sent me an email with a recipe he would like for me to make. Here’s the subject line: This afternoon, he said “Are you cooking dinner?” I said . . you only have one hour left. If I can get it made, and get the kitchen cleaned up in one hour, I’ll do it....

A Picture Frame from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I almost forgot the best bargain I found at Aldi! This picture frame . . This is a picture frame for a 5 x 7 photo, along with a clock. Nicole just ordered Addie’s school pictures. I now have a perfect frame for a 5 x 7 Addie kindergarten photo. The frame was in that...

Stargazing Shawl Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You can’t tell much about the shawl all bunched up on the needles but here it is so far. I’m just getting into the light green and next comes a bit of white-ish and then pink. My goal tonight is to get to the pink. The pattern is Stargazing Shawl by Anna Victoria. The yarn...

The Green Tablet is Done! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m trying not to be frustrated! My Samsung tablet is 4 years old and I love it but the battery is not holding a charge. I pretty much have to use it plugged in. About the only time I use it is in bed at night but it is was my favorite tablet. Vince decided...

Fig Leaves . . Not Grape Leaves from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A blog reader told me she would send me her stuffed grape leaves recipe and as we were on our way to town this morning, I received her email with the recipe. Of course, I wanted to make them NOW. I kinda expected that I would be using fresh grape leaves but the recipe calls...

Trivia For Old Folks from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today Vince and I made three trips to town . . all three because of me. First, I wanted to make the fermented pickles and kimchi. But while we were out we grabbed lunch, went to the veggie market, went to United, then to Aldi, then to Sears, then to Tractor Supply, then to Big...

The Ham from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday Vince decided to do something with the aging ham! I guess he was tired of my constant complaining. I know it’s petty and he could be doing a whole lot worse but every time I opened that fridge, it aggravated me. It was past time to do something with it or get rid of...

Chromebook – Day 3 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There’s definitely a period of adjustment when going from the traditional Windows based notebook to a Chromebook. About mid-day on Day #1, I was so tempted to grab my laptop back and save the Chromebook for a travel notebook. I said “I am not going to be that person who will not at least try...

A Good Guesser from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Is Vince a good guesser or can he read my mind? Sometimes I wonder! Vince doesn’t even know I keep a list of what I’ve freeze dried. He doesn’t read my blog unless he’s looking for something.       This morning at breakfast, I said “Guess how many loads I’ve taken out of the...

Soup from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

My lazy girl/clean out the freezer soup turned out delicious. The plan was to add barley but before I had time to add it, Vince said “Let’s eat!” so we ate and then I added barley to the leftovers. During winter, and I know we have a long time before winter is here but a...

The Chrome Book from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m feeling like a granny! The Chrome Book arrived yesterday. I want to get used to it. I love the size and weight. I got a 14″ so it isn’t as tiny as some Vince has. I’m used to having a numbers pad on my notebooks and this one doesn’t have it. I could have...

Doing What He Loves from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You know how Vince can sniff out a bargain. I’ve never seen anyone who can find bargains like he does. Here’s our receipt from the grocery store yesterday. We spent $81.47 and saved $75.45. Sweet onions were on sale so I bought some of those to freeze dry. We love those things! But the big...

The Cost of Living from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As Vince and I mull over whether we really want to buy another house . . putting the numbers on paper and seeing the actual cost kinda makes me want to back away from that idea. Remember . . this is all in MO and the cost of living is way less there than somewhere...

Wrong Answer from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Poor Vince. He always says the wrong thing. We were watching a movie tonight and this married guy was thinking about picking up a prostitute. Me: You would never do that, would you? Vince: Heck, no! It’s too expensive. What? Wouldn’t you not do it because you love me and you would never even think...

The Computer Again from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince can fix any computer so long as it’s fixable. A “working” computer seems to mean different things to different people. Vince is no fan of Windows. He like Linux and Chromebook. I finally gave up the fight and ordered a Chromebook. Vince has several different ones so he gave me three to try. None...

A Tiny Little RV from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This morning Vince and I were in town and a little ways from us in the parking lot was a man sitting in a pickup with the cutest little camper. I said to Vince “Oh, look at that cute little camper! We might want one of those.” We don’t . . he won’t pull anything...

Bacon Flavored Coffee from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You all know how much I love Aldi and you know how much I love bacon so I shouldn’t pass judgment on something I haven’t tried yet but . . Maple bacon coffee?? I don’t think so. I’m not a coffee drinker so maybe I’m wrong about it. I’m not even sure about the Maple...

Unicorn Bandaids from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m always on the lookout for little trinkets and inexpensive happy gifts I can send Addie. When we were in Abilene last week and stopped by T. J. Maxx, I found this tin of bandaids for Addie. I was looking at hand lotions and just happened to notice the bandaids, or . . as the...

Changing How We Think from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday Vince was talking to a friend on the phone and maybe it’s a man thing but, from my hearing of the conversation, it sounded like the world was coming to an end. I could hear part of the other side of the conversation and it was kinda the same way. When they hung up,...

Whataburger Sausage from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Whataburger is such a big deal in Texas. I’m not sure I understand why. We used to go to the one here but haven’t been in at least a year. We were in the grocery store yesterday and I noticed this. It may or may not be new . . I never noticed it before...
