The Stay At Home Report from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Last week I think we did great at staying home. You may remember that we went out on Monday because I had ordered jars and then they didn’t have them but I had added a few other things to my order so we had to go pick those things up. I went in and found...

This is Why I Stay Home from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Sunday night I noticed in an ad that a local store had Ball pint jars marked down so I ordered some and was going to do curbside pickup yesterday. There were a couple of other things we were getting low on so I figured I’d just add them to the list and pick it all...

An Old Blog Post from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Last night I was looking for old pictures of Speck and came across this blog post. It was so funny but maybe you had to be there. This was in October, 2011, five months after the Joplin tornado and five months after we had moved to Texas. Friday I decided to go to the library...

A Walmart Delivery from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I had placed an order with Walmart a few days ago. It was something that wasn’t in our store and was going to be shipped. With WM+, the shipping is free so I didn’t mind. It was several of the same item and it came to about 15 pounds. Last night, just before I started...

Kidney Stone Free from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday I saw the urologist. I had to have some kind of scan first and when I went in to see him, he said “Congratulations! We don’t see any stones!” After lithotripsy, it has taken 8 to 9 years for me to need it again so I’m hopeful if I drink lemon juice or apple...

Power Out Last Night from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This is so weird. I don’t know if I’m weird (no response needed!) <G> of if weird things happen to me or if I notice weird things and report on them but . . last night, 9:37 to be exact, I went out with Oscar. He had already done his major “business” outside about 7...

Morning Kitchen Activities from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This morning I got the buckwheat milled before the radon man arrived. In fact, I got breakfast cooked and served and Vince was almost finished eating by the time he arrived. I’m not sure Vince liked the buckwheat pancakes. He won’t usually say anything at the time but later he may say “I like regular...

The Personal Journal from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I always wish I had taken a picture of my weekly journal pages before I start writing because my writing isn’t what I want to share or what anyone would want to read. There are three sections for each page. Often the last two sections of each day are like morning pages where I think...

Lithotripsy from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today was at least the 6th time I’ve had lithotripsy. After the last two times, I didn’t have a kidney stone for 8 or 9 years so I’m hoping the same thing happens this time. We had to be at the hospital at 5:30, which means we had to leave the house about 4:50, which...

Friday Discipline Report – Week 1 from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There’s no doubt no one cares about my “Discipline Report” but I’m posting these to help keep myself accountable. First and foremost for me is that I ordered no cross stitching charts, no linen, no bags. I did purchase a few skeins of DMC at Hobby Lobby – only skeins that I needed. I took...

An Interesting Quote from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I was watching a youtube video this evening and this quote was shared: I would rather have questions that can’t be answered than answers that can’t be questioned. Richard Feynman (1918-1988) Richard Feynman was a theoretical physicist and I have no further comment on the quote – just thought it was interesting and something I...

Discipline Pays Off from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Monday when I made myself sit down and sort out that floss . . it paid off. I found the floss for Love is the Key. I don’t know why I put it in that tub. Floss only goes in there when I’m finished with a project and I was not finished with that project!...

Busy Tuesday from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Here it is 6 p.m. and I had to check my phone to see what day of the week it is. I thought it was Tuesday but surely didn’t want to put Tuesday in the title if that isn’t right! We’ve both been busy this entire day. The first thing I did was chop the...

Almost Ready for New Year’s Eve from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It’s funny – for so many of my younger years, New Year’s Eve was all about the party. Now it’s all about staying home and trying to keep Vince awake til midnight. Something else that’s funny . . he always says at 11:00, he’s celebrating and going to bed because at 11:00 our time, it’s...

2023 Word of the Year from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

My word for 2022 was mindful. I tried! I tried to pay attention to what I was doing, where my thoughts were going, and I’m fairly confident I’m more mindful that I was at the end of 2021 but not nearly as mindful as I need to be so I’ll continue to work on that....

Christmas Eve from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Christmas packages are wrapped and under the tree. The packages look a bit sparse. We’re giving money to Chad, Nicole and Addie but I wanted them to have something under the tree. I ordered Chad bread bags and plastic shower caps to put over his bread when it’s rising. We gave him the beef shanks...

It’s A Beautiful Day from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It is so pretty outside. The sun is shining and the snow is glistening. For the most part, it hasn’t thawed and turned into ice and it’s still powdery and fluffy where it hasn’t been shoveled. I can hear snow shovels scraping driveways and walkways all over the neighborhood. Currently it’s 10 degrees and feels...

Feast of the Seven Fishes from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m pretty excited to make our dishes for the Feast of the Seven Fishes. I did change what I’m going to do with the shrimp. I have a shrimp dip recipe and I wanted to make that for tomorrow so I’m going to make it today, Vince and I will have that as an appetizer...

Oscar and the Snow from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Oscar was so funny out in the snow this morning. Every step he took, he grabbed a bite of it so he was running along scooping it up in his mouth as he ran. It was funny to watch. Our morning trips outside are always quick because he wants to get back in and eat....
