Selfie from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You know that I’m not one who enjoys taking pictures of myself or having my picture taken so you don’t often see photos of me. I was telling my friend that I haven’t had a hair cut since February. I’ve always had bangs and they’ve grown out. I did have Vince cut the back of...

Police Officer Appreciation from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Reminder: This is NOT political so please don’t make it so! I am so sad that some (and probably not that many but very vocal ones) seem to want to do harm to police officers and can’t appreciate that they’re who we call when we need help and they leave their families behind and put...

Flashlight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Sorry that I ripped open the flashlight and the packaging is a mess. If I had known how neat this flashlight was, I would have taken a picture first or been more careful about opening it. Men probably like big, he-man size flashlights, but I think this is a super flashlight and was thinking Chad...

Sleep Deprived from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It’s a good thing I don’t need a lot of sleep. Last night I went to bed a little after midnight. I’m a night owl and my preferred schedule would be to stay up til about 2 a.m., then sleep til about 8 a.m. but I need to be up by 6 so I try...

Lights Out from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I think we have a bit of a . . what’s the word . . I don’t want to sound unappreciative but, our electricity seems to go out often. Most of the time, it’s for 10 minutes or less. We’ve been going back and forth for over two months now and I don’t think there’s...

Mouth Wash from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday I read that there had been some study that simple OTC mouth wash may help you not get Covid-19. I’m not giving medical advice and I’m quite sure by this time next week, this theory will have been debunked but I figured . . what the heck . . I’ll try anything. Except ....

Cold is Relative from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You all know I grew up in southwest Louisiana, not far at all from the Gulf so we never had much cold. We would go entire winters without a freeze. We could grow citrus trees . . my dad still has citrus trees . . if the hurricanes didn’t kill them. Vince and I got...

Spinning Wheels from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I have resisted sitting down at the spinning wheels. I told myself that once the boxes in the food storage room are unpacked, I can sit and spin for a while. Those boxes are not unpacked yet but the day is still young! I think that’s exhibiting quite a bit of self-control. The spinning wheels...

Planning Around the Weather from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I hope the folks at Accuweather know that my plans are in their hands! I look at Accuweather out for days in advance and plan everything from my grocery shopping to taking food out to the compost bin (which is about 20 steps from my door) based on what they say our weather is going...

A Beautiful Morning from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I suppose Missouri isn’t the prettiest state in the U. S. but I’m only saying that because someone who lives somewhere else will say it for me if I don’t say it, but when you’re living where you want to be living, and where you’ve wanted to live for so long . . it’s a...

Ten Box Rule from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

My goal is unpacking 10 boxes per day, though once I get started, I usually do more. I did 17 today – all jars of home canned food. That’s a pain because I have to take the quart jars out of their own little box, then take their little box out of the big box,...

Saturday’s Unpacking from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I feel like I got a lot done today. So much had been piled on the dining room table but that’s all cleaned off now. Addie wanted to play Clue this morning. I told her to let me get all the boxes in the dining room unpacked and we’d play two games, then I’d get...

Fall Saturday Morning from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I have a visitor for the weekend. It isn’t even winter yet and she thinks my house is too cold. She actually slept in her jacket and was wrapped up in a fuzzy blanket. I asked her if she got hot during the night and she said no. This bread is made with 25% kamut....

Packing Materials from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Who needs packing materials when you can use hand knitted socks? Opening that box made me chuckle.

Orange Cream Whole Milk from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today I ran in Walmart to get a few things, one of which was milk. I noticed this: I put a little (a couple of times) in a glass, stuck it in the freezer for a while and that stuff is so good. I didn’t read the nutritional information so if you have and if...

Be a Light from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

First, this post is not meant to be political – it has totally and absolutely nothing to do with politics so please . . PLEASE . . do not make it about politics! I can remember two times before today when I heard a song on the radio that just stopped me in my tracks....

Chad and His Chickens from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

One of Chad’s hens, Ethel or Lucy, is actually a rooster. They had suspected that for a couple of weeks. The name has been changed to Fred. He is not a nice rooster. Thank goodness, he doesn’t have spurs yet but he goes after Nicole every chance he gets and he pecked her leg and...

Maybe He’s Not So Nice from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A couple of days ago the forecast for here said it was going to be 35 tonight. Just to be safe, I took the hoses off the faucets. I knew the outside faucets were all the freeze proof kind but I thought maybe there were other things we should do. You know . . each...

It’s a Disaster! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I really do feel bad for Vince. He has worked his butt off. The movers were totally impressed with his packing. They were probably equally impressed with my packing but failed to mention that!
