Bargains Aren’t Always Bargains from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

You may remember when I was complaining about losing all my tape measures and Vince ordered a dozen foreign tape measures. I said “I don’t want the ones made in China” and he said “Where do you think they’re all made?” He was right. The ones from China arrived today. The top one is right....

What Do I Do Next? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve kinda been knitting like a crazy woman. You’ll notice over on the sidebar that in less than two months, I’ve finished two pairs of socks, two rather large shawls, one just less than 1,000 yards and one over 1,000 yards, and a hooded cardigan. The second shawl isn’t listed so you probably didn’t notice...

Happy About Getting Old from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Just a few more days and I can apply for Medicare! Who would have thought I’d ever be so happy to turn 65? By the time Medicare starts, I will have paid 12 months of about $1,000 per month for health care, with really not so great coverage so that makes Medicare look pretty good....

Mars vs. Venus from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Later . . Vince: It’s Presidents’ Day. Is everything closed?Me: Not...

More to the Chicken Story from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince and I hadn’t been married long. Chad was 9 and I’ve always said that if Vince and brought a child into the marriage that acted like Chad did, I doubt we’d still be married. One day Chad came running into the house, almost hyperventilating. He said “Vince is trying to kill me. He’s going...

Thanks to Those Who Shared from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

A reader commented on a recent knitting post that for years, she didn’t know there was but one way to cast off. So many of us have probably had that same experience or . . lack of experience. I’ve told this story on here . . probably many times. But, for anyone who hasn’t read...

A White Dove from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince just went down to open the gate so the mail lady would bring packages that are being delivered today. He came back and said “A white dove flew right in front of me!” It was, as it usually is, a pair. One was solid white and one was mostly white. I’ve never seen a...

Another Day in my Life from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Is this two days in a row that I’ve had kinda weird days or was there a day in between? I can’t remember but this has been such a crazy day. We haven’t been eating breakfast on the diet but I was going to get a haircut and then going to maybe Hobby Lobby and...

In my Hands! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The package is here and it doesn’t look damaged at all. The contents are fine. What should have taken 3, maybe 5 days counting weekends to get here from FL took 21 days to get here. I kinda feel like I’m not going to have anything to blog about now!

The Package Update from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Bless that little package! I may be home today! Our other packages say “out for delivery” and this one doesn’t so I called the local post office. Honestly, those people there can’t really be postal employees. They’re all so nice. Nine times out of ten when I call, I get the same person and I...

A Day in My Life from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’m not the most organized person. In fact, I’m probably the least organized person I know. There are several reasons for my total lack of organization but the one I blame the most is that when someone is coming over, I put things “out of sight” and that might mean sticking a bag of yarn...

Package is Making Progress from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Let’s not get too excited but the package has really left Florida and is in Texas. It could still turn and head back to Florida but Lubbock is where our packages go, then to Abilene and then here. If all things work the way they should work, this package should leave Lubbock fairly early today, arrive...

Monday Package Summary from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yet again, at 9:53 p.m., the package has left Tallahassee. Because this is truly getting funny, in a sad way, I’m going to do one daily update for the travels (or not) that my package is taking. Between yesterday and today, it left Tallahassee FOUR times . . never arrived anywhere . . just departed....

Package is on the Move from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

According to the post office, my package has been moved. But . . it hasn’t. Last time I wrote, it supposedly left Tallahassee at 6:20 p.m. Now I get this! So, 2.5 hours after leaving Tallahassee, it has now left Tallahassee again. That’s three times it’s left Tallahassee in two days and at least two...

Where’s My Package? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I doubt I ever see this package. Thank goodness it’s just two skeins of yarn and not a whole bunch of skeins. I’ve filed the appropriate “Where’s my package?” forms online with the post office. Even our local post office got a copy and they called me but this certainly isn’t their fault. This package...

Everything is Relative from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Vince sent me this article this morning. This is truly worth the read. I told Vince it’s something we should start our day off reading every morning. The story about the fisherman and the investment banker is so true. I wonder how many people today retire or get near retirement age and look back, see...

Vince and the Safety Pin from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Poor Vince. He cannot find a safety pin. We had a whole big container of them and several years ago, he took them out to pin sheets over some of the fruit trees before a freeze and I never saw them again. I know I should have safety pins handy and in my purse and...

Dinner Tonight from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I must have been hungry. I forgot to take a picture. I made Blue Cheese Pork Medallions and roasted cauliflower. That was so delicious! The blue cheese sauce wasn’t horribly blue cheesy and I put more in than the recipe called for. It’s just heavy cream and blue cheese crumbles. I think it would be...

Crazy Dreams from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I’ve always said I don’t dream but people tell me that we all dream . . some of us don’t remember our dreams. I’ve had two crazy dreams this week that I remembered. The first one . . I dreamed there was a worm on the bedroom ceiling. It was so real! I could see...

Diet Tools from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

As I’ve mentioned before, this truly is the easiest diet for me to follow and stick with . . aside from the much desired Dr. Pepper, which probably no diet is going to allow. Carb Manager is an app I use and it makes everything so much easier. I put in how much weight I...
