A Rant, OK? from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There were several comments about the food truck incident today suggesting I contact the manager and let them know what happened. There were several comments yesterday to contact the county roads department or whomever put the “Impassable During High Water” sign out on our road. I’m not angry or upset about the comments; probably a...

Turkeys at the Hospital from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

This morning was my annual mammogram except it’s been a bit longer than a year since the last one because of Covid. The hospital here has a long corridor . . probably where they’ve added another building to an older building. There’s a solid glass wall with a very long atrium type area with buildings...

Online Libraries from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

When we lived in Texas we were able to access the Houston Public Library as well as our local library through the Libby app. There are books that can be “checked out” and downloaded to read on the Kindle, as well as audio books I can listen to from the iPad. I’m sure there are...

Chores Are Done from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I am happy to say that the beds are all made! Clean sheets on three beds that were completely stripped down and moved. The furniture guys set the mattress up in the basement but didn’t put the dust ruffle between the mattress and box springs so either Vince and I have to do that or...

Today’s Chores from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Most every night I make a list . . a real pencil and paper list . . of the things I need to do the next day. It seems like between about 6 p.m. and midnight, there’s a steady stream of things that I need to get done that run through my head but when...

The Links from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Thank you all for letting me know what you’re seeing. Enough of you have told me you’re able to see and click on the links that for those who can’t, it’s something random and I have no idea what to tell you. I’ve checked in using the Chromebook, Windows laptop, Android tablet, Android phone, and...

Recipe Links from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

When I write about a recipe I’ve made, especially if it’s a recipe that I made pretty much exactly according to the directions, or . . as exactly as I can do, I try to always put the link but someone, or more than one reader sometimes, will ask for the recipe. I’m wondering if...

One Done/Two Left from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The old truck did pass inspection yesterday. Yay! No repairs needed. Vince had the mechanic check the air conditioner and he said it’s blowing cold air . . seems to be working fine. Vince hooked up his ice bucket air conditioner for the trip from Texas to Missouri for nothing. We surely haven’t needed the...

Norman Revisited – Literally from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

In 2016 I wrote a blog post about Norman. It was a Focus on the Family talk that I heard in 1984. It really made an impact on me so I ordered the cassette tape. Anyway, if you don’t remember my story about Norman, I think it would be somewhat interesting to go back and...

Another Hobby Lobby Trip from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Yesterday we had to go back to town. We didn’t really HAVE to go . . we got up and got dressed in “leave the house” clothes, made lists of things we both needed and waited to hear that it was time to get Vince’s car. They ended up talking on the phone and said...

A New Job for Vince from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Today I’ve had several emails/messages from ladies who are blaming me (jokingly) for them starting to cross stitch .. one for the first time and several who did it years ago and have picked it up again. I read those messages to Vince and he’s decided he’s going to start a subscription service for husbands....

The Honda from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

First, I’m not blaming the transmission shop. The Honda seems to have a unique problem. I will not say . . ok . . I will say it. I think it’s time for the Honda to go . . to the Honda graveyard or to someone who can work on Hondas or to someone who...

That Poor Chicken! from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Look at that egg in the back! That must have been like having a 14 pound baby! Nicole showed it to me when I went by to get Addie’s stuff she wanted to bring to our house. When I picked Addie up, the first thing she asked me was “Did mom show you that huge...

Interesting Buildings from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

The other day when we were out exploring, we came across a couple of buildings I thought were interesting enough to stop and take pictures. This was along Route 66 .. probably Arvilla, MO. Vince said “It’s interesting that people travel here even from other countries to drive Route 66 and we are on it...

Keyhole Garden from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

There’s a demonstration of some type at the Farmers’ Market most days when they’re open. It must have been about the keyhole garden recently because the display was still up when we were there today. A little mini keyhole garden. Isn’t that so cute? I told Vince .. I want a dozen of these and...

A Bit of Exloring from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We’ve been hearing about a nursery in La Russell which is about 30 miles from our house so we decided to drive out there today and talk to them about doing some landscape work. It was a beautiful day for exploring. The nursery will have to send their landscaping guy out to make pictures and...

Lawn Mowers from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

We’ve had to buy a lawn mower. Vince sold the mower in Texas and for what we’re paying here to have grass cut, a 52″ cut zero turn mower will pay for itself in a bit over two years but that doesn’t count the wife having to bite her tongue because the grass needs cutting....

Trying to Stay Organized from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

It’s a constant effort to stay organized. Friends will often tell me I am so organized and I tell them that I’m so unorganized, I make it look like I’m organized. I always make a working copy of whatever chart I’m working on if it’s a paper copy. If it’s a pdf pattern, I use...

Protecting the Plants from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

Why do I seem to need to say “I’m not complaining” so much? It seems, no matter what I write, someone thinks I’m complaining. Maybe we can just assume that I’m not complaining and when I am complaining, I’ll say “I’m complaining now!” Is that ok? Thanks. There was an ugly cabinet type thing left...

The Chromebook Delivery from Patchwork Times by Judy Laquidara

I hate to complain about Amazon because it’s pretty amazing what they do. My words say I am not an Amazon fan but my actions speak otherwise. Pretty much anything we want, we can get from Walmart or Amazon (.com for both). I would love to soupport other businesses but when we need it yesterday...
