Watched Cornerstone on my computer this morning while Mom watched TBN in her room. Fixed lunch for us, did some laundry and worked on my new quilt. Mom watched more TBN. Later, we went outside for a walk and to sit on the patio. She sits on the glider and I, of course, swing.
I have been sitting on my electric bed since finishing the dinner dishes trying to find SOMETHING to watch on the internet, when it dawned on my lighting fast mind that I have a BLOG, and I can talk to all of you here.
Let me run upstairs -- I sure need the exercise -- and snap a quick pic of the Variegated Spools. Hold on ..........
I did a video yesterday -- or was it the day before -- talking about my new quilt. Here it is if you haven't seen it. You can watch it while I go get the picture for you.
Okay. Here is what I have done as of this very minute on the V-Spools:
I am so glad I took this picture. I see I have two yellows together. I spent over an hour "shuffling" these spools so the colors wouldn't be together. There are eight different color combos. The first two rows are already sewn, but I can still move the rest around.
The borders and appliques really make this quilt. I am anxious to get to that part.
My Mom is so funny tonight! Her bedroom is all the way down the hall from mine. She keeps walking up and down the hall looking for me, and she is walking WITHOUT her cane. We have put the walker away in another room as she is not using it at all.
She came in awhile ago and told me she needed me right away. She said she could NOT find where her new sheets were. I told her they where in her bathroom in the linen closet. She said she looked EVERYWHERE, and they weren't there. I followed her back to her room and into the bath and opened the linen closet doors to show her the new lavender sheets. She was very happy. Then she walked out into her bedroom with me, and I started to leave.
She said, "WHERE are you going?"
"I'm going to my room, Mom."
"And WHAT are you going to do when you get there?" She was right in front of me, face to face, and she broke into the cutest smile -- like she had just said something funny.
I swear, if it wasn't for her mixed-up brain, she is in really good shape. She actually ran a little ways down the hall after me yesterday. I go to sleep at 9:30. She goes to sleep at 10:30 or 11.
Mom has ALWAYS been a fanatic about the laundry. She loves to fold clothes. She wanders down the hall many times a day into the laundry room to see if there is anything washing or drying. Late this afternoon she opened the dryer to see what was going around in it. She found a very CLEAN quarter and dime that had fallen out of Jerry's jeans that were still going around inside the dryer. She came to find me to ask me what to do with the 35 cents. I told her to just put it on the bar in the kitchen.
Later, when I was fixing dinner, she told me that she had LOST 35 cents and asked if I had seen it. I told her she didn't have 35 cents. She said she DID have 35 cents and it was in HER pants. She asked if she could go look in the dryer for it. I told her that Jerry's pants were in the dryer -- not hers.
It is several hours later now and she just came down the hall again. She wants to know if I have seen some BRAND NEW change that was in her pants. It was 35 cents and was very shiny. (-;
If she asks me again, I'll just go get it out of my purse and give it to her. So cute!
Nothing else to tell you tonight. All is well in my world, and I hope you can say the same about yours!
Until next time, enjoy each brand new day.
