Hi Ho All, and Happy Fall!
see...what's been going on around here of late?
| First off,
and most occupying my mind right now...Yesterday was Day
1, Round 2 of Whole 30. Meats/fruits/Veggies here we
come! Wish us luck! We are both looking forward to this,
but still, you know good wishes always help! Right now I
am munching on a round of sweet potato, some sauteed
green beans with mushrooms, and a couple boneless
chicken thighs...Life Is Good! Katie is sitting RIGHT
beside me...you know...incase any little thing should
HAPPEN to fall off my fork...Good Dog!
oh...the most cruddy thing
happened (yes...I do know this isn't T.H.E. Literal Cruddiest
Thing) Remember I said I was in the middle of a wonderful
book series? Waaahh I was NOT in the middle! When
the current book ended, I jumped on Amazon to purchase the next
and ARGHHH...there's NO NEXT until JANUARY! Don'cha feel just
:::suspended in time or something:::: when that happens? Never
fear, I am re-reading the James Herriot/All Creatures Great and
Small Series. (all will be well, I keep repeating to myself)
I finished cleaning out the
cupboards and freezers; its good to have a recent inventory!
Then, still in canning and freezing mode, I pretty well have the
freezers stocked back up! Next up *Winter Squash*! They are
overflowing with them at the farms right now! ...and
*Apples*! Man it is just good to be alive in Fall!
of a tough pill to swallow a couple weeks ago. You guys know how
I LOVE Germany. I've been planning a trip for several years that
had gotten pushed out for summer of 2019. That seems unlikely to
happen now, as it was originally planned. HOWEVER, now that I've
had some time to sit with the idea, I know that in no way does
this slam any doors on the idea of going! A changed plan is just
a changed plan, right? Make a New Plan, Marcia! Things have a
way of working out for the best! It will be a blast going, when
This quilt caught my
eye this week on Pinterest! I just love their use
of stripes as the border and the sashing strips! Plus
this color palette is so easy on the eye...and yes, I
really am a fan of scrap quilts! I took the liberty of
outlining one block to help newer folks see what easy
units make up that block! Any ways...isn't it awesome?!
...and then there was
THIS Scrap quilt too!...Easy Peezy, eh? diagonally set
squares alternated with uneven nine patches!
Other than that...I've been
cleaning. I'll spare you the details. I actually love cleaning
much of the time. This isn't to say that I DO cleaning as often
as I should. I just enjoy it when I do! After being down with
Lyme for so long you just can't imagine how awesome it feels to
me to be able to do stuff! It ROCKS!
Onward and Upward!! :o)
a Great Week All!
