Good morning happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I mostly worked on listing some stuff on eBay. I had started the day by pulling a pattern I had sold and thinking well this box is pretty empty I bet I can condense it with another one. Which I did and then I was like well I have this other box of patterns in the sewing room that I never listed so I went through those. Then I listed some other books I had sitting here. Somehow that was almost all day lol.
I have two grocery bags of not worth selling patterns now to donate. Hopefully I'll remember on Thursday when I'm out and about and can drop them off.

I took Simon for another little walk. We went one more little block down. My hips were a little sore on the way back but not too bad. We were only out about 15 minutes. I'm in such bad shape now. I hate that I did that to myself after being a runner! Going to try and walk a little bit every day to build up some stamina. The first day I went I didn't take my phone and it was a beautiful sky but this time it was like there was a fire somewhere. Simon was wishing I was on a sleigh so she could run like a crazy sled dog. Probably need to put a harness on her instead of using her collar. She is super strong.


I was trying to get her to sit with the full moon but she said no.


Today. What are we doing today? Maybe eBay maybe finish up the Mickey bags. Maybe finish up the dishes. I got one tub washed this morning already. Never got to them yesterday other than to organize them. I'm like where do these all come from? 

Trying to decide if I took my meds this morning or not. Pretty sure I didn't but can't remember for sure.

Good morning happy Monday! I missed posting yesterday morning since I had to close up the sewing room and that meant I had to push all my boxes in the door way into the room lol. I need to work on cleaning that up and destashing some more.

Here is my finished Unicorn #2 Rag Quilt. Still available if you want to buy it haha. $60 plus shipping. I have a few to put out for the car show this weekend now. 




Saturday I pulled out some Mickey fabrics to make some zip bags and I still haven't finished them yet but they are on their way to being done. I worked on them a bit last night after the kids left. 


The kids came over yesterday morning around 9:30 until about 4. I'm glad I had Jess bring them over to my house. They are so much easier to watch here. Plus Scott is here to help. 

This was so funny Rosie went in the dog pen


Then her brother locked her in. You can tell by the look on her face she wasn't too happy about that. He let her right back out and then she was done with that.


Simon was loving the baby



He was happy sitting in his seat for awhile so I just left him in there for a bit (sitting right next to him)


He spent a lot of time watching TV with grandpa lol.


Maybe one more time in the bassinet? Just about has it filled up. He took two little naps in there until his sister woke him up (both times). 


The only picture I took of Daniel and he had his eyes closed. 

After they left I went into the sewing room for a bit and Scott BBQ's some steaks and even cooked a vegetable! 


I worked on my Mickey bags a bit and took Simon for a little walk. I went to bed at like 9:30 and I'm still tired this morning. No plans for today other than work and sewing and washing 100 dishes again.

Good morning happy Saturday!

I was trying to listen to our club board meeting this morning but the IT people can't seem to get it to work right. 

I finished the 2nd Unicorn quilt last night. It's in the washer now. I think I will work on some non quilt stuff for a bit. I have 2 craft shows coming up so I guess I should work on stuff that actually sells at those ;)


Nothing else exciting going on today.  Hopefully I come up with something productive. I'll start with a shower ;)

Good morning happy FriYEAH!!
I thought I was babysitting this morning but Jess said Daniel is off work today so I'm off the hook. I was a tiny bit sad but I'll see the kids on Sunday :) I haven't seen them in two weeks!

Here's my work lunch from yesterday. Supporting the little hole in the wall business down the street. There were two other people there while I was there yesterday. It used to be full and a line! Hopefully I'm just missing the rush when I go in there.


After work I took a break and laid on my bed for a bit. Then I cut up 2 chickens and Trevor BBQ'd them for dinner. I forgot to take a picture. Hopefully there are left overs for lunch, you never know with these 2 guys.

I decided to just go ahead and make up the extra unicorn quilt pieces. I had to cut some more fabric to make up the difference. Now to sew them together. 


Holy cramps this morning. Aunt Flo is like but wait I don't want to go yet! Girllll you been here for 39 years it's time to leave! We have no use for you anymore!

No real work to do for work today other than a payment I don't know how to do and to turn in my time card. I guess I'll get that done.

eBay has woke up for me last night and this morning and I have 4 (small) sales. Whatever I'll take it I just need to sell all these patterns. I've been doing big sales now that I've figured out how to do that. Marking them down like 60% for their last week and such. I should put the more expensive ones on Etsy but that requires some work. 

Ok off to do my time card!

Good morning happy Thursday! Made it into the office today. I have like 5 letters to mail than take a nap I guess haha. 

Yesterday I went with Trevor to his doctor's appointment and then we went to Denny's for brunch. Came home stuffed and just wanting to take a nap!

Other than that and work I cleaned up all the scraps from the last 2 quilts into blocks and strips.


I watched the OJ Simpson doc on Netflix and finished that yesterday. So crazy how he got off but hearing how the jury was picked and him not taking arthritis meds to make his hands swell up so the glove wouldn't fit. Not to mention the Furhman mess. Marcia Clark was in it and she's looking good these days!

Other excitement of the day an over 100 point word on Words with Friends lol.


That's about all the excitement around here. Oh Trevor BBQ'd a tri tip for dinner last night and that turned out pretty good. I'm glad someone besides me likes to cook. If only he'd wash the dishes too when he's done.

Good morning happy hump day again! This week is moving right along.

Last night I had darts and one of the team mates didn't show up. He thought it was on Thursday. I got Trevor to come down and sub for him so that was nice. We were tied up til the last game and we won! Trevor won one game and I won 2 so that was exciting. I got a low ton too so I earned half my  money back ;)

I got both of my quilts done yesterday and posted on FB, the neighbor claimed the unicorn one so now I think she is done buying for her grandkids.









I was going to make up the extra pieces but today I'm thinking I'll just put them away for awhile and work on some other kind of project for a bit. I started cleaning up my scraps from these 2 yesterday.

Today Trevor wants me to go with him to his dermatologist appointment. It's at 10:20 so that's coming up quick. I need to go jump in the shower in a few minutes. 

So far just one thing to do for work today and I need to figure out how to do it so probably a slow work day too. I have to go into the office tomorrow to mail a few letters. I already have them written up so I'll have to find something else to do while I'm there for the day. Joy!

Aunt Flo decided to be mean and show up again. I was hoping she was gone for good since she didn't come to hang out last month. Wishful thinking I guess :(

Good morning happy Tuesday!

Yesterday I had enough work to keep me busy all day. It's a miracle! 
After work I got the fairy quilt all cut and in the washer and dryer. It was late when it was done so I haven't went out to get it and take a picture yet.

I got the unicorn quilt all sewn except for the outside edge. I got too tired to finish it last night so I'll probably get it done today. Then it will be clipping all the seams.


Trevor made us some white people tacos as he calls them haha. We are out of cheese and sour cream. They were still good though ;)


I watched a few things on Netflix yesterday. 

What Jennifer Did. People are so crazy! Also why do they go talk to the police for hours and hours and not ask for an attorney?


Megan Leavey, I had never heard of her but looked her up while I was watching the movie. In the movie she joins because she wants to get away from her life but in real life it was because of 9-11. I wonder why they changed it?


I think I've seen this movie before but it had been a really long time. Good one!


Darts tonight so I will be social later ;)

Ok off to finish up like 15 payments for work! People were busy yesterday getting things done!

Good morning happy Monday. Although Monday's aren't ever very happy here lol. I need to do like Scott and take off every other one so I can have more time off ;)

Saw this on FB and had to save it. So true haha.

I worked on my 2 quilts yesterday. I realized I cut 8 sets of everything instead of 6. I debated using all 8 sets but that's a lot of backing fabric and batting and then people wouldn't want to pay more so I just pulled out the extras. It's almost enough for another quilt for both of them so I will just add to them I think and make another set.

The fairy one is ready for clipping and it's trip through the washer. Should be able to get that done today!


Pepper steak for dinner with mashed potatoes and zucchini. Yum! I took some ground beef out for dinner tonight I think I'll make tacos if we have enough tortillas left. I'll have to check. If not I'll have to come up with a plan B.


Lots of work emails this morning and a meeting in 9 minutes so that will keep me busy for a little bit. I'll have to go into the office tomorrow and do more letters too. Blech. 

Darts is on Tuesday this week so my social time will get done early in the week.

Good morning happy Sunday! I wish this was a 3 day weekend! I think I say that every weekend too.

Friday after work I had to go get change for my craft show. While I was out I picked up my prescription from Walgreens (took 2 trips since they keep putting it back before I get there) and then hit the grocery store.

McDonald's has some magnificent bird of paradise plants in their drive through. My neighbor had given me one once but at the time it was too messy for me. I might have to rethink when I get around to landscaping again because they are so fun.


Check out the size of this brisket. Damn it's huge. 


This is $350 worth of groceries all fitting in my little trunk area. So crazy. I did buy a lot of meat though since we were out. As long as we have some meat I can come up with something to cook.


After I got home I went down to watch my friend Carol play darts and get my car show vendor application turned in. I kept forgetting to do that and then couldn't find my app so she brought one down to the kitchen for me.

I spent the rest of the night organizing my craft show stuff. I separated out my zip bags and left a bunch of the duplicate bags at home since I knew it was going to be a small venue.

Of course it was RAINING when I was loading the car in the morning and raining when I unloaded the car at the lodge and raining when I had to load it back up lol. Good thing they had it inside.

When I got there we couldn't find my tables so someone took down their stuff to make me a spot (the wife of the guy running it). Then later she put it back up in a spot where someone didn't show up so that worked out. As I expected it was a bit of a sleeper event. I did make back my booth fee and a little bit more but not really enough to do it again. 


I have 2 8' table cloths and of course one of the ones I brought was not the 8' but a 6' so I just put the quilts out there. All my stuff is still in the car. I'll unload that later. Maybe tomorrow lol. My next show is the car show in 2 weeks so too long to just leave it ALL in there. 


My little guy got his first professional hair cut yesterday. Jess sent me the pictures. I guess he did pretty good with his little tablet to watch while they did it. 


Looking so handsome!


I'm not watching the kids this Sunday (so far haha) so should be a lazy day. Probably will work on my quilts a bit more. The Fairy one is ready for the batting and backing. I think I will get the Unicorn one to that point too then I'll cut all the batting at the same time. That is a bit of a challenge since it is so wide.

Scott made us breakfast and it's ready! Have a great day!

Good morning happy FriYeah!!

Lots of stuff to do today.

Yesterday I got my 4 squares sewn together for the fairy quilt. Next step is to iron them flat then cut out the batting/backing.


The Unicorn quilt is ready for it's 2nd round on the sewing machine to join the 2 square sets together.


Our team won darts last night by one game. Not because of me though lol. I definitely need to go practice more! Jess brought the baby down at the end to get the diapers I had in my car and hung out for a few minutes. All my hanging out with buddies left so I just came home after.

This morning I went to feed the cats their morning snackies and my new box of food was all disgusting inside. This is the 2nd time I've had this happen. I contacted Amazon and they are sending a new box. I was able to salvage all but 2 cans that were open. Ick. No wonder Simon kept smelling the box lol.


Things to do today:

Pack up Easter so I can put it in the shed when I go out there to look for my craft booth stuff for tomorrow. I only need to take a few things from out there since the show I am doing is inside and they provide the tables and chairs. Lets hope people show up because it's inside AND it's supposed to rain. It's been in the 80's and beautiful the last 2 days.

Also need to put the folding chairs in the shed while I'm at it. 

I want to go through my selling boxes and pick what to take instead of taking everything too. I am not going to take my coaster racks so more stuff will go on the tables. I don't even know what I have since I haven't taken it out since last November! 

I should go to the grocery store too since we don't have any meat left. Last night I had chicken strips and horrible fries from the fryer in the bar while I played darts. 

Work was busy this morning but maybe quieting down now that everyone got done with their morning emails haha.

Good morning happy Thursday!

Currently caught up with work so we'll see if I get any emails today.

Yesterday my mom came over around one with egg salad, croissants, salad, brownie bites and chips. We figured out her little photo printer and she probably printed out about 20 pictures in 6 hours lol. I don't think it's going to be the answer to printing out her 20,000 pictures on her phone. 

Mom stayed until around 7 then I worked on sewing the first round for these 2 new rag quilts. Next up is ironing them all open.


I got a lot of laundry done yesterday and even washed some of the boys stuff ;) Few more loads to go to get it all done. 

Darts tonight! Guess I'll take a shower at some point today.

Good morning happy hump day!
Made it through a day of work in the office yesterday. I went to the post office on my lunch to drop off a package. I noticed that they do not have ADA compliant doors there. Odd thing to notice but damn them doors are heavy and they have 2 sets of them. How does a federal building get away with that? 

I went through the drive through at the Hawaiian bbq place for lunch and then sat in the break room. Found out a girl at work is pregnant. Not that I really talk to her but that is exciting for her. 

Got home and pinned my new quilt blocks together for their first round of sewing. Then I went to bed lol. Exciting I know. I have frozen burritos for dinner.


Oh I also did some laundry. I picked out all my clothes to wash first. I need to go out and change the laundry. Next is towels. I am not going to wash anyone else's laundry because they sat next to 2 full laundry baskets in the living room for 3 days and didn't bother washing anything. 

And then Scott was surprised when he went to get ready to go to dinner that he didn't have any clean pants. 😀😂😈. This is even more annoying since I had made comments a few days earlier about how I finally got all those clothes in the baby crib put away and hardly any of them were mine... and how it's like I'm being taken advantage of. I resigned from doing anyone else's laundry about 10 years ago and it was the best thing I ever did. If I wash your clothes I'm just being nice but you can't expect me to was them. So now will be a reminder ;)


Too bad I can't do that with dishes too but those gross me out lol.

My mom is bringing us lunch today so I can help her with a new photo printer thing my dad bought her so she can get some pictures off her phone. She has so many pictures on her phone that she can't get any through text message anymore. Almost too much stuff to even get a text. Apparently just deleting the 100000 similar pictures isn't an option. We'll see how this goes when she comes. I'm taking bets on what time she gets here with "lunch". I'm guessing 2pm. 

I'm covering for a gal from another office for the next couple days so we'll see if that makes my work busier. I have a few things to do this morning left over from yesterday still. I'm missing the old way that I used to do things so that everything worked so much smoother. Now that I'm back working with my old office I feel like I should just do all the old stuff I used to do. I know now that is why they mixed up our offices. But the whole set up is stupid to begin with. 

Ok off to clean out my email box and change the laundry!

Hello happy Tuesday from the office. Just a quick post then I have to get to work ;)

Yesterday Scott brought home the china cabinet from his mom's house. We had to move furniture around a bit to find a spot for it to fit. Still need to rehang my picture. Trevor said we can't ever get rid of the picture lol. I tried to give it away once and all the kids were like wth Mom lol. The big couch is now floating in the room so Tubz is super excited to have fresh material to scratch the hell out of.  Still need to find a place to put that little table on the left too. Might end up in the shed for a bit.


I almost got 2 new quilts worth cut out yesterday. Just need about 16 more squares cut for the fairy one.

 

We went to BJ's for Melissa & Eric's dinner last night. We had a big table!

My mom, dad, niece Adrian, nephew Tony and Trevor's friend Chloe came along with my kids.





I got chicken parm for my dinner it was pretty good. Still have a piece in the fridge for later if Trevor doesn't eat it. I told him not to ;)


They got pazookies for a free bday dessert




I told Nate to enjoy getting to come as the only child haha. The other 2 were at their Grandpa's on the other side.


The girls got a margarita flight



At the office today so nothing else will get done. Probably pass out when I get home from having to be social all day lol. Have a good one!
