What Again?

Today we begin with a call to the Dr......  Lem fell last night and hit his elbow....  It began to swell so I put an ice pack on it.......  It is better this morning but since tomorrow is a holiday I called for an appointment.

We go in at 2:00........

I finished the Angels from book one that is the top of the center panel on The Nativity.....  I have now begun book two, the Holy Family.........  Doesn't look like much but that is hours of stitching.......  I cannot call it work because I enjoy it so much.........  I finally figured that it takes about one hour to do a 10 x10 stitch square.......Using that rule of thumb you are looking at 10 hours of effort........ 




I came across this pattern in the last box I brought downstairs.......  Decided to make it for myself.....  Looks rather simple and should not take long........

I chose Prussian Heather from Knit Picks Wool of the Andes..... Here

I did get the laundry finished yesterday and Jason came by so that we could get my bookcase from Happy's...

The rugs I got from there need cleaning..........  Maybe I can drop them off at the cleaners on my way home from the Dr's office...........

I might even get a picture of the bookcase taken for tomorrow....... 

Marilyn came for dinner last night.......  We had a grand time and watched a movie... "The Hundred Foot Journey".......

Now off to review the list and see what I can accomplish today.........

Another Problem Day


I had big plans for Monday........  It did not go well for me........  Lem had computer problems and I spent several hours trying to get him online...... 

T.J. was not well...seems he has a couple of abscessed teeth.........  Rebekah brought Daisy to stay with us while she took him to the vet............ 

Jane called because she needed to use our Greenville phone book........  Right after Rebekah left Jane and Beck stopped by.........  We had a pleasant visit and as soon as they left Rebekah came back to get Daisy...

T J was spending the night at the vet in preparation for surgery today.........  When she left it was time to think of what to have for dinner.......  I had planned to have Chicken Genovese but fixing that
would take too long......  Instead I settled for having some leftovers and frying the chicken pieces for the Chicken Genovese to cook today........  Still doing laundry.....  One load left to dry..........  Put the clean sheets on the bed, folded the rest of the laundry that was done and got the meal on the table.......


That meant carry-overs for today......  Lem and I watched TV together till bedtime and I worked on the Nativity......  I really want to get at least one panel completed for next Christmas......  The top half is done and now I am starting on the second half........

Went up stairs at some point yesterday afternoon to get the bolt of fabric I purchased about 12 years ago.  My first purchase from Thousands of Bolts........  Not really sure why I bought it......  Never really liked it...

I am now making some bags from it to put in the freezer.......  Since we have a chest type freezer I end up digging around in the bottom more than I like....  The plan is to put all the pork or chicken or beef or veggies in separate bags to make searching easier.....

Got the bags cut out but never sewn......

This morning started with more computer problems....  Finally called Chuck.....  He came by and got it all fixed up......  Chris stopped to pick up the package that was left here in error.........

I finally got to write this blog and it is now eleven...............

Now off to finish the last of the laundry, unload the dishwasher and start getting the salad made for dinner tonight..........  Invited Marilyn to join us and I hope that I can get in touch with Carol and have her over too...   Hmmmmmmm  Wonder if I will get yesterday's list and today's list completed before tomorrow....

We shall see........
