Normal Days Doings....


Because my DH and I have been under the weather or getting out from under the clouds during pre-Thanksgiving days, we elected not to be around other people for fear we would be giving them an early Christmas present or a belated Thanksgiving package.  Our Thanksgiving was a stuffed cornish hen with gravy, veggies, and cranberry sauce. 

 So I may not have been as busy as some of you.

However,

I am slipping into in one of those periods where I know I have to do things, but looking back wondering what I have done. To refresh my memory, I have been listing things I have done during the days before Thanksgiving.

Not in order of importance, just rambling....

1)  Started to walk with DH to the mailbox and back. Right now, he walks all the way to the mailbox and I walk as long as I can, then wait until he comes back to where I stopped and we walk back to the house together.  Hope to make it to the mailbox with him soon (little over 1/2 mile r/t)


Property outlined, very shaky, mailbox at corner of lane and road.  Ponds, or tanks are dry now..

2)  Scheduled a few posts, including this one. 

3)  Had dentist appointment...x-rays and diagnosis....Will have a lulu of one during the first half of January.   Let's forget that and continue.....

4)  Still handquilting and a long way to go...

5)  Remember these bolts DH got for me in Corpus?



I have only 4 more left and hopefully by the time you read this they will be in use also. I used a lot of them as is for larger pieces of fabric, such as my flannels which were not folded very well.  They will be in better shape now. 


The rest I cut into mini-bolt sizes for smaller pieces.  To protect the fabric from the cardboard, I used a few plastic bags from store purchases (not grocery).  I was planning to use some Glad Cling Wrap, but that is so expensive it will be a last resort.  I looked around and found some of the very thin white trash bags...the kind that has the handles and is difficult to tear open and so thin they are really worthless for trash bags...so I cut them up and am able to cover about 6 or more mini-bolts with each one, using scotch tape.  


It takes a little time, but hopefully they will last awhile....

6) 7) 8) etc....general housework and goof/off stuff......

Hope to start another quilt shortly.  My machines are feeling neglected......

And I have other plans......

Later....

Sounds like you've been accomplishing a lot. Hopefully you will be fully recovered soon. I've been fighting mine for over four weeks.
