Remember Me

We've been really busy trying to finish up with this move. We've moved almost everything but the furniture which we will be moving this trip. We had some cement poured so that we can built the sunroom between the house and the quilt room. It will be nice to sit in the sun this winter without having the cold and wind. The cats will enjoy having a good view of the birds.

I did manage to get some sewing time this trip. I completed a Christmas top I purchased as a kit from either Mary Maxim or Herschenners I can't remember which. I also made new curtains for the kitchen window. They really brighten up the room. I'm going to use the same material and make some for the dining room when we go back. I took extra time and lined up the checks so they are even. That took some doing because it certainly wasn't printed on grain.

I caught Miss Emma enjoying the sun coming through the living room window. I forgot to take the scratch pad for the cats so DH took a spare pad and used it for a guide and made a holder for the pad. It worked really well and the cats enjoyed using it to sharpen their claws. It is really nice to have a handy husband.

I hope to return to blogging on a more regular basis soon. Life should be settling down to a slower pace in the very near future.

Made it another year

We've had a busy couple of weeks here. Last weekend we had Famous BBQ and had friends over to share it with. My son, his girlfriend and her parents and the people we bought the refrigator from.

The boy thinks it's really funny that we invited people we didn't know well. It's like this - We purchased a used refrigerator to use in the new house until we move our appliances down. So when we went to pick it up we learned that Cindy and her husband Ron, Emily the daughter and the granddaughter (sorry I don't know how to spell the baby's name) are are from Asheville, NC which is 40 miles from where my DH is from (the Famous BBQ chef). We started talking about food and one thing lead to another and we said, "As soon as we come back from our trip to Idaho Carl was making his famous BBQ and we'd invite them over if she would bring a banana pudding." So we gave them a call and they came over. When Megan and her parents drove in they wondered whose car that was and Megan said, "Oh that's probably the people they bought the refrigator from". I don't know why, but for some reason they think that is just to funny.
This Saturday was my birthday. It was a fairly quiet day we had some pineapple upside down cake and ice cream and played some games. Sunday I was invited over to Megan's (the girlfriend) parents house for dinner and we broke in my new Super Scrabble game. So when the movie Julie and Julia comes out my son will take me to see that. All in all it was a nice weekend. So now I'm back to packing we have the truck half loaded for the next trip. I think the cats know a trip is in their future they've been keeping a close eye on the packing. Talk to you all soon.
