Monday - Monday

I had planned to take some pictures this weekend.....but didn't get it done.
We are under another winter storm warming for later today and tomorrow.....Guess that is part of a North Dakota winter.
I didn't rush out for "Black Friday"....I worked at the quilt shop. But Saturday I did have to venture out early to get a great deal on thread at a local fabric store.....Got 2 !!! One for me and one for a friend. So now we have enough thread to sew all winter.
Grandson Cayden had a hockey game Saturday...... I always enjoy watching the kids play hockey. I decided to stay home yesterday but Grandpa went and the Packers won !!! Gooooooo Packers !!!
Lots of appointments and work days this if I don't write for a few days....... I will be back !!
Enjoy your day.......

Happy Thanksgiving !

We have a very cold and snowy and down right "icky" weather day here in North Dakota.
And we have opted to stay home and stay warm. I did put a pie in the oven ! That will be great later today with some HOT coffee.

I am going to try to get caught up on reading my blogs and go through email. Then maybe sew a little while !!

Both these pictures were taken in Washington when I was there in October. Such beautiful trees !!!...... they were SO BIG ! Just makes you wonder how many years they have been there. If only trees could talk and tell us their story.............
Time to check the pie.................
Have a wonderful weekend with family and friends.

Let it snow.......let it snow.......let it snow......Uff Da !

It is about 6 inches high on the deck railing........ Soft fluffy snow laying on the trees.............

Tricky part is to see the ditch on the sides of the roads...... this is my I know where those edges are.....LOL But the roads......they take a bit of concentration. The worst people will NOT slow down !!!..

Woke up to snow !! Thick fluffy snow coming down.......... no wind yet, but they say this afternoon the wind is going to come up. I am not ready for winter yet. So.....I have to take along my blanket, wear my boots, get my hat and mittens..... I have a snow brush in the car.

I work today at 2pm......and they say by tonight when the wind is blowing...that travel in the rural areas will be "dicey"..their words, not mine. Hmmmmm I have never spent the night in a quilt shop !!! That could be fun.

The dogs are loving the snow....well, Rollie more than Gus. So it will be in and out and in and out. The good thing about covers up the mud and rocks that Rollie likes to eat.
I will keep you posted on how the weather is.... could be tricky Thanksgiving travel for many.

First Snowfall

Baby it's cold is 18 degrees.. Today we got the first snowfall here.......... I have not been out of the house all day. I have plenty to keep me busy inside.
I really should venture out and get a couple things...... wanted to get some copies made....stop at the Mall....(call me crazy!) and then of course, Wal-Mart. You are not allowed to go to town unless you stop there for something !
I worked all day yesterday at the quilt first day on the job. I love it !!! All that fabric to pet all day ~! Just doesn't get any better than that. The others that work there are very nice.
I am NOT looking forward to winter.....BUT the good thing is.........HOCKEY games !!!
We go to the first game tomorrow....can't wait ! I hope GS #2 plays well this year. He is still rather short for his age....lots of big guys to skate around and away from !! He is going to have to practice a bit of speed skating. Goooooooooooo Packers !!!
Guess I will see what else I can do.....maybe skip the trip to town and go sew !!
Stay Warm !

I am heading down a new path..........

I see a new path in my future and I have to explore it and see where it leads.......
I was offered a job at a quilt shop !......That has been my dream job for years and I never expected that I would get the chance to work in a QUILT SHOP.
So...... I am changing jobs.
...............oh there will be so many things to learn !!! I am very excited.
I will let you know how it goes.

Thursday evening.......

This picture was taken from the house I was visiting in Camano Island, Washington...... It was so pretty there........... Today I had to take Sam (the old cat) back to the his thyroid was too the Dr. adjusted his meds and we will try this for a month. He seems better.

I also made my trip to the chiropractor - it had been too long and I am a mess again. I really do vow to go once a month !! And I should get a massage now and then too !!...

If there are any "stitchers" or embroidery people out there.... I need some help.
What do you use for tracing your designs ??.....The patterns I have suggest a brown fine line PIGMA pen. Any thoughts on this ?...or other suggestions ??
And do you use a light box ?

Not much else going on today....... it was cool today ! - but no snow !!!

Cloudy Tuesday

This is the Mr. Menace....parking himself right on my computer !!! This is Sam.....he is sleeping.....poor old guy.... he is 22 years old. But doing pretty good for an old guy. He is on thyroid meds now.

Well, I had hoped to get out in the flowerbeds and clean them up...but it is sprinkling and a bit colder than I thought it was going to house stuff wins for today.

I took a "specimen" in for Tinkerbelle and her UTI infection cleaning up, but crystals are showing we may not be done with the vet yet for her. Got some thyroid pills for Sam, the liquid isn't working out so good to give him.. There are these little treats called "Pill Pockets" - you put the pill in there....and they gobble it up and don't even know they have taken a I hope those will work better for Sam. When you have old have old cats with health problems.
I see more raindops on the guess I will head to the sewing room.
