Beauthful day

Okay, the weather is gorgeous outside here - warm enough to be pleasant and a breeze to keep it that way. We, my husband & I, picked the oranges off their tree and then picked the lemons off their tree. We didn't lose too many of either due to the frost we had last month.

I took advantage of the weather outside today to sandwich 6 of my small quilts. Don't like the smell of the spray baste inside the house and neither does hubby. These little ones have been patiently waiting for either a nice day or my small quilt group to meet. Since we cancelled our small group for this month, I just had to take advantage of the beautiful weather. The breeze made it a bit of a challenge to work but I persevered and triumphed! Feels great!

I worked yesterday on a couple of more small projects, getting them ready for handwork. I'm bound and determined to get things done and when I'm in the mood to work on them is the time to make sure I work on them. People say I can do that any old time - well, nope - have to be in the mood. This weekend has been and still is a mood - means I will get more done yet today.

Have to get one more load of laundry done before too long. Might do that before dinner, depends on how I feel - but it will get done today.

I'm off to do more work on projects. Hope to have some pictures before long.

February already!?!

Good grief! We are one third done with February and I'm still thinking January. Egads!

Well, I've finished one more of my UFO quilts off my list from 2010. Yes, I know, it's a bit late, but it's finished. I haven't had time to take a picture yet, but will try this next week to do that. I was working on a quilting project today and promptly ironed the wrong side of the fusible stuff to my iron! Yes, I was very unhappy. Had to let the iron cool down before I could clean it.

Weather has been good lately. We could use some more rain, but we don't seem to have any in the near future. We've had a north wind the last few days which has made it seem a lot colder than it actually is. Maybe it will go away and the rain will come for a visit?

I got a new Kindle Fire HD for Christmas and have been having a blast with it. I've got Angry Birds on it and I'm learning to hate those blasted grinning pigs. Yes, it's only a game, but they have a way of grinning that gets to me. It's like they are saying "nanner, nanner, you missed me". I have also got some books on it and can check my email. Course the keyboard, such as it is, is a bit small. Which as anyone who has ever used a Kindle for email will tell you - makes one prone to spelling mistakes. The other bad thing is that the Kindle has a tendency to tell me I don't know how to spell my own name and tries to correct me every time. I finally added me to the "dictionary".

Well, I'm off to see what there is for dinner and get things going. Then I'm going to relax for a while before bedtime. Have to work tomorrow and it's going to be a long week since we are short a couple of people.
