It's only Thursday, but it feels like I've been busy enough to fill the entire week. Weather did interfere with our Tuesday sewing plans - about 5 inches of very wet, heavy snow stopped up just about everything. Both our internet and satellite TV went out because before the snow we had rain, and of course there was that period of freezing. So, weather was a mess.
But it's pretty, too. Take a look at a few pictures I took of our winter wonderland.
Even if Terry's sewing day had been cancelled, I figured I could still get my sewing done. And with both the internet and television out of commission, the distractions were significantly reduced. I did mostly finish the remaining blocks for Goldenrod Patch, and I am now ready to cut the alternate blocks.
I have no new pictures of these blocks, so I will just rerun the previous one.
Next, my mom is having her gall bladder out today. Surgery is probably going on while I type, and I will be headed over to Hillsboro in just a little while. Should be a straightforward laparoscopic surgery, and my sisters are with her for this morning time.
Additionally, DH and I are in the process of helping our youngest get her first car. We are parents who haven't necessarily subscribed to the buy-your-kid-a-car philosophy that is common today. DD2 has had access to our cars, but has not has one of her own. This arrangement is about to end. One of my sisters has a brand spanking new car and is selling her old car to Emma. Today we get the car, change the title and registration, and all of that.
So the hectic nature of life goes, right? We deal with whatever comes our way.
Back to weather for a moment. We here in Ohio have some things we say about our weather, like "If you don't like the weather today, stick around for awhile, it will change soon." Well, temperatures on Valentine's Day, last Sunday, were just over zero degrees Fahrenheit. This coming Sunday, the forecast says temperatures will be near 60. Yeah, that's definitely a change.
Happy Quilting, Friends!
