About Me

My photo
I am a 40 something female who has a great love for crafts...any crafts. I love quilting, I collect fabrics, books and patterns. I enjoy traditional patterns in bright colors. My favorite fabrics are batiks and brights. Because I am a great collector...I now have a stash that is out of control. My goal for the upcoming year is to reduce my stash. I won't stop collecting so I need to become more productive.

Good Morning

Good Morning All!

Well, had to say goodbye to a really good friend last night. She and her family are moving back to Texas. I will miss her greatly! Ate at her favorite restaurant ...Rosie's. I was good...I had a Salad and just a couple of chips. I guess I will see in another week if this diary entry diet is going to work. The nutritionist insist that it will.

On a good personal front...I wore my white pants and they were really loose in the hips...that is good. But the thighs continue to hold on...why, why!!!???

WEll off to the gym this AM.

Tonight I will meet with the girls for out Night out.

Have a happy safe holiday weekend. I will be at the dark place.

Happy 4th of July!!!

Lake Tahoe

Got a call today from my uncle...there is a fire in Lake Tahoe...very near our beloved home. So sad the number of homes already lost. I am praying for all affected by this fire so so sad. Trying to think of others . There are people who live there full time...this is their home, their only home. I can't imagine lossing everything, your collectibles, your underwear...everything!

Today I went to get new shoes for the Escort...always a big ordeal! Well, I now have to wait until tomorrow for the tire place to get the tires...don't they know I have to go to the dark place tomorrow????I also need a haircut. I have a nutritionist appointment tomorrow too...too much to do in one day before I have to work...yuck!

I also have lots of laundry to do plus I have to get my fat butt to the gym......so I guess no sleep for me tomorrow. Oh well, I will make it....I hope.

Have a wonderful day all!!!

Good Days....New Inspiration

New quilt....great isn't it!

It is amazing the amount of time I spend doing nothing....or wasting time that I could be cleaning or organizing something.

My new hobby....gaming is beginning to take a lot of my time. First I was just playing the games, then I became a tester....the testing part is hard because you have to try to make the game crash....some are easier to crash then others. I am really shocked with some of the games I get to evaluate...what were these people thinking of. I try to give a complete and fair evaluation to all...some of those games are just bad and you really can't expect people to pay money for something you created in a day.

Now back to the sewing room clean up...not doing anything today...reading, relaxing and just plain doing nothing... did however get my fat butt to the gym. Not sure what the plan is for the night...probably more of the same. Have some DVDs that I want to watch....hope there isn't a game on....tired of sports.

Went out to dinner with friends last night.....great food, good conversation...an excellent time! Very grateful for my friends. Got bad news last night too....friend is getting divorced! Aww...just don't know what to say. I know she feels she can do better and that she is tired of living her life a certain way...but things aren't always great by yourself.

The Cold Shoulder??

My Time at the "dark place" this week is over. Not a bad place to work but sometimes it is so difficult to understand the people who work there. People say it is because there are a bunch of women working there together...I don't agree.

Cold Shoulder...well, that is when people you at one time called friends or thought of as your friend suddenly stop talking to you. Avoid eye contact with you....basically treat you like you have a communicable disease. That is what is happening to me at the "dark place". Should I worry....some say no because these people were not really your friends to start with but I will be honest with you it does hurt. It isn't a hurt that has lasted longer than a minute but it did hurt for a period of time.

I treat everyone the same....I am fair to all. I don't favor anyone and don't expect anyone to favor me. But to my friends I am true to the bitter end . Is it wrong to expect that in return?? I say no....I have two wonderful friends that I have had in my life for 20 years and 42 years respectively.....they have seen the good and bad. Been there through good me and bad me. Supported me through my psychotic breaks and breakdowns. True friends who see no color , no wrong...supporters through thick , thin and bad men, and boy have there been some bad men, Now that is friendship!

Do I feel bad about the "cold shoulder" ....sure, but will I survive? DAMN STRAIGHT! So Cold shoulder people....bring it on!!! And...get a LIFE.

Now, back to the purpose of this blog....organization. What a wonderful idea...hehe! WEll, I will have to get a move on....people coming to visit and my guest room is a total disaster AGAIN!!

Well, another thing happening....big birthday planning for the man...he has no idea what is happening and why should he since his birthday was two months ago! It is going to be so much fun.....! Friends and family flying in for the occassion....fun, fun and more fun!

Until next time...may your worries be light and your blessings be many!
