The quilt on the left is one of two I made for my granddaughters and the one on the right I made for a really lovely lady for Christmas. (That will be another story another day)Yesterday just before heading to work I was talking with Al. I said to him that it felt like snow and he said I was too low. I went to the store before work and mentioned to the cashier what I said about snow. The guy in front of me said we in fact did get snow at the northern end of Cloverdale. What next? It was just a couple of weeks ago that we had 75 degree weather. Well that is the spring for you. Sun today, rain tomorrow. I just go with the flow. I do not listen to the radio very often and when I do I am just listening to the music. I do not have satalite or any other type outside news so I just go with the flow. I am good with that. It is what it is. If I need a fire in the stove I light one. It just happens that I have one going now and I love it. I keep my bedroom door closed so that it is nice and crispy in there. I like sleeping in a cold room. I like the cold crisp air to breath. Besides when your bed is nice and toasty who cares what it's like outside. I have this routine that I do each night or rather each morning when I get home from work. I come in the door shut off the outside lights, turn on my computer, head for the bedroom turn on my heated mattress that I have on my bed, change into comfy sweats, head for the kitchen, get a snack, boot up the internet and check out my farm. I like playing with the farm. It is a bit of relaxation for me. Then off to bed to read for a while. By 2am I am snuggled down under the covers and roasty toasty. I am out like a light. I only heat up half of my bed so that if I get too warm I can move over to the other side. That is if Al isn't here. Then I don't need the heat we create that all by our selves. He is not here right now so heating mattress it is. When Al isn't around I do things a lot differently. I read in bed, stay up late and in the morning my routine is totally different. When I get up it is usually late by my regular standards. Now that I work from 9pm to 1am my sleeping and waking patterns are totally screwed up. Not what I would like and what I have been used to for many years. But hay I have a job right? When I get up in the morning I stoke the fire, start the water for coffee, turn on the computer and while I am waiting take my daily pills, thyroid and enzymes pills. I have to take them on an empty stomach so coffee is the thing I have first. After relaxing for about an hour reading or just putting around I have my breakfast. Right now I love to have a bowl of shredded wheat sometimes with a banana and sometimes just with a bit of raw sugar. I love to read when I eat my breakfast and I usually have a good book. I just finished reading a James Harriet book, All things Great and Beautiful. I think that was the one. I read it many years ago and found it in the thrift store the other day. I also just finished another book called Tisha a true story about a woman who went to teach in a remote Alaskan village in the 1920's. I finished that in a couple of days. It was well written and really good I thought. Now I do not know what I am going to read. I have a couple of books I have started but they are slow going. I may pick them up and try to finish them. I am currently working on a quilt and would love to finish it. I have a few that I need to complete and give to those who I started them for. I started to make quilts for each one of the babies in my family but everyone started having babies so close together and there were a few of them that I got behind. I would like to get caught up here soon and move on to other sewing projects. I recently fixed a jacket for Al. He has a quilted shirt jacket with a hood that he loves to wear around the ranch but it was literally falling off of him. It belonged in the rag bag. I wanted to remove the hood and put it on another quilted shirt/jacket he had but it was taking me a while to get around to it. I finally jumped in and ripped the old one apart and fixed up a new one. He loved it but misses the zipper so I will take off the buttons on the new one and put on a zipper instead. So much to do and I love it. So I will part here for now and get to the quilt. I have a lot of catching up to do. Love you all. Keep coming back.
