Ha ha ha that's funny Sandy!

I've been helping my friend Just strip wallpaper in the house they bought. They hope to move soon. I like doing that kind of thing, crazy I know. We got it done but there is still so much glue on the walls she's got quite a job ahead of her before painting!

I hosted my book club Friday night, Sandy are you keeping up? We each make one of the dishes  mentioned in the book so we eat while discussing. I made a seafood chowder and watermelon sorbet. We also had baguette and brie, chocolate mousse and a few other dishes. YUm. 

I was a good as I could be with the food plan Rhonda started me on but being up at Jill's for almost a week then book club it was tough but I'm down from a 14 to a 10  since the retreat. I don't weigh often, I'd rather go by inches, I'm happy with my results so far. Thanks Rhonda!

I'm working on several projects at once. I finished piecing all the leader and ender blocks I had cut out, so I'm putting that one together. I think I went a little over board and will end up with a large king and a throw! Got the final clue for a mystery lynne and I are both doing plus I have 2 BOMs I'm doing one is 2 a month, 1 is 1 a week. They both go to the end of the year. When I finish up the mystery I will give the sewing room a thorough cleaning and start the mess over again!

What is their FB page name or website URL?

Check this place out - Best Little retreat center in Texas.   If I were in Texas I’d definitely go there.   Their main room is like 1600 sq feet with design walls around the whole room and spacious individual sewing stations all set up.  Looks like a fun place - saw it on FB

Oh, Lynne....your comeback about the shopping/fishing reminds me of when my husband asked me why I kept buying and collecting cookbooks when I hadn't used all of what I had.  I asked him why he still collected those expensive German nutcracker people when not one of them had ever cracked a nut!  He never questioned my cookbook habit again LOL!

I have no idea why that posted twice, but it won't let me delete it either!  Crazy website.

I'm sure it is quiet at your house now Darce.  Now you can spoil those little ones even more because you really can send them home!

I'm trying to rearrange my empty nest too.  I need to get rid of some furniture and get some different pieces too.  

Hubby is on his way home from his fishing trip in Canada.  I had plans to accomplish a bunch of different things this week, but I don't think I really did any of them.  I kept busy away from home for most of the week.

A group of the fishing wives went outlet shopping one day, the men wanted to know why we had to drive 2 hours to go shopping, we just asked why they had to drive 12 hours to go fishing!

I spent yesterday helping a friend decorate the reception hall for her son's wedding this weekend.  

Enjoy the weekend, the weather sounds much better than the dreary stuff we've had the last few days.

Silence is mostly golden, Darce but little faces are silver!

Comment by Darce Ovel on Friday

Hi all - yes, I'm still around.   Got a new laptop yesterday so I can check in more easily.  For some reason, my iPad does't update this site very well.   

Well, I can definitely say that Jeff and I are so completely enjoying having an empty nest again.  The peace and quiet is so amazing.  That being said, boy do I miss seeing those little faces every day.  I still have them on my day off and pick them up from daycare on Wed when Natalie works late....for now.  When she switches them to the daycare center in Cresco, I won't need to pick them up anymore.  They're spending the night with us this weekend so Natalie can go to an out of town wedding too.  There have been a few bedtime calls to Nana just to say good-night.  

Meanwhile, I'm slowly bringing quilting supplies back upstairs to set up the sewing room again.  We've been trying to get our windows replaced, so am trying to hold off bringing up the majority of the stuff until the new windows are in......which at the rate it's going maybe a year or 2 from now.  So not happy with this process.  Anyway, my machine, big ironing board and a few projects are up, so at least I can do something!  I also got a daybed for what is now a combination play and guest room.   The trundle just came today.  The kids both fit on the daybed with plenty of room at this point tho.   

It sure has been a stormy patch lately.  Jeff's put in a lot of OT - he's out again now.  

Wow!  Love all the quilt photos being posted!!

Prayers going out......
