Good Morning

I hope that you are well.

Had a bad day yesterday as

Had a call from son

He said his daughter Ame had

Gone missing she is 14.  She was found

Okay, she is depressed, this is the daughter

Who was in care & he had to fight to get her.

She not had it easy her mum is selfish & don’t

Really care about her there is another daughter

Who is with the mum’s brother.

This is Ame’s half-sister she went in to care

After there is a suspicion of abuse by the father,

Her mum tried to commit suicide not just when

Ame was living with her but a little while ago.

you have a good day have Greg’s brother

Coming up so doing dinner for them.

Take care

Hugs Janice

Good Morning

I hope you are well.

Today has more of a

Autumn feel than summer.

I got to work on the table topper,

Well I tried I broke around 10 needles.

I used universal needles but changed

To 100/16 plus tried a Schmetz needle

All broke.

I was using double sized fusible

Buckram, well after so many needles

Breaking it went in the bin, I have

Given up will do another one but

Will use the wadding which

I am waiting on.

Well I hope that any projects

You are working on go better,

I think it was either the project

Or the sewing machine being

Thrown out & project was cheaper lol.

Have a blessed day take care

Hugs Janice

Good Morning!...Wow, it is actually 9:00am and still morning cool!..unusual!!..by now it should be in the 90's..that is the California high desert for you!..I think that is a sign for you, that Fall is on it's way! Big John is craving baked potatoes that are loaded with 500 cal. Worth of bacon, cheddar cheese, and sour cream for evening dinner, so it is back to the grocery store for me!..it is funny that if you change the weather pattern just alittle, it gets you thinking about foods that we eat in that season...example-cool air leads to hot apple pie with ice cream or hot pumpkin pie with whip cream...staying with this season alittle more, makes us finish up with the last of the corn on the cob and cold watermelon...now how in the world can we lose weight when we are so blessed with these goodies to eat, especially in America...What a way to go!!...I have been on a cold peach tea kick..yummy!!..I am so crazy about the flavor, that I am now buying all the brands to discover which tastes the best...I think that I am alittle ADD ;)...keep cool and enjoy your day!!

Good Morning

Welcome to the week-end.

We will be going to the tip

Recycling place, to take the

Rubbish we have a lot of wood

To get rid of, want it out of the

Way before we start to have

The scaffolding up, which is

Not next week but the week

After, so not long before they

Start the roof.

Not sure what else we will

Be doing yet but I am sure

I will as the day progresses lol.

Have a good day & week-end

Take care

Hugs Janice

Good Morning

Hope all is well with you.

It is another nice start to

The day, may get a shower

But at least it not pouring down.

I hope to get to make a start on

The quilting of the table topper.

I need to order some wadding,

After using the stiff interfacing

I don’t like it for what I am doing,

It is fine for a round coffee table, but

The main one & dining table no prefer

Using the soft wadding.

So not too much else going on

Hope you will have a good day

Hugs Janice

Shopping day, will go to

Kettering, as we have to

Pick up our prescriptions.

Funeral is next Friday not

Bit of a drive to do there &

Back in the same day, as

The doctor said to take driving

Easy so we see.

We go to DGD’s surprise BBQ,

It is the one who’s birthday was

At the end of July, we can stay

With eldest DS so don’t have to

Do it in one day.

Well you  have a great day take care
