Quilt With Us

How come the days go by so fast when you're on vacation?  It doesn't seem fair, does it?  I have to say that today I could use some grease to lube my jaw.  I have never talked so much in one day...phew!  

I wanted to share my lovely view from my brothers lake front home.... Sorry for the reflection...the sun was out and no matter where I stood I couldn't get the photo right.  

Also, here's a photo of their bird feeder this morning...  It reminded me of a fast foods drive in or maybe I should say a fast seed fly in.  If you look to the right of the feeder, there's a Goldfinch hanging onto a wire waiting patiently for an opening perch at which time he swoops in and then another comes, hangs on the wire and waits his turn.  This goes on all morning.

 I wasted way to much time watching these little guys and ended up getting a late start.  When my mother asked me why I was so late I told her, "it's the birds fault".  Did you ever do that as a child...pass the buck when your mom caught you doing something?  With six kids in the family it happened all the time with us. OH,  my poor baby brother...no wonder he doesn't have any children. lol     Had a wonderful day today.  

Got my dads closet cleaned out and took in 4 pairs of pants.  Since his illness he's lost a lot of weight and by me doing the alterations, saved my folks $12.50 a pair.  Tonight I am drafting up a walker bag my mom wants on her walker.  Hope to start it tomorrow.  If we get it done I'll share a photo.  Hope I understand what she's telling me she wants.  We were like Mutt and Jeff Frick and Frack today.  Our brains were just not in tuned.  I'm thinking she's having a hard time explaining what she wants and she's telling me I'm not listening.  Then we'd stare at each other and break out laughing.  You had to be there to see the humor in it.  Well, have two more pants to fix tonight and that pattern to start so I'd best sign off.  Hope you had a wonderful Thursday.

Enjoying your photos and your humour. I would be the same with surroundings like that. You know I got to thinking those birds are pretty smart, they line up in an orderly fashion waiting for a chance at the perch!!LOL
Great to hear the visit is going good and that you are able to help your parents. Look forward to seeing your finish walker bag. Have fun take lots of photos those memories you'll then be able to revisit again.

Birds have a way of mesmerizing you. I love to watch them, it is very peaceful. So, enjoy those moments - it's vacation and time to relax. Hope your project for your mom comes together (I'm sure it will). Enjoy the rest of your time with your family.

Beautiful pics Debbie,  I love the birdies.  I'm glad your having a good time with your parents and helping them out with alterations and house cleaning.  They will hate to see you leave.  Yes, vacations seem to fly by all too quickly.  But I have to admit that I have never taken a vacation that I didn't have to come home to "rest" up. lol

I'd get off to a slow start too with that wonderful view and the bird show.  How delightful. Sounds like things are going good - even with confusion in communication with your mom. You had one busy day - hope you don't wear yourself out. I'm sure it feels great to be doing those things for your folks. Sweet dreams tonight my friend.

Your brother has a beautiful view and I'd spend time out there reading or just listening to the birds. Sounds like you and your mom have made some wonderful memories today. Saving money by doing the alterations is wonderful for them. When you get the tote pattern done and it made into one, you'll have to share it with a picture. So glad that you are having a grand old time with them.

Sounds like you're having a great time.  Precious memories, those.  Enjoy the moments.

What a view!  You just have to enjoy moments like that.  I'm so glad you enjoyed your day with your family.

What lovely pics Debbie.  We just recently hung a bird feeder on one of our trees and darned if a black squirrel didn't come along and knock it to the ground.  Broke the lid right off.  Guess I need to buy one somewhere other than Wal-Mart!  How did your mom take the news of your cancer?
