Good evening!!

Can you believe it is the last day of February 2011? Where has the first 59 days of this year gone? I'm not sure what I have accomplished in those 59 days, how about you? I know I have gone to work to make the money to help pay the bills, but what else have I done? At least I have started the year out right with the grand-kids birthday cards...... I mailed 2 today-one will be a little late (better than usual) and the second one will be early and I mean WAY early for me. I sure hope I can keep up the good work on that score. Usually I mail the cards 2 or 3 days AFTER the birthday...... What I should do is get all of the cards together at the beginning of the year then all I will have to do is address and mail. Maybe I'll get to that LOL!

We have been looking for a new place to move. I know, I hear all of you---AGAIN???  Yep! We would like a little bigger house and one that we won't have to pay a million dollars to cool during the summer. Besides, Carl would love a pool and I just might enjoy it too! Now that it is getting closer to the hot weather we decided to just stay here for the summer. It is as bad moving in the summer around here as it is moving in the winter in snow country, but for the opposite reasons. So, this weekend we started 'coolerizing' this place. It was funny at Home Depot when we asked for window plastic.... We always had window plastic at the hardware stores in NY when everybody was 'winterizing' their homes during the winter. We worked in our bedroom on Saturday, with 'coolerizing' the window and spring cleaning the whole room. It sure was nice to get that one done. Next on the list is the computer/sewing room. That shouldn't take as long because when I moved my sewing machine and table in here I did a lot of cleaning. I just need to go through some papers and I won't need to do that until after the window is done. We just hope that doing this will cut down on the cooling bills this summer. I guess, only time will tell.

The only other thing that is going on around here is our church's Stake Conference is this next weekend. We are having a special visitor speak to us. Elder M. Russell Ballard of the Quorum of the Twelve Apostles will be presiding in our Stake Center. What a privilege it will be to hear his words to us!  

Until next time, Happy Quilting,

Valentine's Day

See what my honey sent me at work for Valentine's Day? A beautiful bouquet of different colored roses. The purple were the prettiest! It is surprising that there isn't much smell to them.... I will dry these petals when they are all done giving me pleasure and add them to all the other rose petals that I have collected over the past 22 years we have been together. I have quite a collection!

Happy Quilting, Sharon
