Happy June!

This is the last weekend of June 2011. Can you believe that the first half of the year is GONE? Where did it go?
What did I accomplish in the 55th year of my time on this earth?
One thing I have accomplished is to post more here. Is everybody tired of hearing from me yet? That's to bad, LOL!
Last week we bit the bullet and bought a new (to us) car and traded in the van. So far it gets about 24 miles per gallon around town and gets us where we need to go. The fella that sold it to us said, "Well, what do you think?" I guess he thought we should be really excited about a 2007 Saturn Ion and was a little disappointed when I said, "It's a car with 4 wheels and runs." Now, if we had been buying a Sebring convertible that would have been a different story.
Carl and I went 'bowling' tonight. We have so much fun playing Wii. I have gotten into riding my bicycle around the country side. It's a good thing on some of the ride there is fences because I can't seem to drive in a straight line most of the time. I also have fun pretending to be a duck and fly from post to post out to the ship.... Now, the balance games are something else. I can't keep my balance for anything! I always feel like I am gonna' fall over. I'll keep trying, but hold out little hope that I'll get those games right!

I posted new pics of the Temple site. So glad to see progress!

And of course I have been working on quilting 'stuff' too!

I guess that is all I have for tonight. I'll be back in a few day so don't say you haven't been forewarned!

Lazy Night!

How is everybody doing tonight? It is a lazy Monday night here. I have been surfing the net reading all of my quilt forums and seeing what trouble I can get into next :)
I have a grand-daughter that needs to have a quail stuffed animal for school next year (the school year starts in mid August around here). I did a little search tonight, but what I found was UGLY... really, really ugly! So if anybody has any ideas where we can find either a inexpensive ready made quail or a pattern please leave me a comment. I sure would appreciate it!
Other than playing on our Wii tonight I have been a computer potato, you know instead of a couch potato in front of the TV I have been a potato in front of the computer.
You remember the pictures of my tomato plants? Well, tonight we had BLT sandwiches with our own tomatoes! Boy, did they taste good! Next year we will have to start our plant earlier so maybe they will ripen sooner. There are a few more that need to ripen just a little bit more and we just may get to have another supper of BLT's. When I was a kid I would not touch a tomato. The only way I would eat them was in spaghetti, goulash, or sloppy joes. I still won't eat them just plain with salt, pepper and mayo on them like my Mom did. So, I guess I have 'grown up' a little by eating them in a sandwich of some sort. I remember my Mom frying green tomatoes every spring. All I can say about that is, "Yuck"!
Have a great week everybody! I am off to bed so I can be 'bright eyed and bushy tailed' for work tomorrow.

Just sitting here surfing the net looking for good bargains on fabric. Can't find anything that really 'floats my boat' as my Mom use to say.... I really don't NEED any more fabric, but it sure is nice to browse :). 
Tomorrow will be a good day to do a little 'spring' cleaning especially in my living room or front room depending on what part of the country you are from. If I get it done early enough I just may get some sewing in too! Of course the washing machine needs to get a work out while I at it too.
Until next time,

Update on the Temple........

I just finished posting more pictures on the Temple site. Not much going on yet, but will continue to check things out every week or so.....

Yesterday I finished some embroidery and today I need to get some blocks done for a swap. Other than that not much going on. I am enjoying our Wii that we bought for our anniversary. At least it gets us up off the couch and gives us some exercise. Since summer hit and the temperatures have hit 90 and above we don't go out for walks any more. Some of the games are a hoot and remind me that I am not a kid any more......

Good Evening!

I just added another page to my blog. I created the different pages so that those that don't want to know about my life, but want to know about quilting can go to that section. Also, in turn the people that don't want to know about quilting can go to their favorite area to check up on me. 
Tonight I started 'My Spiritual Side' page. I invite all that want to follow me in this journey to hop on over and see what I am about to embark on. 

Enjoy, Sharon

Happy June Everyone!

Here it is the first day of June, 2011 and I am being lazy. I have not even done any laundry! Shoulder hurts, knees hurt and I just feel crappy..... Even took a nap and that didn't help much! I just might as well get things done instead of loafing all day. 
I don't even have a quilt project that excites me :(
Nor, is there a book that I feel like reading :(

I know I am whining!  Let me get it right~~~ "My Mommy doesn't make me go to school when I don't feel good!" "My tummy hurts, my head hurts and I don't feel good!" At least that is what I remember telling my BIL many, many years ago when he was getting me up for school. I hated mornings and never wanted to get up. The other thing I use to say was something along this line, "My, Mommy said I could wear this!" and "I don't HAVE to wear a slip!" My favorite thing to wear was plaids and stripped clothes together. As long as the colors matched what was the problem? That question can be answered by my sister :)

For now I am off to get something done even though I don't feel like it. Maybe tomorrow I will and then I can play instead of work.....
