    Yes where has the time gone, can hardly believe it is September already and Halloween is less than 60 days away. Football has begun. Christmas will be here before we know it.

    Speaking of Christmas......what do you have on you Christmas list to make??? I haven't even thought of what I am going to give this year.

    Welcome Newcomers. If you have not sent me a private message or I sent you pne please do so for the mailing address. Thank you.

    How about one month it be Batiks. I love purple! we could do a purple and green month. Flowers in the spring. maybe one month can be bright kid themed fabrics. Another could be soft, sweet baby themed fabrics. One month could be blender/tone on tone type fabrics. Black and white another month.
    Just some ideas

    What a great loss Countryhousequilter!! Congratulations!!!!!
    I need to get back to eating better and try to get some exercise. I still can't walk very well, but if I was good, I could get on my stationery bike and ride......
    I hope to start back at working out in the pool once it opens back up next week. Maybe if some of you could hound me on that!!! I can walk in a pool, that doesn't hurt the foot quite so much
    My machine is still in the hospital. I have only done a little bit of sewing on my old Pfaff. I do hope to get some sewing in maybe later today. We'll see. DH is home today and tomorrow so I may not get a lot of sewing in, depending on what he wants to do.

    Gail, I'm surprised riding an exercise bike wasn't part of your therapy. It was for me. I got my flowers in pots watered, but the yellow jackets didn't think I should deadhead the petunias. I compromised. I did the big ones and ignores the little Wave petunias that the wasps seemed to prefer. I don't know why those are marketed as self cleaning. I've always had to deadhead them.

    I changed my brunch to baked acorn squash with almonds. It is almost done, so I'll check in later - and yes, Lily stayed away from the bad corner. Smart furgirl!

    Edit: I like the idea of batiks - there is no such thing as too many of those, I like florals, I like blenders a lot, I like the purple /green, but would combine the kid's prints and baby prints. I personally don't have a big need for either, so one month combined would work, IMO.

    At therapy, which I have been 3 times now, they do put me on a recumbent bike for 6 minutes

    Gayle, I'm glad you're at least thinking of doing more to get your foot back working right. I was on a walker for a week when I had surgery on my big toe and then only allowed to walk from the bed to the couch to the bathroom for the second week. After that, I could do whatever my foot would allow. It's been 5 months now and I'm pretty much back to normal. Keep up the therapy and you'll do well
    I like Gayle's idea of the batiks, blenders, purples (my favorite color) and agree again with Irishrose to combine the baby and kids prints. Everyone celebrates some type of holiday - how about pick one holiday (no matter what month) and that type fabric is the fabric de jour.
    I've been in a blue funk the past few days and haven't been paying much attention to what I eat - or what I'm cooking to eat. Need to snap out of it and start back in with the 'good' stuff. Keep healthy eveyone.

    My PT person was a slave driver - but a sweet one. He had me in therapy twice a week - he wanted three times, but it was too much because I was working and managing school halls in a wheelchair is tiring. I had to ride the big Schwinn Airdyne at home every day for 20 minutes and then I had floor exercises with bands, too. The director of PT had to come out of his office because the others didn't know what to do with me. I 'fired' them anyway because all three said 'never' or 'can't' to me and me feet and ankles weren't allowed to hear that.

    Vanogay, this is a wonderful time of year to eat 'the good stuff'. Farm markets are full of it. It make me unhappy when Michigan based supermarkets are full of California produce when ours is so much better just because it's fresh and not picked early to transport. Can't go to my favorite farm market today. I live in a tourist area and the traffic will be backed up for 1 mile where I need to turn left.

    The acorn squash was lunch was yummy and filling.

    I'm glad you had a good lunch Irishrose. The produce we've been eating is really local - I walk outside and pick something. Tonight, I had some pork and beans (not good, I know) with a turkey burger (no bread) and some cottage cheese and tomatoes fresh from the garden. Washed it down with decaf tea. Still didn't make me feel better, but at least the diet was good.
    Have a great week everyone - eat healthy.

    Greetings everyone! I'm reading the thread this month and working at loosing the weight that I gained on vacation. #5 to go and then I'll be back - so thinking Oct. will be a good goal for me.

    Welcome to all you newcomers!!! And a big CONGRATULATIONS to our August winner. Yes, I'm the one who says "treat yourself good or be good to YOU". My DD has now gone vegan so am trying to eat as healthy as she is but got a call yesterday that my Dad was in the hospital in AZ. (I'm a stress eater - today it was Diet Coke, which I know is not good for me.) His second request to his friend was "don't call my kids". So we are working around it by calling the care center he has been at. He's a very STUBBORN German and at 91 won't change. He went in with chest pain, but they found something on his lung, so treating it with antibodics (sp) and we'll see what happens. My Mom is adjusting to the memory unit better than I am. She seems content, but the Alzheimers has really progressed. She didn't know my brother last week, which hurt both of us. Life ....

    Yes we bought the house/property in Michigan and will retire there in the next 2 - 5 years. Going out again the end of Oct and hoping to take a load of "stuff" along, as we will be cleaning and getting it ready for renting. I actualy am looking forward to the move, now it depends on DH's retirement and how Mom is doing.

    For Christmas this year I plan on making a lot of the Spicy Swirl table runners in shades of red and green. I have fabric selected for one, but if I have enough fabric, I might make two right away. Did finish a Christmas throw for a SIL and took it to Michigan when we were there in August. That way I didn't have to pay the postage, and she can put it out before the holiday and enjoy it.

    Better find something for supper. The zucchini and cukes are producing great. Made a double batch of salsa last week and probably will have to do another batch this week.

    Take care everyone and remember - be good to YOU.

    It's not the years in your life that count. It's the LIFE, in your years. (Abe Lincoln)

    I'm in for September. I was down 2 pounds for August. KInda surprised it was that much. I am a stress eater and my stress level has been thru the roof. I have even been clenching my teeth in my sleep and waking up with sore jaws. I have been wearing my mouth guard again. It has been a while since I had to wear it. I am working on destressing my life. MY son and daughter in law are home in Japan. My oldest daughter is moved out of town. Youngest daughter is moved across town. I am back to work but looking for a new job. I applied for 4 last week. Hopefully I will get one of them. There has been way too much going on around here. My daughter is trying to sell her house and one of their cars. I have been showing them both to people. Usually I handle stress a lot better. I'm not sure why it is making me so nuts right now.
    I decided it was time to do something for me. I joined a gym and hired a personal trainer. He set me up with a plan and I meet with him again in 2 weeks to add more and see how I am doing. I joined Planet Fitness. It is inexpensive and I get free as many visits with a personal trainer as I want. I know the exercise will help with the stress too.
    Congratulations countryhousequilter on your great loss

    I'm in for September. I just realized I needed to get on the new thread. Busy times lately. I was in Texas for 2 weeks. I now feel like our house is ready to show even though it has been on the market for 3 months. I really think that if I could have gone down earlier to get it ready it would have sold by now. It looks great!. Hubby and I drove a rented moving truck with some of our stuff this weekend. That was not fun. I think I gained 3 lbs over the weekend. I am carrying so much fluid. My legs are really bad. We got hubby moved into his apartment. Well, he finished it up today when he took some more furniture and the cats. Yes, he took the cats to live in the apartment. They make me pretty miserable since I am allergic. I can't wait to get the house all clean from their fur and see if I can feel better.
    Congrats to countryhousequilter!
