    Well I was gonna tell ya'll about puttin' a bid in on a new house that is in a nicer part o' town & has 1 acre w/it. We started talkin' ta the realitor & all the talk o' preapproval's, back & forth bids & we have kinda backed off a bit. It brought all the memories o' tryin' ta buy the house a couple o' years ago. That turned inta a nightmare. I have an epidural tamarrow. So we should wait a bit. We will be able ta DMIL's financial adviser in the next few days. No since in jumpin' too fast. Our finances are so much different (better) than they were 2 years ago but it gits a bit scary.

    Wait for the next gust of wind; it will come. What will be, will be, the future is not ours to see.

    Mirabelle, beautiful work.

    As the days roll into months and the months into years that are flying by all to soon, celebrate each day; once here, this day does not come again....waste not, want not...use every second of everyday wisely... love and be loved.

    Anael ... I made the pie tonight. Halved the ingredients. And sadly did not have any coconut to add for some pizzazz to it! Another time!!! Of course, you know that OKSGlad and I, as dairy farmers *shudder* when we see/hear the M word!!

    Honchey ... when I redid my kitchen at the farm I had my first experience with propane, and bought a cooktop, based on the salesman's advice. Oh how I soon learned the perils of cleaning it. When I came to this house, experience had been a good teacher. I knew I wanted gas, and did some serious shopping to make it as easy to clean as possible. I ended up with a stainless steel cooktop and a very simple grid plate, to simplify the cleaning. I've loved it!! And would you believe, I've never had Boston Cream Pie! Your stew smells oh so good .... I always do mine in the crockpot, so I don't have to watch it, and I know it'll be perfect!

    QNSue ... so nice to see the "we" word as the two of you work together with your new machine!! Looking forward to seeing the finished projects. Your Amish cookbook ... is it the "More With Less" book. It's a favourite of mine and a go to for delicious good ol' fashioned cooking!

    MiraB ... My goodness ... look at your incredible quilting. So detailed, even in the narrow border. And so many different FMQ designs. Can't wait to see the whole thing! I can't help but wonder if you ever stop to breathe?

    DublB ... ditto to MiraB's "if it's meant to happen, it will ...".
    Good Luck tomorrow.


    I ended up WORKing today ... and as I did so, I did laundry, baked, etc.
    I'll likely be heading out of town tomorrow for a few days ... partly WORK, partly play!
    So if you think I am AWOL .... you now know why, in case I forget to say it later!

    You'll just have to be sure to get back to NC when those blueberries ripen
    .. and not let the birdies feat on them!

    A very hardy beef stew that you can see what you are eating Looks great.

    I am truly green-eyed over the blueberries...they are so nicely green healthy plants producing fruit!!

    A road trip, QuiltE, you will be missed here!

    I won't be able to eat the berries because of the insecticide that was used in the ground for termite prevention...they're too close to the house...I will have to move the plants for hopefully next years crop...and I'll be adding a few more bushes maybe in a raised bed this fall..until then they'll be in enormous pots..

    Honchey ... With the insecticide in the ground ... does it transmit to the berry itself? Definitely get them moved, so you can enjoy them next year.



    QNSue ... for sure I'll be gone part of the week, just not sure yet, whether I'll leave tmro/Monday or when? And yes, road trip, but this time, there'll be no FART!

    QuiltE, on the internet I read shortening refers to M and seldom to B as it is more closely related to M.

    Honchey, your stew looks delicious!
    What will happen to the birds when they eat your blue berries?

    Bev, sorry it didn't work out this time. One day it will

    QuiltE, you will be missed, have a save trip!

    Oh Mirabelle - another great job with your beautiful quilting.

    Dublb - good luck tomorrow!

    My hubby has been coughing, running a high fever and feeling rotten for two days. I finally took him to the ER as no Urgent Care places were open on Sunday. He has Pneumonia!!! He got a shot and some pills. He has to see our GP tomorrow. When it rains it pours!

    The ServPro people are moving all the living room and dining room furniture out tomorrow and will start there demolition of my kitchen. We are suppose to have showers the next few days, hope that won't hinder their work!

    The only good news for today was that I got my PC Quilt all sandwiched.

    Mirabelle, totally forgot to say I LOVE your quilting! How long have you been practicing?

    Jeanie, sorry your hubby is ill! I hope he'll feel better very soon!

    I wish your dh a speedy recovery, Jeanie. Take time to take care of yourself, too.

    Honchey, it is better to be safe than sorry. Plants do absorb minerals in the soil; some stuff they use for termites are not harmful to pets or people...but only your company you used would know for sure.

    QuiltE, you may have to look up that USA song "On the road again". Bf and I tease one another about it; seems at least 50% when we talk to one another, one of us is on the road to town.

    Yesterday the guardian angels were working overtime here...dh used his propane torch to light the furnace in the garage at 8:30 am; opened the garage doors about ten; when I used the West door to come in at three pm, the gas furnace was still going strong with the garage doors open. So I turned it off, and still heard gas burning, and looked over to his work counter and there sat his propane torch lighter, burning strong gas flame which I quickly turned off. We really cannot afford to heat up the outside or rebuild our home after it burns down. He simply forgot about it. Like he forgets the electric stove burner is on that he used; he does sit the pans off the burner now, when he finishes cooking. It scares me to think what could have happened. Thank goodness it did not; this time.

    It's a good thing nothing happened QNS except waisting money on gas. But that's nothing compared to your house burned down!

    I have a quiche in the oven, have to eat early as I have a meeting tonight with a group of mentally challenged people. We start early, 6.30 pm, meaning I will be home early too
    Tomorrow night I have another meeting with another group, they start at 7.30 pm so not that early.

    The weather is still nice, tomorrow another warm day and starting Wednesday temperatures are going down again. Tomorrow in the afternoon it's going to rain So no more outside, back to sewing

    More precious photos for us, thank you Anael.

    QNS thank goodness you found it in time, so scary to think what might have happened.

    I only have 3 sides of the border left to quilt and I hope to get the binding on today so I can sit and sew it down before Thursday, this has taken me longer than I thought.

    Anael I am still practising some days I get it right and sometimes I don't.

    I am off to the Post Office to post my May MB, its a week early but as everyone has received their April block I thought I would start May off early. Where is it going I hear you ask, well only the fairies know

    I got my epidural th'smornin'. They gave me "conscious sedation." The last time I had this done I didn't remember the procedure but this time I do. It only took about 5 min.s. I felt some pressure but no pain. I came home & slept for 4 hours. LOL

    I hope you get the relief the last one gave you dublb! I'm glad it was painless, that is a blessing!

    Thanks Jeanie! I put some ice on it for some o' the swellin' & am so happy. I already don't hurt as much as I was yesterday. I'm a bit restless taday but haven't found anythin' ta concentrate on very much. I did git one o' the crazy blocks in the mail that is part o' the "Crazy Block RR" that I'm doin' on another forum. I used my embroidery machine ta add some stuff ta it. I have a whole month ta work on it but I'm already through. I think I'll send it on, so that there is some space left for the next person ta do stuff ta it. If it stays here I'll just do more.

    QNS...so glad that you're safe!! It's so easy to forget the little things which can escalate to disaster at our age. I've left the gas stove burning a few times but being in the house and throwing heat, it was discovered in time too. I used to live in a retirement village and all of the heating and cooking was electric. Makes so much sense for safety!!
    Jeanie....hope your DH gets well soon. Are you anywhere near the California fires? Keeping my fingers crossed for you too that nothing else pops up in the remodel and it gets done in a timely manner.
    Anael....hard to imagine that the twins were so premature when you see them now. They must be getting close to going home. Good looking cooking too!
    Honchey....you might check with the local ag extension agent about the blueberries. The plants might filter out the insecticide. They sure look good! I love Blueberries.
    Dubib....sorry the house didn't work out but look at it this way....you don't have the work of moving! I'm glad you're feeling better.
    i have garden work to do but it looks rainy so I'll do a little sewing this morning. Finally got started on a quilt for my new DGS. It will be scrappy!
