    Good morning what are you doing today

    Good morning all (it is 6.30 am here on Friday 14th) I have Friday's off work and I have lots and lots planned for my day off - maybe I would be better off at work - I sit down all day and get paid - LOL.

    Firstly I have kicked hubby out of bed and stripped all the bedding off and it is in the wash. I am having a check of the QB - that is how I start each day - next off to sweep down the garden paths. Grab some breakfast and then onto cleaning down the window sills and polish my furniture. Jump into the shower then I am meeting 3 girlfriends for lunch. When I get home I hope to get sometime to do some sewing.

    Whatever you do enjoy and have fun. I look forward to hearing about your day.

    Then some sewing......no wait.......gotta take photos of gifts I made.
    then onto sewing.........no forgot........Gotta box up the presents for shipping.
    Now onto sewing..........no wait......Finish addressing the Christmas cards to be mailed.

    Sneak into the sewing room......NOPE......nap time.......LOL

    Have a wonderful day!

    It's Thursday, 12/13 here in Florida. I'm working for another 45 minutes, then I'm going home to feed my pets, have my dinner, sew up a couple of gifts and get them wrapped and boxed up to mail tomorrow. I can't wait to get to my sewing machine.

    I'm still at work for another 45 minutes, then home, do a few chores. After I fix a bit for dinner, then I will start putting my D9P Quilt together. Hope to get it ready for quilting by Sunday. We are having some roof work done and cleaning too much will be a waste of time. I may decide to bake some cookies.

    It was Thursday, the 13th here all day!! I spent the morning on the computer visiting various sites to check out sales. Does anyone else put stuff in their "shopping carts", let it sit there for a while so you won't impulse buy???

    Was sunny today so thought I might get out a while. Felt I needed a nap to have shopping energy. Woke up at 5:30 and convinced myself, it could wait until tomorrow!! Now back on computer....

    Oh Rose Marie - snow how pretty. That is something that I never see here in Sydney. I would love to see a piccie please.

    What did you end up with in your shopping cart Nanamoms?

    Tartan you are very good to mend socks. Something that I must confess I have never done.

    I hope that you finished all those jobs on your list Chasing Hawk. Sewing always seems to take back seat.

    I hope that you finished the quilting and safe travels QuiltnNan.

    Happy sewing Jingle and Annthreecats - I never feel motivated to sew of a night after work. I think because I stare at a computer screen day my eyes do not seem to want to adjust to finer work. I often knit squares for Wrap with Love while I watch TV.

    It is now 6.30 am on Saturday morning and we are having our family Christmas day tomorrow. Our DIL's parents live 5 hours drive from Sydney and so my son and DIL are heading out there for Christmas day this year. Every second year we bring our family day forward. Today I am going to cook the turkey - that only leaves the vegies to be tackled tomorrow morning. Not my favourite job peeling all those potatoes and pumpkin.

    Our family still has a traditional hot Christmas lunch - turkey , baked vegies, peas, gravy and cranberry sauce followed by Christmas pudding and custard. Even though the weather is quite hot there is nothing left on the plates.

    Better get myself into gear and wrap those last minute gifts - I still have the binding to do on one tabletopper before I can wrap it.

    Have a good day and enjoy whatever you do.

    I am responding Saturday morning. Watching the reports of the horrific tragedy in CT. I can't pray hard enough or long enough for all the victims

    If you have energy left over, come visit me! We are done decorating, but I do need to get in my sewing room and clean a path through it.

    It is nice to read about what you are doing each day.

    Yesterday (Friday for you) was such a tragedy - my heart goes out to all those involved in such a shocking and senseless act.

    It is now 5.30 am Sunday morning and I am about to tackle peeling 5 kilos ( approx 12 pounds) of potatoes and a large pumpkin. It is going to be a hot day here -30 degrees celsius that equates to around 90 degress in fahrenheit.

    Have a good day and enjoy whatever you do.

    It is noon here in backwoods California. We got about an inch of snow last night but the temp is still hovering around freezing although it has been a warm autumn until now. My shop is in the garage, heated by a pellet stove which doesn't seem to want to light. I am procrastinating because I should check the chimney for dead birds/summer bird's nests before lighting it and sewing that one last doll for my grand daughter. Warm weather? Australia? Only 90? Sounds good right now.

    Our "early" family Christmas day was lovely yesterday. Lots of of fun, laughter and food. My heavens I think that DH and I will be eating Christmas dinner every night this week.

    I am heading off to work today for a rest - LOL.

    Have a good day and enjoy whatever you do.

    Today is Sunday, we have several inches of newly falling snow. And I am inside full of antibiotics, I acquired a UTI late last week.
    So today I am lounging around the house recuperating.

    You are going to have to explain to me what mustache quilts are please. I have never heard the term before.

    Off to work I go today only 3 days left before the place closes down for annual break. We return on Tuesday 8th Jan.

    Have a good day and enjoy whatever you do.

    It is going to be quite a hot day here today - it is just after 6 am and it is already 80 degrees fahrenheit with a hot wind blowing. My hibiscus flowers are enjoying the warmth.
