We are well and hope everyone is doing well, too. Brother seems to be recuperating well and getting a bit feisty following his surgery on the 31st. . . Boy O.....you had best take it easy!
Chet is a bit sad - Colts lost last night! But I'm sure there's another football game on today that may perk him up! He's been watching the auto auctions on the Speed Channels - surprising how much some of those cars are going for - hard to believe there is an economic crunch! (Grinning here!)
Belated B'day wishes go to Sister Mona - I have taken a photo of your gift - I will mail it tomorrow. We have a gazillion steps to climb to get into the post office and I avoid going there as much as possible. (I even buy my postage stamps at the grocery store.) I really do have a gift for you - see - it's the Pot Of Flowers, I do hope you can find a spot for it in your home. And of course I'll toss in a surprise, too!
My sewing is keeping me occupied - I ended the year by starting another project. Gotta get that stash used up soon and I'm proud to say, it really is going down. I can get the covers on most of the Rubbermaid containers now! I finished this Pioneer Braid quilt on New Years Day. It is a fairly good size quilt, about 60 x 80. My latest project is making "Happy Blocks" for donation quilts - problem is, I'm not too happy with mine. So I need to do some rethinking and see if I can come up with some happier blocks!
Tori & Tia spent a week at Mark's house and we visited and had supper with them on Thursday. Mark made a lasagna and Texas toast - pretty good fixings for a bachelor! He had a pot of chili that he was tired of eating, so sent a couple of meals home with us. That too, was pretty tasty. The girls are growing into such beautiful young ladies. Tori is a senior and Tia is a sophomore - both say they are "good students"! (And I'm sure they are!)
Chatted with our out of state kids over the holidays. Tracy's two are in Florida with their father for a week. Not sure but I think Mitch and family visited with Di's family for the holidays - her siblings are in Cincinnati and Louisville - hope they had decent travels.
This week will be kind of busy for me. We lost a friend and will go to her visitation and then I'm visiting a quilt guild in a neighboring city Wednesday; this group goes out to lunch and then we will "visit" a quilt shop. Should be an interesting day.
Till next week - take care now.
