Something happened on Wed. after the memorial service that has never happened to me before. My brothers teased me when we were out to dinner. They pick on each other all the time and they always picked on my sisters who could give it as well a... Read more

just plain being lazy and only doing exactly what I felt like. I enjoyed my ribs and spoetzle left over from last nights trip to the restaurant and I'll have one more meal tomorrow. This is a place us kids always loved to be able to get ... Read more

My mother's memorial service was very nice today. The little church volunteered by my cousins was wonderful to all of us and a great help. I didn't even need to deal with the caterers or any of that. And they completely cleaned up the kitchen... Read more

Baking always makes me feel better. Too bad I enjoy eating it so much. There are some chocolate brownies with buttercream frosting and some very simple orange angle food cupcakes. My SIL also ordered a couple of lemon merigine pies (because ... Read more

I was up really early this morning to get the keys in to my brothers so they could finish putting mom's things in the trailer to get them ready for auction. But I came right home and climbed back into bed. About 10 the phone started. I swear ... Read more

I did make several more wonky squares and even worked on a block of the month square but my biggest sewing achievement was a house block. Took a long time with lots and lots of color changes and it is not perfect. But here it is. ... Read more

Decided I needed to get the sewing machine I'm taking to my daughter over to the quilt store because it needs a little tune up. But then I had a little retail therapy while I was there. This is going to sound kind of weird. But I saw a quilt... Read more

I did my normal Fri. morning stuff. Got up early and went off to get my hair done. I even put on decent clothes. Usually if I'm not leaving town I'll just run in leggings and a t-shirt. But I knew I had plans to go order the lunch for mom's ... Read more

After a fairly good nights sleep I was up and getting along pretty good this morning and then about 3 this afternoon it hits again. What am I supposed to be doing? How am I going to do this? Not even the what if's have happened just those dum... Read more

One of my brothers is not happy with me because I called the church my cousin gave me the name of and he wanted it to be his job. So he's going to go have the meeting with the pastor. Instead of me having to drive so far. He's the one that is... Read more

I know I'll get thru it and the closer it gets to June 26 the happier I'll be because that is the day I'm leaving to go see my grand kids. But until then there are going to be some pretty empty days. Tomorrow BooBoo goes to her new home ... Read more

Tomorrow I still have several phone calls to make and plans that need firming up along with notices to be sent...but I think that maybe on Wed. I won't have to think too much about a memorial service or any more of that kind of thing. I'm... Read more

but my car is full of her mother's things and I made my brothers take home the chairs that belonged to my mom's great grandfather. Now I have to figure out who gets some of this stuff and get it shipped off to them. Maybe I'll just carry the t... Read more

I got to stay home and did manage to sew, clean and do laundry but all that was between phone calls from well meaning people checking to see if I was OK. For me that is the hardest thing. How can I say to people that love me and I'm reli... Read more

Today when I went to pet mom's cat and feed it and pick up the antique lamp the nurse came into her room with a booklet for me to read. I stuck it in my purse to be able to read it when I was home and not trying to do other things. So I ... Read more
