Apparently my husband has been using MY computer. I only know this because he must have been reading the local newspaper on-line and every section he read opened a new window. So I was going through closing windows and discovered he’d read the page that shows who has been arrested and thrown in the clink. (Small town. Big news. You know.) So I’m trying to think of a reason why he would be interested. Was he afraid he’d see himself there? Well that’s a big NO, unless you can be arrested because you haven’t kept up with the times and don’t know how to fire up a computer. It wouldn’t be to check on the children because ours are obviously above average (grin) as well as kind to small animals. Well, they are!
So I’m scrolling down the page and the more I see, the more frightened I’m getting. Had there been children in the room, I’d have covered their eyes. I didn’t even have to read the charges against some of them. They deserved to be arrested for their bad hair. Seriously, if I know someone is pointing a camera at me, I at least TRY to fluff my hair a little. Don’t you? Some of the “clients” look sad or mad or sleepy or, or, or, drunk! Yes, indeed. Some of them even look startled. Like they are surprised to be there? But the best picture of all was a young man with a mile-wide smile (not smirk) on his face. I mean even his eyes look happy. It’s like he just won the lottery or something, and frankly, if you’re in jail I don’t think lottery is what I’d be thinking. But I really am happy that he’s happy. It’s always good to have a positive attitude, don’t you think?
Well then. Onward and upward. Let’s see. I dedicate this first set of pictures to all my friends who feel deprived because they don’t have all that beautiful snow to look at. I’ve heard of such places such as Texas, Florida, Australia and many, many more who have bleak, snow-less yet sun-filled winters. Enjoy! But you’d better not be laughing!
I needed a path to the birdfeeders so my Mr. is making me one with the walk-behind snow blower. Isn’t that a nice, clean trail?
You might notice that he’s pushing down on the handles so the front end goes up to reach the snow. It didn’t work, the snow was too deep for the snow blower. He did later go in with the tractor & blower and made a path. Which is not to say that I can feed the birds without getting my boots full of snow.
If you park at my DIL’s clinic in town (or anywhere else in town), you might see the above as you park…….
or you might see the below from my living room window……
Let me repeat myself. If I hear any of you laughing at our snow pictures, I’m going to truck it on over to your yard! Don’t think I won’t.
The next couple pictures are Crap I’ve Made:
Now it’s Prairie Woman’s Sewing Circle…the first quilt is called at Mama’s Knee by Ms. Gail, Ms. Joan and Ms. Denise (smaller of course)
Dueling Quilters (below)
You know, Ms. Gail & Ms. Denise are normally very reserved in their demeanor. I just happened to catch them when they were both talking at the same time. It’s probably never happened before. And the sun probably rises in the west! I’m just sayin’.
Isn’t this a great quilt? Mary Ellen whipped this up one evening. I would think it would take longer than that to make. Maybe it was one month. Oh, heck, I don’t know how long it took. I do know that it was a stunner.
Speaking of stunners, Ms. Joan showed this awesome little number. For as much as she heckles the teacher in class, perhaps this would make a nice gift to the teacher as a show of genuine, heartfelt appreciation? Think about it Joan.
Moving on to Loose Threads. This month we decided to make a Cancer quilt. Quilts don’t get cancer but people do and if a quilt that we’ve made will help someone fighting cancer feel the love & prayers we sewed into the quilt, we’ll be very, very happy. This quilt already has a home waiting for it so it’s ready to go to the quilter.
Work, work, work.
These are 4 of the 8 suspects making the quilt. Pretty good for a one day effort.
Jean had previously knit some cute little kids caps so she is trying her hand at miniaturizing it to fit an American Girl doll. Dang cute!
I suppose I’d better go out to the garage and polish the shovels. It’s supposed to snow again tomorrow & the next day also. Then for fun, the stupid weatherman said we may enjoy minus 30 degree weather for a bit. Someone should take out a contract on the weatherman.
WHOA! STOP! DO NOT CONTACT THE FBI, THE CIA OR THE ELCA. THAT WAS NOT A THREAT AGAINST THE WEATHERMAN. IT WAS A JOKE. SHEESH!
