On Being thankful...

This is going to seem to be a crazy 'thankful' post once you have read it all.  First, let me say that I am really thankful that spring is near.  We have enjoyed shirt sleeve weather here this week.

I am really thankful to still have Roger here with me.  He started out having a good week, but yesterday evening he started feeling weird.  He did not say anything till he went to bed...so I took his blood pressure.  It was okay.

This morning he got up and still felt the same.  Every morn he wants to go to Hardee's or McDonald's for coffee and a breakfast sandwich.  It is seldom that we don't go somewhere of the morn...we maybe stay home once a week.  Anyway, I told him I planned to stay home...but in a little bit he asked me if we could go...that he just needed to be out and be around people.  So we went.  I know that he can feel a bit normal out like that.  Where everyone is just sitting, enjoying a little break.

He felt weird all day till late this evening and he felt better for a while, but is back now to feeling weird.

We have been doing a lot of other stuff, so don't know if that has run him down...it did not seem to at the time, but maybe it all caught up with him.  It is just so hard to see him feel like this.   And very hard for me to blog and do anything normal...but I keep making myself.

A song remembered...

I was laying in bed, talking with Lorelei last night...and this song crossed my mind.  It was never a hit, or anything but always one of my favorite songs by the Eagles...

A bit of this and that...

First, new blocks I don't think I have posted on here...
and here...
and here...
I am just using random fabrics...some scraps, some not.

2.  I record Live From Dennison Lodge every week...they feature a new to me music artist every week.  Last night I started to listen to Ray Bonneville after Roger had done gone to bed...I listened to half a dozen notes and stopped because I knew Roger would like him...so tonight we listened...I was right Roger did really like him and I found a new song that I just love called Lone Freighter's Wail.

I have looked to try to find the lyrics...but no luck.  But oh, my, I do love this song.  The words are just so lonesome if you listen to them.  The music even has a lonesome quality to it.

3.  How about a something funny from Steve Harvey:


4.  as well as some funny family feud from back in the day:

I really debated on using this since the quality of the video is so bad, but have laughed myself silly with them.

5.  It has  been a good day...oldest daughter came, and we went to Arthur, Illinois.  She added to her fabric collection and I brought home 3 or 4 more.  I have done begun cutting them.

Thankful Thursday

I am thankful that I got my daughter's quilt finished last week.  She chose the fabrics, chose the pattern, together we made the top, and I pin-basted and quilted it. We made the top in May, and I started the pin-basting and quilting some time after she left.

Then Roger had his stroke August 2 and I did not get to quilt any on it for at least 3 months...and then only a line or two here and there.  And that was machine quilting.

I am thankful that I took Roger to the strip pits yesterday and let him try driving...he did okay there.  Not ready for a busy city by any means...

And I am so very thankful that my older daughter now lives about 3½ hours away.
