Will it ever be done???

Yesterday I spent the entire afternoon getting the layers stretched and t-pinned to the floor, then I got it pin-basted.  Maybe one of these days I will actually start the quilting.  I want to keep my sewing machine free till after Thanksgiving so in case daughter and I get a chance to sew, we can.  It has always taken me a while to finish things but now it takes me forever to do anything.

More furbabies...

Click to enlarge....look at that Otti....he is aging so.  It breaks my heart to see it.  That link in the first sentence will take you back through posts showing him.  He could not be a better dog...nothing could be improved.  In my opinion.  He loves his family, loves their friends, so good with kids that you could not ask for more.  Lorelei has climbed on him, laid on him, slept on him....put him in her wagon....he just let her and any of her friends do anything they wanted.

As I have told before, he don't meet a stranger.  He has got on the UPS truck one time...wanted to go for a ride.  Another time, he tried to get on the school bus with all the kids.  And then just this Halloween, he got out the front door, and tried to get in this truck...with complete strangers.  They yelled at the guy to not open his door just in time...I think he did get tickled though cause he saw how bad Otto wanted to go.

Their neighborhood is full of kids at Halloween so the streets are full, and everyone is going slow, so there was no danger. 

Rosie is a pistol...she trembles with joy when any family member comes...she loves so intensely.  She goes from one to the other of us when several of us come in at the same time.  At some point I usually have her in my lap and she lays back with her belly up to be rubbed.

Busy times...


Lorelei spent the night last night, and did not go home till the afternoon...she wanted to go to the park last night.


I took her but was so cold we only stayed about 20-25 minutes.  She was fine, but I was freezing.


She told me that people at school that didn't know her name just called her Monkey...because she is always hanging on the monkey bars.  She told me 'That's okay.....I just take it as a compliment.'


She is growing up much too quick....

It has been kind of hectic the past few weeks...I even forgot I had an appt. for a haircut this afternoon!

It is not that I have had so many things to do, but the hoops I had to jump through to get a few things done.  Two things were prescriptions, and I am still waiting on one.  But it is out of my hands.  One doctor was supposed to get Roger an appt. with a pulmonologist, and I waited a week and a half and no word...so, I just got an appt with our family dr....that was Wed. and the appt has done been made....of course it is not until January of next year.  But still...at least one is made.

And that is only part of what has been going on...it has really made me think about stopping blogging completely.  But for now I will carry on a bit longer and see how things go.

Recognizable....

I think most people know this is the Gateway Arch in St. Louis, Missouri...it stands 630 ft. tall...we passed by it when there but did not attempt to go up.  I don't know why, but it did not even cross my mind.  Daughter just took us down to the area because she works near it.

This is one of the churches we passed...beautiful, impressive churches were everywhere, but I did not get any good photos...

Another shot, not so good...but you get the idea.

I hope to post another one or two in the days to come....
