Here it is Thursday already again – how does that happen? Weather report for North Iowa – just beautiful weather, warm temps for this time of year and sunny days with the disturbing forecast of NO rain. I hate to mow the grass if it isn’t going to rain soon.
This is camp week – just 4 quilters so we’re meeting in the classroom which is very fun for Connie and me. We love to watch our campers crank out the quilts! From left to right: Pat, Jennifer, Mary Beth and Cathy.
I’m still cleaning up houseplants and trying to do a couple every day. I have so many that I’ve started over the summer that need the grow light in the basement, so I may put some down there until they are established.
Before I left for Columbus, Pam (white calico cat) had an abscess on her cheek which finally began draining right before I left. When I came home the abscess had moved down her neck and drained again. I tried to get her to the vet for a shot of antibiotics but I couldn’t get her in a carrier. They gave me pills to give her which I can’t begin to get into her mouth! Then I thought it was over – last night she came in and her whole face is so swollen on the left side, it’s almost closing her eye. Now what to do? I would make a poor veterinarian – I can’t even get a pill down this cat.
And here is what you do NOT want to find in your closet, sleeping on your clothes! Tammy Wammy has made herself right at home on top of my sweaters. And because I didn’t shoo her off, either I’m crazy or I love her or both – ha!
Its $5 quilt day this Saturday so we hope to see all of you who are participating. And don’t forget Connie’s UFO game! It’s Number 12 this month and mine was punchneedle which I finished before we went to Columbus. The only one I have not finished is the stair treads for the playhouse – but I’m not giving up yet. I have only 2 more to make.
And then there’s the Geek Squad who was here to hook up our new TV. After two visits and much trouble from Direct TV, the “agent” was pressed for time to get to his next appointment. I asked for some instruction on the Smart TV and after about 2 questions, he said to me “Why did you even want a Smart TV is it’s going to be too much for you?” I wrote it down word for word and said I had to go back to work. I’m sure I’ll get an opinion survey and I believe I will include his remark.

Just for Laughs
Three old guys are out walking.
First one says, ‘Windy, isn’t it?’
Second one says, ‘No it’s Thursday!’
Third one says, ‘So am I. Let’s go get a beer…’
