Where Did My Week Go?

It's Thursday, how did that happen, yesterday was Monday wasn't it?  Little things ate my week:  a Doctor's appointment in Savannah so they could blind me with bright lights and then tell me I'm not blind, well in a couple of hours I wasn't.
Cleaned the computer room and it stayed clean for about 60 seconds and wore me out for hours.
Painted a flower pot to plant my gloxinia in.
Finished my apron, but it's a Christmas one and now I'll have to make a regular one.
Started a small Christmas quilt, yes I know Christmas is over, but Christmas fabric is on sale so I'm taking advantage of that.
Tried to figure out how to make a cover for my bread maker, I am not good at visualizing things and I can't find a pattern to make one.  So far I've wasted about 1/2 yard of material, but I may be able to use that to make a pattern.
Exercised twice, walked every day and tried to play a bit more piano, Beethoven and I have gone a few rounds, so far I'd say he's ahead, but then he's had more practice than me.
The weather has been good here, mainly in the 70's with a bit of rain yesterday, so I've been raking pine straw in the front yard, almost finished, but I'm sure more will fall.
And that's how I got to Thursday before I knew it.


  1. yes you have been keeping busy!
    I like the idea of the Christmas Quilt, thats forward planning for you.

  2. I like that you are getting ahead and planning for Christmas 2012. Just like the week zooming by, the months do likewise.

    Have a great weekend

  3. Hah--several tries to access your comment box--always nasty little gremlins.
    WHY is it that spaces laboriously cleaned immediately return to untidiness?
    Rhetorical question [sigh] I suppose some of us are just mess-makers!
    Since the comments feature is being so quirky, I'll reply here to several of your recent blogs:
    Re sugary tea: I'm content with quite basic tea--I put honey in it, no milk [arrgh.] Coffee was a learned taste--just one cup per day in the morning. J. has suddenly decided he shouldn't be drinking it, so I get the coffee maker out only occasionally.
    Where has this week gone? I've been wallowing in the thought of where my whole life has gone---with retirement has finally come the realization of more years behind me than lie ahead. Have to make the most of them!

  4. But mostly fun things happened - except perhaps the eye doctor. You're way ahead of the game for Christmas! Good for you.

  5. Wow! You've been busy, I feel tired just reading about your week. I love the plant pot, your painting has made it so pretty.

  6. So right re Christmas fabric...I'm going to make a Christmas tree skirt next week.

    Christmas isn't going to sneek up on me again this year.



Tuesday in the Swamp

Summer has arrived here in the swamp with temperatures in the 90's and afternoon thunderstorms.  Sunday we went down the road to the Mar...
