MAGPIE'S MUMBLINGS

A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Good things & boredom

Please note, that title is just a thinly-disguised way of saying I have no pictures, so I'm about to mumble. Just thought I'd warn you!

Today was spent getting groceries and running general errands. I hate getting groceries. By the time I've taken each item off the shelf, into the cart, onto the check out counter, into a bag, into the car, out of the car, into the house, out of the bags, onto the shelves - I'm heartily sick and tired of the whole process. (see, I told you I was going to mumble!)

The next 'project' is to backhoe out my studio so that Jacquie and I can sew tomorrow afternoon. I really need to learn to put things away as I finish with them. I think I do that, but why then does the studio get into such a shambles on such a regular basis?

Would you believe I have a Christmas present already purchased, AND the makings ready for another one which I hope to start tomorrow? Yeah, I can't believe it either.

For those of you who have been following the 'Odin eye removal' saga - he's doing great. It certainly hasn't changed his exhuberant personality and he's the same silly dog as before.

We had a weekend of lovely spring-like weather and then woke up this morning to discover that we'd had freezing rain and about an inch of snow overnight. Sigh. Have I ever mentioned how much I dislike winter?

I think (shhhh, don't say it too loud) that we're getting over the 'disease' we've had. My dad is still coughing quite a bit, but Jack and I seem to be getting back to normal. Hesitate to say it though, for fear it comes back to bite us.

There, is that enough mumbling for one day? Have a good one!

Glad you are back to normal...whatever that is.
