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.

A post of mumblings...sort of

You will have no doubt noticed a sad lack of blog postings from this neck of the woods.  

Oh.  

You didn't?

Really?

Well then,  I suppose you won't be much interested in reading my mumblings today.  Perhaps cleaning the toilet is more fun, and if that's the case, you're excused.  I promise I won't get my feelings hurt.

1.  Part of the reason for my absence was our lending assistance in the grand move of our #1 son and d-i-love from an apartment to the new house.  We managed to deliver both them and their two cats to the new abode, leaving the rest of the moving in the capable hands of the pros.  

2.  Another part of the reason is that I've been busily polishing and finishing the soon-to-be-published 'BOOK'.  Now before you go and get all excited that I'm about to be found on the best seller lists, I have to tell you that the subject matter of the 'BOOK' isn't the stuff that best sellers are made of.  Some of my long-time readers may remember that I published book #1 ('Self Doing Naught') back in 2010.  It was a transcript of the daily diaries of my 2x great grandfather and his life on the farm dating back to the 1800's.  The current book ('Did Little But the Chores') is a continuation on the same theme with the original author being my great uncle and dating to the early 1900's.  There are over 500 pages in this book.  It took awhile.  There will be over 500 pages in book #3.  It, too, will take awhile. 

3.  The pile of to-do projects is in imminent danger of topping over, so.... one teddy bear has been cut out and is ready to put together, along with four baby bibs.  Funny, the pile doesn't seem to have diminished any.

Today the quote is from Ernest Holmes...  "Life is a mirror and will reflect back to the thinker what he things into it"

That's a lot of busy!! The book sounds interesting. Makes me remember that my grandmother was born in 1884. I often wonder what Chicago was like the year she was born.

Wow, a book! You are one busy lady. We have been moving youngest daughter back home to begin her first "real" career. Exciting times.

Moving anyone anywhere is always a major undertaking....ugh. It's always fine once it's done and dusted. It's just the doing of it that I dislike:)
