After taking him to the casino, we came the long way home. Then stopped at the grocery store so he could get his supper. He also had me stop and get a latte for him and a chai for me.
When I finally got home, I started working on the cross stitch for awhile. Decided I would give it one more day before getting back to quilting. I need to take out the purple flower. When I get to the point that I need to take something out, I really have to be in the mood. lol Not there yet. lol
Had some help holding onto my threads. Charlie just has to be on my lap no matter what. Patrick tells me I need to kick her off. Guess I just love having her around, I can't do that. If she really gets in the way, then I move her till she decides to move away. It works. But I just loved this! She's a cutie at times.
By the time I was ready to write this, I had this much more done. It's coming along great. I love the way this is coming along. Who knows, I may decide to work on the basket blocks tonight. This is a project that needs to be done, so I can start another, so if I keep working off and on on this, it will help.
Finally, after three weeks or more, I asked Patrick what happened to the replacement bulb for my Ott-light. He was a sweetie and went looking. By the time I was done with my exercises for my back and shoulder, he had the bulb in and turned it on. Now I have enough light to work at night. Don't know why I didn't ask sooner. I had actually been looking for it for two days. Seems I've been absent minded more times then I would like to admit!
As each day goes by, I'm still trying to get more done, but I seem to be helping everyone else before I help myself. I need to learn to say, "no, can't do that." The older people in my life think they can throw pitty their way and I'll do what they would like. Actually that seems to work. Patrick thinks I should just tell everyone NO. Find excuses.....but I think of excuses as lies. I don't like telling lies. I'm working on it! I'll get there! In the meantime, Happy Quilting!
