1st day off this week.  Got laundry done and worked on pillowcases while loads were going.  Our thermometer on the porch read 76 but it was in the sun.  It did get really warm today so we could prop the door to the screened porch open for the cats.  Dogs enjoyed their walk but were panting by the time we got back -- winter coats and all.  :o(  Brushed them when we got back to the yard.  They are so bad - they sit down when you try to do their "back ends".  Then they wonder why the get knots back there.  They look so nice when I can get their "feathers" all brushed out pretty but you have to hold them up so they can't sit down to do it. 

Tomorrow i will tackle my first pillow for the cat tower.  I will probably cut the foam rubber out in the shed since the piece David brought me is huge!

I think both Dave and Todd are finally on the mend.  Both have been fighting terrible colds.  Todd - being stubborn - went in to work Sat. and Sun.  when he probably should have stayed home in bed!  He did sound 100% better when I talked to him this afternoon.  Dave felt well enough after lunch to walk out to the mailboxes.  At lest he didn't get all crazy and go hacking down privet.

So did Kris, Pat and Marie go to a quilt shop?????? 

No Marge. We stayed in. We had our own shop right there at the house.

my gosh, it has taken forever to get through all the posts.  everyone is doing such wonderful work.

marge, not many short plump people ski.  they make boots to fit the standard foot and leg.  i'm special.  it took 4 nice guys, i.e., ski hunks ( marie maybe you should take up ski boot shopping, this was quite fun) 2 days, of playing with, er, handling, uh, measuring and observing my feet and legs before they figured out how to deconstruct then build me a boot. 

i'm jealous of you three getting to spend the day together.  

barbara,  your FM skill are incredible, you should be very proud of yourself. 

we spent the weekend in seattle with our daughter and boyfriend.  her MIL  introduced her as the "vessel carrying  grandchild"  which didn't sit too well with her.   i thought it was funny.  it's hard for me to be on my best behavior with her.    it's like walking through a verbal landmind when i'm with her,  anyway, serendipitously, the "vessel"  was having an ultrasound the day after we got there, i got to attend, she is beautiful,  and we are having another granddaughter.   the two names they are toying with i like.  elza, after my grandmother or eira (pronounced ira)  no middle name, they thought maybe she could pick her own middle name down the road.   

we had to go to seattle for a funeral,  we lost one very lovely lady  and friend to ovarian cancer, i know she is now lighting up heaven with her smile.  

then i got sick, bronchitis, so we left as early as we could on sunday so we didn't further infect "the vessel".  she's going to be pretty unhappy with me if  she gets it.   we got home sunday and sam planned a dinner party on monday.  korean / sushi, sam made most of the kim chees, and they were really good, however, i have now infected half of sandpoint, oh well.   this morning sam started coming down with it, decided to go skiing to work it off and came home in terrible shape, the dummkopf, then cracked a rib or pulled a muscle coughing.  

as soon as he is better i will get the pictures of the  kids'  quilts on here.   they did pretty good at the auction.

Yesterday we woke to 56 degrees and rain, today 31 and snow.  Gotta love Iowa!  I have a dentist appt, but they are talking 3 to 7 inches, thinking it won't be worth it.  Also supposed to bowl, again, not worth it.  All the schools are closed and since it rained yesterday I am sure the roads are not going to be good.  Hoping I can at least get to Dr. tomorrow for blood work . . .

DH went to work, nothing stops that man!  He hasn't let me know if he has gotten there yet, but sometimes he has to put out "fires" as soon as he gets there.

Will try to quilt, the sun isn't out, so harder for me to see the marks to quilt.  Well, everyone feel better, stay safe and have a fantastic day!!!
