No More

Due to other interests and things that take up my time, I am giving up this blog.  I just haven't blogged like I thought I would.

Well, I did it. I made a 10K this afternoon. It was mostly walking with some running, but the main thing is I made it all the way. It only took me 1 hour and 45 minutes. I am really tired tonight and will be in bed very shortly.

Work again tomorrow. Monday comes around way too soon.

Went to the Movies

Last night I went to the movies and saw a show on Blogging, Julie and Julia. When you combine blogging and cooking in one show, it was a very good show.

It got me to thinking about blogging and decided to see if I could find time to do a little more.
Thursday I found a bargain of a camera. I paid $45 for a 10.1 megapixal with extra batteries, an SD card and all the cords and books that came with it. Today I am playing with it and trying to learn more about it. Here are some sample pictures.

As you can see, it is just a test of the camera. I think it is a very good picture of Charlie, an OK one of a foot if that is your interest, a typical kitchen counter, and a very messy sewing room. One of the many things on my todo list is clean up and organize my sewing room.
Enough for now, I need to pay bills.

The Weekend

Here I am, home early on a Friday afternoon. I decided to spend a little time playing games and blogging on the computer before going up to sew and going to my doctor's appointment. I am also going to see my dear friend Barb who is home after 4 days in the hospital.

I am making lap quilts for 3 kids that lost everything in a house fire. I have 1 almost done, the fabric purchased for the second one and have no idea what to do for the 3rd. Girls are definitely easier to choose fabrics for than boys.

I have been having problems getting to the point so I could share my happenings. I work on computers for a living and this website was not working for me. Well here I am at last.

My latest quilting project is actually 3 in one. Three preteens, 1 boy about 11 or 12 and 2 girls, twins, age 9, lost their home a few weeks ago. I am in the process of making them each a lap quilt. I will try to remember to do pictures when I get them done.

The latest other thing in my life is running. My daughter challenged me to do a 10k with her then end of September. It has been so humid that it has been very hard to run. Wish me luck.

Things are changing in my method of doing things. I have decided this blog will come first and then some of the other things I do on line. I will start tonight with my adventures in to running.

Sunday Evening

Ok, I have a new challenge to myself. "I will blog at least 1 time each week." Sometimes it is hard to keep up with everything on my plate.

This week we leave on Wednesday for Annual Conference, be back on Sunday. Then we leave on 6/19 for a family reunion in Las Vegas. What fun that will be!
I would like to introduce Charlie. Chalies is my 3 year old labradoodle. He is laying on a quilt I made for my spouse, Yellow Brick Road pattern.
He keeps me company on long car rides and kept my feet warm this winter when quilting or sleeping.
As I get more practice at this I will try to include more pictures and introduce our other 2 dogs. It is about time for bed. Tomorrow is another busy work day.
