Sunday Chat – Turkey Trot, Christmas Reading and Happy Mail

It has been a fun holiday weekend. Thursday was football and food, chatting with friends online and on the phone. Friday brought out the sappy little Christmas movies, leading off with Miracle on 34th Street as I packed up all the autumn and Thanksgiving decor, and brought out the Christmas boxes. I pulled my table …

Sunday Chat – Garden, Birds, Books & QOV

Last week I showed you my Thanksgiving cactus, and it continued to put out more blooms. Several more golden yellow ones appeared, along with many more pink and red. These flowers are just so interesting in their forms. Here's a look at the underside. I do marvel at the intensity of the colors. Near the …

A Month of Great Books

Lots of other things going on in the past month, with Autumn Jubilee plus more car club events and more, so reading time was a bit more sparse. If it wasn't for the early morning hours, I wouldn't get much reading done. But four books for today's reviews are spectacular, all highly recommended with one …

Books for Autumn Jubilee

Reading fiction, and playing with project books is fun when the weather turns chilly. Cooler days mean wearing cozy sweaters, bowls of hot soup, a crackling fire, and a good book. I like reading fiction books set in the fall season at this time. It is also a good time to look at project books …

Book Reviews – Two Great Ones, Two OK Beach Reads.

For your Labor Day enjoyment, I have a few book reviews from the past few weeks worth of reading. Two books in a row were just OK, not the stellar reads I thought they might be based on other reviews. Then, two books that were so good, they made up for the mediocre ones. One …

Sunday Chat – Book Reviews and the Garden

In the garden this week, the apricot gladiolas have come into full bloom. There are a bunch of them dotted over the mountainside behind our home. Some, I think, were planted by the previous owners of this house, but some must be squirrel planted as there are more of them every year. I have dug …

A bit of this and that

I did manage to get a bit of sewing time this week to make a couple of sunglasses cases. My Sweet Babboo had taken me shopping for some extra pairs of sunglasses to keep in the cars. He doesn't want to have to turn around every time I forget the ones I usually have with …

Book Reviews, Projects and My Dinosaur Status

So many things to chat about today! Several projects were made this week, with specific purposes in mind. First, a dear friend is moving away, and I wanted to make her a special card. It will have a little gift inside. The card is a trifold, with stamped thread spools on the front with ribbon …

A Few Book Reviews

I have been really busy lately, focused on My Sweet Babboo's recovery while doing the last publicity chores for the quilt show this past week. I also organized our longarm booth and hurriedly finished off the quilts and cards I wanted to sell, so I've had precious little time to read. This week has been …

Sunday Reading and Book Reviews

I usually take a book with me just about everywhere I go. I can get a few pages in while waiting for My Sweet Babboo to get something from the hardware store, or while waiting for my grocery pickup order to come out. I like to read in the early morning quiet as well, and …
