Happy B-day Sissy! (a day late: )

Aunt Patty's B-day was yesterday .I won't say how old ( We've all lost count anyway hee hee)
She shares the day with Jay Leno and Saddam Hussein . I mentioned that to someone and they said well that proves horoscopes are bull. I replied "actually she and Saddam are a lot alike both are evil" And some think Jay's evil ,like Conan hee hee hee. Just kidding sis: )
I ordered a plant for her I know she likes to get hanging plants for her b-day and Mother's Day because she has a large porch where she likes to hang them. She called this morning to tell me it was delivered yesterday right on time. Thanks Burpee!

My Little Angels

My great grandsons Lucas and Jordan. Paula and Damian are kinda stingy with the pictures but here's a resent . They look so much alike , two little peas in a pod. They have Paula's black hair and Damian's blue eyes .Their going to be heart breakers in a few years.

And a couple picture's of Zack after his spring grooming. He's tired from our walk here. The first picture he's looks up at me and the camera The second one he just lays his head down disinterested.
Since the weathers warmed up I've given up Curves and instead been walking Zack two miles a day. I didn't loose any weight at Curves just built up my shoulders and arms. Yuk, not a look I want! My goal was to tone up and slim down not look like look Lou Ferrigno.

Say It Ain't So??



A couple nights ago I had a dream that the family room flooded again. Well guess what? At least this time it wasn't sewer water just rain water from the foundation,Thank god we caught it before we put in the new carpet. The construction Co, says it's a broke or slipped tile fairly easy to fix.
Just for fun I went to the Mad Man cartoon site and made cartoons of me and sis. Well it's the way we dressed in the 50's. Now it's just hoodies and jeans Sis is in the pink I'm in the blue. I wish I could have had sis carrying a crochet hook instead of a cup. hee hee hee

Getting There.









The construction company was here yesterday and took out all the old dry wall and paneling. Today their putting up new dry wall I ran down and took some pictures before they started.
The first pictures are my sewing room.It used to be the grand children's playroom but after they got to old for it I made it my sewing room. If you click to enlarge it you'll see it has apple tree wall paper and a house and apple tree border. It was over due for redecorating .

Globle Warming?








Or maybe not. I don't really know but I always think lets error on the side of caution .
Anyhoo we've had a really early spring this year many of the flowers blooming are three weeks early. The neighborhood is beautiful with all the blooms. I walk Zack everyday so took my camera today and took some pictures. You know it's spring when you see a hop-scotch game on the side walk.

Quilting With Cats.

Here's the first block I made for Cheri's friend's quilt. I've made two more since but haven't taken a picture yet.
My sewing room was one of the rooms damaged in the flood so I sat up a place to sew upstairs.As soon as the cats saw it they had to join me. I normally don't let them in my sewing room because of the hair factor but they were so happy to join me I didn't have heart to chase them off. Peanut kept moving so close to my cutting I was afraid I might slice his tail off with my rotary cutter, but we made it through without incident.

Gone Quilting!






I was in my usual Spring cleaning frenzy when we had the sewer back up. Like my mom I like to go into each room and clean it completely ,scrub floors ,dust down wall ,clean windows ,wash everything washable and dust everything not. I had finished one bed room even painted and bought new curtains . Then Alas the flood stopped me in my tracks . The basement and family room are immaculate of course thanks to Service Master but still waiting for the new carpet and dry wall. In the meantime everything that that goes down there is up stairs bringing my cleaning to a screeching halt. So I'm putting my cleaning on hold and I'm going to just sew!
I've been agonizing over carpet colors. Here's the samples I've been looking at.The first one is my old carpet (the darker one) and the little one on top is my new choice. Then two pictures of my one cleaned bedroom. That's just an old Kitty quilt on the bed I want to get a new comforter . I have yet to clean the window but think I'll hire Service Master to do them all at once.
PS- Almost forgot my sweet granddaughter Milisa and her young man Jason painted the whole room for me. Thanks guys! Great Job!

The Big Flood!






Yuk, We've lived in our house for thirty years never had a problem until last week and we got a sewer back up flood in our family room and basement. Our house is a bi-level so we're living in the up stairs while the basement and family room are in repair. State Farm was very prompt in getting Service Master out here getting things cleaned up ,sanitized and hauled away. Now we wait for new drywall and carpet. Lucky we got our new furniture out before the water go to it.
Some pixs of the mess. Here Brent and Mick came over to move the furniture. A couple of the water one of George in his recliner as the water creeps toward him. And one of the boys annoying their father after moving the furniture up stairs.
