Arrived back home late yesterday morning – it was really a fast trip home when you think of how you can spend all day in an airport at times. I left Newport News at 7 Eastern time and got back to Little Rock AR in central time at 11:30 AM – one short layover and so glad the flight arrived early to NC as I might have missed the flight otherwise.
I got very little done in the line of sewing while at my sister’s place – the lighting just wasn’t good and she doesn’t like a lot of lights on when watching tv – so I just went with it and put it aside most of the time. I will have plenty of time now to get back to my routine and make progress.
I did get the hexies out last night for a short while but barely accomplished anything – LOL – I was just too tired, had not slept well the night before – I guess knowing you need to be at an airport around 5 in the morning will do it to you – I’m always afraid I will over sleep. Linking to Love, Laugh, Quilt today and Em’s Scrapbag.
A jar of dark chocolates were waiting for me – love these and Mike knows it – I was down to my last couple pieces so this was a welcome surprise.
And some of you want to know if work was done on the sewing room while I was gone – yes – the carpet is torn out and the room is a mess! Has to be for progress to be made.
the other side – the closet is about ripped out too – not quite all of it – have to get a support beam – it is a load bearing wall – so a beam of some sort will go in. Two different types of wood on the floor because at one time this was not a bedroom – way before our time half of it was a storage room of some type and half of it a tiny back porch – hence the problems with the floor sagging in places. Taking this closet out will extend the room and give us 3 more feet of space to use.
Some of you may have read the blog “Empty Nest But Full Heart” and some of you remember that Kathy found out she had ovarian cancer last year – Kathy died January 16th and word is beginning to spread now to her blog readers. Kathy and I used to correspond on a very regular basis and had a several years long blogging friendship. In the last six months as she got worse I would occasionally hear from, she sent me a note around Christmas and then again right afterwards telling me she was loosing the battle and had come to terms with it and then I heard no more. We as bloggers correspond with so many but most times our families have no idea who all we are chatting with and so we normally never hear what happens when someone stops blogging. Wouldn’t it be nice if we all had a designated person who could update our readers if something happened to us. Something to think about! Think about having a family member or friend have access to your blog for something like that.
I should be getting back into a regular routine this week and hope to get back to my daily blogging. Thanks to all of you for following along while I visited my sister in Williamsburg VA — she was doing so well – here I thought I was going out to help her in her recovery from surgery for a brain tumor and there she showed up to pick me up at the airport driving the car herself just 3 weeks after surgery. We shopped, laughed, reminisced of years gone by – visited, cooked, and took long walks. I know it was not the usual blog post and I found that the photos messed up again – depending on what device you use the photos might have been sideways – sorry about that ! I think I need to give up trying to blog on the Iphone or the Ipad – don’t know why the photos do that. I do believe Mike fixed it all for me late in the day yesterday.
