Winter Break!

Thank you all so much for the birthday wishes! I spent a wonderful day shopping with my husband and Cade! Later, we met Joey out for a delicious supper! I didnt buy any fabric but I stocked up on my favorite hand quilting needles and another thimble that I love!! I also got a new camera that I am still trying to figure out how to use! It was sad not getting to see my daughter for my birthday but I talked to her many times!

My dryer decided to break down for my birthday! It is about 20 years old and the drum shifts from time to time. The repair is simple and the man who fixes it says that we wont be able to buy one that will be as good as this one so to keep it til it can't be fixed. Getting it out of my house is a big headache. My little laundry room is so small that we have to move the washer to get the dryer out. The guy fixes it overnight so we just leave the washer and everything that is kept in the laundry room in the middle of my kitchen! What a mess! "We" also let the washer hose slip which spilled water into some clean kitty litter so now I am waiting to put everything back so that I can mop this messy floor!!

I am excitied about Heidi's Friday Night Sew In! I am trying to decide on what all to work on. Saturday, I am taking a redwork class so that is exciting too!
We are still enjoying watching the Olympics at night. We all stayed up late to watch Shaun White win his gold in the half pipe!

I made a Red Velvet Cake for my birthday. (i am trying to load a picture grrr) It turned out pretty good in fact, it was good enough that I will send the leftovers to the Fire Dept. so that I don't eat it all up!! Well, blogger is taking too long I will try to load the picture up later!

This post seems very, very boring so if you are still reading til the end...I really thank you for hanging in!
Have a great day,

Glad you had a wonderful birthday!!! WOOHOO for a new camera!!!! That red velvet cake sounds delicious...YUM! I'm sure the guys at the Fire Dept. will enjoy it too.

Sorry your dryer broke down but happy for you that it is a simple repair. I agree with the repairman...use it till it dies a BIG death!!

It was so GREAT that Lindsey Vonn and Shaun White BOTH got gold medals for the USA.....GO USA!!!! Enjoy your day.♥

Hi Libby
Not a boring post I loved hearing all about whats up and whats not up...and oh dear I can imagine what a mess you have with the kitty litter. Geez...goes to figure eh?

Too bad about your washing machine. I am happy that wasn't your birthday present. Nice that you have a new camera. We shall be looking for new pictures ... your cake sounds yummy.

I hope you have all your work done and that you are having some time to relax and have fun...and work on your Sew In. That sounds like fun.

Not boring at all! It was a nice "visit". Sorry about your dryer.
I am excited about the Sew In too....I have the grandkids overnight, so I am going to be limited. I had planned to start at 5pm....told Sweetheart he could feed everyone frozen pizza and that I wanted to be left was a plan. Then I remembered it was my Friday with the kids. Now I will plan to start after Emerson is in bed around 7:30 and maybe I will have to hand quilt the Sew In instead of doing the machine work I had planned. I think I will set Saturday for my machine day.
