September is Almost Gone!

Where has this year gone?! I haven't accomplished anything. Quilt still in the frame...since April 2007. I want it out, but don't want to sit and finish...just have three rows to go. I did get the ironing (yuck) completed so I can see the quilt again. I tend to drape DH's shirts over the quilt frame as I take them out of the dryer fully intending to attack them before the day is over. I don't think I've ironed since before we went on the cruise. LOL It's a good thing that he has some perm-press shirts hanging in his closet. My philosophy is...he was ironing his own shirts before we married...if he gets down to his white t-shirts, he can start ironing again. ;o) I ironed...but only because I purchased a blouse on clearance at Dillard's that has to be ironed. The quilt frame is cleared off. I need to tilt it to a working position and "git 'er done." Perhaps tomorrow.

That blouse from Dillard's...I gave $14 for it. I didn't pay any attention to the original price until I cut the tags off. $59!!! That is fifty-nine dollars!!!! For a blouse!!! Made from cotton with buttons up the front!!! What is this world coming to when a b l o u s e costs that much money?! No wonder I made those blouses a few years back...

I also haven't gotten to ride my new bike either! It's almost one month old, and I've only put 38 miles on it. After riding that day, Hurricane Ike did his thing. Then I worked a 40-hour week at the public library while the librarian was on vacation. (Small town, one-person library.) It nearly killed me. It's been five years since I put in a 40-hour work least one outside the home that actually paid. This past week I have had a monster cold. I spent most of the week sleeping. Thursday was a good day; Friday was horrible - again.

On the positive side, I have been knitting a second match the one I finished last spring. As soon as it is completed, I'll make a run to the library for some audio books...she got some new ones in...then get back on the quilt. The temp this morning was 60 degrees! I may need it to add to the covers on my bed!

Son Has Power

How do I know? He left a comment on my Scuppernong Jelly post that he'll take some jelly along with the salsa! LOL

He finally gets to sleep under an air conditioner!! Praise the Lord!
