New Week

Have you ever wanted to start your week over to see if it will improve? Have you ever hunted for something that you thought you knew right where it was at? 
My week didn't start off very good on Monday. I came home to find my hubby having a low blood sugar, which meant some fast reaction on my part to get it brought back up which we did, but it always scares the daylight out of me. 
I did get my table runner done. I just need to get my pictures taken so I can show all of you. I started my vintage snow people. I am trying to get a variety of tea towels done right now with a craft show coming up. I have a baby quilt done except for doing some outlining, but I misplaced my pattern. I will find it, but it will take some time. I laid it up because  I ran out of the thread I needed to finish it and haven't been to either Hobby Lobby or Joanne's to get it. 
We did go to my college roommate's 50th anniversary. She was so shocked that I made the drive, but the weather wasn't bad and we take a drive on the weekend if the weather is permitting. We just don't know where we are going. We will get together later and really have a chat to catch up with one and another. We do keep in touch at Christmas time. 
I hadn't seen her sisters for a long time either. The temperature was in the low 50's and cloudy. I thought we might run into rain, but we didn't.
My youngest grandson is supporting a couple of black eyes and a skinned up nose. He ran into a pole at school. He was running on the playground and not watching where he was going. It will be pretty for  a few days while the bruising changes colors. It didn't slow him down any. 
The grandsons keep us busy with all of the things that they are involved in. We have the pine wood derby coming up the 26th of January. I told him that grandma would come and watch. 
Well hoping tomorrow will bring a better day, but if the weather man is right we should have some snow, just don't know how much. I hope you all are having a good week.

Hi Shirley!
I'm sorry to read about your hubby's little episode...that would scare the beejeebers out of me! I'm also sorry to read about your Grandson running into the pole...my oldest son ran into a tree while we were all playing in the yard when he was about 8. He was bruised up for weeks the poor boy. Have fun working on your quilt. Sounds as though we may have the same weather as you tomorrow with a slight chance of snow in the evening. I'll believe it when we see it though...we're still in a drought here even though we got some rain a while back. Keep warm and stay safe!

Shirley, sweetie, I am exhausted reading all that you are getting done. It brings the work person out in me and gives me motivation. Wow, you have been busy.
Your hubby will be fine, although I know something like that is scary. I am sorry for the bruises and bumps of the little one. That too will heal.
I am excited to see your finished projects, your work is so beautiful. Have a much improved week Shirley and be safe,

I love books as well and can loose myself for hours just thumbing through them...wondering who has read them before. Hope by now your week is better......just goes to show you "it;s always something!"
