Just Another Day

Well, today could be interesting…but let’s hope not.  I just checked the weather forecast, and we are in for possible severe thunderstorms with possible large hail.  DH & I own the local glass & garage door shop.  He is already so busy, and we can’t seem to keep good workers.  The local oilfield industry is booming again, and we can’t compete with the wages they pay.  I am just trying to get myself together to get to work this morning.  I am so tired, and my shoulder, and various other bones are just so achy today.  I really do think that I have fybromyalgia, though I haven’t been officially diagnosed.  This week has been a tough week, physically, but I’m pushing through.

For those that are, and have been, regular readers of my first blog…be looking for more caterpillar updates in the upcoming days.

On the subject of quilting, I got the binding and tag sewn to the blue & yellow log cabin, and have almost one side stiched down, by hand, on the back.  I think I will make it by Monday!  Actually, it needs to be a little sooner, as I want to give them both a wash before delivering them to my friend.  I’m going to have a hard  time parting with the blue & yellow one, but what will I do with a baby quilt?  Then the next thing to check off my “must get to and get done” list, is a customer top.  Need to get that quilted up, a panto, and delivered back to it’s owner.  She is a new customer and this will be my first, hopefully not my last, job for her.

 Now I must finish my coffee, get dressed, and drag myself off, very reluctantly, to my day job.  Have a great day!

  1. I think you should put your quilt bindings right up there high on the list lol… I’ll keep you in my thoughts through the storms. You’ve had more than your share of those this year. Can’t wait for the updates. I was laughing trying to figure out just which one of my plants was dill this week. 😀


  2. Isn’t it funny, how so many people you have never met IRL, can become so much a part of your daily life? Do you know how often I now think of Jan D when I go to make a pot of coffee?


  3. ROTFL…. true so true… when I was taking pics for Judy of the sunflower I just kept thinking now what would Randi do with this 😀


  4. Randi, your day should be over or at least just about by now and you are home to do what you need to do there. I hope the bad storms held off.
    You may just have to make a larger blue and yellow log cabin for yourself and put the BF on it. It sure would look nice!


  5. Hey! It’s Randi! I must go add you to my Blogroll! And my Google Reader….

    I hope the weather didn’t treat you too badly today. Take care of yourself!


  6. Hi Suzanne! Glad you found me! I’m still finding my way around here, but I spent some time looking at your pretty quilts on your blog today. I have a lot of catching up to do on yours! 🙂


  7. Randi – I have fibromyalgia – it’s a real pain – but you can live with it and quilt with it. Mine became much better when I was able to retire from the “real” world and reduce my stress level.
