Sunday Snippets

It’s a beautiful fall morning here at Casa de Ortega. I rather like the fall back time change. Mr. O has a toasty fire going for us and pumpkin spice creamer in my coffee. Nice. Miss Bella is up and at ’em, too.


Every time I see the blog post of that sweet little Dog Gone Cute quilt that several bloggers have been doing as a quilt along, I’m reminded of our silly girl. She looks like she could have been a model for the pattern, don’t you think?


My Prince and I made a quick trip to Amarillo yesterday, for a little shopping and a couple errands. We haven’t been able to make a quick little getaway like that for about three months, due to his work schedule. Some heavy rainfall in our area slowed things down enough that he could safely take the Saturday off. It’s a two hour drive just to get there and we had to be back home around 7:00 pm to see the little g-babies in their costumes and spoil them with treats. But, the limited time went so fast, we never made it to anyplace other than the mall. We even had our Halloween lunch date there and took a silly selfie. 😀


One of the items we did get marked off the agenda yesterday was to purchase some new pillows. We both have neck, shoulder and back pains, and often wake up stiff and sore feeling. We decided to go to a sleep store, and have a trained sales associate help us in the pillow selection process. We both felt better this morning upon waking, and are hopeful that this was a good investment. I don’t mind spending the extra money for a good night’s sleep and better physical health with less pain. That would definitely be worth it!

Today, I’m goimg to throw some country style ribs in the crock pot and make Dr. Pepper ribs. Another tasty recipe easily found with a Google search or in Pinterest.  I have laundry and household chores to do, and  will take my parents some chicken salad I mixed up for us and for them. And, I hope hope hope I get some stitching time. I’m setting a couple small goals for myself for November.

I want to finish baby C’s quilt, and it’s way past time to get the binding stitching done on this king size quilt I made a couple years ago.


This will be finished ASAP! Miss Bella seems to want to help!


That’s a wrap for now! I have stitching to do! 😀
