That leaves me. It is almost 3 PM. I am not yet dressed...Why bother at this time of day. I did do a load of wash and made a list of things I need to do now that I am retired. Most of the items on the list involve cleaning and tossing. I did a little but now....I think I need to rest. I am reading a fluff book, so I think I will do that and have another cup of coffee. Tomorrow is another day!

It was good to be together this session. We have all shared in the sadness over losing Jackson. I found comfort in being with all of the Thimbles and I hope and believe that Andy and Pat did as well. We all know what quilters mean to each other. We are there for the good times as well as the awful times. And I do beleive that our Thimble group has and will continue to do that.
I am heading into my last week of work. Last week one day I felt a little sad. Now not so much. I am ready to walk away. I am ready to retire. I am ready to not wake up, get dressed and head out the door to deal with "stuff"! And this will be the last Sunday afternoon that I mourn the end of the weekend.

No the gun-toting Momma in the picture is me being silly. I only have a few days left to make my mark. Today I signed up for supplemental insurance and my Medicare D Rolling right along!

I got the block done but it did not come out right and I could not figure out what I did wrong. So I started again this morning at dark thirty I think I figured it out. I will have to check it out with Peggy. It makes good use of scraps. I have a container with strips and I pulled those out as well as leftovers from the last swap. More to follow!

I am resting on my latest acquisiton. I think she said it is called Roll Roll Cotton Boll..whatever that means. I hope that Lily knows that this one is much nicer than the quilt that Mom made for her.

My friend Pat (the Supreme Head Thimble) wrote a blog about being normal a few days ago. Check out Silver Thimble Talk- she is one funny lady but not really normal. I laughed so hard I cried. It was too funny. At any rate, I make no claim to being one of the "normal" ones. Take this morning, for instance. I had to make a run to Publix because I had to have a BLT. I had some B but no L or T. I needed a few other things as well. I usually shop on "old people's day" for the discount but since the freezer is kind of bare, off I went.
I got some lovely tomatoes and lettuce, and a few other things I needed and a few that I didn't need. I am putting my stuff into the car and there in the cart I spot a piece of lavender fabric. It looks like maybe a four inch square. Hmmm......would a "normal" person pick it up? I did and put it right back in the cart. Junky fabric, not worthy of becoming part of a quilt.
And now back home. The BLT was excellent
