Plenty Going On!


There is always plenty going on in my world… never dull for sure! The husband and I have a routine every morning.. Early risers we are! Alarms generally start going off at 4 a.m. The two of us make the bed – pulling back the sheets and 2 quilts that keep us warm all night. Every time we go in to work together, this is our practice. The bed had never been left unmade by the two of us when we have left the house for work in the 14 years we have been in our home.

So, we have been busy, and perhaps a bit more tired than usual. But, neither one of us heard alarm clocks this morning! 5 minutes after we were supposed to leave the house is when we woke up! Yikes. We have never done this before!

Crumpled quilts will be waiting for us! They did not get pulled up into place! These pillows did not get put up on the bed:

The pillows were a recent finish that came mostly from the scrap bin!

The good news is that we managed to get ourselves together, gather lunches and feed the animals before leaving. And, nobody was late!

Last Saturday there was a last minute trip to Racine to the Sew n’ Save. Luanne had something to pick up, and I most readily agreed to go along when she asked.  A few treasures came home to live in my stash. Necessary? Not so much! Do I have a plan for them? Absolutely not!

Then there was this cute block to hold my Clover Thread Cutter –

And a pin for my collection..


Here’s to lots of coffee today!

  1. What a lovely ritual you two have nearly every morning! Your beautiful quilts not only keep you warm but they also bring a husband and wife together lovingly performing a simple task.
