Here it is the first Thursday of the new year. I have not yet been to work this week, so am faced with trying to get 15 hours of work done in 5 hours. We all know that's not possible, so either some things won't get done or I'll be working tomorrow too. I usually try to never work on Monday's or Fridays. Remember, this is a part time job with flexible hours. That is why I took it. Flexible hours. I am anti-schedule.
We still have a couple of inches of snow on the ground - nothing compared to my friends "back east". But it is enough to hinder my fine feathered friends. They will get fed this morning before I leave!
Last night the church quilters were back at it after a two week Holiday break. We put in a new quilt. Ironically, it is a beautiful Christmas quilt. Think we might get it done in time for next Christmas? I would hope so. A quilt usually takes us a month or two. We only have 6 quilters. Three quilt 2 hours on Tuesday morings, and 3 of us quilt for 2 hours on Wednesday evenings. It is hard for me to get motivated to leave the house when the temperatures are below freezing and snow is on the ground. But I'm always glad I do. Last night there were four of us. After putting the new quilt in, we stitched and talked. The conversation flowed about family and celebrations and the weather. None of us broached topic of the political world. I don't think we wanted to upset the ease of the evening. We were thrilled when our two more experienced and faster quilters were able "to roll". That is always a good feeling to be able to roll the quilt before heading home.
Well, Whiskey is warming my lap, but that is soon to change. Many things to do today. I will leave you with a quote from one of my favorite authors:
