Sunday June 13th

Boy this had been one of those weeks. First of all it was my last work week untill next august so that was a good thing. but I can sure tell that I am getting olddddddd. After crawling around inside those darn ovens trying to clean them friday by the time I got up saturday morning I could hardly move. Finally gave in and took a muscle relaxer and the rest of the day went better" at least for my bodys aches and pains.
Remember the zig zag quilt that I posted for my granddaughter? wellll one of my good friends emailed me and said Linda did you know that you had one of the rows turned around in your quilt or did you meant for it to be that way? Ohhhhhhhhhhh noooooooo definately not! sooooooo I spent the next hour or so ripping out the seams and putting it back together the right way. I was so glad that she let me know now before I decided to quilt the darn thing.
I also started a patriotic table runner from one of my groups. Do you know how sometimes the simplest projects can turn into a nitemare" welllll this was one of those projects. I put it all together very quickly but decided after looking at it that I really didn't like it. sooooo I decided to change the edges to a pointed runner instead of a long square one. That looked much better. But after putting it up on my design wall I still wasent't happy with it and decided it was because of the way they layed out the colors in the flag. it wasen't just red white and blue but red blue white red so it was off too me" soooooo you guessed it" I tore the whole thing apart once again and put it all back to gether the way I thought it would look good. welllllll would you believe that after I hung it back up" I discovered that one of the ends was backwards which would have meant taking it completely apart once again and by that time I really was not interested in this project any longerrrrr. Do any of you have days like this! normally I am smart enough that when things are not going my way " to walk away and come back later but not this time.
I have decided that since this is my first weekend a free woman (from work that is) that I would bake some apple bread which I did yestarday and today I am going to make some bisquits and sausage gravy. (definately not weight watcher material ) but its what I happen to be in the mood for. may have to walk it all off later.
Hubby was out in the veggie garden while I was pulling weeds in the flower garden and he brought in some more cukes. He had to take a picture and insisted on laying a ruler next too them. He could not believe how big they got. last year for some odd reason we grew little cukes but this years batch has definately made up for it.
Well I think I am going to go see what kind of trouble I can get into today. take care untill next time.
