This past Tuesday, Heather and I were going to the pet store...for some reason Eddie thought he needed more food! LOL It had been sprinkling to a light rain and was also a sunny and cloudy day here...really odd day. Well as we are going along and trying to figure out where to have dinner I looked in the sky and there was a gorgeous we keep watching and there was the the other end....we could see the entire rainbow including the arch. And the colors were all visible and bright. Well we didn't have the camera with us...but while we were stopped at a red light I remembered my cell phone has a camera so I snapped a shot of part of the rainbow. It was awesome, neither one of us remember every being able to see the violet like we could on this one. Picture isn't the best but you get the idea!

Took Heather shopping!

Heather asked me earlier if I would like to buy her some I said alright lets run up to Kohl's. Well in her opinion all they had were Granny Panties! LOL So we headed off to Target and much to her dismay they only had Granny Panties as well. I then asked her what are you looking for and where do you usually get them??? She says oh I want such and such and I always find them at Penneys! LOL So off we go to Penneys and low and behold they had something other than granny she picks them out and we go to the checkout. Well they were to be 5 for $25 and they weren't ringing up that way and this little older lady says well something is in this pile that shouldn't be or else they would ring up. Well after probably 10 mins of waiting for the other clerk to go and check we find out that the one pair had been reduced to $2.99! So Heather goes and picks out another pair of undies so we can get the others for the $25! Talk about pulling teeth to buy underware! So that was my laugh so to speak for today.

12 Days bag gonna be made from my stash!

Yahoo! I found all the fabric and batting needed to make the bag for my Elf out of my stash! I am so happy....didn't think it was gonna happen but it did. After Christmas I will post pics but until I can't just in case she would happen by and read my bog....that wouldn't be cool..Am thinking that I may make one for me after the first of the year!

Baby quilt all done!

Here is a pic of the finished baby quilt. It's all quilted and the binding is all done.

Being sick stinks!

My brain is telling me I am finally starting to see improvement. But doing the least little thing makes me so tired! Yesterday I loaded the dishwasher up and turned it on and then sat in my chair and took a nap. Still don't feel like eating too much. I want to sew and am really hoping to do some least I am going to try. Wish me luck! I also need to get to the grocery store and pick up a couple things we are out of...hopefully when Heather gets up she can drive me there.

I have made a list of who I want to make things for as presents for Christmas. While in my chair today I will start looking through magazines and books for the perfect projects. And then another time I can start going through my stash and see what I have on hand that I can use for the gifts!

I got the new Connecting Threads catalog yesterday and found the perfect bag pattern to get to make for my 12 Days of Christmas Swap partner! Going to order it this morning!

Went to the Drs. Friday....

And I am now off work until Nov 12th. I have an Upper Respiratory Infection and Bronchitis. Got some Leviquinn to take and some cough syrup at the pharmacy. Have been back and picked up different cough syrups to see if I can sleep at night.....still no real improvement, so I will be calling the Dr. back on Monday. Hopefully they will just call something new in and I don't have to go in. Boss I dont' think was too happy when I dropped off my note to be out of work...but he will just have to deal with it. Working 30 hours in 3 days last week I'm sure didn't help my health. When I go back I am cutting back to 4 days a week.

I so want to be sewing.....and I need to start on a couple Christmas presents, but I just don't have the energy. Maybe tomorrow I can pick out a couple patterns and then go through my stash and see what I can use. Hopefully I won't have to buy anything! That would be awesome.
