I didn't hear on the news this morning about Blogger blowing up so guess my entrance into blogging yesterday didn't cause too many major problems. I added some pictures of the kids but need to get some pics of the dachsies up as they were majorly peeved(as only dachsies can get peeved and that's to the max!) that they weren't includen on the maiden blogging voyage.
We're having a low-keyed Saturday-staying in to allow Roger to recover from his hospitalization as he INSISTS he's going back to work Monday(MEN-THE EIGHTH WONDER OF THE WORLD OR WHATEVER THE NEXT NUMBER OF WONDER OF THE WORLD IS). He is making crepes for breakfast(did I mention he loves to cook, bake and knit and is as cute as Sean Connery?) and rumaki and hot wings for supper(he hails from Buffalo, the hot wing pros). I am doing my first quilt and my mother and grandmother are gyrating in their graves as I am not hand piecing it or hand quilting it. My Eldest wanted a quilt so it should be done by Christmas. I bought a rotary cutter and my first order of business was slicing the tip of my thumb off. Moving right along, I strip pieced the quilt and sewed it on the trusty Singer. I will post a pic when it is done. That will pretty much take up my afternoon. If I pull this off, it will take me less time to birth my first quilt than it did to birth the Eldest.
I'm putting Roger through a chick flick at 6 on Lifetime called The Christmas Wedding(I'm a sucker for weddings) and then we're gonna hunker down and watch The Polar Express for the first time ever. It got the 2 Thumbs Up from my favorite almost-3-year-old buddy named Carter(great nephew of my best friend Kathy, but probably he and his 1-year-old brother Cade are the closest I'll ever get to human grandchildren--I have 3 granddachsies and 1 grandlab and 2 grandcats although, at the risk of inciting a riot, I am NOT a cat person, but I subscribe to live-and-let-live EXCEPT when it comes to snakes, mice and rats(Hallie, your snake is safe as long as it stays with you in the Northeast). My detestment(is that a word?) of snakes is a post all its own and for another time.
Enjoy your Saturday and make every moment count, for when you think about it, a moment is all we have.
