So how was last week?

Did you get much accomplished? Did you team win in the Superbowl? Did you get snowed in?

What's on the agenda for this week? And do you have Valentine's Day plans?

Last week wasn't too bad. It did snow, the biggest storm of the season so far for us but only 3". The issue was it was blowing snow so it drifted... everywhere! So the county went to level 1 Snow alert. And the team I was rooting for in the Superbowl DID win! Yay!

As for what I said I wanted to do:

1) Continue to nag DH to work on the switch in the basement === DONE, no result there but he did finish the toilet and change out a light in the new bedroom so it could be aimed at his worktop (he has taken over half the room for his garden planning)

2) Stamping demo Tuesday Night === DONE

3) Stitchery: work on my new embroidery piece and get up the courage to piece the fabric for guild challenge, a "row of the month" mystery quilt.Also work on the February Bead Journal piece. === Still haven't gotten up that courage, but I completed my Bead Journal Project February piece and stitched quite a bit on "Garden Sampler".

4) Housecleaner comes on Wednesday === DONE

5) Bills, computer records for finances, and the tax prep documents …) === Bills paid, computer updated and tax prep document started

6) Call the bank about our CD which is coming due Friday… to see what interest rates will be === DONE and CD reinvested at a slightly better rate for but a considerably longer time.

and wait for that painter??? === no sign of him!

So this week:
1) Continue to nag DH to work on the switch in the basement

2) Stamping demo Tuesday Night = Mary is back in Wyoming as her mother is worse and in the hospital on a DNR; and snow is predicted for Tuesday on top of this past weekend's 3" of drifting snow, so Janice and I decided to pass on this week.

3) Stitchery: work on my new embroidery piece and get up the courage to piece the fabric for guild challenge, a "row of the month" mystery quilt.

4) Housecleaner comes on Wednesday

5) Haircut on Wednesday

6) Pick up prescription refills on Wednesday

7) Well Woman exam on Thursday

8) Black Swamp Quilt Guild meeting

9) Bills, computer records for finances, and continue working on the tax prep documents …)

and wait for that painter???

No specific Valentine's day plans here...

Last week was a bit of a mess - but Sevens weekend always seems to cause that so it was expected.

* Make a list of the threads that I need for the next project (I had a list but I've lost it) - NOT DONE, but I know where to find the information.
* Do another declutter. For some reason, I keep ending up with clutter. - KIND OF DONE, still need to do some more but gradually making a difference.

What's on the agenda for this week? And do you have Valentine's Day plans?
Goals for this week:
* Make a list of the threads that I need for the next project
* Do another declutter
* Make sure I have all scans, xrays, paperwork etc in order for pain specialist appointment next week.

Trying this again - must have hit a strange key and everything disappeared earlier.

Last week -
finished quilting on blocks for wall hanging

Skipped tutoring on Tues & Curves on Weds due to pulled hip flexor muscle. Began doing stretching for problem, feels 90% better now.

Spent a lot of time keeping an eye on the new cat and resident cat, but by weekend they were buddies.

THIS WEEK -

1 DH's buddy arrived Sunday for 3 day visit.

2 Assemble blocks into wall hanging.

3 Back massaged Tues AM

4 Take new cat to vet on Thurs for extreme teeth cleaning - one of the things his previous keeper couldn't afford.

5 Get to Curves and tutoring when weather allows - big storm blowing in Mon eve/ Tues. Must keep reminding myself - being retired means never having to force oneself out in rotten/dangerous weather.

6 Days are getting brighter, so I'm inclined to get some house cleaning done. First thing to tackle is kitchen cabinets.

I agree with you about retirement and having to go someplace in WEATHER. We are due for the same storm... and the stamping demo has already been cancelled by the leader so Janice and I deciding to not go is no big deal. Just hoping it's cleared in time for the quilt guild meeting on Thursday!

Storm hit overnight,now I'm faced with a dilemma. I missed last week's massage, was out of it from pain meds and forgot to cancel. She gracefully understood, knowing I'm always on time, then we rescheduled for this morning. As of now, I'd need to wade through 2 feet of snow drift to even get to the car, then brush 5" of snow off before I could even exit our drive. Schools are closed, roads are iffy. The catch is that their office is 5 minutes from me and I'm feeling like I should at least try. But, snow is still coming down, and I can't asked DH to get me dug out, as he waits until snow at least lets up. I'm hoping the masseuse will call & cancel soon, so I don't feel I MUST go. Decisions, decisions - LOL.

If I stay home, I'll need to put on a workout DVD, because I've been a slug lately.

DH's friend made it home to MI before midnight & reported that he outran the storm and his wife's flight to Detroit had no problems. Now they are waiting to see if the storm heads there way.

It is there way! we are 1.5 hours south of Detroit and we are still getting snow... but the big story around here is wind and drifting!

They are actually in Saginaw and reported in that he was home safe AND his DW's plane made it in before it got too bad. She was at a mtg. in FL - what a shock that must have been. What is bad here right now is frigid temps AND high winds.

Well, I drove to the massage, no one showed up. Returned & found that the appt is THURS, not today. Poor old brain should never assume it knows anything. I MUST force myself to look at the calendar or the 3x5 cards we live by.

Spent the rest of the day inside, did a walking DVD then finished joining the blocks on my wall hanging. Down to putting on the binding. Must look way to make sleeve for hanging. DH noticed that the sun coming through the pieces really was beautiful - like a stained glass window. So, I'm thinking of hanging this in a window, instead of on the wall.
