Happy Tuesday. Nothing special about today except we are alive and well and that is special in itself.
I went to our church this morning and filled shoe boxes to be sent to those in need, cooked 10 lbs of beets to get them ready to be pickled and did some sewing.
I have all the rows sewn together for my bargello quilt and now am getting ready to work out the layout. This is always a fun time when the quilt starts to take on its personality. I have been taking photos of the steps which I will share with you later. I have to do a 12.5 inch block to send to Island Batik (islandbatik.com) and am thinking of doing a mini version of the bargello.
One of our chickens died today. I was giving them their evening feeding and collecting eggs when I saw it in a corner of the coop. Hubby didn't see any marks on it so it much have been age related.
Tomorrow hubby has another doctor's appointment and I am hoping that he will get more relief from his back pain. Next week is another appointment with the surgeon. Fingers crossed that he will be given the go ahead to start resuming his chores. He is getting pretty fed up with not being able to get out and do what needs to be done.
We have a Christmas dinner tomorrow at the Legion for the village Art and Crafts Club. It will, I know, be a fun time. We are having a small, fun gift exchange, lots to eat and donations brought for our food bank. This is our first event for the Christmas season.
