Quick Notes

Outside my window:   I see nothing but darkness. It's 10:30pm
I am thinking:  I need to get busy sewing on pillow cases, quilts, mug rugs and postcards. Sew many projects so little Time! but instead as soon as I post I'm going to bed

From the kitchen:  It was closed tonight. Went out to a bookclub meeting so David was on his own. I haven't gotten very far on cooking my way thru the cookbook. I'm a creature of habit I guess. Actually I think it's more a matter I don't want to take the time to try something new or different thru the week.
I am wearing:  My blue nightie. Getting ready to close things down for the night

I am creating:  Some postcards that I'm behind on and mug rug or two for a swap at Quilters Crossing Quilt store in Tomball.

I am going:  Well  actually I went to the bookclub at a mexican restaurant and discussed our latest book "The Immortal Life of Henriette Lacks". True story about how in 1951 a young black women had cancer and while being treated at John Hopkins Hosptial a doctor removed some cells for a biopsy and used some of the cells for research with out her permission. Very interesting but I think the book could have been about 100 pages shorter.

I am learning:  That as we get older we can't always control what goes on around us. God has a plan for all of us. For some the plan is too short but they've left their mark on the world. I hope those people are looking thru the holes in Heaven to see how they touched our lives.
I am reading:  the last 15 pages of the bookclub book called "The Immortal Life of Henriette Lacks" by Rebecca Skloot. yes I know I already went to the meeting but I always finish my book.  As soon as I finish then I'll go back to reading "His Bright Light" by Danielle Steel. It's the true story about her late son. I need to work my way thru the book closet. I acquired 4 new books for the closet last week. Oops. Our new book assignment for bookclub is "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. Yahoo won't have to go out and buy this one. It's the next book on my shelf to read.

I am hoping:  That all the families in the mid-west get some relief soon from all these horrible tornados and storms! And I'm really hoping for some rain in Texas. Brush fires are popping up everywhere.

Around the house:  I really need to clean up my very disorganized sewing/craft/office area. Taxes are done, check written and mailed off so no more excuses.

One of my favorite things:  While the weather is still bearable sitting outside on the patio with the hubby having a drink. That drink can be water or alcholic. Just sitting outside talking, listening and watching the birds and the lone bat that comes out from where ever.

A Few Plans for the Rest of the Week:  Work one my many projects, go to a Southern Living party, go visit my mom and spend time with the kido who's coming home for Easter. Hopefully she won't have a paper or pile of nursing school work and can enjoy the weekend. Easter dinner at David's brothers house.
Until next Blog.................................
There are two motives for reading a book;
one, that you enjoy it; the other, that you can boast about it.
