fire place

Friday was so chilly and we are still holding out on not turning the heat on, so I put a fire in the fire place. It was so nice to sit by the fire and sew. I have not done that in a long time. Oh note to self. Get one of those chimney cleaning logs.

The marines decided that the fire was nice, so they kept it burning all night long!

We got some rain over the weekend so our fire wood got wet. That is not the best for making a fire! So the big bad marines went and bought dry wood so they could have their fire! LOL To my great surprise the marines even cleaned out the fire place before they left!

Our water heater is still leaking. Rusty is looking around for a deal on a new one. Sometimes I think it would be easier to rent. Then we could just call the land lord and them pay for it.

Saturday night 4 of us went to the store to get burgers and dogs for dinner. Now this may sound easy but it so was not easy. After about 20 minutes of the guys trying to figure out what type of burgers to buy... well I went and got starbucks. We finally make it to the check out and the guys decided to use self check out. O.k. this should be an easy job. Oh no. Never allow two marines to use self check out. After about 30 minutes of them refusing to let me help them..... I crawled into the shopping cart and just sat down. The guys just looked at me. Well I was sick of waiting on them. Finally we are done. By now there is a crowd by the door. One of the marines yells at Rusty " I got mom!" and he pushes me out the door!

One old lady gave me the thumbs up and laughed. Everyone else just stared at us!

Ryan asked me if he could go out front and play I told him no because it was time for to get ready for bed. Ryan just looked at me. So I looked at the clock.. it was only 6:30! Damn this is a sure sign that my long days of summer are over! Dark at 6:30! yep it is time for me to go tan.

This week I will take a picture of Nikki's quilt. I have started working on another marines quilt. This marine LeRoy said that he did not care what was on his quilt, so I asked him if I could make him a quilt out of all of my scraps, and he said yes. So I am actually almost done with that quilt top.

Last night LeRoy  saw what I had done and he said that he loved it. I showed him what some of the scraps were from just in case anyone gave him shit about having pink in his blanket. I just love the way this blanket is turning out!

Well the sick kitten just ate 1/2 can of high calorie food. She is feeling so much better. I think she is back from the edge.

We have a gas fireplace and it is nice, but does not compare to a reall fireplace.
Galad to hear kitty is well.   :)   Tracy

I LOVE fireplaces and wish I had one. I would be burning it too. That's why I go to the store alone. LOL it's dark over here around 7pm. Can't wait to see pictures of all the quilts. Hope you have a great day.
Take care, Chrissie

If you and my sister Ann had a quilt making contest I don't know who would win.  I have never seen anybody put a quilt together so fast as she does, but I believe you are right up there with her.  I can't wait to see a picture of Nicci's quilt, and for that matter, the one made out of scraps.  I have seen a lot of quilts in my time.  The ladies used to compete with one another to make the most beautiful quilt.  Those were the days.  My great grandmother made everybody she could get to in the family a star quilt, but she did not get to me.  By the way I have not seen anyone jump in a shopping cart for a while, but I have seen it done!  Yes, you are a zany girl, but it is good that you do not lose your sense of fun.  You can keep that forever.  Gerry
