oh my poor fingers.

I told myself that I was going to have my mom's scarf finished this weekend. What that did not happen.

I had a heck of a time trying to wean three of the cat's. I finally put some wet food down for them and then they ate. What was I thinking? Silly me thinking that they would drink milk out of a bowl. So I now only have two left on the bottle. I will try to wean them within the next few weeks.

Then I found out that next week one of the marines will be leaving. What? Why is everyone getting orders at the last minute? This marine does not have a quilt, so I had to get busy and get a quilt done.

I should have the quilt done tonight. On Wednesday, Rusty is going to take the marine out to dinner and give him his quilt. I was thinking about going out to dinner with them, but driving all the way down to base just for dinner is not a good use of gas.

I also found out that another marine will be leaving soon. So I need to get busy on his quilt.

My fingers are so sore from sewing! yes I will make sure to take pictures of the quilts.

Well there really has not been to much else going on, so I better get back to my sewing.

If there is no rest for the wicked then I have been very wicked lately!

I think it is so neat that you make the quilts for the marines, sore fingers included; truly an act of love!!

I heard the best sermon this morning and I ordered a CD of it which I'll get next week and then we'll just have to meet; I thought of Nikki when he was talking; it is soooo good!!

a certain child thought it was wise to grace our house with his presence for a few months; I'm so thankful of the Lord's shield around him these past 3 months; I'll update you more when we talk; I'm writing an entry in my journal later this afternoon about it; it won't be the whole story, but a good start :)

Another marine quilt in the making.  You give such great gifts which require effort! I know your gift will end up being a warm comfort to a guy far from home in danger and travail.  Gerry

Look out Sept. is coming and I heard they are shipping out even more of our soldiers for Iraq. We are gearing up for Gary's departure in a few weeks. Skye is getting stronger by the day, she is still out of work for at least another week. She went down to 82 lbs. in the hospital. Thankfully she is slowly putting it back on. She's going to need her strength with Gary gone. It's her first...hopefully she gets through it ok. There will be plenty more as he's signing up for another 6 years while he's over there. (Hugs)Indigo
