New crazy block to work on....

I added a bit to the current CQRR that came to me last week. I love all the light tones on this one.... very femine.

A day to sleep and recover

This is the only day I've scheduled myself off and I NEED it badly! The medication the Nurse Practioner gave me to clear things out has made my heart race so I'm not going to take that again today. But I will continue the Z-pack and sleep whenever the urge stricks. Hopefully I will be feeling 100% better by tomorrow morning and nothing major will happen at the store today. Knocking on wood VERY hard.

Illness caught up to me

I've now come down with the crude that everyone else at work has had. I feel HORRIBLE! I've got to open this morning but once Lenora gets there I'm thinking about coming home and crashing as I am exhausted and feel SO bad. I need rest but there is so much that needs to be done at the store before next Friday.I will press on and hope and pray I can recover and work until after Inventory next month. There is so much that needs to be done and so little time to get it all completed. Oh well... I'm a glutten for punishment I guess. As long as I don't land in the hospital it's all good.

Yesterday I went down to Augusta, GA for their Inventory to learn what to expect and boy do I have a LOT to do before my Inventory. No added stress there after that trip. I almost fell asleep on the way home and that scared the daylights out of me.

I KNOW that I need some time off but I've got to find employees dedicated enough that I feel comfortable leaving the store for more than a half day.

A house in our woods!

I spend a lot of my "free" moments with the thought of our new home in the woods these days and how I wish we were all ready living that life. Scott and I are both ready to get with Deltec homes and get a design started with them. I need to start adding notes to their questionare to see what all we will need in our new home. I'm going to pay things off as fast as I can this year so that we can be in the position to move forward on this dream. To have a home in the country to return to each day will be wonderful! I'm still thinking on whether I will return home permanently at that time or if I will continue working. I do so love my job and would miss my regulars immensely. Only time will tell.

I added the burgundy roses and light pink couching toward the top left of the block. I'm hoping that I didn't go too dark with this.

A morning to do as I please!

Thanks to Richard from the other store I am having a mornings repreave from the store. SO I can blog a bit and maybe get some work done on that crazy quilt RR block that I've had here sitting for awhile - too long. I need to get it mailed on to the next person. I'll post a photo of what I do later this morning.

I also need to get some laundry going and the dishes done and a few other little household chores. I'm almost looking forward to doing those as well. Will have to be itno the store about 1 this afternoon. It is so nice to be home!
