Tonight when Vince took Speck out for his last walk of the evening, Vince came in and reported that there were a bunch of deer in the empty lot across the street and they were “snorting” at him.
Chad and I went out — both of us with our cameras but we didn’t see any deer. Of course, we didn’t turn on any lights and we were kinda far away from where Vince had seen them and we were both barefooted and it’s pretty dangerous to walk around in my yard barefooted . . with what Speck leaves behind in our yard. Chad was taking pictures and just playing around with his camera and I was taking pictures of Chad and we were both cracking up. Thank goodness we don’t have any neighbors on that side of the house!
On the sewing front, not much happened today. Chad and I went to Joplin. Yes, Vince and I went on Saturday and you know how I love shopping .. NOT! We did get to eat at the Del Rio Mexican restaurant and it was really good. We came home from shopping and I took a 2-1/2 hour nap!! Can you believe I slept for 2-1/2 hours in the middle of the afternoon? It was hot in the house last night and I kept waking up thinking I should turn the a/c on but then I’d remember it’s January and then I’d say so what? I’m hot! But then I’d think that if I turned the a/c on upstairs and didn’t go downstairs and turn off the heat, then all the warm air would just come upstairs and the heater would probably come on downstairs so most of the night, I kept battling with myself but was too lazy to get up, come downstairs and turn off the heat so I could turn on the a/c upstairs. Goofy, huh?
What little sewing I did was playing with the nine patches for Chad’s quilt. Some of the colors I had didn’t go with the color scheme I’m doing so I made a few more nine patches. Still don’t have enough. I need 120 of them so I should have them all done by this time tomorrow. I think it’s going to be so pretty!
