Indiscriminate Contemplations

Indiscriminate Contemplations == Random Thoughts

  • A reminder: don’t forget to “fall back” (Daylight Savings Time ends) this weekend. I always disliked this time of the year – we technically gain an hour (and lose it again in the spring). I have a hard time getting into the new routine of technically getting up an hour earlier. Ugh! That is way too early for me. And, it’s so dark! Oh well, I’ll get used to it.

  • This is going around the internet. For a little fun: 1) Go to 2) click the “get directions” link 3) type “Japan” as the start location and “China” as the end location and 5) take a look at step 43 in directions and laugh.

  • We’re going to go on another no spend month soon. We’ve tentatively made January the no spend month because, well obviously, November and December are budget killers. Mostly, it’s the traveling (gas & food) that wipes us out. We are not big on gift giving; however, we do either give a few gifts between ourselves or purchase one big gift for us.

  • Gracie is still doing fairly well and I am very thankful for that. We've decided to wash her face once a week because she started to develop problems around her mouth again. She's doing fabulously washing the left side of her face using her back paw; but, it is apparently not enough. I'm hoping that this will help. My worst fear is that the bacterial infection was not completely conquered or that she really does have allergies. We'll continue to keep an eye on her.

  • I started and finished making the first block for a Layer Cake quilt along. I made a few mistakes and I thank God I bought an extra Layer cake for just in case I mess up. Ha! You can view the block I made here. I will post more about it later next week.

  • I am going to be gone this weekend and will not have my laptop with me. I will be at the Houston International Quilt Festival Saturday. I’m looking forward to going – viewing quilts and shopping is always enjoyable for me. I have to get busy and pack for the short weekend trip!
