Yesterday Bob had to work for most of the day. I did a few things around the house and fiddled with my blog layout and finally got it "almost" just right...for my taste anyway. I am pretty happy with it. But knowing me....I will change it again in a few months. I am like that. Love changing things around and trying new things. Bob got home from work in the early afternoon, and was ready for a break, so we headed out to Barnes and Noble and got some coffee and I looked through about 10 magazines and chose these 2 to purchase. I am a little disappointed in the Debbie Bliss magazine, but still wanted it, just because I bought the first one and well.....it may become a new collection. I have about 20 years of "Quilters Newsletters" magazines around here. That may have been my last big collection of magazines. When I am ready to part with those I want to find just the right home for them. A home where someone will cherish them as much as I did. So what if I never made a quilt from them. I still loved to look at all of them and read the stories.
I also had to get this latest Windows Fall issue. This has several things I think will be useful for me with my new computer, which I love by the way. There is an article about how to deal with some of Vista's annoying issues. They listed 10, but I will only use 2. The other 8 don't bother me. Plus my new computer came with a free upgrade to Windows 7 coming out in October. And there are some helpful things in this article.
After we shopped for a bit, we all had a meal together and Maddie was really cute. She is talking so well now. Bobby was flying her around the house and she loves that game, and she said "One more time, please". I think that was the biggest ...full sentence ....I have heard her say so far. Tonight she is coming over to spend the rest of the week with us while Katy does some training in Texas. I spent today doing things around here like mowing the lawn, etc. so that she can have my full attention. I probably won't get my showers until after she goes to bed. Remember those days??? Trying to squeeze in time for your own needs like bathing, when there is a toddler to watch over. Last night I only got 3 hours of sleep, so I may try and lay down for a bit. Our weather has been wonderful!
