To Do List

Do you use a To Do List? I try, I really do but everytime I make a list I loose it. This weekend Andrew is driving to New Bern to visit his mom and I'm gonna tackle the to do list I just made, from the look of the list I'm gonna need more then the weekend to get it done but at least I've written a few things down. I would be happy to share the list with you but you'd see alot of blanks, it would read something like this.

______birthday present
________birthday present
paint railings
_______round robin block
_________birthday present
baby boy quilt
BOM Banners
trace red/black work for _____birthday present
________birthday present
remove wallpaper in guest bath

This list doesn't have any of the normal stuff Andrew and I do together on Mondays like grocery shopping and just general running around, or laundry, cleaning, walking the you see I'll be a pretty busy lady this veggin' for me.

My plan is to let y'all know how far along I've gotten on this list before Andrew gets home on Monday...

Wish me luck...

  1. I am an inveterate list maker. I have lists everywhere. Lists for the grocery shopping, lists of quilt projects, lists of books I want to read, fantasy lists of the clothes and shoes I would buy if I could. When I see your list, I think you sure have a lot of people to buy birthday gifts for!!

  2. Good lucky, deary! That's a pretty long list for a weekend, as you said! Maybe you should not set yourself up for failure by saying this is your weekend list, but call it your week's list!? Just an idea! Enjoy!

A Personal Post

Please indulge me as I write this very personal post....

When an obituary doesn't tell the whole story:

On Christmas day I received a phone call from my nephew that my brother had passed away in his sleep. His death was sudden and with no warning. Time stood still and I didn't know if I could catch my breath from the shock.

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.

I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.

Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
