My Lonely Day!

The boys went back to school today! :( Trust me they did not want to go! So I was feeling rather lonely this morning after the bus ran....Richard was at work and both the boys at school and it was just ME! I fed all of the animals and I was still lonesome so I gathered up several books that I had read and hopped in the car! I went to the book store to trade my old ones in on some other used books. I love reading Historical Romance Novels so I was excited to get a bunch more of them. While I was there I looked around in the NEW section and found a quilt book. :)

I love Christmas but I have never made a Christmas quilt! I am a very traditional Christmas person! And this book seemed to have alot of traditional patterns in it. And the best part is it only cost me $3!!!!

I think some of my favorite patterns in the book are on the back cover!!! I took a photo of it too, so you could see them.

While I was in Paintsville, I stopped by Goodwill, but I didn't find anything there. I was just mostly trying to kill time before I had to go back home. I always get depressed like that when the kids go back to school. So I did a couple loads of laundry after I got home and fixed dinner and the boys were soon home from school and ALL WAS RIGHT WITH THE WORLD!!

Anyway......we are all hanging out in the living room now watching Reba on tv!

Today is my brother's birthday! He is 41!!! I called him a little while ago to wish him happy birthday! He is 4 yrs older than I am but always tells everyone that I am the oldest!!! I guess that is just the way it is between brothers and sisters!

Nothing quilty going on tonight but hopefully tomorrow I will be more in the mood to sew!!! I have lots of plans in my head, just wish that I had the energy to do them all!

What great finds you got - if you got that quilt book. Kids went back to school today and I went back to work - but we needed our routine back. Enjoy your evening!

I think all of us have those sort of downer days...tomorrow it will be better.

That quilt book looks interesting.

Enjoy the new romance novels.

Question: how old is Ole Jim, the mule? Maybe you have posted the answer but I don't remember.

The house is always empty when the kids are not around.

Gemma went back to school on Monday but Mal didn't go back to work until today. Although I miss them I do like the peace and quiet of an empty house.
Love the feathereed star quilt on the back of the book

Love and hugs Gina xxx
