I finally finished my apron. I hand sewed it. I finally found a small sewing machine, when I had the hem about halfway finished. (figures) I used pleats instead of gathering at the waist band so it would "fit" better. The pocket is a bit small, but for now, it's what I want. I could put another pocket on it. I just havn't, yet.
Jerry has to work, tomarrow. We will be eating drive thru, on our way to the local auction. I bet they missed us last week, when Jerry had to work from Noon to Midnight. Only he got off around 8 30. By the time he got home, it was kinda late to go to the auction.
I got most of the house cleaned up today.. all the mop-able floors, got mopped. I watered my flower pot that has poppies in it, and added some moss rose seeds to some smaller pots I've made from cola bottles. I don't have much area to plant any thing in. I hope to have a few pots on the porch. I know this place is shaded all day long.
The Girl Scout Cookies are out !!! We picked up two boxes of thin mints, one of the sugar free chocolate chip and one of tag a longs. I talked with the cookie mom for a few mintues but I had to go int othe store and spend even more money. They will be even closer to home next week, and I hope to walk over, with my backpack, and pick up even more cookies. They are suppose to have 8 different kinds out. but only had 6 kinds when we got to Walmart. I want to pick up the caramel ones for Jerry. He's nuts about Caramel.
If you look really close at my picture above, you will see, behind me, my other project. it's on going.. I'm not sure what to call them, yet.. Window jewerly, Window strings... not sure. It's not a curtain since each can be hung by itself. or clusted with others. I've only the three so far. I hope to make more this weekend.
Rocky has been barking around 2 am, a couple of nights in a row... night before last, he spent in his kennel.. last night he was back on the bed and didn't bark at all. Kelly the cat,, has gotten into his own trouble. Besides going outside without permission (yeah, right.. tell a cat he's not allowed outside) He's taken to getting on top of the night stand in the bedroom.. He knocked my glass jar of coins off, the night Rocky was in his kennel.. and it made a huge noise. At least the jar didn't break. It's a jar I picked up in Vicksburg. cause it's unusual.. It has three sides. I wanted to do some hitching around it, but lost patience with it.
I'm not sure what my next project will be. Either a Chemis or another apron. I have two set up to sew.. I now have that sewing machine to it will go much faster. I will want to do some fancy work on a pocket or two, next time.

Does he eat right? Has he found a woman to love him? Will he ever make us grandparents? Is he happy?
And I worry about the Girls as well. Are they happy? Is Heather loved like she should be? Will Beth find someone to cherish her?
I imange my Momma had the same worries about me and my Brothers.
Am I Happy? Yes. Am I loved. Yes. and I cherished, You bet. Jerry is the best. We've had our troubles, but we came through them. Battle scars, a few.. love lines many more of those. He's my quiet Teddy Bear. I go where he goes. He takes care of me. I take care of him.
I still find it hard to believe that David turns 30 this year. I want to do something special for his birthday. I don't have my picture tub with me at this time, or I would make him a scrapbook of his childhood. All his adventures we had. I am going to have to start a coupld of books I guess. Storeis of the kids growning years. I do wish now, I had kept a diary or journal of those years for them. They went by too fast. Kids grow up too fast. "We moved to often". the number of pets, the names of which I know I've forgotten a few.

Jerry told his supervisor that the next time is in three weeks... I don't know if something will be said or not. last time something was said. Jerry explained that I can't drive.. my licence is expired. (working on that) and even if I could legally drive there, no way could I drive myself back home, or pick him up from work aterwards... It is my eyes he's dealing with.
For a while tonight, I thought Jerry was having to work 12 hours instead of 10 cause he didn't call when he got off work. He had forgotten to take his phone with him. I put together a quick dinner. Pork chops, salad, and bow ties in a sauce. Jerry had to work 8 hours Saturday afternoon/evening. Not sure just why.. even he said there wasn't enough work to have had to go in at that time. He's getting more and more frustrated with this job, and his supervisor.
I did finish my apron I was working on. over the weekend. I had Jerry take a picture of it on me, now I have to find my camera cord to download to my computer. I also made two more window strings of glass beads for the front window. I put more beads on these than what is on the first one.
Beth Usually calls me, after she gets off work, most morning.. this time, she called while on her way home and while we were talking, the hood of the van flew up on her... made her all nervous and uptight... I finished the story I was telling her, to help calm her down. She had to tye the hood down with wire and it had slipped loose. I bet she checkes that wire more often, now. I asked her to take a picture with the damage to the hood with her phone and send it to me... and she didn't do it... it makes me so mad that she won't do something I ask.. I just want to be sure it's still safe. I was going to show it to Jerry so he would know what happened as well.
I brought my treadmill out of the back bedroom into the living room/kitchen area. and Yes, I've walked a little on it. my back still starts to act up when I am up for more that 10 minutes, but not as bad. I hope to be able to walk about a mile on it by the end of ths week.
Rain tomarrow. could be worse, could be snow... On our way to the doctors office we noticed that the grass is starting to green up, already. We are due to have some below freezing weather this week, but only a night or two. with highs in the mid to upper 50's this week. Last weeks 70's sure had me spoiled for that warmer weather. With the rain and all, I think I'll just make a pot of beans and fresh bread for our dinner tomarrow.
Rocky has a couple of friends, now Two-doe and Sassy.. when he's inside, he's looking out a window for them. When he's outside he's looking for them and if he sees them, gives a different sounding bark to let them know he's outside, please come play. It's kinda cute, but a pain as well. I don't really want him outside all the time. He barks at the neighbors who walk up and down the street all day long. I know that they walk to the store at least once a day, and No idea where else they are going but it's often.

I did call Heather, if / when we are contacted we may travel together to Missouri for the will reading. She's still looking for a job.
My eye surgury was put off for almost 3 weeks. I tried and tried to call the cab all moring long. He finally answered, after 9 am. and he tried to act like it was my phone.. I was dialing every 3 to 5 minutes. I kept getting the message "The person you are trying to contact is not availble right now, please try your call again later." I was able to set a new appointment. but you know... many doctors now will charge your card if you miss an apointment. I don't know what this man's problem is, if he didn't want to take me, all he had to do was say so.
Jerry was not as mad as I expected him to be. He understands I was trying to call the taxi. It's not my fault he didn't have his phone on, or what ever. He said it was turned on... but the only time I get that message when I call one of my kids is when they have their phone turned off.
Even if I had a valid driver's licence there is no way I can drive back home after each session. My eyes are to blurry for hours afterwards.
I picked up what I thought were curtains for our bedroom.. they are drapes and not wide enough to cover the window. Now I have to put the sheet back on the rod and put it back up. I have plans for that sheet and it is not as a curtain in our bedroom.
