Here I sit in Erie. In my office. In my shorts. With my heater on. Yep. I'm a die-hard shorts wearer. I will wear them with sweaters and sweatshirts and I just can't quite bring myself to put on long pants yet. I did have them on for a while yesterday. They just felt odd. So today, I decided I would be sitting right by my heater. I looked into a tub of fall/winter clothes yesterday, but couldn't bring myself to quite unpack and redo the closet yet. Hanging on to the summer layers. I know. I'll do it next week. Promise.
But this weekend is Scrap and Sew #23, so I had other stuff to do. And there is a golf outing Friday that has a Chinese Auction and I was working on that item, too this week. Seems that sometimes you have something laying around, just looking for an excuse to finish it. So the flannel couch cozy in pink and chocolate is being bound and tucked into a box/basket with a book and a bottle of wine and something chocolate. It's the box I would want. So, once I finish that tonight, then I can make an awesome pile. A pile of other things that are started. I decided to try not to start anything this fall S&S and maybe finish up a couple of things that are already in the hopper.
Sometimes I help other people and then I don't get as much of my stuff done, but I'm really there just to be with my friends. We need that time together. After you lose a friend or two, you hug your others just a bit closer. Some people have hinted rather strongly that they would love to come for the weekend. I know. It's a nice thing. But right now, it's kind of a comfortable thing and there is a list and they get info in groups and if there is enough space, then the next one or two is notified. It is a group that is low maintenance and they all get along. Flannel pants...slippers...wine...chocolate...laughter....music...friends,....more laughter....sometimes tears....a toast to Elaine....not much sleep....road trips for things needed...
We've done this 23 times. Ok, so I'm the only one who has made it 23 times, but Willowe is a 22, and many more are close behind.
We will miss Cindy, who had to go to some thing with her husband...seriously, Dale....Couldn't you just SKYPE into that family reunion in Indiana?? Ok, we will let him off the hook this time...have a great trip. See you next week.....
PS . Our Prayers and Squares group now has a post that I lifted a picture into my last post from. Thanks, Gail. She takes the pictures.
