Hello, Halloween … Goodbye, Daylight Savings Time
I don’t get into Halloween the way some do, so there’s no Halloween décor here at Chez Nana. In fact, other than Christmas, I don’t do much decorating for the seasons or holidays. I’d rather enjoy the things I already have out, many of which have sentimental value to me.
We didn’t have any trick or treaters last night. But it was just as well because I have to confess that I was in bed not long after 7:00. I know … I normally go to bed early, but 7:00? I’ll confess that I’ve not been feeling well for the last couple of weeks, and yesterday was the worst. Thankfully between a really good night’s sleep and the start of a treatment plan prescribed by my doctor, I’m feeling better today. Not at all close to 100%, but certainly better than I did yesterday. DH even remarked this morning that he could see that I was feeling better. Hopefully I’ve turned the corner and will be improving each day. Right now, I’m cautiously optimistic that I’ll be able to attend retreat next week. I mean, all meals are provided, so all I have to do is sit, sew and sleep. Which is probably about all I would do here at home. ha! DH, bless his heart, has offered to drive the hour up to Pere Marquette to help me haul all my stuff out of my van to the sewing room.
I erred yesterday when I reported that I was ready to start working on block #6. The photo I took was before I quilted block #6, but I had since moved the hoop to get ready to start on block #7. Obviously my “puniness” affected my brain. I did get most of the 7th block quilted yesterday. Like I said, yesterday was a very bad day, so I didn’t make as much progress as I would have liked, but some progress is better than no progress, right? Had I been feeling better, I should have quilted the entire block and even perhaps a little of block #8. Oh well … like I said, some progress is better than no progress. Maybe today will be a more productive day.
I’m already discouraged at how early it’s getting dark … and it’s only going to be worse tomorrow! I know we’ll get an extra hour’s sleep tonight, but ugh – I’m not looking forward to it getting dark before dinner. But I guess that will be inevitable even if we weren’t changing from DST what with the shorter days. <sigh>
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
