Visiting Mobile Alabama

Family and I are currently in Mobile Alabama for a few days doing some family things...actually my Dad is here for a National Award....Newspaper Carrier of the Year Award....something he has been doing since the age of 14 and he is currently 75 and still doing many years is that? Most people change jobs every 5 or so years. Way to go Dad!!!!

The conference ends tomorrow and I'm headed back to Atlanta and rest of family (parents and siblings) are headed back to Louisiana. Hubby has a dinner meeting tomorrow night....which means that I don't have to rush back home from Mobile....what can I do?...I Know!...I Know! How about a Quilt Store shop hop from Mobile to Atlanta...Interstate 65/85. I can check out the stores here in Mobile and Montgomery and others in between that are not to far off the interstate. Sounds like a fun plan to me.

Hope that everyone has a great week. Happy Quilting! Happy Living!

Happy Easter! What are you cooking?

Hope that everyone has a Happy and Blessed Easter and that you are able to be with loved ones on this special holiday.

What is everyone serving tomorrow? I would love to hear about your menu plans and Easter egg hunt plans! I'm serving a Baked Ham with a honey glaze, green beans, potato salad, deviled eggs and probably a cheesecake with strawberry topping since that's my hubby's favorite dessert. All this and there are only 3 of us! We will be eating Ham leftover remakes all week long. Maybe my daughter will bring some back to school with her. No egg hunts for us, since it's just 3 of us, but we will probably dye some eggs since it's such a tradition.....there's a leftover idea....ham salad with chopped eggs. I probably will bake some fresh bread too...I just love fresh baked bread and my bread machine and I get along so well together.

Maybe tomorrow afternoon I can get some quilting done. My stash and UFO bin is just growing and growing. I never did finish my husband's quilt for his b-day. Shame on me. It's about 95% quilted. I got sidetracked on totes and Shop Hop. Tomorrow or maybe tonight maybe a good time to finish it up.....alas...I wave bye-bye to another deadline as it has come and gone. At least I will ALWAYS have something to do!

Now it's time to take a nap...I worked all night and I'm tired. Great night until shift change when one of my patients decided it was time to go unresponsive and stop breathing. Being the professional and calm team that we are, the patient is now breathing after loads of medication and several waves of shocks. I always hate a bad outcome, but it's especially worse during a holiday. The holiday is never the same for the family members.....but God calls us when he is ready.

Happy Easter to all. Happy Quilting! Happy Living!
