You know you are just a softie!

Yeah, really am. But don't tell him that.

Small - ha. Maybe to you, but to this ordinary person that sounds like a very daunting task. I myself am in awe of the things that folks accomplish without breaking stride, it seems. What a day, Simonbaker.

While we're in the thick of it all the constant activity may not seem remarkable; once retirement sets in (IMO), we begin to see and appreciate just what great things are being accomplished around us. So many people bear up under heavy loads -- work schedules, the illnesses of loved ones, the need to have a work schedule -- any work schedule. So many stories....and we get to share them here, from all parts of the globe. Lucky us.

A co-worker is on vacation for two weeks, I will be going in today for 4 hours to keep us caught up. Luckily, we are at low-census, hard on our paychecks, but nice that we don't have a bunch of folks that need us.

So, I am heading for work and then getting my regular Monday chores done, like laundry...

When I'm done shovelling snow off the back of the front deck (deck split in two by new porch addition)....


I spread seed for wildlife, which wait patiently.



DH says not to feed the wild turkeys but in the wilderness, one can't dictate who comes to one's table. I let God decide.

I'm also working indoors on a quilt (This Gemini is not a quilter, just hoping to exercise the aging gray matter):

It will have large and small squares and rectangles, appliqueed with 'hibiscus flowers': (here are some small squares in progress):



Should look like this when completed (minus the 'busy' border):

I'm on the bus to home after a weekend away with my sister. It was nice but geez I missed my family! The highway is bare and dry so far, but we had a HUGE dump of snow over the weekend (thus the bus ride).

Just got back from the repair shop with my repaired mixer. Now having a light lunch of hummus, kalamata olives and pita.
