words to live by.......

Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and screaming, "WOO HOO what a ride!!"

Ok, its Friday, we made throw one more week...........by the grace of God!  The heat here has been awful!  But hey by winter we will be complaining about how darn cold it is!!

We had the farrier out this week to give Amigo and Whiskers a hoofacure!  Now that their feet feel better the are happy little guys.  Poor Amigo's where the worse and he had the most cut off, getting old is hell I told him!  The older you get the faster they grow.  Ed will be back in 8 weeks for another go around!  Happy hoofs makes for happy horses! :)

This is the bucket of scraps that I have been using for my civil war quilt and yes I have been back to cutting out more weeks.  I have a long way to go to get caught up and be able to sit back and relax and do just that weeks block.  But I am making head way I cut out weeks 11, 12, 13, 26, and 27.  Tomorrow week 28 will be posted so I will cut that one out too!  When I finish sewing these I will be cutting out 4 more weeks and what ever is the current week.

Lots and lots of triangles for week 26!  Great colors so this is sure to be a cheery block.  I am trying to get as much cutting done as I can before my surgery, just in case I wont to able to even handle scissors.  Lets all keep our fingers cross that the 3rd time really is a charm!  I hope my down time isn't to long.........withdraws might just get ugly!!

Well, here's hoping everyone has a good weekend and I will leave you with:
