Now and This Week

I’m going to be out of town at the end of the week so I’ll be posting my photo of the week early. I’m going to the Houston Quilt Festival!

I’ve got a lot of things to do before I leave early Wednesday morning to meet my momma and sister for my dear momma’s 70th birthday celebration. We’re going to lunch at a restaurant that has a reputation for being haunted! Mom and I love stuff like that.

It’s also my hubby’s birthday. He totally understands me not being home to celebrate with him so that I can be there to celebrate with momma. He and I will celebrate his birthday when I return. We were going to celebrate his birthday before I left, but our water is funky tasting and smelling right now and I think it would ruin the chicken for frying, so the celebration has been put on hold. That is one of the occasional drawbacks to living in a rural area. Our water gets nasty at times.

It would have also been my dad’s birthday. He would have been 71 this year. Yes, you read that right, all of them — my husband and both parents share the same birthday.

As for other updates on my life, I’m doing really good now. After a lot of work, with a counselor and alone, I’ve been able to forgive both friends who had hurt me so badly at the end of August. I’ve told the friend in person who lives locally and mailed a letter to the friend who lives out of state. I have decided that even though I’ve forgiven the person that is out of state, I no longer want that person in my life, so they are actually a former friend. I’m happy again! So happy in fact that I’m having trouble figuring out how to finish the miniature quilt that I had started to work out some of my Rage on. I had started to embroider the word rage, but now I think I’ll take that out and just do the quilting I had planned to. I’ll still title it Rage though.

  1. I remember the way the water tastes at your house. Well water. I miss that taste sometimes.

    Actually when we moved in, we changed to city water at dad's suggestion. Right now, I miss the well water too. At least we wouldn't have the problems with it that we have now. We'd just have the mineral stains and curdled creamer in the coffee. 😉
