All Things Christmas, Block 5


One more block and the scalloped borders to go! I'm still so proud of myself for keeping up with this BOM. I can't wait to get it quilted, so I can get the embellishments on the blocks and bring them to life!

The air was a bit more clear today. I just hope the Santa Ana winds won't kick back up like they're predicting. That wouldn't be good for the fires. Will keep my fingers crossed!

Seven more work days until Retreat. But who's counting? :)

I went to the market on Sunday. When I was unpacking the groceries, I noticed several things missing. So I called the store and they told me to come back by at my convenience to get those items. I stopped over tonight, gave my receipt to the customer service person, and he went out into the store and gathered up everything for me. No questions. I'm real pleased with this store. It's brand-new. My first trip there wasn't a pleasant one - the only time I've ever written a complaint letter. I was immediately contacted and told that the problem had been corrected. They're real pleasant to do business with now, and I'm glad I gave them another chance. And when someone does a good job, I like to let everyone know. It's Albertson's. I give them an A+!

Had a nice chat with my quilting neighbor tonight. It's been a while since we've talked.

Today is the CEO's birthday. I picked up a carrot cake, and then thought I'd better get a small chocolate cake, too. I was real surprised when only one person wanted the chocolate, and the carrot cake was gone! Anyway, the little gathering in the office was nice, and I think he appreciated the gift certificate we gave him.

What else? Oh, Jane flew back home from Market today. I'm not going to call her tonight. I'm not going to call her tonight. I'm not going to call her tonight...........

Gratitudes:

~ The fires are contained. Prayers being said that they stay that way.
~ Not running out of gas this morning. :)
~ Not getting sick like everyone else at the office - yet!
~ Making someone smile!

Your blocks are lovely, ma'am! Is it for moi? LOL!! I just HAD to ask!
Actually, I prefer carrot cake to chocolate. Go figure - must have something to do with the cream cheese frosting. Yum!
Oh Vicky, you always make me smile!
