Nothing Going On

There is absolutely nothing going on in the LA Quilter household.  Seriously, nothing!

You know it's pretty bad when the only thing you have to take a picture of is the stupid crock pot.

I have a tri tip roast in there and it sure is smelling good.  A couple of more hours to go.  Penny keeps going in the kitchen and looking at the stove with her nose twitching. 

I've taken to organizing small projects.  A couple of days ago it was a drawer in my bedroom.  This morning it was the drawer in the kitchen that has the Ziploc bags, etc.  Tomorrow will be filing paperwork and making some new files.  A task a day will eventually get the job done.

The Kindle has gotten quite the work-out this week.  Four books.  Admittedly a couple of them were little more than long short stories, but it feels good to be reading again after months of not being able to do so.  I can read for about an hour and then my neck starts hurting.  So I take an hour or so break and go back to it.  TV is totally boring.  I mean, there is hardly anything on worth watching other than the History Channel and the Cooking Channel, etc.  I've watched every DVD I have - and there's a lot of them - sometimes more than once.  Time to go DVD shopping again!

This morning I was looking through some pictures that I downloaded off my camera back in February.  We had a really hard hail storm one day.  The next morning when I took Penny out, the hail was still stuck in the flower beds where the sun doesn't shine very much.  This picture was taken on 2/8/13.  It looks like snow.  A really unusual sight seeings as how I live in basically an irrigated desert.

Penny started to walk on it and then quickly crawfished back onto the sidewalk.  What a weenie!  It was funny, though, because she had never seen anything icy on the ground.

I've kind of been watching the Spring Markets reports from Portland, but not as avidly as I usually do.  I've seen a few patterns that I'd like to have, and a couple of Moda lines that look interesting.  I must have the blahs .......

That's it from here.  Thought I'd best post something because friends are emailing and calling to check up on me.

I've been doing a lot of reading too since my wrist surgery. I also have been checking out DVD's from our local library. They certainly have an abundance of titles, plus we can request a title from another library and have it sent to the one closer to me.

Well, you have a very nice looking crockpot. :-) Mine is showing its age. I love to read too and sometimes just can't put the book down! I've been watching market posts too. I've seen some goodies too. ;-) Have a good week!

I'm coming for dinner - I like what's cooking in the crock pot. LOL

I love to read and try to limit myself to only reading just before I'm ready to go nite-nite. Very relaxing for me.

Sounds like you're making the best of your down-time!

Are you a fan of British comedy at all? If so, I've got some good dvd recommendations… :)

Sounds like you need to sign-up for Netflix! Lots of great stuff and the price is extremely reasonable.
So glad you can read again! I am working on the "Game of Thrones" series and I am loving it.
Maybe I should take a hint from you and start cleaning-up MY drawers and clutter spots?!
Take care of yourself and don't over-do it!

Understanding the blahs. They sure are easy to slip into and hard work to get out. I picked up knitting and have made about a dozen dishcloths. I want to have the desire to go in my sewing room, it's just not happening though.
My mom passed away last month and I just seem to have become a slug. Tomorrow I m going with my husband on a business trip and hoe the change of surroundings will help.
I have too much $$ and years invested in my quilting room to not go in there.
I'm thinking if putting up " LOST MOJO - pease return" signs in my little town and see what turns up.
