Yesterday was much better than the day before. I am devastated with WordPress counting consecutive days of publishing a blog. I did not schedule my Sunday morning blog; it was manually published in the afternoon on Sunday. WordPress considers that missing a day. It I’d been up at 5 a.m. and published the one I wrote Saturday night, it wouldn’t have upset the counter. I wasn’t up at that hour on a Sunday, so the counter lost it’s mind.
I’m not going to fret about it, I know I didn’t miss a day. I’m going to ignore when WordPress congratulates me on 4 days in a row. Go away, you fool.
I finally conquered that inner boarder row on Cody’s quilt! I’m happy about that. It was wonderful to finally get those boarders all around the four big puppy blocks. Tomorrow, after picking up my sewing machine from the repair shop, I’m going to work on the last boarder, then the applique blocks with the puppies on them. I’m adding another puppy, too. My daughter’s family has the biggest dog I’ve ever seen. Chief is a French Mastiff, I think. He is the header photo today. Isn’t he handsome?
I think Cody will get a kick out of having Chief on his quilt. The other dog designs are with the pattern I’m using are the same size as a blown up (a little bit) Chief head. This next part will be fun! All these adorable puppy heads, paws and faces. I can’t wait to show
We’re making a lot of progress with our office reconfiguration. It will be my writing office, and the home office for my company, Jewell Publishing LLC. I’ve asked the Babe to keep my books, and to take the responsibility to keep track of all of our household paperwork, etc. I’ve done it the first 25 years of our marriage; the Babe will for the next 25. How about that for fair? I thought you’d agree.
One thing I love that being older teaches you. The bad day I had recently has just been forgotten. I had some issues working on the quilt today, but I didn’t give up; I kept at it. The older I get the less I think I should just quit. I cannot quit now; I’m close to publishing my kids book. It’s coming soon. I set a deadline of February 1 to finish the work on the children’s book. I have another one in my mind, perhaps we can get two on the shelves this year. I can dream as big as I want. We all can. Let’s be creative this year. Let’s get it done. Published. See my name in print. I can’t wait.
Thank you for reading today. I hope you have a great day, and we’ll see each other tomorrow. Be safe.
p.s. Happy Birthday Becky! Becky is Cody’s Mom, my daughter. I’m so proud of her, and of what she’s done with her life. She’s a wife, Mama, Mammography Tech, certified and various x-ray tech positions, and worked in Interventional Radiology until she and hubby Brian had children. I’m sure you’ll wear #44 well. Love you, Mom.
