If Only...

I saw this photo on the Chicken soup for the soul and thought,
 "If I could teach my cats to do this, just think how much more productive I could actually be!!" 
 I have 5 cats so it could be LOT!!!


It kind of looks like Jack doesn't it?

I did manage to get some sewing done tonight, watching the Olympics, of course, who isn't? 
 I got all the binding done on one of the quilts I made for Jacquie for one of her patterns. 
 It needs to go to her this week for it's professional photo shoot! 
 One more thing to tick off my "to do" list.  

Have you been watching the Olympics? 
Our friend Allison Schmidt won a GOLD medal in the 200 free. 
 She won the event by over 2 seconds, which is HUGE in swimming.
  She is the second fastest in the world and broke the American and Olympic records!!! 
 WTG Allison!!!  
We are so proud of you!!

My daddy turned 86 today.
  I sent him a card and have made him a quilt. 
 I sent it to Pauline to bind (she gave me a binding coupon for my birthday). 
 I hope to have it back before the end of the month.
Although she has been super busy (you know this if you read her blog)
 
 At 86 you just have no idea how many more days you will have with him. 
 I called him tonight and he said, "for some reason, I thought you were coming to see me today". 
On a Wednesday dad? 
 Really?
  They wont' let me of work for your birthday! LOL.  
I am hoping to go and see him maybe on Saturday but we will see, the weekends are always so  busy!!
  He told me to "Stay in touch" as if I wouldn't do that, haha.  

I hope you are all enjoying the Olympics and I will be back soon!!

Happy birthday to your Dad.

I am missing the olympics. I had bunyun surgery Monday. Then Tuesday I spent most the day watching The Lord of the Rings. It took me 3 days to complete.
