A day late is on time…


I am a day late with this week’s
Friendly Fill-Ins and Celebrating the Small Things,
but in my world these days it counts as on time.
So, here goes.

Friendly Fill-Ins Week 20

  1. The last movie I saw at the theater was so long ago I have no idea what it was!


2. The title of my autobiography would be  Crazy  Complexities, Complications, and Confusions. I think that describes my life quite well.


3. I would love to learn how to refinish/reupholster furniture…I think, but then maybe not.      See #2. 


4. I am glad that I learned to crochet because it is relaxing while doing something      productive, I make gifts for friends and sometimes for people I don’t know, and it keeps    me off the streets and out of the bars.


Celebrating the Small Things

This week I celebrate:

  • The weather is changing and I am so ready for cooler temps.
  • I finished one of two gifts that are needed next month.
  • I got through the day at work though I wanted to go home because I felt awful and thought I would feel better at home. As it was I got sicker when I got home but that is ok…it’s always better to be worse at home. 🙂
  • Today I feel fine.

All in all, it was a pretty good week!

  1. This was such a fun read, I loved the spirit of it! I would definitely read a book with that title because it sounds quite interesting! I like to learn new things, but then I quickly tire of that and move on to something else. Hence my craft supplies in many boxes. 🙂 I do love to crochet, especially in cooler weather, it keeps my hands busy too. I had to laugh at the thought of you hanging out in the bars, maybe we’d better send you some yarn!! LOL Nothing is worse than being sick at work when all you want to do is go home. I’m glad you made it through the day, and that it didn’t get worse until you go home. I’m even more glad that you were feeling better the next day. Some days are just not fun. But you did have good things to count and that’s what matters. I hope the rest of this week goes great for you!

    1. I have learned to just look at all the crafts in the stores and not buy them. Too much has been given to Goodwill over the years. Although, I do have a sizable yarn stash. The week is lovely with lots that needs to be done. Gotta figure out how to best use my time. About the bars, there was a time…

    1. Doubt I will ever write a book of any kind. Just not that ambitious. My gramma taught me to crochet when I was about 7 or 8 but I didn’t really do much of it until my late 20’s. Very glad she taught me! I will enjoy Autumn if it ever comes to stay awhile.

  2. Better late than never. Thank you for participating in the fill-ins. I like the title you chose for your autobiography. I love crocheting too, it is relaxing. I am glad you feel better already. Have a great weekend!

    1. The weekend was ok and the new week starting out just fine! I have started the second crochet project and it is coming along quite nicely. Have a friend getting married need to start something for her.

  3. That was such a fun fill-in post. I just enjoyed your words, because my brain was too tired to come up with my own. I went out for coffee with a friend, and we talked non-stop for 4 hours. My mind needs crutches to get to bed.

    1. Isn’t it wonderful to be with a friend you are so comfortable with? I have a couple like that and I delight in time spent with them. Hope you got the rest you need and can toss the crutches.

  4. Patricia, Crazy Complexities could be the name of my story, too. lol If I had a workshop then learning how to do reupholstering would be kinda cool. Our living room furniture needs replacing but if I knew how to reupholster then I could save us a lot of money. The weather is forecast to change in the new week and I’m looking forward to it, too. I say, “Bring it on, Mother Nature!”

    1. Our weather is a bit cooler but the weather man said it would be fall like. Wrong still summer like but not h***ish. I am looking for a new sofa…easy-peasy since I work in a furniture store!

  5. The last time I went to the cinema was in the 80s! I love the cinema, especially that yummy, greasy popcorn, but TV is so much cheaper — and I can make my own popcorn! Your #2 & #3 cracked me up! It’s awesome you crochet and particularly that you give it away as gifts. That’s so generous! I’m pretty desperate for cooler weather too. I’m glad you’re feeling better. Have a great weekend!

    1. Yep, things are back to normal…whatever that is. It is too expensive to go to the movies! Besides it is so much more comfortable at home. Hope you get some cool breezes soon.

  6. Oh, cooler temps would be SO nice. We’re expecting them to finally leave around the 90’s for lower 70’s on Monday. I hope those weather men are finally right. Glad all’s going better for you!

    1. Seems summer is lingering here. In a couple of weeks the State Fair comes to town and it always brings cool weather with it. I think that is the best part of the fair!

  7. A day late is on time — that happens to me a lot. I can’t wait for cooler temps. Today has been around 60 F which is nice. I’m so done with the 90s F. Glad you’re feeling better. Hope you’re having a good weekend!
