Thursday, So nice, Sew nice :)

     Yesterday, Sis took mom out and about. I hit my machine at 12:18 and by 3:00 had as much work done as I usually get done in a full day.  Mostly because it was quiet with no interruptions. I could knock out my piles of work and it was wonderful.  I have a second fitting on a Wedding dress today and I will start on another.

     I just pulled two chickens out of the freezer and thawed them last night.  They are boiling for chicken salad for the party on Saturday.  The older two girls are due in tonight with all the grandsons so I thought I would have chicken off the bone, with gravy over mashed potatoes and biscuits, some kind of vegetable.  Hub's and I need to go to the store and get grandchildren food.

     Sis is out running an errand and she will come and get mom so I can have the afternoon free.  We are moving mom over to Lil sis's house for the remainder of the weekend as my house will fill with my own kids.  Lil sis has set up a day bed in her TV room next to the 1/2 bath for mom.  Even though mom can still do stairs, it is hard at the end of a long day to get her up them.  Lil sis's bathroom on her second floor is a much longer way away from mom's upstairs bathroom causing some accident problems.  We just keep trying to solve these problems as they arise.  It is all we can do.

     I am going to get a few more things knocked out in the shop.  There is a prom dress and another coming in this afternoon.  I have a pageant costume that needs an over haul and I hope to finish the wedding dress that is tried on today.  I would like to get another dress ready for a back lace up if possible. Yesterday it was jeans and overalls today it is fancy clothes.  I am blessed with work.

     My baby chicks are getting pin feathers and I swear they have doubled in size since last Friday.  The older hens are all laying again.   Some every day and others every other day.  The Easter grass is ready for its first cutting.  I will take pictures for tomorrow's blog.  I wanted grandson to be able to cut the grass when he gets here.  I always loved having my turn to do that when I was little.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
