Yesterday was a great retreat day for me, although it got off to a slow start. I had trouble sleeping Saturday night and woke up at 1:15 am and didn’t get back to sleep before the alarm went off for DH at 2:45 am. I stayed in bed while he finished packing and got ready to leave. I finally went out to the couch to read some emails hoping I would get sleepy.
I looked out the front window and discovered it was snowing. I had no idea it supposed to snow. I checked weather.com and the forecast said we would get 1 – 2 inches of snow throughout the morning. No big deal. I decided to take some NyQuil since I had a little bit of congestion and sinus headache and needed some sleep.
Next thing I knew it was 8:15. I had a little over 4 hours of wonderful sleep. I climbed out from under the warm quilts, started the coffee pot and looked out the front window. It was still snowing and there was at least 2 inches of snow! Hooray, I thought. Falling snow, football replays and all day to spend quilting. I was ecstatic!
So what did I spend the day doing? I finished my PIF packages and prepped everything for mail. Then I worked on my football nickel swap packages so I would be ready to swap them out when all of the swap packages arrived. By then the replay of the Patriots/Redskins final season game was on and I hadn’t prepped any Butterfly Garden blocks so I decided to finish the binding on DIL’s All About Me quilt while watching the game.
After a short nap I prepped two Daisy blocks for appliqué. I’m making the first one with the freezer paper on top. I haven’t gotten far enough to make any comments on this method so stay tuned.
As you can tell I didn’t get any packing done, but my sewing table is a little cleaner. I must have a mental on packing by myself. This coming weekend I’ll make sure DH and I pack some on Saturday. We have a little over two weeks before closing and I don’t want be here packing when the movers are here on the 15th.
