Q is for Quilting!

Of course! Quilting is my main hobby and mania at this time.
 Here is the next block I am sharing with the blog - should have posted it Tuesday:

This is one of the blocks from the Jane Stickle quilt.  This block is called Granny Weaver.  Instead of making it in reproduction 1860's fabrics.  I have a new project going of blocks in the pastels of the 1930's.  Yes, like I need another unfinished project.  I am much better at starting a project than at finishing one!

P is for Postcrossing and for...

As for last year, P is for Postcrossing. After quilting, it is my favorite hobby. I send off postcards to the great unknown of people out there, and then receive postcards in my mailbox.

 From the website:

About Postcrossing:
"The goal of this project is to allow people to receive postcards from all over the world, for free. Well, almost free! The main idea is that: if you send a postcard, you will receive one back from a random Postcrosser from somewhere in the world....The element of surprise of receiving postcards from different places in the world (many of which you probably have never heard of) can turn your mailbox into a box of surprises - and who wouldn't like that?"

So much fun, in a quiet way, to receive mail other than bills and advertising.
Recently in my mailbox:

Card from Thailand (top) and China (bottom).  Both with wonderful stamps, too.

Now for the other P that is an important part of my life.  And that is poop.  I will not get graphic, but any mom with three children knows that dealing with poop is part of the job.  And though my children are grown I still have problems with one of them, not using the toilet often enough.  Enough said.

I have a page on Facebook: keep up with my infrequent quilt and stamp posts at

O is for Obsession

Every so often the song Obsession by Animotion gets played on the radio, and then it gets stuck in my head. An earworm, if you will.
Sometimes, I don't even need to hear the music on the radio.  Ah the 80's.

Here is a link to the music video.  It's a really bad music video but I love the song anyway.

N is for Nap

How I would have liked to take a nap at work today. I felt so sleepy on the drive home.
Babies and little children take naps.  Cats take naps. Older children do NOT want to take naps, no way, that is babyish.

And then time goes by.  We become middle-aged.  A nap is appealing again. one might feel a little funny about this, but after awhile you realize the nap is refreshing.  My, I am feeling sleepy just typing this.  Maybe it's time for my post-dinner nap....
