Up early and on the road, alittle bit of rain, temps were cold but we did ok. The phone rings..........it was the oldest grandson(he's 5) he said "are you driving?' of course I said yes, "to our house?" again yes, "how long before you get here?" I tired to give him as close a guess as I could on our arrival time. Next the youngest one gets on, "what's taking so long!?" by this time I'm in stitches over the excitement of these two and wishing I had recorded this phone call.....it was priceless! From then on time stood still or so it seemed, giggle. Just knowing they couldn't wait for us to get there. We arrived, they were excited, the pups were excited, giggle. An afternoon of just hanging out, a pot of spaghetti and homemade sauce for supper, Yum, Yum.
Today we'll be baking cookies to leave for Santa. And whatever else we can think of. Planning on a fun filled day, hope you are too.
The Express will be stopped here for the Holidays, to enjoy time with our family. I wish you all a Holly Jolly Christmas. Enjoy your families, friends and traditions.

We will unload in the morning and then wait for a relaod and head back in a northerly direction. Back into reality. I have some things with me to work on if I get a minute. Some things I need to work on when I get back home, whenever that might be. And I'm in the mood to make another quilt.
I'll be popping around to other blogs to see what you all have been up to. It also makes me feel I have contact with other intelligient life form, giggle. Now that I'm ginger ornies are done I'm looking for inspiration for what to make next. Inspire me!
Until then.........................Prim Blessings

A snow flurry every once in a while outside, still cold. The kind of cold that goes right through you. Hubby says tomorrow it's suppose to rain, so that means it will have to warm up! We'll be headed out tomorrow, to warmer weather. I'll finish what I can today and then get everything ready for travel.
I don't have much today, but wanted to pop on and post something. I'll be visiting others and leaving a comment here and there. Love reading everyone's posts and Thanks for visiting my blog and leaving me a comment.
As the Express gets ready to pull out, I'll be posting in a day or so.
Until then............................................Warm Hugs,

We left home yesterday, headed south. All was well the first hundred miles or so, then we ran into rain. The rain turned to a mix of rain and snow, then snow, then rain and snow again. Cloudy, dreary, dark, you know the kind of day I'm talking about. The temps in the low 30's, but above the freezing mark although barely. By the time we stopped for the night we had ran out of the snow and the rain ended shortly after we stopped. I know we had snow at home just not sure how much or if it is still there. Maybe my BIL(you know who you are) will post me a comment and let me know the weather, giggle.
Here in the south it's in the low 50's, kinda cool, but I'll take this over snow anyday. Thinking about calling work tomorrow and just telling them I'll see them next spring, lol. Hoping you are warm and dry where ever you are.
Will find out what the week will be after we unload tomorrow. Check back to see where the next adventure will be.
Until then.....................Prim Blessings

The sad note is the passing of my cousin Larry. His dad and my dad were just 20 years and 2 days apart in age, they came from a big family! Larry has been my only cousin to keep in touch on a regular basis, sometimes just a forward, but I always knew he was there. I had gotten an email from him on Nov. 12th telling me he had bad news. He had liver cancer, started having problems the end of October and the Dr. had just confirmed it. Told me he didn't know how much time he had and hoped to make it through Christmas. His son and dil just had a new baby recently. He thanked me for being such a good cousin and told me he loved me. That was my last email. I found out he had passed away by reading it on another blog last night, he passed away last Monday, and his funeral was yesterday. I'm still in shock. I wish someone had called me. And the day I told hubby about the email he said we should go see him, I should not have waited. It was only 5 days after his last email that he passed away. I will miss him. Take nothing for granted, my heart said I should go and I didn't.
On a happier note the weather was a little warmer today. Hope you all had a good day. I have my work done and now am going to work on finishing up my part of those team effort ornies, giggle. Hope the painter is ready!

The weather is cold today, but not as bad as yesterday. Tomorrow is to be even better.
I'll post more later.

I have to say Congratulations to my friend PammyJo over at Grammy's Altered Life. She became a Great Grandmama on Monday. Hop over to her blog to see the Cutest Baby on the Planet. She is adorable.
We have a couple of days at home. And of course there's always errands to run. I wish for a couple of days at home with nothing to do but craft, Ha! I am going to make some ornies while I'm home and my friend PammyJo will do the required painting. A team effort, giggle, I sew, she paints, we both get ornies. Perfect!
And, my blog finally got a makeover! I'm now ready for the Holiday season, atleast my blog is. I have gotten some shopping done. Have some things to get made, and a few more things to buy.
I just got a New pattern for a Great carryall bag. I can't wait to have time to start it. I'll shop for fabric and notions, so when I get time, I'll be ready.
Supper is in the oven, so time is up for now. I'll post more later.

While waiting for time to pick them up I went to a quilt shop, a favorite of mine in Kalona, Iowa. Love this little shop, the woman that owns it is very sweet and the amish work in the store for her. The quilts are fabulous. I found a pattern for a couple of cute little bags and a Great little pinkeep to add to my collection.
And I'm posting a pic of a stocking I'm taking with me this trip. Not sure there will be time for it, but I'll have it if there is.
We'll be heading for warmer weather for the next few days. I won't mind it at all, it's getting colder as we speak and talk of snow. Not my favorite word. I hope you all have a Good weekend and week ahead.
I'm still waiting for my blog makeover and getting very anxious. It was only suppose to be 7 days and now it's almost two weeks.
Until we meet again...........Keep warm..............Happy Everything!

Update on the quilt. I did get it sewn together, have to press the seams and take it to the quilting lady. I'll post a pic when I get it back from her. It'll be a great quilt for warmth and comfort on the cold days coming.
A Birthday giveaway is going on over at the The Pickled Pepper Patch, www.charsethman.blogspot.com. Char is giving a prim toaster cover away in honor of her daughters birthday. It's fabulous!! I put my name in to win, I'd love to have it on my kitchen counter. Char always has great ideas and tips, pop on over and check it out.
Unload tomorrow and then????? We'll see. Have a Great day!
Until then...................Prim Blessings

And I'm starting a "New" quilt. It's made entirely of flannel fabric. so it will be warm and comforting on the cold days ahead. The pic above is what it looks like now. I'll cut everything today and hope to start sewing today or tomorrow.
I'm making a big pot of homemade spaghetti sauce for our supper. It's the best and smells wonderful as it simmers.
Hope you all are having a good week and productive crafting. Check back for updates on the progress of my latest quilt.
Until later.....................Happy quilting!

Soooooooooo, A BIG THANK YOU to BIL (you know which one you are)! We called and got him out of bed and he came to pick us up and all MY things, lol. Hubby only had 2 little bags. Well, I had cleaned my truck out!! So I had all these things, of which he'll not let me forget anytime soon. Took us 60 miles one way to work, with a pup stop on the way. Well, the "Girls" had to go. Then gets us to work and my truck isn't back from the shop yet, LOL. Had to wait 45 minutes for it to get there so we could unload ALL my things, ROFL! Thank goodness for big brothers!
