Have You Had A Nap Today?
No, I'm not talking about my 5 year old grandson.He gets really grumpy with out his nap, but I speaking of myself.It was my day to spend with Mom and we had a special treat today. My older sister,Mary(Nails in My Pocket)spent a portion of the day with us. We had a great time. We only hit one consignment store. Mom tires so easy. Then we stopped for lunch at McDonald's, then on to do our shopping at WalMart. It was a great day. Mom is going to be featured in a video for a Valentine's Day function at her church. They are having the meal catered for the evening of family fellowship. We were planning for that day. Several of the daughters, and hopefully a couple of nieces plan to attend with Mom. She is so excited. Most of us girls have attended various functions with Mom, over the years, with her church, so they know most of us girls even though it is not our church. They always treat us as if it were.
When we returned from shopping, Mary went on home. It was around 1:00, but Mom rushed in and set out my cot. We always take a nap on our day together. I started doing that a few years ago. Mom doesn't sleep well at night,so I felt she needed the nap, although I'm usually ready for one myself.But lately our nap has ended up being 2 hours long instead of our usual 1 hour. You can probably guess what's happening at my house. I am up till 1:00 in the morning, wide awake. Today I picked up a couple of new quilting tools, and I am enjoying using them tremendously. I don't want to stop, and it's 1:00 already, plus I have the grandkids tomorrow. I will need that nap then, for sure.I have posted a picture of my new tools and a small quilt I have been working on. I have said it before, I am not a quilter, but I could learn to like it much better, if I wasn't too tight to purchase a few tools to make things flow better.Just these new tools alone may help encourage me to do a little more quilting.I think I am winding down from my nap, so till my next entry,Happy Blogging. Good Night All!
