Am I the only one experiencing this issue with my phone?? Hello? Is anyone else out there? I submitted a claim yesterday, and we'll see how quickly they move. In the meantime, I will NO LONGER be answering my phone. It's just too frustrating to have a conversation with anyone, and you will have to get in touch by text or e-mail.
While I didn't get a chance to watch all the pomp and circumstance of the Queen's Jubilee yesterday, I watched some of the replays. I swear that Prince Louis stole the show. His facial expressions were adorable, and they will come back to haunt him (in a cute way) for the rest of his life. But I think the most precious moment was when he turned his face up to the Queen and asked her a question. So sweet, and what a great moment for the Queen to share with her great-grandson.
It's a shame the Queen won't be able to celebrate in person today, but HEY -- if you think about it, she has been the Queen for longer than I've been alive! I hope she's at home, with her feet in bunny slippers, having a cuppa, and watching the whole thing unfold on TV. Imagine having a job that you can't retire from! WOW!!
As usual, I went for a walk, and I had some errands to do and no time to ride my bike. That is this weekend! I carried two more bags of fabric to Diane's house. On my way, I decided to take a slight detour and vote as it was our provincial election yesterday.

Then I stopped by Diane's house and dropped off the two bags of fabric (I know -- who votes with two large bags of fabric in their hands?) Then I picked up some scraps and a couple more quilt tops.
|Two more quilt tops done!|
Here are the two quilt tops I picked up the day before.

I have to mention that Diane lives very close to me. In the winter, I can see her house, which is on the other side of the forest. However, if I want to get to Diane's house, I have to walk around to the next street. Anyway -- there are days when I think how easy it would be to wing the bags of fabric over the fence and call her to let her know they are there! That's not going to happen, but I think it sometimes.
Then I was off to the library to pick up a book that I had reserved -- now that my account was free!
|Another book to read|
Then I walked back home. That took a little over an hour, and I had a wee chat with one of the librarians and looked through the used book sale rack. Some exciting stuff coming up with the library -- just wait for that!
So I got my errands done, AND I walked about 5 KM or something like that. Bottom line - I walked almost 15 KM yesterday. How did that happen? Oh yes --- this also happened yesterday.
I got to work on that large quilt, but not before I ran into that darn error on the software again. I need to get the new version loaded and find out why this is happening. But all is good - the error came while I was setting up the pattern again. If I didn't tell you what had happened, you would NOT know.

As you know, I'm not always the best with technology, and I've tried in the past, but yesterday I succeeded. Yeah!!!!! That meant I could find two more books that I've been looking for, and they are now on hold.
I'm sure I'll laugh when I find the book I wanted to find yesterday. It's probably in a safe and logical place, but where would that be?
I know I will have to be ruthless when it comes to all this paper. I know that I will want to look at everything before I throw it away. That's me -- don't try to change me. I sincerely hope that I get faster at it as I go, which I'm sure I will. But it's not so bad that I didn't manage to rifle through almost every box in here. There are two tubs that I didn't get to and ONE box. I doubt it's either of those, but you never know. I might just check or wait for the book to come from the library.
To make it easier??? I might just grab one box of crap every day and deal with that. If I get energized, I can go through more than one. But it's a bit depressing, although I know I'll feel better if I get it cleaned up. Oh my -- could this actually be happening?
Don't forget that the Hamilton Quilt show is TODAY and tomorrow. I'm going today, so I'd better get myself organized.
Have a super day!!!!
