We have heat again! We had heat in the house, but it wouldn't go above a certain temperature. The technician was shortly after eight and made several adjustments, and YES - I needed to clean the filter. It amazes me that since we now lease the furnace, the company is NOT pushing down our throats to have it serviced. When we owned the furnace, they were on us like a dirty shirt to have it serviced twice a year. I'll be making some notes in my calendar to get that done.

And it's probably about time we got the ducts cleaned. Now, where are those call centers when you need one? I'll be making my own call for that!
I confess that I needed a nap yesterday. Not sure why - I'm getting lots of sleep, but maybe it was the stress of the deadlines? Well, a new week has started, and I've got more deadlines, so I had better get myself together and start prepping!
I pulled a quilt backing from the shelf the other day. It's flannel, so it took up a lot of room, and it's now washed and ready to make into a backing. I could put the last piece of backing that was sitting out away.

I still have a few bolts of fabric and lots of bolts of interfacings that won't fit on the shelves. My goal is to use up the bolts of fabric for backings and then be able to put all the bolts on the shelf. That will come, and once I get back to the community project quilts, I'll be using up lots of batting, so I should be able to get all the bolts on the shelf at some point in the next couple of months.

|MOM -- I don't want to be outside!|
|MOM -- it's great outside!|
|Mom -- I can see everything on the other side of the fence|
|MOM -- this is my good side - did you get a picture?|
|Hey -- can your family come to play with my family?|
However, Lexi isn't as skittish as she used to be. Yesterday, when I walked them separately, we passed a couple of inflatables, and Murphy was startled and barked her head off. When I passed by with Lexi, she looked and went right up to sniff them. Before, Lexi would have freaked out and backed away. I tell you, the older she gets, the bolder she gets!
Well, it's off to spin class this morning! And then Monday sewing and then lots of work! Between the computer and the sewing machine, I'll be busy today! But then, when am I not busy?
Have a super day!!!
