Weather Alert – it has been Spring here for the last 12 days, now we go back to winter for the rest of the year starting tomorrow. I am looking forward to some winter days ahead and have decided to make some Banana Bread and Carrot Bread this next week. Then I have promised Clay that I will make some homemade Chili and fix some enchiladas for him. I am thinking about baked chicken and scalloped potatoes for Christmas Lunch! We shall see if I get it all done!
Happy Day! Yesterday the problems with my new Apple Watch have been resolved! Thanks to James at Apple Support. For the last 6 weeks I have spent most of my time trying to find someone who has the initiative to really dig into the problem. Yesterday stumbled across 2 individuals who worked on the phone connection issue (Version) and Apple and by 6:00 pm all things are fixed! This is after returning 2 of the new watches (2 from Verizon and 1 from Apple), the problem was not with the hardware (watch), but with the way the watch works with LTE connection and Wi-Fi. I am very happy!

With all the interruptions it will not shock you that I have not completed many of my goals for my applique, quilting, or anything to do with fun. Here are my weekly accomplishments.
- New tires on the Navigator – Done
- Detail the inside of the Town Car – Done (Hard physical work)
- Make a zillion calls to Verizon and Apple – DONE (Mental wipeout days)
- Detail the inside of the Navigator – Done (Hard physical work)
- More calls to Verizon and Apple – Completed on 13 December 2022!
- Sleep well Tuesday night – Done!
- Exercise – Missed 3 days this week – Done with excuses/interruptions for the month
- OH Yes – I have completed tracing all the blocks (5) for In My Garden and did applique some stems on one of the blocks – Done
When I woke up this morning I just kept thinking it was Saturday – you know the feeling when we were all still working and on a Friday we had finished a project and had the week-end to look forward for rest and relaxation – WELL, that is how I feel today, but it is only Wednesday! I feel free from Unforeseen Requirements – 18 days before 2023, and I am happy to see the new year come. Maybe it will be a slow going year, especially since there is no place to travel to during the Flu Season! Of course one must think about the state of Biden Country when traveling with all the uninvited illegal aliens. But I will say I love Elon Musk! He is a true Patriot!
Here are some goals for me this next week and through the end of the year!.
- Load a practice quilt!
- Quilt as many quilts as I can (hopefully 10 by New Year’s Eve!)
- Start on a baby quilt
- Stick to a goal to work on applique and binding of the 4 quilts in the evening.
- Walk every day the rest of December!
I am sad to see that Linda will not be doing To Do Tuesday anymore after 27 December. I would love to take the Host duties over, BUT, until I know that life is really going to calm down with fewer interruptions, I cannot do it. It would be nice to see this weekly link up party going forward into 2023. Maybe there are 4 quilters who could do one Linky Party once a month with one point of contact who would provide a link to the person hosting it each week.
I personally thank Linda for all the time she spent providing all Quilters an opportunity to showcase our work. Hats off to you for all the hours that you gave us. It is appreciated.
Have a wonderful week as it appears this month is flying by enjoy stitching!
