Oh noooooo JOnna!  I hope your machine did not hear our discussions!

hubby and I are going to check out the Speed Queen models tomorrow.  I am ever so glad we have time to check them out and plan and not make a speedy decision.

Lynne, it does look scarey, doesn't  it?   Those fires are all in very rural , heavily wooded areas.  To be sure, there are people living there but it's  not like being in the suburbs.

The smoke is the worst for us.  Air quality is horrible.   The sky is orange and looks very apocalyptic.

go to a paint store and get me some paint chips of the colors she liked. Then when I got to Arizona and had picked out a pattern I took her paint chips to a fabric store and selected my fabric.

What a great way to get the colors the recipient prefers!  I've got to remember that.

  Anyway, I'll soon have a repairman check this one out, and like Judy said, maybe a belt is all it needs.  

We'll hope so!

Hi everyone, gosh I had a lot to read!

Ami, I’m so sorry Mark is struggling health wise. Lots of prayers. ♥

Carolyn that quilt is lovely!

Judy that move to CO sounds perfect. 

On the retreat challenge, you can make anything you wish as long as it is 30 X 30 or smaller. 

Viola I’m glad your Dad is recovering well and getting his voice back. Enjoy your time with him. 

my hand is healing yay yay. My DD is due      Oct. 28th, her baby shower is next Saturday!     A bit of a challenge with one hand lol. I’m so excited to be a Nana. ♥

I am glad your hand is healing. Hopefully better each day and you will have full use of it soon.

DH is stable but he is definitely not out of the woods. He is on 6 new meds and wears a vest to monitor his heart. Hopefully the Dr can figure out how to fix the afib. 

I’m SO excited! He’s got the floor 75% in. It’s nice strong material. That makes me SO happy ?? ?? And the color looks really good!

It's so good to see you back to check in.  Enjoy each moment as you anticipate being a Nana!!
