Linda McKinney, where are you?   General Discussion

Started Aug-17 by JulietDeltaOscar (fixin2quilt); 570 views.

I've been trying to get in touch with Linda the last couple of days.  I sent her a message on Facebook on her birthday, and then another FB message yesterday, but got no response.  I guess I need to try texting her phone next.  Has anyone heard from her lately?  I know she's likely very busy with her family and all they are doing to build that barndominium, but I just want to hear it from her.  Let me know if anyone talks to her.  Wanted to touch base with her on a couple of things about the 2024 retreat also.  I know she was going to have eye surgery too, but I can't remember when that was supposed to be.  Anyway, if you talk to her, tell her I am hoping to hear how she is doing.  Linda, if you're lurking around out there, tell us how you are!  

Thanks - Jonna

Sorry, Jonna, I've not been on facebook lately.  I'm right here, but not active on the computer.  My eye surgery is done, and I would suppose it is healed.  I can see better than before, and have to go get my Texas drivers license now.  Hope they will let me take the eye test with my shades, since I have nhot had my regular glasses changed yet.  If I just had any idea how to het pictures from my phone to the computer I would show you guys some pictures of the barn as it is right now.  The outside is up, the rooms are framed up inside, electrical and gas is run.  The fireplace is set in, and the bathtub is set.  Little changes ar having to be made, but anyone who has done any building knows about that.  Been shopping for appliances, ceiling fans, doors, and such.  Forgot how much deciding you have to do when you are putting a house together.  I have done some sewing.  Made a queen size quilt from the leftovers of fabric my DDIL got for a baby quilt.  She is new at this, and still is in fabric buying mode.  Can hardly wait til I can get my stuff out of storage and in the new sewing room,  Mine doesnt have the view that Judy's has, nor is it quite as big, but will be so much better than the dining room table and various closets we are using now.  Now I'm rambling along.  

Jonna, as far as I know, my plans havent changed as far as the retreat is concerned.  Still would like to carpool with you and Patty.  Just realized  it is already August, so October is just around the corner.  Looking forward to the next retreat.  

I finally got Sharon's house sold.  We ar supposed to close August 31.  I've signed enough papers to float a mule, so I hope everything goes alright.  Now, if I could just finish with my house in Amarillo, I could feel like I'm about set.  I do lurk and read, enjoying everybody's pictures--just dont do much posting myself.  I dont have any news except for the barn and house sale, just need to get myself out of my hole and join the rest of the world.  I promise I am working on that.  Everybody, looking forward to seeing you in February.

Your house project sounds so exciting! It will all come together and soon you will be able to enjoy your new space.

Hi, Linda.  I am so glad to hear from you, and that you are not lost or sick or something!  Sounds like things are progressing well on the barndominium, and when it is done and you are all moved in, I am really going to come and see it, as it's not that far to drive from here.  

I do need to touch base with you with regard to retreat possibilities, as some plans have changed.  Can you answer my private message on Facebook?  If not, I will give you a call soon to discuss.  (I think I have it from last year's retreat list.)  

Good to hear from you - Thanks.  Jonna

So glad to see you post.  I had been thinking of you.  Sounds like  your new home is progressing.  Sounds exciting.  Glad you have been able to sell Sharon's home.  Hope everything works out to close on the 31st.  We were just in Arlington for our Granddaughter's college graduation.  We are at Carolyn's now in Kansas, leaving tomorrow.   I'll call you after we get home.

Now there's an intriguing image.  Just how many papers DO you need to "float a mule"?   LOL!

I am so happy to read you are getting so very much done.  I'm excited for you to get stuff out of storage and be able to spread into your new sewing area no matter the view.  Just to be able to feel free to do things that feed your soul is going to help you make it the rest of the hole quickly!  I hope you have not suffered too badly in the extreme heat so much of TX has suffered through this summer.  My stars!!?!!

Hope all the Phoenix business is completed and you can concentrate on the future.  See you in February.  Keep in touch.
