Busy week

Yet another week has flown by. I was quite busy this week, and didn't get to do a whole lot of crafting. But I was able to finish up two little pieces. I think I will end up making this into a little pillow, but for now I hung it up temporarily with tape. I have a bowl with some eggs that I'd like to put it in. The other piece was tiny, that is why I made the one above. Didn't want to waste the weavers cloth. Had to fill something in! This one is just 2 1/4"x 1 1/2". The tin was given to me a long time ago from my friend Beth. I have to laugh, and I'm sure she will when I say this is one less thing out of my closet LOL. That closet is soooo full of stuff that needs to have something done with. Especially all those frames, eh Beth lol?? I'm determined to make a dent this year. But my goodness, it's almost April!! I have to start thinking about Colonial Day in September. That will be here before we know it. Funny, I think it is usually April that I start making stuff for that too. It's going to be a busy month for sure! (Focus Kathy, Focus!!!) lol I did a bit of test driving of new cars yesterday and today. A total of 7 yesterday and 1 today. I think that is about it. Now we need to sit down and weigh out the pro's and con's. I did the test driving by myself since George is working and I guess because it will be my car. I have to say it was tiring, but yesterdays weather was so nice, it was quite enjoyable. I took notes on each of them. The guy was very patient. Some of the cars that I thought were at the top of my list are now out of the picture. Amazing when you drive them, how they can burst your bubble. So I'm glad that part is over. I'm sure when it gets down to 2 or 3, I will test drive them one more time. I'm curious to see what we end up with. The exciting part of yesterday was my last test drive. It was a Hyundai. Hope I didn't butcher the spelling of that one. Anyway, a guy came out and handed me this card and said it something for fun if you test drive a car. I said that is what i'm here for and put it in my pocket book. Drove the car, went in side to talk a bit and then he said did you want to scratch off the card. I almost forgot about it. I said sure. He had to get his manager to come over to watch. You could win $10, $100, or $1000.00. Well, I won $100!!! I was tickled. And I think they were too, because all they've been handing out is $10. Not bad for test driving a car! Nicole's 16'th birthday is next Friday, so this will come in very handy. See, God does provide..... In sooo many different ways!
Thursday was such a miserable day with all that rain. It was Nicole's first track meet that day, and I had to help out with the concession stand. Those kids were soaked and freezing. I was at least under the tent, but got wet when I stepped out to watch her run. The relay she was in came in first, but the others weren't her best times. It's just the beginning, and I know all the kids will improve as the weeks go by. Especially when the nicer weather comes.
Monday I have the Chambersburg group to go to. I've been missing so many groups lately with being sick, car troubles, mil's doctor's appointments. I had ordered my #8 townsend cutter blade, and really thought it would have been here by today. I called the people who I ordered it from, and guess it will get here Monday. Soo, I don't know what I'll take to work on yet. I will be figuring that out when I get home from church tomorrow.
Have not been sleeping well. It's really getting annoying. Have been up since 3:00 this morning. I've tried going to bed early, late, it just doesn't make a difference. It's all because of the hot flushes. I started exercising regularly again, so I'm hoping that will make a difference soon. Ahhh, the joys of getting older!

Enjoy the coming week! Get those hands busy..
