Hi Marie. That was a great link.
Of course, here in the core city we can see no constellations, so that's why the one brilliant planet really stood out. Last night were were supposed to have a chance to see the northern lights, but it was too cloudy.
I went to the fabric store today and Simplicity patterns were all $1.99 and I found one I sort of like (for curtains) but then could find no fabric. They had lots of glitzy chiffon and tulle and satin for making prom dresses. And also bolts and bolts of fleece for making those two layer blankets that you tie on the edges.
Then I thought I should make a colorful shower curtain, to use with a plain liner from the dollar store, but, of course, had no measurements and didn't want to guess, nor to walk 4 blocks to Target to get the dimensions off a package.
I guess I might be itching to sew something, but I think the cutting will be really hard on my wrists
Have a good weekend, Marie.

Thank you for your welcome. While this is a "club" I definitely did NOT want to join, it is nice to know there is a place to go with questions and for support.

Marie. Very well written concise and informative. There were things I did not know. You know me ever vigilant. I do report things. I even send a birthday if the last time here was 2009. Tom just called. He is on his way. Lent fish on Friday so he will have to take me to the fish market later. 73 here but dreary. My best to Ed. HUGS,Reed

Good Morning,Marie. While in my mind...REMINDER we SPRING AHEAD Saturday night. Seems early. We both had good nights but Russ did say I wish I had more ZIP in the morning. My BG 102. I hope you had a good night and your readings are all over the place. With Ed's situation you must be stressed out. I pray the Rosary and am so mad my prayers are not being answered. I think this stress is causing your erratic numbers. I have the dentist at 10L45.I hope he finds nothing. I see they moved our photos back. Any plans for today? Tell Ed I am thinking about him and hoping. Try to have a good day. Take care. HUGS, POPS

Good Morning,Marie. I see on the birthdays they moved our photos to the middle. I did not sleep too well. Russ very concerned about wheter he will need 2 operation. They changed the order from a Cat Scan to an MRI. He has it on Friday. I hope the growth not serious. Someone just reminded me we change our clocks ahead Sat night. That seems early. Did you have a good night? I sure do hope so. Were your readings all over the place? My BG was 102. All packed up and will leave soon for Tops. My very best to Ed. I hate to see you depressed. I wish there were a Happy Magic Bullet I could send yu. Take good care. I care. HUGS,PPS

Good Morning,Marie. The Bug Man is here what a talker. It is a necessity in Florida with the dampness and humidity. I never see a bug. He comes 2x a year better be safe than sorry. Something caught up to me my BG 118. TOPS tomorrow. First meeting of the month. Because the church is so good to us they charge $50 a month for 4 rooms. We all bring something for thir food pantry. I am taking a big bottle of Ragu and pasta. Elections too. I do not want a 5th term but I bet I get it. It is a nice outlet for you to have Quilts of Valor and you enjoy it. They are on the phone with Russ now setting up the Cat Scan repeat.Insurance never heard of his request.order. What a mess. I hope they work it out. My best to Ed..does he have any leads. Have a good day.HUGS,Reed
