Mr O'Quilts was awakened at 7:30 this am because he was on call..He worked until 11am. So now what does the man do to "relax"?????? He has decided to take down the Christmas tree. I am crabby as crabby can be. I love that Christmas tree. It is still fresh and beautiful. He is in there with classical music playing and down go the lights and down go the ornaments. I am holed up grumpy in my sewing room. On last night's messy table I found these, small HSTs from the corners of some quilt forever ago..whatever... I "relaxed" by sewing them into pinwheels.
Mr. O'Quilts from the upstairs office has declared, once again, an austerity program. He has given me, in the downstairs office, notice that he plans to retire and one day, he will come home and announce...."I retired today!!". He said that there will be a transition period between paychecks, so financial prudence is the new word. Now, that is an unpleasant thought.....financial prudence...hmmmm. It is especially unfortunate since my PayPal finger has developed such muscle these past 6 months I have been injured!!!!
Now who sits around and sews 3.5 inch pinwheels...although they are kind of nice. I just took a sneak onto the porch...UGH....I found the 24 big empty Christmas boxes waiting for me...sigh, guess tomorrow I will put away the snowman collection and the Santa collection.
Oh, no...here he comes to so sweetly ask me to hold the base of the tree while he lifts it from the stand. I must put my face into the sweet smelling tree and say goodbye. It has been up a month and still is lovely. Saying goodbye is always the hardest...blah, blah, blah!
