No pictures today but a good weekend. The weather is still extremely warm for this time of the year. Ransom and I put on a good 6 miles outside and I got 7 miles on the exercise equipment. Yeah, body is a little achy this morning….we’re not as young as we used to be.

Eric made it back to school. We had it figured out that he needed to leave around 8:00am to stay in front of a weather front with snow in it. The weather kind of stalled out so Sunday morning we were letting him sleep in. We woke him about a quarter till 8, and he said he was picking a kid up in the next town at 8. So we were frantically getting him on the road. At least, this way there were no dramatic goodbyes. We talked with him a couple of times after he made it back. “ Dad, I just don’t want to be here…” Ouch. But this is the same kid that stayed 2 days after classes for a Christmas party with his Pharmacy Frat. He’ll be fine… it’s just an adjustment getting back in the routine… Who am I trying to convince… you or me?

I’m sewing on the binding on the Heart crazies quilt. I’ll have pictures in a couple of days. Then I’ve got a baby quilt to make. I had found some great pastel homespuns from Homespun Hearth.com. Ordered them. I’ve been waiting and waiting. Finally I called to check. Maybe the Internet order got misplaced. They’re just backed up because of the 3rd winter storm they’ve had. Nice people. It was so much fun to talk with someone about quilting. So, we’re going to improvise and use other fabrics.

I had better get my stuff together and head out to work.

Gratitudes:
1. My new Sugarland CD – track 3 is the best
2. Mittens
3. 9 kids in Sunday School

I'm so anxious to see the heart quilt. Glad to hear that Eric arrived back safely -- he'll be back in the swing of school before you know it *S*

If it's any consolation, 25 years ago last October I came to university in Leicester. I was so homesick that I rang my Mum and said I was only staying until Christmas. Yes, here I am, 25 years later. Living away from home is hard, no matter how old you are.

Glad Eric got back to school okay. I hope it was just a momentary homesickness and he'll be back to his old self soon. Why do kids say things like that over the phone and then leave you with your heart aching and they go on actually having a great time?!
Can't wait to see pics of the heart quilt.
Two more days and a wakeup to longarm delivery!

Good for you for getting so much exercise. I'm proud of you. Glad you got to see your son - I'm sure he enjoyed the visit, even if he didn't think it would be a manly thing to say.
