As I looked out the window early this morning I knew the blah rainy days were returning as the dark clouds hung low.
I had a cake delivery this morning so I ran errands and did my weekly shopping while I was in town. Most of the stores I went into had few shoppers in them so it made my trips quick and I got home before lunch.
I'll have to remember this because this is way better than spending the entire afternoon doing these  errands.
After lunch I went down to my sewing shop to do some cutting. On this cloudy very warm day it is the ideal time to work out here as I don't have to bundle up.
I worked out there for almost 3 hours to the horror of my back muscles. As they screamed at me loudly I came inside and got on the heating pad as I relaxed out in the sunroom waiting for hubbie to get home from work.
Even with the muscle catches in my middle back I was pleased to have gotten all this cut out and ready to sew up. I cut out   4 adult jean aprons,  4 child's jean aprons,  3 full bibbed aprons, 7 baby bonnets,  2 medium bonnets,  and 5 large bonnets.
Since I moved my machines inside at least I don't have to wait for a warm day to sew these up. I have so many projects going on right now I'm going to have to schedule some time each day for each project.

The rain started about chore time tonight and has gotten harder as the night has went on and now the wind is howling out there. The weather wizards say we are out of the severe weather area but listening to that wind I'm beginning to wonder !!!!
In the decade picture project I couldn't find any 1992 January pictures and only this Basketball picture of daughter in January 2002.   Although a lot of time was spent in basketball gyms that month as daughter was in her junior year in highschool and #2 son was playing for Montreat College on a basketball scholarship.
She was #35 and was the top scorer on her team.

After exercises tonight hubbie and I watched a UNC/NC State b-ball game which UNC won.
Praying tonight that the winds and rain don't cause any damage over night for us or anyone in the way of these storms.
Thanking God for all the blessings of the day.
Good Night and God Bless.

Hope you don't have any damage. We had lots of wind last night and this morning and TONS of rain this afternoon and tonight... But--no damage that I know of around here.

You got alot of projects cut out today... Three hours is a long time to be in one spot... I'm sure your back was saying, "Enough of that!" ha ha

Hope tomorrow is a better day for both of us...
