Project 365 - Week 36

Here's a look at my world straight out of the camera.

Sunday 8/28 - Saturday 9/3


My mom's dog Buster with one of her quilts in progress.  Nothing's better than having a mother for a quilter as you will see later in this post.


A cool grasshopper that Chris caught on our front window.


Keds that my mom gave me.  They were my grandmother's.  I'll never be able to fill her shoes.  Ever.  I'm not putting myself down, just stating one of those facts.  They just don't make 'em like her anymore.


John marked up the Schwan's catalog with stuff he'd like to get.  I wonder if it's worth the money.  I find myself not making too many meals for the family because unlike before gastroparesis when I used to love to cook, now I hate the whole process.  That's guilt inducing.


The Sleep Number Bed people sent me a True Silver Blanket to review over on Pet Blogs United.  The pure silver fibers naturally repel bacteria, dust and odors, making it a great blanket to use when pets share your bed with you.


Oskar trying out the True Silver Blanket!


Chris & I finally decided to pull out the yo-yo bed cover my mom made for us years ago.  Each circle was cut & sewn by her.  I'll post more about this in a day or two.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend.  To see the other Project 365 players, click over to Sara's blog.

I loved having the Schwans's man come to my house when we lived in IN!!! Something about the door to door delivery and straight to my freezer!!!

Those Keds look BRAND new!!! fun you can wear your grandmother's size and enjoy them!

My mom used to LOVE Schwanns - but I think my dad finally decided that they were too rich for his blood.

LOVE the yo yo bed cover! Our neighbor is working on one - I think they're so cool.
