If you're a REAL quilter, you have at least one UFO (unfinished object) and one WIP (work in progress) stashed in the closet or stacked on a shelf. Maybe you just need quilting suggestions, or maybe a fresh eye from a new online friend can help with block arrangements. How about a UFO swap? Any UFO conversation is welcome.

Mary, you know you can get doggie diapers that use sanitary or contience pads. They make disposable ones too. I can tell you what measurements I need and I can make you charge

Comment by Mary Moore yesterday

Did I tell you we have a new foster dog?  She is 10 years old, 150 lbs, and has heartworm.

 Her only owner died about 3 weeks ago of hypothermia.. they were living in a tent trailer.

Star went for help, but the neighbors were too late.

She is leaking on Paul's new wood floors.  But we adore her.

Ma is half the size of Star, and it is good she can't see just how big Star is.  Ma still has an open wound from her bear encounter in Dec.

She also leaks.

  And the cat has a urinary infection so she leaks.

I have the smelliest house.

We took both dogs to the clinic for our vaccinations.  Star escaped from the car and went exploring.  Paul brought her back and she refused to get into his car.  The Clinic folk brought our paperwork outside, and then took us inside one at a time, so one could watch the dogs. I love small rural clinics.  Eventually I talked her into my car, but then had to go home instead of back to work.  Took a nap. Now mopping floors as no one was watching the dogs inside. 

Elizabeth, don't you want a dog to keep you busy??? 

Comment by Zoetc49 yesterday

Elizabeth, Yes, I understand.. that was why my mom did not want to get one. Maybe  your kids could help pay for it, or add to paying for it. In Canada, can you get it for a need? I don't know the system there. If I lived on the border, I would get it for you and meet you somewhere, I miss BC Victoria .. loved it up that way.. I think you live further away.

I don't think a bathtub lift is not in my future, Zoe.  I saw 2 on Amazon in Canada - one for over $700 and one for over $900.  I guess I will continue showering.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips yesterday

wow, Zoe!  I have never heard of a bathroom lift.  My Mom used to love using the jacuzzi at her LTC home.  They used a jerry chair to sling her into it.  I am sure it must be costly to get a bathtub lift.  My curiosity is aroused.  I may look on Amazon.

Comment by Zoetc49 yesterday

Elizabeth, Oh, no.. That is hard on the bath. My mom has a hard time too but she said she lets the water out, then rolls on her stomach, then pulls her self up using the bars. I suggested what is called " bathtub lift", it fits into the tub, you sit on it, and then it lowers you down and when you want to get out, it will lift you.

They are kind of costly, but you might ask your children about it what they think. There are many different ones.

Ginny, I received your card today.  Thank you so much.  I tried listening to music on UTube today but I think I need something with more lively.  I will look for something tomorrow.  My son has to come over tomorrow because the lawyer is doing a Zoom call and documents have to go back and forth to witness my signature and then his signature  - all in a 2 hour period.  My frozen food from "heart to home" arrived today so I will make something for me to eat even though I don't feel like eating.

Elizabeth, music is a wonderful stress reliever, listening, singing along, and dancing along. It doesn't have to be overly exercise-ish. Just the rhythmic movement can be soothing. Imagine if we could all show up on your doorstep and give you a hug. Got that picture in your mind? Good, cuz if we could do it, we would!

Thank you, Gail.  You have no idea how nice it is to feel so many of my friends care.

Comment by Elizabeth Phillips on Wednesday

Zoe, I think that I have already told people the story of when my bathroom was being renovated and the guys wanted me to indicate where I wanted the grab bars installed.  I got in the tub and couldn't get out.  2 strong men had to pull me up and out.  I don't think that I'll get into a bath again!  I have put a tension rod up so that I can dry clothes there.  I may change to a drying rack.  

So, long story told, I can't have a relaxing bath.  But I did try some relaxing music from UTube this morning and got to sit down for 15 minutes before bobbing up again.  And I have cut some squares and am in the midst of marking them.
