Louisana Accomplishments

I truly thought I’d get some sewing done while at mom’s but I never touched the sewing machine.  I brought 4 quilts that needed the binding finished and had planned to do those but . . did I say that I never touched the sewing machine? Nothing quilt related to show.  Mom has the Go Cutter and I thought I’d play around with that but didn’t do that either.  What did I do for 10 days?  I read, I knitted, I ate, I visited with family and friends . . it was a great vacation.  I did accomplish a couple of little things.  I helped Dad with his new camera; loaded Picasa on his desktop and laptop and showed him how to use it; helped Mom learn to use her Kindle and I knitted a bit.  Oh, I helped wash dishes once!

I knitted the second pink sock.


I knitted one sock out of my newest yarn.


Back to reality now . . cooking, cleaning, laundry and . . quilting! 🙂

    It’s nice that you just RELAXED and enjoyed your trip so much. As for the “reality” of housework, I have learned that it’s always there when I’m ready to do it and……if I choose to do something else instead, I DO it.

      Agree with Vicky. Vacations are for relaxation and rejuvenation and it sounds like you accomplished that.

    Nice socks! Your Mom & Dad sound like they are enjoying life! Glad you could spend time with them and you had a nice break from cooking, cleaning, laundry and yes, even quilting needs a break sometime!

    Too many people need a vacation to recover from vacation! Sounds like you had my kind of kick-back, relax and visit vacation. Knitting is very social and relaxing – often times in Austria I knit while visiting because I struggle with keeping up with the German language, so knitting is a good filler for me when the family really gets going and I lose the thread!

    Sounds like a great vacation to me. Just doing nothing is the best kind of vacation. I am sure you are rested up for another year of all of the activities you are engaged in, thank heavens for we, the lucky souls you give so much information to.

    I think you did the really important things—–really being with your mom and dad and doing things for them that they probably wouldn’t do if you hadn’t been there. What a great daughter you are to them. God bless all of you.
