Thomas progress


Hey there Ladies,
I wanted to show the progress on Thomas. I am working on his tail feathers right now. I haven't had much time to stitch so there is not a lot of progress. Once this is done I will turn my attention to CaHRH and finish the first block. I have made some progress on it but I forgot to take a picture.
So far the laundry is done, lunch is cooking and the trash is taking out...ok...now what to do next.
I have an apartment that needs to be cleaned but with the flooring being installed they had to shut the water off so none of that today! Yea!
I do have a little more painting to do at that apartment tomorrow so we will see.

Have you ever been to a program that was very disorganized??? Well last night I went to one that well...was terrible. It started 40 minutes late and spent the first 30 minutes thanking every person by name. Now this was a church thing with a lot of volunteers and I truly believe that if you are working there for the right reasons then there would be no reward in being recognized for everything you do! Now to give a general thank you should have been enough to cover it. I do many things at the church...and I truly believe that there should be no need to constantly thank me...as if it is the praise that keeps me going. It is nice to be told thank you but really...for the first 30 minutes>>>>oh my. It was to be over at 6pm (it was to start at 4:30) and it ended at 8*pm...it was so hot...I could feel my asthma starting to flare. I wanted to be there because my dd was going to be part of the actual ceremony but really....I guess as a teacher I do not find this acceptable. There has to be a better way....lol
OK...so much for my complaining!
I still have my snowmen out but I am thinking about putting them away. I have much to do before the graduation party! I am trying to talk my dh into painting my kitchen cabinets...oh...I would love to paint them. He sees the oak and says...no way...but I am still trying...it would be cheaper than new ones right? lol Don't get me wrong my cabinets are very nice it is just that I don't care for them...oh well..we will see what happens with that.
Well, I have lists to make and tasks to tackle...so until next time, be blessed.

I have to agree with your thoughts on 'thanking' volunteers....they are just that! One does these kinds of things from their heart and yes, a general thank you is sufficient.

funny how folks just go gaga over other simply doing what is right. We are a strange people who must be praised insesently. That is this generation they are calling it something like that sad show of things.

I've been contemplating putting my snowmen away too. We've had some rain and warmer temps.

Good progress on the turkey. I know what you mean about the Thank you's. I am a volunteer at school, and beleive me, no one, meaning the parent, ever thanks us, only put us down when something does not go thier way! I wouldn't know a thank you if I fell over it! LOL! hugs, michelle

Thomas is coming along quite nicely, Dianntha. I know exactly what you mean about disorganized gatherings. Last summer I found myself analyzing the ice cream lines knowing there had to be a better way to serve 200+ people. I think teachers are like that because we have to be organized and somehow we thing everyone else is also. Not so. Oh well....

Meggie said...

Yes, Dianntha, we here in Pgh are getting snow also. Lots of white stuff flying out there!
