Snow Globes and rambling

The Sooners won! By the skin of their teeth! But at this stage of the game, a win is a win.

Now I am watching the LSU game against Auburn. I want Auburn to win this one! Yuk! LSU just went ahead!

Here is another one of my snow globes. It also plays that national hit called "Boomer Sooner". If you ever hear it you don't forget it, that's for sure!

Snow globes are just plain fun. I am pretty sure I am getting at least one more for Christmas, and maybe two. Aud (my mother) has been watching the door pretty closely for the last couple of weeks and that usually means she is expecting a package, and this is the time of the year that the Christmas catalogues come out.

Enjoyed my Minco outing today. Didn't get a lot done, but it was good to see everyone. The members of this small bee are very nice and friendly. The youngest member of the group is a sophomore in high school. She does nice work.
Now Auburn is ahead!

I don't go to bed until 2 or 3 in the morning, so getting up before noon is not easy. This is one of those wonderful things you get to do when you retire. However, when I have to get up early, it is not fun. My husband used to say he didn't start breathing until he had his first cup of coffee. Well, I can certainly empathize with that. I never did start breathing today until I stopped at Starbucks on the way home from Minco this afternoon. With 3 hours of sleep, I had to leave for home around 2:30 and when I got home I just collapsed. Now I am a zombie and it is only 11.

I am crushed! LSU won on the last play of the game. Yuk!

I wasn't able to do the Minco quilt show. I had to work at a local warehouse store. Did you get pictures????

Okay Missie, I guess you are going to have to walk me through the flickers thing so I can post some of my blocks like that. That is really great.
