Connie and I joined other retirees at the movie theatre for a complimentary showing of “The Book Thief”. I think we were the youngest ones there but it sure was fun on a cold Wednesday morning in North Iowa.
Staff did not sew yesterday due to weather so we’ll try it again. In the meantime I have a couple of strong boys coming to move furniture and I will be shopping for carpet this weekend.
Because I know you’ll want to hear this sad news, Lori’s mom, Alice, passed away last Friday. She had taken a turn for the worse and Lori said her passing was a blessing.
I read my book this afternoon and had a nap.
Country Threads’ Retiree
Since the shop closed I have read three books and “Rainwater” by Sandra Brown was the best – not too sappy – I don’t enjoy romance novels. There was a disturbing “animal” issue within the story line but I got through it. Today as the wind kicked up and visibility decreased, I sat in my easy chair and started a new book. What a wonderful feeling!
Here is the quilt shop, emptied and hollow looking. Soon I will start moving in but the weather is not cooperating. Too cold and windy to move furniture and I need an extra pair of hands as well. When the weather clears, I will shop for carpet and then the transformation will begin.
Thursday night is the final episode for the fall season of “How To Get Away With Murder”. Are you watching? I have not figured it out yet so I can’t miss the last show.
Stay warm wherever you live!

It’s a cold day on the farm today and snowing lightly. Looks so pretty I hung the Christmas lights on the porch.
