Simple Things

I have been put on a lot of night and evening shifts as of late.  I am not a fan.  I don't sleep well during the day, and driving home around 2-4am is dangerous, let me tell you there are a lot of impaired drivers out there. 

I know I complain about this house, the work it needs, it is old, dusty, funky but I absolutely love it and all of its quirks.  My favorite thing?  When I have to sleep during the day and it is raining, listening to the rain hit the metal standing seam roof.  The roof is as old as the house (over 150 years). I still only slept for about 4 hours.  Ugh!

I think DH misses me in the evening since I have been working, he came home and had lunch on his way back to work after stopping to pick up parts, such a lovely surprise.

I did a wee bit of sewing.  I made a connector block for the BOM that I am doing with the batik group at MQP.
I have been trying to stay in the lime green, orange, yellow families with my funky background.  Boy can you tell the difference though.  May have to rethink this one or just go with it.  I have many more months of BOM to change it up or add to it. 


  1. Interesting color choices! I had to click on the photo so I could really see your funky batiks!

  2. Sometimes the colors are hard to chose. I have to keep trying things. I think your blocks look great! I used to work in the bakery department of out local grocery store. I worked from 1 am until 10 am. I had a horrible time trying to sleep during the day. I only last about 6 months and had to quit.

  3. Sorry about your schedule - that stinks!!! I've lifted up a prayer for your safety while driving home at night :) I love mixed up colors, but I have to admit I would choose one of those greens or the other - they don't seem to be playing well together in the picture. It may look different in real life though :)

  4. I couldn't work the night shift, I would fall asleep by 12.

  5. I understand about your schedule...I wouldn't want to work nights either. I love your blocks! :0)

  6. There is absolutely no way I could work that late any more - I'm in my pajamas by 9:00 most nights! blessings, marlene
