I am blue, not the color but the feeling and I just don't know why.

I might be blue because two weeks have past and I now have to go back to the foot doctor tomorrow and possible  get another shot in the heel, and as you may recall I HATE NEEDLES and they hurt.

I might be blue because Winter is on its way and that means cold and I don't like cold weather. Cold outside and you have to have the heat on which just dries everything out including my skin.

I might be blue because the holidays are fast approaching and I have nothing done and to be truthful at this point I think I will cancel Christmas until a later time, I just can not get in the mood.

I might be blue because hubby has been working every Saturday, which is our normal out and about day. Maybe I am not blue, maybe I just have a case of cabin fever????

I might be blue because the bathrooms and my bedroom still needs to be finished, I am so tired of looking at the unfinished mess

I might be blue because I have entered every Accuquilt Go! fabric cutter giveaway I can find and I still haven't won one and I sure could use one with all the charity quilts I need to finish.

I might be blue because I haven't won anything lately....OH right you have to enter to win and I just don't have a interest in entering the contests.  I also haven't hosted a giveaway in awhile either. SEE something is really wrong when I don't do the contests because they really make me happy when I win.

I might be blue because Mel and the kids decorated the house for Halloween and we only had three groups of kids show up trick or treating.

I might be blue because the two boy puppies are ready to leave us, and in two weeks the 4 girls will be ready to go.  NO that is not why I am blue, might be because I am so tired of cleaning up after these little ones and they are just so spoiled, MY FAULT well almost my fault, hubby helped in the spoiling.

I don't know why I am Blue, but I am, I want to cry and I don't know why. I want to just go back to bed and cover my head until these feelings go away. Well that ain't gonna happen, the dogs get me up early and there are just to many things that need done during the day. Besides I hate wasting my time just sleeping my life away.

But enough of my being Blue, just so you don't feel blue too, here are some pictures to make you smile, enjoy....

You know you're a quilter when...Before a major holiday or event, you can be seen either up at midnight, or in the car on the way to the event, sewing the last few stitches in.

Hope this makes you smile!
The Seamstress

One day, when a seamstress was sewing while sitting close to a river, her thimble fell into the river. When she cried out, the Lord appeared and asked, "My dear child, why are you crying?"

The seamstress replied that her thimble had fallen into the water and that she needed it to help her husband in making a living for their family.

The Lord dipped His hand into the water and pulled up a golden thimble set with pearls. "Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied,"No."

The Lord again dipped into the river. He held out a silver thimble ringed with sapphires.

"Is this your thimble?" the Lord asked.

Again, the seamstress replied, "No."

The Lord reached down again and came up with a leather thimble. "Is this your thimble?"the Lord asked.

The seamstress replied, "Yes."

The Lord was pleased with the woman's honesty and gave her all three thimbles to keep, and the seamstress went home happy.

Some years later, the seamstress was walking with her husband along the riverbank, and her husband fell into the river and disappeared under the water.

When she cried out, the Lord again appeared and asked her, "Why are you crying?"

"Oh Lord, my husband has fallen into the river!"

The Lord went down into the water and came up with George Clooney.

"Is this your husband?"the Lord asked.

"Yes,"cried the seamstress .

The Lord was furious. "You lied! That is an untruth!"

The seamstress replied,"Oh, forgive me, my Lord It is a misunderstanding. You see, if I had said 'no' to George Clooney, you would have come up with Brad Pitt. Then if I said
'no' to him, you would have come up with my husband. Had I then said 'yes,' you would have given me all three. Lord, I'm not in the best of health and would not be able to
take care of all three husbands, so THAT'S why I said 'yes' to George Clooney.

And so the Lord let her keep him.
A little silly and a big hug from me!!!

Oh, gosh, I do know that feeling. The short dreary days don't help, either. My suggestion, a glass of wine, a bubble bath, and candles. To start anyway! And you should do something for just you. If it is sewing you want to do, then do it, but make something for you! Pamper yourself a little. (And I just love the pups. I would be blue to see them go. Especially that last little girl there!)

Blue is sometimes not a fun color :( Hopefully you will be back into the sunny feeling world. The puppies are absolutely adorable!!!!
