Mar 15, 2018


So I had a good boohoo, read the paper, put my shoes and socks on, and we went for a long walk in the sunshine. Then I took a hot scrubby shower, put my leggings and big t-shirt on, and we went to the Martins salad bar for a healthy dinner.

Now I'm in the happy chair with my stitching and our brackets (the score is 7-5 so far...advantage Spinster). Both JB and I filled out brackets, and as games are played and results come in, I highlight winning teams and keep track of who picked them. I haven't a clue, mind you, but so far am holding my own against the semi-pro basketball fan over there on the sectional.

I don't know who is actually playing...I just wait until it's over to see which one of us was correct in our selection.  Every now and then Jersey Boy will holler sometng that makes me look up, but methinks I'm better off paying attention to needle and thread than I am to ball and basket.
(And yes, in case you're wondering, I pick teams based on uniform colors and whether or not they have a mascot that I can understand.)

Speaking of my other he is enjoying a little pie.  Post salad.

And finally, the real reason that my day turned around.  Orange pop.  Orange pop in my sippy cup.
love orange pop, especially when it's diet Orange Crush and was a special surprise in last week's grocery shop.

So we seemed to have turned it around a bit here in Hoosierville, Dearies. I'm going to grab some headphones and zone out with a little Flosstube and stitching for the duration. I hope your very own Thursday has been swell...come tell me all about it!


  1. Glad the day has turned around! Enjoy your Orange Crush and the stitching! I like your 'spinning' organizer next to your sippy cup.

  2. We’re watching our local university team—the Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks—play Texas Tech. Of course, we’re pulling for the ‘Jacks, but either way, a Texas team wins! I’m glad to see you stitching and swigging Orange Crush and pulling yourself up by your legging straps. BTW, I followed your fashion lead and bought some wild (for me) leggings from Amazon and love, love, love ‘em. So now you are a fashion maven to your fans. There’s just no end to your talents, girl!

  3. WOW! Great! I LOVE orange pop! yum. DH is watching too and rooting for UK (University of Kentucky). I gave up doing brackets. I don't ever even come close. Rooting for you Coni in whatever you do! Love, hugs & prayers, Cathryn ♥♥♥

  4. All the ducks lined up.... great Orange Crush evening ...
    and a good game along with stitching... you have it, Coni!

  5. I love diet orange crush. It’s a real treat and when I find it on sale I stock up.

  6. I too love orange pop :) And I love your method on picking teams. Haha!
