Oh, what a Scrappy Day! -
That sounds much better than "Oh, what a Crumby Day!" -
But either way - after the "chore" of getting my taxes ready for my accountant - I was ready for some "playtime". The newest scraps were sorted though - "un-sewn" and put away. Then I pulled out the cookie sheets with my "crumb" blocks in various stages of completion -
The cookie sheets were sitting on top of a larger bin full of "crumbs" -
Which was on top of another bin full of baggies with miscellaneous scraps - ;))
For my next Free-Motion Quilting project - I chose Christmas Blocks - 6x6 - found the gold colored cotton thread that I used on the smaller version - and wound a couple of bobbins - so it's ready to go. I know it's not Christmas yet - but if I start now - I should be done by then - LOL - ;))
If you're here to check out my "quilty" stuff - you can stop reading now - the rest of this post is about the "ducks" that I want to take care of this week -
Along with my "playtime" I want/need to get my "ducks in a row".
It's not something we necessarily ever think about - but with the death of my husband three years ago - the sudden death of my neighbors in October - and the recent "Thomas Fire" and mudslides - I know that life can change in an instant.
If I suddenly get very ill, am comatose, or in an accident - someone will need to know my medical history (allergies/medications/dates/procedures/surgeries/hospitalizations/doctor contacts). If I suddenly die, someone will need access to my business/finances/health information. They will need to know my bank info - my debt payments (bills/utilities - who/what/when/how) - insurance info - etc. - in order to pay my bills and/or close my various accounts - including those online.
I had mentioned working on this before - so I checked back to my post - HERE - to see what I had shared so far. I think it makes sense to "reverse it" and start with what to do when I die - then add the I.C.E. (In Case of Emergency) information.
I might as well start with reviewing that file to see if anything needs to be updated. And I should probably make it a habit to review ALL of my "duck" information every couple of months or so - just to make sure that it is current. The changes will be in my head - but that won't help if I'm not here or able to communicate them.
After that I'll start on the rest - and keep you posted - ;))
In the meantime, if you're interested in some of what I did when my husband died - I have a series of posts on Quilter BOB that I called "Widowhood Wednesday". If you follow the link - read the post - then click on "Newer Post" at the bottom - you can read them all in order. There are eleven posts and I covered a lot of territory with a lot information. I have a disclaimer at the top that reads - in part - that it is NOT intended to be professional advice of ANY sort - but simply some of what I did - and it may or may not be what you want/need to do when the time comes - ;))
Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -
