Sometimes life hands you lemons and you just need to make lemonade with it.  Or you get a pile of scraps and then you make a quilt.  You get off your schedule and you just have to get back on.  As you can see, I’ve been off schedule since I didn’t blog for the last two weeks.  We went on vacation to visit the grandkids the first week so I have a legitimate reason for not blogging.  That and I haven’t taken the time to figure out the Word Press app on my iPad yet.  It was more important to spend my limited time with the kids.  Last week, I have no excuse.  I just haven’t gotten back on schedule.  I’m still a bit off my routine but am working on getting things back in order so here goes.
