                                            Design Wall for Week 30 - 07-28-14


                                            Oh lordy!  I'm entirely too close to the top 10 on Stashbuster's Queen of the UFOs list!!!!  (I'm number 20 - and that was as of the 18th and I KNOW that I've moved up (down?) in the world - espec since Ellen just posted the NEW Queen of the UFO list - just not how FAR I've moved on up!

                                            That being said...............

                                            EVERYTHING comes to a screeching halt!!!!!  And what are the quickest (from where they are currently) and fastest items I have?????  Worst part is that I CANNOT find my Thanksgiving table runner on there!!!  (Needs 2 table runners anyway!  and other isn't even started being quilted!!!) So that means THAT comes to a screeching halt (at least until I have binding DONE DONE DONE on the next one!)

                                            Mondo Bag is one - only needs lining and attaching that...  oh yeah, the quilting - hmmm - no!  not yet! and the strap put on....  that's on the board for the NEXT time!!!!  Same for Nines and Dashes!!!  NY table topper - I'm still not sure how I want to do that one - so it's on hold!

                                            Yellow Brick Road it is!!!  Straight grid pattern on the interior - and I truly would like a twisted ribbon in the border with a bow in each of the corners!  Of course, life couldn't be easy - I have to ADD the borders!  (I think 2 - inner one off white and 1.5 " strip and outer one I think I have the green already cut!  not sure!  IF NOT - then 3.5 inch strip - preferably pastel green!  Although a 2.5 inch strip would do!


                                            And all to be done - miraculously by Thurs eve?  OK - after I pick myself up off the floor - I had best get busy!

                                                                                What if the ATM didn't work.......


                                                                                If there was NO electricity for an extended period of time, as did happen twice not that long ago - NO electric to pump gas, definitely NO ATM working and those shops that were open wanted cash only - how would I handle it?..........

                                                                                Obviously as regards any cash - it would have to be what I have on hand.  Which wouldn't be a lot, for sure!  Especially since I'm known for traveling miles with only 25 c to my name!  :o/


                                                                                1. So - with regard to bills - those I need to get paid off ASAP!!!  (which will make the folks I owe very happy!)
                                                                                2. As for my car - I need to keep my car up to date re maintenance and to think ahead!  It would probably also not hurt if I got a Chilton's manual for my car and learned some very basic maintenance myself.  Heck - it might even save me money!
                                                                                3. Re gasoline - well, first of all I need to consolidate trips, plan my driving around, limit that to one day a week.  I also need to remember to fill up at the end of the day instead of wait for the next morning (when I'm running late anyway!)
                                                                                4. Re food - I need to have my 24-72 hour kit updated, refill my 90 day short term supply and rebuild my long term supply again.  I have some things but definitely am lacking!
                                                                                5. Re other out of pocket expenses - hmmm - maybe keep a week's "allowance" on me - which is a max of $20 and almost always is the 25 cents instead!  
                                                                                6. Don't use credit cards
                                                                                7. Don't use Debit cards
                                                                                8. Switch over to cash only.  Bills can go by check (and the post office).  All else can be paid with the green stuff!
                                                                                9. Try to raise/can/put away everything that I am able to, 
                                                                                10. Think homestead - because with all the veggies and fruit stuff I have growing - that's essentially what I have anyway!
                                                                                I don't like being dependent on others, nor do I like being dependent on working systems which can - and frequently do go down!  That being said - I did enjoy my caramel mocha the other day entirely too much!
