Cozie Blog

Life is nice when you're Cozie

Oh Joy!

I do believe I’ve quite neglected this blog.  I haven’t had much to inform anybody of though.  Sure, we keep busy, but my momsie blogs about everything before I even have time for reminiscence.  In fact, I would completely abandon this blog if it weren’t for my Uncle Charley telling me he won’t make me a wooden ring until I blog and redo my template. 

I would like to take this moment to declare that WordPress does not have very user-friendly template editors.  It makes me dizzy looking through all the pages.  And I used to think I was an expert.

But I have grand news — we are going to a barn dance in IL!  I’m so excited because we weren’t going to have a local barn dance this year and my family was lamenting the loss.  I’ll be donating a quilt to auction off, which I started yesterday.  I’m pretty sure I made up the pattern….and it was completely on accident, too.  I pulled out a bunch of corresponding scrap material and threw it into my lap, when lo and behold, this pattern was practically staring at me:

In other news, this is how I spent last Friday at work:

Touring Home Depot with 56 Kindergarten kids.  Do you realize how easy it is to impress 5 and 6 year olds?

So that was fun.  And this also wraps up my blog post.  I’ll most definitely blog after the barn dance, but more than likely, not before.

  1. OH! I like it! Nice, Co. And that picture with you and all those kids is soooo cute. That’s you in 15 years!

  2. So, um, are you gonna give me that quilt as a Christmas present?

  3. Very nice… You and that gaggle of kiddos look pretty cute! You’re kinda like mother goose with an orange apron. 🙂

    I really like your quilt pattern! Way to be creative! I just think it should be various shades of black and pink. 😛

    Oh, and so much for that “I forgot my password” excuse now, huh??

    Go Wildcats!! Oops, I mean Vols!!

    Okay, okay, I’m off to the shop. There’s something I need to do in there – oh yeah, play with the chainsaw!

  4. I know what you mean about WP templates…you have to download the template, unzip it and upload it via FTP. I was a little disappointed about the geekiness of that method, but everything turned out okay. 🙂


  5. I have taken the younger three to the Lowe’s build-it thingies on Saturday. I think HD has them too, but the day I had the time it was Lowe’s that did it. What a fun program.

    We would love a tour from you! 🙂

  6. Awww… a gaggle of kindergarteners! They look so cute in their aprons!

    Can’t wait to see how your quilt turns out too. I’m… uhhh… too uptight to throw caution to the wind and just start stitching pieces together. Oh and it doesn’t help that I’m not that great at coordinating fabrics… that really takes talent!

  7. Oh Charley, do say that you are working on my hippie thumb ring!

    And I don’t know what was up with my password the other day…mine and mom’s both stopped working.

  8. I might have blown some dust off my lathe… How’s that template coming?? 😛

  9. Chaaaaaaaaaaawwwwwwwwwwleeeeeeeeeeeeey is totally milking this ring thing. I will try to pull him away from his cheesy PS3 tiger woods golf game and nudge him ‘shop-ward’… i got your back. 😉

    love mess

  10. So, I just read your ’bout me page from yo momma’s link. And it gives reference to chicken milking. I’ve never had chicken milk, but would love to try some! I assume chocolate syrup goes well in chicken milk?

  11. Hi Miss Coie,
    I jumped over here from reading your Momsie’s forever fun blog. What a lovely quilt you are making! Your Mom also said recently that you all may head our way on your way north. That would be a blast, if you do! Mary Rose would love to finally meet you, and it would be good to see you both again.

    Mrs. B.
