Hello and welcome  back to my little blog!  I know, I know, I haven’t posted much in the past year or so, but life gets ahead of you and before you know it, you’re asking where did the time go?  In my case, no clue except it has been a pretty good ride so far.

Where to start?  Hmm, I guess I will go from the present and work my way backwards.  The newest thing in my life is a brand new job!  Yes, I resigned from MedQuist back in February as I felt I was being bullied into quitting.  And, it’s the best thing I ever did!  There are a lot of disgruntled employees who are leaving and now looking for better positions.  I am now with Chronicle Transcripts which seems to be a pretty good company so far.  Hey, it’s only my 4th day there!    lol!  Will let you know more as I continue with them.  By the way, if you’re wondering what type of work I’m doing, I’m a MLS (medical language specialist).  I’m one of the millions out there that transcribe and edit medical reports for patient’s charts.  I work from home, downloading jobs from a platform, sit  listend and type whatever the doctor says and then it gets sent back to them for their records.  I’ve been doing this for 8 years now and really love my work!

On Mother’s Day we drove up to my sister’s house in Camino.  By we, that’s Doug, Kathy, An, Sam and myself!  Can you believe it, Sam is almost 2 and a half years old!  WOW!!  If you go to my videos, there is one with Sam and the Mulch Pile.  My sister had some trees made into mulch recently and  of course, Sam found it!  It’s really cute!  There’s also another video from Father’s Day when Sam was just a few months old.  That was 2 years ago.  Turn your speakers on loud!  Mom was there in her wheelchair (advanced Alzheimer’s) and did well with Dad there taking care of her.  This was a whole new adventure for Sam as he had never been in the mountains before.  He loved it and we all had a great visit.  My daughter Kathy gave me a beautiful azalea plant and Doug bought me some Janet Evanovich books.  I gave my mother a nice silk plant with some bright flowers for her room.  This way, no watering just a little dusting now and then.  I also got some nice cards.  Not sure yet what to do for Father’s Day. 

We had planned on going to Placerville for Easter but the weather was so bad and we were ill, so we stayed home and had a nice dinner.  As for the other holidays, Christmas, Valentine’s Day, etc.  I will stop as I really don’t remember much and it has been so long ago.  I think we will start moving forward now and see what’s new!

About cozyquilts

Hello and welcome to my website. My name is Donna. My hubby is retired and I am still working from home. I have twin daughters and am blessed with 4 grandchildren. We are owned by 4 cats that love to supervise and are very nosy. I have been quilting since 1996. In addition to making quilts for my family and friends, I also make charity quilts for Marjoree Mason Center and Valley Children's Hospital. Marjoree Mason Center is a local organization here that helps and supports battered and abused women and children get out of abusive relationships. Every Christmas I make several baby quilts for the women, along with a small stuffed animal. Valley Children's Hospital is a new venture for me that just started this year. Every month or so I drop off a couple of quilts along with a small toy, for the children. I use a lot of bright, fun fabrics to help cheer them up. I do special order quilts but please be advised in advance as I work full-time in addition to quilting, I only do a few during the year. Also, it may take up to 6 months to a year to completely finish a quilt as my sewing time is limited. I only do applique or patchwork and will incorporate machine embroidery into my patterns, when requested. Thank you for visiting and I hope to see you and friends again soon.
