This week went by so fast. On Tuesday DH and I had to go to Ann Arbor, MI (over a 4-hour drive). We went there and back in the same day. Way too much car time for me. I am not the world’s best traveler although I did enjoy getting a few hours of time to read a novel (Double Dealer by Barbara Taylor McCafferty and Beverly Taylor Herald--twins who write light murder mysteries about twins who solve the mysteries).
Next Wednesday, I have to do almost the same drive all over again for a meeting for work. Four of us are leaving at 4:30 a.m. (that’s no typo) to get to the meeting by 9 a.m. We will sit in a dull meeting until about 3pm and then have to drive back home…I just hate going to these meetings….I have to stop thinking about it or I will ruin my entire weekend.
I just got home from a bit of a shopping spree—Mother’s Day gifts, groceries, and, while looking for clothes for my Mother, I just happened to come across two sweaters and some cropped pants that had my name all over them. As a woman, I am a bit of an anomaly in that I detest shopping. My husband does almost all of the grocery shopping—he shops for it and I cook it—tonight we went together. I am always shocked by the prices. I needed vanilla and cringed when I picked up a bottle and it was $16.95. It was a large bottle, but I seem to remember it being more like $7.99 the last time I shopped for it. And Mr. Greenspan keeps saying there is no inflation—I think he needs a new bifocal prescription.
I am hoping to get some outside work done tomorrow if it does not rain. I am way behind this year due to the cold, rain, and snow. At the moment, the only blooms in my yard are a few scrawny daffodils and hyacinths.
On the quilting scene, I have not done a darn thing this week.
I have been sleeping under my completed log cabin for the past two weeks. It is wonderfully warm and cozy. This weekend I also need to clean up all of the quilting debris scattered around my computer/sewing room. So much to do and so little time to do it all!
Pilgrim Block - I finally got one of the pilgrim blocks ready to sew. This morning I picked out some fabrics and started and finished 5 sections .... I am really liking he...
