The Eternal Optimist?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

I was out shopping today and saw swim noodles on sale. I bought 3 because I am an optimist and figure I will be shipping more quilts to venues!

Here is a sneak peek at the secret piece I am working on. I am doing a lot of little French knots.

I have spent the week-end getting odds and ends done in preparation for our trip to New York on Tuesday. Mr C installed the last bit of security for the exterior of the house — a motion detector light by the back door. He spent a lot of time on it and was complaining that it didn’t work. I said that maybe it only works when it is dark — what do I know? Of course, that was it. He went out tonight and the light came on!!

We got the new grill all set up on Friday.

Yesterday, I marinated a roasting chicken and last night, we put the rotisserie to the test.

And it was delicious.

I spent an hour tonight setting up my iPad with Blogsy and tried to do my blog, but I could not get the images to import. Guess I will have to keep working on it. So there may not be any blogging from our trip because I want to leave my laptop at home.
