Hello Again

Hello again. Sorry ’bout that. I had a this ‘n’ that post almost written before I left for a little visit with my BF, but I ran out of time. We had a great time together–it was more of a VAcation than a STAYcation this time. We usually hole up in her studio and quilt all day-every day when I visit, but this time we were in the car every day going here and there. It was a lot of fun, and I have loads of pictures to share with you, but I’ll get to that in the next few days.

So here’s what happened BEFORE I left. I had a very fun blogger meet-up with old blog buddy Juice (well, SHE’s not old. She’s one of my oldest blog friends. Oh dear, that didn’t come out right either. I’m sure you all know what I mean…) Anyway, we got together for a crafting day! Me with my quilting, and her with her cross-stitch.

Chloe is her wonderful little dog–quite the personality, and if I remember right, she was going to run for president, but “no thumbses.” Noah volunteered to be her running mate.

Juice lives in an apartment complex, but its like a walk in the country–lots of duckies and squirrels there.

Chloe is quite the squirrel hunter.

(Can you see the stupid brave squirrel up there giving her the eye?)

And Juice knows me well. The day ended perfectly with a visit to Pinkberry!!

(LOL, we ate our froyo before we remembered to take a pic.)

I don’t make this blueberry topping too often. But I sure enjoy it when I do! This time I followed Lori’s directions, and at the end added a little of my sugar free syrup. It made a perfect topping for my protein pancakes.

While we’re on the topic (we were discussing “blue,” right?,) here’s a picture of my favorite blue flower. I think they’re morning glories, but the nurseries label them “blue dawn flower.” I think that is a sales gimmick. Whatever, I love them.

I know I haven’t been posting as often lately. Besides this latest trip, it is mostly because I am working so much on my art quilts. I have had lots of inspiration and ideas lately. I think its important to work when the inspiration is there. Sooner or later it will wane. And then you will probably see more posts from me!

The end.

  1. I want to put my nose right up to his nose and just stare at him. If you ever get tired of him, let me know. :)

    HI JUICE!! I’m so jealous of all your bloggy meetups!!

    Glad you’re back and posting again. :)

  2. Your weight loss is really showing – you look so good!!! Wow!

    Welcome back – I’m so glad you had a great time with both your BF and Juice (and am not a bit jealous of your crafting day…not at all)(hrmph). Also, Pinkberry. Nice!

    That close up of Noah made me smile big. I agree with Lori – that is the picture of contentment right there. Mom’s home, and all is right in Noahland. :)

  3. Wow, couldn’t wait to get to the bottom of the comments so I could leave mine, but I’m way behind. You look GREAT, but seems everyone else thinks so to! Sounds like a relaxing, fun trip. Glad you were able to get away.
