Thought I would take a moment to show you all the mundane and other random stuff from my life. First off, I received a lovely box full of thread a few days ago. I don’t know about you, but there’s nothing that makes a woman feel so good as receiving new thread!
Above is a sneak peek at the colors in my new quilt that I made with Barbara Kiehn. I will load this quilt this week and I figure it may take a hundred + hours to complete.
While I was in my studio, here’s a picture for my friend, Marge, who wants to take the photoshop Digital Imaging class that I took so long ago at a local college. This assignment was to create a magazine ad called “Diesel:”
The grade on the back says I received an “A” from my instructor. Everything in the ad was created in photoshop (bottle, shadow, metal surfaces, etc.) except the blurry diesel truck images blurred in the background. Marge, take this class, you won’t be sorry!
We saw Jack TWICE this week, his new favorite play toy is a plastic straw:
He is lunging for me wanting to be held more and more. Of course, this melts my heart EVERY time!
Warning for all my vegetarian friends, don’t scroll down!
Last but not least is the smoker I purchases for Joe. He has been experimenting- with various levels of success. The first one wasn’t smoked enough and needed some sauce, the second had too much. After watching Bobby Flay of the Food Network, he now knows what step he was leaving out. Here is is third attempt waiting to be placed inside the smoker:
Since I just started the South Beach Diet, I won’t be eating the above ribs, but for me Joe is smoking a tenderloin. Speaking of diet, I really need to take off 20 lbs, how did those get there?? I’ll keep you posted from time to time about my goal, anyone want to diet with me??
Thanks again for all the congrats to Molly and I for the terrific win at the state fair. I’ve now talked Molly into a quick retreat up to her beautiful vacation home at Lake Tahoe in a month. Molly is a lot of fun, and the last time we did this, I converted her to 1) buying an ipod; and , 2) listening to country music!!
Enjoy YOUR day!!! Hugs, Carla
