Lazy Sunday

I have been visiting my son in Denver for a few days and will return to Colorado Springs this afternoon for my last week of vacation.  My 16-year-old granddaughter has shared her bedroom with me for the past 2 nights and we whispered and giggled together until 1 AM.  So, I slept later than is my usual habit.  Still, I was up by 7 AM and it is now 9 AM and the house is as quiet as a mouse.  These city-dwellers have missed a lovely sunrise and wasted a lot of work-time!  At home, farm animals would have been fed, breakfast prepared and eaten, house picked up, and preparations for Sunday worship completed by 9AM! After two weeks here, I have yet to find a compelling reason to sell the farm and move to the city.  

My son's treat for me today is a Japanese restaurant and an introduction to sushi.  I'm not overly enthusiastic about this adventure.  Granted I love very rare beef, and any seafo
od or fresh fish, but I have always felt raw fish to be a bit too fresh.


But, as I am always telling my 78 year-old mother, learning something new builds new brain cells.  I have my fingers crossed that this new learning experience doesn't also exercise the gag reflex.

Hope to find a Hancock Fabrics on the way
 to Colorado Springs (providing my stomach is behaving).  I'm looking for this fabric that I found on their website.

I would like to use it for the basis of a wall hanging that I will be doing with Judy's Quilt Along.

For all of the reading clubs out there (or for gifting), here is a Give Away for you.  

Have a blessed Sunday.


  1. Hope you survived the sushi! You're braver than I am.
    You should be home just as your package arrives. I will mial it either Wed or Thursday. It depends on which day I chose for shopping!
    Love those grandkids while you are there!

  2. Carol have you not been to any quilt shops in Denver? There are several! And did you know Sherry's son Dustin lives in Denver? You have more family there than you knew! blessings, marlene

  3. I LOVE SUSHI!!!! I would eat it every day if I could.

  4. you're invited for cajun food if you can be here by 6:30pm. our border collie doesn't like guns, nail guns, thunder, or planes. But she takes heavy equipment, lawn mowers, etc all in stride. She sleeps under my sewing machine with her head on my foot--the one on the foot pedal! Your sister is saint, the cows can "hear" the electric fence, be prepared. Please send me your sister's name and phone number so the next time we need to be gone we can leave with complete confidence that all will be well!!

  5. My oldest son loves sushi! But he will never convince me to eat it.
