Last week started off fun with the annual family pool party. The weather was great until about 4pm when a giant cloudburst dumped rain galore upon us and we all made a hurried beeline for the garage. (At first it was the house, but I skedaddled everyone in the garage instead with their dripping swimming suits.) For some reason I had a funny feeling this might happen, so had hubby sweep out the garage and set up a table with folding lawn chairs in there the day before ……just in case and we grilled in the rain. Oh well!
Then, on Monday, I finally went to the dentist with a tooth that has been bothering me, and then a visit to the root canal specialist for that lovely procedure on Tuesday. Not fun! Wednesday it was annual blood work for my annual physical which will be this week. Yikes! Nothing like being poked and prodded all week!!!
I did receive my mini quilt from my partner though for the QT swap. Thankfully, considering the condition of the packaging, everything was intact.
The theme was "anything goes" and she nailed me! As you know, I love bright colors and paper piecing…….(and then she got a tiny doggie in the middle.) Cute! Thanks, Pam (uberstitch).
I was totally uninspired for the swap (and I shouldn't have signed up…I know that now), but in Pam's profile she mentioned that she liked cross quilts, so I made that for her. She also likes aqua and red with white and black and white, so this is the result:
And, of course, I sent out some envelopes this week:
And I read a few books and three were from the library (if you can believe?) I really must get to my own stuff…..and not buy anymore!! I have stacks now to catch up on. This is the list for this week:
THE AWAKENING OF MISS PRIM debut by Natalia S. Fenollera
LOOKING FOR ME by Beth Hoffman
NEVER COMING BACK by Tim Weaver
DON'T TALK TO A STRANGER by Amanda Kyle Williams
"Looking for Me" was the best of the bunch I thought, although the last one (a mystery) was really good too (and I didn't figure it out half way through as usual, amazingly enough….which is probably why I liked it so much). Besides, it's rated really high on Goodreads.com.
So, that's my week in a nutshell. Who knows what this week will bring? Life is always a surprise, it seems sometimes!! I guess that's good!
You all have a super week, and stay away from the root canal guys. NO fun!
