QuiltApril 26, 2006
Okay, I've GOT to show you this. This is what our pocket vegans Kira and Rachel made us for our wedding present. I haven't been showing presents, because it's kinda overwhelming, and I don't know where to start. But you gotta see this:
Isn't that awesome? Claudia, put your arm down. You can't have it. Red and orange and yellow, baby, with polka dots and flames. I can't imagine a more perfect quilt.
Also, Harriet likes it:
It's hard to take a picture of a red/orange/yellow quilt, and it's even harder taking a picture of a black dog, but this one just worked on my camera phone. Too bad we only have a dog-head. I think the dog-body's around here somewhere....
The coffee thing works! I think I have to work on the ratio of milk to water, and it might be better to heat the milk separately and shake (I've tried both today), but it's GOOD. God bless coffee.
I'm having a pajama day tomorrow, folks. Today I have organized bills (note, organized -- must work on paying them soon), cleaned the entire dang house, from top to bottom, gardened, weeded, mowed (erg, with our dull push mower. That's for the birds, I can tell ya), and taken a shower. Oh, and washed every piece of fabric that we own. I worked hard ALL day so that tomorrow I can do NOTHING. Really, nothing. I'm going to watch TV, and I already bought pizza, cheese and bread, salad, good cookies, milk, orangina, and chocolate covered pretzels. (Oh, lord, look at the planning.) I have Elizabeth I, Gilmore Girls, and Everwood saved on my buddy TiVo and I have some movies, too. I'm not answering the phone, looking at email, or doing ANYTHING that I don't want to do, that doesn't give me pleasure. So, no mowing. That's for sure.
(Also, to those of you loves that gave us prezzies, I just ordered the thank you cards. We're late, but they'll be coming. Every day, we have fun with Our Things. We don't need anything else, I can tell you that. Yay!)
Oh, here are the pocket vegans at the wedding:
And I love this one, Rachael and Rachel (there were four at the wedding):
All right! Off the internet and onto the couch!
