    Looks like CA is a little cloudy today too. No beautiful sunrise , just looks foggy. Same here in WY, yesterday and today and it's only 16 degrees....so much for the weatherman's low prediction of 34 for last night. We even had a little bit of that snow whirling around yesterday, praying for winter to be over soon.

    Elisabrat - Can you do pureed watermelon? If not, I have lots of frozen grapes from last years harvest still in the freezer I will share with you. Dried watermelon is a great snack, mine turns out like fruit leather.

(we have to come up with good ways to quench our thirst without drinking more water hence the frozen grapes.. ) dialysis. oh fun. don't try it with strawberries. they take out your teeth when frozen. blueberries are good but a bit tart. great in your wine glasses ladies. no extra water keep it cool and then you could munch on them I suppose if you like when your done. Me, no wine, no glasses of fun things like WATER.. just.. grapes.

    I've chosen a piece from my pig collection. I'm hoping Judy or another of you on the mystery ride will give me the best idea for a b c order. I know she said small pieces will be cut. Will the pigs show in any of the positions?

    Thanks for the input. SheriR

    Sorry for your pain computer pain Judy. The delay gave me a chance to dig through the stash for my fabrics of choice and to find my focus fabric at the local thrift store yesterday. The red paisley is the thrift store purchase, three yards for about $1.80 a yard including the tax. I did discover that my stash is almost devoid of Christmas greens. Not sure yet about the order of the fabrics.

    Well here in se tx we are having lovely weather for spring break as well. Getting pretty cool at night but upper 60s to mid 70s daytime. Loving it! Got some petunias at the garden center to put out in my flower bed.

    Ohthank the Lord. I thought I was born and raised here and we go to the beach to um.. watch the sunset? lol its ok. that was a brat moment to the tenth degree. I was floored when we went to Akumal. down in the Yukatan Mexico that the sun rose out of the ocean. then my now X looked at me and said DID YOU LOOK AT A MAP BEFORE we came here? sulk off.. no. just knew it was below CA not how far inland. geography I can do basic not reality. I just thought waitta minute, I know the sun rises in the east first... soooo . I still dont get sunrises thought. we are hour or more behind the rest because the mountian is like 8000 feet inbetween me and the sun. lotta rising to beat that.

    I love sunrise sunset its those times that you think when people paint something that the colors are all fake, that cant be right.. oh yes yes it can. Its a joy to watch. your mind like when quilting we paint with fabric is painting with ..pure natural color. how much better than can you get. no fog here Jaba. We just avoid it as much as possible. we do get lol Mountain Mist when the clouds are hanging so low? lower they get fog. I know. I live up "here" with the misters. lol.

    I am making boring old pork chops tonight. gets better. shake and bake. Steve hates pork anyways. he will kill it with mustard so what the heck. shake bake dinner. ok and a salad. gotta love those salads.

    Watermellon cubes. yes I could have those. I can have 2 cups of fluid a day. all at once or broken up over say 12 hours my pic. then I can have one apple OR fruit/veggie water equivalent. or I am in teacher trouble at clinic and its hard on me so I try to be good. sometimes. most of the time. not all of it. Hence why I dont do oodles of heat. Today is gorgeous 64! and will be for the next three days then back to the 50's which is fine too. more fish in the freezer. lucky me! found a new person for the fish. I am jazzed. giving 10 away today. leaves me only... like 25. or more. no room for FOOD. Wish I could A) live here but B) live in the bay area where food is not hard to gift at all all the soup kitchens will take it gladly. no soup kitchens here. and the churches wont take it yet they limit groceries to one bag a month .. so many want it. what do I do sit outside the parking lot and say FREE FISH??? I guess he will just have to make a run to Sacramento and drop off what is in there soon so he can run back out and be the great white fisherman. To those who dont get it, he is putting back 5-10 fish a time while he is there just keeping the ones that dont make it. ahhhhhh. thank you for limits world. five a day is all you can keep. phew.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Has this train left the station yet or can I still join? I normally do not do well with Mystery quilts (the controlling perfectionist side of me would like to see the finished product before I start!) but this sounds like fun and I love all of your fabric choices on here. Plus with nothing more than 3/4 yard, I can definitely raid my stash Now on to selecting some fabrics...decisions, decisions.
