Fabulous Friday

For Today:
Looking Out My Window:  Because the weather has been so cold the lake is completely frozen over.  Yesterday there were some kids out ice skating.  It really looked like fun.  I can't even remember the last time I ice skated.  (see picture below!)

My Weekend Plans Include: It's another trip to Denver.  Jessica and Martin are moving and we're the moving team, again.  The weather should be cooperative on Saturday.  Fortunately, they don't have a lot of furniture and STUFF.  It shouldn't be too hard.   We're also heading out to dinner to celebrate Elizabeth's 30th birthday.  When did that happen!

I’m Reading: I'm starting the year off in a classic theme.  I'm reading Great Expectations, by Charles Dickens.  Was that high school freshmen reading or sophomore? 

Movie Marquee: There may not be too much time for movies but we have, My Blue Heaven with Steve Martin and Rick Moranis, and Jane Eyre, that would be a Kyle movie.

Something Quiltie: Last night the Quiltie Buddies meet at Whole Foods to begin our new BOM.  The pattern is called Snowbound. It was a freebie from Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill.  I marvel at each person's creativity and interpretation of a pattern.  We can all look at the same original drawing and in our own eyes see something new.  That's a beautiful thing.

One of My Favorite Things: Finding a few extra stolen moments in the day to do some hand stitching.

I’m Thinking About: There have been lots of "beginning of the year" quotes floating around in blog land, but this one seemed to catch my thoughts.  

"Kiss your Life, Accept it, just as it is.  Today. Now.  So that those moments of happiness you're waiting for don't pass you by."

What’s For Dinner: I found some minestrone soup frozen in the freezer.  Tah Dah!

Do you remember where this was?
At your Aunt Harriet's house

Until Next Time-
