I’ll be the one in a tiara and pearls
Tomorrow we head off to Vermont – this year it’s my Mother, my friend Sue and myself. Pat is stuck at work but may attend at some point. Anyway, I think Sue and I may have started a little tradition last year when we both white gloved at the opening wearing a tiara. My tiaras and pearls are packed, I have a change or two of clothes and way more fabric than a person can use in five days. If I run out, there’s always the vendors! Mom and Sue are taking classes but me, I’m opting for quality time with my sewing machine. Hope to move that pink and green quilt along a bit.
Anyway, it’s a huge deal and there’s a big pile o’stuff to put into the car and I better leave room for Mom and her stuff.
Need a tiara of your own? I have gotten a few at Amy Lee Designs. I don’t get a cut (how unqueenly would that be???), but do tell her where you heard about her!
Here’s a photo of my purple shoes in amongst things at the Apple Store. Looks like a muppet show – name things that are purple! Photo by Matthew Vilmany and I touched it up.
And why are we drinking SWITCH-el?
Should you make the switch to Mac? Most likely yes, says Mossberg.
(disclaimer: I didn’t start out with this thought – it just sorta happened! Honest!)
From a hand-written index card given to me at a dance years ago, in response to some serious pleading on my part:
1 cup cider vinegar
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp ground ginger
1 gallon cool water.
Mix and serve to men in hayfield.
If you’re not working in the hayfields, drink served over ice. You can certainly half this or double it and adjust the sweetness to taste. If you are working in the hayfields, common wisdom is that drinking things that are just barely cool is better for you, so omit the ice. Enjoy!
Although there were some decidedly low points today, there were also some good points. One is when I found my iPod after coming home from work. I was pretty sure where it would be, but it was still a good thing to have it back in hand. :-)
Next — got a pair of PURPLE Converse All*Stars sneakers. Couldn’t decide if I wanted pink or purple. Finally asked for pink but they didn’t have any, so it was clearly a sign that I need purple shoes. How cool is that?
Finally, got my left earring back in. Last night I knew that something had happened there – whether I slept weird on it or it got caught in hair or what — it was definitely sore. I thought I’d change it out and put in a new pair. Oooops – couldn’t get it back in. Today I wore one dangly on the side I could still use. So now I have my little diamonds in both those holes and I’ll go back to square one with that one. Not sure why I’m having such a problem there getting it to heal.
Anyway, it’s hot hot hot here today and I’m mightily glad it’s friday. How ’bout you?
Last night I was pretty pooped. I did iron some of those little squares for the pink/green quilt. And I thought about the in-between squares, and wondered if I had enough different large scale mottle-ly greens to get any sort of gradation going there. Should it be all green? Same value darker pinks/greens? I’ll probably end up trying both before deciding. About all I did decide was that putting a small circle into each of the “plain” squares would not be a good thing. What a relief, LOL!
