The house is clean, spotless. The ribs are baking and the brownies cooling. And the hummus is chilling! And the folks will arrive soon!
Paula showed me how to connect my hexies into flowers to take the next step in construction. Carrie thought the hexies were interesting but is working on an applique idea for a baby quilt so we showed her how to use WonderUnder.
Oh yes.......we had cheesecake brownies and caramel macchiatos for dessert!
For Mother's Day Carrie gave me a bag of goodies that included a quilt magazine and this Avo Saver. It is very intriguing. You keep the pit in the avocado and it will save the half you don't eat.
I laughed because it looks like those earth sandals! Now I need some avocados!
I was hoping that my Purple Fitbit Charge HR would have arrived. I even thought that maybe Frank had intercepted it during the week and would wrap it up, but no such thing happened. He got off easily this morning since I told him I wanted the Fitbt for Mother's Day. the dogs gave me cards, and so did he. The card from the Bad Basset Boyz read: Thanks, Mom, for saving us! The one from Carrie said: I wouldn't be who I am without you as my Mom!
I'm in love with both of them!
The one I am listening to right now is The Invention of Wings by Sue Monk Kidd. It is set in 1804 and is about women on the plantation, one a slave and one her owner. I think the author wrote Traveling With Pomegranates, which was so incredibly good. And the Dance of the Dissident Daughter.
Tomorrow I will work on my hexies and for lunch have leftover ribs and a cheesecake brownie or two!
