  10. Today is my mama's birthday. She went to heaven in 1997. I owe everything I learned about sewing to her. She taught me to make doll clothes and piece quilt tops as a kid. She would be amazed to see all of the beautiful quilts these days. She used scraps people gave her, and only bought the cheapest of materials, but she still ended up with pretty quilts.

  11. My feet are cold. I need to fold laundry. I feel like baking something. I like those solid quilts. I have two quilts that I need to bring schedule time on the long arm for finishing. I'd sew with Carla today if we lived close enough.

  28. I went to my 3rd florist consultation for my upcoming September wedding yesterday and finally realized that my floral budget was way too small. This is what happens when you never buy flowers... I really don't want to go to a U Pick flower farm and pick them myself on the day of my wedding, so I guess this means I'll have to increase my budget?

  146. Has it been 10 years since the Seinfeld finale? If it has, they should be out of jail by now. Also, I must confess that I prefer Colin Firth as Mr. Darcy to Matthew Mcfadyen (not that I object to him at all, mind you). And I'm eating vanilla ice cream with Nutella on it for the first time. I'm not sure about the combo, but Nutella on graham crackers -- divine!

  176. Dear Mr. Random Generator: Did you know that Oreos in the freezer actually taste better than when they are NOT in the freezer?

  177. Here's something random and funny. My little black dog hates the brown truck. He just spotted the UPS truck pass by our house and got very upset. The other dog was thinking, no Mr. brown Truck don't come here, I'll get bombed (which is true, lol).

  178. Love the solids. And I love how you used the word groovy. I used to (retired in May) throw that word in every once in a while with my high school students. I'd say, "Have a groovy day" when they were leaving. It always freaked them out.

  185. Random thought from a few mintes ago - I really think those kosher pickles should have been kept in a jar, as the taste seems to have gone bland to the ones in the ziploc. :) I love solids but I don't seem to stock them as much as i do prints...

  187. I think I could eat pizza for every meal and not complain. * p.s. trying to think of something random when people ask you to think of something random is harder than you think. :)

  188. Snowmobile racing Sat here in northern Maine. I don't care for snowmobiles and cold, but it's our first racing circuit to come to town.
    I just bought some kona grey solid day before yesterday...I have been dragging my feet about it, but I'm seeing so many quilts done with solids I'm getting use to the idea...grey seems to be the new neutral.

  189. Today was my first day at the gym after about a year and an additional 20 or so pounds. Just the "fitness evaluation" knocked me out for the rest of the day. Jeez, it's going to be a long ride to lose 45 lbs. The good thing is the jacuzzi and pool are awesome! O

  192. We were shopping today at the grocery store, my 4- and 2-year-old in the back of the shopping cart. While waiting in line a long time, we were finally almost up, and my son got his sucker stuck to the back of the elderly gentleman in front of us.

  193. Hey there, my name is Bob, are you the queen of this castle? I am in your neighborhood today cleaning carpets. Yes, I see that you only have hardwood, but, ummm...perhaps you'd let us clean your upholstery. Oh, all of your furniture is leather. I see. Well then, here's my card.
