Disaster strikes!! I tried to move the remaining pictures of Costa Rica from the oldest computer to the second in line. It didn't like the fact that I had no blank CD to transfer them to. Although I thought I was copying, it seems I was moving, and now the files don't want to open at all. BIG SIGH!!
So ...... on with an ordinary day in Arizona!
HAPPY NEW YEAR'S EVE
Back in the day, you might find me sailing the San Francisco Bay on a tall ship to a spot of exquisite cold, where we could watch the fireworks up close and personal. For the last few years, it's been watching the fireworks between my two cranky dogs on the living room floor, fighting for Nancy space.
Sadly, there will be no celebrating THIS year!! The suppression this country is letting happen in some states is epic. At least Arizona is letting businesses stay open.
At any rate, I think I should hit the store today for a big bottle of refreshment. It might make the day a little better.
I spent most of yesterday going over 25 bunny videos. It's funny that they know when the coyotes are out. The bunnies play around, then disappear just as the "boys" appear, who are enchanted with the smells they find. When they wander off, the bunnies reappear.
Having purchased gift cards (for myself of course) at Quilter's Market, I quickly dropped a bundle on parts and pieces I needed to finish two quilts. This binding was one of them, which I spent hand sewing all day long. I'm STILL not done.
Speaking of the "boys" ... here they are. Just look at those tails!! These guys are fat and happy!! Check out the markings on the backs. I've never seen that before!! It was one of this group that I saw when looking for Miss Jessie.
Just because I could, and because Patty gave me an unused leek, I made clam chowder. I have to say, all clams are not equal. Sadly, I did not have the GOOD clams and used the only variety in the store. It is definitely NOT the same. I'll thicken it a little more today and force it down. This one was a little too pricey for the cemetery.
Here's the other quilt I finished last week. One of the things I picked up was extra fabric to make pillow shams. Unfortunately it will have to wait since they did not have the white I needed. So many unfinished projects make me crazy!!
Lucky for me, the Chance household received gift cards too, but for FOOD!! They invited me to dinner at our favorite chef salad haunt. Serial Grillers has the absolute best salad and ranch dressing. I don't even LIKE ranch dressing, but theirs is delicious!!!
On our way out the door, we were treated to this magnificent scene. You just have to love Arizona sunsets.
I doubt very much I'll be staying up late tonight. There's not much to celebrate other than I'm still breathing!!
I did order a humidifier in the hopes I won't be seeing that 1/4 inch thick, 2 inch long blue lightning between the light switch and my fingers ANY MORE!! I'll let you know if it works.
