It was a beautiful sight as the sun rose over the mountains yesterday. The picture doesn't do it justice at all. The snowcapped mountains didn't last long as the weather warmed up a bit. It was a two-cup of joe day as I contemplated why my California house insurance company is located in Texas and why in the world would they FLY an adjuster from there to my house just to look at a fence.
The last time this happened, they just paid me a standard price per foot without even seeing it in person, so the wait is on.
In the meantime, while rummaging though my too-large purse, I discovered an unused $25 discount card from the fabric store. It expires on 1/31, so I hot-footed it to deep in the heart so as not to lose that free money.
In case you were wondering you cannot find ANYTHING in a Tucson quilt store for $25. I required backing for this "thing". As you can tell, I'm not the least bit fond of the fabric OR the colors. Cooper will be so excited to find he's getting ANOTHER quilt!
At any rate ..... squirrel!!!!! ..... you know how that goes. I saw a piece of fabric I could not live without. Nine yards and one jelly roll later, I was in debt up to my ears. That $25 didn't go very far. A jelly roll is a package of 40 pieces of fabric, all cut into 2-1/2 wide pieces and rolled up, for those who were wondering.
Just as I got home, guess who graced my water station with their presence. I haven't seen one of these guys during the day in months and months. The two on the left are sipping from a huge semi flat bowl set up for the baby quail.
I'm pretty sure it was Mom who took off first, sauntering on down the hill.
Wait MOM!! Wait!! I need one more drink! In no time they disappeared into the desert. Cute little guys, right? But stinky and SO destructive!
SURPRISE!! Like my new truck? Yeah, you know that isn't the truth, but I sure would like to have it for my very own. This is the truck of my dreams, but sadly belongs to Mr. Chance. It's parked here while his concrete is being poured this morning. You know, in case he needs to run and get something from the store. Sadly, it will be gone in a few days when the concrete cures.
