Another Windy Day In Paradise??

We had a late night last night—at least later than we usually do when Michael is working—spur of the moment dinner with friends, their newborn little girl (the recipient of the baby quilt I just finished) and their four other kiddos.  I never had kids of my own and I love it when I hit the nail on the head choosing the right gifts for little munchkins!  I went to Wal Mart, right by the cashiers there was a display of children’s books.  I bought several as well as some bathtub toys and put it all in a plastic bucket.  The books were a total hit!!  The little 2 year old who hates to take a bath kept playing with the bathtub toys—I would say, “you can’t play with those unless you take a bath.”  He would say, “no want one!” 

So, we were late getting home and thus it was an early morning for Michael.  I slept in until the wind tried to tear the windows awnings off the motorhome—then hastily dressed, went outside and rolled in the awnings. 

Emmi and I went to the park to walk today—there is a lady who is frequently in the park with her little terrier mix dog.  He is usually on a leash or in her arms.  The woman has told me before the dog doesn’t get along with other dogs.  Today he was off the leash, she picked him up as soon as Emmi and I got close but for some strange/stupid reason she put the dog down just as we were walking past—I reached down, lifted Emmi into my arms and the dog made a run at my ankle.  I stomped my foot and yelled “no”—the woman laughed, saying, “he always get the person before he gets the dog.”  Can you imagine?????  I said, “then I suggest you keep him on a leash.” and kept walking. 

The rest of the day was spent quilting and helping Mom make a Mondo bag—an oversized bag made from 2 1/2” strips.  I almost finished the quilt I’m working on—yippee!  One more to do to make my goal of four quilts this two week work session.

Dinner tonight is homemade bread, orzo pasta with homemade marinara sauce.  YUM!

Yesterday morning Michael sent me a text telling me the crane had been set atop the Olympus hull making it look even larger than it did previously!
