Oh my goodness. It is so cold right now. Forget those pictures you saw of our area during the US Open. It is wear a coat cold. The nice thing about it being cold is that I get in the mood to cook and with the new stove, it should be a whole lot of fun. Actually, though, tomorrow I am going to make a recipe I have been wanting to try from It is the May 24 post for Red Beans and Coconut Rice. It looks delicious. I have made several things that were very successful and quite delicious from Stefanie's blog, so I am really looking forward to trying it.

It was really cold this afternoon, but Liesl and I met up with my daughter by the water for a walk. Liesl loves to walk but today I think she really just wanted to go home and lay down on the sofa. She ate her puppy dinner as soon as we got home and stretched out on the sofa for a good nap. We saw another mini schnauzer on our walk, I can always tell one by that jaunty little trot. My daughter thinks it is so funny how schnauzers ignore each other. Liesl will go out of her way to meet every other dog on a walk, but a schnauzer can just keep on walking. I have spoken with a professional breeder about this, and she says that it is just something that they do. It is funny to watch, though.

I have been becoming inspired to make a quilt soon. I do have another staycation coming up in a few weeks, and perhaps that would be a good time to get some piecing done. I think I will have to get out my quilting books and pick a good pattern. I have lots of vintage/retro fabric that I have collected over the past few years that I would love to make into something. I have to decide if I will make a wall hanging or an actual blanket. Perhaps I should start a little small...

Ohhhh cool weather sounds like heaven right now. It's 90' degrees and HUMID!!!

My mom is a wonderful quilter and I keep promising myself to carve out some time to learn to quilt. I have many a wall hangings quilted from mom and I'm in awe of the talent it takes.

Hope to see your quilting progress soon.
