3 of the last 4 days, we’ve matched or exceeded previous record highs –> the weather has been absolutely gorgeous. All the warm temperatures seem to be bringing in stormy weather. Up until this morning, the storms had bypassed us (although we had some freaky, scary winds last night at bedtime), but we finally got some rain this morning.
Not only is tomorrow St. Patrick’s Day … it’s also National Quilting Day. National Quilting Day, the third Saturday in March, was established in 1991 to celebrate the rich history of quilt making and the many contributions quilters have made to their families and communities. I guess that means I’d better be wearing something green while quilting.
Speaking of Saturday, we’ll be heading south a week from tomorrow. I was hoping that it would be chilly here … so we could really enjoy the warm weather in southern Florida, but no matter … I just remind myself that there’s no beach back here in Illinois.
With the rain, I guess I’ll be quilting today while DH and I watch college basketball aka March Madness. I’m not a big basketball fan, but I don’t mind watching a little basketball during March Madness. If I don’t really care too much who wins, I usually will pick an underdog or a team that hasn’t made it to “the big dance” in a long time … it’s been 12 years since St. Louis University has been to March Madness, and since they’re a local team, I’ll be rooting for them.
