Today is Friday … but not just any Friday. It’s Friday the 13th … but not just any Friday the 13th. It’s the last Friday the 13th of 2012.
DD and her family left for Colorado this morning for a long vacation. I admit that I'm spoiled with getting to see them several times during the week ... so I'll miss them. We did discuss my going along … I had to decline when it was decided that I’d sit in a rocker strapped to the top of their van. I really thought I’d be going when T#3 suggested that I be allowed to go so I could do the driving.
I wouldn’t mind going back to Colorado (we visited Estes Park and Rocky Mountain National Park 2 years ago). The majestic beauty of the Rockies was breathtaking … but when it comes time to plan our trips, the beach always wins out.
Speaking of trips, we’ll be in the Outer Banks in 2 months … but who’s counting? We’re talking about adding a couple of days to our trip to visit the lighthouses of southern Virginia.
The dermatitis on my arms is just about healed up. It would be nice to know what caused it … so I know what to avoid in the future.
I haven’t done any quilting since Sunday … I had plans of a quilting marathon tomorrow to go along with the NCIS marathon on USA Network, but we’re going to go visit my dad instead. The marathon continues through Sunday … I foresee an afternoon of quilting and NCIS.
Watched my first Star Wars movie yesterday - Return of the Jedi. I had the boys over yesterday afternoon, and I asked T#1 what he’d like to do while T#3 took his nap. He chose renting a Star Wars movie. I enjoyed it more than I thought I would … I’m not into science fiction, but it wasn’t as much sci-fi as action.
The icemaker in our refrigerator has continued to act up, sometimes a couple of times in a week. DH talked to the owner at the shop where we bought the refrigerator … he said that it could be as simple as an alignment problem. Or it could be that we need a new icemaker. The prices he quoted for either scenario were less than I thought that it would be, so we’re getting it serviced. It’s a pain (and not very energy efficient) to have to bring out the hairdryer and stand there with the freezer door open while melting that errant ice cube.
Happy weekend, all!
