Seems like just yesterday was Friday, the start of another weekend … and now it’s over. Time really does fly.
This past weekend was a quiet one here at Chez Nana … purposely so because we’re still getting settled back into our routines here. I did a decent amount of quilting on my wall quilt … I’m maybe a little more than halfway done … it’s amazingly slow going. Given the fact that it’s only 42”x42”, I thought it would quilt up more quickly than it is … but there are 400 half-square triangle blocks to be quilted, so I guess it’s not too surprising that it’s going more slowly than I anticipated. But what I do have quilted so far is looking pretty good.
I attended a Pampered Chef Party Saturday afternoon, hosted by a neighbor. She lives about a block away, so I don’t know her as well as I’d like (she’s still working full time, so I don’t see a lot of her). I ordered a manual food processer (I have a larger electric one, but it’s so big and unwieldy that I just never use it). I also got a delicious recipe for chicken salad (i.e., a salad with chicken) … I think maybe we’ll have that for dinner this evening.
I finally got the laundry from our trip all caught up. I have to confess that it took longer than usual because I’d start a load in the morning, get busy with other stuff and not remember to put that load into the dryer until late in the day … takes a long time to get caught up on laundry when you’re only doing one load a day. ha!
Our weather has confirmed that fall has officially arrived. We had lows in the lower 40’s (39 Sunday night), and while that’s been a little chillier than I’d like (it’s chilly in the house in the mornings, but I refuse to turn on the furnace just yet so I bundle up), the highs have gotten into the upper 60’s, so the days have been nice.
