I spent Thursday morning at DD’s and got to play on her iPad. I was “hooked” … so DH and I bought a couple. Even though our everyday computers are laptops, they’re 17” laptops and are pretty big and pretty heavy … they’re a bit of a pain when traveling. We’re thinking that iPads will be much more convenient when traveling. DH is ready to scrap his laptop when it starts to die and just use his iPad. I’m not quite ready to give up a laptop, since I use so many non-iPad programs (Quicken, Word and Excel) on a regular basis. I’ve read blogs were posts were written and published on iPads, so I need to spend some time trying that out. If anyone has any advice or tips, I’d appreciate it.
Today’s forecast was originally for a dry day with temperatures in the lower 60’s … an ideal day to get out there and trim back my roses and my butterfly bush. But I woke up this morning to rain. I have to admit that I’m not too disappointed, as I would really rather spend the day quilting. I didn’t get any quilting done over the last couple of days, and I miss my time with needle and thread. I also have a few other indoor projects that I need to get to … finishing up laundry, cleaning out the junk drawer, doing something with my stack of magazines, etc. Plus I haven’t been to the Y in a couple of days.
If you click on the picture, you can view it in more detail. The colors, if you can imagine, are even a little more intense than they appear in the photo, especially the orange and yellow. Those are certainly not fabrics that I would choose for myself, but I have to admit that I’m pleased with how it’s turning out.
I mentioned that T#1 is going to State … March 16-17. As I expected, DD asked me if I’d be available to watch the littles that weekend, but T#1 begged and pleaded for me to come watch him … how could I possibly say no? (DSIL’s mom will watch the littles.) I’m so excited to be able to watch him compete at this level.
Don’t forget to set your clocks ahead tonight.
