I write. I quilt. I cook. I take photographs. What else is there?

Good Morning!

It's the weekend, finally.  What a week at work!  Exhausting emotionally and spiritually.  Not fun at all.  Still, it's having great friends that pulls me through.  Great friends like you.  Most of you don't know, but I visit your blogs almost every night.  Reading about your lives and what you're doing helps me step out of my own troubles.  So, thank you and keep writing.  Even if it's silly stuff.  Especially if it's silly stuff.  It helps people like me who just need to get back in touch with our lives.  It's also for this reason I'm making an effort to blog at least twice a week.  Maybe, someone else will need a little pick-me-up.

Anyway, enough of the mushy stuff.

Quilting:  I'm going to work on the black pinwheel quilt this weekend.  I'll post pics of my progress in the next posting.  Here's where I am now, working on the vines and leaves.

I'm also going shopping today (I hope) for the violet fabric for Judy Laquidara's monochromatic challenge.

Writing:  Today is a meeting of the Breathe writers' group.  I'll be taking chapters 7 and 8 of Moene's Rising for qritique.  Breathe also has a book signing coming up Wednesday at Northern Maine Community College in Presque Isle, Maine.  Very exciting.

Weather:  Snowy and cold.  It's winter in the frozen tundra. We don't have as much snow as we have had in years past. Everyone south of us is getting it.  Lower Maine got slammed in the last snowstorm. As well as Massachusetts (Hi Mom!).  Jake and Elwood are getting restless in the house.  They seem to think it's spring outside already.  I guess the groundhog didn't see his shadow, so spring is supposed to be soon coming.

I certainly hope so.

So, here's to warmer days!  This is a link to my favorite webcam.  Panama City Beach, Florida.  The picture looks a bit cold right now, but most days, the sun's shining and warm.  Enjoy!
