Weekend Jump Start



We got a jump start on the weekend last night...
we went out on the lake and had a great evening with the newlyweds and DIL's parents..
and these ducks too! White ducks??? Hmm?

I love riding around and seeing the houses along the shore.
I might have to do a whole post on them!
 
Today was back to reality... but I did have to go to a certain doctor, one that starts with a "Ob/gyn". You know my philosophy on that! I need immediate reward for pain and suffering inflicted!
So I ran in to Jxxxxx's to pick up some needles and thread... and I saw this magazine! I have been wanting that magazine for months, ever since Carrie posted about it... and the fact that she has a quilt in it! I haven't really been to the big city to even try to find it... and there it was calling my name!  So,  how many would say that they would go to the "O" doctor just so they could get this magazine?
I don't see any hands up out there!
Anyway, now I have some new reading material for the weekend! (as soon as I finish my contest quilt and submit it to Kelly at Charming Chatter)
If you hadn't noticed I have been playing around with my blog too... I thought I would try on a simple look. I'm still working on it so check back and let me know what you think.

"Professional Molestation" that's what I call my yearly session lol! My family thinks that my humour is hilarious but I don't find that much funny about it. It's a necessary evil I know but it's still unpleasant. I mean how many people do you really want down there?!

Be happy that it's taken care of for another year now!

I think you really deserve those mags!

Uh, yeah. I was totally sitting on my hands! LOL! Your blog looks nice! Isn't it fun to play around with stuff like that? It's like re-arranging the furniture in your living room without having to do any dusting or lifting! :)
