I love this orange jacket, although it is a little tight right now so I can't really wear it.  It is sparkly and casual at the same time...hard to beat that.  I bought it in NY a few summers ago on a sale rack for about $15...I mean, I really had to get it for that price.  Unfortunately that was when I was a few pounds lighter and since it's a little fitted, um, it looked better on me then than it does now =-/...and I could button it then.  Sheesh, I remember when I was younger I wished I would have bigger boobs...Well, it seems that when I put on weight that's when I get them...I'd really rather not have big boobs, I guess...such wisdom comes with age...now if I could just get wiser and get rid of my butt, too...sigh...

Ok, so...I'm tired of the whole posting orange everyday thing...heh...What can I say, I get bored easily...So, I think a week was enough... It was fun and I learned that a theme for me only lasts about a week then it is time to move on...I wonder what I'll come up with next...if anything...=-) 

I've been hand quilting like a (sorta) fiend on my Jane Stickle quilt since the opening ceremonies of the Olympics.  I find it relaxing and I love seeing it get ever nearer to completion...I'm not promising that I won't put it away again and let it simmer some more at some point (Did I already say this?  Sounds familiar.) In fact, I'm fairly certain I can promise that it definitely WILL go back to simmer! In any case, I'm enjoying it now...

"They" say one more night of light rain then we will have a "warming trend."  I love that we have had so much good rain recently, though, because it makes the hills green.  The longer they are green, the longer I like it here and don't start pining for NY...which will start soon enough.  But, we have a cruise at the end of May and into June before I can even start thinking about my little house...Well, actually, I think about it all the time...but before I can think about GOING to it...My sister did a drive by today and sent me a snowy picture of it, it looks so sweet and lonely...but I can wait a few months...had enough snow and cold for this year in Scotland ...yep...

Have a great week everyone.  Hope you enjoyed the orange thing while it lasted =-)  Since this is my birthday week, I may just have to come up with some way to celebrate...=-)

You can always go around the color wheel. It's been nice seeing you post something more than nothing.
