Another Day, Another Outing And Other Stuff

After getting an early start, we managed to pick up some “katt fude” at Petsmart, socks and a shirt at J. C. Penney’s, and some phthalo blue and sap green water mixable oil paint at Hobby Lobby.  We brought home some treats for our fur kids – Alex got some GNC salmon flavored urinary tract support treats while Katie got some GNC salmon flavored multivitamin treats.  The good news is that both katts like their treats and eat them without balking.

We “Got-R-Done” and were back home by eleven o’clock so a quick phone call to Mike and Peggy resulted in a trip into Stacey’s Old Time Drug Store in Foley for lunch.  Stacey’s has a soda fountain and serves sandwiches along with old fashioned milk shakes and ice cream sundaes.  Mike and I had polish sausages while our dates munched on hot dawgs and, of course, we all had a drink from the soda fountain.  Mike’s was a root bear float, Peggy enjoyed a chocolate malt, Judy smacked her lips over a peanut butter/chocolate milk shake, and I partook in a chocolate shake.  It was all good and we left satisfied.

The rest of the day was used for preparing our share of our 242 group meal (baked beans and coleslaw) and relaxing in our recliners while reading in our Nooks.  We attended the four o’clock social and then came home to pack up our goodies and head out for our 242 home group get together. 

Today is shaping up to be a nice PJ day.  It’s pouring outside and threatens to continue doing so for the rest of the day.  Don’tcha just hate it when that happens?  Smile   We’ll probably get some inside “Ta Do” list items checked off as well as spend some time reading.    

Oh, by the way, Judy had taken her Scrappy Quilt Of Many Colors over to the clubhouse’s quilting group for show and tell.  She laid it out on the tables and Norm snapped a picture of it.  So here, for your viewing pleasure, is the Scrappy Quilt Of Many Colors (note:  the horizontal sashings and the borders have not been sewed on yet):

Scrappy Quilt Of Many Colors 

You can see the thirteen different pieces in each block and what is hard to tell is that the sashings are a purple design, not black.  The fabrics used in the quilt are left overs from all the grandchildren’s quilts and pillow cases as well as other projects that Judy has made.

Bye, Bye For Now and May God Bless  - - - - - - - - - -
