How I spent my May furlough day…

Had a furlough day yesterday…didn’t tell my husband (he’d have things lined up for me to do if I did tell him), and since he doesn’t leave for work until 8:30 a.m., I took myself and my laptop over to my sister’s house. Visited the kiddos while they were getting ready for school. IM’d my friend April while she was at work. 8:30 a.m. went home. 🙂

Fiddled around with the computer’s modem for about an hour…that included a very unproductive call with AT&T’s internet tech help, finally I said listen…maybe I’m just not asking the right questions, but I can’t understand you and you are not understanding me so I’m just going to hang up now and go to an AT&T store here in town. Bye-Bye.

Then I went to our community center and voted early for the Washoe County and State primary race.

Met my sister and her boss over at Qdoba for lunch. To the Reno Bead Shop to look for two items…didn’t find them but found something else. 🙂

Made two pairs of earrings…I have two birthdays coming up this weekend.

Finished putting together 9 more Crazy Nine Patch quilt blocks using a pattern from OH, FRANSSON!, for total of 18 8″ blocks.

But 18 blocks is not enough to make the quilt as she made it, so I’m just going to make it this way ~ maybe…probably…unless I change my mind.

Ate a bowl-full of these, the most evil nuts on earth…the California pistachio! Why oh why can’t I just stop at a handful?!

Got two new magazines and one quilt book…I love Hobby Farm Home so I picked up a copy of their URBAN FARM: Sustainable City Living magzine. I’m liking it a lot…may subscribe to it too. Haven’t opened up the MOTHER EARTH NEWS yet. And I’ve only flipped through the patterns of PINWHEEL PARTY by Ellen Pahl…I love all pinwheel quilt blocks!

I noticed that the Hawthorne tree is starting to bloom!

And I think that was about it…for dinner I made a tri-tip, salad and dinner rolls. Wrapped up the night with Antiques Road Show.

All went to bed…except Lucy, who woke up from a nap to commence ‘ripping around the house’ time.

    I do love those Crazy 9 Patch designs… very bright and pretty!

    I had no idea HFH had a more urban magazine – will have to look for…

    That might be the funniest picture I’ve seen yet of Ms. Lucy ROFL!
