Thursday Road Trip

Thursday, August 20, 2009

Today I went on a road trip and met up with my good friend Sally. We had a great day, we went to stores we usually don't go in, found some jeans on sale, and went to our FAVORITE store--Barnes and Noble. Sally is always a good sport, and we did go to a couple of fabric stores! But the addition to my stash will not be big. I haven't spent a day just goofing off with Sally in a long time, and it felt wonderful.

Yesterday I pressed all the blocks I have sewn so far. Maybe tomorrow I will be able to sew a bit more. This weekend is Riverboat Days--parade, fireworks, hundreds of vendor booths in the park, lots of things to see and do. I will be volunteering on Saturday, but plan to wear my crown, mask, and beads. Did I tell you the theme this year is Mardi Gras?? The Corps always has a float that's theme is about water safety and we have to figure some way to tie it to Mardi Gras. The suggestion was made for the slogan "Show us your Buoys" but that one didn't make the cut! I don't remember what the slogan will be, but everyone has masks, crowns, beads, and gold foil coin bubble gum to throw. Ken will be here for a few days, and maybe my sisters, so I am planning on having fun!!

It's so nice to be able to get out once in a while with friends ... especially when they let you go to fabric stores!!

The parade sounds like a hoot! Have a great time!!

Forget the beads, as MM suggested--go for the gold chocolate coins!

Have a good time!
