They Are Laying on the Tree of Life

Finally, the blanket that I toiled over since January is complete and in the hands of its owners. We brought the blanket to Andy and Shannon this weekend when we went to visit. Their wedding is less than 3 weeks away, and there is a good chance that Jared will not be able to make it out to Jersey for the big day, so we wanted to give it to them together.

They were very excited, and loved the blanket. Their reaction was good, but definatly not big enough. I am just afraid that no reaction could have been big enough for how many frustrating hours I put in on it! I am sure many of you quilters can understand that, right?

Here are the photos...

Too Far

I cam across this article today. I believe pill-mania has gone a little too far. If you have a few minutes, read through the article and let me know what you think.

Who Said Hugo is Dull?

Wednesday morning I woke up and looked out the window and saw a police car parked in a driveway across the street. I looked down the street and saw two more squad cars blocking off the road. I watched the action over the course of several hours. During that time, a woman and her daughter came out of the house with bags packed, and a dog kennel in tow, and got into one of the squad cars. There was no sign of the man living there. Then two policemen clothed in white jumpsuits and masks, complete with yellow rubber galoshes, pulled container after container of liquid out of our neighbor's garage. Then they proceeded to test each container with a device that looked like a large walkie-talkie. The "antennae" part was actually like a straw that they stuck in the end of each container and then punched some buttons on the keypad. Our best guess at all this action was a drug bust. This morning our conclusions were confirmed. They busted the start of a meth lab.

As Promised...

We had my parents over for a grill out on Saturday evening. It was a great evening, full of fun and laughter. After dinner, we sat around the living room and chatted. I commented on how trendy my mother's new style was as she sported this glittery, rainbow hat cocked dramitically to one side. It is the lastest fashion these days...

This is the moment she found out she would be famous. "You will be famous by tomorrow. This is going on my blog!"

Being the cool mom that she is, she decided that if she was destined for fame, she may as well strike a signature pose. You can look for this photo in all the lastest high fashion magazines.
