JMM and I took a long weekend trip to Washington, D.C. to visit our daughter. We had a perfect visit, alternating sightseeing, resting at her apartment and watching The Great British Bake Off episodes, and eating at some really good restaurants. Dear Daughter was a wonderful hostess and tour guide.
It is with great sadness the I will be removing SchmidleyScribblings from my sidebar. Her daughter posted on her blog that Dianne died from a complication following a stroke. I never met Dianne in person but she was a dear blog friend and I will miss her lively humor.
I finished reading At the Edge of the Orchard by Tracy Chevalier. It may have been a best seller but I didn't like it at all. It was one grim hardship after another for almost the entire book. I am looking forward to Jacqueline Winspear's new Maisie Dobbs, In This Grave Hour. I also have an audio book Alexander McCall Smith's latest Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency book Precious and Grace. I like to listen this series because the reader's voice just brings the stories to life.
I finally finished the Sampler Quilt top. I will take it to be machine quilted next weekend.
That's all the news from OakMeadows where the cats are shedding all over the place and the people just live with it.
