A day of firsts

Today, for the first time ever, I watched a young man hop across a four-lane road with his pants around his ankles. You read that correctly. He pulled his trousers up once on the other side of the road, but they fell down again shortly after. His boxers were blue, in case you wonder.

Also for the first time ever, I sat in my kitchen for 10 minutes and watched a deer sneeze. Loudly. Repeatedly. She kept shaking her head and scratching her nose. I'm not sure if she's suffering from the same allergies as the humans in this area or if she was having a serious issue with an insect. My daughter sat with me and watched for a while. And you wonder why we don't need television? "Must-see TV .... the involuntary reactions of wildlife". Ok, so that doesn't really work.

About now you must be asking, "Where are the pictures?" Well, the first event was so shockingly sudden that I didn't have time to get the camera out of my purse while driving. The deer sneezing incident wasn't captured due to failing batteries (even though they were new batteries just yesterday).

Enjoying the wonder,


Today's quilting progress was to simply piece the backing of the super-bright quilt. I'll post photographs when it's completely done, binding and all.
