Hello all, hope you had a good weekend. My was not bad, not good. Friday, I went to a quilt show with my bud Lisa. The show was held in a school that had no air conditioning. Needless to say it was hot, hot, hot and not very conducive to looking at quilts or shopping at the vendor's booths. We were in and out of there in a flash. On the way home, a storm came out of nowhere. It was raining so hard some folks pulled off the side of the freeway. I think that storm lead to some of the storms that happened in my home!

Big and I had a blow out (can't remember why, but it was a big one!). The Baby and her boyfriend had a blow out on Saturday. I am not sure what will happen with their relationship. I think they will stay together, but perhaps not. They broke up for about a year and both dated other people. The Baby asked him if he was intimate with anyone and he continually said no until this Saturday and then he was honest and said he had been with someone else. The Baby is hurt by the fact he was with someone else, but the main issue is that he lied to her, repeatedly. We have always been a very honest family. The Baby has been raised to tell the truth, even when it seems easier to lie. Many times it is easier to lie, but the lie always comes back to you and usually makes things worse. So, we have been dealing with lots of drama in our house.

For the good part of the weekend, we went to see the movie Despicable Me. It was so cute and was a much needed diversion from the stress in our house. I also volunteered for a couple of hours at a "clothes line" quilt show my guild had. I actually chatted with a few of the members and am beginning to feel like I finally belong. There were about 20 quilts on display. It was a nice day and there was a light breeze, it was so peaceful to sit and watch the quilts blow in the breeze. Here are a couple photos from the show.

I don't feel like doing anything today, I think I am emotionally worn out from the weekend. I have an overwhelming "To Do" list. Every time I get one thing crossed off I have to add a couple more things. Very depressing. Oh well, off to the salt mines!

Pin It Now!

Cynthia, that doesn't sound like a nice day at all. Sorry to hear you all had blow outs. I was once told - a leopard never changes it's spots -, I chose to ignore that pearl of wisdom, how silly of me!
I sill go see Despicable Me when it comes out here.
The quilts look beautiful hanging outdoors.
I hear it's really really hot there now, hope it cools down for you soon.

Sorry you had such a stressful weekend. Not fun at all.

Cool about the clothesline quilt show. The blue, green, and ecru quilt especially caught my attention. I'm thinking I'll have to try this color combination sometime.

Hey Cynthia
You certainly could have had an easier time emotionally.
With 3 daughters, we've seen lots of kinds of guys and dealt with all sorts of break-ups. So far, most of them didn't give up whatever errant behaviour broke them up. I do beleive people can change, but believe it has start with a heart change, then actions will follow with sincerity. I hope your daughter's beau is of the second kind.

Love the quilts. Been too long since I've been to a show, can't wait for Nov.
