I got sick Tuesday evening with bad stomach cramps & spent most of the night in the bathroom. O.K. that was too much information.
Wednesday I had a fever & slept most of the day, so today I was trying to play catch up, but while dusting I came across this great, little magazine, that I picked up while visiting Oregon & since I still am tired, I decided to take a little vacation & sit down to read it.

This is my favorite thrift shop! It is in the small town of Ralston Wyoming. I drove passed it for years without stopping, & just really discovered it last Summer. I always find great treasures there.
It is also a consignment store, so I've been taking my cast offs there & trading them in for other peoples. You know "One man's junk is another's treasure!"
Yesterday I was into pictures & filled some empty walls in my house.
I can't seem to get my pictures to go thru out my post. They always go to the top. Any suggestion's would be greatly appreciated!!!

Left overs!!! Unfortunately you have to cook something before hand to have leftovers.
It's not that I hate to cook. Infact sometimes I rather enjoy it, but when too many things are going on & I never know when hubby is going to come in for dinner, or if daughter will even eat. She would rather have microwave food then eat a home cooked meal with Mom & Dad. Then I would rather just have last nights pickings, but if you don't cook you run out of left overs fast!!!

This is a quilt I made last winter.
It seems that every where I go lately, people are quilting.
I have never made a big quilt, just small decorative ones.
It is fun to pick the matching fabric's & put them all together.
When I was first married, my husband & I lived on a ranch 40 miles out of town. We had no TV & I didn't drive at the time, so was quite lonely & isolated.
The ranch lady's in that area would get together once a week for a quilting bee.
I sure did enjoy that day of the week!!!

I've just finished reading "The Beach House"
What a fitting novel to bring on a coastal getaway!
I started this book in my favorite reading spot, out on my sunny redwood deck & it has seemed like a mini vacation when I sit down to read.
This novel is a light romance, that reminds me of a "Nora Roberts". It centers on a mother, daughter relationship, on the Isle of Palms.
They are on a turtle team, a conservation group, helping to protect sea turtle nests & hatchlings.
Each chapter starts out with information about the sea turtle.
"The turtle uses her hind flippers in an elaborate digging ritual, alternately digging out scoops of sand to create an egg chamber eighteen to twenty- two inches deep"
