We're back home from our trip. We returned home a day early on Friday. Unfortunately the weather turned way south on us - rain and clouds, so we really didn't want to go fishing. But we did manage to amuse ourselves - more about that in a bit.
A very large package and two very happy kitties greeted us as soon as we got in the door. After loving Sasha and Gracie May, we tore into the package. We had eagerly awaited its arrival all week only to find out it would be delivered while we were gone! Our first Barn Quilt! Isn't it pretty? It's called a Wyoming Valley block. I'd never heard of it until now. I loved that it has some of the green in our house! I got it from a wonderful Etsy seller HERE.
Sherry is very talented and a really nice person! I don't think this will be the only barn quilt we order from her! I can think of at least two other spots on the house itself that are just screaming for another barn quilt! Do check out Sherry's Etsy site! You'll find loads of designs for a very reasonable price!
A treeless apple you say? Yup! I've gone over to the "dark side". Since fishing in the rain wasn't any fun, we decided to spend a day wandering around University Village in Seattle. My little Netbook that I've had for years and years was on it's last legs. I'd heard about the new MacBook Air and thought it might be a perfect replacement.
I thought being a die-hard PC fan from nearly the beginning of PC's (1980's) that this would be a very difficult decision for me. One look in the Apple store and I was sold. This little beauty only weighs 2 pounds and has an 11 inch screen, but is oh, so powerful.
Check out how slim the profile is! I measured the back when the top is closed and it's only 3/8"! It didn't take me long to get used to the operating system, either. Having Mr. Squash's old iPad helped some, but even without that knowledge I would have been up and running in no time at all. I suspect in short order I'll be ditching all my other portable computer gadgets!
On our way home we stopped at an orchard we've been wanting to visit. We came home with loads of apples and peaches. Let the baking begin!
