Just Life

Ten on Tuesday | Labor Day Weekend.

…and just like that, another summer’s come and gone. Today, Carole’s asked us to share highlights from Labor Day Weekend – I’m happy to oblige!

splash pad, chocolate croissant, post-shopping toast…and happy 21st!

1. Wove in 100 ends (which ended up being more like 220 by the time I split those last 40 into four pieces to bury the ends deep into the yarn – machine washing isn’t for sissies).

2. Met up with Lydia at Intown Quilters. and bought two Kaffe Jelly Rolls, a few yards of backing fabric and another piece for binding.

3. Celebrated successful quilt shopping with a glass of wine and lunch at Leon’s Full Service.

4. Skipped church to join Katie and Charlie for cappucinos (just us grown-ups), quiche and a chocolate croissant – Charlie’s first! … not sure exactly what he thinks.

5. Followed by a walk around our new city center and a quick “splash” in the splash pad…not sure what he thinks about that either!

6. Took a Sewing 101 class at Joann’s. I haven’t sewed in about 20 years – happy to report t’s a bit like riding a bicycle.

7. Took my first yoga class at the Y since May 8. (happy I can move today, but know that my abs are talking to me 😉

8. Joined my niece and a few other family and friends for her 21st birthday celebration (yes, that’s Lambrusco upside down in the margarita…she loved it!)

9. Then, shared a bottle of wine with my neighbor Michele…just catching up.

10. …and finally, went to bed at 8:30…nothing like eight-plus hours of sleep to get me ready for another Tuesday with Charlie!
