Nature is full of the greatest ideas for color, whimsy and even a whole new outlook on life. I must say that stopping and looking at the "small things" has become my new most favorite thing to do. Why do we always need to look at the "big picture" - sometimes I find that to be very depressing. So my advice to everyone today is to stop and look at the "small things" in life and be fascinated, amused and surprised by what you see.

Plaids from Kansas Troubles, (shown in the photo) may need to be made into a fun snowman quilt pattern by Meme's Quilts called "Snow Row" that I bought about three years ago - you see I can sometimes make a decision - just carrying it out may take a bit longer.

I was able to make it to the big city (Winnipeg) for a few days and spent time with my daughter - planting all those perennials, shopping, coffee and visiting printing places. Wow is that amazing the stuff those places can produce on short notice and with just a quick little file download. Quite impressed! I have confirmation from them that they can do anything by email and I will not need to make the trip again - very worthwhile adventure for me. I was even able to get some designs printed on fabric - not cotton but still gives me a really good feel for what's going on.
Dentist appointment yesterday, council meeting today, district meeting tomorrow and I believe I'm supposed to actually be in my office on Friday. Photography class tomorrow night - remember I missed last week - so now I'm out of the loop. My homework from last week will have to do for tomorrow night I guess.
I was also able to get my laptop fixed up - it's now received a memory boost of 2/3rds more than it's original memory! How cool is that? This is the machine that I have come to HATE over the last six months and now (I hope) it will be working better than new. Thanks to my extended warranty purchase, it has a new motherboard and a new harddrive and now I have more RAM so I should be good to go - and I do mean go - it is the system that follows me around everywhere. Don't get me wrong, I really do love my new desktop computer with it's wonderfully wide screen and lots, and lots of speed, but sometimes you need that portability. Now I have both! Lucky me (knock on wood!).
Well, I've tried to post three pictures tonight and none of them are wanting to cooperate - I'll try again tomorrow - if all goes well - and then at least you'll have something to look at while you read my ramblings.
Until next time,

This was after coat #1 - a nice lipstick pink - don't you think?
This is coat #2 - just went on about an hour ago.
Scary looking, isn't it? Hopefully after this coat dries and the sun isn't reflecting off it, it will look a bit darker. I think there may be hope - looks like it might take another two coats at least. The undercoater was a light grey, but it should have been a lot deeper toned. I'll keep you posted on our pink door crisis!
Till next time,
