for several years now i’ve determined that vacations are for rejuvenating.
i never quite understood how one can go on vacation and not rest.
it always seems there is this constant need for moving, seeing, doing.
go, go, go…
getting up at a certain time, getting out the door to an activity and then when one returns home…
they need a vacation from their vacation.
right now i am on vacation.
a heather-style vacation.
meander from one thing to the next.
it. is. heaven.
i have had just two goals to meet:
1) finish binding 4 quilts (long standing unfinished quilts, that is)
2) get the fall mystery quilt top made.
i’ve got two quilts done and started the third the night before last all while watching north & south.
such a wonderful show/movie!
as for the fall mystery quilt, well, with a little determination i’m thinking i’ll get it done today.
here’s the jelly roll i’m working with.
isn’t it pretty??
here’s what they look like opened up.
and it’s very pretty in a quilt too.
right…so…back to vacation…
we are in beautiful lake chelan, washington.
staying at my friend debbie’s house.
her and her husband have gone up-lake on their boat with some other boating folk and we are house sitting.
here’s the view from their house.
they have blueberries
we went and saw despicable me 2.
(which was so good…we highly recommend it.)
ate at a taco wagon, played bocce, sat in the sun and the girls even
touched a butt.
i had fun thinking that up.
but mostly we’ve sat around reading and resting.
i will be ready for the fall now!
on a different note:
if you’ve not all ready seen my posts on Facebook then i’ve got an announcement for you.
yesterday (august 6th) i entered a contest (which i never do) for small businesses.
a commercial during the super bowl.
you read that correctly.
how cool would it be for a quilting business to have a commercial during the super bowl?!
so i need you to do me a favor and stop by to vote for me.
it’s super easy and will take as long as it takes for the browser to load the page.
click on ‘vote’ and you’re done.
i don’t know what my chances are…there are so many really great businesses vying for this spot.
i’m done now.
going to go back to my vacation!
have a lovely day!!
