In 2003, I had a whopping total of three posts in the month of September. To be specific, I had a whopping total of three posts in the whole of 2003. That was the first time I'd ever blogged. Ever. (My very first blog post was quite touching -- read it here.) Who knew that ten years later, I'd still be plugging away at it?!
To be truthful, though, some months I definitely plug away better than others . . . it's more than a little ironic to me that a decade later, in the month of September, I still have a whopping three posts. LOL!
I'll get back into the swing of things. Probably. In the meantime, here's a healthy handful of photos to entertain, edify, and educate!
|Represent! My Crimson Tide has played (and beat) Virginia Tech, Texas A&M,|
Colorado State and Ole Miss. We're 4-0. Roll Tide!
|I flew to NJ (via Philadelphia Airport) to visit one of my sisters (Sister #3) ... not a |
bad way to spend a two-hour flight, right?!
|First stop in NJ -- Olde City Quilts. It did not disappoint!|
|Visited the lovely city of Princeton!|
|Found this darling mini-bundt pan at my sister's local Homegoods. |
This has been on my wish list for a while -- it was HALF the price! YAY!
|Ate well. The. entire. time. ;)|
|Then Sister #3 and I headed south to visit yet another sister. |
Early morning sunshine selfie. Waaaay early.
|Waaaaay south! Remember the Alamo! (We then traveled even|
*further* south to Corpus Christi!)
|We were greeted by Sister #4 and her oldest and youngest!|
|Meet darling Liesl . . . she is such a precious baby!|
|Meet my brother-in-law . . . quite the entertainer, non? |
And this was a quilt shop in Corpus Christi -- a lot of fun things there, too!
|Ferry boat ride from South Padre Island. Hello pelicans!|
|Flight back home . . . totally inspired to make a "travel" quilt!|
|Welcome home! My Todd is always so sweet!!|
|Free book that was waiting for me when I got home -- YAY!!|
|Not-so-free book that I got soon thereafter. |
(It's filled with all kinds of lovely tea-party things!)
|Put that mini-bundt pan to immediate good use.|
|Was given Ellie's high seal of approval. ;)|
|Realized Ellie's grown waaaay too much! Definitely not a baby any longer.|
|Leia, on the other hand, hasn't changed.|
|Sawyer, James and I went turtle hunting.|
|We actually found FOUR turtles that day! It was a terrapin record!|
|We also found some really, really cool mushrooms growing around the camp.|
|Seriously -- they both look like something you'd find in the|
coral reef, not the forest floor!
|Helped some dear friends set up the pavilion for their wedding at the camp.|
|Attended said wedding!|
|Purples and yellows abound in the camp right now --|
this is a favorite combination of mine!
|And days like this make it hard to stay inside. So I DON'T!|
