Rally, Sickness, Phones, and Finishes

It has been quite a week! The scooter rally went well, and just when my part was done, I came down with the sickness everyone else in the house had. Fever, stomach issues, just generally nasty. That really threw my whole week off, but I did manage to get six baby quilts bound, so I'm up to seven finishes for the year. The pic above shows five of the six finished quilts.

It was time to replace our cell phones, and I ended up upgrading to my first smart phone. I got the iPhone 4S. I took the above pic with my phone, and it's obvious I need a few lessons on how to take good phone pics. I'm still getting familiar with the phone, and honestly, I'm not sure I'll ever figure out all it can do.

DS the Elder, DDIL, and Miss E flew in from Texas today, and tonight my kids are at the movies while the 3 grandkids are snug in their beds and DH and I are keeping an ear out for any distress. They are only staying a couple days, so we will be busy showing DDIL around, as it's her first trip to AZ.

Tomorrow night we're all going to the Gaslight Theatre, a great local melodrama live theater where you cheer for the good guys and boo the bad guys. The show is The Three Musketeers, and it should be good fun.

Saturday I'll be cooking all day for a big dinner so everyone can meet the newest additions to the family. I have no idea how many people will show up, I've had several regrets already. Graduations and such have people pretty busy this month. I'm sure everyone here will have fun, and if I have tons of food left, I'll be especially glad I just cooked a turkey and made room in the freezer!

Next week perhaps things will calm down a bit and I can get back to quilting spree.

Sorry you weren't feeling well. Super glad to hear you will have a nice family gathering - and so close to Mother's Day....nothing fills my heart more than being surrounded by family...
