THIS AND THAT TODAY





I saw this photo on a site that had all different endeavours of people fighting the mighty Red River as it is flowing north into Manitoba. It is


http://www.boston.com/bigpicture/2009/03/redriverflooding.html there are so many photos of dispair yet hope as the sand bags are filled and the people fight on. North Dakota and Manitoba have experienced this many times and know the drill it would seem from the other photos...Have a look if you haven't seen these excellent photos.


My sweetie came back from Virginia, with a total of about 7 hours sleep since he had left on Thursday and returned Monday afternoon. We have been to races before, but this was his brother's first Nascar race so the two of them took a bus trip with 33 other guys to Martinsville.


He has been "catching up" on his sleep since returning. He also said that as usual all the people that follow Nascar must be the friendliest of people and his brother couldn't get over the way people were so "neighbourly" as he put it. Considering that the weather had been terrible since leaving, they arrived at the track on Sunday to the sky being blue and a perfect day for a race.


I, of course had the weekend to myself...wonderful, wonderful, is all one can say when the house is empty and I just did what I wanted to do, which was quilt... I did, finishing the Victorian quilt and piecing another. That one, the top is done and ready for finishing. I haven't decided on how to do the back yet and of course today is bridge day, so it's a bit of a write off as far as sewing goes.


It's April 1st, and no virus on the computers so it seems. I swear, sometimes it must be a quiet news day and someone says "virus" and away they all go to get updates on these pesky things.


Today, is a cloudy, expecting rain sort of day and a wee bit warmer than yesterday. It was a winter day yesterday, with the wind whipping around to make it seem even colder...I want warmth...


I found a great idea for making a quilted bowl. It's at Craftster Community or Geta's Quilting Studio. Unbelievable how clever some people are. She is one.
