resident turkey

ok, maybe I'm the only one who thinks this is cool, but this turkey has apparently added our birdfeeder as a stop on her feeding territory. She comes through by herself every other day or so, spends an hour pecking at the seed the sloppy chickadees have dropped on the ground, then silently moves on. Brings a smile to my face each time I see her.

Turning Twenty quilt

I started an online quliting class a couple of weekes ago....from my favorite quilt shop, Alewives, in Nobleboro Maine. It is just far enough away to make weekly classes tough, but doable. Anyway, Rhea decided to go online for this Turning Twenty class...and it has worked out perfectly. I'm using mostly pinks and lime greens, with some white and orange thrown in.

I'll update as I get further along in the quilt but its REALLY easy so far....which means I've probably screwed up already! Ha!

I had a FANTASTIC birthday lunch with my good friends, Karen & Catherine, last week. Little Tokyo was unbelievable...they even served us a birthday dessert dumpling (strawberry ice cream inside dumpling..yum!) with a huge firecracker :-)yum....sushi was SO yummy!
Finally tried edamame ....delicious!
Catherine & I...we missed Karen's pic because she was taking all of the photos!

Then, next door to Gelato Fiasco....I had lemon, strawberry, orange....heavenly.
They also gave me a beautiful piece of art that they collaborated on....I'll post pic soon. Thanks for a great day girls!!!!
