Mmmmmm. Chocolate.

Yesterday we had rain but no snow thank goodness.  Seems we moved just south enough.  :-)  

Today is an absolutely gorgeous day, though still quite chilly.
Saturday was definitely a stay-at-home-and-get-stuff-done day.  Even though I broke down and pushed the heat up a bit I just couldn't get warm!  So I dug out my Wristies to wear while sewing.

The Tramp spent quite a bit of time out in the cold garage messing with computers and parts and deciding which pieces to list on craigslist.   He keeps our servers, routers and what-have-you out there and the chest freezer makes a convenient work table....until you want to make lunch and need to get in it of course.

We had hamburgers to warm us up at lunchtime....which Charlie took full advantage of.

Some cupboard love from the dogs.  Seems it's been noticed I have food in my hand as well as the camera.  I assure you....I'm fully aware of my role in this household. 

Charlie was especially destructive playful yesterday and I of course spent quite a bit of time retrieving his toys.  He has me fully trained you know.   

Late in the afternoon the sky turned blue and we even had a few breaks of sun.  Yay!

This quilt is a rush order. I guess you can figure out the young man's profession without too much trouble.  I believe his family wants to give it to him before his next overseas tour of duty.

Yesterday, while Charlie was helping himself to my lunch, I was browsing cookbooks.  This morning I made gluten-free oatmeal cookies for The Tramp.

A gluten-free citrus pudding cake to take down to Mom and Dad's for Sunday dinner.

And to satisfy my cravings, some gluten-free brownies.  Yummy!  Hard to tell they aren't the gluten-full version.  Good old chocolate comes through again!  :-)

That is a great looking quilt, Katie, I'm sure the customers will be thrilled with it. You have been very busy cooking too, there is nothing as nice as the smell of home bakingis there?

Mmmm, I thought I smelled someone baking yesterday. I did a bit of baking too. It was a perfect day for it. I like the Army quilt.

I love those hot pink adirondack chairs that you have in the garden. They have such a great pop to them.

Evidently I haven't been keeping up with my blog reading recently. Congratulations on the ribbons for your wonderful quilt.

And, wow, you've been making those t shirt quilts like crazy recently.

Lion? You upgraded to Lion. I just upgraded to the one before -- don't really want to do more just yet. And, I got an old iPhone recently so like having it. What I'm trying to do is con a couple of things from my cutting edge techie brother... say a new to me Kindle, iPhone... hey, are they done with the ipad?? I don't need the newest and latest. Heck my Kindle is only 3 years old and it's had two or three newer ones out.
Happy quilting and baking....
