Today is Super Tuesday so let's get out there and vote! Personaly, I'm sad that Barney and Miss Beazley are only going to be at the White House for one more year. They are our nation's First Scotties, after all. Perhaps they'll do public appearance after they leave office.......
I'm going to attempt to spend the day getting ready for a quilt retreat. My friends and I have a quilt group called The Busy Bees. The name came as a memory to a friend who passed away from breast cancer, Bea. There are eleven of us and every November we go to a condo in Lake Tahoe for a retreat. Then in February we go for four days at a church conference center up in the foothills about an hour from where we live. The conference center has a home that they have turned into a place for retreats in addition to their large center. It's a cozy home with a large area where we can sew. This will be our sixth retreat at this facility and we absolutely love it. We'll arrive Friday and depart on Monday. Although our main purpose for going is quilting, we also spend time knitting, reading, watching movies (Fried Green Tomatoes and Calendar Girls are watched every year), shopping the local quilt stores and just plain relaxing. The secret best part is the center does all the cooking for us!! They drive up to the house at 6:30 just to get the coffee going, for heaven's sake. The meals are wonderful and by the time we leave we are happy and refreshed.
Ladies, do yourself a favor, grab some friends and go do something for yourself. You're worth it and you'll be a better wife/mom/friend for doing it!
