Old Fashioned Thunder Storm

We just had an old fashioned thunderstorm! The wind shifted and even though I was having trouble with allergies - EVERYTHING is in bloom - our windows were open. So I padded around closing them. We had left one livingroom window open - protected by a 4 ft porch - but I had a feeling and YEP - damp carpet! So, got my second wind and here I am.

Less than a week left at work ... this has been my favorite of all jobs and I've worked many - since I was 16!. It's hard to leave a job you love and friends at work. We even have a small but determined quilt group that meets on Thursdays at lunch. Hope they keep going without me.

Scrap Happens met last night and it had been awhile since all 9 members were together. Four went to Paducah this year and the rest of us got to live vicariously thru their show and tell. If we all love the same fabrics - is that a bad thing???

This weekend a friend and I are going to "Quilters - the muscial" on opening night. I saw a production of it many years ago at the Temple Theatre at UNL. And I'm looking forward to seeing it again with a friend. We're going to Crabby Billy's for seafood chowder and maybe we'll split a sandwich with it - should be a fun night. For some odd reason our DHs weren't upset about missing this!

Quilters-The Musical.....that sounds like fun. Please let us know how it went. I've just seen Menapause the Musical and laughed so hard my stomach ached for days.
