Fun Week

I haven't been sewing much this week, but I did get this Scrappy Asterisk block accomplished for our guild's Block Lotto. These would be cute for a baby or toddler quilt and are a great way to use up scraps.

My daughter and I have started watching the television series Lost on Netflix. I didn't think it would be my thing, but my daughter talked me into it. Now I'm way ahead of her and hooked. Yumi in Japan is watching it with her kid too. I'm trying to multitask and do other things while the episodes play, but you really have to pay attention and there are a lot of subtitles and flashbacks. Needless to say, ain't much getting done around here. College Boy says we're going to be mad at the final episode.

My mom brought me an herb garden for my birthday. I've had it a week and it's still alive. There are some interesting herb varieties in the planter. Culantro, rosemary, spicy basil, spicy thyme, and cilantro. I used some of the culantro and cilantro last night for pork carnitas.

Inspector Gadget found a goose decoy lost in the lake. He cleaned it up and put it in our pool. Freaks me out every time I look out there.

Bones isn't buying it either. He is a little apprehensive of it.

At least College Boy is enjoying it as a flotation device.

Surf and turf for dinner one night last week. Steak and crab cakes with red potatoes, salad and a tomato side dish. I love topping big slabs of summer tomatoes with bread crumbs and cheese and baking them. Picking crabs is no fun unless you're eating as you go, but we had leftover birthday crabs, so I picked them for crab cakes. There was a sauce for the steak, but it didn't make the picture.


  1. Love the asterick block. I think it will make a fun baby quilt. Love the pic of your son and the "floatation device".
