TGIF Or even better, thank goodness it's over!

Busy week.  But I actually got lots done!

On Wednesday I mentioned that my TrueCut Sharpener worked well, but that the button on it that you push to make it go was loose.  And there was no way to tighten it.  So I called the company.
And today a mere 2 days later, I got my new sharpener delivered via UPS.  Now, that is FANTASTIC customer service! 
 See, that button is nice and snug!

Yesterday I went out for lunch with a good friend.  We ate at Palatiamos's in Benson.  I had a greek salad (LOVE LOVE LOVE those stuffed grape leaves!) and a sirloin steak (was craving meat) and a yummy triple chocolate cake for dessert.  I brought more than half my food home and it was dinner last night and breakfast this morning!
We stopped at Walmart and did some shopping.  I needed some bird food and dog food, you know, the usual.  But when I saw these beautiful strawberries, I could not resist.  I bought 2 - 3 pound boxes of them.  They are so sweet and so tasty!  I love strawberries and now I'll be eating them every day for a week!!  Yummy. 

My friend Glen, at Quilts and Dogs bought this really cool book.  And after looking at it online, I bought one as well.  It's all about being creative. 

I got a used copy via Amazon.  I ordered yesterday and it arrived today!
It gives you an idea every day for 365 days of something to do that is creative. 
I want to, of course, try to use sewing and quilting as often as possible.  But I will venture out and do things that aren't sewing and quilting as well!
For example:  On day is says "Make something with your breakfast before you eat it."  Now think on that!  Eggs and toast, or cereal or coffee and a biscotti, or even a grapefruit! 
Doesn't have to take long, and it doesn't have to be elaborate.  But it will be fun.

Won't you join Glen and myself and get creative? 

You can get the book at Amazon for less than 14$ new and from about a $1.50 used! 
I bought a used copy and it's in perfect shape.  I paid less than 10$.  :)
Another day the idea is this:  "Make a unique bookmark.   The author of the book made skulls. 
Check out Glen's blog for more details, she's said a lot about it! 

Well, at least think about joining us, even for a couple of days a week! 
My bed is yelling for me to come and sleep in it!  So I'm off to dreamland!  Have a great weekend!  God Bless, Anne

I am so excited about that 365 project. I can't wait to start!

So how long did your electric stay out? We are lucky, we live right off the transmission lines and a huge substation. We generally get power first after a hurricane!
