The birthday month is still in effect. My favorite lovely presents are a new tripod and a new camera bag. I am a lucky girl.
Internet connecting has been difficult making for frustrating writing. The weather settles over the lake and the connection doesn't stay connected. So now I am trying Blogpress. I am going to ramble a bit because I am experimenting.
I would like to be able to edit pictures and there is probably a way. All I know is that I am spoiled by all the tools available when I am online.
I got 4 quilts back from my quilter Lynn and will be sending one to her this week.
Some Dr. Seuss fabric found its way into my stash and a quilt for my grandson was created.
I read Lynn's blog Happier Than a Pig in Mud and we made a Pickle Pot. Not sure how to enter a link with program so just look in my sidebar and you will find her and a link to Miz Helen.
Well, we are off for a birthday breakfast and then just a relaxing day. I hope the rain stops as I would like to photograph the quilts outside.
I am joining Beverly at How Sweet the Sound for her weekly Pink Saturday! Please stop by and see the other pinks. Happy Pink Saturday!

We had a run around day yesterday. We went to Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. We then went out to lunch and ate far too much of course! So, a simple supper seemed in order.
I made a frittata of sorts. There is no precise recipe. I sliced Roma tomatoes and covered them scallions which I cut with scissors. I season this with sea salt and ground pepper. I used 5 eggs. I whisk the eggs and add a big glob of sour cream (we use fat-free) and a handful of grated cheese. I have used many mixtures. Last night was Mexican 4 cheese. Pour this mixture over tomatoes and bake for about 30 minutes at 350. The top should be slightly browned.
It was a rainy, cold and damp day. I couldn't get on the Internet with my computer which is very discouraging. The iPad is a godsend. I am using an app called Blogsy and it is allowing me write a post. However, I cannot correct a mistake after I have published. I need to study their directions a little more - could be user error!
Have a great day.
