There is a new resident...

in our driveway. Last night we replaced our daughter's totalled 1998 Cavalier with a 2004 Cavalier. She's in love with the car and we liked the price! We went to a place that brings cars in off of leases, sends about 95% off to auction and sells the nicest cars to the general public at wholesale prices. I wish we'd known about this place a few years ago! The cars on the lot were in great shape, the salesman was very helpful and friendly and when I sat down to talk to him, it turned out that he was my boss's husband! Small world! If you live in the NJ area and ever need a used car, I highly recommend going to see Walt at George Yelland, Inc.

Very little quilting has been going on, although over the weekend I got about half of my Underground Railroad quilt sewn together. I hope to get it finished some time this week because every time I open the windows in my sewing room, blocks blow off the design wall!

If you care to, please say some prayers for my youngest daughter. She's been sick since Saturday night and is totally exhausted. I had her to the doctor yesterday and he couldn't find anything specific, except for pain in her side, so he is doing a battery of tests, including one for mono, and a pelvic ultrasound to try to determine the cause of her pain. She's been practicing for her school play, The Music Man, and the performances are in a week and a half...she's missed practice every day this week. Thank you!

Sending prayers her way. Hope they find the cause and take care of it right away! Hope they check the appendix. I've been hearing a lot of weird appendix stories lately.

Just now having a chance to catch up on a bunch of the blogs I read. By now I hope your daughter has recovered from whatever ailed her and is back to singing and dancing her way through River City.
