Under the heater/air conditioner.
On the valance over the curtain.
No, I did not ask for another room. The same maids clean all of the Courtyard rooms. I knew the hotel wouldn't move us to the Tower. Friends had found fault with their Tower room and the hotel offered to move them.....to the Courtyard.
We arrived back home around 9 pm Monday evening. Dead tired. It's been nearly 3 days and I'm still draggin' my wagon. Today I got the craving for some quinoa salad. I love the stuff from Costco but it is rather pricey. I decided to try to make my own. The toughest part was finding the quinoa. I had to visit Marlene's. The salad turned out delicious.
I am back on my health kick, again, and am going to drag the husbeast along. I am mentioning it here so I'll have witnesses and be forced to stick with it. I am getting way too fat for my comfort. It would be nice to be able to fit into one of my dresses for the Pipe Club Dinner in January.
I've been doing a little wheeling & dealing since my return. I had found this OOP vintage Raggedy Ann sewing pattern at a thrift shop for $.59.
It is now on its way to Australia for $25 plus postage. I also traded a pound of henna for vintage fabric.
1 3/4 yards of this lovely Chinese print.
3 yards of this knit.
It's 60" wide with a border down one side.
And 2 yards of this canvas with a Pennsylvania Dutch feel.
I don't know what I'll make with it but I like it better than that henna. Payday I'll order up some better quality henna from Mehandi.com.
