The sad thing about Saturday nights is that it means the weekend's half over. But the weekend's been really nice so far! This morning, I began by sleeping in and then making orange cinnamon pancakes--recipe courtesy of Kelly Ann who mentioned in a comment last weekend that she was going to make some. I hope she won't mind me telling you, but all you need to do is add grated orange peel from one orange and a teaspoon of cinnamon to your regular pancake mix. I also substituted the juice from the squeezed orange for some of the liquid in my pancake recipe. Yum!
I wanted to show you the If the Hat Fits quilt I made from the Frightfully Crazy book from Buggy Barn. I finally got it all done Friday night and hung this a.m.
And a couple of close ups so you can see the quilting--
Soccer Son and his lovely wife-to-be-someday came over tonight--I invited him to come cook us dinner. Having a kid who can cook pretty well is a good thing to have. He'd mentioned a week or two ago that carne asada tacos are a real treat, so when I stopped at Trader Joe's earlier this week, I bought one of their marinaded carne asada bags o'beef and brought it home and invited him to cook it. While he BBQ'd the meat and fried the taco shells, I prepped all the other taco ingredients and then we sat down on the patio for our feast. Yep, he was right--they really are a treat!
While we were having dinner outdoors, it started to sprinkle--lightly and not for long, but just enough to tell us fall really IS here. Funny that just last weekend, we were still running the air conditioning because it was around 100 degrees outside!
Oh, and look what came in the mail!
I finally opened the Amazon box tonight and promptly dropped the book right on my foot. Now I'm pretty sure the pain I experienced is nothing compared to all the horrible things that have happened to Claire over the years and are surely going to keep happening to her, but it did hurt a bit. No, I'm not going to dive into the book just yet--I'm in the mood for something a little lighter (figuratively and literally) so I think I'll hold off for now, but it's nice to know it's here when I want it. If you haven't read the Outlander series . . . well, I just don't know what to say except run right down to the bookstore and buy the first book--Outlander.
Now, it's on to the rest of the weekend . . . .
