Fun to Come

I don't have very much to talk about tonight.  After coming home from the office tonight, I worked on prepping the applique for the next Comfort & Joy section, but I can't show it to you yet because the group will do the "big reveal" in a couple days.  I'm sure I won't have it done by then, but I can show you what I DO have, so I'll hold off for now.

Soccer Son and Mrs. Soccer are back in town after taking a couple days to relax and enjoy newly wedded bliss at Lake Tahoe, where they had a small house with lake views.  In fact, Soccer Son told me that they could watch the sun rise and set and all the changes that take place on the lake throughout an autumn day from their bedroom.  When I suggested it sounded as if they never got out of bed, he laughed and said no, they had the same views from the kitchen and living room; he just meant to say that probably the only time he's enjoyed being up early enough to watch the sun rise was when he could watch it from bed.  I think he makes a good point!  Hubby and I are taking them out to dinner tomorrow night, so we'll probably hear more about their thoughts on the wedding and their short "honeymoon" trip.

If you've been reading my blog for awhile, you'll probably remember that every year, usually in the fall, my firm has a "mystery event."  In other words, we're told we're doing something on a particular Saturday, but we don't find out what we're doing until just before--either on the day before (Friday) or the day of.  On that Friday, we're given T-Shirts that usually have some kind of clues on them.  So this year, the mystery event is scheduled for this coming Saturday.  So far, we've heard nothing that would give anyone a clue to what we're doing, except I know we're meeting at the office at 9 a.m., a bus ride was mentioned, and we're supposed to get back around dinner time, I think--if I remember correctly.  It's still pretty hot here in the afternoon with temperatures in the mid-90s, so whatever we do, I'm sure we'll be hot, sweaty, and tired out by the end of the day.  But I'm equally sure that whatever it is, we'll have fun doing it.  Last year we made beer, drank beer, had appetizers for lunch, and later had an Oktoberfest dinner and polka dancing lessons.

You see why I don't expect to have finished the Comfort & Joy section by the time we're supposed to post them on Saturday?  And then I wonder why I'm falling behind on the block of the month projects!  But, of course, I wouldn't have it any other way.  As I've said before, there's just not enough play time, is there?!

I'm a big fan of quilting mysteries so you can imagine how eager I am to hear about your mystery event! Your company must be fun to work for!
