Sunrise, Sunset from ... Cat Patches

There was a pretty sunrise this morning. I love the sunrises and sunsets in Nevada. There are pretty sun events everywhere, I guess, but it seems the ones in Nevada are more predictably pretty. I watched this morning's for quite a while and took a bunch of pictures. I was hoping to capture just the moment when it peeked over the mountains, but I got bored after a while. This was the best of the pictures I took this morning.

Happy Things from Cat Patches

We had a "chill" day planned for ourselves. I had a yen to bake something. While packing up canned goods before leaving on our trip, somehow a jar of apple pie filling and one of cherry pie filling fell into the box with the rest of the pasta sauce and applesauce. And, what can I say? I was in the mood for a Dutch apple pie. So I started my morning by baking a pie. I was using Pillsbury pie crust and jarred apple pie filling, so this is a pretty quick job. Plop it in, dump it in, cover ...

Chocolates and a Quilt Shop from ... Cat Patches

Could there be a better day than one that includes a chocolate factory and a quilt shop??? Maybe if we'd won the lottery. I've heard that your chances of winning the lottery are greatly increased if you actually play. I might have to try that sometime. 

After all that talk yesterday about possibly hiking or biking, we ended up driving to the places we wanted to go. It's important not to get out ahead of yourself, you know. Before we left, I spent some time on the fifth of the blackwork baskets, filling my hoop.

Delhi, California from ... Cat Patches

Welcome to 2022, my friends! I wasn't sure I was going to be able to get online this morning. I started this post yesterday evening, and wasn't able to upload any pictures. This morning, all the yahoos (and their automatic weapons fired off at midnight) are still in bed, and so they aren't hogging all the bandwidth. Not that I would ever hog bandwidth...just sayin'. And this gives me an opportunity to say our internet access could get a little dicey over the next week or so. Tomorrow we'll be heading to a small park ...

Quilt Shop: Lavender Rose Fabrics & Retreats; Eureka, California from ... Cat Patches

Good morning, my friends. How cold is it where you are? 

When I'm finished with the laptop computer each morning, whatever I'm using it for, I put it in sleep mode and then set it on the floor, leaning against the exterior wall of the RV. When I pick it up, it feels as if it's been sitting on ice. Maybe I need to make a little quilt for it, to keep it warm you know. Certainly it must be against the law for a quilter's inanimate objects to go uncovered, wouldn't you think?

A Rose is a Rose is a Rose from Cat Patches

When Mike and I got married, I wore a perfume called "A Rose is a Rose is a Rose." I'm not much for perfume, but you know...getting married called for something a little bit special. The perfume was nothing special. I bought it at a department store counter, and it was inexpensive. It really did smell like roses though, and that was the point. And that story has nothing to do with yesterday's sewing, but you know...there's no filter on my tangential brain.

Turkey Day! from Cat Patches

 


Good turkey morning, my friends! It might just be my favorite day of the year, mainly because I get to see my kiddos. Erik and Mae are hosting dinner this year, and so we'll be meeting them and Matthew at their place later this afternoon. As you might guess, I spent the day in the kitchen yesterday. The only thing picture worthy was this Bourbon Pumpkin Tart with Walnut Streusel. I can't remember the issue of Fine Cooking where I saw it published the first time, but it's been a standby for many, many years.

A Kitty Finish from Cat Patches

After considering my lack of sewing mojo in yesterday's post, it seemed like a good day to finish something. Part of my sewing malaise has to do with indecision. With several quilts nearing a finish and needing quilting, I was having a hard time deciding what to work on next. When I tackled yesterday's projects, I decided a finish was just what the sewing doctor ordered. Since I was still waiting for buttons on the Get Well Kitty project, it seemed the best choice was to work on the Kitty Cat Alphabet. It was already sandwiched, and so ...

Kendall Mountain from Cat Patches

Good early morning, my friends. When you travel with cats, they are kind enough to make sure you're always awake to see the sunrise. When the sun rose yesterday morning, this is what I could see from our window. It rained all night, but then cleared up for a cloudy and chilly day. We saw some sun breaks, but it never really warmed up very much. The forecast would have us believe that the rest of our time here will be sunnier, and presumably warmer.

 
Our first ride was to the top of Kendall Mountain, which is just behind ...

Spacy Smitty from ... Cat Patches

Smitty had the worst day ever yesterday. He had his teeth cleaned. Admittedly he now has a dazzling smile, but he was pretty well lost in space when he came home and well into the night. I'm not sure the poor guy is right in his head yet this morning, although he is acting a little more like himself. When we got him home, he sat by the door gazing out, possibly seeing things the rest of us couldn't see.


He's no worse for wear, except for a little shaved spot on his right leg where an ...
