Sunny Sunday

It was sunny and bright, today, after yesterday's rain and clouds.  It was a little cool, but, not cold. 

I went to the fabric store, again, to buy some fabric for the baby girl quilt:

Pink Quilt Fabric

I looked through the fabric I had in my stash, last night, and picked out a few pieces.  But, I needed a solid pink for the border/binding, and another pink print for some of the patches, although my daughter chided me about subscribing to the "pink for a girl" stereotype.  Oh, well, what can I say?  The solid pink broadcloth was not on sale and was priced $4.99/yard, but, I had a coupon for 50% one regular priced item and I bought 1 1/2 yards of the pink solid, for $3.75, using that coupon.  The butterfly print fabric was regularly priced at $8.99, on sale for 60% off, which brought the price down to $3.59/yard.  I bought half a yard of it for $1.80.  My total, with sales tax (9.5%), came to $6.06.  I haven't quite decided on the quilt pattern, yet, so I didn't cut out the fabric, yet. 

After I came home, I took a few photos for the Summer Photo Scavenger Hunt, as it ends tomorrow and I still needed a few photos! 

Prompt #16 was an out of season treat being enjoyed, but I wasn't able to find something suitable for it.  So, I will go with Alternate B: Fresh local produce.  You can't get any fresher or more local than what's growing in my garden!




Feijoa (Pineapple Guava)

 I picked a couple of the feijoa (they are just starting to get ripe) and cut them to eat.  The fruit are quite small - I kept a teaspoon for comparison.  I scoop out the white flesh to eat it; I don't eat the rind.

Prompt #17 on the Scavenger Hunt is a sail.  It's another prompt I've struggled with, so, today, I took this photo of a water dispenser that looks a little like a Dutch windmill, although the sails of the windmill don't really move and the sign says, "Water Mill"!   It is located in a parking lot, a couple of blocks from my house.

"Windmill" Water Dispenser
Today, I am grateful for:
- The sunny day
- Sales and coupons at the fabric store
- Fresh local produce from my garden
- Phone calls from family and friends
- Chatting with my daughter

I haven't been posting my daily to do lists, lately, but I need to start doing so, as it keeps me accountable!

Monday's To Do List:
- Go to Auto Club/Pay car insurance (I like to go and pay in person, because I pay the entire amount and, this way, I can get the receipt, at once).
- Return the library books that are due
- Give Dancer his flea meds
- Pay the other bills
- Clean out the fridge
- Take the trash cans to the curb
- Water the indoor plants

How was your Sunday?  What are your plans for Monday? 


  1. It's still a sail whether it moves or not ... great find. I love the pomegranate photo as well. We're a day ahead of you so I have to get my final selection posted today. I think I managed to find them all this time. The winter hunt starts in December 😀

    1. Thank you, Eileen. I'm looking forward to the winter hunt!

  2. I think you have some great finds for the 2019 SPSH. Thanks for joining in.

    1. Thank you for organizing it! I had fun taking part in it. :)

  3. Great photos! Can't wait to see the baby girl quilt now!
    We went for a walk by the river yesterday and met a couple from another town an hour away and they were amazed at the beauty of our beach. The same river runs through their town upriver from us, but I seem to remember that it is narrower there and steep sided. We are very fortunate with our stretch.
    I walked round to see my friend this afternoon and showed her and her hubby (who has dementia) some photos and videos on the laptop, which they enjoyed.

    1. Thank you, Bushlady. I'll post pictures of the quilt when I sew it. :)

      That's nice that you were able to go for a walk, yesterday, and enjoy your section of the river and beach with the visiting couple. :) I'm sure your friend and her husband enjoyed seeing your photos and videos. Very kind of you to share them.
