I'm dog sitting for the in-laws this week and with four dogs here, the
fur tumbleweeds have started already. I decided to schlep the Roomba
over to try and keep up with the cleaning; I hate having to clean up
in a hurry right before they get back. Toby is bark bark barking like
crazy at the vacuum...and my dogs (for once in their lives) are
sitting here calm as anything, like "what? What's the big deal? It's
just Roomba."

Two more down - post-election day edition!

I finally finished up the little bit of hand sewing I had to do for the last of this summer's baby quilts, and made it to the post office during business hours to send a package internationally. Violet and Avi, along with their mom, are some of my imaginary friends inside the computer. I came home this evening to read the best message board post ever:

"Yesterday I woke up to a world with President-elect Obama in it. And then I went to the post office to pick up a mysterious package and there were the two most beautiful quilts in it. Completely unexpected (I didn't even know you guys were over here doing this!) and so wonderful. 2008 was a crazy year, we finally got pregnant, moved to the US (and back) and watched this most incredible election for our friends in the south. I think these things will now always be connected for me in the most wonderful way, completely serendipitous that they arrived the morning after the best election ever.

I'm floored by your generosity. literally floored..."

I think she likes 'em ;)
