Road Trip!

We decided to take a long weekend trip to Melborne, Florida, to see our son.  It's so nice to be able to drive to visit, rather than rely on air travel.  Yes, it's a lot of time in the car, but we don't mind...we can do our own thing, stop when we want, etc, etc.  :)  

We had a great visit, seeing his new house and even helping him with a few projects on his "to-do" list.  In between trips to Home Depot , we did stop at one of the beaches for a little stroll.  The water was sooo warm.  There weren't many people...I think it was too HOT HOT HOT!

It was a great visit and I hope we'll have many more opportunities to visit while we're both here on the east coast...

Of course I must show you his kitty cats...this is Coconut.  She's a feisty, playful little thing.  She's super lean, and all muscle!

This is Atria, his girlfriend's cat.  She's super shy, but started warming up to us.  She was never far away, but she just didn't want you to get too close.  I was able to pet her a few times.  

Another thing road trips are good for...getting caught up on neglected projects.  I'm so excited to be caught up with Buttermilk Basin's Block of the Month.  I love these little blocks and they are so quick to stitch up, I don't know why I procrastinated.  I wonder what September's block will be?  I'm thinking something with an apple...

It's always nice to be home again after a road trip.  Hope you all enjoyed a fun, relaxing weekend!

Happy Quilting!


  1. Beautiful beach!
    That is nice not to have to fly to visit kids. Hope that is the case someday for my oldest daughter. : )
    Great job on your BB mystery blocks. I am so curious to see how she is going to set these, since she is only posting 11 of them.

  2. Sounds like you had a good time! Such pretty kitties!


Love hearing from my blog friends! I had to disable "Anonymous" comments though. Thanks for stopping by!!
