Summer in March

What a glorious day. Hi 70s, windows open in the house, pussy willows budding out... it just keeps getting better and better.

This morning AJ and I went to the DePere Antique Show. We go every year, enjoy seeing all the vendors' booths, and seldom buy anything. This year was different. I walked into a booth and there it sat. A perfectly maintained 1948 Featherweight Singer sewing machine. Quilters will understand my excitement. This one was complete - right down to the instruction manual. A little bickering back and forth, and it was mine. As soon as it is set up, I will post a picture. Can't wait to give it a good try out.

When we got home it was so beautiful, that we stopped and picked up Jessie (our dog) and headed up to Door County. One of Jessie's favorite things is chasing a ball into the bay, bringing it back, swimming, etc. We usually go to Murphy Park for that, so that's where we went. (That black spot in the water is Jessie.) She had a great time. Then we stopped at our favorite Chinese restaurant in Sturgeon Bay on our way home. Tonight I cranked out another sock on my Erl. All in all, a super day.!
