I don't have a lot of vices, but I'll admit that diet Coke is one of them (along with chocolate and fabric). We all got a good laugh when Susie walked into the shop this morning with a copy of the following story for each of us. You can replace "diet Coke" with your favorite cup of "Joe" or whatever it is that
Amanda was walking down the street when she was accosted by a particularly bedraggled and shabby looking homelss woman who asked Amanda for a couple of dollars for dinner. Amanda took out her billfod, extracted ten dollars...ad the asked, "If I give you this money, are you going to spend it on diet Coke instead of dinner?"
"No, I had to stop drinking that years ago", the homelss woman replied.
"Will you use it to go shopping instead of buying food?" Amanda asked.
"No, I don't waste time shopping", the homeless woman siad. "I need to spend all my time tyring to stay alive."
"Will you spend this on a hair stylist instead of food?" Amanda asked.
"Are you NUTS?!" replied the homeless woman. "I haven't had my hair done in 20 years!"
"That's just fine, " said Amanda, "I'm not only going to give you the money, I'm going to take you out for dinner with my hubby and myself tonight."
The homeless woman was astounded. "Won't your husband be furious with you for doing hta? I know I'm ragged, dirty, and I probably smell pretty disgusting."
Amanda replied, "That alright. It's important for Andy to see what a woman looks like after she's given up diet Coke, shopping and hair appointmenst."

Now I think that I'm going to work on a baby quilt using 1930's repro fabrics and a buzz saw pattern that I got a my first guild meeting.

Late Saturday night (eight minutes before midnight), Addison Grace entered the world!
Addy is my oldest brother's first grandchild; my niece's daughter. As a matter of fact, she's the first grandchild born to our family. We've all been anxiously awaiting her arrival and now she's finally here! She's even cuter in person than she is in the picture.
That's my brother in the picture. Doesn't he look proud?

Agatha Fry, she made a pie,
And Christopher John helped bake it.
Christopher John, he mowed the lawn,
And Agatha Fry helped rake it.
Zachary Zugg took out the rug,
And Jennifer Joy helped shake it.
And Jennifer Joy, she made a toy,
And Zachary Zugg helped break it.
And some kind of help
Is the kind of help
That helping’s all about.
And some kind of help
Is the kind of help
We all can do without.

Last Friday DH told me that he had made reservations at Daniels Summit Lodge for us to spend Sunday night and then go snowmobiling on Monday morning. The plan was that we would take our two youngest daughters and have a great time. A great time? In the snow? I didn't think so!!! But I put a smile on my face and packed some warm clothes and Sunday afternoon headed off to Daniels Summit.
Okay, this is the part where I have to admit that I really DID have a great time. DD2, my riding partner, told me before we got started that she had a "need for speed", and indeed she did! She had a great time driving the machine through the snow. John was even able to convince Jocelyn that she should take a turn driving and, once she got over her initial fear, she wouldn't let dad take control again.
It's good for us to step out of our comfort zones every now and again. Last weekend we created memories that can never be taken from us. I'll never forget the 360 degree view of the beautiful snow covered mountains and valleys as we sat on top of the world. Or the giggles and squeals as sisters raced to see who could go fastest. Yes, I had a great time...and I didn't even freeze to death!
