First Day of Vacation

I received one of my books in the mail today but not the
other. Perhaps Monday. I felt sleepy at lunchtime and
went to take a nap but I started thinking about the chores
I needed to do so I got up and did them. Now it's 3 p.m.,
the pie and brownies are cooling, the chicken is in the
oven, the potatoes peeled, and the table set. I've put the
last load of laundry in the dryer and now maybe I'll go
take that nap.
I read a bit, but didn't sleep and got up at 4:30 p.m to
finish up dinner. Gavin is going to the movies with Dan
tonight and the rest of us are going to spend a quiet
evening at home. I like to work at finishing my American
Spirit quilt top. It's done except for the borders.
You can see this pattern at:

I've also almost finished Sandy Gervais' pattern #159, Old
Glory and maybe I'll work on that one too.
