Spring Is Here

Spring is here! The temp has risen to above freezing and I was able to be outside without a heavy coat! I'm still a little disappointed at the lack of snow this winter, but it is what it is.

DH made it home from Germany on Thursday. But we learned that another international trip is in the works. We already knew he is going to Shanghai from April 15 - 20. He will also be going to Dubai April 26 - May 1. Lots and lots of travel for him. Lots and lots of frequent flyer miles and hotel points for our vacations.

I did get one quilty project done this week. I made this mini quilter's wallet for Evelyn. It's on its way to her. So Evelyn if you're reading this entry you know what you are getting.



DH took me to a hotel for the night and then we went shopping today. We don't go shopping very often, but when we do it's always fun. Today he bought me a new sweater and dressy t-shirts. We went into a kitchen store and found Maker's Mark Bourbon Flavored Gourmet Sauce. I am not a Maker's Mark drinker, but a London broil marinated in this sauce is incredible. He also had to buy a new iPod because he left his in Berlin and the hotel there can't find it. Mmmmm . . . sounds like a case of sticky fingers to me.

We also made reservations for our anniversary weekend in July. The hotel we stayed at is at the minor league ball park in Manchester, NH. No kidding. Here are pictures of the hotel. On our anniversary weekend the New Hampshire Fisher Cats are playing the Portland Sea Dogs. The Sea Dogs are one of the Red Sox minor league teams. We can watch the game from our room, sit at the restaurant deck or pay a few dollars for tickets to sit in the stadium. I'm excited and I still have to wait four months.

That's all the news for now. Thanks to everyone who stops by and leaves comments. I may not reply to all the comments, but I do appreciate every comment.

Is there a pattern for the quilters wallet? Hope you both enjoy his many travel opportunities. My son visited Dubai this past fall- fascinating place, hope your DH enjoys it.

I long to live near a minor league baseball team - they seem to play for the love of the game. Sounds like a fun anniversary weekend.

Colorful fabrics in the wallet! I like it! The hotel sounds very interesting and quite appropriate for a baseball fan. Baseball on a summer afternoon is great fun! Enjoy!!

Cute Wallet! Glad you had a great weekend.

I think spring may be coming to Chicagoland too. It is nice again today, I went outside without a jacket.

Nice wallet - hope you get your room back soon.

I was just thinking does he happen to slip a small piece of fabric in his suitcase? It would be really neat to have fabric from different tips he took. I like the wallet and the colors you choose. We have had almost no snow and I am glad!

Haven't visited with you for a while. I like the pink fabric at the top of your blog. Wish I could figure out how to change my heading.....But I'll be happy to bask in the glory of others that UNDERSTAND how to do these things!
