Running Away to Quilt


I'm in a cycle again of getting to go on more quilting retreats with lots of great friends.  Lynn is pretty okay with me going for a few days at a time, a few times a ......quarter!  Sometimes I go two whole quarters without going at all, so it probably balances out to about every other month, I get away for a few days.

We have been married since 1974.  You learn a lot about a person in that amount of time, and a lot about yourself.  I've done some pretty funny things to Lynn.  Stories for another post.

This time, I thought I'd share.  One of my little idiosyncrasies (gotta love spell check!) is that I tend to leave my shoes where ever I took them off.  About two weeks ago he made a comment, I think he was actually addressing the cat, about how I seem to need shoes in every room.  Which is NOT TRUE!  But I thought just for fun, I would leave a pair of shoes, in every room, for him to find when he comes home from work today, and I'm long down the freeway.

Above is a pair of shoes in the living room.  He stops there everyday to put his keys and wallet away.
Here they are in the kitchen

Oh that is so funny - wonder what he will do with all those shoes when he finds them. LOL Happy retreat - or I might be late - as we just got back from WV and a wonderful visit with our newest amazing grandson.
