Ocean Fishing...

It was a wonderful day. Spent it with good friends, wonderful weather, (if I was dressed for it). On the ocean...









Saturday it was almost 90 degrees in Newport Beach, so on Sunday I dressed for 90. Not the case... Sun never popped out till almost 10:00. The further we went out the worse the fog got and colder... OH MY GOODNESS!
Fishing... Well... Let me just say... NEVER do the "groupon" special on the Internet. You are herded on like cattle, elbow to elbow and when the Captain says, "drop it", go, Go, GO! All 100 lines go in the water and everyone is trying to catch that 1 fish, and when someone does... 10 other lines get tangled in along with that one. Sheesh. I did it about 3 times and I was over it. I brought my line in, went upstairs, found my spot in the sun and watched everyone else do the madness. Yes, I people watched.
It was a good time to sit and think and be thankful for everything I had!
Next time.... I will pay the extra money and charter a boat with only 8-10 people and have a more wonderful time than ever expected!
We did though, bring some fish home. Maybe enough to make fish tacos.
Some of those ocean fish.... Are AMAZINGLY beautiful.

gotta love Kim Diehl....

Finished this one this last week and delivered it to the quilters yesterday. Actually I took 2 to her! Stopped at a quilt show in San Diego also. North County Quilters had a show going on in San Marcos. Oh my goodness... What a tiny little thing it was. Then of course I had to stop in Sewing Machines Plus... Hhmmmmm, getting closer to getting a machine. Thought I would give ol' Betsy one more try on something small. Started off good, then I spent 2 hrs un-ripping everything. Not sure if it was the appliqué that was throwing it off or all the seams. But I pressed and pressed and it was pretty darn flat so I just don't know.

Punkins ...

There was a class at Country Loft that I missed where they made these adorable punkins. I just had to have the pattern so I ordered it. I can't wait till I get it. I just love these things!

Pomegranates......

I de-seeded 14 pomegranates today in a matter of like 10 minutes...
Fresh fruit for my morning smoothies and 5 containers in freezer.. 1 per week. I'm set!






I tried juicing them, but it was wasting more than the juice being made.
