Bad Day, Make Sorbet

It has been a couple of difficult days at work, with another in store for tomorrow.  After I got home I had a bout of dizziness and then nausea, but it seems to  have passed for now. I think it is sinus congestion.

I wanted something cold and fruity so I made some homemade sorbet. Here's how- 

Take one Edy's lime popsicle (without the stick), some frozen strawberries, and a splash of Sugar-free Cran-grape juice. Mix it all up with a Kitchen-Aid Blender Stick until it is the consistently of sorbet. Eat it up with a spoon.

Just a few minutes ago I let Conner outside to do his nightly business, and I saw this little house wren pop out of her nest to see what all the commotion was.  The birdhouse is attached to a garden rake and is on my porch. She sat very still while we were out in the yard and then even posed for this picture after I got back in the house and grabbed the camera.

I gave my friend Emmalee the baby quilt I made for the little one she and her husband are expecting. She loved it. That made me happy.

I finished off two quilts this weekend. The Improv Nest quilt got its binding finally. It is now resting comfortably on my bed.  I also finished the Bricks Oddysea quilt on my new Janome Threadbanger.  That machine did a nice job on the quilting and the new FMQ foot works great.
Ok, I think I will make it through the rest of the week. Maybe tomorrow night I will feel like sewing some.
