Go Redsox!!!!

It is amazing what sports fans will do to stay up with their teams. This morning my DH and I got up at 0600 to watch a taped copy of the Red Sox vs. Indians baseball championship game. It was a great game but it just isn't the same watching baseball with coffee and shredded wheat instead of beer and a hotdog...ah well, at least the Red Sox won!!!

We went on a long walk/ramble this weekend up in the Cotswold hills. Each time we do this I am amazed how beautiful it is in this part of England. I'm still a bit nervous walking through fields of cows and sheep (I'm not afraid of the sheep but I worry about scaring them!) The cow in the photos was such a prima-dona. She "posed" for all the silly Americans taking photos then followed us to the gate! The rest of the herd moved to the top of the hill when they heard us coming over the gate.

I got to play with my new camera. As usual I play with it first and then read the directions. I do the same thing with new software...I think it is how I learn best but it drives my DH batty! The flower and bee photo at the left uses a "flower" setting which is just that a tiny flower- now how hard it that to figure out without a book!!

Today I am going to play in my Halloween fabrics. I should clean house but I just don't feel like it! Maybe I will clean one room and then let myself play!

I also need to come up with something fun for my 200th post...I can't believe I have written that much. Watch this space for an anniversary give away...don't know what it will be!!

My camera has got a flower setting too - its logical isn't it!

I can't believe how everything still looks so spring like. First heavy frost here last night but still the grass needs cutting!

Have fun playing and did you watch the Antique Roadshow last night?

New cameras are fun to figure out. The book that came with our camera isn't much of a help. It is hard to understand and what information it does have isn't detailed enough to always help. Thanks for sharing the photos of the English countryside. It sounds like the cow enjoyed your company!

Wow, nice pictures with your camera! What kind did you get?! I love that cow! She is sooo pretty!

I do the same thing - do first and read directions later. It's the only way!

Enjoy the World Series with the Red Sox! I'm rooting for them.

No, somehow coffee and cereal are not the same as beer and hot dogs! But, hey, you do what you have to do. The bright quilt is lovely -- it may be a bit more complicated than you originally intended, but, it's just so joyful!

My boss went to the first game of the World Series last night and my nephew got a ticket after standing/sleeping/eating in line for 24 hours! He is a student at BU. We are pretty excited about the Sox here!! Go Sox!

lovely catching up with you- the bright more complicated quilt looks such fun...good luck with the Halloween playing- looking forward to seeing what you come up with.

Will you be watching a taped copy of Game 4? I'd rather watch the game in the morning then trying to stay awake to watch it? I am more a morning person and less a night owl. An 8:30 pm start time is way too late for me.
