Weekend Antics

Saturday morning the husband and I got up early and went to the Flint Farmer's Market, one of the better farmer's markets I've been to, I might add. (it has an indoor and outdoor market. Woo hoo!) While I was there I saw this t-shirt for sale and laughed my butt off. Afterwards we went to a local historical house museum to see a quilt show with quilt's entirely made by men. I was a little disappointed because a.) I didn't know it but apparently you had to buy bracelets and traipse all across town to see the rest of the quilts and b.) only one man made some quilts, the rest were husband and wife teams. To top it off, the theme was supposed to be "black, white and one other color" and I only saw two quilts that fit that description. It was neat how they displayed the quilts by actually putting them on the beds but now, looking back at the pictures, I see colors in the quilts that I had no idea were there when I saw them in person.
Here's an example-

I had no idea there was green in this quilt until I downloaded it into my computer. In person and in the dark historical home it looked black and white to everyone there.

I loved how this one looked like it fit right in at the historical house.

After the quilt show we headed to my in-laws house for my husband's nephews' birthday party. (Two birthday parties for the price of one.) It was fun, a lot of people were there and towards the end of the party we could hear music coming from the blues festival a few blocks away. That was a bonus.

After that party we headed to another party at my friend's house were she served carne asada (I have no idea how to spell that one) and Tequila Sunrises. (I do know how to spell that one.) We ended up playing Pictionary which turned a little pornographic by the end (O.K., it was me turning it pornographic) but all in all we had a great time. More updates to come.

Have you ever read "Everyday Use" by Alice Walker? I bet you'd like it. It's a short story and I imagine it's availible on-line.
