Weekend at Home

We were tempted to go to our mountain place this past weekend, especially with temperatures here in the nineties. But Charlie had to work all day Friday, and we are going up for the long Fourth of July weekend. So, we had a very pleasant weekend at home. We went to see the new Star Trek movie on Friday- very enjoyable although those time-space continuum movies always confuse me. At one point, young Spock was actually in the same place and having a conversation with his older self (Leonard Nimoy looking ancient.) My husband was a huge fan of the original Star Trek TV series, and we have seen every episode many times.

I got some more quilt piecing done, with two tops put together and another cut out. These are all children's quilts with simple squares or Yellow Brick Road blocks.

We dedicated most of our evenings to porch sitting. That activity was rewarded last night with a spectacular sunset. Here are some pictures from our front porch, which sits way back from the street.

A glass of Grand Marnier reflects the colors of the sky.

Our house is bright white, but the setting sun gave it a pink glow.

It was a good weekend. I hope yours was, too!
