A Domestic, book-reading, quilt-making, diorama-cutting, pie-burning, Diva!

Ta-dah!  (this feat will not be repeated until apple seasons starts anew, in a year or two).

In the recent past I have been accused of being a book-a-holic  and today I feel it is time to prove that I have other qualities.  Though I am not cured of my reading addiction, I can now put a book down on occasion and do things like turn the oven on, cut paper, and sew through my fingers.

You know what, show and tell is fun.  Next time I’m going to show you my Spiderman action figure!

I hate making pie crust by the way…

“Yes. Yes, I did it. I killed Yvette [the crust]. I hated her [it], so much... it-it- the f - it -flam - flames. Flames, on the side of my face, breathing-breathl- heaving breaths. Heaving breath...”

--Mrs. White (the movie Clue)

Way to go! The breadth of your domestic skills impresses me -- especially the quilting, which was beautiful. And LOVED the Clue quote at the end.

"I am your singing telegram" BANG!
