Tuesday Time-Out...

So far it's been a productive week around here.  The kids are back to school and we're slowly getting back into routine since Spring Break.  Yesterday I spent the whole day cleaning and doing laundry.  There's so much more cleaning and sorting to be done, but there will always be another Monday!  Today Kim and I changed up our Tuesday Time-Out routine a little.  Kim's girls are on their second week of Spring Break so Isaac and I headed over there this morning.  I made a quick trip across the border to pick up a parcel, then a quick stop at Timmy's for coffees, then off to Kim's.  I didn't have much time to sew as I needed to do Kindergarten pick up, but hey, a few stitches were accomplished, coffees were consumed, and conversation coincided!  On my way to pick up Abby from school my cell phone was ringing away.  Isaac had it in the back seat with him and to my surprise he not only managed to answer it, but put it on speaker phone as well!  Kim was calling to tell me that I'd left my purse at her house....oh bother.  With the price of gas being through the roof, I was a little less than thrilled at my forgetfulness!  So, back we went, picked up the purse and headed home.  In the couple of hours I had before the next school pick up, I was able to lay out my now completed pinwheel blocks and try to get a layout picked so I can complete my quilt.  Here's a look at where I'm at with it....hope your Tuesday's going well!
