Wonderful time in Sacramento, CA

I just noticed this post was still sitting in my Drafts folder.  Sorry about that!  Graduation was June 6 so it's a LITTLE late LOL

I spent the past week in Sacramento, CA.  It's a beautiful city and the Municipal Auditorium (I think that's what it's called) is absolutely beautiful!  See the inside yourself!

I attended my granddaughter's high school graduation, which was the most fun graduation ceremony I have EVER attended. As their names were announced kids bowed, did the champ thing, a couple even slid in!  Does that mean they barely were able to march? It was a really good time.

Here's a couple photos of the capital.

 No, it really doesn't lean like the Tower of Pisa LOL But the photographer must have been holding the camera crooked!

This is a closer view of the artwork and statuary on the roof covering the portico.

I was standing by a circular rose garden that was all faded due to the lack of water.  There is a long street lined with palms leading straight to the capital building. I remember orange groves on either side next to the palm trees.  Sadly, buildings have replaced them.  Progress, I'm told.  Is it really?

We spent two days at various thrift stores where we bought way too much stuff we really don't NEED. But I got the cutest LITTLE red wagon. Not a radio flyer but it will look cute holding a potted plant.  A new tote that will NEVER be mistaken or lost!  It's from Hawaii and has VERY BRIGHT tropical fish.  For $1.39/lb I just couldn't let it go to the landfill!

And to make this post somewhat about quilting, I also found some red gingham fabric, and also a piece of green.  No, I don't know just what use I'll make of them at this point, but they should be good for SOMETHING.

Somewhat of a Lazy Day

I was having a perfectly fine lazy day until my younger daughter called.  She informed me she had already been up to the school track and done her two miles for the day.  And what was I doing productive today? She then challenged me to walk to the highway and back.  I'm sure I wouldn't have made it that far, let alone the two dogs! 
 One is a Mini Doxie   

(she was lagging behind on the way home as it was!).  So I did about 1.25 miles total, round trip.  Now can I be lazy? LOL

I don't know what i did to cause the blue underline so I can't make it go away!  I tried clicking on the underline button and also on the font color button.  Nada.

Lately the weather has been absolutely perfect.  A little warm late in the afternoon but otherwise very nice.  I'm lovin' it!

I haven't done much of anything with my sewing machine for awhile.  I've been so busy trying to keep up with the yard work.

I did go out and lounge in a chair yesterday and read some in a book and do a little embroidery. Jenny at Elefantz is posting a series of Bible verse embroidery, which, like all of her creations, I love.  My intention is to put them all together in a throw for my big wicker rocker.

I observe the Bible Sabbath (Saturday), so I call that my Sabbath Embroidery.  I refrain, as much as possible, from doing ordinary work and celebrate my relationship with God.  Doing the embroidery helps me really stop and think about the verse and its meaning.

OK, I really do need to go get productive at something other than the computer!!

You all have an awesome day!
