Just the Staycation We Needed

We did a "staycation" for Memorial Day Weekend. We always do this because everywhere on this kickoff-to-summer weekend is crowded. We always wish we'd planned a camping trip, but the campsites we favor are booked really early. My husband was really happy that the lawnmower was broken so he could delay his only weekend chore.

Destructive tornadoes struck uncomfortably close to my cousin and his family out in rural Iowa. Thankfully they are okay, but the storm was frightening for them.

This was the weekend scene at our house:

Looks like a great weekend.
I'm asking the same question too, is that one of your quilts? It's lovely. :)

Thanks for noticing the quilt! I made it last spring, but it was only this spring that I sent it out for quilting so that we could have usuable blanket out of it:
