Whew! Those three days of work this week seemed long when I was looking forward to today and the next couple of days. First I'm going to run around the house picking up the stuff I didn't pick up last night, pack clothes and crafts, and dose the cats with hairball medicine. Yes, here at Chez Purling Oaks, what is usually called Spring by most folks is called hairball season. One of these years, I'm going to save the combings and spin myself enough yarn for a blanket. Each time I comb Blue there's enough fur for new kitten. Really. Well, not that we need another cat around here.
Then, I'm off to get a massage and see if Gabrielle can convince my back muscles to relax. I feel as if my left shoulder is up to my ear. After whatever miracles that can happen on the massage table happen, I'm off to Chicago to meet my blogless friend, Charlynn, for the Quilt Festival. Whoop! The weather should be very nice for driving and we're planning on finding a deep dish pizza one night, for sure. There will be plenty of shopping opportunities and it is always inspiring to view the quilts and other creations presented at the Festival.
I just saw a bluebird sitting on top of the bird feeder in the back yard. That's an unusual sight since they are bug eaters. Usually I see them flitting around in the front field, but at afar, so this closer view was nice. ETA: What is even more interesting is that the bluebird keeps landing on the top of the shepherd's crook that holds feeders right next to the house and he's looking at me! O.o

I better go start my to-do list! Happy Thursday!
