Fridays Feast 9/21/07

I had the good sense to pick the partially ripe tomatoes and bring them in the house to finish ripening yesterday. I heard it was going to be 41 degrees in Spokane/Coeur d'Alene overnight. That means a super dip under 32 here. I was right. My tomato plants are now dark green slime. It was fun while it lasted.

I have 3 inches done on the second Mystery Sock. Cool!

I spent most of yesterday moving photos from my Flickr web album to Picasa. My introductory 'pro' version of Flickr is about to expire, and what you get for free isn't enough for my purposes. besides, Picasa is much easier to use. I will still hold on to my Flickr album, cos I need it for putting pics on Ravelry. For now, though, Picasa will be the main album.

I have a COOL new banner. I created it at Cool Text , a free logo/banner creating web site, then modified it myself with Paintshop Pro.

Here's todays Fridays Feast:

What is your favorite type of art?
Music. It touches all my emotions.


When was the last time you got a free lunch (or breakfast or dinner)? Who paid for it?
Lets see, I'm not going to count the ones my husband paid for because technically, that's not free, since what is his is mine and vice versa. My daughter and her boyfriend bought me lunch a few weeks or so ago. I think that was the last time.


On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how emotional are you?

Main Course

Approximately how long do you spend each day responding to emails?
About an hour.


To what temperature do you usually set your home’s thermostat?
70 degrees for day, 55 for night. Actually had to turn the furnace on yesterday. Yup, summer is definitely toast. Waaaaaahhhhhhh........!

Have a great day!


  1. I am so glad Summer is over. Not that I don't like it, but I prefer it cooler. :-)

    Have a great weekend!

  2. Great feast! Mine is up too. Hope you can visit me! Have a great weekend ahead :)

  3. Happy Friday. This is one year I'm really glad summer is over. It's been terribly hot this year. It's good to meet someone who is at least as emotional as I am :-)

  4. I think I must know you. We live close. I very much admire your beaded fishies. I wonder if we could trade patterns? Is there anything I do that you would like to know about? Please email me so we can talk. Thank you~ e
