WOW what a difference a day makes in Texas weather!

When we went to bed on Thurs it was 76 with the A/C on it was So humid! Then when we got up Friday we had to turn the heater on as it was 37! BBRRR!!! Hasn't gotten much warmer than that since:( May have wintery mix tomorrow night into Monday. Yuck! This is not normal for Texas! We don't get this stuff until late January... Not sure what's going on!

I did get some quilting done along with some socializing this week:) Have to keep sane somehow since I haven't eaten any chocolate in almost 6 weeks. I can also post a few pics that I hinted about last week since the people have received them:)

Ok here goes.....

Yup she is mine!
