So while we were in Minneapolis we stopped at Lunds & Byerleys-it's a grocery store. It reminded me a lot of Lucky's in Iowa City. Lots of natural and/or organic stuff.Anyways, I'd never seen apples packaged like these from Rockit. $3.49 gets you 3 apples in a plastic protective tube. They're pre-washed and ready to go. What a brilliant idea!

So we ran some errands and did a little shopping while we were in Minneapolis. We stopped at a couple of uniform shops looking for the ugly green scrub tops that DD is being required to have for her work. One shop had a nice assortment so we got pants there and I saw this sign in the window...It says
Always Be Yourself UNLESS you can be Batman then you should always be Batman. HAHAHA!
Made me laugh!!
Anyhow, this shop had a ton of stuff and we got several ugly tops and pants and a pair of shoes too!Then it was time for lunch...or did we have lunch first...whatever!
It's a wonderful thing when the person driving knows the way to go! None of us had ever been to Element Wood Fire Pizza before so it was a total surprise for all of us! Here's the Link for Element Pizza's webpage.
Element Pizza ® 96 Broadway St. N.E. Minneapolis, MN 55413(612) 379-3028
What a cozy little place for lunch! Lovely wood tables and a rustic cabin feeling. There is also a patio so you could eat outside too. We love air conditioning......
Stop at the counter and order from the huge menu of pizza choices. one size fits all! And you can watch the pizza bake in the wood fire oven too!

So, my Girlfriend-In-Law has been running in 5K fun runs. I know, right? What an athlete-she likes to run! She saw the phone pocket I made for DD last year to hold her phone while she was mowing the lawn. It just clips to her bra strap.

So I cut up some fabric I had been hoarding for awhile. I just love it, so I wasn't too keen on cutting it up, but...well it's gotta happen sometime. I saw an old fashioned Snowball Quilt in a magazine and thought it would be good for the large typewriter print. SO I cut about a zillion tiny squares of dark fabrics for the corners.....
And look at this cute box I used to hold all those tiny little squares..My Mom got it for me.It's a pretty fancy box that you're supposed to put a quilt block in the lid for decoration. It's a perfect size for all those dark squares!
And cut up the wonderful fabric from Julia Rothman for Windom Fabrics. You can see it here.
I haven't been very motivated lately, but I got started on a few blocks. DD stopped over and lookie here! She ironed my blocks for me while I sewed! What a great gal!!
