Mystery Bea

Some cute shots of our anonymous little lady...

Check out Bea's awesome hairdo:
We went hiking Memorial Day weekend up near Mount Tamalpais and we used the kid carrier that our neighbor gave us. Bea must have liked it because she slept for most of the hike.

There's the old Pacific Ocean in the background.

Random Stuff - Ohlone 50K

Last week it hailed here!! Weird! It only lasted a few minutes and then the rain melted it away.

Another random thing - these are the boxes our pizza place uses for takeout. What does it mean: "Enjoy Your Delicious Moments?" And why is one dude a cartoon guy and one semi-realistic? It makes me laugh.

On the quilting front: Here's what I'm making from a bunch of half-square triangle batiks I got from a quilting exchange at my local quilt shop like a year or more ago. They've been sitting in a paper bag forever. I saw this exact thing on Fons & Porter on TV recently and decided to dig them out. The colors aren't really my thing, but that just means I don't feel bad just doing whatever with them. I've got 84 2" squares. Here you can see 16 of them. If I use them all, it'll still be a pretty small thing. Oh well... just for fun. I put away the hand quilting of the monster quilt for now.

And... This weekend Scott did the Ohlone Wilderness 50K Trail Run, from Fremont to Livermore. It was pretty scenery from what I could tell as a spectator, but I only saw the start, the finish, and one aid station. Bea and I got to see some new parks and relaxed while we waited. Apparently it was a pretty tough course - at least two very significant peaks. Scott was bummed to have had the stomach flu the week leading up to the race, but he still did well. 4th overall and 1st in his age group! Now he's hobbling around, but at least he doesn't have to get up at 6:00 for his morning run for a while :)
