Nothing listed Monday but got some in yesterday before I headed out to another appointment with the MIL. Got some awesome oldies in today too.
Weather warming up - it's going to be 93 today. WTH? It was just in the 70's so that's quite a jump.
We went to the Air Show at the Marine Base on Saturday and then headed to the famous Yuma Lettuce Days (just kidding). Yuma in the Lettuce Capitol of the World - bet you didn't know that! I got connected with a local organic food grower (Hillside Farms) that has the most amazing veggies. They have San Marzano Tomatoes which are the best ever. You can eat them sliced with a slight sprinkling of salt and pepper on them. If you can ever find them I highly recommend them.
More 70's patterns arrived and I have several more boxes on the way.
Here are the best of the best for yesterday and today:
