April Fools Day

After 2 weeks,several showers, & a couple of soaks in the hot tub, my feet are finally back to their normal color. The picture is me rolling blue dye on to the bottoms of my feet to make my foot prints on to a piece of scrap fabric that I intend to make a banner for my studio out of with my "Cold Feet Quilter" title on it.
I woke up early this morning, the sky out over the Cook Inlet is dark & brooding looking. Maybe it'll bring rain to wash away the snow. We still have a good foot here in the yard, but we're at about 1800 ft, there's quite a bit less down at the bottom of the hill. We had Chinook winds 2 nights ago. Last night was quiet.
Warren & I went & saw the new 'Ice Age, the Meltdown' movie. I loved it. It was very cute, funnier I think even than the 1st one. It had a bad review in the paper yesterday, & I told Warren that probably will mean that we'll love it, & we did. There was one particularly corny scene that reminded me of an old Hollywood choreographed dance number that I found very tounge in cheeky, that the critic probably didn't like, but I'm an old synchronized swimmer, so I love that kind of stuff.
I changed the calendar pages this morning, took down the winter quilts from the walls, & Warren's Santa pictures finally. Time to decorate for Spring!& go back to Weight Watchers. I need to shed a few winter pounds!

Probably right that the cold feet quilter has blue feet. Loved Ice Age, will have to see this one.

Deb, I love your idea for the cold feet banner! I saw your message to me over in The Lounge, I don't know why my blog doesn't appear on the list when you click my name. I'm lost somehow. But it's Stop by, there are more pics of Alaska up today.

My cousins live on the Kenai, in a tiny town called Cooper Landing, so when you talk about Cook Inlet I can see it in my mind's eye. It's a beautiful spot. We saw it at dusk (dusk lasts a long time!) and the snow-capped mountains were lavender and the sky a periwinkle blue...or maybe it was the other way around. I didn't get a photo but it was incredibly beautiful.

I've gone to work multicolored too! But never my feet... lol

If you do a lot of dying, try a cream stuff I found a year or so ago, called 'Reduran'that removes dye. It doesn't smell great, but it works. has it. :)

You have always been supportive of my hair color choices, so I support your feet color choices!
Darian says hello! She is waiting for the computer while I am reading your blog. :-)

Sunday is weight check-in at the Quilter's Lounge. Come by and let us know how you progressed for the week--good and the bad. It's a very supportive group and we try to keep each other on diet and exercise paths that are good for us.
