Pokey's latest trick is to drown her toys. First I found a wet ball of perle cotton laying on the floor. Since then I've discovered her pompoms and one of my socks floating in the cats' drinking bowl. (What does she care if that bowl is polluted - she doesn't like to drink out of it anyway.)
I've finished quilting the America With Flag little quilt and started quilting again on Liberty Blooms, which was just looking really pathetically bare to me. So more quilting it is. Have several quilts on the "to be bound" pile, but not much interest in taking care of them.
All that quilting took a toll on my right wrist and I had to take a break for a couple of days. I've been icing and anti-inflammatorying and all of that has helped too. Thankfully - I was a bit worried.
Had a wonderful day with my sweetheart yesterday. We had lunch at the food court of the Louvre (easy, fast, big variety, and they speak English) and took a quick trip in to see my beloved lamassu. You'll undoubtedly get pestered with more pictures of the same.
The Eurosport live audio on the internet (via Yahoo, the stinkers) fell apart for several days and I wasn't able to watch the Tour de France with any kind of enjoyment. Found another way yesterday to get the English-language commentary, so put the audio through the laptop on the coffee table and watched the action on tv. Wasn't synced up, but I was still a happy camper. It was going to be pretty ironic if moving to France was what led me to lose interest in the race.
Now that the Tour de France is in the mountains it's finally interesting. Time for Astana to dump Vinokourov as the lead GC contender and let Kloden do it - I think he has a much better chance. Discovery Channel looking weak and pathetic again this year. sigh.
