I guess I’m the only one whose body clock is still running 3 hours ahead of schedule. I can already tell I’m going to need a nap before dinner!
I KNOW there are folks here – because I see boxes and piles of cartons ready to be set up for registration tonight for Quiltmaker Magazine’s Block Party, here in Portland, Oregon.
((For those who didn’t know – here’s a little diction lesson for ya! The Hubster and my boys were all Oregon born ---it’s pronounced Ore-eh-gun. NOT ORE-EE-GONE!! It hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s been here all along. With his gun. LOL!))
I need to find out where my lecture is going to be so I can haul the body bags down there and get set up for that before we head out to dinner.
And did I mention I’m going to need a NAP? SERIOUSLY ---my body wouldn’t sleep any later than 9am East Coast time – which means I was up at 6am after getting in at midnight.
More Block Party STUFF!!
I took a walk around to explore the hotel a bit. This place is HUGE!
This was the view from the hallway window outside my room:
Mt Hood is out there somewhere in the clouds…..
if you look at the end of the right hand railing going down the slope…you will see just how much water is pouring out of that down spout from rain run off! Here in Portland, they call that “Liquid Sunshine”.
I’m fine with it now that I’m indoors and the bags are dry – at least it is not SNOW!
And LOOK! BLOOMING PINK!
The rain has slowed, and there is evidence of brilliant green and blooming pink in the parking lot. Color me a happy girl!
More adventures to come as this day unfolds ----
