And What Did Delaware?
A New Jersey!
I love the childhood rhymes and plays on words from days gone by that fly through my memory when I cross state lines.
However, it is never fun to realize that there are red and blue lights flashing in your rear view mirror as you fly through Maryland.
OOPS!! The speed limit went from 65 in DC down to 55 in Maryland and as I was in the far left lane, I never saw the change in speed limit signs on the far right. I am totally guilty.
I was also heavily involved in listening to Charade by Sandra Brown on my audible.
Officer, I’m guilty! And I’m so sorry. And I’m not from here, and not familiar with this road, and I’m just going to Delaware and I’ve been driving for hours and hours…..
I sat patiently in my car while she took my license and registration. My hands were shaking. I texted home. “I’m pulled over!” “Serves you right! You drive like you sew. Pedal to the metal!”
And I got off with a warning. My lucky day.
The cruise control from then on stayed at 55 even though traffic was now flying by me on either sides at a rapid pace.
Crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge.
This bridge is 4.3 miles long.
I stopped to take some photos and to stretch my legs a bit.
I was getting closer!
And still shaking from the near ticket experience.
I spy a stack of Carrie’s Quiltville quilts!
Marti’s Quiltville quilts!
I’m happy to be staying with my friend Marti, and we are making it a slumber party of three as Carrie is staying here too. We’ve planned this for a while. Carrie even cooked dinner, pampering our palates with marinated Korean pork [Dae Ji Bool Gogi] and rice, and sauteed yellow and zucchini squash.
An evening of hexie sewing and chatting finished off the evening and I was happily tucked into bed beneath the Virginia Bound quilt that Marti made, started in a previous workshop a couple of years ago.
Today we are full bore with a double duty day at hand. 50 students for today’s Talkin’ Turkey workshop and a guild presentation tonight with the Helping Hands Quilt Guild in Dover.
Bring it on, I’m ready!
