We've all got our ears open to hear the UPS truck since there is good stuff for everyone (except Jeff) in the box. He plans to buy the Harry Potter book as soon as it comes out. I offered to order it, but he didn't want to risk missing a day in the mail.

This and That
I completed the New York Times crossword puzzle yesterday. The first time I've finished a Wednesday puzzle. Yeah!
Claire and Benjamin and I went to the Madi Museum on Tuesday. (Is anyone familiar with the Madi art movement?!) We went specifically to see Susan Lumsden's quilts. You can read Susan's blog entry about the opening here. Her quilts were a perfect fit for the modern, geometrically focused gallery. I enjoyed looking at the quilting with Claire, particularly studying the pieces in which she incorporated both machine and hand stitching. We also had fun trying to match up the quadrants of the different circle pieces. Claire was intrigued by the glass pieces that were exhibited with the quilts. Benjamin, on the other hand... let's just say, I would have loved to read more of Susan's witty and information descriptions of her quilts rather than play 5-year-old patrol.
I am loving So You Think You Can Dance! Sabra and Dominic are officially my favorites. (Lacey and Kameron could sneak in, though.) And I really hope Danny finds some personality because he's clearly an amazing dancer -- but that's not enough.
Not totally loving Top Chef, but I'll keep watching. Also hoping to go to Abacus, where Tre cooks, in October.
Rented Catch and Release last week. Blah.
Ordered books that will arrive today.
