Saturday, Woot Woot

Saturday is here, we have June gloom outside.  However, compared to the rest of the country, that seems to be one second from busting into Hades, I'm glad for the respite.

The word Woot makes me smile when I read it.  I don't know why, I even use it, not sure of that either.

So today I thought I would find out what it means and share that with you.  An educational blog, who knew. 
Woot comes from the gamers, on-line, live in their own world kind of folk.  When they would fight for, steal or find a treasure, some would type out to each other, "Wow, loot."  Which has been shortened to Woot.  The rest of us mere mortals have picked up the term to mean excited or joy. 

So now I know why I smile at the word.  Because if, I too found a pot of gold or plate of chocolate chip cookies I would be wooting all over the place.  Wooting, I want dibs on that one!!! 

Happy Wooting Saturday to all

Tuesday, and I'm still not done

This past weekend was kinda a bust of a quilt show. It happens once in a while, you have to take the good with the bad. Thank goodness, that kind of bad doesn't happen to often. So I'm driving home from Arizona thinking about what I could have done to make the booth better, what I could have demo-ed to make them dust off the pocket books and buy, buy, buy.
Jared went with me, he took care of Catherine's booth, Queenie Quilts. She had a big job interview in LA and couldn't go. He was a great sport about it. Thanks goodness he was reading Dune, because he had a lot of time on his hands.

Susan Johnson, a dear friend of me and Mike's died on Sunday. You are missed. Fish on.
