"Never" came the reply.
Yesterday we woke to a 30 degree drop in temperatures, pouring rain and streaks of lightning throughout the sky.
What to do, what to do?
I came up with a brilliant idea.
"We could drive over to Fallbrook and visit a quilt store" I casually suggested.
Such a friendly staff.
They were quite thrilled with the lightning and the rain. One employee mentioned that she doesn't even own an umbrella because they see rain so seldom.
Quilters Cottage loves cats. You can find a great array of anything that includes quilts and cats.
Like these cute appliqued blocks by Garden Patch Cats.
and my favorite: Avocato
There were plenty of other fabrics and patterns to choose from.
A Halloween section
And more cats
Guess what she chose?
One of the reasons Mr. Cactus was open to driving to a quilt store was because he had never been to Fallbrook, the Avocado Capitol of The World.
How could a man pass up such an opportunity?
Circa California 1960's.
Driving through the fields of agriculture and nurseries brought back so many childhood memories.
Of course we had to stop and buy a large bag of avocados (25 for $5) and freshly picked oranges that taste completely different than the grocery store variety.
