There's been no quilting in my life the past week, but I've been doing other things.
My older daughter and her family left the Saturday morning after Thanksgiving. We were disappointed, of course, but some other obligations had come their way. We crammed our activities into Thursday and Friday.

Wildlights at the Columbus Zoo on Friday
Besides the light show, my favorite scene of the evening was the caroling beluga whales. I oohed and aahed about how sweet the zoo had been to create this display. My daughters eventually told me they weren't caroling and reminded me that in the summer the whales are in the center of a little water park. But from now on I will always thinking of them as caroling.
Photos from an antique sale
The day after Thanksgiving I bought a smart phone (without a phone plan because I love my old, little flip phone). I think of the smart phone as a little computer -- I have internet anywhere there's an open wifi -- and a camera. The Saturday after Thanksgiving, after my older daughter and her family left, my younger daughter and I went to an antique sale and I tried out the camera. I don't know how many megapixels it is but I must say I'm somewhat impressed by it and think I will like it once I get used to it. Here are a few photos from the sale.

The new blogger dashboard
Is anyone else having withdrawals from the new blogger dashboard? It seems less like a dashboard and more like -- I don't know what. When I think "dashboard" I think of everything being accessible from one place. No longer the case on blogger, especially if you have more than one blog.
Until about the middle of the year Blogger had this little clickable "Complain to Blogger" box at the bottom right corner of the dashboard. I always thought it was funny to see it there: who would complain to Blogger? It's been changed to "Send feedback." And now I feel like complaining about the dashboard change. Ha! I think I'm getting old....
I hope you're having a wonderful December!
