Walking about, reading and going to the movies;

all things which do not by any stretch of my imagination or yours leads to an exciting blog entry I know  but that, for the most part, has been what my life has been about the last three week. 
     On the quilt front; I did get one piece juried into the Florida SAQA exhibit and two pieces into the World Quilt/Florida show.  All three pieces are rolled and waiting at the foot of my bed, ready to be boxed up and shipped out next week
     The weather is getting better everyday.  Better to the point that I no longer plan my day so I am not outdoors after 11:00 am.  I have on two occasions in the last few days walked to the movie theatre in the afternoon. As I have said many times, I love where I live because of what the area offers me, walk ability and walking to the movies is the best of all the good things for me.  The 18 screen  AMC complex is about 1/2 mile from my front door.
     Roughly  1/8 of  that walking  distance is me just  walking the hallways.  Walking out my apartment  door to the elevator - down four floors and the walk to the building exit. 
     I love when the movie times and movie lengths work out so I can do a back to back.  I saw two movies, "Taken 2" and "Looper" on the same day last week. This past Saturday I went back to see "Argo".  I would recommend all three. 
     Do you get the feeling that I love thrillers for both my movie viewing and my reading?  You are right and I continue to use the website "Stop you're killing me" as a reference for what to read next,  but it will be a light romance "Spring Fever" by Mary Kay Andrews in paper back form instead of a mystery on my Nook that I plan to take with me to read on the day long bus trip to Houston on October 31.
     I will give you a "Juanita's eye view" of the Houston Quilt Festival, when I am there in a couple of weeks.  I am taking along with me for the Houston trip both my laptop and camera and plan to post something from there every day.
