Today was the day I was report to Jury Duty for the first time.  I must admit, I was quite happy to see the summons in my mailbox.  I have always been interested in the whole judicial process, as well as doing my civic duty, and really had no interest or inclination in trying to get out of it.  Unfortunately for me, it was not meant to be this time around.  I was assigned to Group 21 for today’s jury selection, however when I called the clerk of courts over the weekend for instructions,  Groups 1-20 were instructed to report for duty while Groups 21 and above were dismissed…bummer.

So instead, aside from a quick little blog post, my assignment for today is to complete the title page and introduction of my research paper, as well as write my essay on the Philosophy of Nursing.  Woo hoo!

At the moment I’m taking a break and wanted to show you the four fat qufqswaparters I’ve chosen the Sew, Mama, Sew fat quarter swap.  I didn’t follow a pattern or color theme, I simply chose patterns that I really liked.  I think my favorite might be the Koi fish second from the left.  I love the colors in the flower pattern, love the aqua in the pattern on the far right, and am a girly girl at heart who loves butterflies as in the blue pattern.  In the morning I will be sending each one off to their new homes, one as far away as Australia!  I hope the recipients are happy with what I chose. slumdog_millionaire

On a completely side note, I watched the Oscars last night mostly because I wanted to see Slumdog Millionaire do well, and it did.  If you haven’t seen the film yet, it’s really well worth hype and attention it’s received and I highly recommend it.
