Specifically, life in the jury box. I've known since December that I would be on call for jury duty this week and next; however, one always hopes to either get released altogether or get assigned to a quickie case. Well, mine was the 9th name called! It took half a day to seat the jury and the judge had high hopes we'd be finished by the end of the second day.
Nope! Even though we stayed till 6 last night, we still have to go back today for summation, charge, and deliberation. It's a really interesting case and I must admit I have whiplash from going back and forth between guilty and not guilty! It's one of those cases where we are going to have to put sentiment aside and decide specifically on The Law as it is written.
So my Friday finish has nothing to do with quilting, but should be very satisfying, nonetheless.
As to RIC, I'll show my progress to date.

I have eliminated two or three colorful borders and have narrowed it down to a selection of black and white options. One has the hot pink in it and I'm hoping that will be the best choice. I don't know about you, but my quilt centers have to "tell" me what they need. I rarely have a border choice in the beginning, and if I do, I don't cut it because nine times out of ten I end up with something else!
And, finally, I have a Whoopy! Happy to report I'm down 5 pounds from my highest weight around the holidays. I'm making changes slowly, but it is significant (at least for me) that I am making conscious decisions about what I eat -- or, rather, what I DON'T eat.
I'm linking up with Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. Go see what she and others are whooping about today.
Keep warm and quilt on.
