Shad - Thanks for setting up the new thread. Like that title!! Hope you will have another gorgeous day of your long weekend and enjoy the do-nothing part of it.
Ellen - Did you have your mudslide Fri night? I've never had one, but if it's chocolate I'm up for trying one! I never did have my wine on Friday night - I conked out rather early actually - that's what happens once I get horizontal on the sofa.
And I really would have liked to see the classic movie I was tuned into - "Roman Holiday" with Audrey Hepburn & Gregory Peck. Oh well, another time.
Happy - Was the wedding yesterday? How was it? Sounds sort of like a ho-hum affair. Good it was just a work associate and you could just show your face and minimize the time commitment. But being smack in the middle of the day is inconvenient.
Ceejay - You and Happy sure have been getting the weather out your way! I hope you've not had any flooding in your place. Just read about the plan to blow up a levee down at the southern tip of IL so the town of Cairo doesn't flood. The farmers whose land will be flooded are not happy, to say the least. Mother Nature needs to take a valium.
Annie - How was the date? Glad you had good weather for your day off. Did you get a lot done? Oh, what a silly question to ask you!! Glad dd is doing well and hope the vit. switch does the trick w/ the all-day sickness. Thanks for clearing up my confusion re BB and glad to hear there's a plan in place for that puppy.
Michelle - Sounds like the pool exercise is working for you. Good to hear.
Hope Mischief's blood test was good.
Mel - Well, I remember reading about your new tires, so good for you.
Sooooo glad you're back and running at full speed again! Hope you've had a quiet weekend.
Sitting out here in the 3-season room w/ the laptop. Smells sort of musty out here - I'll get the windows out here open today to get some fresh air in. All is bright and sunny for now. The grass in the back yard is really tall - needs that first mowing in a bad way. I asked bf yesterday if the mower was ready to go - hint hint.
As I mentioned, Friday night I conked out relatively early. I woke up before 5 am on Saturday - way too early.
But I read my book, dinked around, had a good breakfast and went to the 9 am circuit class. Showered, started laundry, then out for some errands. Having changed my mind back and forth, I took a jacket to the cleaners to have them put the !@#$ pocket flaps back on and be done with it. Also shopped for buttons for my raincoat sleeves (after unsuccessfully searching for the buckles in stores & online), but Hobby Lobby has but one little rack of buttons, so I struck out there.
After a dogwalk by the creek & lunch w/ bf (pork torta) I went to JoAnn's and bought the buttons for the raincoat and some for another jacket that currently has buttons I don't like. Also succumbed to a sale and bought a cheery flannel print to turn into pj pants. Plenty of time to get those done! I thought I might buy some knit t-shirt type fabric to also sew into pj pants (to replace a pair of favorites that are literally about to fall apart), but I didnt find anything at Joann's. Might just try to find some that are ready-made, esp. since they'd probably be cheaper than the cost of the fabric for DIY ones. Stopped by Trader Joe's for the usual stuff.
Bf and I watched the British version of "Death at a Funeral" last night - we both liked it slightly better than the US (Chris Rock) version. Shorter too, which I like, LOL.
I might get out in the yard today to collect the twigs and branches in anticipation of the mowing. Still need to re-install the weedcloth, so I better do that. And if I get tired of those tasks, I might just sit outside and sew on all those buttons. Also need to check the flyers and find a sale on laundry detergent - catching up on the sheets and towels and blankies and throws means I'm coming to the end of the detergent before I've gotten going on my own laundry.
Okay, enough rambling, I'll get this posted. Everyone have a wonderful day!
