The Weekend Ends...

I was informed yesterday that."I had not posted since mid-week!" My daughter and sister were sitting at my dining room table yacking (yes, I said yacking) about my posts and how they pull pictures from the blog. I guess since I don't do Facebook this is their way of keeping tabs on me. Hi guys!

******************************************************

Nothing much to talk about. I finished another long legged bird early in the week.

Christmas Bird
Heart in Hand
14 ct aida
Recommended floss
Friday was DH's birthday and his cake was yesterday. He had a great time. He is quite enjoying his gift from me. A hand held weather station. Friday - I had to insist he take it off when entering the theater and grocery store. And again when getting into bed. Today is sits beside him at his elbow.

We went to see "Cowboys and Aliens." I'll say the lead man his a nice tush. Couldn't miss it as it was surrounded by chaps the whole movie. Not much to say about the movie - you have seen the trailers and can use your imagination. It's about aliens attacking in the old west. I went along to sit in the dark with my husband. I got serious brownie points.

Hopefully today will being some stitchy time.

I haven't seen the trailer, as my TV doesn't work except for movies, but it sounds funny. I tend to laugh inappropriately, lol. Glad you got lots of brownie points! And glad your DH loved his gift. It's always nice to know you really hit the mark!! Hope you're stitching away now!
