It's DH's birthday! Happy 53rd Honey!! I hope you had a wonderful day and I hope you have many, many more wonderful days because I selfishly want to spend more time with you!! *Hugs*
It was a busy day for me today. I promised my buddy, Sonya, that I would stitch with her today. Thankfully the snow never amounted to much, and though it was a bitter cold, windy day, I climbed in my van and headed off for a few hours to stitch with Sonya. When I went out to get in my van this morning, it had all been cleaned off and I noticed the gas tank had been filled. Am I spoiled or what? We had a fun day, though shorter than either of us would have liked...but guess what? I finished parts one and two of Romantique Sampler SAL so I'm ready when the next two parts are released!! YAY!! I don't know why, but it took me forever to finish these two parts, I couldn't decide if I liked the lighter color and finally threw up my hands and finished stitching...I like it now!! I guess I had to see it in natural sunlight. Unfortunately the pictures were taken after sundown, so you can't really see how it looks. Maybe next time? Anyway, here's my progress! If you click on the picture it should enlarge it for you so you can see it a bit better.
Yesterday the mail man arrived with a round tube...from California...and in it was a little present from Gail. Gail has been my pen pal for a few months, and she's a very patient pen pal because I haven't been the best writer!! LOL My mind just hasn't been in the right place for a few months, but now that chemo is over I hope to be better at writing. My first letter back to her will be a thank you card, because just LOOK what she sent me!?!?!?!?! Isn't it beautiful? I have tried to crochet doilies before and they look like bowls when I'm finished because I crochet too tightly, so I admire anyone who can make them look like this. Thank you, Gail, and your Mom too (who made this lovely doily) I will find the perfect place to display it!! I truly AM spoiled!!!
And then today...a package that was sent on December 13th finally arrived! I can hear the collective sigh from England! Mouse has been anxiously awaiting for this to arrive, and I can tell you it was worth the wait!! Look at the lovely card she made, and the little clipboard "to do list" and one of my favorite candies....Peanut M&M's! I even got a letter...now I have two to write...I'll get right on that too...tomorrow. I'm going to put it on my "to do list". LOL Thank you so much, Mouse...I'm spoiled from every corner of the world!! And to think, it wasn't even MY birthday!!
I took DH out to dinner at the Cheesecake factory. YUM!!! I have to be careful because I could become addicted to their cheesecake!! I had the Kahlua Cocoa Coffee Cheesecake for desert, but I was good, I saved half for tomorrow. Then we came home to watch a movie I had given him for his birthday..."Soylent Green". If you've never heard of it, I'm not surprised, it's a weird movie. It's definitely "SciFi" and gives you lots to think about as our world becomes more populated.
And that was the end of my busy day. So as soon as this is posted I'm headed to bed. Thanks for dropping by! *Hugs*
