TGI Monday

Woo, what a weekend DH and I just had!  DD came down with the ful, DSIL is a Bartender, working at (you guessed it) night.   Two little boys haven't gotten their flu shots.  DD (AKA Mommy) did have a flu shot, (she is a mother who works in healthcare) but this flu is apparently a different strain.  So what's a Nan & Pop to do?  Go get them on Thursday night and keep them until Sunday evening.  Friday 1/11/13 was Mommy's birthday, so Sunday we made a cake, and brought it along with dinner back to their house for a little party for Mommy.  It was the perfect ending to a busy, fun filled weekend.  
Saturday night fun included movies, M&M's, and a little wine for Nan. 

We also went to the Library, and had lunch at McDonalds (eatting in the Playland area), and burning some energy in the play area.  Riding bikes, walks, in the neighborhood, and playing board games rounded out the weekend.  I even got a little sewing in on Sunday while the little guy was sleeping, can't get any better than that.  Orca Bay is soooo close to being finished, completed picture to follow soon.

So in ending "Thank Goodness It's Monday) and happy stitching to all of us!

Happy New Year!

2013 Welcome, and congratulations to the Washington Redskins NFC Champions!  As season ticket holders Sunday was a hugh game for the home team.  I had givin my ticket to my youngest daughter thinking it would be too cold for me to go.  Then #1 son (only son) had to work, so I ended up going to the last game of the regular season against our #1 opponent, the Dallas Cowboys...What an awsome game!  It was originally scheduled for 1:00pm kick off, but the NFL changed it to Sunday Night NBC, with kick off at 8:20PM! (ratings, ratings, ratings NBC).  And 37degress at kick off time!  Burr!!  Layers, and homemade MD crab soup, and propane heaters during tailgate time warmed us all up nicely.  Inside the stadium the energy in the crowd kept us nice and warm too (never sat down once during the whole game).  Driving home from the game after a "WIN" is the best! 

Set up 5:30PM.
Once inside, Redskins band playing "Hail to the Redskins" Panoramic view.

Before going to the game, I was determined to get some sewing in.  So close, yet so far away...

One last 3 inch row needs to be added to bottom, sashing, and pieced border needs to be added.

Going into the New Year with Orca Bay still a UFO.  I can live with it...

So until next time, Happy New Year, and happy piecing.
