Monday Monday ...

I just love the Mama's and Paps's ... I've had this song in my head since this morning, just work up with it! lol

We survived the snow over the weekend. Most was gone by late Saturday night, but it remains very cold here, I think the high will be 50, with a low of 35. I'm sure Spring is out there somewhere .. at least the flowers are trying to bloom.

I spent Saturday cleaning house in the am with DH, some laundry and grocery shopping and then settled in for some stitching. I worked on L*K double flipits, finished Remember last week and Give this weekend, and started Listen. I'm really enjoying this project. I think I'm going to give it to Chris and Monica .. maybe as an anniversary gift in September. I also worked on my biscornu, hopefully I'll have it done next weekend. I need some time to learn to put it together and the exchange is due 5/10. No pressure here! lol I also worked on my new Bent Creek start. I couldn't get a good picture of it last night .. I'll try again .. I just love the fabric and the colors :)



Sunday we went out to breakfast with the kids. DH and I were going to run some errands after dropping Robert back at the house .. but DH and I started fighting on the way home, over something sooo stupid .. I got pissy and said I didn't want to go anywhere .. changed into my comfy clothes, put laundry away and stitched. I also rented a wonderful movie .. Martian Child with John Cusack. Has anyone seen it? OMGosh it was good .. I just love John. I don't think I've seen a movie with him in it that I didn't thoroughly enjoy. I'd recommend it to anyone. Sunday night one of my favorite shows was back .. Brothers and Sisters .. anyone else watch this? I love it and last night was a great episode!

I really enjoyed all the comments about snow in April .. this is really out of the norm for us! But the skiers and snowboarders are really enjoying it! lol

I had a couple of comments about the pin tins in my last post .. she's an ebay seller .. her ebay store is Calico Cottage Crafts. She's really nice, responds back quickly and I was very happy with the products .. however, she's in Australia so shipping is a bit costly. Didn't wany anyone to be "surprised".

I'm grateful for productive stitching weekends ...

Your stitching looks wonderful! DH and I have fights over stupid things from time to time that make me not want to go out anymore too. I'm dying to see your new Bent Creek start!

LOL Doug went fishing with the boys yesterday and they got food on the way home but didn't think about calling to see if i wanted any. Needless to say i was in the same mood as you. Like you said, we are twins. LOL love ya sis!

Great stiching!

I haven't seen Martian Child but I LOVE John Cusak, so I must go find it. Sorry about the spat with your DH - sometimes those things are just "needed" to clear the air. We've had a couple 'round here the past weeks, too.

Hope everything goes well today {{{{hugs}}}}

I love some of the older groups as well, their songs make me smile, and they really do perk up your mood. However, on occation the songs do tend to get stuck in your head, and now you have me humming Monday Monday, LOL.

I haven't seen the movie Martian Child, I'll have to look for it. I love funny movies, and enjoy John Cusack a lot so it should be a fun way to spend the evening. Your Double Flips are looking great. I just started this one and am really enjoying it.
