Happy Belated Mother's Day. I hope all the mom's had a lovely day!
My weekend was great .. long and busy and full of family .. just how they should be .. well not all the time, but a weekend like that every once in a while is nice.
Friday was Chris' birthday (thank you for all the nice birthday wishes in my last post). We took him to Tony Roma's .. had a wonderful meal with the 5 of us and my Dad and his girlfriend.
Saturday was very lazy for me .. Robert and Terry worked outside on the deck and I attempted to do housework but ended up spending most of my day playing on the computer and stitching. I finished Country Cottage Needlework's Sunshine Sampler. I just love this piece ... I think I might send this off to Vonna .. don't you think it would make a cute pillow?
Saturday night we went to our neighbors for tuna tacos and tequila tasting. They just got back from a 2 week vacation in a small village outside of Ixtapa, Mexico. They brought back 3 tequilas and 2 dessert tequilas. We had a great time .. and ya know there really are differences in tequilas! lol .. and the dessert ones were awesome if you like Kahula type liquors.
Sunday the kids, Chris, Monica and Robert, cooked brunch for me. It was a yummy brunch of fruit salad (strawberries, raspberries and blackberries), sticky buns, hashbrowns and a lovely baked egg dish. Robert burned me a cd of music .. all kinds, there's the Chili Peppers, Feist and Yael Naim just to name a few. Chris and Monica got me a new frying pan and some new kitchen towels. I had thrown out so many of my old crusty pots and pans, it was fun to get a new one .. and it's red! lol
We started watching the 2nd Indiana Jones movie while having brunch. After the movie was over, we went for a nice long walk and came back to watch the 3rd IJ .. all of a sudden it 6:30 and everyone was hungry again .. of course I wasn't going to cook lol so off to Chipotle. It derfinately was a nice Mother's day :)
I also stitched on my biscornu and started sewing it together .. found a button I really like for the middle .. but now I'm nervous that all fit together .. should have it done tomorrow. Ohhhh and how come no one told me how fun it is trying to pick up those dammm little backstitches when you are sewing it together! arrrgghhhh lol
Ok .. I'm off to do a little stitching before bed. Hope every had a good monday .. or as good as they can be .. after all they are Monday! lol Thanks for all your comments ... I really enjoy hearing from you all.
I'm grateful for walks with my family ...
