How was your weekend?

My weekend was fun. Friday I didn't have to go to work so my car got washed. The bugs were horrible on the windshield and front bumper.
Went out with 8 other women from Curves. We do this once a month. We ended up going to Margarita's, which is a Mexican restaurant. We had a lot of fun.
I always stitch an ornament on the 25th of each month. Well Friday was pretty busy so I didn't get to my ornament til Saturday. This is JCS 2007 Brittercup Poinsettia. I am not sure how I want to finish it yet.
This card was from a ornament, etc kit class that i took in Myrtle Beach, with the Cross Stitch pals. The class was with M Designs. I started it back in October and finished it up today. Then I kitted up another card to start next weekend.
During all of this stitching I watched quite a bit of TV
Catch and Release - really good
Nancy Drew- was ok
Ratatouille - cute
Grey's Anatomy
General Hospital
Ghost Whisperer
some Nascar today
Desperate Housewives

I even had a chance to read a little bit. I am reading Kitty Goes To washington by Carrie Vaughan

This week I will be stitching on Fishing Santa Stocking.

a nice weekend

We have had beautiful weather and it is nice to have the windows open again and breathing in the fresh air. Nothing exciting this weekend here. I stitched, read and watched movies.
tonight's Desperate Housewives
Ghost Whisperer 4/11
Medium 4/14
August Rush- awesome movie but have kleenex ready
Across The Universe - watched about 15-20 minutes and did not care for it . I did like the music though :-)
The Seeker - enjoyed

No Humans Involved - Kelley Armstrong - paranormal book and have enjoyed the other books in this series.

Finished KarenAZ's RR - Christmas Alphabet by Prairie Schooler and I stitched S and the K
I took M Designs Ornament class . at MB, in October and have pulled it out. Am working on a Christmas card that I started at the class. I will work on this kit of ornaments etc. on the weekends as part of the Cross Stitch Pals MB challenge . The card that I am doing is We Love The Winter Weather and will post a pic when I am done.

The kids go back to school tomorrow, after 2 weeks off. Which is a good thing because Dylan has had friends over almost every day and night since it started. Will be nice to have my house back :-) Work has been so slow and have only been getting in about 12 hours a week. Can't wait for this slow season to be over. it has been nice to get things done at home but bills don't get paid.

I have been playing 4 Sim City Deluxe Edition and having a blast building cities. Anyone else have this game?

No work today

My supervisor called and said not much to do today so I didn't have to go in. Caught up on some laundry and cleaned the living room.
I did finish the backstitching on the top left quarter of the stocking. I have decided to post a progress pic once a week. I started the bottom left quarter.
I also read quite a bit of Haunted by Kelley Armstrong.
As for watching TV. I watched general Hospital.
On The DVR I watched The Good Witch, which was a Hallmark movie. From Netflix I watched Evam Almighty, which I enjoyed more than Bruce Almighty.

It's my birthday!

I had a really good day. Scott bought me a bottle of wine yesterday, but I have to wait til Saturday to open it as I am on meds for a sinus infection. Anyways he bought me the most beautiful card, that meant more to me than any gift. I stop at the local coffee shop every morning and this morning I got sung to and my coffee was free. The women at work treated me for lunch so we had chinese. I got home and my mom called me and my sister sent me a txt message :-)
So I sat and watched TV and stitched a little bit.
