I Zentangled instead of stitching

Tonight I made a Weight Watchers recipe, which was very good. I had chicken left over from it so i made homemade chicken noodle soup. MMMM. My manager gave me a tub of chicken base instead of broth. I added some poultry seasoning, dried minced onions, celery , carrots, and chicken. Simmered for 2 hours and then added Kluski noodles instead of egg noodles. OMG! That was the best chicken soup I have ever made.

I sat down tonight and watched Halloween (the original one with Jamie Lee Curtis). Pulled out my sketchbook, pens and Zentangle books for ideas. This is what I came up with. Very relaxing and lots of fun.


My plan was to sew up the Halloween finishes. But by the time I was done in the kitchen and online it was 8:00 so I did this instead.

Oh by the way DH and I have lived here almost 23 years. It will be 23 on Halloween plus it is DH's birthday. Anyways we have never bought any furniture for this house except for a couple of end tables, coffee table, lamps and one glider rocker. Everything was always given to us or given as gifts. Well DH and I stopped at a furniture store on Saturday, just to look. I want a happy chair in my craft room. This is what Spinster Stitcher calls her stitching chair and I love the name. Anyways I found the chair that I want. Then we walked around some more and found a huge sale clearance section. We got a sofa and matching loveseat for $560. it goes for over $1000. We could not pass it up so I also added in the happy chair which is a big comfy recliner. I did sit in it and pretended I was stitching. How pathetic is that? Haha. They will be delivered on Wednesday. The sofa is going in my living room and the love seat is going in the family room. So tomorrow night I have to sew up the finishes so I can take down my sewing table to make room for the chair. I will still use the table when I need to. My craft room is looking good. I still need to buy 2 bookends and I did find them. Springtime I will need to replace the floor and paint the ceiling. Let's just say that Dylan loved one of his girlfriends and is written in neon colors on the ceiling lol.

Thanks for all your visits and comments, they mean alot to me.
