I finally got around to taking a new picture of my progress on Lady of the Thread. I have not had an opportunity to work on it so far this weekend. We have been busy working on the last of the unpacking and organizing so I have been busy or tired. The house does look nice and cozy so it has been worth all of the effort. You are probably noticing that I have not mentioned my craft room though...

Okay, good time to change the subject, LOL... We did go to our play last night. It was High School Musical. The cast was really good and did a wonderful job. It totally exceeded our expectations and was just a lot of fun. We had a really wonderful time and were still can not believe the high caliber of the talent that was available for our local community theater. They were so professional and talented. DH and I said that we will definitely have to go to their next offering.

DH and I are not really into exchanging gifts for Valentine's Day. We do little things for each other throughout the year, so generally we exchange cards and eat a nice dinner at home on the 14th. (DH made roast chicken, Yum!) I was able to find a Valentine from the dog at Target so Liesie was able to give her daddy a Valentine, too. DH and I both really love chocolate, so we generally have an unspoken agreement about not bringing large Valentine selection boxes into the house at Valentines. It is too much temptation. Since moving, both of us have lost over 10 pounds each. We are proud and happy to be fitting into our clothes. We have been careful with our diets. However, today temptation was thrown into our path...

After church today, we stopped by the grocery store to pick up some tomato soup for lunch. At the front of the store, they had all of their Valentine chocolates at 50% off. We were doing so well, passing up Hersheys, Reese's, Russel Stover...But alas, then the two words for which neither of us has any resistance, showed up in a beautiful red heart box. Those two words were Whitman Sampler. We were weak. Whitman Sampler chocolates at 50% off. They bring back so many memories and are so yummy. We just did not even have a chance with our willpower. Of course, it had to come home with us. We have only had one piece each though, so we are doing well. Why, oh why, do they have to be so delicious?!
I have tomorrow off so I am hoping that I can get some stitching done then. I still have puttering to do and the craft room remains in a state of disrepair, but I really need to spend some time with the needle and thread for my sanity so I will have to carve out some time to stitch.
