The Ides of March Are Upon Us...

Why, oh, why does Sunday time fly by? It seems like the time goes so fast on Sunday. There was no NASCAR race on today, so we busied ourselves with the chores that we did not do when we were goofing off yesterday. We went to church, then had a salad at a local restaurant which welcomes dogs. In fact, it even has a doggie menu. Liesie is allowed a special treat every once in a while of a little bit of chicken breast at her favorite restaurant. We sat outside because it was such a lovely day. The sun was shining and it was warm and delightful.

Back at the house, DH started on the garden while I finished all of that laundry. Yuck. I am happy though that I got some stuff organized and the floors all clean. The house looks pretty nice. We both quit our chores around 5pm. DH went to play his trumpet and I got a cup of tea and sat down to stitch. As usual, there was nothing on television Sunday night, so I caught up on some Martha Stewarts and Good Eats that I had recorded. (We L-O-V-E Alton Brown!)

It has been a nice, cozy evening. I got to stitch quite a bit. It has been such a relaxing weekend. I caught up on a bit of sleep, and feel pretty relaxed going into the work week. These kinds of weekends are a rare thing so I feel really pretty happy.
I am going to try to post a picture of my progress tomorrow. I need to load more batteries in the camera. I swear it just eats batteries like there is no tomorrow. My piece does show a lot of progress, so I am eager to show it off. Until then-

Have a great Monday!

Patti...are you using a Digital Camera...if you are you can get Re-Chargeable least for most of them may want to check into that. My Digital Camera was eating Batteries up too but not anymore - I got a Re-Chargeable Battery for mine plus the Re-Charger to re-charge my battery. Since I have bought my Re-Chargeable Battery I haven't had to buy any batteries and it is so nice too.
