So yeah, Saturday ended on a good note. Saturday night, during the night, was lousy with illness related stuff but can be forgotten now as it is over. This morning I started out feeling a little better but
We then headed to the mall to kill an hour before James' soccer game. Ruby had no interest in the play area (she's not feeling good, either) but there was a woman with a 10 week old baby boy next to us and she was all over that. She kept trying to peek under this woman's nursing cover up...it was pretty funny. (soon, dear Ruby, you will see more nursing action than you ever thought possible...) The woman was really nice and I enjoyed talking with her. She was telling me how she cried for over 6 hours when she found out her second child was also a boy. :( She really wanted a girl and says they are stopping at 2 kids. I told her to give it a couple years...she might be more willing to try again. :)
After the mall we went to James' soccer game. It was a freezing but sunny day and we had all bundled up so it felt pretty good to be out in it. It was good to be outside and see our friends a little. After the game we went to Noodles for dinner and by the time we were heading home, at 6:45, I felt ready for bed. So now it's 9 and I am finally getting there. (I decided to do just a little sewing after the kids went to bed.)
I finished 7 of my 12 dishtowels (shown below) for this week and have a good start on the other 5 (also shown below...partially finished...new design)...will probably finish them tomorrow. My goal for this week is to get lots of felt cookies cut out and as many cards done as I can handle. This will depend, of course, on how myself and the fam is feeling. We are also supposed to leave for Duluth on Thursday but I can cut cookies out there (and leave them to be beaded by my darling mother) as well as here.
So, to make a long story still pretty long, that is why I am feeling content. A weekend that could have been totally yucky ended up having so many really nice little moments. xoxo
I have a doctor appt. early tomorrow so I won't have anything new here until the afternoon when I will pop in and announce the WINNER of the banner! Thank you all for commenting...especially Teresa, a formerly unknown-to-me reader who assured me she is not creepy. :)
