A lunch date, shopping, and other wonderful things.....

I went to Michael's first thing this morning to buy more of the Sugar & Cream yarn to make some more of those cotton washcloths and dishcloths. Now I want to try making a dishtowel and see how that comes out. You can see the pretty colors I got today! I couldn't decide on just one or two different colors this time so I thought I might get a variety....especially when they were only $1 a skein of yarn!

Daniel only went to school for a half day so I like to do fun things with them when they get out early on those days. I picked Daniel up from school and headed out to lunch at Burger King. Now mind you, we had already written down different food places to go to this morning before going to school and we drew out Burger King. You can see here Daniel was ready to eat when we got there.

After lunch, we went to Walmart to buy a hummingbird feeder and food because we've been having a hummingbird hang out at the front door a lot lately.

Now we know why she's been hanging out by the front porch area. She has built a nest in the hanging front porch light.

And here she was the best I could do to get this close. I LOVE my digital camera zoom!

So after our fun project with the hummingbird feeder, Daniel and I played Sorry Sliders! I won 1 out of 7 games.

Now here is Daniel BEATING mom .....again and again!

I finally said...ENOUGH! You win! I want to open my mail. So here is a picture of my new stitchy stash that came in the mail today! Down Sunshine Lane was having a 20% off sale on any chart or kit that did not have NEW on it so I got me a few things to add to my stash!
Granted the My Big Toe He Holds Tomorrow chart will be stitched up for Ted's office. He keeps saying he has all this empty space on his walls and needs me to xstitch new things to display there. I guess I could have picked something from my own stash without buying more but WHAT FUN WOULD THAT BE? Not to mention most of the charts and kits in my stash wouldn't really go in his office. least that's what I keep telling myself ... and HIM!

Now time.....if ONLY we xstitchers would be able to buy that TIME IN A BOTTLE we might get all those charts and kits stitched up.

Speaking of xstitching, I'm off to make a quick dinner so I can spend the rest of the night xstitching!


  1. Cool about the hummingbird - keep us updated if any little ones appear in the nest :) I've never been able to find one here, though I do have hummers all summer :)

  2. I've never seen a hummingbird - how fascinating to have one on your porch! Great pictures - Daniel looks recovered from his surgery. Love your new stash!

  3. Okay, loving that chicken pattern I see. HAHA Daniel kicked your butt!!!
