Monday....

Okay, so it is Monday once again.  The weekend went by way too fast.  Friday started off good!  SF decided that we needed a break from reality and wanted to go see a movie.

So, what did she have in mind?  She wanted to see Robin Hood.  Now keep in mind that I am not a huge fan of Russell Crowe but I do love the story behind Robin Hood, so I acquiesced.  It was 9:45 AM CST when she made her proclamation to attend the 11:25 AM CST show, so we had to finish breakfast in a hurry and shower.  We arrived at the cinema at 11:05 AM CST.  Just in time to get the tickets, get popcorn and water and locate seats.  The show was PACKED!  The movie was a bit slow at times but overall I like this version.  It was more about how Robin Hood came to be and that was a different twist.  It was a great way to start off the day!

The rest of the day was lazy and we didn't get much done with the drizzle that started in the afternoon.  We did manage to get the pool all situated.  As soon as the water temp is favorable, you can bet that I will be reaping the rewards of getting her primed and ready.  I love having a pool right outside my bedroom door!  Saturday was sluggish.  The rain storms over the course of the night had left me exhausted, as the dogs were afraid of all the thunder and lightening and they kept trying to get into the bedroom and that woke me up.  We decided to get our errands done so that we could watch the first WNBA game and then get ready for the Flamingo Party.


















Picture is for Joe!  This is what we see every year when we pull up in front of the house.  This is just a SMALL taste of what the rest of the house looks like.  I never knew that there was so much stuff made in the Flamingo theme.  They even have toilet paper....  The rain forced the hosts to have all the food set up in the garage but it was no big deal.  We always enjoy the company and I had fun this year messing with the younger crowd.  The host couple has kids that range from 23 to 28 and they are easy to trip up because they are trying to watch themselves around the older folks.  I think the ZiegenBock made it easier to talk with them, as the "adults" were drinking "Ritas" and wine....

Sunday was completely lazy.  We slept in, seriously...10:00 AM CST.  We had a lazy breakfast and went grocery shopping.  We decided that we were too tired to cook, so we went to KFC and got the Komen dinner deal.  We got home just in time to get our food and plop down to watch another WNBA game.  I got to see my gal play....GO LIBERTY!



















I also managed to finish Stephanie's Calais and it is all pinned out drying today.  Pictures will be taken later today or tomorrow and I will post them.  I cannot say how much I love this pattern.  It is a simple one and I will be making at least two more.  I need to make one for Megan and I also want to make one for my mom.

Okay, off to do real work....this will be a fast week...Wednesday night we will be going to see Patrice Pike.  Thursday night we will be going to the Jimmy Buffett concert.  Friday night is wide open at the moment but that too could change.  Saturday we have hair cuts at 8:30 AM CST.....Sunday we had better be sleeping in....Before I forget.  Tuesday's temptations will be all about the pool and pool related stuff....

Have a GREAT MONDAY!

Can't wait to see photos of your latest FO! I'm so slow on mine ... it feels like things are taking me forever to knit. I may just start bringing my knitting back to work, just to show them that I do get my work done AND I can knit.

I wonder what would happen if I went crazy with gnomes the way they did with the pink flamingos?

Calais was a success! I am loving making shawls and wraps from sock yarns.

as for the gnomes...I would love it personally and I am trying to figure out what I can use as my signature item here as an excuse to host a party....
