A nice, quiet weekend....

That's what I needed, and that's pretty much what I've gotten. Yesterday I didn't even take off my jammies, except for a shower. I sat & crocheted & watched TV all afternoon. I now have 5 bags to sell, the red one having been sold last week, and another one that I didn't take a picture of having been given to a friend for a belated birthday gift. I've got yarn (as of today) for two more bags. Some of the women I've talked to LOVE the colors, but feel that light colors are too easily dirtied, even if the bag is cotton & easily washed with their towels or such. So I've picked up a couple of moderate-toned solids in pretty blues that I'll whip up this next week. I've been averaging 2 bags a week, and a third one started. If I don't sell any this week, I'll take the lot of them in (should be 7 by then) to the gift store just up the road, and see if she'd like to put them out for sell on consignment.

Anyway, today was somewhat busier, but in a mellow sort of way. Got up and made bacon & a flat of Hawaiian sweet rolls for breakfast. (The rolls just had to be popped in the oven to warm for 5 minutes, I didn't really make them.) I'm not a big breakfast person. I like continental style breakfasts most, when I eat breakfast at all. Anyway, after that I sat & crocheted while DH played a video game & dd played on the computer, for a while. Then we went to Sam's club for some bulk grocery shopping. Spent a little too much ($$ wise) there, but we didn't get anything that we didn't truly need. And we actually didn't buy some of the things on our list, when we saw that the prices at Sam's were actually higher than our local grocery store. Then over to Michael's for a bit more cotton yarn, and then to Walmart for some Mother's Day cards. Then we came home, and dinner is about done (we eat dinner late, here). We'll settle down & watch a movie as soon as we eat, then it's to bed & start the week over again tomorrow.

For the record, dinner tonight consists of Parmesan Herb Chicken breasts, buttered egg noodles (DH likes them very plain, for some reason), and Cucumber Salad (our favorite family recipe, Shelli!). YUM!

I hope all my femail friends have a HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY tomorrow. And may EVERYBODY have a Blessed Day!

Aaaah I pretty much had the same weekend. Never left the interiors of my jammies and it felt so damn good!!! As we get older, we get to enjoy these little events more and more ;) I love it

I used to always eat noodles with just butter and maybe some garlic powder or random dried herb on it for color when I was kid. I'm not sure why.

Sounds like you've had a very nice Mother's Day weekend. I took my wife shopping yesterday to choose some books she wanted. Today she got roses, breakfast in bed, and a couple of other small gifts. Other than that, she has had the entire weekend to rest, watch TV, and engage in her Sudoku obsessions. :)
