I didn’t post a Weekend Wrap-up this week … I sat down to do it, but I couldn’t remember what I had done this past weekend. Now, it was a busy weekend, but not so busy that I shouldn’t be able to remember what I had done! I do believe that there’s a hole in my brain, and anything I need to remember just slips out that hole! ha! I was able to reconstruct the weekend, but by then, it was too late to post an “official” Weekend Wrap-up.
I was off Friday and spent the morning quilting while watching Gone With the Wind (my favorite movie). I took a break for lunch when it was time to flip the DVD for the 2nd half of the movie, and just after cleaning up from lunch, I got an invitation from DD to join her and the Ts for Operation Christmas Child shopping. I was thrilled to be able to spend my afternoon with them … and to work together to help out kids who wouldn’t otherwise have much of a Christmas.
Saturday was DH’s birthday. After we attended an open house for a sweet couple from church who were celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary, we headed over to St. Louis for a late lunch at Macaroni Grill. It’s one of his favorite restaurants, and we hadn’t been there in a long time. I always get their penne rustica, and in checking the web, I see that there are copycat recipes out there … I’m definitely going to have to try it out (although I do think I’m going to have to tweak it … it calls for 4 cups of heavy cream – yikes!).
Sunday morning we were at church as usual. The rest of the day was fairly quiet. After my weekly “conference” call with my dad and my sisters, I was able to get a bit of hand quilting done on T#4’s big girl quilt. I’m hoping to get that done by Christmas, but I don’t know if I’m going to meet that goal.
I’ve got the day off today, but I don’t expect to get much quilting done (at least not until after dinner). I’ve got the Ts coming over this morning … I can’t wait!
