TGIF! Although truth be told, I’ve been confused all week as to exactly what day of the week it is. But our recycle bin is out on the street for pick up, which tells me that it’s Friday.
DD & DSIL celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary yesterday, which meant Nana had some T-time. Took them to swim lessons (for T#3) and swim team practice (for T#1 and T#2) … stopped by Dairy Queen for dinner on our way home.
The library called that the Season 9 DVD is in … watched the first disc while quilting (about 2/3 of the way done). Speaking of NCIS, the Season 10 opener was a little disappointing … my initial reaction was that it was not the best episode but still pretty good … but after watching a few Season 9 episodes, I quickly realized that trying to compress 4+ months of story line into an hour just didn’t work … it would have been far more satisfying had they fleshed out the opener, particularly the Ducky story line and the Tony-Ziva story line. And maybe reworked the ending. Still, I’m looking forward to Tuesday night.
Since I’m getting closer to finishing up my wall quilt and closer to piecing my next quilt, I think today’s the day to go sewing machine shopping. I noticed, when piecing together my wall quilt, that my machine just doesn’t have the horsepower to stitch through seamed areas … I literally had to pull the fabric through … resulting in inaccurate seams and bunched-up stitches (making it virtually impossible to rip out those inaccurate seams). All I use my machine for is sewing … quilt piecing, a little garment sewing, some garment repairs. Do they even make plain old sewing machines any more?
DH is looking forward to going with me … not because he’s interested in helping me select a new sewing machine … no, he’s interested in the prospect of lunch at Firehouse Subs just a few miles up the road from the sewing machine shop.
We got a little more rain overnight … good for our newly-planted grass seed.
I mentioned here that I was looking for a beach print to hang above our fireplace … I found one that both DH & I love … and it was taken in Hilton Head, our favorite beach destination! It’s been shipped … I cannot wait to get it framed and hung.
Not only am I having trouble remembering what day of the week it is, I am really having trouble with what day of the month it is … I am convinced that it’s about the 15th, not the 28th. Where did September go???
