On Friday, I did a bit of shopping before going to my Dad's house to visit. I hit World Market hoping they'd have Australian tea, since Ann Campbell sent me some I'm hooked and hoping to find it somewhere in the states. Must check Amazon. Anyway, I did find some Irish tea I'd never tried. Unless I had it in Ireland and didn't know it which is possible. Besides the tea I wanted these
We had dinner out as a family on Friday night-came home stuffed.
On Saturday, Jessie and I went back to Weston. I've created a monster there! 4 years ago she wanted to go shopping the day after Thanksgiving--biggest, most horrid shopping day in the US--to which I thought "Oh Hell NO!" Instead I took her to Weston. Weston is an old Missouri River town just a couple of blocks long with cute little shops and eating establishments. You see things there you never see elsewhere and we always have a great time. She always wants to go to Weston! I don't mind. So, yesterday she bought a few things and so did I! Here's most of what I bought.
A Bluebird for my living room.
A new Fairy named Jessie! So I won't forget when and where I bought her!
Another new fairy, named Annie. (Yes, Ann Campbell that's for you!)
This Irish blessing ornament which I put in my office.
I forgot to photograph the tiny bluebird (maybe 1/2 inch in size) I got for the dollhouse, the brown sugar bear that will keep it moist in the jar and the button I bought Jim that says
"I speak fluent blarney" cause he does!
We had a lovely, large lunch at the Avalon Cafe. Before we headed back to my house.
Then we all met up at my cousin Bruce's new house before going to dinner. I didn't contribute much to the dinner (nor eat much) as I'd developed a headache somewhere along the line. Bad enough that I considered skipping dinner! Then it was home and into bed with a puppy who was really glad her mom was home at last!
Today we met for lunch before they headed to the airport to go home. I feel like I've done nothing but eat this weekend! Really, had a fun time with them. After lunch, I hit the quilt shop. They aren't usually open on Sunday but every year on Superbowl Sunday they have a big sale. I did what I said I wouldn't do this time around on the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, I bought fat quarters in this months color-brown-as I really didn't have much. Having cut it all for a log cabin that is still in progress. Now, I'm taking myself off to the studio to sit and sew!
