A Weekend for Wrapping Things Up

Wow, those aprons took a long time! I don't know what's wrong with my sewing machine, but it was very needy this time around. I had to oil it and rest it and talk nice to it the whole time. What should have taken about an hour took two full evenings. My sister asked me to make some aprons for a Julie/Julia Project party she is going. The weird picture of me up top is one of the aprons I came up with, after much ado.

Also done this weekend...the play!! Yay! I get my husband back! Actually, he didn't have to be at the church until about 5 on Saturday so I got to spend most of the day with him then. We went to breakfast-well, we went to Waterloo at noon and ordered breakfast-and then we shopped. We bought the stuff for the aprons and a really great bday present for my dad, (it's so perfect! But I don't know if he'll read this or not, so I can't say what it is) and a hummingbird feeder. Next weekend we have all to ourselves!! It's been a while!

These are pictures of things I would rather do tomorrow than go to work. It's too hot to leave the house! My hair totally looks like that when I wake up. Anybody got any white fences in fields I can climb? I'm gonna bring a quilt and seven books to read.

I have discovered blogs, and it's just in time. Michael turned on a pre-season football game tonight. I cringed and then decided to ignore the TV and focus on the great pictures I found on pinkwallpaper and all the blogs she follows. I love blogs! They're like magazines, but they just never end with all the different links, and most of them post new entries almost every day.

I do like to watch TV with Michael, and once football starts he really doesn't want to watch anything else. Actually, sitting on the couch with Michael is one of my favorite things to do; feels cozy. (We're so boring!) So our new laptop and a few good blogs to follow came just in time to save my Sunday afternoons.

Now Michael is trying to teach me something about football. Doesn't even sound like English sometimes.

I'm not sure if there are rules about posting other people's pictures so I'm going to put some of my own and maybe some of the ones I've liked from the blogs I've looked at so far. The first one is a dress I bought to wear when Michael and I go to New Orleans in October. The next is my favorite bridal portrait that I took of Christina (Kincaid) Freeman. The last one is from a blog. (sorry I don't remember which one - must've been one that Pink Wallpaper follows) I want to have a party in our backyard that looks like this! Michael is going to be so annoyed when I make him help me hang lights like that! ;)
