A couple of weeks ago, I got a frantic phone call from my mom. And one from KT. Wanting to know if I had read the horribly scary, nasty comment from Anonymous at the end of the post where I shared a picture of our house. They were very concerned.
I went and read the comment and had a very sneaky suspicion it might have been hubby toots.
Well, he confessed last night. So Mom, KT and anyone else who was a little freaked out, try living with him 24/7/365! Now you know where my boys get it from and why there's more gray in my hair than there ought to be!
It also might be why he may not make it to his birthday next year! LOL
We celebrated hubby funny's special day on Sunday with his side and my side of our families. Two parties in one day! Crumbly coffee cake for his parents' house and chocolate, chocolate for the Easter celebration at my sister's house.
All week, chef Dee called him at work and asked his preference for a favorite or appetizing meal of his choice for that night. Chicken Parmasagn. Pizza. Cinnamom and vanilla French toast. Among other tasty culinary delights.
Last night we went to Ruby Tuesday's and split the steak and lobster meal and he got a free sundae for his special day! Home then with the boys and a candle on the birthday cupcake. The "Happy Birthday" song and an evening watching "The Unit".
Happy the Day After your Birthday honey!
I'm sure my mom will forgive you if you don't do it again!
Knowing KT, she'll probably kick yer lil' fanny!
Fabric that Sharon from ISQ's bee sent us. This is super confectionary sweet fabric for her block for April. She's asking for 1-2 blocks of gnome homes for her quilt. I'm so excited! This is going to be fun!
My Friday Finish this week is to have all the vintage blocks sewn together. The heart I'd made turned out to be the perfect size to sew into the middle of them all! This will be a twin size cuddly quilt for us when all is said and done.
I just need some suggestions on the outside sashing for this. It's such a mix of vintage quilty color, I'm at a loss as to what to use. Any suggestions?
Another Friday Finish will be next week's starter project. The three walls I was hoping to have done in order to paint the ceiling and then move onto the walls themselves, are done. Woo hoo! Somewhere about mid-week, I discovered that if you take the shop vac (turned on, mind you) with you as you sand, it sucks up almost all of the dust and you don't scare the garage door repairman into thinking you're a sickly white vampire or ghost. Such a
slow smart cookie I am!
Don't forget to go to Amy's blog and check out the other fantastic Friday Finishes there. I'm heading over here in just a second.
Leaving you with C-man's
art Algebra project. His cirriculum includes manipulatives and this week he was learning to build equations such as X squared + 4X + 10 in three dimensions. He got a little sidetracked and made me this bridge:
his interpretation of the Golden Gate Bridge. Please notice the Hot Wheels car tooling along at high speeds. LOL
Who says homeschooling isn't any fun?
Have a great weekend and sing a happy song today!
