Hi friends! How the heck are ya? Me? Pretty good, thanks. Let's see now. Thursday was Jacob's 19th birthday. Brian and I went out that night to the opening of Romeo & Juliet by the Milwaukee Ballet. The dancing was spectacular. Not so thrilled by the way they put their spin on it. They cheapened it. They threw in gestures, grabbing, gyrations and groping. Not tasteful at all. It made me a bit sad, as I have never witnessed a non-classy ballet. I much preferred the Romeo & Juliet we flew to Houston to see about 10 years ago.
Here is my progress from last weekend's addition to Mary's Sampler.
I also finished reading The Matters at Mansfield by Carrie Bebris. It was very good. I figured out who the killer was rather early on in the book. However, there were plot twists I could never have anticipated, so that is good. I am now reading The Intrigue at Highbury also by Carrie Bebris. These are part of a mystery series based on Mr. and Mrs. Darcy. If you are a Jane Austen fan, I think you would really enjoy these. I believe there are 6 in the series. I am almost done with the series now.
This is the birthday cake I made for Jacob. We are having a get together with family for him today. This is Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cake. He is a massive cookie dough fan.
I also made up some of these sweet, little acorns. Too cute!!
OH MY GOSH!!! I MEAN REALLY, CAN YOU NOT SEE THIS IN OUR FRONT YARD WITH MY PINK CHRISTMAS TREE AND PINK WREATH ON THE FRONT DOOR!! A 42 INCH LIGHTED CHRISTMAS POODLE!! AHH! I CAN'T STAND IT!! Too bad it is $119.99. And Brian said, "Um, are you kidding me?!"
I thank God for you my friends! Thanks for stopping by. Have a super, stitchtastic day!
Stitching and praying,
