Another Random Thursday

I have been busy spending time with my family.  I love the holidays for that.  They force us to be together (I mean that in a good way) and we always have such a good time. 

So my daughter, Angela, and I took off shopping on Black Friday.  Now we are the worst shoppers!  We did get up and at the stores by 5:30 am but when we saw those long, long lines to pay - we dropped our items & left!  LOL  Is that so funny or what?  

So instead we went to Denny's sat and talked, drank hot chocolate and coffee.  We are really good at that!  

I'll tell you what we did get - BUTTONS!

Oh my gosh I LOVE these JC Penny's buttons.  
On the back is a code to enter for prizes.  I really don't care about that. I'm thinking I can collect enough to make an Count down to Christmas calendar or Mark suggested I make him a stocking using them.  Hmmmm....I have a much better idea for a stocking for him.  I'll share that with you in my next post.
Isn't this coal one so adorable?

Besides shopping we went camping and since we were close, we visited the San Miguel Mission.
Funny, I was here as a teenager and I certainly don't remember any of this.  I think as we get older we appreciate things more. I think as a teen I just wanted to go visit with my friends - not see a mission. 
Isn't this the neatest wagon - check out that handmade wooden wheel. I love the cactus too.
Here's the fountain. After we left the mission we went to a deli (great food there) and an artist had just finished painting (she was cleaning up her paint supplies) a mural of this fountain and the red flowers on the deli wall. 

As my parting photo - I give you the tongue.  There was something about this tongue.  It just simply would not stay in Troy's mouth, no matter how many times I said "Stop sticking out your tongue!"  LOL!!

Happy Stitching!

Happy Thanksgiving

I want to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving today.  Tomorrow, I'll be busy with family and not even remember that I own a computer. 

This year I will not be having Thanksgiving a my house, but I'll be going to my son in law's grandparents.  It will be nice to only make one dish instead of the whole dinner.

And then on Friday I have big plans... 
Shopping with my daughters.   What I actually think will happen is we will shop one store and then end up at Starbucks!  We aren't good shoppers - we are good talkers!!  LOL

I'm hoping to do a bit of sewing...but with all the company around, I'm not counting on it.

I do hope you have a most pleasant Holiday.

Happy Thanksgiving!!

Really Randon Thursday

It's Really Random Thursday.  To start off I'm going to tell you what I love about Chick-Fil-A.  Beside the chicken sandwiches of course. 

They have fresh flowers on the tables

and best of all BENDY STRAWS!
I'm such a kid at heart, I just insist I get a bendy straw when I go. 

I know I should stay out of the fabric store. Every time I go in there I end up buying something.  Always! 
And no surprise, this time I found the PERFECT fabric for Christmas gift for my Mom.

I thought it would be perfect for some pillowcases. 
I easily found some fabrics to go with it. 

And speaking of finding, I found this old picture of one of our puppies.
