Lots of work bother. What else is new??
Valentine's Day--very nice dinner, wine, and dessert at home with S.on the Friday before V-day.
On Valentine's Day itself (should have seen this coming since it was a Monday...), experienced the joy of a plumbing repair bill due to tree roots growing in the main sewer drain line and causing "issues". Now I usually do my own plumbing repairs but this was a little beyond my DIY capabilities as it required a big machine to go into the pipe and cut and pull out roots through the bathroom. Lovely--not. I am rethinking joining the plumber's union.
I finally saw the movie The Social Network. Great movie but not Oscar worthy IMO. My vote is still True Grit although I haven't seen The King's Speech yet.
The cats did lots of this as always. Although it is unusual to have all four of them in one spot.
Fat Quarter Shop delivery of some wonderful Kate Spain Central Park fabric and the pattern for the Eventide quilt along. I think I'll use a fq bundle from my stash and I'll dig it out and post on Tuesday.
this Wikipedia link has some great photos.
It snowed again with a light dusting and now it's 70F. Global weirding at its finest.
I missed all my sewing friends who were at retreat last weekend. Maybe I can get wait-listed again for next year.
Texting with my old phone was time-consuming, to put it lightly, with the standard phone keypad (but I did it with proper punctuation because I'm a grammar nerd!). So I decided to jump into the whole smartphone scene.
I am now crazy obsessed with my new toy and its inky black screen
and I just love that it came in its own cute little sarcophagus (am I the only person that was reminded of sarcophagi when this arrived? wonder what the Apple marketing people would think???)
This whole smartphone thing is great (yes I know everyone else on the planet already knows this...). It's like having a little personal assistant. I wanted to name my new assistant iVan (get it iVan the iPhone haha! I crack myself up) or maybe iGor (pronounced eye-gore) but S. thought that was just silly. OK please tell me someone else out there has a name for their smartphone...
Of course having this phone probably means I'll just be taking even more photos of the cats. I'm such a nerd.
But a nerd with apps!
