Phew, what a weekend. Actually, it was almost relaxing – there wasn't much going on in the way of "plans". That never stops me from staying busy, though… Friday night the DH and I swung by Rafal's to say hi, then headed north to hang with ML and her man. It was a good time – an excellent dinner and an "interesting" movie. We watched "The Real Dirt about Farmer John". It was…well, kinda weird. There were definitely parts I liked, and definitely scenes I could have done without (such as watching John's mother die). Sad. Certainly not the flick for "date night".
My parents came to town…again. J They visit quite often. Nothing wrong with that; I like my parents…they just visit a LOT!!! Saturday morning, my mom and I checked out the Village Point Farmer's Market (I bought a jalepeno pepper seedling) and stopped into Harry and Davids to sample…well, everything. J They have chocolate-covered blueberries! Good stuff!!
I went on a bit of a fabric binge Friday after work, so while the DH and his band drove to Des Moines for a gig, and my parents headed south to visit my baby sister and nephew, I stayed home and sewed. Man, I live an exciting life. Home on a Saturday night, with my serger. Actually, it was great. I hadn't had a night home in well over a week, and since I'd been to two separate margarita-indulging events this week already, staying home was sublime. I finished one graphic-print knit dress and started in on a tank top…
The DH didn't get home until 5 AM Sunday morning, so I spent my morning putzing around, reading and waiting for him to wake up. After both of us had achieved full consciousness, we dropped off a Mom's Day gift at my MIL's house and headed to Film Streams to watch Chop Shop. It was a sad movie, IMO – about two orphan's in NYC trying to get by… To lift my spirits after the film, we stopped for sushi. J That always does the trick. J
Hope everyone had a great weekend – now here's to another busy week! Happy Monday! :P
