Weekend Round Up

This weekend I spent much time, when I wasn't reading Breaking Dawn, stitching on Dragon Knot. Here is my progress:

I was on a great roll when I ran out of DMC thread 168. Of course I wouldn't have this in my extra stash. I had 169 but not 168! And it was already after 6 p.m. on Sunday so even Micheal's wasn't open! I did dash to Hobby Lobby today at lunch and made sure that I picked up enough through the rest of the pattern!

Hobby Lobby is having their final mark downs on Christmas items. 90% off! I was able to get next year's Christmas cards for $1.00! Yay!

This weekend I also went to Whole Foods. Do you have one by you? You should go. On Saturdays you can walk through and try different things that they have. I bought a smoothie while I was there that was quite tasty! It had mango, banana, strawberries, non-fat milk and pineapple juice! And on an impulse as I was having red beans and rice for dinner that night, I bought a box of their cream cheese biscuits. If you get a chance to try these, do it! They are one of the best biscuits I have ever eaten!

It was such a lovely quiet weekend. Stitching, reading and catching up on tv. I hope that future weekends are also like that, with the exception of next weekend. I hope thta I get a visitor! You know who you are!

Well, I am off to make dinner. I am determined to have a "decent" meal. I have ground italian sausage browning right now which I will add to a jar of spaghetti sauce that will go over penne pasta and a salad on the side. I really need to start eating better!
