I decided to take a half day off work on Friday… It was a rainy afternoon so IMO a perfect afternoon for taking a nap and doing some stitching until DBF got home.
DBF and I went to his son’s football game on Friday night. Not really my thing, but I wanted to get out and spend some time with DBF and I usually like to go to one or two of his games. His son is a Junior at Penn High school, but is starting on the varsity team so it was all very exciting for DBF and his son. It was a nice night – pleasant for being outside. Penn lost the game, but his son performed well.
Saturday we got up early and drove to Chicago. We met up with DBF’s brother and his wife and went to see the Jeff Koons exhibition at the Chicago Museum of Contemporary Art. It was a good (intresting) exhibit and we walked through the rest of the museum as well. I’m really only good for 90 minutes at most in museums, so the smaller size of this museum was perfect and in general I preferred it to the Art Institute exhibits.
We next went to Stubbs coffee shop to suprise his sister who had an art exhibit opening that day. She was doing a joint art show with her DBF, so it was fun to hang out with them. DBF ended up buying one of her paintings, we headed to Trader Joes to stock up on our favorite stuff, then headed home and relaxed.
Today was chore day – shopping, cleaning, etc, and I got a lot more stitching done. Here is my latest progress on LHNs’ Thread Gathering…
The majority of my progress was the border, but I’ll probably at least finish the lettering tonight while watching the Olympic Closing Ceremonies.
I’ve been nominated for three separte blog awards, but as yet, have not figured out how to get the logos into a post. So… if you’ve nominated me, thank you and please know I’m not ignoring you. I’m still working on it!
Lastly, I got a snapshot this afternoon of one of our cats, Tater, hanging out in the kitty fort. He is such a sweet and affectionate cat…
