Lunch today was great! I asked hubby to cook- not wanting take out lunch again. So we had bbbq chicken breasts with couscous. Yum!

And then, and then- hubby jumped up from the table, in the middle of lunch, because he had forgotten something! He rushed from the room, coming back with a bouquet of flowers in a vase. :) Just because he saw them when he was at the grocery store and thought I would like them. *beams* He's the best. And yes, I do love them- the vase is purply-pink and so are all the flowers!

Then! the mail-lady showed up with more presents! The t-shirt and travel mug I ordered from NaNo showed up. And are very cool. AND I got the tank tops I ordered from Coldwater Creek (they're the kind with the shelf bra in them... and the one I have from there is getting a bit worn out. I wear it all the time, very comfy to lounge around the house in/sleep in.) arrived! Wow. Oh, and the tanks were originally $24 something and I paid $11 each. :) Go me! Thirdly! Yes, there was a thirdly, I was stunned! The cross stitch fabric I bought from [livejournal.com profile] geekjul arrived! (oh, and [livejournal.com profile] geekjul they're beautiful! Thanks. :) )

So yeah, many packages. This does NOT happen every month much less every day. I am a very happy Anne, and will be lounging comfortably, drinking my coffee in an 'author' mug, and stitching this weekend! *laughs* While admiring my lovely flowers of course! (I brought them to work because a certain Leopolde Allen Fogg would chew on them if I didn't. He is also the reason the hubby had originally put them in the closet and had to retrieve them when I got home...)

It's a wonderful beginning to the weekend (even if I have to be at work for a leeetle while longer. :) )

I hope everyone has a very enjoyable rest of the day and weekend!

Okay, so here's the plan! If you want to go- please comment here. We'll meet at my place around 9:30 ([livejournal.com profile] cjtremlett, we'll come get you, don't worry. :) ) and then head down to Battle Creek. (should take about an hour from my place)

Sound workable?

fun fun!

I win a door prize! :) (from the Shop Hop)

So... anyone want to go with me to the Flying Stitch (in Battle Creek)??
jadecat: (Autumn Queen)
Was very busy... But fun. It was Shop Hop time! Basically, 7 cross stitch stores around lower Michigan participate in the event. Shoppers visit each store and get their 'passports' stamped, at the last store they turn their passports in and get a chance at a grand prize- each store has in store drawings too.

The travelers on this adventure were [livejournal.com profile] sarbah77, [livejournal.com profile] losgunna, [livejournal.com profile] crwilley, and your correspondent. Saturday morning, way, way too early (I really don't like seeing 5:30 am on a Saturday...) we headed off! The mission- five cross stitch stores starting in Plainwell and ending in Tecumseh. Oh, and a stop at Sweetwater's Donut Mill. :)

We got to Plainwell in good time, thanks to [livejournal.com profile] sarbah77 driving, and [livejournal.com profile] crwilley for getting all the Google maps! The store was nice- a good place to start. I ended up getting several patterns that were marked down to $1. :) This was good. Well, for them. ;) I wouldn't mind going back there. Next was Kalamazoo... Yeah, not some place I would go back to. Just... no. But we saw four women who had been at the Plainwell store... Then it was time to go to Jackson, with a brief stop for lunch and donuts!! Fabulous, yummy donuts.

Hmm, I'm thinking about this, and am missing a store location. *laughs* I can remember four of the five we went to. Huh. Jackson was the one with the scary owners- right? K-zoo was the non-clean one. Tecumeh was the nifty one where I got the Nancy's Needle design... Where was the one with the cookies? (the first place with cookies)

Anyway. It was fun, but made for a long day. We returned to Ann Arbor, [livejournal.com profile] sarbah77 and [livejournal.com profile] crwilley went home, and [livejournal.com profile] losgunna and I crashed at her parents place. We also contacted Mrs. M. who lives nearby and had a stitch-n-bitch. :) This of course meant we stayed up later than we had intended. But it was for a good cause. ;)

Middle of the night the migraine hit. :( A shower in the morning helped, and the breakfast we had at the shiny new IHOP went a long way towards recovery- but per usual- it was the Zomig that did the trick. There were only two stores left, but one was in Grand Blanc. We made good time, and found that this store was mostly a fiber store- lots of things, but nearly no patterns. Except for the needlework stamped patterns, and I'm not really interested in those. The last store was in Royal Oak, a cute little shop- but I think at that point I was just all shopped out. I was ready to head for home and see my hubby and the furry ones. It was there when I went to turn in my passport that we realized that one of the stores had missed stamping it! Luckily they noted that I had bee there with [livejournal.com profile] losgunna and were cool with it. I was willing to show them my sales receipt too! *laughs*

We parted with [livejournal.com profile] losgunna there, and headed back so I could get my car and [livejournal.com profile] sarbah77 and [livejournal.com profile] crwilley could go home. My drive was good, quick though as I was in something of a hurry...

Got home, walked the Kyle, for which he was most grateful. Then crawled in bed with the snoozing hubby for an hour. Leo joined us and HAD to bathe my arm... according to hubby it was because he missed me. Aww. Then he had to go to work. :( But I spent the evening just doing lots of nothing. Was good. This morning was another migraine. *laughs* Almost seems like a hangover- save for the not having had the drinking fun the night before... Oh well. I went home for lunch and took a 25 minute nap with the hubby. That really helped, though I didn't want to get up afterward... tonight we're heading somewhere for dinner, and then lots of nothing. I'm looking forward to it. :)

Plus I have to show off all the nifty stuff I got...

Oh, and just to pimp for views...
Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today! Adopt one today!
And NEW autumn dragon eggses: ETA- nevermind, apparently TJ took them away...
so I bred for a black:Adopt one today!

This weekend- shall we plan for 10:30 am? (which we all know to tell Anne that it's actually 10am)

That work?

As I said, the Queen is completed- behind the cut are some pictures, rather large ones at that.

Her Majesty, the Autumn Queen )
