Bargains and Bibs
After I returned from this coup, he and I went to the movies for the first time this year to see Wild Hogs. This movie is not high on the intellectual scale, but we laughed ourselves silly and enjoyed it immensely, especially the end. If you go to see this movie, do not leap up and leave the theater the minute the screen goes black because there are after scenes that run during the credits, and they are hilarious.
On Sunday we got to attend the milestone birthday celebration of his best friend from high school, Dennis M. It was held at a restaurant in Almond River, the same place we held EG's birthday party. It was really nice. The spouse gave the birthday toast and once again I was impressed at what a great extemporaneous speaker he is. This restaurant has an elegant buffet lunch, with prime rib, seafood, a breakfast buffet with mondo bacon and cheese blinzes, whipped cream etc, but more in its favor, it had a great dessert buffet with little tarts, puddings, and other elegant tidbits. You don't usually think of a buffet as classy (think Las Vegas), but it was.
Today I am making bread and working in the garden, and sewing on the green shirt for Melissa. I also started the ribbings for the dark red Fiesta top, and cut out some baby bibs. I decided to see how some of my stash of fabric samples would look as bibs, since some of the samples are children's theme fabrics. The answer is they look great, so I have 5 bibs cut out and ready to quilt.
We had fun watching Amazing Race last night, and though we never really liked Team Guido, I ended up liking how solid and committed a couple they were. Twenty years as a couple is a great achievement in any universe.
