A beautiful day

It was 63F when I got up at 8AM, the sun was already out so I can imagine what the temp was at 5AM, too bad I missed it. 65 is my threshold for cold, that's when I put on long pants and a jacket.

The San Man SAL starts today! We're stitching a pattern called Oh Holly Night and it's so cute. I am going to stitch mine on a piece of light green hand dyed evenweave with different hand dyed flosses. I am going to stitch a little bit more on my Feb. Heart Sampler during the day and I'll start my SAL project tonight.

Yesterday was the Superbowl football game in the US but it didn't start here until 2:30 AM so I didn't stay up and watch it. It will probably be on at least another 2 times during the day here.

It was a beautiful day! Not hot, sunny but a few clouds, a slight cool breeze so I packed up my stitching and sat on the patio and stitched for 3 hours and finished up up the stitching part on my February Heart Sampler. All I have to do is fold it and hem stitch it all around.

While I was reading one of my messaage boards, my cell phone rang which was unusual since my husband was home and he's the only one that calls me, there was no call # but I answered it anyway. One of the ladies from my cross stitch message called me all the way from North Carolina!! What a huge surprise! She is such a sweet lady to call me. She got a new phone service and gets very cheap phone rates so she called me! We had a very nice conversation and she made my day!

Another nice surprise from my husband yesterday. He went to the grocery store to get food for supper and bought me a cute little Italian Christmas cake. It's like a stollen and he knows I love them. This was a tiny little box compared to the normal huge boxes they usually have. What a sweet guy!

I cooked fish & chips, mushy peas and onion rings for supper. Another 2 1/2 hour ordeal but I can say it turned out better than supper the night before. I thought I would be cute and I served my husbands dinner wrapped in newspaper in a basket. He thought it was cute too but the fish tasked yucky. I don't know what was wrong with it but I think it was the fish itself.

All in all, it was a SUPER GREAT day yesterday and it felt so good!
