Happy Mother’s Day weekend! I, for one, started celebrating on Wednesday because one day is just not enough time to do all the things I want to do on Mother’s Day! 🙂 If I was truly honest, it’s not the time – I just don’t like being in crowds. I don’t like to wait in lines to eat so I’ll celebrate before or after instead of the day of. I’ll probably work and quilt on the actual day…
And it seemed the universe found ways to prevent me from celebrating. On Wednesday I took the afternoon off to have High Noon Tea with my mother. Well, to make a short story shorter – it didn’t happen. I won’t go into all the gory details why. It wasn’t medical – she’s fine, I’m fine, everyone’s fine. It just didn’t happen. Then since I was so disappointed that it didn’t happen, I decided to get a massage at our favorite Thai Massage place. I invited the hubby along since he likes to get them too. I made an appointment for Thursday evening and when we got there, they were full. Apparently, the person I made the appointment with didn’t write it down. Who knows what really happened… but we didn’t get a massage. 🙁 🙁 Last night we ate at Thanh Long, which is a great crab place in San Francisco. I loved the crab. We had an early dinner at 5:30 and then made our way over to Schulzie’s to try the Bread Pudding my cousin raved to me about. It was okay but it was cold. I probably should have asked for them to warm it but I didn’t even consider the option until I was outside and took a bite. While we were there though, we realized that the family and I had gone to the Schulzie’s in Venice Beach, CA. I went through old pix on FB and found the pictures we took when we were there. It’s really a small world. 🙂 Then we walked a block to catch the Clipper/OKC game at a nearby Sports Bar. It was amazing to me to be in a Sports Bar and NO ONE actually watching Sports. I guess that’s how its done. There were not a lot of seats and I couldn’t hear the game. We headed home at half time to watch the rest of it. Too bad the Clippers lost. It was a good game though.
So today – what is on the docket?
I’ve got a Guild workshop on Applique to go to! I have to run to the store to get some last minute supplies but I’ll be spending most of my Saturday learning new to me Applique techniques. I’m excited. I love the look of Applique but it takes forever for me to do since I do it by hand. So I’m excited to learn different methods. I have tried different methods. I researched online and worked with starch and glue and probably other things that I now can’t remember. I stuck with needle turn because it required the least amount of prep and really ended up being much faster for me to do. However, I’m hoping taking this class will teach me something I don’t know. I haven’t tried machine applique and that’s probably going to be the funnest part for me.
Tomorrow is pretty open! – Quilting, Working, putting around the house (my favorite way to spend a day). We’ll be heading off to Los Angeles on Monday so I’ll be packing and getting myself together for the trip as well.
