My mom can't come to the blog right now. She and my Aunt Chrissy are working off hangovers of epic proportions. Now, I would imagine that you're assuming that these would be real live hangovers caused by too much alcohol consumption (based upon the title of this post), but I'm afraid to report that they are actually....well...I can't believe that I'm going to tell you all this...
My mother and aunt are experiencing hangovers caused by the marathon viewing of almost every single episode of....the....
Real Housewives of New Jersey.
Yup. You guessed it. My stupid mo-ther and her sister are now knee-deep into the shenanigans of Caroline, Jacqueline, Dina, Teresa, and Danielle.
I can't stand it anymore.
I won't begin to tell you what they're thinking about doing tomorrow night, but let's just say it involved an email from my mom to my aunt with an invitation to a dinner that will consist of Italian sausage, potatoes, onions, and peppers on the grill, accompanied by a bottle of red.
My mother has decided to start drinking red wine.
Apparently she thinks this will get her more in touch with her Italian heritage.
I think it will get her more in touch with the Tylenol bottle.
On the stitchy front, there has been a lot of activity around here, but alas, I do not have any photographs for you. SOMEBODY forgot to re-charge the camera battery, so you'll have to make do with my descriptions.
Mom cleaned the studio to within an inch of its life yesterday, and I'm happy to report that everything is now back in its proper place. She put all of the random charts and threads and kits away and even managed to bring a SMALL basket of goodies downstairs for us to play with.
The new threads arrived for the Maggie canvas, and I heard Mom exclaim "These are EXACTLY what I was hoping for!", so methinks that one might see a little action tonight. She did manage to frog all of the offending beads and threads and I have to confess that it only took a few minutes to do so. I thought it would be an all day affair, but everything came out toot sweet.
Mom started Aunt Laura J. Perin's Daisy Chain last night and I have to say that I think this is my favorite piece in the stitchy basket. The colors are just lovely, and I'm thinking that I will hang this over my little bed after shopping for a new duvet cover to match.
That's the Tuesday report for now, my dear friends. I hope that you are fabulously happy today and that if you're in a steamy area of the big blue marble you're keeping cool and hydrated.
With love from your pal,
