All I wanted was some lousy Chinese food to celebrate the New Year. So Aunt Chrissy and Bosco come over and we call our favorite place and.....wait for it.....THEY ARE CLOSED. ON CHINESE NEW YEAR.
Now I'm not insensitive enough to assume that a Chinese establishment should forego their holiday just to feed me, but this place is owned and operated by a POLISH guy from South Bend. Unless he is of mixed heritage, I am completely unsure as to why he would decide to close on Chinese New Year.
So we re-heated chicken wings and I bitched and moaned and complained until Aunt Chrissy and Bosco left me to my own devices.
I worked on "The Riddle" while cursing the TeeVee (not a darn thing on), and I managed to get a fair amount completed. I'm still really enjoying this, and hope to continue doing so for a few more days.
My intentions of going upstairs to do some massive stash purging/re-organizing was foiled by...ALL OF YOU! I sat down to "just read a few blogs" and four hours later I was still oogling and drooling over all of the wonderful work that you're doing out there in Cyber Stitchy Ville. I am continually amazed and inspired by your work and enthusiasm for this little art form of ours, and I can't help but wonder how I got so lucky as to be invited to sit at the table. Let's just say that y'all ROCK and I am like a little kid each day as I greedily page through all that you've done overnight.
I spent the morning daydreaming about Spring Cleaning. Yup. I did. I am determined to take my house apart room by room this year and get it in some kind of order. Oh, and maybe paint. And re-carpet. Definitely re-carpet (thanks to you-know-who). If he's really good and stops peeing on everything, I might actually get him a new toy or two, despite the seven-foot high pile of toys he has now and doesn't play with. Damn dog.
Stay warm and safe and dry today, kids. It's cloudy and pretty cold here today, so methinks some Happy Chair time with a blanket and some stitching might be necessary. Toodle ooo!
