Notre Dame game, spaghetti and meatballs, salad, bread, and Goofy Juice in my sippy cup.

All brought to me on a tray.

In the Happy Chair.

With explicit instructions that I was not to do anything except "Sit, stitch, eat, and watch your team."

Misses Jane and Charlene surprised me with a visit this afternoon after their trip to the House of Stitches, and I got gifts and the stamp of approval on my Jersey Boy.  It was stealthy, I tell ya.  Charlene called as I was napping to tell me that they had gifts, were on their way home, and that they would be here in a few minutes.  (She's a mom and not to be deterred, and I suspect that Miss Jane pointed her vee-hickle in this direction and there was no arguing with them.)

Methinks we passed inspection, and as I told them in my follow-up email after they left, I think dear Rich was relieved to finally meet back-up in the event that I require additional supervision.

A bit punk physically, but a good hot scrubby shower, some flannel jams, and now some stitchy time are all that I needed to make me feel almost fully human and ready for tomorrow.

At 2:00 tomorrow afternoon, I will go to the Jewish Federation for a reception for the needlework exhibit, and I will try not to chatter like a circus monkey, eat too many cookies, or drink too much punch.  Rich will stay home to watch the Eagles and there's a promise of another dinner in the Happy Chair for being a big girl and doing something besides staring at him, trying to anticipate his every need.

So that's it for now, my Dearies.  The only thing missing from my day was Stewey and my fireplace with a cozy fire blazing away.  Maybe someday...

Happy Saturday night, friends!  Do something fun and come tell me all about it!


  1. Sounds like a good day today and a good plan for tomorrow.

    Inquiring minds want to know: what is Goofy Juice? Surely not alcohol. Wine?

    Susan aka Anonymouse

    1. Goofy Juice = Crystal Lite Cherry Pomegranate with a slice of lemon and lots of ice.


    2. Sounds as good as wine - almost!

  2. Sounds like you had a great day!

  3. Sounds like you and the Jersey boy have been blessed by the those that matter.

  4. Cherry pomegranate is my favourite! Must try with a slice of lemon.

  5. Fun, fun, fun. Tomorrow will be awesome!

  6. Sounds like Jersey Boy is a keeper...I am so happy you have someone looking out for you in the times you feel ill...enjoy Coni!! xxoo

  7. I want one of what you had -- spaghetti, bread and salad. Have a good outing!

    d______ed.... Enjoy, dear one. Love that delightful new

  9. Sounds absolutely perfect. My heart is happy for you :)

  10. Please excuse my impertinence, but I was looking at the white dishes you featured in your spaghetti and meatballs picture, and they look like what I'm having trouble finding--fairly small and simply shaped. Do you remember who makes them or where you bought them? Leave it to someone who is so precise in her stitching to have found the perfect plates! TIA Judi

  11. Judi! Thank you for noticing my dishes! They are by Gordon Ramsey and I got them at the Bed Bath and Beyonds with a coupon! I believe the color/style name is Maze?
