Sunday’s Stitches & Stuff – Episode 20

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Here in NC, we had a fabulous holiday. My parents were able to join us once again this year and Thanksgiving dinner was healthy & delicious, thanks to the wonderful recipes in Lindsay Nixon’s cookbook: Happy Herbivore Holidays & Gatherings.

In addition, hubby and I celebrated Black Friday, as we always do, with our traditional mid-day movie outing. This year we saw Murder On The Orient Express. What a fabulous movie! I cannot say enough about how much I enjoyed this adaptation of Agatha Christie’s beloved story. If you have not had the chance to see it, I would say this movie is not to be missed. Now let’s move on to a few other activities from the week.

What I’m Stitching

Thankfully, I have not tired of my Happily Ever After piece, because I am still working on this stitch a long. This week I finished the July motif, The Wind In The Willows, and moved on to Aladdin and the Enchanted Lamp, released in August. Here are some progress pics:

My progress is fairly steady and I’d like to finish this row of motifs before our trip to PA in 2 weeks.

What I’m Reading

As you read this post, I should be cracking the spine on Never Let You Go by Chevy Stevens. Although I still have a few chapters left in Stalking Jack the Ripper (look for a review in the coming week), Never Let You Go is the book for my mystery book club which meets on Thursday. Therefore I am going to dedicate Sunday afternoon to reading this book. Hopefully the zoo will stay quiet while I am.

What I’m Watching

This week I’ve been rewatching Castle. There were no new shows or other TV series that really peaked my interest and, with the holiday, I had a lot of work to do this week. Having something I’m already familiar with on the TV was less distracting allowing me to work and watch. Unfortunately, this show is not available on the major streaming venues. Hubby & I really liked it so we collected the DVD sets.

Weekly Highlights

Naturally, the highlight of this week was having my parents down for the holiday. It was great to spend time with them and enjoy each other’s company. As a bonus, our doggies did not have to be crated for our movie outing, the “grand parents” watched them. As you can see from the picture they were in good company, four legged and two legged creatures sleeping soundly.

That’s all for now I hope you have a great week and thanks for taking the time to read my post.
