- celebrated my anniversary with dinner at a restaurant who's motto was "Love is...getting fat together. So eat more!" (We did not know this when we planned to eat there.)
- taking my second oldest niece to a minor league ball game in Delaware that went on f.o.r.e.v.e.r.
- making potato salad and watermelon feta salad (really, try it!) for Sunday dinner
- having my hair done
Can that be it? Because I feel like I was run off my feet between last Wednesday and this! I'm sure there were lots of little things to do that didn't even make it to the calendar.
Today, I continued work on Shining Star while I was getting a pedicure. The manicurist, who did not speak English as a first language, asked me about my stitching.
Mani: You must have so much patience.
(I've talked about this before here.)
Mani: How long have you been working on this?
Me: This piece, or cross stitch generally?
Me: 25 years.
Mani: You could be a teacher. Teach kids. You don't see that many people doing this now. Mostly old ladies, retired ladies.
Wow--two of my pet peeve stereotypes in one short conversation!
