Date night did not turn out as anticipated. It has been awhile since one of our evenings went astray but thankfully not as astray as the movie "Date Night". We did get to see Identity Thief and it was just as funny as we anticipated. The only bad thing was the family sitting next to us who decided to bring 3 small children. I'm talking 1 baby and 2 under 4. The adults were interacting with the baby and small children talking as if they were sitting in their own living room. Grrrrrr!
After that we decided we didn't have enough time to eat at the Food Court and then see a second movie so thought we would go somewhere to have a nice sit down supper. BIG OLD WRONG!! Every place we tried had people waiting out the door for a table. Ended up at a small south side Mexican Restaurant with immediate seating. It was an early evening as we were home by 8:30 PM. Oh well it was just nice for me to have a break from nursing the sick. BTW Keith is doing much better. Still has a bit of a cough and drippy nose but let me tell you his activity is certainly back to normal.
I spent this morning getting all the information together for our appointment this week with our accountant to do taxes. Ugggh! It is one of the tasks I detest but unfortunately must be done. Now that I have removed that big old weight from my shoulders I can now move on to laundry - yippee! I'm saying that sarcastically in case you are wondering.
The picture is from Fons and Porter. It was a huge double sized wooden cubby where they store fat quarters. I would settle for a one sided one of my very own. One of these days I will be at the lumber yard picking up the wood to make one of these. I wonder where Bill keeps the saws?
This morning I also gathered my supplies together to roll out a batch of egg noodles. My local grocery store has started selling a Turkey Roast that is just perfect for making delicious homemade turkey and noodles. I'm afraid I'm a bit of a noodle snob. My mom always made her own homemade noodles and there is no worthy store bought substitute as far as I'm concerned. See I told you I was a noodle snob. Just like previous generations of women in my family I received my rolling pin from my mom when I got married and have been using it every since - 31 years to be exact. I learned the "art" of making noodles from my mom while still in elementary school. I think it is another one of those home skills like needlework being lost as the younger generations just are not interested/don't have time. Some of my fondest memories with my mom were in the kitchen "helping" her cook/bake. I don't know if the women today know what special memories they are missing a chance to create!
I also got to remove LHN - Sarah Street from my WishList as my friend, Harriet, stitched it already and has loaned me her copy. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!
