Great Grandma finally got to meet Little Luke Ozzie on Saturday. She probably spent about an hour just holding him. He was a little "gassy", so she used all her motherly skills to calm him and finally got him to sleep. Once they get much older...they get too big for her to hold, so this time when they are little is very special to her.
(Caity is probably going to yell at me about posting her picture, but I like this picture.)
Also got to finish another card that I wanted to share. This one was for my dear sister's birthday. I struggled with this card. The first version ended up in the trash can. I knew what I wanted to do, but I didn't have the right stamp. So I picked up this one with the flower and the writing in the background and then everything fell into place. I stamped it with VersaMagic in Eggplant and then I embossed it in clear to give it that extra pop.
I got another square done on my sampler. Two more and I'll have the first row done. Still enjoying this project although I'm not able to do a square a day. More like a couple squares a week, so it will be a while before it's finished.
I didn't do much cooking this week-end, but just got back from the grocery store where I picked up some of the basics. I was planning on buy some ground round to make a final pot of chili for the season (it's still a little chilly out today). I got home and realized that I completely forgot the ground round.
Do you ever do that? Go to the store for something in particular, get distracted by everything else...and forget the main thing. Makes me crazy. I've actually gotten to my car, remembered something, gone back in to get in...got back to my car again and remembered something else and gone back in AGAIN. I have to admit, I went to different cashiers so they didn't think I was a complete space cadet.
Fortunately, I did buy a few other things, so I guess I'll be making my quick Tortellini in Pomodoro Sauce tonight. Always a good standby to have on hand.
Hope your week-end was as nice as mine.
