Short Weekend

This weekend just seemed to fly by! I sure didn't want to go to work today. I don't feel like I accomplished a whole lot, but that's the way it goes. Fri. night I toom my mom's Jacket class. I got to the sleeves, so will have to put those in, do the hem, and do buttons and buttonholes in the next class on Fri. night and be done. It is turning out real cute, but definately not my normal colors. It's a lime green, orange, and purple.

I got home just before Paul did. He went to Orman Dam ice fishing with his friend Jory. They decided to go to Angostora Lake Sat. morning, so Paul was up at 3:30 and left before 5 to meet him. I went to work at 9 and it was almost 5 when I got out of there. I stopped by Hancock's for their 50% off notions deals and then went home. Mom called and I visited with her while she was driving home. I sewed, but had trouble with the zipper on my towne purse, so quit. I think I need to use the walking foot, but that doesn't really work with the zipper, so haven't figured out how I am going to put it in. Paul got home about 7PM and we got ready and went out to supper. We were going to go to a movie, but we were both tired, so we went home.

Sunday we were up early, then had lunch and naps before going to town for groceries. We stopped by and dropped off more purple ribbon with my aunt for the flowers and then looked at Paul's birthday present choices. He wants a new scroll saw, but has been researching and trying to decide which one he wants. We did our Wal-mart, Sams Club, and Safeway shopping in under an hour and a half, so we were both pleased. We got home just in time to unload all the groceries in the rain. It rained most of the evening and then snowed on top of it. We had supper and then I visited with both my brothers and Mom. I tried my zipper again, but it gave me fits, so I just gave up. Figured maybe it would work tonight. I hate when it doesn't go right and I can't really do anything else until I figure it out.
