Friday Again & Flowers!

Wow! How did it get to be Friday again?!?! I'm pretty sure I missed a few days this week - which would explain the lack of posts! And the weather has been unkind to a warmth-loving summer girl, so I think I went into hibernation mode again! SIGH! Can't wait til the warm weather is here to stay! Someone said the other day it will only be a month or two before we're complaining about the heat - nuh, ah!! Not this little black duck!!

So ... as a result of the icky weather and me being a slug, not much has happened on the stitching front this week except a few little finishing touches to the bag swap bits - you'll have to wait another day or so before I get a photo of the whole kit and caboodle I'm sending off. (Note to those who read my questioning of what "kit and caboodle is" - I googled it! Kit is a collection of tools and caboodle is an archaic term for a large group, gathering or gang of people - mystery solved!)

The flowers mentioned in the title arrived on my desk at work yesterday. Now any of you who are married or have partners will know that even if you other half is 'perfect for you', it doesn't make them 'perfect' and there will always be little hiccups, misunderstandings and temper tantrums. Well, we had one of those in our house on Wednesday and this is where GB ended up - again!!

Yep ... back in the dog house! So on Thursday, this is what landed on my desk with a card that said, "With love from the doghouse!"

They are gorgeous, aren't they? I particularly love the red roses and gerberas with the deep purples and bright yellows. SIGH! Well, I couldn't stay mad with him after that, could I? So I sent him a text message to say, "OK, the flowers get you back inside as far as the sofa!!" Tee! Hee! Hee! Can't make it too easy for him!! Nah, all is well. We sorted out the misunderstanding, which was a 'he says' 'she says' kind of deal and we're back on smooching terms. Oops! Too much information for some, perhaps!!

So, that's the sort of week it's been here at the Meares' Madhouse. I'm hoping that I'll be able to motivate myself to knuckle down over the weekend and get a few things done - got the Bag Swap stuff to pack up ready to send off on Monday, need to get stuck into the three sewing bits for the Stitchers Angel and start thinking about the Secret Santa Christmas Swap - oh and try to get my Angel Bears pattern printed and packaged ready for a give-away, and stitch the latest block for Lynette's BOM .... Hmmmm ... getting the feeling that I need a weekend that consists of about 14 days!!! Ah well, will make a list and start at the top to work my way through. And whatever doesn't get done today, will just carry through to tomorrow's list!! I'll get there ... eventually!! Hope you have a fantastic and productive weekend too - Bear Hugs!

Poor GB - he really is having a hard time of it. The flowers are beautiful so I don't suppose you could stay mad at him forever.

Enjoy your weekend and I hope you get some time to work on your sewing projects.

My goodness! So curious! But glad GB not in strife, and had such a graceful way of apology.

Must be off. bedtimes!!!

Hi Kris,
I'm with you, bring on Summer! I love the flowers. There's no point in me sending my hubby to the doghouse, he would just go sleep in his truck and the inside is even nicer then my house, not to mention he has TV, DVD, Fridge and aircon and no children or nagging wife to annoy him.
Cheers Linda
