Sunny Sunday With My Sweetie!!

Here we are, Monday has rolled around again and we all had to drag ourselves out of bed to toodle off to work with eyes half shut cos we didn't go to bed as early as we keep telling ourselves we should ... or maybe that's just ME! Tee! Hee! Hee! Another cold start to the week, though we did have a brief respite over the weekend, with sunny, slightly warmer days. So what's a gal to do on a sunny Sunday, but convince her Sweetie that it's a nice day for a drive. :0)

My very own Sweetie (A.K.A My Beloved Geek Boy!!) and I both had a few errands to run, so we got those out of the way quickly before heading north to Highfields and Cabarlah for our Sunday drive. Now, if you're like me, you have 'favourite' shops ... places you just LOVE to visit, even if it's only to look. Well, one of MY favourite shops moved a while back and I hadn't had the chance to call in for a visit since, so this was the perfect time. Oh the pretties I can find at Vintage Primrose!!!! There were so MANY lovely things I would have loved to bring home, but I confined myself to a few small treasures ...

 ... FIVE new treasures, in fact ... which I forgot to get a 'before' photos of  - OOPS! Also, please excuse my 'flower arranging' ... I come from the "pick & plonk" or "snip & stuff" school of flower art! :0) It's just one of those skills that elude me!! However ... it will show you one of the many uses I thought of for my new treasures ... a pale pink Depression Glass vase and four little cut glass jugs. I just couldn't pass them up and for $5 each, I thought they were sweet bargain additions to our decor. I suppose you could even use them to POUR stuff if you wanted to be really radical! Tee! Hee! Hee!

Now, searching for treasures can cause you to work up an appetite, so we looked for somewhere to grab lunch, finally deciding to try somewhere new. We made ourselves comfy amidst the bright Mexican colours of "Colours Of San Cris" at Cabarlah. Not only do they offer delicious meals for very reasonable prices, they have a huge range of Mexican/tribal influenced goodies for sale that create a colourful and fun setting for lunch ...

Here's my Sweetie enjoying his tasty lunch. Can you hear him thinking ... "SIGH! Not again! Enough with the photos of me eating!" Tee! Hee! Hee! He really is a cutie, don't you think! :0) You can also see some of the Mexican style pretties in the background.

All in all, it was a very pleasant way to spend a sunny Sunday. I also managed to spend some time in my sewing room over the weekend ... am a bit stuck with one project at the moment ... I know what I want to do, just nutting out the best way to do it so it's in the 'too hard' basket for now ... and started a new Secret Squirrel project that I am LOVING! :0) Gotta keep you in suspenders for a little while, but can't wait to share it with you!

Who knows ... I might even be able to add my secret project to my OPAM finishes list this month! :0) Sweet Peg and I have finished our monthly blog-hop for July and the winners have been announced this morning on Sweet Peg's blog. Well done to the winners and well done to everyone for their stitching efforts for July ... a grand total of


finishes was recorded! WOO! HOO!!! Congrats to all who finished projects and well done to those who managed to make some good progress on their long-term projects. Don't be discouraged if you didn't have finishes for your list this month ... remember that the main goal of OPAM is to encourage us all to take a bit of time out from our busy schedule to relax, stitch and take a breath. If you managed to do that, then you're a winner! :0) Thanks to everyone who emailed me or Sweet Peg with your end of month tally - it really is a big help to us and I promise to try to answer your emails this week ... slowly but surely will be the ticket, I think! :0)

OK ... slice to bake, dinner to organise, music to get in order all before I head off to choir rehearsal tonight, so I'd better get a wriggle on. Hope your Sunday was full of sunshine too ... real or metaphorical! :0) Enjoy your week - til next time ...

That looks like a fun place to eat not to mention delicious food (and of course your good company).
Pretty flowers in your new pretties - perfect for a sunny Sunday.
Enjoy the sunshine in your sewing space.

Lovely pretties...must visit there next time I am up on the HILL. I love a Sunday drive especially if there is a yummy lunch involved.

Aren't unplanned days out the best. It looks like you both had a great day and good shopping with your glass. Mick has the same look when I take photos of our meal......except for the times he reminds to take a photo.
