It was DH's birthday yesterday so I took today off to get an early start to the long weekend. (DH had already had yesterday off and today as well). We started by going to the movies. There are so many movies out there that we want to see that we literally at the desk to buy our tickets and were still trying to decide. We were down to Hancock and Wall*E. I told DH that it's kind of tradition to see a Will Smith movie when it comes out over the weekend of the 4th. So that is what we ended up seeing. We are going to try and see Wall*E over the weekend. We had fun at the movie then after we went out to the Mohegan Sun Casino. The day after birthday boy ended up winning and me...I kind of broke even.
When we got home there was a package from Sue(Redwitch) waiting for me.
A few weeks ago Sue went to Dublin for a conference and unbenouced to me she picked me up a few things. First there is the card with a picture of one of the pages of the Book of Kells, a bookmark with some of the sites around Trinity College on it, a piece of milk chocolate from the Trinity College Library (I"m amazed that this made it to have it's picture taken. I don't see it making it very far though the night) and last but not least the cutest little doll (I've named her Bridgette).
Thank you SO MUCH Sue! It was so sweet of you to think of me like this. I would love to be able to put Bridgette out on my stitching dresser for everyone to see but, the kittens would get up there and decide she is a toy and I don't want that to happen so she'll have to go away someplace safe till they get bigger but, don't worry I'll have her out all the time to look at.
Two weeks ago this coming Sunday I bought a new computer. I can't begin to tell you how much better getting on line now is. So since then I've slowly been getting the new computer put together. I bought it from Dell and they shipped it to me....boy are they quick! I ordered on Sunday and had all the pieces for it by Wednesday. The last piece of the puzzle I needed was the cord to hook up the printer/scanner. So I hope to figure out how to use it over the weekend so I can share updates on my pieces with you.
To any of the readers out there have any of you read the Stephanie Myers Twilight books? They are young adult books but, they are so well written. One of the ladies I work with got me into reading the and she just told me the other day that they are making a movie of the first book. I can't wait!
I hope everyone here in the US has a safe and happy 4th!
