Happy Mardi Gras

I'm at work today and it really sucks. However, I'm enjoying some Mardi Gras music. Here's a pretty good list if you want to check out some of the sounds of the season. They All Asked (Axed) for you is one of my particular favorites. And it's not MG with out Mardi Gras Mambo!

Mardi Gras

We did our Mardi Grasing this weekend. Saturday we went to Spanish Town Parade in Baton Rouge. That's a satirical parade and it's pretty risque. There was much putting down of Nick Saban, Gov. Blanco, Ray Nagin and William Jefferson. I saw way too many pictures of Britney Spears' naked crotch. We had a fantastic time though. Lauren and Maria fell asleep and I handed them off to my mom and husband. I put Eva on my shoulders and we got a ton of junk. We had so many throws when we left there, we could barely even carry it all back to the car.

I was going to go to New Orleans by myself on Sunday, but I ended up going with my parents, my aunt, and I relented and let Eva come with me. James and the twins stayed home. The day parades were great. We were on St. Charles St. in a perfect location and we got there early enough that we got primo spots right on the curb. We saw Okeanos, Thoth, and Mid-City during the day. Then there was this really short little weird parade of very scantily clad people playing very bizarre instruments. It was really entertaining. Then we decided to stay for Bacchus, James Gandolfini and Drew Brees were the King and Grand Marshall. That parade wasn't as much fun. They weren't throwing heavy and it was moving really fast. We left early, but once we got to the car we were blocked in by about 4 cars so we had to wait for all those people to show up so we could leave. It wasn't too bad though. Eva got a CD from one of the floats so we listened to Mardi Gras music and got warm. It was so cold. Then we went through all the stuff Eva got. I swear she got about 3 dozen stuffed animals.

It was a good weekend. I'm really sore from holding Eva on my shoulders so much and I'm sunburnt and my lips are burnt and I can't get my finger nails clean, but it was well worth it!

Nuthin Much

There's just not much going on. This weekend we didn't do too terribly much. Saturday we all went to the health club. I'm not liking the situation going on over there. They're undergoing massive renovations so they have all the cardio machines in what used to be the free weights room. It's pretty packed in there and the mirrors are everywhere. There's only one little tv, so basically all you have to look at is yourself and everyone else in the mirror. It's really unnerving. Our company is doing some of the work so I asked what the completion date is supposed to be, and it's like 2 months away at least. I'm determined to not let this distract me.

Friday I finished up a little stitching project, but I can't share it yet. Sunday I stitched just a little tiny bit. That's about it. The weather has been really nice so we've been outside all afternoon most days.

Watching the Sun Set

Here's the view from my back yard. That's our cat Angel. You'll notice his true self is showing through his devil eyes.

Rick Who?

The other day I was digging through a box of old letters. I found a whole ton...well like 12-15 notes and cards from someone that I can not remember for the life of me. They were from like 10-11 years ago. I have a vague feeling he was a pilot maybe? I can't recall anything else about him! How weird is that? I really think I have some sort of amnesia from that time in my life.

Still no stitching...

I didn't stitch last night at all. I got a very nice phone call instead.

I did have a good mail day! I got some lovely marking pins from WhizGidget for the Pay it Forward challenge. I'm having camera issues so I don't have a picture yet. And I finally got an order from Stitching Bits and Bobs that I've been waiting on forever! I got a bunch of silks, a few kreiniks, and 2 Papillon Creations charts, St. Sophia and Year's End.

Weekend Update

Not much going on. I went out to dinner with Marjean and Karen Saturday night. Then we had a high ole time at the Wal-Mart. I didn't stitch much at all this weekend. I'm having trouble with my fore arms hurting. They're feeling kind of better today, so maybe I needed to take a break.
