It's Friday and we have a 3 Day Weekend!!!

Woo HOO - three days off!!!! Just jumping for joy - nothing to do but stuff i want for 3 whole days!! You all know what that means - movies and stitching!!

Yesterday afternoon was pretty uneventful - our first guests arrived spending all day in Golden Gate Park visiting the New Academy of Sciences which they said was just fantastic!! They came with their preK child and said he had a great time seeing everything - the fishes, the planetarium, the dioramas. We met up with them after going out with some friends for dinner. They trotted off to bed early as they were wiped out!! Rico also went off early so I was left on my own with my stitching and a flicker on..... then click - the electricity snapped off on our side of the hill. Of course I could look out and see the other side of the hill still had lights. So I sat there waiting for a few mins to see if they would come back on. No such luck. I tossed the needle work to the side - lit a candle, grabbed Pete (the Peach had gone up with Rico) and off to bed I went!!! Some time near to 2am all the lights came back on so I had to get up and click everything off - it was a not very interesting evening!!

CarolR is having a super Give away - go check it out!!!!

Hoping Everyone has a safe and fun weekend!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
See you Tuesday -

Take care -

Our street is notorious for black-outs. I think our electric comes throw a piece of tental floss attached to a gerbal on a wheel. During last Sept.'s wind storm most of the area was out for about four days...oooh such torture....we were out for NINE days!
Enjoy the Three-Day. I am just overflowing with excitement. I'm off until June 8th. No money of course, but you can't put a price on this kind of peace and relaxation.

Here in v. rural Ireland, blackouts are sooooo common, especially in the winter. Frustrating when you want to get on with things. Have a lovely long weekend!

Bummer! A night without stitching can make any one grumpy...LOL

Nothing on the boob tube last night so I put a DVD in and watched The Egg and I with Fred McMurray and Claudette Colbert and "Ma and Pa Kettle". Such a cute movie!

Hope you have a great weekend :)
