Gentle Readers and Dear Friends thanks so much for stopping by and for your kind comments about the brownies!! I am leaning towards baking a Pineapple Upside down cake this weekend.... had a hankering and now must have some cake!! I have quite a few recipes for PUDC - from the ridiculously easy to the odd and bizarre - I will probably go for one of the easier ones... but you never know!
Not much going on in our lives... I am still working on an exchange piece so no "real" stitching snap. The mail brought a little something stitching related...
The next instalment of my every growing "Cottages" SAL. I have pulled the recommended floss' and lets juts say that I am a little less enthused than I probably should be. I am liking the over dyed choices, but the DMC's are on the pale side - and I am missing two of them - a "light blue" and a "cranberry" - they are very minor in the scheme of this cottage so I am not worried in the least about not having them. What I am thinking is that I will go digging into my over dyed floss stash and pull other floss choices .... I have a couple of things I want to work on before I tackle this so there is plenty of time.
The film last night was "Evening" - 2007 - starring a lot of really great actors....
.....including Vanessa Redgrave, Claire Danes, Toni Collette, Natasha Richardson, Patrick Wilson, Hugh Dancy. Meryl Streep, Glenn Close - Directed by Lajos Koltai - I enjoyed the film - but really not as much as I had thought I would. The film is told in two time periods the present and 1953 - and keeps flashing back and forth between the two to tell the story. It is superbly well acted, well filmed and a beautiful production - so I am not sure why it wasn't a knock out. At 2 or so hours it was nice to see, but slow in the telling. I did like they way they summed up life in general.... that we make no mistakes, only choices - some good, some bad but in the end it is only our lives are our choices - gotta love that!!!
That's about it for today sports fans - thanks again for stopping by, do come again!
