A Few Fun Things From the Looong Weekend.....

Gentle Friends, I'm back from my looong weekend of a few fun things..... so here goes...

Once again TCM held their Memorial Day marathon... 72 hours of film covering the different American conflicts on film from the Civil War to the Korean War.  There were some super films shown!!  I also got some stitching done and here's a shot of Hannah as she is at the moment...

 ... I'm coming up on the finish in the near future and have already lined up my next piece..... 

We also headed down to the pool a couple of times.  The weather was just gorgeous, in the upper 70's, bright and clear..... 

....  it's a Rico bobbing along in the sunshine!!

We wrapped up the weekend yesterday evening with a celebration of Rico's big brother's Birthday!!  Happy Birthday, Torchy!!  We got a cake from our favorite bakery!!  It was chocolate cake with a chocolate creme filling - so delicious!!

There you go sports fans, thanks for stopping by do stop again!!

Take care,


  1. Happy Birthday Torchy! Love your name (I wonder if it is a nickname or a given name). And that cake...yum! Hannah is beautiful. I can't wait to see what is next up. I also watched several of the "war" movies that were on this past weekend. Some parts were difficult to watch but made me appreciate even more all the sacrifices that were made so we can enjoy the freedoms we have in America today. Have a great week....summer has arrived a bit early here in AR. Triple digits temps are predicted for the weekend.

  2. Wow, Hannah is looking fabulous. I look forward to seeing what you have pulled to stitch next. The chocolate cake looked divine.

  3. Looks like a great week-end. Glad you had some pool weather in SF. Our Sat. was good but then cool and cloudy. Love the way Hannah is looking!

  4. Dearest Edgar: Happy Birthday to Torchy.
