Some days, I wish DH knew me a little bit better. Other days, I think he knows me way too well. Case in point - Saturday afternoon. We were just sitting around, not doing much. I had already cleaned the topstairs, did 2 loads of laundry, and dusted the downstairs. I also did a LO (which will follow this post). Wasn't feeling like stitching. So, I was getting bored. DH was watching random stuff on TV. I told him like 100th time that I was bored. Hey, let's go out. He said "Uh hum" and continued to watch TV. Sigh. He noticed after some time and said, "We have to go to Indian store to return a DVD, so let's go there in the evening and you can also get Baja Fresh for you while returning." I sorta rolled my eyes and didn't show much excitement. He said "Okay, Baja Fresh is for *afterwards* We should do something before then. Something that involves shopping." Um, Yeah. That is EXACTLY what I was thinking. LOL. So, we went to the Mall and shopped some, then got a burrito from Baja Fresh and returned back. I also made a hair cuttery appointment for tonight. We actually got this Weasel toy for Mehul, that keeps playing with a ball. It's so funny. I took a video that I will share once DH sends it to me.

Sunday was pretty quite. Got some stitching done on the Angel of Love. I think I might stick it out with this one project. I'm going to try anyway. The one big project I have finished so far was done when I stitched on it alone. No rotations. I think that works for me better. We'll see.

This LO features my mom, as a baby. The photo was among the many photos that my sister sent me recently. In this LO, I just pulled stuff from all over since I wasn't making this as a CT LO. Just had fun adding my favorite stuff.

How wonderful to have photos of your mother at such a young age! I'll have to try to remember and scan some of my parents over Thanksgiving. Great layout!
