This report is going to be kind of light...except for one thing! (FORESHADOWING: Your KEY to QUALITY blog posts.) Friday was a day off, and it was the first day we really had to relax the whole holiday season! There was a whole lotta relaxing, and that was good.
Saturday we went to Michael's parents' house for his mom's birthday. We went to see TinTin, which was EXCELLENT. You must go see it. Good, clean fun, and even if you've never read the famous comic, I promise you'll enjoy it. I'm a huge Snowy fan, so I found much to be happy about. The rest of the day we spent playing with our new Settlers of Catan expansion pack that Michael's parents gave us for Christmas, Traders and Barbarians! It was a ton of fun...we played two games and didn't even get to the traders or the barbarians. There are five new scenarios, and those are the last two.
Unfortunately, I started to feel sick on Saturday (didn't keep me from winning the second game, though ;) I barely made it to midnight. Sunday I spent half the day in bed and the other half on the couch (my typical sinus infection type thing). However, that did let me spend a good deal of time beading Dasher...yeah, yeah, I know, it's Jardin January, but as Michael said, "Dasher's got a garland! That's greenery!" Part of Theme-a-licious is the creative designation of favorite projects so fit them into the theme. ;) Anyway, I was too out of it to even consider foraging for a project that wasn't lying right by me. But the good news is that by doing that, I have my first happy dance of 2012!
|"PLEASE! No more!!!"|
I did make some changes in Dasher's colors if anyone is interested. I thought the original deer colors were too "yellow". I can also tell you the Delica numbers for the Mill Hill beads. Several are used across the eight reindeer, and even if you're just doing one or two, it's a lot cheaper to buy a tube of Delicas.
Today has been another hibernation day, but tomorrow it's back to work. =(
