Singular Stitches: Stars and Stripes Forever

Stars and Stripes Forever

Not much to report here today. We're off today and tomorrow. (yay!) It's a 3H day (Hazy, Hot and Humid), so we've been hiding inside with the AC blasting and all the blinds drawn to keep it cool (which has really been annoying the cats, because they can't see outside), and doing absolutely nothing.

We usually queue up a bunch of library requests for movies (and BBC series) to watch over holiday weekends. Between my sinuses and being extraordinarily busy at work getting things done before the long holiday, I totally forgot. And, it just worked out that we mailed out 2 of our 3 Netflix movies just before the weekend, so we won't get the next movies until some time next week. *sigh* If motivated to get up and go downstairs, I was thinking of doing a Lord of the Rings Craftathon.

We gathered for the Fourth of July Cookout yesterday afternoon. It was really a lot of fun, as usual. Lots of eating, laughing and general merriment. I was actually on a winning Jarts team!

Whenever me & Mum are deciding whether to do the Holiday Thing at their house or ours, I always ask her 'Do you want to drive or do you want to cook?' We live about 40 minutes away, and since they're getting older, I let them decide what they feel like doing. It is funny, though, to hear her complain about all the old people going too slow around the grocery store. At 71, she's probably older than a lot of them!

Remember the green psychedelic palm tree pants for my Dad? He tried them on last weekend and there were some minor adjustments that needed to be made. So, Saturday night was a sewing night here in the land of Singular Stitches, and being the really sweet daughter that I am (!), I also sewed him up another pair of pants to scare wow the other joggers at the track.


Now that we have a good pattern, I'm on the hook for a bunch more, the louder, the better!

Too bad the weather is so miserable for you. We have the Hot, but not the rest.

Love the track pants for your dad and waiting to see you come up with some louder fabric, lol!
