On Friday I started my weekend by shopping at Hancock Fabrics. I needed to buy some supplies for school. We have a LOT of money that needs to be spent before they take it away. Upon arrival, I learned that the store is closing. So EVERYTHING is on sale. Of course I went a little more crazy than I should. But the money HAS to be spent right? ANd it's for the children. I didn't really go THAT crazy. Then I became an official Canadian. My friend Martha came over and we watched Strange Brew. I have never seen it before. We started watching it once when I was at Ricks but it got turned off because it was dumb. I thought it would be a movie that would necessitate being drunk to enjoy. But I liked it. Sure it was lame, and cheesy. But funny. I am going to have to start saying "Take off eh." and "Horked"- as in "who horked the pencil that was on my desk?". Love it.
Saturday morning before Martha left (she slept over) we watched Ella Enchanted. I LOVE that movie. And Prince Char is so dreamy. I must admit that I fell asleep but woke up in time for the musical ending.
I have had Pirates of the Caribbean 2 (and Strange Brew) in my posession for at LEAST a month. It was time to watch them so I could send them back for new movies. It was pretty gruesome (sp?) but I LOVED the music. That is a good soundtrack.
Craft #2-While watching Pirates I started cutting out fabric. I have wanted to make quilts with my classes for a LONG time but have never gotten around to cutting out the squares. I have TONS of fabric scraps at school so I decided enough was enough. I started cutting... and kept cutting during...
Good Year. Dumb movie. Don't waste your time. I hadn't heard much about it but it looked cute so I thought I would take a chance. The best thing about the movie was when it had finished I had over 280 squares cut out plus about 100 smaller pieces for seam samples.
I broke down a bought a crochet book. It was a Michaels with a 50% off coupon. I really want to learn how to crochet more than the 2 things I currently know. But after trying to learn how to do a granny square, I might have to stick with what I know. I don't know if I will every understand Crochet language. But isn't the book fun.
I love the table of contents.
After Good Year finished, and I was still trying to crochet, I found A View from the Top on TV. That movie is fabulous and repaired all the damage done by dumb movie #3.
I rented The Nativity last night along with Good Year. I haven't watched it yet but I think it might be my activity for tonight with a big bowl of popcorn. And maybe a few more attempts at crocheting.
