Last Saturday Mike and I celebrated our 45th anniversary! It's always hard to believe another year has gone by - and hasn't this been quite the year?! It's a good thing we like spending a lot of time together... 😉
Here we are on January 9, 1976.
We celebrated with takeout from a nearby Chinese restaurant. It was yummy and we had enough for three meals! Our meal filled this box!
We enjoyed the new Masterpiece show on PBS - "All Creatures Great and Small." It's on Sunday nights. I read a lot of those books many years ago, and watched the original series as well. It looks like this version will be just as good!
You know it's going to be a good day when you *finally* get this note from the USPS.
This was the fabric I ordered from Bernie's shop on December 28th that she shipped the same day I ordered it. It got as far as Denver (50 miles away) on Dec 31st and has sat in their distribution center ever since! Last week I submitted a complaint form and actually got a phone call from someone at my local post office who was investigating my claim. (A real person called me - that was really surprising!)
And this afternoon (Wednesday) my package arrived! Whoop, whoop!
There are two bundles of fabric - one is half yards and the other is fat quarters. I have plans for the half yard bundle, so now I can get going on that project. More about that later!
Over the weekend I roasted a pork tenderloin, and had lots of leftover meat to do something with. So I googled a soup recipe and found this one: Pork and Potato Soup. I made this recipe last night and it is very tasty!
It's a pretty basic vegetable soup with a few added spices and the pork itself giving it a unique flavor. We enjoyed trying something new and different!
Hope you've had a good week. I'm joining in with LeeAnna and friends at Not Afraid of Color for "I Like Thursday!"
