Since I've seen this on about 50 of the blogs I read, I figured I'd participate...

Outside my window... Freddie is hoping to see a cat.

I am thinking... that I need to finish packing.

I am thankful for... air conditioning.

From the kitchen... nothing, nothing, nothing! My MIL made me some fish curry for my birthday and Mr. B is bringing me home some leftovers from his dinner with his coworkers.

I am wearing... a house dress my MIL gave me from India. The most comfortable thing I own right now.

I am creating... a dress. Almost done if I could finish packing. And get off the computer.

I am going... to IOWA!!!!

I am reading... Undress Me in the Temple of Heaven.

I am hoping... to get to bed at a decent hour.

I am hearing... Seinfeld in the background.

Around the house... NOTHING!! I had to clean like a mo' fo' because we are having company tonight.

One of my favorite things... Fish curry. And vacation. :)

A few plans for the rest of the week... Hang out with my sister and BIL and Mr. B. Reading. Shopping. Eating. Relaxing. Boat time. And definitely a lot of laughing. :)

Weekend Fun.

I finally finished up the last apron on my To-Do list and gave it away. I didn't take pics of it. Mostly because I forgot, but also because it's the same pattern as the other apron I posted pics of a few weeks ago. I used Amy Butler's Wildflowers in Navy in the Daisy Chain line. I fell in love with the fabric when I bought it because I just knew my friend would love it. I am not a huge "blue" fan, like my friend, but I can appreciate a fabulous blue print when I see one. This one is gorgeous in person. My friend loved it. So, I am happy. It's nice to get a good "OMG, I LOVE IT! I CAN'T BELIEVE YOU MADE THIS!" every once in a while. :)

I also made a card for Mr. Bean's cousin. He is the last to graduate from high school on that side of the family, so the family got together on Saturday night. It's a money holder. I based it off of Kristina Werner's gift card holder that was a PDF for Two Peas sometime during the holidays, but I can't find the original link and, frankly, I am too tired to look for it right now. The PDF had a template you could cut out and use, but I remembered basically what it looked like and just went for it. Using the template probably would have saved time, but I didn't have time to mess with my printer once I took the time to find the PDF anyway. So. Here it is.

Front (He will be a Longhorn, of course):


If I would have had a few more minutes (we were running late as it was), I wouldn't have kept the "Class of 2013" and instead would have just put "Congrats" or something. Just looks really heavy for the card. The money was stashed under the flap created by the brads.

That's all I got for now. Finished up some reading I need to to. It seems my list of books I want to read is getting longer than the list of books I've read.
