Kill 'em with Kindness

Here's the progress on the Quaker Ridge Pixie Hat from Little Badger. I am past the first set of "ridges". It is going fairly quickly despite the vast number of stitches and the size of the needles. Hopefully I can get it done before next Saturday a.m. and give it to Mom to take to the shower. The shower for my cousin's  wife that I was not invited to although my sister and mother were. Hmm-m-m. 
The grapevine (Mom) says it was because we did not attend the wedding.  The wedding invite said no kids allowed so it was kind of a no win.  I could not reconcile babysitting costs for a 14 and 11 year old for at least 4 hours (including drive time) yet I could not leave them at home by themselves that long.  I also heard that the bride's family had all their kids there.  It was suggested by the grapevine that I could have left my escort of 16 years at home to babysit and go by myself.  Either way it was not going to work.  Mike says I should not send a gift but I believe I should.  Kill 'em with kindness.

Purchased the paint for the dining room and I am very excited about it. It is from the "Bloom" brochure by Benjamin Moore. Cinco de Mayo, Vanilla Ice Cream, Tuscan Tan, and Bittersweet Chocolate. Sounds good enough to eat, doesn't it? On the coffered ceiling I am using a Ralph Lauren Duchesse Satin paint in Oyster, I had stashed. I am hoping it will reflect a lot of light down in the space.

#1 Son's first cross country meet was yesterday. It was a European style race with four man relay teams on a 6 mile course replete with hay bales and hills. His coach put together a freshman team and raced them against all of JV A. They came in 4th. I was so proud. They tried so hard against teams running upper classmen.

Rearranged the family room. I was just a little tired of it. Don't know if it's as aethestically pleasing to me but Mike likes it because everything is lined up and nothing is blocking doors.
