Cheese and Monopoly!

Good Evening!

I don't know about you but this weekend went by way too fast!  I worked Friday and Saturday and today after running one short errand we just puttered around the house.  Didn't even work on putting up the Christmas Decorations!  I meant to stitch all day but instead got to searching online for some bedding I saw on Pintrest and before I knew it poof!  The day was gone and I don't think the bedding is available anymore so I wasted a lot of stitching time darnit!  

Thanksgiving went well.  Everyone played nice, the food was good, and while tiring it was a good day.  Most everyone went home by 5:00 p.m. which left me some time to sit and catch my breath, do a little stitching and watch a cheesy Lifetime movie.  Now don't get me wrong.  I love my Lifetime and Hallmark movies but this one was particularly bad.  So bad in fact that I changed the channel!  Shhhh, don't tell anyone I said that, I'll get kicked out of the cheese club!   My niece and nephew stayed to play a lively game of Monopoly with Dan and Amy and nephew Jordan drafted a friend of his (Nate) to play too.

They had a great time!  Dan and Amy found out they aren't the world's best Monopoly players,  I think they were both a bit surprised when Nate won the game.  Ya gotta watch out for the quiet ones.  They just go on about their business and let everyone else get whipped into a frenzy while they quietly buy up all the property before the others realize what's happening!    Amy spent the next day online researching strategies for winning Monopoly.  I think she's planning a rematch for Christmas break!

I wanted to share the Blackbird Designs Display that the shop has had up all month.  Most of the pictures you see belong to our customers who were kind enough to loan them to us for November.  Some I had never seen before so it's been wonderful to have them in the shop.  Thanks to all that participated!

Time is ticking away here and I haven't put one stitch in since Thursday night so I'm going to head on over to my nest and settle in with a  cheesy movie and my stitching.  Have a great evening everyone!

Take care till next time!
