Happy Monday! I don't have any stitching to show today because so little stitching has been done. Instead, I have been reading. It is so nice to sit outside with a book and get some vitamin D after the long winter. Not that this past weekend was anything but wet and dreary but the week was warm.
Work gave me a crap project so I had Kindle read to me the Killing Room by John Manning while I did my data entry project. This was just a murder mystery that did not require thinking to get the point. It was actually a free book on Kindle when I first found it. I really enjoyed the book until the end and the Zombies came out. I had been given The Help by Kathryn Stockett to read a while back. I absolutely loved this book and finished it in two days.
I had other fun this weekend. My Guild meeting was on Saturday. It was a little boring getting everyone to agree what to do for our 30th Anniversary and I still don't think we have anything resolved. I also had a nephew's First Holy Communion on Saturday. We did not go to the church but we went to the family party. We had a dinner party on Saturday night which was fun. The condo we were at was next to a venue where the new Mayor Rahm was attending an event. We caught a glimpse of him going into the party. Our hood is hopping this week with Oprah's final shows, the Heat and the Bulls play game 2 on Wednesday night, and we are getting a new mayor today. We are having a client event this week at work and it is impossible to get a room at any of the swanky hotels.
My final exciting thing for the weekend was buying a new IPad 2. It is purely a toy for us to play with on the terrace this summer and on vacations. I am busy working out the bubbles from the non-glare film I put over the screen. I have also been loading applications on the machine. Our old laptop is five years old so I think this will replace that older machine.
That is about it for now. Hope everyone has a wonderful week. I hope to return to stitching this week since the weather is not going to be all that great until the end of the week.
