Wednesday Reads

Drive by end of evening post. Today we went out and got hubs Valentines/Presidents Day Gift. A new 2013 Mazda 3 Sport? Still Hatchback but it's stick shift, key-less entry and a few other things he lost when he went from the Miata to the 3 hatch he had. We were looking at a 2012 thinking we'd get a better deal but the bank wouldn't do enough so the dealership looked at this one and managed to get the payment where I was happy. Gots to make the wife happy! We had a lovely dinner at Maggianos and we'll have lunch and dinner and lunch for a few days! Then we went to Barnes and Noble and I got The World of Cross-Stitching Magazine. Started on the little freebie card designed by Edith Holden who is author and illustrator of The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady. I haven't heard of this so I'll have to check it out and see if we have it at the library. Not too much on the unplug and read front. I actually plugged in last night and listened to the first part of Middlesex last night. I had tried to read it once but didn't get through much before it had to go back and it had a hold on it so I couldn't renew. It was on Oprah's Book Club probably around that time so everyone was wanting to read it. Tomorrow is stitch night so after tomorrow I'll take pictures of my stitching progress. We're going back to Opry Mills Mall since I pointed out that most restaurants and probably even fast food joints will be packed for Valentines Day. Then we will decide where we should go next but I kinda like the mall food court. Lots of choices (though the cheapest thing is Burger King) there's always seating and the light is good. Also, free wifi from the Starbucks when you need a stitch break or someone asks that question that we need the answer to now! Saturday night will be our get together and I'll be making a cake. Didn't have time to make it this evening. I guess I could have but I watched my Penguins Hockey Game thanks to the NHL Game Center on our PS3 and stitched. So hopefully Friday night it will get done! I was going to make a heart shape out of a square and circle but I don't think my cake carrier will be big enough so probably just circles. I hope everyone else is doing better on their unplug and read!
