After all that crafting last week (and the cake fiasco), I needed the weekend to relax and catch up. I started reading A Game of Thrones last week. Can I just tell you, this is a big book! There are a lot of characters, so I'm having a hard time keeping up with the names and how they fit into everything. It probably would have helped had I know there was an appendix in the back describing all of this. Oh well. Live and learn.
I also took some time to work on an afghan for a baby shower I have coming up this weekend. I'll post that later this week so you can see how beautiful it is. Baby yarn is so soft and cuddly, but it tangles easily. Plus, I learned the hard way before that fine yarn slips so be sure you weave your tails in securely.
We also took some time out this weekend to go see a movie. Us and the rest of the world, apparently. Of course I am referring to The Avengers.
We went to an early show, mostly because I hate crowds. There was no avoiding it for this flick. All the shows were sold out for 4 hours. So, we went to another theater.
There is this great place in Ybor City (pronounced eee-boar) which only a few miles down the road. I like to say it's our Disney away from Disney. I love the Spanish decor inside The Muvico Theater and we got to go to the Premiere Theater which has super nice seats and stadium seating. Funny how things work out. The film was incredible and definitely worth the $8 per person. The whole family loved it.
So, now it's back to work and back to the traditional pattern here on the blog. Mother's Day is coming up this weekend, so I'll try to share some ideas on that through out the week. There's also still time to enter my first giveaway. Go here for free gourmet popcorn!
