Today was a great day, the weather was beautiful, we had company a few times. Eric and I headed to Walmart and picked him up a few new Wii games. I talked to my BFF for over an hour, and that always puts a smile on my face. I can hardly wait till Leadership when she will come for the week.
I watched a couple movies, one was Slumdog Millionaire, I did not know what it was about before I watched it, but it was really good, I missed the very beginning, so will have to catch it again. Jeff and I watched Australia tonight and it was pretty good too. Again I had no idea what it was about, as it started I thought it was just cattle herding, and then half way through it was like the Pearl Harbor movie. It was a really good movie too. Hugh Jackman cleans up so nice, plus I love the accent…crikey!
I also got some new books too, will I ever get my stack by the bed read? Who knows, it seems it gets added to all the time, I finish one and two more get added, plus I need to re-read New Moon, so I can remind myself about it before we go to the movie on the 20th. Did I tell you we already have our tickets bought…ha!
I am gonna have another good day tomorrow. Ellie and I are going to see The Phantom of the Opera, and then our hubby's are finally gonna meet when we go to dinner, what a great day eh? I am excited to see the play, I think I have only been to perhaps two plays in my whole life, one was a Shakespeare one and it was in Stratford and I think we had to go with our class, and I could not understand a dang thing they said. I probably was not hearing properly as I didn't start wearing hearing aids till 1988, I was too stubborn. Then I remember seeing one at a small place and it was oh crap, the name went right out of my head…something about the Dark. There was a blind woman and a man was trying to kill her, gosh I can't remember, I just know it was good, and it was amazing how they could scare us, one part they like turned the lights out but you could hear things going on.
Plus the next day is our 25th Anniversary and Jeff took the day off work, how special is that? Wonder what we will do?
So I will post a quick card, so I can hit the hay. This is another Stamp a Stack Christmas card from my class coming up. I pretty much copied this card from my friend Terri Mongeon, but hey what are friends for eh?
Stamp Set: A Cardinal Christmas
Paper: Real Red, Whisper White, Soft Suede, Christmas Cocoa Specialty DSP
Ink: Real Red, Soft Suede
Misc: Silver brads
Simple, quick and beautiful. Gotta love it, especially at Christmas time. Of course you could leave the greeting off and have it be any kind of card. I usually suggest that to the girls that come to class, cause you can always stamp on a greeting later.
Well my pillow is calling my name. Have a great Sunday and thanks for stopping in!

Sounds like my kind of day:) Was the movie/play called Wait Until Dark? I know it was a fabulous thriller movie with Audrey Hepburn and Alan Arkin. I should buy that movie – it's a classic!!
Happy Anniversary! and you are going to love The Phantom. I have seen it 6 or 7 times.
Wow you did have a good day. I'm curious to hear what Jeff has planned for you for your anniversary! 25 years holy cow!!!!
One thing about Phantom of the Opera – be prepared for singing. I know that you know it is a musical and there are songs in it…but I was not prepared for the whole thing to be singing – even the parts where they are having "conversations" they are singing them….that was a little odd for me…pretty good play though. I hope you enjoy it.
I think the play/movie you were talking about is called Wait Until Dark. It was a good one. Sounds like a very fun day for you. Enjoy! Pretty card, too.
