Marvelous Monday Update 6/8/09

THE SICKY BUG
Yep, it's still with me. I went to the Dr last Thursday just to make sure I didn't have something serious since I still had a sore throat (which I think is due to all the coughing) and cough/congestion. The Dr looked at me and said I had a cold and allergies. LOL, well I knew that! So, I'm just waiting for it to get out of my system. Last night was the first night I slept thru without waking up in a coughing fit. Maybe I'm getting better?? Let's hope so!


STITCHY STUFF
I've made quite a bit more progress on Oriental Kimono:

(Sorry about the bad pic)

Other progress pics can be seen HERE.


GIVEAWAYS
My friend, Kathy, is doing a "surprise" giveaway on her blog. Go on over... take a peek at her new, adorable "baby" and sign up for her giveaway.

Gaynor is also hosting a surprise giveaway. Take a peek at the lovely WIPs.


DATING
Ya'll have been pressuring me to give "new guy" a name, so from now on I'll call him "JT" which are his first and middle initals. Are ya happy now?!? LOL

We had another great week/weekend. Now that school is over for the summer, we've been spending time together almost every day. A little over a month, and he is still very considerate, thoughtful and helpful. This past week, he brought me more flowers:


Saturday night, he took me out to eat at ThunderBay Grill. He ordered a grilled steak that tasted like it was fried with no flavor. I had the shrimp linguini, which was OK. We probably won't be going back there anytime soon.

On Sunday, we did a picnic at the park with grilled pork steaks, macaroni salad, and watermelon. Yummy! It was the first time our doggies met. After the initial "sniffing", they went about their own business and didn't really "play" with each other.

Thanks for all your comments about JT. They're all very much appreciated! :) (Can you tell I'm very happy with him?!)
