Marvelous Monday 11/16/09

I received word that Robin and Debbie Jo have received their PIF's. Mel should be receiving hers soon.

I'm close to sending out the Advent package for the CSE group. Just a few more things to buy and wrap up. I hope my partner likes what I picked out.

I've got my Humbug package ready also. I just need to get the box taped up and put into the mail.

I haven't stitched in several weeks. Just been too bummed about everything that's been going on. I'm hoping that'll change soon!

Last week, I decided to make an easy homemade chicken pot pie. I don't know what I was thinking, but I ended up with so much filling that I had to make two pies! So, I ate it for two days and put the rest in serving size containers for the freezer. Perfect for those times I work out of town, or when I don't feel like cooking.

As disgusting as it is, Bambi "pooped" on my car when he was flipped back the way he came after I hit him. I also have a souvenir of Bambi's fur stuck where the headlight used to be.

Yes, that's me! Marjorie, The Pumpkin Patch Stitcher, was hosting a giveaway to celebrate her DD's and Mom's birthdays.

I was the lucky recipient of The 1824 Penny Rug Sampler by The Good Huswife, 14x18" 28ct linen, the DMC floss to stitch it up, a packet of Candy Cane Dreams cocoa (Oooh, doesn't it sound yummy?), Ghiradelli Peppermint Bark, a patchwork reindeer memo pad with pen, a Mary Engelbreit Christmas bookmark, and *the cutest ever* Christmas ornament. Thank you Marjorie! Thank you, thank you... It really MADE my day.


Lisa of the SNS2 group held a little contest where we were to guess how many dogs she had. I guessed 6 and she has 5. As a prize, she sent me Heart in Hand's Monthly Mania January. What's funny (to me) is that my birthday is January! Thank you, Lisa!

I'm so sorry about your car. Are you OK? How is the Bambi? There is a lot of wild life on my route to work and I'm always so scared that I will not see it in time.

Your pie looks good and I'm sure it was delicious. Congrats on the winning stuff and now is time to go back to stitching.

Akila said...

Oh, that's a very nasty dent!! Your pie looks yumm.
Congrats on your goodies. It's great to share isn't it??? :)

Shari said...

ouch to the car. Wow, your gifts are great!!!!! I enter contests & never win any of them. It seems I know people who win thou, so that is just as great!!!! Have a good day Meari!

Emily said...

You got some nice things, and your car doesn't look that bad at all. Funny about the poop and all. GRoss, but funny

Mary Ivancicts said...

Thank God, you are ok! The car can be fixed. As long as you are ok!

Joe had his hours cut at work, he is now down to working 4 days, and the company is still taking back the 15% out of his gross pay, which they claim when it picks up they will get it back.

Hoping that something turns around in this country fast.

Sandy In Montana said...

Thank God you were not hurt when the kamakazie deer came at you.
I'm so glad your car is still drivable and that the damage is semi-limited.
Me and my DH know all to well about those darn deer and their "out of no where" actions.

Your pie looks so yummy. I wish mine would turn out as well. So sorry to hear about your troubles. I hope your car doesn't cost you an arm and leg to fix but congrats on all your wins!

Vikki said...

Meari: I had a feeling one of this blue things was the JT situation. Sorry to hear it didn't work out.

Even more so sorry to see that you hit a deer. Pooo???? EWWWWWW. I'm glad you are ok. We almost hit a buck one time and scared the poo out of me but not literally LOL

Go stitch. It just might do you some good.

Your car is fixable. Glad you were not hurt. You are having some good luck in winning giveaways. Stitch some and it will help you feel better.
