I've had a pretty busy weekend. Friday Marianne came over after work so we could work on our project for the NC demo Quarterly meeting next weekend in Greensboro. I signed us up for all the swaps which is stressing Marianne out!! We are doing 3D (9 total), holiday card swaps (16), 6x6 technique (8) and 30 shoebox cards! The hardest thing for both of us is deciding on what to do! We both had decided on our 3D project so we set to work finishing them. We took a break at dinner to go to the Boathouse for some catfish (well, I had BBQ). When we returned home around 8:30, the electricity was out. The sky had looked really bad earlier. I half expected a funnel to drop down although I didn't mention that to Marianne! But we really never had a storm - it just looked really bad and their was some wind so we didn't know why the power was out. I set about finding flashlights and candles. We worked for a while by flashlight but by 10:30, we gave up and called it a night. The power didn't come back on until midnight! We found out the next day that a tree had fallen on the lines. So we got up Saturday morning, it was straight to work! We worked hard until about 4:30 - didn't even get dressed all day!! Sonny and I were going to a friend's home for dinner at 7 so I had to get ready.

Sunday was spent watching football. First off was the Panthers who got their first win of the season. After that game was over, the station switched to the final minutes of the New England vs. Detroit game and I got to witness Detroit beat New England. Thought they were going to have to give Brady and Belecheck a crying towel!! The Sunday night game was Pittsburgh vs. Indianapolis .... a game I thought would be a walk in the park with Peyton Manning out. I was wrong!! Pittsburgh ended up winning it in the final seconds but they sure didn't deserve it. They played like crap!!
