A Perfect Saturday

I did not leave the house today.

Early this morning I reset the table so it’s already done for Thanksgiving. I did a few loads of laundry and fiddled with the blog post below. Sue, it was easy as you said in your comment, but it took a while to get Blogger to take it. I redid it about 4 times. I am going to delete it because I think it slows down the page way too much.

I had planned to get a lot more done, but it just didn’t happen. DH was flipping channels and came across a movie he remembered I liked. He was about to take an afternoon nap and asked me if I wanted him to leave it on that channel. He knows I rarely watch movies. He also knows I think Something’s Gotta Give with Jack Nicholson and Diane Keaton is one of the most romantic movies of all time. Since becoming middle aged I have taken to movies portraying romance in the later years.

So I spent two hours this afternoon re-watching this wonderful film while doing some hand quilting on the Starry Log. I loved the movie even more than I did the first time.

Toward the end of the movie, DH woke up. I poured a glass of my favorite Relax wine and we watched the end of the movie together.

I put some pork chops in an onion tomato sauce in the oven and let them cook for a few hours. When they were done I boiled some bow tie pasta and made a quick salad of romaine lettuce, red onion and Muenster cheese. Voila! Dinner was ready.

I just finished watching a pie contest on Food TV and went to their site and printed off 3 of the winning pies that interested me.

I am now watching another Food TV contest where they are preparing a 5-course Turkey day dinner in 5 hours. They are cooking a 12lb bird just like I am going to cook. Maybe I will get some tips for my little Thanksgiving meal.

Ah, it’s been a perfect Saturday.

I hope yours has been equally as wonderful.


  1. Nice job with the sunflower tree Zoey. Very creative.
    I love that movie too. I should order it from the library and watch it again.
    We had pork chops tonight too :)
    I think I might invest in a couple of those weights and do some arm exercises too.

  2. Thank you, Kerri. I was just amending my post as you were commenting.
    I've probably scared everyone with that terrible picture. Now we will all be exercising our arms!

  3. Don't you just love days like that when you can stay in and just do what you feel like doing:-) I spent most of my day addressing Christmas cards and my mom & Ross dropped in for a visit. I love that movie too!!

  4. Hi Pea. Love your holiday profile picture! Since your Thanksgiving is long over, you can get right into Christmas. I think I would like TG in October.

  5. Glad you enjoyed your day. Here's to perfect Saturdays. ;-)
