I try not to miss an opportunity to snap a photo of my favorite singer of almost 40 yrs when he is performing. James Taylor was singing along with the Zac Brown Band on the 2011 American County Awards and looks like he is really enjoying it.
Last night the show ‘The Kennedy Center Honors’ was on and Sir Paul McCartney was one of the honorees. It was neat to see James Taylor briefly sing in honor of Sir Paul as I had seen both of them this year in concert. James was the first singer signed to The Beatles’ Apple record label. I’m lucky to have a copy of this.
Too bad the Emmys were just on a few weeks ago, as Tim Daly just gave one of the best performances of his life on the season opener of ‘Private Practice’. I won’t go into details, but lots of emotions around his girlfriend on the show Violet, who had her baby cut out of her at the end of last season. I know, terrible, but it does happen in real life. Watch it if you can.
(Yes, Tim is one of my all-time favorite actors)
Our Phillies won their 3rd consecutive East division championship last night! Awesome!
I got up to use the computer, and Cosmo scooted over to where I had been sitting and stitching. Brian thought he looked cute and I suggested he put my stitching near Cosmo’s paws. These are cute shots and they gave us a good laugh.
I’m going to the GI doc with Bri later in the afternoon. Our time schedules are really off and we both are a little light-headed today. Whoa!
I enjoyed the finale of ‘Life on Mars’ last night seeing that Sam Tyler was really from the ‘far’ future in a spaceship that was about to land on Mars. Didn’t see that coming-but the name of the show should have been a hint. I enjoyed seeing his ‘dream’ about living in 1973. Too bad it was canceled. I do like the show ‘Cupid’. Jennifer said it had been on before, somehow I missed the first time around.
Sunday seems to be my day to get mail together, make new collage cards and hopefully have a nice dinner.
First-the newspaper company that owns Brian’s newspaper declared bankruptcy (they just talked about it again on the news as I type this). We don’t know what that means right away, but it’s not something to put in the back of one’s mind. Bri’s worked for that company for 11 years now (though they were bought by another company a few years back). I guess we’re taking it day by day. I better keep my eye open for him and me! Sean will hopefully be adding to the finances in a few months too.
We had a boring array of food in the freezer as I need to go to the store and I remembered we had a $25 gift card to eat out! We went to Apple*bees and got the 2-$20 special. The place wasn’t crowded, it was bitter cold tonight. We got the spinach and artichoke dip appetizer which was delicious. Then we both ordered the Lime Fiesta Chicken and that was pretty good too. I even had room for a Chocolate Mousse shooter dessert. It only cost us another $11 (plus tip).
Then I settled in with my stitching and watched the 81st Oscar ceremony. Hugh Jackman was the host and he was entertaining and quirky-funny dance and singing numbers. I liked how they brought past Oscar winners out-5 each, to each talk about each of the nominees. Many of the nominated ladies were very teary-eyed and touched. I was happy that Kate Winslet finally won. Many were moved when the late Heath Ledger won and his mom, dad and sister accepted the award for his 3 yr old daughter Matilda.
We are still getting cold weather and wind-miserable. I should go to the store today. I’m probably not going to the doctor on Friday as the bloodwork Bri had last month is still in question-we have to wait for the bill so the family doctor can resubmit it.
Wish us luck and we’ll send it back to you!
Here’s a Mona Lisa card I made for a challenge to welcome spring! Mona is embossed in gold. I forgot how much fun embossing things are.
A small ‘I recommend’-
Shea body butter-it’s so nice to put on dry skin this time of year. I got some that was marked down and it was still fine and took away that dry skin itch.
