Valentine Monkey

I'm a couple of days late with my Valentine post, but hope everyone had a great day. This monkey - a gift from Jim - greeted me by my computer. My cats were very curious thinking perhaps another kitty was joining the household.

My star blocks for Judy's one hour sew are almost done. The clock moved faster than I did last night, but I still have seventeen finished and the other three are sewn strips.

It's the middle of February and I'm really craving some warm weather. There is hope for temps to reach the freezing zone next week, so spring must be just around the corner. The Tigers' pitchers and catchers have reported to spring training in Lakeland, Florida.

Yesterday, Jim and I enjoyed seeing the new movie "Music & Lyrics" starring Hugh Grant and Drew Barrymore. It won't be an Academy Award nominee, but it made us laugh .

Our son, JJ, is coming home tonight for the family card club tomorrow night at my folks. We get together once a month to play a euchre tournament with three generations of family members. There are sixteen of us that compete and it's a great way to stay in touch with everyone.

I think I'm going to have to add that movie to my list -- it looks like a cute one. Hope you get warm weather soon. I think everyone is starting to feel a touch of cabin fever.

What a cute monkey. I've been thinking about taking DH to see the movie. I like silly romantic movies.
