Saturday Stuff ~

I am a master at frittering away the day.  I was going to go play (antique) today, but got too late a start with grandson here, so after taking him to his dad's, I thought I'd get so much done.  Oh, the best laid plans of mice and men!
 
Last night Jake and I went to Boo at the (Cleveland) Zoo.  It was a beautiful evening with temperatures in the 60's so we were very lucky.  Just a few sprinkles started when we were making our very long trek back to the car.  (Sorry for the lousy pictures!)
 
 
The Koala exhibit is one of my favorites.  They had just brought him out a bit earlier so he was sitting in a tree munching on some leaves.
 

New to the zoo this year is a carousel with the most wonderful carved animals.  Jake chose to ride the shark . . .


. . . and I was on a rabbit.


This was a really cool "glow" show.  It was in a dark room and the characters were wearing black clothing outlined in lights is the best way to describe it.  It was really fun.


Here is the progress on my Santa and Sheep rug.  Not as much as I had hoped for, but at least I've gotten a bit hooked.  My goal was to finish hooking all but the outside border this weekend, but I don't think it will happen.  This darned machine just sucks me in and uses so much of my time . . . sigh.
 
 
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)

To me, the zoo is more fun than stitching so you made a good choice!

The Zoo was the way to go with your grandson and a handsome and powerful dude he is... look at those abs.
I bet he felt powerful.
How fun to ride a rabbit and him a shark. You have lots of rugs anyway. This playing stuff is more important. Life is really short, I know... I'm getting old.

Have a great week.
Hugs,

Looks like a fun way to spend the day, we have a zoo that is doing lighted pumpkins along the walks. Your santa rug is beautiful.

I think that looks like a very fun time. I am so aware of this machine too. I could get so much more done if I didn't want to know what was going on in the world. :)
Maybe you can have a good day hooking tomorrow. :)
