The Weend Ends

I love the weekend, and I hate it ending every Sunday night. Finally, I had a full day at home today, to enjoy my new chair and work on Tour. Here it is as of bed time tonight, and once again I didn't want to put it down!!!!



I saw Avatar in 3D on Saturday with my Mum and Christin. I don't understand how/why so many people are in awe over this movie. Its just Dances With Wolves in the future... really. The head of security fellow reminds me of the character from Apocalypse Now whose line is "I love the smell of napalm in the morning". Yes the 3D was cool, yes the CGI was very impressive and artistically beautiful. But I did not walk away from this movie amazed as so many others say they were.

Here are my weekend pictures :


Saturday January 23 - We had an overnight frost again, I took this picture on the way to pick up my Mum.


Sunday January 24 - Since I wasn't going anywhere today my subjects were limited. But then Hunter was so cute, sitting there in my bathtub (ignore the soap scum!) he wanted me to turn on the tap just a tiny bit so he could have a drink.

Yay! Good for you, having a stitchy day. Your TDeM looks fab as usual. Love the pictures, especially the frosty one, but Hunter made me laugh, he looks like he's waiting for you to run him a bath!

Christine said...

What a huge progress on Tour! You'll have it finished in no time ;-) Have fun. Ann

Katri said...

Great progress on Tour! And another lovely photo of Hunter, he's so cute!

I saw Avatar before Christmas, and even though I liked it, I wasn't overly thrilled about it either. Basic plot situated in a new, different world (I loved the scenery)... It was a good movie, period.

Giovanna said...

I know how you feel about Sundays ending. You're doing an amazing job on TdM. Love your shots too.

Nicola said...

Ooooooh, that's great progress on Tour Dani!

Dee said...

What a beautiful "frosty" photo.

Hunter has such a pleading look in his eyes. LOL

Heidi said...

The frost is beautiful contrasted with the blue of the sky! I love to stop in and see your pictures!!!

claudia said...

My weekend just started and I am already dreading my "Monday" morning!
Love, love, love your pictures. Especially the one with Hunter...great contrast of color. He is so photogenic too!

As usual, I am enjoying your progress photos of your current BAP ... TdM is coming along beautifully, you can really see the progress since the last photo. I haven't seen Avatar yet but I have gotten very mixed reviews. My son Dan is in your camp; my daughter and her significant other are in the WOW camp. I think I will wait for the DVD. 3-d movies and trifocals don't mix well anyway. Hunter is as photogenic as ever though I don't think anything will top the photo with just his eyes being clearly visible as he stares out a darkened window ... Love the nature shot, you must be a whiz at F-stops and lens and all that ... people with that skill always amaze me. I remain happy just to get an image in proper focus.

Tour is really something! Awesome stitching Dani!

Julie said...

Tour looks great, so glad you managed a whole day relaxing and sttiching in the new chair.

Hunter looks so cute, i have a kitty who will only drink fresh water straight from the tap!

Michelle said...

Great progress on Tour - you will have it finished in no time!

I also saw Avatar in 3D and I absolutely loved everything about it! What can I say - I am one of those Sci-fi and Fantasy nut jobs!

Hunter is adorable :)

I really love Tour !!!

Hunter is so cute in the bathtub !!!

Von said...

Glad you had a nice stitching time this weekend - getting that new chair broken in right! I can't believe what a difference my new chair has made for me, not that I get in more stitching, but my back is happier in a chair that fits. :) May you spend many happy hours planted in your chair!

Heidi said...

Yay you got to sit and enjoy your chair and stitch! Hunter is so cute!

Karen said...

Love the frost on the branches, Dani. Very cool. Your cat is beautiful and that a great picture of him in the tub! Tour looks amazing!

Vonna said...

Wow...Tour is just gorgeous :)
And I always wait until a movie is on DVD, but I've also wondered about the hoopla over the movie.
:)

Carolyn NC said...

And I guess that's why I haven't gone to see Avatar yet! Tour looks great and I have a cat just like this one, bathtub and all!

Shelleen said...

I am one that just loved Avatar 3D. I did not see Dances with Wolves as I don't care for Costner

Anne S said...

Tour is coming along beautifully - it's so nice to see this one back out again :) Love your frost photo - it's awesome! :D Excuse the signature, Blogger won't let me comment with my WP blog today :(

Claire said...

Hunter is so pretty:) Tour's looking great girl! Awesome:)

Kathy A. said...

Lovely progress on Tour hon. that new stitching chair is obviously helping.
Me - I'm a WOW for Avatar. Even Leo went and saw it.

Karin said...

Great progress! I thought that Avatar was impressive for the special effects, but that the story line wasn't all that different from other movies. I couldn't imagine seeing it without the 3D effects.

Sara said...

Great progress on Tour and I love your frost picture!

CritterLady62 said...

Tour is looking fantastic! Funny how the critters seem to like the water fresh from the tap. I have one that races to the shower every time I turn it off so he can lick the bottom of the stall. He (and the others) then wait for me to turn the faucet on so they can all have their drinkie poos.

Sally said...

Wow I can't believe how much you've got done on Tour! It's looking absolutely fantastic!

Suzanne said...

Your making such amazing progress on Tour.

I haven't seen Avatar, but I am not sure that it's something that I am really keen to see anyway. Everyone who has seen it has raved on about it. Maybe it's one of those movies where the graphics are so good that people seem to gloss over poor plot line and bad acting.

Lillie said...

You've made great progress with the Tour. Hunter is so cute...loved his eyes!!LOL

Lynn said...

I love that picture of Hunter lurking in the tub! Clarisse doesn't seem to like hanging out in the bathroom.
You're making some amazing progress on Tour! It's really shaping up.

Terri said...

Your stitching as always Dani is wonderful. Hunter is so cute in the tub.
