To start with, Mum and I went to the chiropractor together where I got a fine adjustment and met another October baby. The list grows...there are more October babies out there than I thought!
From there we went to Rual King--which is a fun store to meander through as it is something of a cross between a feed store and a hardware store with a little clothing thrown in for good measure. Mum and I looked at some boots (I'm supposed to be getting another pair for my birthday! Yay!!), but I didn't like any of those. Then Mama told me about a real pretty black and red pair she'd been looking at on the internet and I think I decided on them. (Grandma gave me some money in my birthday card to put towards boots too--but I may just put that in the bank.)
After that we stopped in at the Salvation Army where I got this very pretty red formal. It does need a small amount of work on the top to make it modest enough to actually wear, but it fits perfectly.
Then we went to Bob Evan's for lunch where I had an "almost mooing" steak. I like my steak rare and this one was rare--like almost raw in the center. It tasted fine, so I went ahead and ate it. Obviously, there was nothing wrong with it, because I didn't get sick! :D
From there we went to Jo-Ann's for fabric for me. I'll explain the situation...see, we are going to the Reformation Day Faire in Illinois this year. Down in Florida, I had gotten some gorgeous red wool for a particular dress. Well, as of Tuesday evening there were some particulars about said design that got discussed and it was determined we should do something else for me. Soo....I had to get some more material. I may still get the red wool (redesigned as an overdress) if we have time, but for now, I'm getting a mustard colored kirtle. I really like the color...so I'll be fine if the wool doesn't get made up, although I really want it.
We dropped by the grocery on the way home and then after we got here, Savannah and I fitted and cut out my kirtle. Even though this and the other four sewing projects in the works are officially Liberty Seamstress projects, I decided to pitch in and help with mine (we doing only have about a week now to get everything done). I have the kirtle pretty much all sewn up. I guess I'm going to learn how to do the placket today (but there is no way I'm going to do the eyelets--period), and I will do the hemming. I really actually kind of like hemming.
Then...later...in the evening...we took my delicious birthday supper out to the apartment and had a "party" with Grandma and Grandpa!! Supper consisted of lamb roast (yummy!!), squash, "fuax"-totoes (califlower done like mashed taters--very tasty), tomatoes, and pinapple. I think I ate almost all of that by myself. I was very hungry and must admit I ate like something of a glutton, but I wasn't overfull for all that. For dessert, Katherine made me a carrot cake (grain-free; these coconut flour based breads and cakes are DE-licous!) with cream cheese frosting. Very, very good! (Can you tell I like food?)
After supper, we got a little goofy...
