Beautiful day!

It is absolutely gorgeous today. The sun is shining and the temperatures are climbing. If I heard the weatherman right last night, it is supposed to be in the 60's by tomorrow. Hip Hip Hooray!!!!!

I've been busy catching up on all the things that I wasn't doing while I was off having fun. I still have about 60 Carhart jackets to embroider logos on. I've saved them until last because they are a b*&ch to hoop. The weight of the material is almost impossible to deal with. I charge more for them but even then I'm not sure I will agree to do that type jacket again. Most items I can hoop, put on the machine, get it going and then piddle around with other things while it stitches out. I have to sit right by the machine when the jackets are stitching, holding up the weight of the jacket so it doesn't pull out of the hoop. Well, enough of that boring stuff.

The day we left for our vacation, Patti and I treated ourselves to a manicure and pedicure. This was a first for both of us. The poor girls at the spa were in stitches laughing at us. We were like teenagers, oohing, ahhing and giggling every time they touched our tootsies.

The guys were waiting for us at home, doing the fun stuff like loading luggage, turning off irons and coffee pots, picking their nose, etc.

We wanted to show off our pretty feet and nails so we asked Jim to take a picture. Ya can't trust a man. He took the opportunity to bring home the point of just how much Patti and I are alike.

Here is the picture he took...

LMAO, what a great picture! WTG Jim!

I checked the 10 day forecast, I believe it just might get up to 50 Degrees here soon. But I won't hold my breath. By the time that day comes, it will have changed and we'll see 30 and snow, lol.

Hope your weather man is right... They often aren't though.

I've never had a proper manicure or anything... Can't say I mind... My Mam has a habit of bringing her stuff down and somehow getting me to give in and allow her to work on my nails, but it doesn't happen often (thankfully). I don't see the point in having mine done... I'm not even close to being a girly girl so I'm usually barefoot and getting dirty. Plus, I'm a nail biter. So there's no point doing my feet because they'll just get dirty within a few minutes, and there's no point doing my hands because within a few seconds they'll either be dirty or I'll be chewing my nails. LOL!

Still, I hope you guys enjoyed and felt better after it. :)

I see Jim isn't the photographer in the family :)

Its 19F here today - I don't think the high got close to what it was supposed reach. The forecast says 50F-ish over the weekend. So we will have another 30F+ degree swing in less than a 10 days.

I hope you got all those Jackets finished up!! :) I'm happy to see you back!

Love the pic. LOL

It's 20 and very cold outside today. The guys at the mill said it felt a lot colder. They came in several times this morning to warm up between customers. (no heat in the mill and it's usually colder in there than outside anyway)

Carhart jackets are very heavy so that job has got to be a real chore to do. Hope they all turn out okay for you.

Had a manicure before, but I dont usually bother. My nails are continually breaking off (between typing nearly all day and the times when Im doing alot of handwashing when Im doing crafts..), so why bother? As for a pedicure...I dont like anyone touching my feet.
