Oooh, do I ever love the Academy Awards show!! It's like one of the columnists in the morning paper said, the Oscars are "the Super Bowl for women". 'Cept I love to watch the REAL Super Bowl too. Anyhoo, here's my $2 worth (inflation, you know).
George Clooney---ROBBED! Should've won for Michael Clayton, but looked good losing.
Tilda Swinton---awesome performance, deserving win.
Jon Stewart--class act for bringing back onstage Marketa Irglova, cowriter of Best Song, who didn't get a chance to say her thank-yous. I mean really!
Coen Brothers--always love their movies, 'specially O Brother Where Art Thou? and Fargo. I've GOT to get to the theater and see No Country For Old Men!
Marion Cotillard--mermaid dress was darling on her. Her acceptance speech was the best of the evening, too!
Favorite montage--the Best Picture winners for the past 79 years (and no, I don't remember ALL of them LOL!). Number 80 was No Country For Old Men.
This weekend was spent getting MIL moved into a different assisted-living facility. Sure hope this one works out. This is really wearing on DH. He is trying so hard to make things good for her.
Setting aside the Civil War blocks for a few days to get the applique borders finished for the Madeira jelly roll quilt. Would love to have it to "flimsy" stage before our trip--maybe even pinbasted or handed off to a longarmer.
Speaking of our upcoming trip, shopping must get done. In 16 days we'll be leaving for WARM!!! Let the countdown begin. First to Tucson, AZ, for a coupla days, then over to Mesa where we'll meet up with four dear friends to set out on a tour of Copper Canyon, Mexico, and points along the way. Vamos, amigos!
In honor of dreams of spring, snowmen got packed up this weekend, bunnies and chicks came out of hiding. Right here, right now, in KC, snow BAD--spring GOOD!
