It's been a good birthday weekend in spite of the fact I've been sick.

Started with a wonderful SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEE Mail package from [personal profile] hp5freak and a Molly afghan.

Friday night after work, Joe took me to Bravo's, a small italian restaurant that we love to go to in Fort Smith, AR.  It was delicious with creamy garlic soup and salad.  A bruschetta for each of us and I ordered linguini olio agile while Joe had tortellini al fresco.  Both were great with some tiramisu for dessert!

Managed to get laundry done Saturday and organize some yarn for Ravelry stash log before having to lay down not feeling well.

Sunday after church though, we headed out to Altus and Kelt's Pub for brunch.  Joe took a book and I took crochet and we had a leisurely meal of fruit compote, eggs benedict, potatoes o'brien and black & tans followed by coffee.  On the way home, we stopped in Fort Smith at Hastings and for my birthday, Joe got me

    and   

Monday, we were back in Fort Smith at Sweet Bay Coffee House for lunch and to meet up with [personal profile] quietish and her family on their way back home from their weekend with  [profile] sociallyawkrd   As you can see the hobbits were quite fun and cute.  Especially Jamie and her cookie that she's pictured with.  Well it was supposed to be a cookie before she quite nicely conned her mother.  It seems when they went to the counter, J informed Mom there were no cookies so was able to select chocolate cake instead.  Mom pays turns to leave and bet you can't guess what Mom sees in the display case?  *lol*  Nice movie J!




And Rosemary gifted me with some beautiful yarn for my birthday!  SQUEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE


Today, more SQUUUUUUUUUEEEEEEEEEEEEE mail arrived from West Virginia too in the form of a little black dragon with red trim from the lovely [profile] jennbrad52

As [personal profile] quietish has mentioned we had an AWESOME time at Mugglefest 2007.  Once again the Norman Public Library (Yay Rebecca!)  went all out and with the support of local businesses, provided an great day of Harry Potter fun and magic for area families.  Rosemary worked the information table during the afternoon and I was the prefect for the Care of Magical Creatures class.  One of the demonstrations involved creatures I cannot stand and am totally terrified of... he went to the FARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR end of the room away from where I would have to watch the door from me.  Obviously, as you have guessed by now there will be no photos of that guy in here.  However two wonderful officers from the Norman PD brought their partners, Pablo and Lux who were the most pleasant officers I have ever met.  Course I wasn't doing anything illegal with them around.  Two very beautiful german shepherds.

Pablo )

 At the end, each student received their own magical creature, a pygmy puff, to care for.  Over 300 pygmy puffs found a home.


Of course Lady Macbeth was with me and did a bit of fangirlin'


Ok Ok so I did too :)

HatP )


However, so did Emily, the Merch lady for HatP!  [personal profile] hp5freak had created some great little cookbooks she gave us at PR.  She let me have a few extras and I shared one with Emily who immediately began squeeing and fangirling [personal profile] hp5freak's creativity!


However, we did find some unusual looking fans at Mugglefest!  *giggles*

A long but wonderful day!
Oh yea and what did I do between CoMC sessions... well, here's something you don't see every day Molly making Mollys!

Ok, you know all those photos I would have posted over the past two weeks while I was in Virginia if I had brought the right camera cord with me?  Well here they are!

The coffee shop in Covington.  A really nice place with wifi and good coffee and food.

   

   

My son joined his sister and I there.
Of course no trip would be complete without Lady Macbeth and Vladimir the Puffskein :D

   

Also went to the community college some days and as you can see Jonathan and his friends have fun in their spare time :D



And in the evenings, I crocheted as you can tell from the 50 ashies, 2 molly sweater backs, and 4 molly front panels :D

   


      

And what has to be the most wonderful desk set up I've ever found in a motel.  It was at the News Inn, in Bowling Green where I stopped the first time I headed home last weekend.

Spent this weekend on the road-- literally.  Left very early Saturday morning for Jackson, KY where we spent Saturday evening enjoying time with the Jackson Christian Church members and Joe preached Sunday morning.  Had a nice surprise when we looked outside our hotel room Sunday morning:


and


And the church is really nice



Found a very interesting home coming through Lexington!


and I never knew Lexington KY was so close to Eastern Europe! 


But it is good to finally be back home after over 1700 miles driving!

Discovered that Sweet Bay Coffee House has celtic music on the second Sunday of the month from 2-4 pm. So the other day, we took ourselves up there and had a wonderful time.

Of course, had to have a cup of Cafe Au Lait to remind us of upcoming visits to Cafe Du Monde!



The musicians played a variety of celtic songs and instruments. 





And if the bodhran player looks familiar, you've seen him in my photos from Kelt's where he plays the harp as well!  And had some knitting with me, managing to complete the ribbed cuff for a hat while there.



Lady Macbeth even took off dancing to one of the more livelier numbers!  (With a little help from the bodhran player's lovely wife, Norma!





A wonderful way to spend an afternoon!

About 80 miles from here is the nicest, most authentic UK Style pub ever -- "Kelt's" Since hubby had to work for Halloween/Samhain, we took off and spent the Sunday before at Kelt's for Brunch. Delicious food. Wonderful celtic harpist throughout the afternoon. It could not have been better
