Pi Day

Today is Pi Day in case you didn't' know.  Other than that's it's been a fairly quiet week, better hours at work were the only thing in stitchings way, Except for today when I didn't touch Cindy, but that's because my sister and I went out on a photo day.  Now this was originally suppose to be her kidnapping me for a day or two long expedition, probably Thursday and Friday. But my schedule changed and I had to work friday  so then it became an day long excursion on Thursday with her coming up Wed night. But then her schedule changed and she couldn't come till Thursday evening. So today I was to get off at noon and we'd go somewhere, and then I had to work longer, so it became a quick trip to the wharf..... and then it rained and we went for coffee instead.
However after coffee the sun came out and back to the lake we went. so I didn't get any stitching done, but I did get pictures like this.
As for Cindy and Lannister, progress was made on both, in fact I finished the first page of Cindy, which is actually page 4 and now I've moved onto page 1
What I watched this week
The Brier Curling final - congratulations  Team Alberta.

West Wing S04 E11-15
Around the World in 80 Days - The Pierce Brosnon mini series of the 80’s he did several minis back then and I watched them all, I’m such a fan.

Antz - Probably the only Woody Allen movie I’ll ever own, this is cute, but not one of my favorites. In truth I forgot I had it and it is unlikely that I would have watched it again if I hadn’t started the movie project, might see if one of my niece or nephew would like it for their kids.
Arachnophobia - Like Antz I bought this in a video stores pre-viewed bargain bin, and have maybe watched it once. but what a fun movie. This is why I wanted to rewatch all my movies, I’m discovering some fun stuff.
The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets Nest - This may be my favourite of the three, I enjoy legal dramas, but I am a bit disappointed that after four Swedish subtitled movies recently, I haven’t managed to learn any Swedish 
Pompeii - A disaster movie so of course I was going to go, but it turned out to be a good one, but it did make me want to rewatch Spartacus.

  1. I left a comment here and now it's gone...hmmmm.

    Okay, so The Girl series (original) is far superior to the (as per usual) American re-make and again I ask WHY did someone feel they needed to remake the dang series here in the US? I'm adding Pompeii to my watch list so I can view it while trying to do something crafty.

    As for Cindy....I'm checking the pattern, ha, ha!

    1. The same thing just happened to me with the comment on Leonore's blog. I haven't watched the american remake yet though it is on my watch list, but I really enjoyed the Swedish ones.
      Pompeii will make you want to watch Spartacus, and Game of Thrones, and I really enjoyed it.
      I'm off work tomorrow and hoping to put some serious time in on Cindy.

  2. I have yet to read The Girl Who series or see any of the movies. I picked up the first one for $.50 at my brother's library book store so I'm going to give it a go.

    I want to see Pompeii already so definatly going to have to add this to my watch list. :)

    Progress looks great on Cindy! ^_^

  3. Woohoo for the page finish - I could use that on PT as a motivation-booster, but won't happen until the border is done. Lannister looks almost finished as well, it's coming out great on the black.

    Pompeii is on my need-to-watch-list as well, let's see if I manage to catch it at the cinema or if I need to wait for it to be released on DVD/InstantVideo....

    1. Lannister is almost done, possibly even tonight, if I stop playing on the computer and put something on to watch.
      Pompeii is a good one for the big screen so catch it at the theatre if you can.
