Wedding gift and what I'm reading

Wow! It has been so long since I have posted. I have been busy knitting and even doing some scrapbooking- but my most recent finish was a cross-stitched bread cloth for a wedding present - and I forgot to take a picture of it. I intended to get something off the registry but when I went to shop last night there was nothing in my price range so I 'punted' and started a bread cloth. The wedding was this afternoon at 3 p.m.!
I stitched from 8 p.m. until 1:30 a.m. and was almost done. This morning DD19 had an eye doctor appointment, so I carried it along and was able to get it finished.
I had knitted a couple cotton dish rags which I intended to put with a bucket and some cleaning supplies that the bride and groom had on their registry, but that was all taken when I went shopping -- hence the bread cloth.
The wedding was beautiful. The bride is a co-worker of DH and it took place in the town where he grew up which is close to the town where I grew up so we saw a lot of old friends. We also stopped by the nursing home and saw his older sister for a few minutes between the wedding and dinner. (Rhonda we saw you in the yard cutting grass and even honked but you did not hear us and we were pressed for time :-) Your flowers look beautiful! )
I just finished reading, The Pact by Jodi Picoult. It was a little disturbing but an interesting twist. I have started another one by her, The Perfect Match. DD17 and DD19 had both read The Pact so it was interesting talking to them about the book and the characters.
I have Cleo Coyle's Latte Trouble in my backpack that I carry back and forth to work so I have it handy to read on the commute and at lunch when I get the chance. I also carry some knitting project in case I want to work on something. Keeps my hands busy :-)
Well, better get off to bed - too late last night and then had to be up at 6 a.m. for our monthly Titus 2 gathering. We got home from the wedding and had a good talk with DD17 and DD19 about a lot of things going on but now everyone is settling into bed - and it is after 11 p.m. so guess I should do so too.

Mary, sorry I missed your drive by. I thought I heard a car honk once, but didn't think it was for me. I was actually too sick and tired to be mowing, but did it any way. Was SO tired of being in the house and the yard was so inviting. I do love to mow, too! ~~Rhonda :)
