No Lunch at Applebee's, New Outfit and SFD Blouse

My lightning fast mind realized this morning that I am in "Fast Internet Land", and I can actually upload a video in just a few minutes.

Unfortunately, I didn't have much to tell you.  I wanted to show you my cute new outfit from JC Penney's and my latest cotton blouse, which is no big deal.  Just new.  Sure-fit Designs, of course.

Here it is:

I WAS going to go back to JCP to get the turquoise version of this outfit, BUT Applebee's decided to starve us today.  FIRST -- and this should have been a big clue -- the front door was locked!  We had to walk around to the other door to get in.  We told a guy inside that the door was locked, and he told some girl "the door is STILL locked", as though he had already told her once.

Then we sat in our assigned booth and Mike came over to wait on us.  I ordered from the picture of a yummy-looking pork chop, green beans and sweet potatoes.  Margaret ordered a salad.  THIRTY MINUTES LATER, we still had no dinner.

I decided to motion to Mike and ask him if he might know the whereabouts of our dinner.  He told me it would be right out, and the Manager would bring it.  TEN MORE MINUTES later, Mike came back to our table to inquire as to whether or not our meals had arrived -- which OBVIOUSLY, had not!

Mike went somewhere and returned again.  He told us he was terribly sorry, but he had NEGLECTED to put our orders in.  He wanted to know if we STILL wanted to eat!  Of course, we still wanted to eat, but we didn't have enough time.  We decided it shouldn't take too long for them to bring us a salad.  Evidently, it would take too long, because the manager came back and wanted to know if she could bring us some soup.  Margaret told them to FORGET the salads and just bring us some soup.  The soup eventually arrived, but it was in a tiny bowl.  I could have eaten three times as much!  There was no charge, so we just ate it and left.  I came back home to fix myself some more lunch, so I never made it to JCP.

We certainly won't be going back to Applebee's!  I hate that because it used to be our favorite place to go.

I am now going to go back to my sewing room and finish the blue blouse you saw in the video.  I decided on the blue buttons.

Be back soon.

Hugs, Joy


  1. Love the colour of your activewear.
    I also like the blue buttons on your blouse.
    Happy sewing :)

  2. How is that new Quilt Path computer?

  3. Dear Joy: Do you know that the blogger on joyful expressions is using your 'joyful-expression' logo on her Printrist (misspelled) account. She is sales gift cards or scrapbooking stuff. She goes by Jennifer on this site. It may be something or it may not, but I just wanted to let you know.. This is not the first time that I have come across it.

  4. Yes, I see that. Don't know that there is anything I can do about it. Thanks for letting me know though.
    Hugs, Joy

  5. Joy,
    Love your new outfit. I had a JC Penney's gift card, so I bought a red one for myself. Also, thanks for the information about Sure-Fit Designs. I ordered the dress kit and am working on a blouse muslin. Loved all of your previous posts and read them all.
