Coming Soon.....

a stitching update with a picture. As soon as my eysight returns to normal after my recent addiction to Bejeweled Blitz on Facebook. It is an ugly addiction, I just played for like an hour. I have no idea where my kid is, or how the baked potatoes I should have put in the oven an hour ago are going to get cooked, if I don't get off of this computer and go to the kitchen.

Stay tuned, or not????

Not A Lot of Stitching....

going on here. Just trying to get through the week and have things caught up for the weekends. The flu has hit Jon's school pretty bad this week. 151 were gone yesterday and 168 were absent today, that doesn't include teachers. So we are also trying to keep everyone well.

Anyway, this really hasn't bothered our attendance that much where I work. We seem to keep dodging the bullet somehow.

I do have an order coming from the Silver Needle. I would go and look at the site and think I didn't need anything I have enough, but finally I just said what the heck! and ordered it anyway.

Have a great week!

It's Neverending

I guess that is how I would describe life right now. It seems that we just run from one thing to another and then another. It finally got to the point that I stayed home from the football game Saturday just so I could be home. That doesn't happen very often. One of my favorite things to do is watch football and jump and scream like crazy--I don't care if it is in my living room or at an actual game. At times this has become an embarassing habit or mine for my husband and son to endure, but they are eventually getting used to it. It tends to make my mother down right mad at times, though, especially when we are on the phone and I scream bloody murder over something that happened. Anyway I digress from the subject at hand. We have just been busy and I am tired of it.

Jonathon had two sleepovers this weekend on Friday and Saturday nights, he did have a good time, but last night he didn't make it past 8:15 before he was hitting the hay.

I started a new stitching project, I tried to find the official name of it on the Silver Needle website so I didn't have to run upstairs and look, but I didn't see it one the sight. It is a Lizzie Kate pattern, one of the ABC patterns, not the Christmas one though. I hate going to the Silver Needle site, it always ends up costing me money. I see things I can't possibly live without. If you only knew how many unstitched things I have in my house I could not live without. One of these days though I am going to have it all stitched up. When I am about 125 years old I will have it done.

And, just so ou know I am going to be a Great Aunt for the second time either late tonight or sometime tomorrrow morning.

So on that note I will leave all of you to have a wonderful, happy week.

Aiden's Stocking



Here it is-dramatic pause- the finished product. Shelby and Aiden's stockings should be winging their way across the Pacific no later than Wednesday. They can pick them up at Grandpa and Grandma's house.

All of you have a great week.

Corn Maze Adventures



Getting started.



Which way do we go????



Corny and his pal Niblet. It isn't easy talking to ten year "cool" boys in to doing a photo like this, I did forget to mention I was putting it on the web for all to the world to see.

We headed up this afternoon to check out the corn maze. Both boys thought it was quite fun. I went through it for the short route and when we got to the end of that I took the first exit. They stayed in there and made it all the way to the other end taking the longer route. I was amazed at how well they did, they really worked together. When they came to a fork one would check out one direction, and then other would go the opposite way. Then they would figure out which way they needed to go. I kept thinking they would make good competitors on the Amazing Race.

Anyway, the house is almost clean, the laundry is almost done. We are waiting for the pizza delivery man, then we are heading up to the stadium for an evening of football. Hopefully, a winning evening, but this year that is always iffy.

Hopefully, I will have finished stocking to show off here soon. Have a good week.
