A Sunny Sunday Morning

Image
Good Sunday morning to everyone!! I found what gets two kids (three, if you count my husband) up and moving on Sunday morning: Dunkin Donuts! I never saw three people so excited about a breakfast food in my life. Something to remember in the future, I think.

This past Thursday was Sit and Stitch at the Lazy Daisy, my favorite night of the month! That date is always written into my calendar in ink and I try very hard to schedule everything else around Lazy Daisy night. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't, but this month I went and had quite a bit of fun. There were not as many people there as there sometimes is, but it was a fun night, nonetheless. I picked up my $15.00 gift certificate to the shop, and promptly spent it. I forgot to take pictures of the new stash, but I picked up Hooked On Ice Cream by Handblessings (the same designer that did the Hooked On Chocolate piece that I did) and a Christmas tree design that I don't remember the particulars of.

I Won Something!

I won a giveaway!! This is a rarity for me, so you can understand my excitement when I shout from the rooftops that I won something! Kathy (http://kathystitchcomments.blogspot.com/) was doing a giveaway on her blog to celebrate the birthday of her puppy, Rory, and the prize was a gift certificate to your favorite ONS. I entered, thinking that so many people had already entered that there was no way I was going to win. Then the other day MJ was on the computer and he saw an e-mail titled "You Won Second Prize" and he says to me, "You don't know this sender, right?" He wanted to delete it thinking it was junk e-mail. I asked him to open it and when I started reading it I was stunned to see that I actually won something. A $15 gift certificate to Lazy Daisy! Now that was a great way to start the week, don't you think? Thank you, Kathy!! Sit and stich is next week and I'm sure I will find something to spend it on!

I realize that two posts within on…

Back In The Swing Of Things

It has been a while since I posted to my blog, but this week I finally got back into the swing of things around here. The stress of the accident and thinking of what could have been, well, to be perfectly honest, it threw me for a loop much worse that I ever thought it would. The whole first week we were back from vacation I laid on the couch and basically did nothing. The stress of everything that happened must have finally caught up with me because I wound up at the doctor's office with another sinus infection. It was hard to stitch for a few days because I felt pretty yucky, but that has passed and this past week I got myself up and moving, and I actually have things to show for it.

First thing is that we got a new car to replace the one that was totalled. I was sad to hear while I was on vacation that my 2002 Jeep, which I loved more that any car I ever owned, was no longer going to be part of my life. She was the best and I was sorry to hear that she had been totalled, …
