playing catch up again

What can I say, except I have been busy and no time to update blog. I have been Taxi service and DS#1 has had the computer in the evenings. He also was in drivers Ed and just finished that. He passed!! I have been stitching and reading. Watching Tv shows and movies. I am trying harder to update my blog now that school will be here in 2 weeks.



This is how far I have gotten on the snowy Forest evening Stocking. I had to put it away though as I am stitching on a Twisted oaks Designs model piece.




I stitched up LK June Stamp a few weeks ago.
I also went to a Cross stitch retreat. This was for Needleworkers Haven Proboard and it was in Victor NY. About 1 hour from my house. it ran from Friday til Monday and I had a blast. The LNS owner even opened up the shop for us on Sunday , for 2 hours. She is a great lady. She had coffee, tea and cookies for us as well. In the pic is: front-Linda, back: Shelleen Shelley, Ann, Vivian, Glynda and Karen.
We stitched this porcupine as a SAL during the weekend. I did finish him Sunday, while there and I will sew him on the back of the bag that we received at the retreat.
I stitched up another block on Year Full of Happy. it is June's block.
I also stitched up the LK April Block and finished that yesterday.

Today I will be stitching BC July Snapper.

I also have been getting back into reading. Just love books :-) Right now I am reading Cupid Inc by Michele Bardsley. Have only read a couple of pages.

Also getting ready for the new Fall Season on TV. I never watched House or Grey's Anatomy before so I have been getting the DVDs from netflix so I will be caught up to this season. So far i have watched Season 1 of Greys. and am now watching Season 1 of House. Then I will watch Season 2 of House since the new season starts Sept. 5. I will DVR it though til I get all the DVDs watched. Gey's 2nd season comes out mid Sept, on DVD so I will DVR the new season til I get the 2nd season watched. Anyone else a fan of these shows?

Some of you knew that DS#2 has not ben feeling well for a year. He had an upper GI done and he has reflux so is now taking Prilosec and feeling much better. He goes back to see if he is healing, in about 6-8 weeks. He hasn't thrown up in weeks so that is great!

Great news that you have a good diagnosis for your son and he's doing better!!

Life gets busy for me this time of year too, and I'm trying to catch up on blog reading. How those entries do pile up!! :D

I enjoy watching Grey's Anatomy. Been rather annoyed that they're changing the night it's broadcast, but hope the new show is good. I have really enjoyed my Sunday evening shows the last couple of years. :D
