productive week

This is how much I have accomplished on BC Snappers as of last Sunday. I need to finish November and then start December. I am hoping to get quite a bit done on it this weekend.
I stitched on Snowy Forest Evening Stocking Tuesday morning - Thursday night and got alot accomplished. The bottom left just has a little bit of backstitching left on it.
I stitched on the Vermillion ornament, from the 2003 JCS ornament Issue. This I did on Monday the 25th in honor of Christmas. Should be done in October. Has a little bit of the beard to fill in then the backstitching.

I also finished reading A Wedding in December by Anita Shreve. it was ok, kind of slow. Now I am reading Cold Blooded by Lisa Jackson. So far it is good.

Have been watching DVD and TV shows. All caught up to Tuesday nights House. On Second season disc 2 of Grey's Anatomy. DS#1 has a friend that owns all seasons of Gilmore Girls and I have never watched that show so I will be borrowing them :-). I get a lot of stitching time in while watching DVDs LOL.

Today I am going to the LNS. I need to buy for a Pals Parcel and for the grab bag in Myrtle Beach. That's right , it is that time of year when I go to Myrtle Beach and have a Cross Stitch Pals reunion. I leave on the 13th and will be back around the 23rd. Taking my laptop so I can check emails and post on my blog.

I have been stitching away. I finished a model piece for Twisted Oaks Designs. I am still stitching sports ornaments on Mondays. Stitching on Snowy Forest Evening Stocking Tues-Thurs. BC Snappers Fri-Sun. I am on November Snapper so that has moved right along. I will post pics later.

I am now watching last seasons Grey's Anatomy , on DVD and DVRing this seasons til I am caught up. DS#1 has a friend who owns all the seasons of Gilmore Gilrs and I never watched them so i will be borrowing them and DVRing this seasons. DH told me I should watch Criminal Minds so I will be adding that to my TV viewing this year as well.
This past weekend was the apple Umpkin Festival and my church has beef on weck, soup and pies. I make the soup and made 8 pots total. We had about 1/2 of a beef pot and 1/2 of a turkey pot, left over so we did real well.
I am reading A Wedding In December by Anita Shreve, it is a little slow. Any USA members who love to read and share books please join my Readnswap Yahoo group. We would love new members. This group has been around for several years and i have read many books through the group.
2 weeks ago I ran the book Fair at the middle school and that went over really well. I did buy 2 PC games. Mall Tycoon 3 , which is a blast and Paws & Claws Pet Vet. it is fun as well.

So what does everyone watch on TV? I watch:
Live! with Regis and Kelly
Rachel Ray
The View
Megan Mullolly Show
General Hospital
Desperate Housewives
7th heaven
The Class
Gilmore Girls(DVRing)
Veronica Mars

I get more stitching done when the Fall Season starts and I only watch the Talk shows if I have time and if they have something good on it.

a finish

I stitched on BC September Snapper, all weekend and finished it . Was a quiet weekend here. Friday night DH, DS#2 and I went to a local high school football game. Was a very close score. Saturday was lazy. Today went to church and then stitched while watching House season 2 disc 1. I plan on reading more of the Angry Housewives eating Bon Bons, when I get off the computer.

This week will be super busy so not sure how much reading and stitching will get done. I am in charge of the PTO book fair this week so I will be working every day 10-12:30. Tomorrow night I have a bookcrossing meeting. Tuesday night DS#2 and I are going to an Aerosmith concert. Wednesday night is our middle school open house so I am running the book fair during that. Looks like Thursday and Friday night are free, so far LOL. I will need to sleep all next weekend LOL.

Another Stocking Day

I put in a few hours on Snowy Forest Evening Stocking. I also watched House season 1, Discs 5 & 6.
a few months back I had bought Rachel Rays Express Lane meals. I try one recipe a week and today was Candian Benny's. They came out pretty good. Canadian Bacon, whole grain bread, cheddar cheese, eggs and a tomato and heavy cream sauce. MMM
I also read a few more pages of Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons

Snowy Forest Evening Stocking

Todays progress went well. I would have gotten more done but a friend of mine called me and we were on the phone for 1 1/2 hours. I haven't talked to her in months. I also finished the model piece for Twisted Oaks Designs.
I did get to watch House season 1 Disc 4. Tonight I watched Bones, anyone else watch it? I also read quite a bit of Angry Housewives eating Bon Bons. I plan on reading some more when I get done here.
The kids had a good day at school. DS#2 will be late tomorrow though, as he has a dr. appointment.

Todays Goals:
finish model piece- done
work on Stocking- did
watch House season 1 disc 4 - done
watch Bones - done

First Day of School

The kids went back to school today. DS#1 is a Junior this year. DS#2 is a Freshman. They sure are growing up.
it was nice getting up at 6 am again and getting things done around the house. I had all my emails and bulletin boards read before I headed out the door to Curves, came home and booted up the computer while doing some cleaning. Read all of my friend's blogs and left comments on some.
I have a model to finish, probably about 30 minutes left on it. Then will pull out the stocking to stitch on. I also have season 1 disc 4 of House and disc 5 and 6 will be in the mail today.
Tonight Bones is on so I will also watch that.
Reading Angry Housewives Eating Bon Bons by Lorna Landvik and am enjoying that.
I am hoping to post a pic tonight of my stocking progress.
