The past few days I have been stitching , reading and watching Netflix DVDs.
Stitching on Joy Tree Ornament by M Designs.
Reading Sweet Revenge by Diane Mott Davidson , which is really good.
Watched Griffin & Phoenix, which was awesome. Carolina Moon, based on a Nora Roberts book and was really good ,and Tara Road based on a book by Maeve Binchy, which was good. I have Santa Clause 3 sitting here for today. Look for cross stitch pics this week :-)

Monday my family got together with my sis and BIL at my parent's house. I received 3 Racheal Ray frying pans and the DVD collection Christmas Televison Favorites. Then all my aunts, uncles and cousins showed up, in the evening ,at my parent's. They had a grab bag exchange but we didn't do that as funds were low. But we had a great time.
Christmas day we slept in. Scott got me a fairie t shirt and calendar, dear form slippers. Justin & Alexbought me cranberry bath stuff from The Body Shop. Dylan bought me pedicure stuff and bath scented Moonlight Path from Bath & Body Works. Dylan's girlfriend bought me Honey Shea bath and body stuff. I sure will smell good.
We had a white Christmas , which is perfect. For those of you who don't get snow, I feel sorry for you because there is nothing more perfect than snow on Christmas with all the Christmas lights and carols.
Yesterday was back to work. I am getting caught up on laundry and cleaning as well.
I started stitching M Designs Joy Tree from the 2005 JCS Ornament issue. I watched the DVD Zodiac, which was good.
I am reading Sweet Revenge by Diane Mott Davidson and am listening to Motor Mouth by Janet Evanovich. This is a sequel to Metro Girl and a little better as well. No more words NASCAR GUY even though he is in this book as well.
Tonight I plan on watching Carolina Moon on DVD, which is a Nora Roberts novel. Will stitch on M Designs Joy Tree.

Putting stitched gifts together and watching TV.
CJ , I would love a spool of 032, thank you very much. You can email me email@example.com
I finished reading Twelve Sharp and Lean Mean Thirteen by Janet Evanovich and finished listening to Metro Girl by Janet Evanovich. I am getting ready to read Coming Out by Danielle Steel and listening to Motor Mouth by Janet Evanovich.
I finished the Gilmore Girls series on DVD. Was sad to see that end. Now I have to catch up on Netflix and with the shows on hiatus because of the strike and Christmas season I am hoping to watch a lot of movies.
I have been stitching on Mill Hill's Flying High and on the Santa Fishing Stocking.

Dylan has some pain and swelling but doing fine.
I ended up going to the LNS and got most of what I need but I am almost out of kreiniks 032 and I need 2-3 spools of that so will have to order online. Plus she doesn't carry Stitchy Kitty designs and I want the new snowman Trio. Then we went to a mall so Dylan and Justin could get some Christmas shopping done. Then off to Joanne's and I bought some fiberfill and 3 wooden boxes for Christmas gifts.
I crashed when I got home and the storm started around 7 pm and another front is on the way today so we are supposed to end up with 1-2 feet of snow all together. I want to put together some ornaments for gifts.
Thursday, December 13, 2007
Meanwhile, while I was at work. Scott called me and said that Dylan's finger is worse than they thought and he has to have surgery tomorrow. I told him that I couldn't miss work. There is only 3 of us in the whole place and my supervisor is out tomorrow. The other lady works less hours than I do because she takes kids to school and picks them up from school. But they told me that Dylan is more important than my job so to take the day off and the one lady will have her daughter home, from college so she can help her at work. Did I tell you how great these women are that I work with. They said that I am a mommy and that my kids come first. We also have been having furnace problems at work. But I won't even go into that.
So on the way home from work Scott wanted his deer pictures developed. So I took my memory card in and printed up 2 pics and he could not believe how fast it was. Yes Scott is computer and electronically illiterate. Then he asks if I can buy him supper and he wants chinese so away we go and pick up chinese and burger King for Dylan, yes he actually went to work with his hand all bandaged up.
I plan on reading and watching TV for the rest of the evening.
I am reading Twelve Sharp by Janey Evanovich and am about halfway through the book. Very funny.
Supernatural, on the CW, is a new episode tonight so I will watch that and stitch on Fishing Santa Stocking.
Wednesday, December 12, 2007
Dylan had his new girlfriend over and the ex kept calling him and crying. I told him he will lose the new girlfriend if he keeps taking her calls. But what do I know LOL.
I finished reading The Case of the Roasted Onion by Claudia Bishop. The main character is a vet and this was first in the series. I gave it a 4/5.
I am now reading Twelve Sharp by Janet Evanovich and plan on reading more tonight.
We have a storm coming in tomorrow afternoon and we are supposed to get 4"-8". It will come down fast and be hard to see so pray that it hits after I get home from work. Otherwise Scott will have to pick me up from work. Nothing else going on here and 2 days of no stitching time :-(
Not working for 18 years spoiled me and I got so much more done. I have no energy to do anything and less time to do it in. Insomnia would come in handy sometimes.
Tuesday, December 11, 2007
Friday I woke up feeling blah, sinuses I think. So I didn't go to Curves. Went to work but got worse so I left at noon. I got home and crawled into bed. The kids got home at 3 and what do they do? Ask me questions:
Dylan:Mom, did dad cash my paycheck?
Me: I don't know he has been hunting all day.
10 minutes , after I fell back asleep
Justin:Mom why are you home already and in bed?
Me:I am sick and trying to sleep.
Now I am awake so I might as well get up. DH also knows that I am home sick as I had called him when I left work. He calls me at 5 pm. Wants to know if I want to have dinner with his family. No, I am sick, DUH! Dylan also has a friend crashing for the night. Dylan comes home, from the neighbors with a swollen finger. Was piling wood and someone threw a piece which pinched his finger between 2 pieces of wood.
Saturday we get up. My car is going in the shop because it likes to stall and the engine light is on. So I take it next door for them to work on it. Dylan gets up for work and says he thinks his finger is broken, Scott thinks it is dislocated. Well Dylan has to be at work and we are down to 1 vehicle. So Scott drops Dylan off at work and then comes pick me back up, I drop Scott off to work Dylan's job and take him to the emergency room. They do an xray and his finger is broken and dislocated. OUCH!! So they put it in a splint and have to put the finger back into place. Now I can watch my kids get stitches, have blood drawn, ect. Watching them do this to my child's finger is a no go. So I watch Dylan's face and his face gets real white and his eyes are funky and he almost passed out. Now his finger is all better and says he will take me out for lunch. So we pick up lunch for Scott as well. Drop that off to him and find out my car is done. They put in a new fuel filter and spark plugs. I drive it and it is still not all better. So they put in new spark plug wires. Mean time I go back and pick up Scott from work and then go and pick up the Christmas tree. Bring that home and Scott takes Dyaln's friend home. I fall asleep on the couch, knowing that we have a Christmas party at 6pm and I still need a shower. When I wake up 2 hours later, Scott is still not home because the gas station was so busy that he helped out there for a little bit. I get my shower, he comes home and gets his shower and out the door we go for the Christmas party. Now I had planned on sleeping all day so I would feel better. That did not happen.
Sunday was a little better and I did sleep in. Justin even brought Dylan home at 9:30pm, from work so I could go to bed early. Great kid that he is.
Did I mention that 2 weeks ago Dylan and his girlfriend broke up? I was so thrilled but they were still hanging together all the time. I don't like her or her family. Well Monday he txts me from work about a girl coming over, after school. I said sure. This girl is very pretty and polite. I liked her alot. They are now going out and Dylan is such a happier kid without the ex in his life. She was a very depressing person and never smiled or joked around. This new girl is all smiles and very talkative. So I am thrilled for him.
My stitching and reading has taken a back burner to my getting rest so I will feel better. it is just sinuses and sudafed will help, if I remember to take it.
Today I leave for work and my engine light is on again so I call Scott and ask him if I can get a new car LOL. He said to leave mine on the railroad tracks LOL. I love my car but not to happy with it at the moment. Dylan's new girlfriend is here again and I hoping to decorate the tree and maybe stitch tonight.
Well I guess I talked all of your eyes off so I will go. Such drama for just a few days of no posting LOL.
Tuesday, December 04, 2007
Last night I hunkered down with the warmth and didn't leave the house.
I finished the book Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton and loved it. Then I started reading The Case of the Roasted Onion by Claudia Bishop.
I stitched a few hours on Fishing Santa stocking and getting quite a bit accomplished on it.
I watched a DVD Gilmore Girls season 7 disc 3.
Well I have to go and wait for DH to come pick me up for work.
Sunday, December 02, 2007
Last night Justin called me and said he just hit a deer but he didn't see any damage to the car. Scott and I told him to call the police anyways. He is ok and there is just a small dent in the fender and some plastic broken off of a headlight but the light works. Glad that he is ok. Not sure about the deer though as they couldn't find it.
Today I got up early and went on the computer to read emails, blogs and BB. Then stitched on MH Flying High while watching Gilmore Girls Season 7 Disc 2. When that DVD was done I decided to read Knit One, Kill Two by Maggie Sefton. I am hoping to finish it before I fall asleep. This is a Cozy Mystery and a series that I will definately want to continue. Then back to stitching and watched Desperate Housewives. OMG it was so good and left you hanging at the end and with this writers strike who knows when it will be on again.
Ruth , I would love Halloween Fairy when you are done with it. Is there anything that I can send you in exchange? Thank you so much.
Old Yankee Stitcher, Knit One, Kill Two is a great book and you should read it.

I alos pulled out Fishing Santa Stocking, to stitch on while watching TV.
Kyle XY - 8/20 8/27 9/3
Desperate Housewives 11/25
TV tonight was Shrek The Halls Christmas special. Very cute!
At work we are getting ready for the big move into the new building. The supervisor and other woman that I work with, packed and took some things over today. I helped as well. I can't wait for the new move. We are in a really old building that is freezing and we have to share the bathroom which is not that great and several times my supervisor has walked in on a guy because he doesn't close the door. He must think he is home. the new building is just for our business so there is just the 3 of us there. Will be so nice. So when we are done working tomorrow then we have to help move. We are hoping that there will be enough guys to move the big things as we can't do that.
Most of us stitchers joke about having reached SABLE (stash acquired beyond life expectancy), but have you thought about what you’d like done with your stash after your death? Do you want it to reach other stitchers who will love it, too? Would your family know what to do with it or recognize its value?
How well organized is your stash –would someone be able to come in and put together a sale easily, or would it require lots of organizing work ahead of time? What would you like to see done with the funds collected from such a sale, i.e., should funds go to your family, to a charity or charities of your choice, to a charity or charities of your family’s choice, etc.?
Are there certain items in your stash which are rare and highly desired by stitchers that might make a much larger amount of money if sold on eBay? Have you done anything to designate which items these more valuable ones are to guide your family in how to handle them? Who would you tell your family should handle such a sale so that they don’t have to do it themselves? Have you done anything to make these thoughts known to others, either through discussions or through a codicil to your will?
Have you ever attended a similar sale of a passed stitcher’s stash? How did it make you feel? Did it encourage you to make any changes in your stitching lifestyle?
I have actually discussed this with my family and they know that they would just have to make a couple of emails to friends and any of my cross stitch online friends can come and have whatever they want. Mine is actually pretty well organized.
Monday, November 26, 2007

He is out hunting again today but can only get does now. So another stitching day today :-) Wish I could show pics but still not connected online with my computer. I will show all the finishes and the stocking when I am back on.

Thursday- got up and took my shower. As soon as I stepped out and grabbed a towel, the power went out. I was thankful that I still didn't have shampoo in my hair but how was I supposed to blow dry and make it look nice for Thanksgiving day. Power was back on in 30 min. So I missed about 45 minutes of the Macy's Parade. Sat down and stitched while watching the parade and then the dog show. Made the tossed salad after that. Dylan came home from work so we took off for my parent's house. Justin was at his friend's house for a few days so he met us there. Had a nice Thanksgiving with my parents , my sis and bil. My dad seemed to be doing a little better while we were there.
Friday- Dylan wanted me to take him and a friend to the mall so after I worked out at Curves, we headed for the mall. Was packed and I did end up with a pretty decent parking spot. He bought Scott's Christmas gift, bought me lunch and the way we were since he had to be at work by 2. Scott was out hunting and Justin had to work 7am-10am and then back to work again from 4pm-7pm. Scott came home and then we went to his parent's for a family get together. In the afternoon I did get a lot of stitching time in on the stocking while watching the DVR shows:
Ghost Whisperer - 11/9
Women's Murder Club - 11/9
Desperate Housewives 11/11
Today is lazy day. Got up and sorted through the laundry for washing. Washed my face with noxzema and decided no makeup today and wearing lazy clothes, t shirt with sweatpants LOL. I am a sight let me say. Scott and Dylan went hunting for the day and Justin had to work at the station 7am-2:30. I washed dishes and vacuumed and have laundry going all day. After checking everything online I will then sit and stitch on stocking and watch DVR shows, almost caught up. I just remembered I have a few episodes of Grey's Anatomy on the VCR as well LOL.
My computer still isnt online so still using Dylan's laptop, and wait til I can post a pic of the progress on the stocking, I have gotten a lot accomplished on it.
Tuesday, November 20, 2007

I stitched alot today on Fishing Santa Stocking while watching DVR: Friday's General Hospital, todays episode and SMallville 11/8 and Supernatural 11/8.

I have tons of books in my bookcase and listening to alot of them to free up my bookcase will be great. I am reading A Peach of a Murder by Livia J. Washburn.
I didn't get any cross stitching in today but I am going to organize my stash better. I really need to do that and I would like to change scissors and fobs every month as well as getting more of the pretty mesh bags with fabric. I have 3 so far and would like 9 more so I can change them every month. Yes, I am probably a freak LOL.
I didn't watch any TV today either but I did DVR Smallville and Supernatural and taped Grey's Anatomy.

So much has been going on. I went to the 10th Annual Cross Stitch pals Fall Fling in Myrtle Beach and had a blast. I rode with a couple of friends. Ate to much, not enough sleep and bought some stash :-)
Last week DS#1 got his license so I don't have to drive him around anymore. he bought a car back in June so he has that and doesn't have to use my car.
I have been in a cozy mystery reading marathon for some reason. Right now I am reading A Peach of a Murder by Livia J. Washburn. I also bought a Mp3 player and download audiobooks on it to play at work. Right now I am listening to Tara Road by Maeve Binchy.
Also before I left for Myrtle Beach I started a Proboard for cross stitching, reading and media. Check it out
Been catching up on my DVRd shows and watching the new season shows.
Well time to get read some emails and then go to bed.
Wednesday, October 03, 2007

I got a cute ghost wind chime, for Halloween, of course :-) They had a stall for Italian Charms. 5 for $10 and I want to make my one watch into Nascar so I bought Nascar girl, #8, #3 , #12 and one that says Daytona. To eat I had a rueben sandwich , which was very good and DH had 2 hamburgers.
Today is DS#1's anniversary with his boyfriend. So DH and I are dropping them off to a nice restaurant and then doing some shopping. I need to also sit and stitch on the model that I have.

Monday, August 20, 2007
I have been reading a lot of books this summer and joined more reading Yahoo groups. Right now I am into Cozy Mysteries and trying to collect those for reading. I am reading Candy Apple Dead by Sammi Carter and am loving it.
Watching shows that I DVRd over the summer: The 4400 , The Dead Zone, and Kyle XY.
I really like my job and my 90 days will be up August 29. I don't know where the time has gone. Our place is also moving , which is a good thing. Right now we are in an old building that has 3 floors and many other businesses and it is falling apart. The new place is our own building and double the amount of space that we are in now. There are no plans to hire anyone else though as there wouldn't be enough work for another person. The busy months are September - November.
Things seem to be working out between DH and I and I have been in a much better frame of mind. I also plan on blogging more and starting to read my friend's blogs again.
Thursday, June 21, 2007
I haven't been stitching at all or been online much. I just am getting sick of dial up and don't have the time that I used to.
I am reading more and playing Sims2 on the computer.
DS#1 had his Jr Prom and he had a great time. He also bought a car last weekend so now he needs to get his license and get the car on the road. He bought a 96 Contour. Needs some work but between his dad and his brother that shouldn't be a problem.
Tuesday, May 29, 2007
I am hoping to work on this months JCS ornament and am reading Interest of Justice by Nancy taylor Rosenberg
Tonight is the House season finale.
Thursday, May 24, 2007
Last week DH had said he was leaving but we sat down and really talked yesterday and he got his feelings all out and what the main problem was that he was keeping from me. So now we are fixing the mistake that we both have made and we are giving us til january to really work on this marriage and then we will go from there.
This morning I have a job interview for a lab tech job and the hours are perfect, 8:30am-3pm. Only 13 miles from my house :-)
I had to make 4 dozen deviled eggs for our church smorgasbord, this afternoon. This is our big money maker for the church and we started doing it about every month now. I volunteer 3-6.
Thursday, May 17, 2007
Haven't heard anything about a job yet and have resumes out.
I am seriously thinking of selling finished cross stitch pieces on either ebay or my web site along with the beaded scissor fobs. Any thoughts from any of you?
I also am going to be selling Avon online. So all of my friends can order online, will let you know the URL once it is up and running.
Now that all of my TV shows will be ending for the summer, and some ending forever, I will be able to keep up on my blog.
Right now I am stitching up all the sports ornaments that i got behind on. They are for a school function. I also have been reading alot as well. So will start daily posting about stitching and reading also TV watching.

You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog! Since most people don't like being tagged I will leave it up to those of you that want to be tagged to go ahead and post on your blog.

Prayers are needed for my Pastor's family. My Pastor serves 2 churches and her DH was killed in a motorcycle accident on Saturday. He was also a Pastor at 2 churches. DS#1 has been babysitting for them, for several years now and the son is 7 and does not understand what has happened, except that his dad won't be coming back home. She has been helping DH and I through this tough time in our marriage and has been very helpful. Now she will need the support of family, friends and congregation.
I haven't stitched in almost a week. I have been reading a series by Carol Higgins Clark.

DS#1 got Sims2 for Christmas and I am hooked. I loved Sims 1 but this one is so much better. Now DS#1 and I can not find the disc 1 of Sims 1 and we have searched high and low for it. Looked through all DVD , CD and other games cases.
I have been stitching on Gentle Soul by Carol Emmer but haven't taken pics in a while. Will do that tonight.
I also have been reading quite a bit. I just finished Mary, Mary by James Patterson and it was awesome. I am now starting The Chocolate Mouse Trap by Joanna Carl.
Haven't watched much TV either but I did watch the Rose Bowl Parade. Beautiful floats.
