stitching away

Friday at worked, I finished listening to Midnight In Death by J.D. Robb. it was very good. Last night I finished reading Sweet Revenge by Diane Mott Davidson. I am starting to read Hidden Moon by Lori Handeland and will start an audiobook by Sandra Brown. Not sure if it will ne Chill factor or Ricochet. I have them both to download in my Mp3 player.
I finished stitching Joy tree Ornament by M Designs

I am now stitching on Halloween bag from M Designs . I took the class in Myrtle Beach at the Cross Stitch Pals Fall Fling. The class was fun and I want to finish this bag. I will take a pic when i finish it. I then will stitch on the Autumn piece that goes with it and the 2 fobs. But I do have to stitch a fob for an exchange I am in and it needs to be mailed this week.

I watched season I of The Dresden Files. it is a SciFi series that i just found out about. I am not sure if it is a summer show or what. I read the book by Jim Butcher and was told that they made a series on TV based on his series of books. I loved the DVDs that i watched all weekend and will keep an eye out for the series on Scifi.

I have had a couple of bad days with my car. Why does everything have to be computerized and harder to figure out what is wrong with a car? I have had my car worked on but other codes keep popping up. I can't drive it or I will be in a car accident and I can't trade it in because I still have a 1 1/2 years left on payments. Besides I love my car. it is a '99 Mercury Cougar and it handles awesome!! I have a great stereo system in it as well. I am hoping once it is fixed this time that it will run like mint again.

Justin had Alex over for the weekend, which he is a great kid. Dylan spent Friday with Vanessa at a friend's house and then Vanessa showed up today , to hang out with me while Dylan was at work. She is the best thing to happen to him and he knows it lol.

Shelleen,
The Joy ornament came out great. I love doing her work, except when I have long family names.
