The past 2 days at work have been crazy. Training a couple of young women who will be working at a new lab. Plus having tons of samples ourselves. It was fun though and enjoyed working with them and their boss. He seems like a great guy. He gave my manager and I, an amish cookbook from PA. Just going through it made my mouth water lol.
Last night was library night with the knitters. I had missed the past 3 Mondays. I go and none of the show up lol. So I stitched for an hour then went through their movies and brought home 4.
Tonight's movie was from Netflix and was Morning Glory. Awesome cast, Harrison Ford, Diane Keaton and Rachel McAdams(sp?), Jeff Goldblum. I rate it 4/5.
I have all the backstitching done on the hat and have some more to do before adding the beads. Hoping to finish it this week.
Thank you for all of your comments, I appreciate them :-)

Crazy January Challenge #3 finished

I have been stitching on this for 2 nights and finished it.
From Merry's Heart
JCS 2000
Merry Christmas To Thee
32 ct white linen, WDW - brick

I also stitched on Poof Hat tonight.

I am getting there. Just a little bit of cross stitching left and then a lot of backstitching and then I have to add beads.

I only worked an hour and a half today. I had my yearly doctor's visit. She was happy that I lost 22 lbs since last year. Everything was good and I scheduled my mammogram for 2 weeks.
I also had to renew my drivers license.

I have Dish Network and they gave me 6 free PPV movies to watch by the end of April. So tonight I watched Shrek Forever After. I also DVRd it so I can watch it again.

Today is Justin's 21st birthday, woohoo!!! His friend's threw him a party but no drinking and driving. Dylan is also on his way home now. Called his dad that he is having car trouble so needs to get it fixed tomorrow.

I am changing my hair style and have an appointment tomorrow morning and getting my eyebrows waxed. I can't wait.

Thanks for all the comments, I truly appreciate them. I am over a week behind reading all my friend's blogs so please bear with me for another week to catch up.

Merry Christmas To Thee

Well it isn't really Christmas, although the weather today says it could be. Can you believe it. Spring is now here and we get hit with a storm. Yes, western NY with a storm in March. No Kidding! We have seen snow here in May. Why do NYers psych themselves up that it is Spring. We all know that doesn't matter. Oh well, onto other things.

I pulled out Merry Christmas To Thee by From Merry's Heart , out of the 2000 JCS ornament issue.
I haven't been stitching much since I have been too tired after work. Plus a friend has called me the past 2 nights to chat. Last weekend I went to a friend's house to stitch and just veg out. I had a good time and did stitch on Rocky Mountain Christmas and Poof Hat. No pics though.

Tomorrow is my mom's birthday, Friday is Justin's 21st birthday and Sunday is Dylan's 19th birthday. Dylan is coming home, for the weekend and Justin took the weekend off from work. Scott and I are taking them, and Dylan's girlfriend, out for dinner. Well I am really tired so I will say goodbye.

Oh one last thing. RIP Elizabeth Taylor.

Night all,

The Frog sat and visited for a while

Friday and Saturday stitching was fine.
I had my Book Cross Meeting on Saturday morning and then went to my in laws for dinner.
Here is my progress so far on HAED QS Fragile Heart.

Today I straightened up around the house , did laundry and then sat and stitched on Poof Hat by Ursula Michael.
The frog sat next to me for quite a while on this one. I do not know where he came from and don't know why any of my animals let him in. I have sent him on his way though.

I watched the week's worth of General Hospital and some of Live with Regis and Kelly. I also watched Bones. Then I listened to U is For Undertow by Sue Grafton.

This week I will stitch on Rocky Mountain Christmas.

Tuesday's progress

I did stitch last night but didn't blog. So tonight I am sharing pics of my progress on HAED QS Fragile Heart.
Tonight I watched Megamind, Pretty good and with great rock music. I went to Netflix and rated the movie but it didn't post to Facebook and now I don't see anywheres that says it does anymore. Will have to find another place when you rate them that goes to Facebook.

I also started listening to U for Undertow by Sue Grafton. I have always enjoyed this series.

Today's PC game - Sims 3

Thanks for visiting and the comments,

Saturday SAT and Sunday Halloween SAL

Saturday was pretty busy. I took a huge bag of envelopes to the PO. I am in a Yahoo group where members post a RAK(random act of kindness) list and their addresses so I went through the list and all of my charts that I was getting rid of. I had a LOT! Then I cooked dinner for my in laws. Last Saturday my MIL had  another mini stroke. She was in good spirits and the hospital sent her home. I didn't have to cook but I did go visit  my in laws. Well her speech is hard to understand at times and she does get frustrated trying to get out what she wants to say. But I am so glad she is with us. My FIL is quiet so he doesn't say to much. Prayers for these wonderful people would be appreciated though.
I took my stitching as always and worked some more on HAED QS Fragile Heart
Today we had pretty nasty weather and Dylan and his *girlfriend* and I went grocery shopping. Dylan took groceries back with him and I had to get mine for the week. Some spots were pretty slippery.
I came home and stitched on Poof Hat by Ursula Michael while finishing listening to, Sizzling Sixteen by Janet Evanovich. Love this series :-)
Thank you for all the comments, I appreciate them very much,

Where have I been?

not blogging, that's for sure. I have been stitching though. Not alot. Also playing a lot of Sims2 and Sims3. Going through my blogs that I read and deleting from my list who hasn't blogged in 4-6 months. Also decided not to be in a couple of Bulletin Boards anymore. I just was trying to stitch to many SALs plus my Wips and UFOs. So I now feel calmer lol.
 Just got done doing my nails and am all ready for a date night with hubby. Going to a restaurant we have always wanted to try. I am so hungry right now that I have no clue what I want to eat, prime rib, steak, seafood, pasta. I usually have an idea of what I want but since it is a new place I will have to look at their menu.

Hubby has to work tonight so when we get home I will get my comfy PJs on and watch Smallville and Supernatural while stitching on HAED QS Fragile Heart. It has been a month so I can't wait to pull it out.

Dylan is also coming home this weekend. We bought a futon to put in the extra bedroom, now that Justin is moved out. This way Dylan can be in there when he comes home.
Well time to go and wake up hubby :-)
