Back from vacation

I had a great time in Canada and have lots to tell you so I will take a few days to share. Tonight I will show you all my stitching I did.
Finished a Crazy January Challenge - JCS Halloween 2010 - By the Full Moon- Ink Circles

Then I pulled out HAED Rapunzel and stitched a few hundred stitches.

Then Sunday I pulled out LK Halloween Rules

I left my house on the 20th and it took me 5 1/2 hours to get to Gail's house. She lives in Metcalf, Ontario, Canada.  I drove by myself and didn't run into any problems.
Was glad to see Gail. Walked in to see her dog and cat. I won over the cat real quick ha ha. His name is Jake and he is a gorgeous cat

This is Gail and her dog Hanna
She is a sweet dog.
We went out for dinner at a local diner. Then went back to her house and I went online, and played Sims 3.

Sunday we went out for brunch at a racetrack/casino. It was really good. We went back to her house and I went through her mags and leaflets. I have a lot more than she does but she has a nice collection. It was a relaxing day.

Monday we went for breakfast at the Ikea store. We don't have one by me so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to shop at one. Yes, I did spend some money but not a lot. I bought 2 throw pillows for my couch, a really pretty lamp, some bag clamps, and a salad spinner.
Then I went through some more of her mags. Fell in love with the mags called Cross Stitch Card Shop and we did end up finding one in the book store so I now own one.

I will continue more of my vacation tomorrow. We went to Ottawa and I saw the Parliament Building and we went on a river cruise. So I will post more pics. I took a ton of pics the whole week.

Night all,

Another finish!

When I got home from work I decided to sit and stitch a couple of hours so I pulled out Stitchy Kitty St. Paddy;s Shamrock Paw. It was a January Crazy Challenge and also a UFO since I started it in January and haven't touched it since. Then after dinner I pulled it back out and finished it.

I watched:
Live with Regis and Kelly
General Hospital
Pretty Little Liars
The Nine Lives of Chloe King

I pulled out what I want to stitch on tomorrow and it is another January Crazy Challenge/UFO It is a Halloween piece and I will be stitching on it through Saturday, if I finish it then I will have 1 more Crazy January Challenge to finish so they will be done by the end of the year, which was the challenge.

Thanks for all the comments, I sooo appreciate them,

I have been stitching

 Stitchy Kitty Easter Egg Paw fob
28 ct light green
1/13/11 - 8/8/11

I also watched a bit of TV tonight.
General Hospital
last night's episode of True Blood 
movie- The Last Song, forgot it was based from a Nicholas Spark's book and didn't have the kleenex ready.

Sorry I haven't been reading your blogs. I am taking this month off from blog reading and doing other things online so that I can spend some more time stitching. I had told myself in May, when the TV season ended that I would watch at least 5 movies a week and listen to 1 audiobook a week. Well nada, it hasn't happened so I am TRYING to do that this month and maybe parts of September, til the new season starts. So I am not ignoring you at all and if you read my blog and leave comments it does mean the world to me and puts a smile on my face, but you don't have to.
I have had a lot of stress the last 2 weeks and I go on vacation on the 20th to Canada, to stay at a stitching friend's house. She doesn't have kids or a husband so a week of uninterrupted stitching. I can not wait!!!
